School Picture Day

Mommy forgot it was picture day to start off. I woke up grumpy. Mommy wouldn’t let me pick out my own clothes but I kept bugging her so so finally gave up. I wore my favorite red sweater. I love it so much and people always tell me it looks nice. We were walking to school, it takes so long! Then we saw the crossing guard and I said “have a nice day” to her. She smiled at me and said “enjoy picture day!” Then my mom stopped walking for a second and looked kinda funny like mad but also surprised. She told me she didn’t realize it was picture day and was upset that I was wearing old clothes. I didn’t really care much because I liked what I was wearing, that’s why I picked it out! Mom said it didn’t go with the background she asked for, whatever that means. Here is the proof of my picture, is it good or bad?

 

Mommy doesn’t like it so I will have to do it all over again. I sure hope she remembers the next time. (Side Note from Mommy: “I have marked it on every calandar I own, in hopes of making sure the retakes are fantastic! I always buy them so I won’t have a choice.”)

DIY Socktopus

I don’t like being bored. I’m lucky because Mommy can usually come up with something to do. I saw cute octopus puppets made on a TV show, so mom said we could make some too. They were really easy to make, but I needed help with the cutting part for the legs or whatever they are called when they’re on an octopus. That part made me mad because I like to do it all by myself. These are fun to play with and even my kitty likes them. There weren’t many steps to making them but my favorite part was when I had to go outside and shake, shake , shake to get all the fuzzies off them.

Here is how we made them:

Start with a plastic shopping bag, a dollar store sock of your choice, and some ribbon or an elastic.

Bunch your bag into a ball then stuff it into the toe of the sock. Tie it off with your ribbon or elastic, then trim if necessary.

Trim the bottom 2″ or so of the sock to use as scraps.
Then cut the remaining into 8 tentacles

use the scraps to create your own funky looking eyes! We cut out circles of different colours and glued them together

Me- Gluing the eyes together

Isn’t he soooo cute?!

I just love them! Hope you can make some too! Oh yeah, my Mom told me to mention that this craft cost only $2.00 for two pairs of socks. We had everything else on hand. I’d love to see what your’s look like! Send me a message with your pictures!

Yummy healthier treats

I’m always asking for snacks and here’s one of my favourites. No bake energy bites are really easy to make. Mommy measures out the ingredients and I do the rest.

Getting Ready For Kindergarden

I’m starting “big school” really soon so my mommy has been getting me some cool school supplies. She bought me the best lunch kit ever from Winners, and it’s made by Smart Planet. It’s kinda squishy so it gets small, but pops out to make more room. My mommy got it early so I could practice with it. That way I wont have any trouble when I’m on my own at school! It was tough at first but I finally got the hang of it. It has lots of room for all kinds of goodies. Since I am little my lunch won’t fill the spaces so mommy bought some little containers that fit well inside if I need them. It can be used flat too! How cool is that?! I have a feeling we are going to like this lunch kit! The only downside was our Winners store didn’t have any of the other Smart Planet products so we’ll have to keep our eye out and buy them if we find them.

My lunch kit all “popped open”

It squishes flat so I can save room in my backpack!

All full of lunch and being tested out from backpack to belly!

Do your kids have a cool lunch kit? I’d love to know what kind they have!
