My name is Shannon, and I feel so honored to be a guest on Oopsey Daisy today! I blog over at Mommyapolis, a site geared towards all of us extremely busy mom's who need some quick ideas to keep our little ones busy!
I am the mommy of 3 little boys we call the "S" brothers ages 5, 4, and 8 months. I have been a teacher for the past 12 years teaching everything from first grade to elementary reading and most recently, morning Kindergarten. Teaching half-day Kindergarten allows me the opportunity to be a little bit professional and a little bit stay-at-home Mom! This year I'm going to try out being 100% stay-at-home Mom. I'll let you know how it goes!
Today I thought I'd show you a quick and easy craft you can do with your kids that has a bit of a fall or back to school theme. I call them "Apple Lolli's."
1. Preheat your oven to 250F and sort through all those colorful Jolly Ranchers.
2. Put your red jolly ranchers in a plastic baggie and crush them with a hammer to form smaller pieces (don't crush too much because you don't want super small pieces). Repeat this process with your green jolly ranchers. I'll be honest, I had my kids do this and they LOVED it.... I thought maybe we should do it outside, but after experimenting myself I found it doesn't take much to smoosh the jolly's so we did it inside!
I really want to try these fun bath paints with Little Man!
I adore Shannon's handprint crafts like these Santa's.
You will find all kinds of yummy recipes too... like these homemade popsiciles!
