S is for Seuss! {Mommy School Unit}

It's time for a new Mommy School Packet!

And it's a good one!

Download is available at the end of the post.

I have always loved Dr. Seuss books!  I have collected so many through the years. I have always known that I wanted to do a Dr. Seuss-themed Mommy School unit. I'm planning to spend the next 2-3 weeks teaching all about Dr. Seuss books!  And with The Lorax movie coming out, I think a mommy/son date to the movies will be in order!

This packet came along with a dilemma.  Each time I create a new packet, I obtain specific permission to use the graphics or clip art.  There are many companies such as DJ Inkers and My Grafico that have very generous terms of use when it comes to using their graphics for educational use.  I have spoken with the owners of these companies to obtain specific permission.  However, finding Dr. Seuss-specific clip art that I could share with you was a bit tricky.  Instead, I opted to offer a wealth of ideas centered on Dr. Seuss books with some helpful templates and patterns that I created myself.   I hope you understand!

But not to worry!  There are still 72 pages of fabulous ideas, all centered on some of my favorite Dr. Seuss Books!

Here are some of the concepts covered:

Letter of the Week: S

Number of the Week:  3

Shape of the Week: Diamond

Theme of the Week:  Dr. Seuss

Song of the Week:  Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Here are just a few sneak peeks:

Goldfish graphing to go along with One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.

Green eggs and ham ABC's to go along with Green Eggs and Ham.

Alphabet stamping activity to go along with Dr. Seuss's ABC.

And of course there are many more surprises in there!

My name is Corie and I am from the website, The Dating Divas! I have been married to my man for almost ten years. It is so easy to get lost in the daily shuffle of life and forget to “date your spouse.”  The Dating Divas consists of eleven girls who love to date our husbands!  We post original, inexpensive and fun date ideas that are a perfect solution for any marriage! We also feature crafts, marriage tips, ideas for holidays, and SO MUCH MORE!

We enjoy dating our hubby's so much that we want to share our ideas with YOU.

We live in a world where everything needs to be hassle- free and fast!

How would you like a date night in a bag, sort of like fast food? This date idea can be ready in a jiffy!  We know life can get hectic and this idea is something you can prepare now and have ready whenever you need it.  I like to use our date in a bag whenever the kiddos are in bed and we actually have a little bit of free time.  A big thanks to Aileen from Lil' Buckaroo Designs for the incredible printables!

Introducing......Date Night in a Bag!

You can make your very own date night in a bag! The first thing you need to do is grab a bag. I found mine at the Dollar Tree for $.50. Then, all you need to do is glue the printable bag cover on the outside of the bag.

Download Bag Cover here!

P.S. Did you notice the "His" tag on the bag? That tag simply means it is "His" turn to plan and fill the date bag. After "His" turn, there is a tag that means it is a "Hers" turn.

Download "His & Her Tags" here!

The Date in a Bag Ingredients

After you get a bag, you need to think of a date idea to go inside of it. My husband and I wanted to see the movie, Red. So I Netflixed the Red movie and bought a ton of red treats to go with the movie.

I then put all of the items in a bag and voila, date night in a bag is ready to go!  Now whenever we have a chance for a date night...we are SET!

How would you like TEN different date ideas to put in your bag?

Jamberry Summer Camp Post {Brown Paper Packages}

It's Friday.  It's summer.  And Summer Camp is here!
Do you have blogging idols?  I do.  And one of them is here today!
Say hello to Kierste from Brown Paper Packages.  This is one talented lady, and I LOVE this fun and yummy idea!
Hello Oopsey Daisy readers!

I'm Kierste, from Brown Paper Packages, and I am delighted to be here today.

I absolutely love Alison's Summer Camp series--what a fabulous idea! I Reading is a big part of life at our house, and we have many favorites.
One of our most-loved is Jamberry, by Bruce Degen. 
  
It's nearly impossible to read this only once through per sitting.  The words are utterly charming and delightfully irresistible.  I simply cannot tell you how many times we've read this book!  Every one of my kids loves it, and I have to admit, it's a personal favorite of mine too. I knew it would be perfect for this post!
What is this book all about?  Berries, berries for jam! So, what did we make?  Jam, of course!

Freezer jam is super easy to make, and oh so yummy.  In less than an hour you could have your very own homemade jam! It's also a really fun way to get your kids involved in the kitchen and enjoy an afternoon together. When you're done, share some with the people you love.  It makes a great thank you, thinking of you, or a sweet just because.

I like to use the liquid pectin...all you need is strawberries, sugar, some lemon juice, and the pectin.  I follow the recipe that is included in the box, and they are laid out in an easy to follow step-by-step manner.

I used half-pint jars--a great size for gifts.  If you're making some for your own family, and know you'll go through it faster, you can always use a larger size.

After my jam was ready, I made some fun printables for a lid topper and tag--perfect for giving!

I inserted them into a Word document, sized them to a little smaller than 2 inches, then printed them onto cardstock. I used my trusty 2 inch circle punch to cut out the tags, along with some scrapbook paper. I distressed all the edges using Distress Ink (Vintage Photo). Using double stick tape, I adhered one of the text circles to the top of the lid. For the tag, I taped two circles together--wrong sides together.  One side is the cute scrapbook paper, and the other side tells the recipient what type of jam it is, and how long it is freezer-safe.

Now you're ready to share...and to eat!

Printable directions:  Right click on desired image, and select save as.  Once saved to your computer, insert into a Word document (or similar) and re-size to a little less than 2 inches if you are using a 2 inch circle punch.

A huge thank you to Alison for asking me to be here, and to all of you for reading. I hope you'll come by Brown Paper Packages and say hi--I'd love to have you!
Happy reading!
Kierste
