Quick and Easy Science Experiment - Mother Goose Time

August is all about SCIENCE with Mother Goose Time!  Little Guy LOVES science experiments, and really just loves the word science, so he was pretty excited when I told him about it. 

There are quite a few experiments to do this month (including his favorite baking soda and vinegar experiment - although he has done it before, I am pretty sure it will be his favorite all over again!), and we started with a project that mixed science and literacy!

It was called Spicy Name.  First I wrote his name on a nametag.  I should have let him write it, but I wanted it to turn out pretty...  Anyways, I wrote his name, then handed him a cotton swab and a glob of glue.  His job was to trace his name in glue.  After that, I got out some cinnamon (you could use a variety of spices for a classroom of kids, I stuck with cinnamon and ginger because of the consistency) and let him sprinkle it on the glue.  Then we shook off the extra and VOILA!  A Spicy Name!

They turned out pretty well.  I did one with my name since I wanted to share this fun project, but I try to keep Little Guy's name private.  I didn't use enough glue on my "H".  He did a good job tracing the "M" and gets better at writing the letter "M" all the time.  Its the only one he writes well, but I guess you have to start somewhere!

We use Mother Goose Time curriculum free of charge in exchange for sharing our pictures and experiences!  All opinions are our own.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs

- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…
