Fun & Super Easy Acorn Treats

Posted by Hallee on Sep 27, 2013 in Desserts, Food Art, Hallee's Galley, Parenting, preschool activities, Recipes, Snacks

My boys love gathering acorns on the walk to school. They both have acorns in almost every pocket of their backpacks, and there is no telling how many they’ve buried in our yard, hoping to grow a tree.

So, when I saw this snack, I couldn’t help but get the supplies needed to make it!

Cosmetic Pads Snowman Craft

Posted by Hallee on Dec 2, 2010 in homeschooling, Parenting, preschool activities

The other day, Scott asked for a snow-day for school. Even though it was a sunny 60 degrees, we decided to make snowmen for a craft.

I didn’t have any cotton balls. I figured we’d just cut circles out of construction paper. But, in the search for cotton balls, I found these!

A Clue

Posted by Hallee on Oct 29, 2010 in Parenting, preschool activities, Raising boys

We are not a sports oriented family. Kaylee loves to play softball and is very gifted in it. We love going to her games. I’m looking forward to the boys being in sports. But to watch any other kind of sports or even care about any other kind of sports simply doesn’t happen in my family.

ABC’s & 123’s Hallee the Homemaker Way

Shopping one day, Scott brought to me a can of kids’ pasta in ABC and 123 shapes. This was an organic version of Chef Boyardee’s famous product, but the ingredient list was as long as my arm and it cost $3. So, I told him, “No.” He put the can back then pointed my attention to pasta made in the same shapes.

Mud

Posted by Hallee on Jul 22, 2010 in homeschooling, Parenting, preschool activities, Raising boys

I took a small ceramic plate and made five separate globs: red, blue, green, yellow, orange, and purple. I put it in between two boys who each had a sheet of construction paper. We’ve done this before – we do this often. Painting with brushes, sponges, fingers — none of it is new. But this time, Scott decided to lay his entire hand on the globs of paint at one time. With glee, he smeared his hand over his yellow construction paper and exclaimed at the fact that the colors all mixed together made brown.

‘Cause They’re Whose Clues? Blue’s Clues!

Posted by Hallee on Jul 15, 2010 in Parenting, preschool activities, Raising boys, Raising girls, Raising teens

She babysat for me a few weeks ago on a day she just didn’t feel like babysitting. I had to go to an office supply store while I was out, and I saw this pad of sticky notes. Kaylee’s favorite color is orange. I couldn’t help but buy them. The next morning, this was on my bedroom mirror.

Little Helpers

Posted by Hallee on Jul 13, 2010 in Parenting, preschool activities, Raising boys, Raising girls

The first time Kaylee ever kneeded dough, she still had a pacifier in her mouth (I wish I could find that picture.) That made her younger than 3. Now, at 13, she can make anything. She can read just about any recipe, follow the instructions, and create. I let her cook without restraint, and have, just this year, started letting her cook even if I’m not home.
