Five For Friday

It's Friday!  You know what that means.  Link up time again with Doodle Bugs Teaching.

We did some new sensory activities this week.  K, my 2 year old, loves sensory bin activities and playing with things like playdough.  So I made a fresh batch of orange playdough.  I found a recipe that uses Kool-Aid which I hadn't tried before.  The first batch was tropical punch and smelled yummy but something went wrong and it wasn't the right consistency.

I also made "Moon Rocks" after finding the inspiration on Kim's blog at Life Over C's.  She has a lot of great sensory ideas.  This was super easy - black beans, some glue & water and glitter.  Once it dried we broke the clumps apart.  I threw in some space foam shapes that I had on hand.  Boom, done.  Happy kid!

I've also been busy with some adult crafts.  I had a baby subway art order from my cousin and I also had to make one for my sister for her wedding shower.  

In addition, I promised my sister to make her a wifey shirt for her upcoming wedding.  She saw it online and I was shocked that it was over $50.  I told her my handy dandy Silhouette machine could make it for cheaper.  And I did.  I like how it came out with that font and using a sponge to make the ink look distressed.  I'm thinking up other words I might want on a shirt of my own.

Here is what I'm reading.  No not at the same time.  I am not that person.  I can only read one at a time.  I had heard the Mindy Kaling one was funny so I thought I'd try it.  It is funny.  I haven't laughed a ton but I totally picture her character Kelly on the office reading it outloud in my head.

The Lauren Graham book has been on my list for over a year.  I loved Gilmore Girls so I'm all about supporting Lauren Graham.  I've heard it is written similarly to Gilmore Girls and they are trying to turn it into a show.  I'm excited I quickly found it on a shelf after Storytime this week.

Almost finished with another kindergarten product.  This is mini books for each numbers 1-30.  Each book is 8 pages long.  Here are a few sample pages.

Did you get your free U2 album on iTunes this week?  We saw U2 a few years ago in Minneapolis and they were awesome.  I don't know that I own any of their cds but I'm all about free.  I'm about to go listen right now while I make dinner.

Have a great weekend!
