I can’t believe it is already November! That means Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Our family likes to use this time to think about all that we are thankful for. This year we decided to make cards for our close family and friends.  With all the pretty colored fall leaves and a few nice flowers left in the garden, we tried out the ALEX My Flower Press so we could use them to decorate our cards.

Did you know that November 3rd is National Sandwich Day? It sure is! And what better way to celebrate than by playing with the ALEX Jr. Stretchy Sandwich? We invited one of the cutest babies in town, Yehuda, over to play. He just turned one and we thought he had enough teeth to eat a sandwich!

In honor of Pablo Picasso’s birthday this week, I got the girls the ALEX Magnetic Artist Easel. Lori (age 4) enjoys painting on the easel so much in her preschool, but there is only one for the whole class. Now, the girls can be artists all the time!

Try Out This Recipe For A Spooky Dessert!

October 26, 2011 at 09:00 | Posted in Kid Concoctions, Play@Home Mom, Recipes, Reviews | Leave a comment

Lori and I tried a recipe from the ALEX Kid Concoctions book and we wanted to share!

Just in time for Halloween, here is how to make Swamp and Snake Dessert:

You will need:
1 cup of pre-made vanilla pudding (we made a larger quantity and served ours as dessert for the whole family)
3-4 drops of green food coloring
Gummy snakes or worms
Crushed vanilla wafers

Instructions:
1. Mix the pudding and food coloring in a bowl until well blended.
2. Spoon the pudding into a dessert dish.
3. Sprinkle the top of the pudding with the crushed vanilla wafers.
4. Add gummy snakes or worms and serve.

Lori had fun stirring, scooping and, of course, tasting her wormy dessert! EWWW!
