Masks are a must, so why not add some extra style…

Masks are here to stay — at least for a long while. One of our favorite ways to wear a mask (and not lose it) is to wear a mask chain. Have you tried it? We have found two sites that make the chains… and the chains are made by KIDS. Plus, each company donates a portion of their proceeds to charity. How great is this! Take a look. You may want to order one – or more!

The Day I Put Money into a Kickstarter Campaign

An ad came up on my computer and in less than 10 seconds I had clicked, “Yes,” and sent my credit card number. Now the amount wasn’t much, so what could I lose? You’re wondering what a mom, grandma and educator would jump at so fast and help someone she doesn’t even know with a new invention. Are you ready? The Building Brick Waffle Maker! Okay, if I were to ask every person I know who has a child in their life, to invest in a waffle maker that makes Lego-like pieces, I’m positive they’d click “invest” as fast as I did!

Creating New Holiday Traditions

Embrace the idea of holiday chaos with the family! This is what makes times memorable and shareable, and will forever be a highlight.

Everyone is given a little piece of paper and they write down what they are grateful for or what adventure or experience has happened, and what they look forward to in the coming year.

You Ate 54 Cow Brain Tacos in 8 Minutes?

An interview with the World’s Record Competitive Eater, Joey Chestnut
an exclusive feature compiled by Victoria Waller, Ed.D, with questions by Izzy and Sam, 6 years old

I will never, ever be surprised by what children’s passions are. I teach to their passions because when they are interested, they learn. For all parents and grandparents who are home with kids now and want a fun activity to do, find someone the kids are interested in, look up interesting facts about them on the internet and write them a letter. I’ve even had a child write Robert Ballard, the discoverer of the Titanic, and he wrote back.
