Pudding Letters

This week we did a simple activity that I thought looked like a fun idea. Wills has been really into letters recently, and he is great at recognizing them, but he doesn't really get any practive writing. This idea (pinned here) was actaully for paint in a bag, but I thought pudding would be more fun, plus we'd get to eat it.

Pick a letter...

...draw one side...

...and the other...done!

It turns out that Wills liked it for a while, as in we got through the alphabet once. But this is not an extended activity by any means. I found another think to help him learn to write that I am working on, and I'll tell you what that is later.

By the way, the letter cards are these, a Christmas present and one of the things he plays with the most. We love them.

I Have No Good Title For This Post

Since it has been a few weeks since I posted anything but Pinterest Challenge Friday, here are a few random pictures to hold over anyone who doesn't care what I make and comes here for cute pictures.

Yet another silly sleep pose, this time courtesy of Wills.

I gave the boys ham, cheese and crackers for lunch one day, kind of a homemade lunchable. Luke ignored the ham and crackers and made himself a giant cheese cube.

This is as good as it gets for now. I have been trying to make some new things for the shop, and have been slacking on Mom-taking-pictures duty. I'll be back later with more.

Some Recipes I Tried

I have two recipes for ya this week. The first pin (found here) is what I did for the Superbowl. Since we always go to Eric's family's house, I though it would be fun to bring these peanut butter footballs!

As you can see by the picture, I am not great at painting on the laces. But they tasted great!

The second pin (here) is supposed to be a copycat recipe of Olive Garden's breadsticks. Supposed to be. They actually tasted great, but the texture was more like tiny french bread loaves. They had a harder crust than Olive Garden's.

February Houses: Valentine's Day

I have my Valentine's houses done, and they are my new favorite! The original pin is here from Lori at Whimsy Studios, and here are my houses!

I actually still want to write "Be Mine" on that big heart in the middle, but I can't find a good white paint pen. Any suggestions?
