Sight Word Game (BANG)

In kindergarten the ladybug is learning sight words.  Every time she finds one in a book she gets so excited.  It's like a game for her.  
So when I found a fun and easy to make a sight word game, I knew I had to make one.  


I used a large empty coffee container, card stock, markers, and adhesive paper.  
I went to picnik and designed a BANG label, printed it on adhesive paper, and stuck it on the front.  

As she learns more sight words we'll add more cards to the can.  
You can find info on how to play HERE.

Gratitude

I'm not gonna cry over spilled milk. 
 Okay,...sometimes I want to cry when something has been spilled for the 3rd time in one day.    


At the risk of sounding cheesy...I am grateful for the spilled milk, all those crumbs and goldfish crackers on the backseat floor of the van, the finger smudges on the walls, and the dinner battles over eating green veggies.  

Because all those little things mean that my life has been blessed with two very busy little munchkins.  They inspire me everyday, and teach me how to savor the little things in life.  

I am thankful for you, Riley and Nate.

December Daily (2011)



This will be my first year making a December Daily album!
I am so excited to see how the final product turns out at the end of the month.  



The album is ready to go filled with pretty reds and aquas.  
I made my album a 8.5 x 6 album.  


I liked Ali Edward's page structure for documenting each day, but wanted to make my own.
Using Microsoft Word I made the boxes and borders.  
I hand stamped the numbers in the corners.






 This project allows you to use left over embellishments and pieces you already have in your stash.  


I have a small basket full of embellishments in reds and aquas that I'll add to the pages as I fill them in with our stories and pictures. 


An album documenting every day in a month ends up being really chunky.  I had to use 3 inch binder rings, which I found out, can be tricky to find!  I have another set of 3 that I'll list in my shop later today, in case you're looking for some.

Do you do December Daily?  Leave me a link to it in the comments.
