Welcome to my new readers and to those of you returning to this space! When I shut down my personal blog (temporarily, it’s up and running again) one thing I knew for sure I did want to bring over to this space is my weekly-ish Worthwhile Reads and Lovely Things posts. These are some of my favorite posts to write.
Thanks for joining me for the Simple Kids version of WRaLT! Now, let’s get to the good stuff!
Here are this week’s worthwhile reads and lovely things …
Find of the Week: we’ve been using this giant bubble recipe that we found on the Happy Hooligans blog and have had good success with it. We’ve been using corn syrup in place of glycerin, mainly because I haven’t been able to find any glycerin at any of the stores we’ve been to lately (local folks, any tips on where to find this around here?) This recipe makes sturdy bubbles that do grow into giants with the right combination of bubble wand and windy day.
Blogs: here are some worthwhile reads I came across in my browsing lately …
- The Summer issue of TEND magazine is out
- 100 Not- Boring Writing Prompts for Middles School and High School ::: Small World at Home
- 9 History Movies for Kids ::: Edventures with Kids
- The life-changing magic of tidying up, for kids ::: Modern Mrs. Darcy
Local Loves: a few weeks ago my family and I found ourselves at one of the newest businesses here in our hometown of Fortville, Kewpie’s Kloset. It’s a children’s resell shop located on Main Street (right next door the the ice cream shop) that sells quality resell kids’ clothing and some handmade and new items, too. Prices range from $1.99 to $80 and I was impressed with the inventory – lots of fun items at a sweet price. Our friends at Towne Mama recently did a write up about this sweet resell shop. You can check the shop out on facebook, too.
School Days: We do homeschool year round, but we’re taking a few weeks off to mark the official end of the year and to give our brains a break before we start again as 8th, 3rd, and 1st graders.
