Taco Pizza

So my lovely husband was sent to the store for tortillas and came home with an 80 of corn tortillas! 80 what am I going to do with 80 tortillas so I starting getting creative. I took the idea of a pizza and a tostada and combined them. I grilled a tortilla in a skillet and once it was brown on one side I flip it and add a light layer of cheese let it melt and then add a mixture of beans, salsa, taco seasoning and sour cream that was warmed. and a small layer of cheese on top. Taco pizza.

Thanksgiving Muffin tin Monday

For MTM this week we did a Thanksgiving theme. We have string cheese, apples (she ate some of them before i could get a picture), bugles for cornucopia's, carrot sticks, celery sticks and turkey grill cheese made with fruit leather and sweet peppers. After lunch we made turkeys from play dough by adding feathers and googly eyes.

Baking soda and vinegar experiment

My husband showed H what happens when you mix baking soda and vinegar a while back and she was totally impressed. only problem she wanted him to do it again and again. So I came up with this solution. I poured some baking soda in a baking pan and I put water in one container with blue food coloring and vinegar in another with purple food coloring. I gave her an eye dropper and we experimented. We talked about what we thought would happen with them and then looked at the differences in the reaction of the water and baking soda vs the vinegar and baking soda. She loved it and was able to see it happen over and over. When she was tired of playing with it we did a grand finally and poured all the vinegar left over in the dish!

Pumpkin Investigation

My daughter loves Sid the Science Kid and how he always investigates thinks. So this year before we carved our little pumpkin we had a pumpkin investigation. I saw this idea someone I think pinterest and had to do it. I just hand made a investigation form, we looked at and wrote down information. I was a lot of fun and we learned a bunch about pumpkins and I loved this project till we got to our last question (How many seeds are in the pumpkin?) can I tell you I had no idea! I will let you see for yourself

434 seeds inside one tiny pumpkin!!!!!!!!!!!! we gathered them in groups of 10 then counted by tens. wow that was hard work

Fall Dress

Last year I made H this pumpkin shirt for our trip to the pumpkin patch. Well this year it is to short so I made it into a dress. I just add fabric to the bottom and a ribbon on top to hide my mess lol and now she is ready to wear it again. I made it a little long so she may be able to wear it next year too.
