Easter is just around the corner and I wanted to create a fun Easter basket alternative. As the kids get older, I find that some of the cute things I used to do, don’t necessarily fit. We also have cut down drastically on candy and sugary snacks. Because of that, I needed Easter baskets without candy. That’s where these Easter buckets come into play. I love that everything has a place to store it after the day is done.
My oldest is in middle school now. She made the choice to go to school this year. With that has come some new experiences for this homeschool family. In the years we homeschooled, we never put a lot of stock into Valentine’s Day beyond a unit study. However, with my oldest in school now I wanted to put together some tween valentine ideas for her to give her friends. Here are a few of the ideas I put together.

We have been having a lot of fun making slime in the house lately! My friend over at Surviving a Teacher’s Salary shared the base recipe with me and I have tweaked it as needed. to get something I am really happy with. We don’t get snow in Florida but we wanted a Snow slime for the fun of it. So I put together this white glitter slime recipe and we are loving it!
