There are a great deal of amazing online resources that have been created because of the lockdown/quarantine situation we’re currently living in. One of them is the ‘Home Safari’ from Cincinnati Zoo, and we’ve been using this as one of our learning resources this spring.

Two years ago I made an Easter playdough mat for Penguin, and posted about it here: Happy Easter Playdough Mat . At the time, we had very recently moved into our house, and the cables for my scanner/printer were somewhere in a box… so I couldn’t scan and share the playdough mat as a printable, as … More Free Printable: Happy Easter Playdough Mat

On every other evening of the week there are two different meals served at our house, as Penguin will only really eat a couple of different meals other than pizza, and … More Saturday Night Is (Always) Pizza Night!
