Pool Party Blog Hop


I am so excited to get my new blog started with a Bog Hop Pool Party to celebrate my friend Celeste's birthday (From The Education Highway)!  This is going to be a fun-filled event brimming with great summer ideas, recipes, freebies and a giveaway!  Plus, find a useful ebook at the end of this post containing information about all the sponsors of the giveaways.


Now, the summer break is a lovely long vacation, and while it is wonderful having the children at home, you might run out of things to keep them busy and end up feeling frustrated.  When frustration kicks in, I always resort to baking with my children.  Whether it be a store bought pre-mix or something a little more adventurous, which actually involves measuring, sifting and following detailed instructions, we tackle it.  My daughter is five and there is nothing that brightens her mood as much as when I suggest baking!

I have found that the more she is allowed to do, the better, so I have a few recipes that she can take ownership of and perform most of the steps.


I must admit that I have a sweet tooth and my view is the only reason why I have dinner is so that I can have dessert.  Now, I wish that I could indulge every evening, but that would not be the right decision, so when we have guests or are invited to friends' homes, I like to offer to whip up something yummy for dessert to take along.  My favourite treat is Lemon Crunch!  It is a delicious, lemony fridge tart, which is quick to make and is always a winner (plus it is easy enough for my daughter to help make).  Below you can see my daughter preparing the biscuits for the base:

I also find board games are a winner in my house,  It is rather challenging now that my son is at the age where he wants to 'destroy' every constructive thing that we are doing (he is 22 months), so we play when he is having a nap.

 I have a set of language board games in my store which focus on  long vowel sounds.  They are offered with and without QR codes and can offer some spelling practice as well as entertainment during the vacation.

Be sure to check out the bundles to get the set at a reduced price!


Celeste, from The Education highway is also hosting a giveaway where you can win some great resources.  I have donated my Long A Vowel Sounds Clip Cards, and they are in Giveaway Pack 1.  Be sure to enter below:
