Sensory Tub - The Human Body

The idea for this tub comes from one of my lovely readers, Mary, who reached out all the way from Thailand! (LOVE how connected we all are!) Mary asked me for some ideas for a human body sensory tub and I thought - why not make one for James? Next to geography and space, James is fascinated with human anatomy. Thank you, Mary for inspiring me!

Now, I know this isn't the prettiest looking thing, but it is all about human insides, so... :)

Here's what's inside: (bear with me, I had to creative on this one! Biology teachers will cringe, I'm sure!)
:: Kidneys - Kidney beans :D
:: Eyes - googly eyes
:: Small intestines - pink yarn (12 feet of it which is, according to Google, the length of a child's small intestine.
:: Heart - wooden heart
:: Veins - red and blue pipe cleaners
:: Blood cells - red and white flat marbles
:: Bladder - balloon loosely filled with water (HUGE hit with James!)
:: Teeth - wind up toy shaped like teeth
:: Hands - buttons shaped like hands
:: Skeleton - plastic skeleton (and book - see below - both from our Halloween mini unit)
:: Chromosomes - LOTS of x's and y's from my scrapbooking embellishments. I included 15 matching sets, each set has only one x and one y. Next to the bladder, these were James' favorites. He really enjoyed searching through all the kidneys for the "croomzooms". :)

A couple things also included, but not pictured (because I added them later and was too lazy to reshoot):
:: Stomach - balloon filled with beads
:: Surgical tools - tweezers, tongs, and a small bowl

In addition to the sensory tub, we've been looking through our favorite anatomy books (this one and this one), and I decided to pull out this felt pack, too. James also received this awesome "squishy human body" for Christmas and so we've been having fun with that as well.

Disney Family Night: Toy Story

One of the (many) things we're doing in preparation for our big trip to Disney World is to have a Disney Family Night about once a month until we leave . In short, we pick one of our favorite Disney movies and then create a themed night around it. It's a fun way to bridge the long wait!

Last weekend we celebrated Toy Story!
Toy Story is one of my favorite Disney-Pixar movies, and it's a classic in my book. I remember being amazed by how fluid and life like the images were. And I'm a huge Tom Hanks fan, too. Anyway... we had such a fun night with this theme. Here's what we did:

To set the tone, I printed out some posters from here and here, and I arrange various books and toys around the room. We happen to have a Mr. Potato Head, some green army men, an Etch-A-Sketch, and a Barrel of Monkeys on hand. We also had the soundtrack to Toy Story (the 1st) playing in the background.

We prepared dinner together - here's what was on our menu:
:: Make Your Own Planet Pizza - I bought mini Biboli crusts and set out a variety of toppings for us to make our own pizzas. James loved this and said, "Finally, I can make my pizza the way I like it!" which meant adding about 100 pepperonis to his pie. (Mommy vetoed 95 of them.)
:: Lotso's Strawberry Salad - this one is a family favorite. Baby arugula, blue cheese, candied pecans, and strawberries, topped with balsamic vinegar dressing. Y-U-M.
:: Galatic Goo - this was our dessert. It was purple grape jello with star sprinkles on top. Ridiculously easy to make and a HUGE hit with James!
:: Alien Juice - this was our beverage. Crystal Lite lemonade made with sparkling water and a few drops of green food coloring (to give it that alien color). :)

While the pizzas were baking, we played a few games. James received a Toy Story memory game as a birthday present, so we played a short round of that as well as a few turns of "Find the Moon Rocks". For that game I placed a chocolate Hershey's Kiss inside a small piece of tin foil and then gently crumpled it up to resemble a moon rock. I hid these around the house and James went in search of them. :) I also created an activity with the Etch-A-Sketch where we all took turns trying to make certain shapes. James and his dad also made chains out of the monkeys from our Barrel of Monkeys.

I also put together this little guessing game - "Guess How Many Army Men Are In the Jar?" James took one look and - no joke - guessed the correct number within 1. Even my sweet Hubs was off by 5!

Our favorite game was "The Claw Game". I assembled a mystery bag full of Mr. Potato Head parts and created a checklist to go along with it. James had to reach his "claw" inside the bag and without looking, guess which piece he was holding. He checked off the pieces as he went along and afterwards created a finished Mr. Potato Head. Let me know if you're interested in the printable I made for this game - I'm happy to share it!

We didn't use these resources, but I ran across them while planning this night. I thought maybe some of you might like to use them: Toy Story Pre-K Pack & Toy Store Fun Book. And of course there are TONS of ideas on Pinterest and DisBoards.

At the end of each Disney night, James randomly selects the next theme from a basket. Coming up:

101 Dalmatians!! (Awesome movie tickets from here!)

PlanetBox Review & Giveaway!!

~This giveaway is CLOSED~

I'm positive most of you have heard of PlanetBox, but for those who haven't, get ready to learn about a truly awesome resource that's great for EVERYONE!

To quote PlanetBox's website, PlanetBox is:
"lunch transportation for a green generation".
I just love that!

I would have been tickled pink to have a lunch box like this when I was a kid. I had a blue plastic Smurf lunch box (which I still have, btw!). I remember when I'd open it at lunchtime I'd find the little plastic baggies of food were all jumbled together and smooshed after having been pummeled by my matching :) thermos. Oh and I remember the latch on that box, too - that flimsy thing would pop open and my sad little lunch would end up all over the sidewalk. Really, no joke - that happened to me! It's funny to think about now, but even at 7 years old that drove me crazy!

Well, I'm delighted to say that PlanetBox has come up with a fantastic solution to those old lunch box problems. They designed lunch trays with compartments! More than that, the compartments are specifically measured with portion control in mind. And the latch on the box is excellent in that not only does it stay closed when needed, it's easy for little hands to manipulate. No tricky closures here!

Want to know what is really cool about these boxes? They are made of stainless steel which means they are non-toxic, they won't stain, and they don't retain the odors from lunches past! Also, they are completely reusable! Totally eco-friendly AND they're dishwasher safe. Talk about economical and efficient!

Want to know what James would say is the coolest thing about these boxes? The magnets! The founders and creators of PlanetBox (a husband & wife team who are parents themselves) didn't overlook the fact that they were making lunch boxes for kids. They came up with the brilliant idea of making magnet sets to adhere to the outside of the box. They are removable and you can mix and match the many sets!

We've had our PlanetBox for about a year now and we just l-o-v-e it. We've used it quite often over the past 12 months and I'm pleased to say it's still as good as new!

Here's a photo of James and his Planetbox. (This day's meal included: carrot sticks, pitted cherries, blueberries, popcorn, star shaped peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat, and a few gluten free cookie buttons.) James and I have such fun coming up with new ideas for filling up those compartments and new ways to display his food. He enjoys his meals so much and I know he's getting everything he needs and in just the amount he needs.

(Feeling not so creative when it comes to food combos? There are TONS of meal ideas on PlanetBox's Facebook page and an excellent grocery list printable on their store website.)

And with this handy carrying bag, it's super easy for James to tote his lunch to camp. The handle is just his size and the whole system is sleek - not at all bulky. On the outside of the bag there's a place for his water bottle, and a pocket for a mid-morning snack. On the inside is an interior slot for a PlanetBox cold kit, and even a couple little straps that secure utensils or a sweet little love note. :)

We have the complete Rover set, so we also have these awesome little "dippers". We use these containers all.the.time. They are excellent for holding wet and dry foods. And they don't have to be used with your lunch box, either. In fact, both of our dippers are in my diaper bag right now holding cheerios and goldfish crackers! :)

Ok, so now you understand why I'm such a huge fan of PlanetBox. Would you like one of your own? You can hop on over to the PlanetBox shop and buy one now. True, they initial price may seem a tiny bit high, but consider the fact that these are reusable - meaning they'll last you a lot longer than a brown paper bag and plastic baggies! Care for them properly and you'll enjoy your lunch box for YEARS! It ends up being a savings for sure.

You can also enter to WIN a PlanetBox! Yep, that's right, the lovely folks at PlanetBox are very generously gifting a Rover set to one of my readers! And we're talking the COMPLETE set here! (A $60 value!)

One very lucky person will receive:
:: 1 Rover lunch box
:: 1 Magnet set (the design is the winner's choice)
:: 1 Dipper set
:: 1 Carry bag (the color is the winner's choice)

Are you excited?! I am!! I'm thrilled that one of you will get to enjoy the fun and goodness that is PlanetBox! :D

Practical Life

It's been a long time since I put together new practical life work for James. I guess that's because we've moved out of our classroom (it's now Juliet's Montessori bedroom) and school happens at the kitchen table where it's just not conducive to have loads of trays spread about.

But, truth be told, I miss creating these works so this past weekend I assembled four of them and I figure we'll just bring one out at a time. Here's what I made:

Polishing Sunglasses. I thought this was timely given the sunny season that's upon us here in Bermuda. To do this work, James will remove everything on the tray and arrange it neatly on his work table. He'll remove the glasses from the case, use the little brush (in the cup) to dust the lens. Then he'll open the water container (it's colored so he can easily see that the cotton swab he'll be using is wet - it'll absorb the blue color), dip the swab in and then gently coat the lenses. After that he'll use the cotton ball to remove the wetness and the polishing cloth to shine the lenses and the frame. The used materials will go into the waste bin and the work materials will be returned - neatly - to the tray.

Transferring Feathers. I think the photo is pretty self-explanatory. James will use the clothespin to transfer the feathers from one basket to the other and then back again. It's tricky and requires some focus and patience because the clothespin is tighter than a tweezers (though still completely manageable - I always test the work after I put it together) and the feathers are very fluffy and not very easy to "pinch". I know James will like this one. Oh and PS: a little Bermuda shout-out since I'm using the Somerset Cricket team's colors!

Changing Batteries in a Flashlight. We're in the midst of hurricane season here and one thing I guarantee you every house on this island has is AT LEAST one flashlight! We have several throughout the house and this one is James', which is kept in his room. To do this work James will unscrew the cap of the flashlight, remove the current set of batteries within, and discard them safely. He'll then open the little wooden chest (I always like to provide fun little container - it adds to the element of interest in the work) and remove the new set of batteries. To finish, he'll insert them into the flashlight, screw the cap back on and switch on the light to be sure he completed the work correctly. If not, he'll repeat the steps. Positive this one will be a huge hit and ALL of flashlights will be in for a battery makeover. :)

Open & Close Containers. I bought these little paint containers a couple of years ago. I knew they had some school potetnail (outside of holding paint), but I wasn't sure what. Lo and behold the day has come for these gems. They're pretty small, so again it'll take some patience to open them just right so the contents don't fly out! Inside of each container I put a single alphabet bead. To do this work, James will open a container, remove the bead and place it in the little wooden bucket :), then "discard" the now empty container into the other bowl. He'll repeat this until every container is emptied. Then he'll set out all of the letter beads onto his work table and proceed to identify as many words as he can spell. He'll record them in the little homemade notebook. James has really been into spelling lately, so I think he'll like this one, too.

After making these I was thinking it would be fun to do these more often. Maybe a few every week or two? Would you all like to see more of these practical life works?

A Church Bag

Our church doesn't have a Sunday school program that runs during mass, so James sits with us. He's behaves well - he doesn't fidget (too much), he's quiet, he joins in on the calisthenics of mass :), and he enjoys the singing. But I can see that James sort of tunes out whenever a reading or the sermon is taking place. I think it all just goes WAY over his head.

So, I put together this "church bag" for him to bring along to mass every Sunday. I found this wonderfully nerdy little tote here. It has a handle and is just the right size for James.

Inside of the bag are various religious items to hold James' attention and more importantly to remind him about *why* we are at church in the first place.

Now, I know there are some who would scoff at my decision to give James something to do during mass (the nuns from my elementary school would demand full attention, whether you "get it" or not). : ) And I'll admit I thought that way for a long time, too, but I decided that - while James is still so young - there's no harm in providing useful and relevant materials.

Here's a sample of what I might include in our bag. Note: not ALL of these things go in the bag each Sunday. I rotate them out and provide just a book or two, a prayer card, his favorite bible, and an activity sheet of some sort. I found the Catholic books at our local thrift shop (imagine my surprise!), the prayer cards on Ebay (they are from the 1940's and are so special, I just love these), and the Early Readers books are from here

Getting Ready for Mickey! - Part 3

I've been having so much fun making things in preparation for our trip to Disney World this fall. I'm reeaaallllyy excited about this trip and even though I know it'll be an amazing time without my help, I'm doing what I can to add a little extra magic here and there. :)

Here are a few new things I've done:

~Color Book~
Seeing this idea on Pinterest and thanks to my friend at The Adventures of Bear, I put together this little color book for Juliet to look at on the airplane. I used those free Disney paint chips found at Home Depot and adhered the word of each color on the back of the chip.

I wasn't able to get an actual postcard from Disney World, so I made one myself! SO easy! I took a regular ol' postcard (from Bermuda) and double-stick taped a Disney image on the front. I used Disney stickers to cover up the Bermuda photo descriptions on the back of the postcard. I wrote a cute little message "from Mickey" and popped it into the mailbox. James checks the mail each day and what a treat it was for him to find a postcard from Mickey! (Btw, he didn't even notice my faux postcard switcheroo). :)

~Autograph Book~
This isn't an official autograph book, it's actually a Disney encylopedia. It's awesome. Full of color and fun descriptions of most Disney & Pixar characters. We'll be focusing on penny pressing for this trip, and since this book is a bit heavy we'll bring it along only to the character meals. Another fun keepsake!

~Disney Family Nights~
These have been a HUGE hit at our house. We ALL look forward to these theme nights. Since my last Getting Ready for Mickey post we've had a Three Caballeros night and a Lion King night. Up next is Toy Story. So much fun!

~Goodies Straight From WDW~
Some friends of ours visited Disney in the spring and being the sweethearts they are, they brought us back some goodies - maps, an Epcot passport book, a 3D place mat (James loooves this!), a sweet book about Duffy, a portfolio for our pressed pennies (yay!), and a "1st visit" button! The park guides were total Disney planning candy to me - I loved getting a sneak peek at the schedules.

Whilst taking my daily stroll through the lovely land of Etsy, I ran across these a-dor-a-ble Disney-inspired dresses. Needless to say I ordered a "few". ;) (Psst... stay tuned because I'll be hosting a giveaway for this shop next month!)

~Stroller & Stroller Tags~
I went back and forth about our stroller for Disney. We have a MacLaren, which is good and has served us well, but it's not ideal for theme parks, imo. I read this post about the top 10 things you'll want in a stroller and I decided to buy a (red) City Mini stroller for our trip. Two words: LOVE IT. Best stroller ever. I just found out it's actually the same one the Orlando stroller rental companies use! As for the tags, one tidbit of advice I received from a friend is that after you come out of a ride it's easy to lose sight of your stroller in the veritable Sea of Strollers at Disney World. I saw this idea via Pinterest and came up with something for our stroller. To make these I just used some scrapbook paper, ribbon, and a letter sticker on the reverse side of the tag. I laminated them to keep them dry and intact. Sure, we make look totally dorky. And maybe the tags won't help. Or we may be those folks who spot their stroller right away. We'll see!

~Guide to the Magic For Kids~
I'm currently hosting giveaway for this awesome guide book. Click here to read my thoughts on it and to enter to win. Two thumbs up!!

my little mouse
~Mouse Ears~
These were super easy to make. A bit of felt, a bit of ribbon, two snap clips, and a glue gun.

~Brave Sensory Tub~
Have you seen the new Disney movie, Brave? It is sooo good! James and I loved it and of course I had to make a sensory tub. :)

That's all for now! I'll have one more "part" in this series and TWO more Disney giveaways this summer! Click here to see other parts to this series.

Along Came the Tooth Fairy

We received quite a surprise a few weeks ago when found out James had two loose teeth! I wasn't expecting this for another year or so as he just recently turned 5 years old. I suddenly realized I needed to put my tooth fairy hat on and plan out something special.

There are tons of cute tooth fairy pouches and boxes on Etsy, but I decided to make my own. I made this little pouch out of felt. It took my all of 10 minutes to do it, thanks to my handy dandy glue gun!

I modified the tooth chart provided in this post and made a booklet out of it, printing out a sheet for each tooth to be lost. James will color in which tooth he lost and write in the other information which includes the date, his age, and how the tooth came out. I thought this would make a fun keepsake.

I reached out all of you lovelies on Facebook asking what the going rate was for teeth. When I was little it was a whole quarter lol! I received a wide variety of responses - everything from $1 to a whopping $20. I think the majority of folks give $1-$2, with the first lost tooth bringing in a bit extra. Someone even had the lovely idea to give books instead of money!

Since James lost both of his teeth within 5 minutes of one another, we decided to give him two $2 bills (Bermuda has $2 bills as a part of their currency). We also included an old keepsake of my husbands - a silver dollar coin from the 1970's. He also received a letter from the tooth fairy (I used this one as a guide and altered it to fit our needs), and a little gift (some angry birds wall decals from our in-home store).

Going forward we'll give him $2 per tooth, and a collectible coin. No other gifts or letters. We just did that because it was the first loss. :)

Now... what to do with the teeth that have come out... does anyone know the best way to store these little guys? What do you do when your children lose their teeth?

Guide to the Magic For Kids Giveaway!

~This giveaway is now CLOSED~

People are getting very excited in our house now that our trip to Disney World is just around the corner! To share some of the magic we're already feeling, I'm hosting a series of Disney giveaways this summer! Last month it was an adorable bow set from Ruby & Sue, and this month it's....

An interactive Disney World guide book for kids!
This book is ah-mazing. It's called The Guide to Magic For Kids and it's a MUST-HAVE for any child visiting Disney World! This book is filled with tons of cool stuff:

(click any photo for a larger view)
Each park has its own section - this is an example of the France pages in Epcot. Each country's page offers a space for kids to get a stamp, an autograph, and to learn that country's greeting! Every park page provides a place for kids to rate their experience, too - love it!!

Here are sample pages for the Fantasyland portion of Magic Kingdom - look at how fun this is!! There's a place for kids to "check off" which attractions they visited by applying matching stickers, and also a "Where Am I?" section - a sort of visual scavenger hunt!

There are even journal pages, and this is what totally won me over. I have always been a thought-keeper (hence this blog!) and I have many, many journals/diaries from my life. It warms my heart that this will be James' *first* journal! There are quite a few pages provided and each day gets its own two page spread complete with a weather tracker and boxes for your child to fill in their favorites from the day!

I l-o-v-e this book. Seriously. The amount of activity it provides, the way it's organized, and all the tips offered in a kid-friendly way - it's just so unique and special. James and I really enjoyed looking through it and we can't wait to fill it up with his Disney World memories. What a fantastic keepsake!

Tim Foster, the creative genius behind Guide to the Magic, has generously offered to gift one of these books to one of you! It'll be just the thing for your Disney World trip. And consider this: even if you're not planning a trip now, go ahead and enter - you can save it for when you do visit Disney World. And even if you're not planning a trip ever, go ahead and enter - surely you know someone who'll be visiting Disney World and this book would make an excellent gift!

Here's what you need to do to enter:
Mandatory entry:
1. Leave a comment on this post.

Extra entries:
2. Like Counting Coconuts on Facebook and leave me a separate comment on this post letting me know you have/already do.

Summer Playdough

I made a fresh batch of playdough the other day, this one has a summer feel to it. :)

Using my tried and true playdough recipe, I split this batch into two and added some food coloring and yummy smelling extracts (coconut and banana).

As soon as I had the dough colored and scented James wasted no time and plunged right into our big bucket o' cutters!

DIY Trash Bag for the Car

I have been on this huge organizational kick lately - cleaning out drawers, closets, cupboards, you name it! As I was cleaning out our car the other day, I noticed bits of trash (and gooey used gum!) here and there and I realized I really needed to come up with an easy way for all of us to properly dispose of our rubbish. After a quick inspirational search on Pinterest, this is what I came up with...

Using some fabric leftover from another project, I hand stitched a basic pouch, and attached a bit of ribbon and a couple flowers to it (hey - just because it's a trash bag, doesn't mean it can't be pretty, right?!). I wanted something that could be reusable so I sized the pouch to fit around a brown paper lunch bag. When it's full I'll simply remove the paper bag, toss into our regular trash bin, and then insert a new paper bag into the fabric pouch. Easy peasy!

Here it is in action. (You'll kindly ignore all the beach sand in my car!) You can see the ribbon loop hangs around the drive shaft. It's very handy and - best of all - keeps the trash OFF of the floors (and doors!). I made a second one to hang off of the back of the passenger seat which is in front of James' car seat.

I whipped this together in about 30 minutes, though I expect someone with a sewing machine could do it in about 10. I totally eye-balled this project, so I'm afraid I have no dimensions/measurements to share.

~Thank you for your comments!~
