Enjoy Some Afterschool Snacks  {good (CHEAP) eats}
Tasty ideas for quick breads, fruit and vegetables.

10 Healthy On-the-Go Snack Recipes  {fAnnetastic food via Inner Child Fun}
Recipes featuring whole wheat, oats, and Quinoa.

Tarragon Chicken Dish  {What’s Cooking With Ruthie}
Looked like a rustic dish to make one day.

Ever wonder how long you can store food before trashing it?  {This Mama Cooks!  On a Diet}
Handy list!

{30} Smart Tips for Your Kitchen  {Food Your Way}
Really interesting ideas!  I’ve never heard of using your toaster to make grilled cheese sandwiches, softening butter with a rolling pin, making sippy cups from mason bottles or dispensing pancake batter from a water bottle.

“Mommy, It’s Not Fair!!” Is it Bad Behavior or Just Human Nature?  {Mommy With Selective Memory}
Suggestions on handling sibling rivalry.

Like Sunshine on a Cloudy Day  {Crafting My Life}
How creating a space that works for you brings some sunshine into your life on an otherwise dreary day.

Teaching a Play Based Curriculum  {Teacher Tom}
How play-based teaching is more of an act of an artist than an “teacher”.

TV: A Tool or “The Devil”  {Living Peacefully With Children}
How to strike a balance between having the TV on all day (believe me, this is doable) and not ever speaking of “the devil”.

A Doctor Responds: Don’t Potty Train Your Baby  {Huffington Post via Aha! Parenting & Janet Lansbury}
Interesting discussion on the dangers of holding, potty training too early and constipation.

What’s That You’re Thinking  {Aha!}
This is so appropriate for me to read this week.  I feel that fear is paralyzing me…  I’m going into town (meaning the capital city) to visit a friend and instead of being excited about seeing my friend again, I’m negatively obsessed with driving there and back.😦

{30} Smart Ideas to Make Life Easier  {Organizing Your Way}
Really clever ideas with links on each one that provides photo or video instructions.  I like using a straw to store necklaces while traveling, the video on how to fold sheets, and dropping a couple drops of essential oil inside the toilet paper roll (would be most useful in a guest bathroom, I think.)

On the selfishness of homeschooling: Myth busting  {Hobo Mama}
I’m not advocating home schooling, but enjoyed reading this, and I try to understand points of view that weren’t traditional to my upbringing.

Exploring the Great Artists– 20+ Art Books For Kids  {Red Ted Art’s Blog}
Book recommendations and an interview with MaryAnn Kohl (plus giveaway!)

Alphabet Peg Dolls — Alphabet For Starters  {No Time For Flashcards}
I like the idea of these, but not necessarily the idea of making them…

30 Books About Being Different  {No Time For Flashcards}
I have to add William’s Doll by Charlotte Zolotow to the list.

Happy Earth Day!
