[Playtime] Spot it Game [Age 3+]

I bought this game a few weeks ago. It is an easy-to-learning and fun game for the young ones. In each box, there are 55 cards. There are 8 symbols on each card. Between any two cards, there is always one and only one matching symbol. There are 5 or 6 different ways to play the game, but the most important thing is always to spot the matching symbols fast and you will win. Kids as young as 3-4…

[Foodie] Shaped Eggs in Toast

Rather than serve eggs on toast, you can show your love with eggs served inside a toast. Use a 3-inch cookie cutter (heart, flower, bunny, star, etc.) to remove a shape out of the center of a thick slice of bread. Melt 1.5 teaspoons of butter in a small skillet. Place bread in the skillet and cook until underside is slightly browned. Add another 1.5 teaspoons of butter and flip the bread. Coat the cookie cutter with cooking spray and fit the cutter in bread's cut-out…

十几年前来美的时候,背了一大卷婚纱照的专用冷膜,想着自己做相册。就是这份闲心

,作出了育儿上的大文章。



老大四五岁起,想着可以学中文了。不想教太多遍,就用浅色彩笔自己想着写了几个简

单字,再在字上标出笔顺和方向,压上冷膜。"娃,闲着也是闲着,你就天天写吧。"

反正,用washable的笔写了,擦了明儿接着写!



教着写着,娃还真记住了。我开始有点认真地给他备了五十来个字,一张A4纸上排六个

大字,都压上膜,写吧。



就这样,老大中文上路了,后面,我就交给《汉字宫》了。我家娃听说没问题,每天早

饭(反正吃的慢)电脑上看两集(五分钟一集),就跟我们当年被动听评书和被动看《…
