Preschooler Learning in the Kitchen

Our almost 3 year old was up earlier than her two older sisters this morning…so she and I decided to make breakfast together. A little one-on-one time with just mommy  and some added fun with learning, that mommy totally snuck in! 

Who says making pancakes can’t get a preschooler’s mind going?! 

She got introduced to measurements, a review in shapes/colors and there’s lots of fine motor being used! 

What are some fun ways you are keeping your preschooler’s mind busy this summer?

This is so true for Daniel and I, especially as we approach our 2 year mark of stepping out of the boat–our comfort zone! God has seen us through SO much in the past 2 years and we stand so much stronger in Him! We both can attest to “He never leaves you and never forsakes you.” There is always a Bigger Plan–trust Him!

Healthy & Awesome Chicken Breast Skewers Recipe


Makes 4 servings

Per serving

1 Leaner protein 3 condiments 1 fat

1. 36oz raw chicken breasts, boneless and skinless

2. ¼ cup lemon or lime juice

3. 4 tsp olive oil

4. Seasonings:

1. 2 cloves garlic, crushed

2. ¼ tsp Salt

3. ¼ tsp Black

¼ tsp Red Pepper

4. 2 tsp cumin seed or 1 tsp ground cumin

Mix the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and all the spices together in a bowl

Put the cut chicken breast in your awesome marinade, cover with lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours.

If you want to prevent the skewers from burning, soak them in water for at least 40 minutes beforehand. Then, lay out everything you need: grill-pan set-up, skewers, some torn paper towels for surprise mess-ups. And last before you begin, preheat the gas grill or oven broiler to HI

Cooking at high heat turns it crispy and locks the juices inside. This also shortens cooking time significantly, so keep a close eye to avoid turning your delicious dinner to charcoal. We recommend broiling, grilling or very high heat baking.

Broil on HI for a few minutes per side, checking frequently. As each side develops a crisp, you will turn the meat slightly. Basically, you are using your oven broiler as you would a barbecue. This shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes total.

“I Will Be With You”

Whatever you may be going through today, the Lord promises to never leave you nor forsake you! He is closer than your own brothe/sister, just trust in Him and He will direct your very path! Be encouraged today as you head into a new week!
