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?

Cute and Easy Ideas for Teachers Appreciation Week!

I have three little ones and having to figure out what to get for all their teachers can become not only time consuming, but also a little heavy on the pockets. 

I took some time to scour Pinterest as most of us love to do and I thought these ideas were super cute and easy enough for anyone to try!

(The detailed instructions for the super cute and easy ideas below can be found on No Biggie; It’s Always Autumn

Nothing says lovin than some home-made goodness!

Teachers can never have enough hand/ antibacterial soaps–take it from me I’m constantly washing my hands!

Who doesn’t like to pamper themselves? 

A calming scent sure will help your teacher with much need R&R!

For the teacher who loves to plant and/or garden!

A teacher takes a hand, opens a mind and touches a heart!

A Healthy & Super Easy Recipe (Caprese Flatbread)

Some nights I am on the go and have to get something on the table faster than I have the time for but it certainly helps when I can not only fix something super quick but on top of it–be super healthy too! 

Caprese Flatbread with basil pesto, tomatoes, mozzarella, topped with arugula and balsamic glaze.  

I found this delicious and healthy option of pre-made flatbread. Just pop in the oven for two minutes at 375 degrees before adding the toppings. 

After heating the flatbread for two minutes it’s time to add the toppings. I liberally spread the cheese. (Next time I will grab fresh mozzarella but in my haste I grabbed the quickest option) Add the basil pesto and tomatoes which I cut in half; Drizzle the balsamic glaze. Put in the oven for about 5 mins or until cheese melts. 

The final step: Add the arugula and serve!

Super easy, Super delicious and Super healthy! The kids loved it and I loved it because they are still getting their veggies in.
