Magic Spoonfuls

Make a Rock Poetry Kit
Whether you want to make one for yourself, unlock the Sylvia Plath lurking in your teenager, or put your kids in a genuinely funky Back to School mood, just be warned: ROCK POETRY IS ABSOLUTELY ADDICTIVE!!
A Picnic blanket is…
Do your kids ever go into Paradise Paralysis? Like mine this morning! It’s a perfect summer day with dozens of options all around. Yet some inexplicable malaise of grumpy-bumpy inertia takes hold right at breakfast time.
Gigi’s Fun Reward Chart Boardgame!!
I love the way this communal game models teamwork, adaptability and problem solving. We modified our game as we went, really making it our own through trial, error, and consensus. Not only was it wildly successful in guiding their behaviour, but what a valuable experience in group project development!
Build a Terrarium Birthday Party!
Looking for a unique, homegrown birthday party idea that's full of life and greenery and foraging and hands-on messy fun? Beautiful, and so fun to build, terrariums are the perfect take-home party favour, and the snack ideas are endlessly creative too!
Taking Spring Hostage
Oh, the roundabout ways of children, mice, pigs, and me. If you give a mouse a cookie. Or a moose a muffin. One thing leads to another....If you give Gigi a Kijiji she will end up with....a pretty sweet batch of plants and animals!
