I took these recipes from the book, Gifts in a Jar for Kids. The book has recipes and then little gift tags you can use for the gift jars. Not only is it fun to fill the jars with goodies, but you can also have a lot of fun decorating the jars too! If you have some extra fabric laying about, just cut 9" diameter circles and then use ribbon, raffia, yarn, or whatnot to hold it in place.
The recipes from the book are good for up to 6 months, but they never last that long in our house. You could take advantage of the "extra" time you and the kids have during the summer and make a few gifts ahead of time for the holidays!!
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup salt
2 T cream of tartar
2 pkgs of Kool-aid (leave in packaging)
Layer the ingredients in the order given into a 1 Quart wide-mouth canning jar. Pack each layer in place before adding the next ingredient. Attach a gift tag with the mixing directions.
1 jar Play dough Mix
2 Cups water
2 T. baby oil
Remove Kool-Aid packages from jar. Mix water, baby oil and Kool-Aid together in a large microwave safe container. Add Play dough Mix and stir until its well blended. Microwave on high for a total of approximately 4 -5 minutes, stopping every 30 to 45 seconds to stir. Continue to microwave and stir until a ball forms. After the play dough is cool enough to touch, you are ready to play!
Another fun recipe for the summer is their Sand Art Cookie Mix. You can have a lot of fun decorating this jar with some raffia and shells you gathered from any beach trips you took over the summer :-)
1/2 Cup sugar
1/2 Cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 Cup M & M's
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 1/4 Cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 Cup crisp rice cereal
1/2 Cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Layer the ingredients in the order given into a wide-mouth 1 quart canning jar. Pack each layer in place before adding the next ingredient. Attach a gift tag with the mixing and baking directions.
Mixing and Baking Directions:
(makes 1 1/2 to 2 dozen)
1 jar Sand Art cookie Mix
1/2 Cup butter or margarine, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, cream the butter and egg. Add the Sand Art Cookie Mix. Stir until the mixture is well blended. Form dough into 1-inch balls and place 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool.
You can find this book, Gifts in a Jar For Kids, at Amazon for just $9.00.
Have fun :-)
Thanks My DFW Mommy!
Emily of Terracycle shared a really cool upcycling DIY which Kara of Ramblings of a Marine Wife did a post on you can do with your kidlets. Here is Kara's idea on how to take some of your own trash to make a wallet:
1 clean, empty food package (at least 7 inches by 5 1/2 inches in size)
1 pair of scissors
1 self-adhesive Velcro fastener
1. Cut a rectangle that is 7 inches by 5 1/2 inches in the package. Centered inside the rectangle, draw a smaller rectangle that is 4 inches by 2 1/2 inches. This smaller rectangle will be 1 1/2 inches from each edge.
2. From the top edge of the smaller rectangle, draw a semicircle that intersects with the top of the large rectangle and the corners of the small rectangle. Repeat for the other three sides. Cut around these lines.
3. Fold in all four semicircles so your cut piece folds up to the size of the small rectangle. Tape the bottom flap and two side flaps in place.
4. Attach one side of the Velcro fastener on the inside of the top flap. Fold down the flap so the other side of the Velcro attaches to the outside of the bottom flap.

My good friend Jennifer of Syllables Reading Center told me about a must have book called Straight Talk About Reading by Susan L. Hall and Louisa C. Moats several years ago. I have it thoroughly highlighted, paper clipped, and side-noted. The book is full of ideas of ways parents can make a difference during the early years.
The authors recommend several books to help your soon to be kindergartner with their reading skills.
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs by Judith Barrett
Make Way for the Ducklings by Robert McCloskey
Doctor DeSoto by William Steig
Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Suess
Curious George by H.A. Rey
The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Suess
The Legend of the Indian Paintbrush by Tomie dePaula
Babushkas's Doll by Patricia Polacco
Goodnight Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann
Mirette on the High Wire by Emily Arnold McCully
Straight Talk About Reading has been, by far, one of the most helpful books I have ever read. It helped me to be the teacher, the mentor, and the advocate I need to be. I am not an educator, but the book breaks things down, keeps it simple and straightforward, defining terms you will need to know like digraph, phoneme, and phonological awareness.
You can also check out the Codebreaker Camps at Syllables Reading Center for your Rising First and Second graders.
