Dr. Seuss week starts March 2nd.

Like most kids, mine love this time of year, there is no one quite like Dr.Seuss.

Looking for a creative way to teach and display the  Periodic Table of Elements?

New Year's Goals Printable

Egg Carton Christmas Basket Ornament

 on November 30, 2014

I'm one of those moms who hoards egg cartons for....well, just in case.  You know...the case that doesn't happen very often.  So, that is why, this Christmas, I was outright determined to create a fun ornament using egg cartons.  (And maybe the other reason I decided to make egg carton ornaments is so that my husband wouldn't ask me anymore if I just like to look at our egg carton stock pile.)

Topology Mathematical Tree Ornament

Want to tie in some Mathematics with your DIY Christmas decorations?  These are so fun, so simple, and quite honestly, so addicting to create.  Give your students or children a stack of 5" X 5" pieces of paper, and have them cut to their heart's content.  Try to find either foil origami paper, velvet sheets of scrapbook paper, or even construction paper to make these fun and educational ornaments.
