Kinetic Sand – This Stuff is Addicting

Screen Shot 2014-05-28 at 12.14.32 PM

A big hit in our house recently is Kinetic Sand from Brookstone.  However they make it, it reminds me of a cross between beach sand and play doh.  The nice part is that it's not a huge mess like normal sand would be - it sticks together, but it still feels like sand and it molds like it would on the beach.  It never dries out and it has some … [Read more...]

My memory of 6th grade and the time I discovered D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths is so distinct to me.  I loved that book.  I read it cover to cover several times, earmarking favorite myths of mine.  I swore that someday I would study mythology, which probably seemed funny at the time but was no longer funny I declared Mythology to be my minor in … [Read more...]
