Handmade Trendy T-Shirts!

Don't we all love it when we can create something so simple, yet beautiful. What is a better way to have it posted on your blog and share it with my readers. I feel that it has been quite along time since I have made something creative with the little one. So, it is about time to start. It is always nice to get the entire family involved in fun activities.  Daddy came up with this crafty idea. Alright, lets get started.   
White Blank T-Shirts
Favorite Character Printables (or whatever you have at hand)
Fabric Mate  (Non-Toxic Super Fine Markers)

As always I had to run a few errands and of course the little one and the hubby came along.  I decided to drop in at Jo-Ann. yep, love them LOL. So, hubby and the little one love to stroll through the different sections and he found the Fabric Mate Markers. We end up getting two packages, and that is when the idea came about to make our own crafty T-shirts. Find a nice area to work at and have everything in order. Since, I am making these shirts for the little one, I asked her what she wanted and she wanted a bunny rabbit character. All you have to do is browse on the internet and use google search engine or yahoo which ever you prefer to find a ton of printables. How cool is the internet?
Make sure you have a table cloth on your work table to prevent any mess.  Now, place the printable underneath your shirt and trace the printable. Once you have completed the outline, your little one is ready to color all the blank spaces. Tell them to use as many colors as they like. This will make it so much brighter and will definitely stand out. Encourage them on. I was telling Sophia, she was a world famous fashion designer. When you are finished, set aside to dry. Once it is done, guess what, you are now ready to put your Trendy T-shirt on. Yep, you have made your own design and guess what your little one will look absolutely gorgeous in it and be proud of their own creation. Simple as that! Now, what are you waiting for, get busy and make one!

Hooked on Phonics Master Reader Deluxe Edition Giveaway-CLOSED

School is in session and we are all back to our regular schedules.  If your a mommy who is into homeschooling your little ones or just parents always looking for educational products that will enhance your children to read and learn better; then this program would definitely be for you. I had the pleasure of working with Hooked on Phonics in the past on their Learn to Read Pre-K program.  It was a wonderful experience teaching my little one the program and we are still following the program. I was given another opportunity to work with them again, which I truly appreciate. This time, I want to introduce to my readers the Hooked on Phonics Master Reader Deluxe Edition.  
Let me tell you a little bit more about the Master Reader Deluxe Edition program: This program is designed for children who have mastered basic reading skills, but still need some encouragement to read appropriately, accurately and definitely with confidence. Here are a few steps on what your child will learn:
  • Learn advanced phonics skills with engaging lessons on the computer.
  • Practice new skills with fun, interactive computer games.
  • Build a bridge from basic reading skills to fluency.
  • Read amazing stories and exciting chapter books for independent reading.
  • Read out loud allowing children to showcase their new reading skills
This is what is included in the Master Readers Deluxe Edition program:
4 chapter books
4 easels
64 story cards
1 progress poster to track learning success
1 set of fun stickers kids love
1 Parent's guide
After you have used this program your child will be able to master the following steps:
Blue Level - Your child learns how to break down and sound out compound words.
Green Level - Your child's reading skills progress to include two-syllable and three-syllable words with long vowel sounds like apple and candle, as well as words with similar patterns like nation and discussion.
Orange Level – Your child focuses on tricky vowels in words such as meter and metal, and even and ever, before moving on to vowel teams, as in mermaid and today.
Red Level – Your child learns more difficult vowel pairs, as in coward, turquoise, and video. By the last lesson they’ll have the skills to read five-syllable words such as possibility and congratulations.
