It's super-easy. Have your kid draw a picture of a snow scene (you can't tell from the photo, but Little Boy drew a snowman with a bunch of snowflakes falling around it). Then go over the lines with a glue stick and dab a cotton ball over the glue-sticked areas. Bits of cotton from the cotton ball will stick to the picture.

So, for example, he stuck the "bake" card to the oven. And the "brain" card to his head.
But what really got me was what he stuck the "great" card to:
Yup...good ol' Lightning McQueen.

"What you sincerely in your heart think of Christ will determine what you are, will largely determine what your acts will be. No person can study this divine personality, can accept his teachings without becoming conscious of an uplifting and refining influence within himself."

Little Boy loves to count and loves to line things up. And isn't that pretty much what dominoes are all about? Yep, turns out that Little Boy also loves dominoes.
The dominoes box says that it's for age 8+. I guess that's for really playing the game--strategizing and all that. Little Boy's pretty far away from there. But it's a great game for a four-year-old to work on counting, matching, and...
...lining things up. Heh.

“How do we become self-reliant? We become self-reliant through obtaining sufficient knowledge, education, and literacy; by managing money and resources wisely, being spiritually strong, preparing for emergencies and eventualities; and by having physical health and social and emotional well-being.”

I wouldn't buy a used book, even if it costs a few cents, if I didn't think we'd read it. Most of the books there fall under that category.
But once in awhile, when I look really carefully, I'll find something that I MUST HAVE ON MY SHELF.
Like these, for example. I've also picked up Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (yeah, it's the British edition), James and the Giant Peach, and The Indian in the Cupboard. For 25 cents each!
These are books that, of course, Little Boy is too young to read. But Isaac and I will read them now, and when Little Boy's old enough, I want to have some good books around that he can dig into. I think we're off to a good start.
