Happy Trail Mix Day! This week the ladies of Friday Frivolity are sharing their favorite trail mix recipes with you to celebrate. Here are some of my favorite things to include in a trail mix.
August 24 is Vesuvius Day. It marks the anniversary of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD that destroyed Pompeii. This makes it an excellent day to talk to our children about volcanoes and how they work. My daughter is a few months shy of two years old so there isn’t much explaining I can do that she would understand. I decided to make a volcano in a bowl to show her how cool science can be.
Baking soda and vinegar
Large bowl and plastic cup
Food coloring or washable paints
Place the plastic cup right side up in the bowl. Add a few tablespoons of baking soda to the cup. Now is the time to add your coloring if you’d like. When your ready for an eruption pour in a little vinegar and enjoy the foam-splotion.
The bowl makes clean up so much easier but this can also be done on a tray lined with newspaper or outside.
You can use food coloring to double the science fun and teach toddlers how colors mix.
If you’d like a more traditional volcano shape then cut the bottom of the cup off and use aluminum foil over the top to keep the baking soda in.
Have you ever made a volcano?

You might consider kitchen room as the hub of your house, but it is not the “most excellent” place for doing school works. Household activities and their noise might distract your child who is trying to master math arithmetic, and moreover, the sound of the TV may provoke teenagers to dash off their grammar test preparation.
A separate room designated for study and homework gives a tranquil space where kids can accomplish their school activities without being interrupted. With elegant and stylish design choices, this room can become a pleasant retreat for growing scholars — and possibly their preferred place in the home. Continue reading

Breastfeeding is an absolute joy for me. I love the bond that I have with my daughter and I am proud that I’m giving her just what she needs to be healthy. As I approach year two of breastfeeding, I’ve noticed new breastfeeding struggles than what I was faced with in the early days. Toddlers just don’t sit still. They’re fidgety little things that need their hands occupied with something at all times. That’s why I was so pleased to try Boobie Beads, a teething necklace with double duty that keeps my daughter focused while nursing. I was given a necklace to try in exchange for sharing how I liked it.
