Exogeology ROCKS!

The biggest part of unschooling that those who don’t know unschoolers seem to not grasp right away is the intensity of kids to have a passion. When researching my children’s educational choices over ten years ago (they are currently 13.5 and 9.5), I kept reading about these amazing people who were doing amazing things. 9 […]

How to Make: Fun (Quick and Easy) T-shirt for Dad — using a Bleach Pen

Trying to come up with Father’s Day crafts for my Girl Scout troop this year was quite a challenge!  We’ve been making crafty things together for nearly eight years and it seems like we’ve made everything there is to be made.  Then, I thought, it’s been a LOOOONG time since we’ve decorated t-shirts…  To do […]

This tiled black & white photograph project is a perfect gift for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or just any time you want to give a truly unique (yet inexpensive) present to someone you love. Total time to make one: about 90 minutes, longer if it is your first one (less if you are doing a […]

Ask — The Answer Might Be YES!

If you want something in life, ask for it.  If you don’t ask, you’ll never get it.  If you do ask, the worst that can happen is that you’ll be turned down — no big deal!  Move on to the next thing you really want. What’s holding you back? Look inside yourself for the answers […]

REVIEW: Star Trek: The Exhibition

My family recently had the pleasure of going to Star Trek: The Exhibition at the Arizona Science Center in Phoenix.  This awesome traveling exhibit was fun for us since we’re all big Star Trek fans, although the promised shuttle simulation ride didn’t exist.  The website made it clear that photographs and cell phones were not […]

Teagan’s Flower Fun (handmade board game)

For a recent Girl Scout meeting, one of the older girls planned a super cool activity for the younger girls:  They each got to make their own board game!  Coming up with the rules, name of the game, and goal for the game was really fun for my daughter. Click here for “How to: Make […]

How to: Make Your Own Board Game

Come up with an idea: What are your interests?  Love flowers, animals, movies, baseball?  Choose whatever your fancy is and that can be the theme for your board game.  Combine ideas if it would make for a fun game. Make the board: This can be the really fun part.  The board itself can be made […]

“You’re not here to SOCIALIZE!”

One of the biggest arguments against homeschooling is: “But, what about socialization?” How ironic!  It’s in school where we are the most frequently told to stop socializing…  Who here hasn’t been told, “You’re not here to SOCIALIZE!” My kids love going out and about.  They both have regular social activities without each other and in […]

RECIPE: Vegan Cream Cheese Wedding Mints

Our Girl Scout troop recently had a Talent Show.  My oldest daughter’s talent was cooking.  Since each act could only be 5 minutes (or less) long, she had a difficult time deciding what to cook.  She finally decided on wedding mints (which could be shown in stages).  They are relatively simple to make, easy to […]

How to: Make a Photo Collage Clock

My kids love making letters and numbers with their bodies.  To use their number photographs in an extra fun way, we decided to make collage clocks using 12″ blank clock faces from  The parts are great and the directions are fantastic — full of lots of neat ideas! Here is how we made ours: […]
