Look what I am making for Master O and baby sister this weekend.
Lego Jello, fun colorful, tasty, jiggly, wiggly, yet best of all, an easy peasy treat.
Watching baby sister squish it through her little fingers should put smiles on all of our faces, right Betsy? (and a mess on the floor no doubt)
Since we have been playing matching games lately, the plan is to match the Jello boxes with his Duplos.
Have the Lego/Duplo blocks washed and ready to go. Choose your favorite flavor Jellos, or in our case, favorite colors. Master O will be matching the colors of red, blue, green and yellow; aka: cherry, blueberry, lime and lemon in Jello speak.
Prepare the Jello as directed on the package. This time, before filling the Duplo molds I am going to first spray them with Pam cooking spray. Hopefully the un-molding will be a snap. Place the molds in a cake pan before filing and then place the pan in the refrigerator until set.
There’s always room for Lego Jello, this week’s Recipe For Fun..

Remember to SPRING AHEAD!
Are you familiar with the expression “ask him what time it is and he’ll tell you how to build the clock?” We’ll mention no names here, Dave.
Tick tock you really can build your own clock. Here is an educational clock project for the entire family.
Tomorrow, Sunday, March 10th, we need to set our clocks ahead one hour marking the beginning of Daylight Saving Time (DST) at 2A.M.
You can also use this as an ideal opportunity for teaching time.
The ability to tell time is a significant milestone in a child’s educational development and does not have to be a difficult nor frustrating experience. Choosing the right educational time teaching tools can lessen the stress. Fun time teaching toys can also help motivate little ones learning how to tell time.
“Block around the clock! “Here is a nice clock for 3 year olds or older combining both shape sorting and time learning.
It really is a good time all around to learn something new.
Tempus Fugit, hurry up and make a clock cupcake.
An old favorite is making your own paper plate clock.
A picture is worth a thousand words in creating this Eggs-tra Special Easter Egg Bunny. The pictorial inspires and offers instructions for a surprising easy Recipe for Fun. We are having a practice run this weekend. Cute – cute!
Even though we are still ice and snow covered here in Minnesota, some of us are hoping that tomorrow Punxsutawney Phil will be bringing news and hope of an early spring.
Lettuce entertain you with this clever edible hanging basket idea that we are anxious to get started.
My Hanging Baskets has the 411:
Line the basket with moist sphagnum moss or a preformed Angel Moss liner.
Fill the basket with a light potting soil. Place leaf lettuce transplants about 4 inches apart in holes throughout the basket. Push the root ball through the moss into the moist potting soil. Be sure to place several transplants in the top of the basket, too!
Place the basket where it will get almost full sun. As the lettuce starts to grow, you will have an almost-perfectly round basket that is as pretty as an ivy or fern and a whole lot tastier.
My Hanging Baskets suggests that can choose to alternate a green-leaf lettuce, like Black Seeded Simpson, with a red-leaf lettuce, like Red Sails, in your basket, or make a basket of each. Be sure to pop over to their website to see all of the other fantastic ideas for hanging baskets.
This Gingerbread Man game is not only fun but educational at the same time. Just have the kiddos roll the die and mark the number on their recording sheet with a bingo dot marker. This activity is available in the Gingerbread Math Packet located in the printables section at pre-kpages.
We always like to have Gingerbread Man cookies to nibble (dismember) on as we play the fast moving game.
A not too spicy recipe for the Gingerbread Man is available at Homemade Mamas.
