UberSmart Math Facts Review

UberSmart Math Facts Review by Crystal's Tiny Treasures

Math is an integral part of everyday life.  I can’t imagine how difficult it must be to go through life without knowing at least basic math.  I can survive without speaking the local language, but not without math!

Recycled Styrofoam Bracelet For Kids by Crystal's Tiny Treasures

What could be done with styrofoam cups?  I’ve been trying to learn to crochet and had a little yarn left over so we put the two together and have made a styrofoam cup bracelet for Kallista.

Pick A Pocket of Prairie

Pick A Pocket Of Prairie

Saskatchewan Day was celebrated earlier this month.  I’m from the Saskatchewan prairies and my children, although born in the Northern Ireland hills, also consider themselves to be from the prairies and like to learn about the area Mommy grew up in and where their Nana and papa live.

40+ Home Organisation Ideas

I have been so embarrassed this past week.  We’re doing a little moving around of furniture; putting a dresser in the kids’ room and moving their wardrobe into their closet to use it for the shelving.  Of course, in my grand way of doing things, I’ve moved everything from their room, their wardrobe, closet, dresser, […]
