Mother's Day Cootie Catcher

Raise your hand if you have made a cootie catcher when you were a kid. Well, I have! 🙋. They go by multiple names like a paper fortune teller or chatterbox and a couple more.

If you don't know, a cootie catcher is a form of origami paper folding game. Parts of the cootie catcher are labelled with colors or numbers for players to choose from and the inside has a message or action item for the players. Based on the number or color the player chooses, the cootie catcher needs to be adjusted.

If you're looking for a fun preschool activity for mother's day, this cootie catcher is just a perfect mothers day ideas for kids.

What I love about this activity is that kids can spell each word out loud as they open and close the cootie catch. so LOVE would mean open and close 4 times. Also, older kids can spell the color out too. There are some really sweet activities that kids can do for their mothers as they play the game.

Isn't it a wonderful way to wish Happy Mother's Day?

Hop, hop, hop, goes the Kangaroo. Who doesn’t get wowed by their inimitable style of motion, box-fighting and the cute kid living in the mother’s pouch? Kids love Kangaroos!

A young Kangaroo is called Joey and when they are born, they are just the size of a peanut with no eyes & limbs! They live in their mother’s pouch drinking her milk as they develop their body and come out when they are a little older.

A Kangaroo mother is a doting one and takes care of as many of three multiple young ones at the same time.

Busting the Tooth Fairy Myth, or Not?

The 'Tooth Fairy' pang

As my 6-year old brushed his teeth this morning, I stared into the hole in the middle and asked, “Why have your teeth been missing for so long?” He smiled his foamy mouth and quipped, “The tooth fairy just took them, you know!” Um.. as if someone was supposed to bring them back as well.

There was a slight pang of guilt in me as I had previously fed into the myth of the ‘Tooth Fairy’. Not that it is a dangerous thing; just a bit of lie! And it needs being fed with more ridiculous lies to quench the curiosity of little minds.
