Real Leprechaun Gold!

Lately I've seen the image floating around of the Wilton gold spray that is edible. Have you seen it? It looks a little like this:


It's an image that pops up on Facebook and on Pinterest... BUT I have yet to see anyone do it or hear feedback. So I am here to try it out for you! 

I bought one can and a container of Oreos. I plan on my Leprechaun bringing enough for my class to have 1 each as a treat. Our little green man leaves treats outside his door. You can see more about the door I use over at Simply Kinder.

To make my Oreos, I laid out a sheet of wax paper and laid my Oreos out in one layer. This way I could spray one side and then the other side.




After covering one side in the spray, I let them dry and flipped them over and sprayed the other side. I did notice that the spray dried faster on food than on the wax paper so I moved them to a new sheet of wax paper for the coat on the other side.




Super simple and sweet!
 Plus, how fun would this be to make pirate treasure! I'm thinking next year that I need to make pirate treasure for my addition unit when I use Harry Kindergarten's Add (or Subtract) Like A Pirate video.

What I Want to Wear Wednesday

We all love Pinterest for it's gathering of many amazing ideas, right? Well, I have an addiction with Pinterest.... I keep adding more boards! Seriously, I have over 100 boards. I have broken it down by holidays, seasons, things for home, things for school, etc. I can only imagine that they work a little like my brain does: scattered!

One of my favorite boards though is my Teacher's Clothes board. I started this a few months ago because I needed a place to put just work attire ideas. I am loving what I've been seeing out on Pinterest lately so I'm also excited to bring back:


Each week I will show you my favorites so you can find some new inspiration too! As teachers, our budgets are huge for clothes so finding new ways to wear things is the best. Plus I am by no means a fashion diva.. but I can spot a cute outfit idea on Pinterest for sure!

Here are my top 5 inspirations for this week! Click any to be taken to the original post on Pinterest to save the idea to your own Pinterest board!


This is my favorite this week because I love this top and the pointed toe flats.

Love this look and it's one that I have come close to replicating in my own wardrobe! If you click through to the actual post, it's a teacher blog that shows ONLY clothes. Love it!


I have an obsession with sweaters over button-ups. No lie. I am a prep at heart! But seriously, how is this not cute? Trade out the jeans for navy blue or khaki pants and it's totally work appropriate!


I have a secret... I want to wear more skirts! They are cute! But I'm working on losing a little bit of weight so that they look cute on me too ;) I love this match up and am totally looking for a good deal on a pair of leopard flats. I've seen them with SO many outfits this past month!


Look closely... these are.not.jeans. I repeat-not.jeans. In my world, at my school, these are called trousers. They look like denim but they are not. The definite of jeans means that they must have those cute little metal rivets. No rivets here ;) Plus those flats? I have rounded ones with my Tieks and I have a similar sweater. Comfy. Classy. Cozy. Teacher perfect!


Leave a link in the comments to share your favorite new outfit! I'd love to see and add it to next week's blog post!

Working It Out Teacher Style

The past few months I have been working on getting my Specialist degree... which means lots of sitting and reading. Which is why back in the summer I had the idea to start a Fitness for Teachers group. And this was born:


Click the photo to go to Facebook and join the group. I know that this is the time of the year when everyone begins to think about how they are going to get fit after the holidays. But it's hard when you are a teacher. Just think about the schedule, the energy we put out during the day, the after school activities, parenting on top of it, or second jobs, or....The list goes on and on.

This is a group full of people who get it. Too good to be true? Just wait for it-- no advertising. That's right. All the sellers of many, many different types of weight loss stuff will not and can not advertise to you. We mean it. We remove them if they do.

I hope you come by and join! Plus, here on Wednesdays I'll be sharing some great ideas about 'Working It Out Teacher Style' with food, recipes, and working out.

New Years Countdown

While I'm on vacation for a few more days, I've been looking at my plans for when I go back with my students on this Thursday. I'm excited about the different plans that I've been saving up on Pinterest.

I have several items in my store already that you can take a peek at. Others I have found around the internet. But I think the VERY best idea that I have seen is for a countdown to noon.

But wait for it....

I can not wait to do this with my kids on Thursday. What makes it even better is that now Netflix has added to it with these great countdowns for you to use! They were first meant to use to put your kids to bed earlier than midnight... but I'm definitely using them in my classroom!


Several of these are definite favorites for my class!

I'm also going to add in creating time capsules with my students, celebrating with juice and pop corn, graphing who stayed up, and making resolutions. It'll be a FULL 2 days at the end of the week. Here are some of the great ideas that I'm using:



(resolutions.writing paper. goal setting flip book)

(graphing activity)

(journal or writing paper)

I am definitely enjoying my break but I'm looking forward to seeing my babies on Thursday!!
