Sometimes as I go through my days, I come across things or think of things that I put to the back of my mind and think, I should share that on the blog! My readers should hear about that! But, then, if it is something little, I never get around to letting you know about it and I feel bad later that you missed out on a good deal or a good idea. So, today I have decided to let you know about a few things that are currently good deals or good ideas that I have heard about and also give you a few updates about what is going on around here!
Brownie Points-If you have followed me long, you know that I am currently the Primary Children's Singing Time Instructor at our church. Each year, we prepare for a program that we present to the rest of the congregation in the Fall. There are a number of songs that we work on throughout the year. Last year, as an incentive to get my children to really sing whole- heartedly, I made a Brownie Points Chart. It was a chart with a list of all of the songs that we were working on for the program. As we sang them each week, I would add a Brownie Point when they did a great job. I told them that if they could get Brownie points to fill the line all across the page by the time we sang, (including during the program) I would reward them with a buffet of brownies.
My kids sang so well! Of course I knew that they would, so I came prepared with 4 different kinds of brownies, (including gluten free), napkins and zip lock bags for them to carry their brownies home. They loved it! The brownies were easy to do since they were made in sheet pans, so it really was a great way to motivate the kids throughout the year. (I introduced the Brownie Point Chart with a sample brownie earlier in the year.)
