Fabric Bead Necklace Kids Craft

Making Fabric Beads by Kids #craft

Crafting is becoming a big passion for Shae. I’m not talking about cutting out construction paper and gluing it to each other to make odd shapes. I’m talking about thought out creations that have a purpose. These fabric beads happened after seeing my trunk full of fabric and other random stuff. She wanted to make […]

Watermelon Lemonade made by kids #kidsinthekitchen

Watermelon Lemonade made by kids #kidsinthekitchen #cookingwithkids

After our tropical vacation last week Shae came home craving refreshing and exotic drinks with umbrellas and whipped cream. We compromised with this Watermelon Lemonade Drink Recipe because it was easy to create and we had all the ingredients on hand. Easy might for us might not be for you. The hardest part of the […]

Goop A Lesson in Quicksand #StreamTeam

Goop A Lesson in Quicksand #StreamTeam

While showing Shae The Princess Bride for the first time this week, the three of us (kids) got into a discussion about what quicksand is and how it works after watching the scene when Buttercup sinks into the lightning sand. With the Netflix theme for this month being all about staying engaged during the summer, Shae […]

The Graduate on her Big Day #family #graduation

You may remember several weeks back, Sabreena graduated High School. It was a big deal. She’s not only our first to graduate but the first grandchild and niece. Her graduation was attended by my parents and my sister and of course our family. We started with dinner and then went to the actual ceremony that was […]

Frozen Banana Pops #kidsinthekitchen #recipe, cooking with kids

You know I’m always on the hunt for new snacks and treats for the kids. Lately they seem to be asking for ice cream all the time. Our pool snackbar has ice cream so it happens more often that it’s becoming an afternoon snack versus a once in a while treat. I wanted to find […]

Cinnamon Apple Crisp #recipe #kidsinthekitchen

Kids in the Kitchen making Cinnamon Apple Crisp #kidsinthekitchen

I love having a helper in the kitchen. Especially one that can read, measure (for the most part) and mix without getting most of the ingredients on the counter. Shae is gonna be one hell of cook and baker when she grows up because she’s always wanting to make something.  This week’s Cinnamon Apple Crisp […]

Smack ‘N’ Cheese Pizza #recipe Revolutionary Pizza #giveaway

Smack and Cheese Pizza by Revolutionary Pizza

For the last 7 years Friday night has been Pizza & Movie Night in the Babiak Household. It started with ordering pizza to buying dough from a local pizzeria to then making dough from scratch. We’ve had many variations of pizza with many different ingredients. My favorite is on the grill with a simple sauce, […]

Mango Strawberry Smoothie #kidsinthekitchen

Mango Strawberry Smoothie #kidsinthekitchen

Breakfast during the summer comes later and later each day. The kids are sleeping in later or not eager to come out of their caves into the sunlight until they feel their bellies growl in protest. This week was full of lazy mornings so smoothies were a quick and easy breakfast that pleased everyone, even […]

Making Eggs in a Hole Breakfast #kidsinthekitchen


Breakfast seems to be the most quiet part of the day lately. The kids are waking up groggy and zombielike. This comes from a day of play in the sun and pool. I obviously want to start them off with a good breakfast. Shae asks for eggs and toast all the time. At age 6 […]
