Native American Crafts Unit - TeachersFirst: How to Make Corn Husk Dolls

Native American Crafts Unit - TeachersFirst: How to Make Corn Husk Dolls





---



My eight year old and I are thinking about trying out hand at making a corn husk doll. I bought some yummy white corn from Aldi's this past week and we hope to make a lovely doll. I have been searching several sites online for a craft pattern. There are several good ones at the Almanac and Oneida Crafts, too.



PDF file for Cornhusk Doll

Our corn husks dried but were too short to work with so we will wait until we can purchase or find longer husks maybe in the fall.

Thank you,

Recipe: Egg in a Basket

Recipe: Egg in a Basket

Egg in a Basket Recipe

Egg in a Basket is a very simple recipe that would be great to teach your child or grandchild. It is interesting to know that it has many names like Bird's Nest Egg, Gashouse Eggs, Toad in a Hole, and Egg in a Hole.

Ingredients:

  • Bread - Wheat or White
  • Butter - melted
  • Whole Large Egg
  • Cinnamon Sugar 
  • Opt. Syrup 


Instructions:
Cut a hole in the center your bread using a cookie cutter, small cup or glass. Melt a small pat of butter in a non-stick skillet on medium-high heat. Do not allow it to over heat or smoke. Lay the piece of bread into the skillet, gently crack open one egg and drop it into the hole you just made in the bread. If you want your egg completely cooked you simply poke the egg to break the yolk or allow it to remain hole. Use a non-stick spatula to turn it. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar, powered sugar or pancake/maple syrup to make your recipe complete. Try using different shaped cookie cutters for more fun in the kitchen with the kids! Oh, do not throw the center away! You can toast it in butter and add it to the top like a hat or lid. :) Enjoy!

Movie trivia: "Eggs in a Basket" has been featured in several classic and modern day movies like "Mary Jane's Pa", "Moon Struck" and "V for Vendetta". Recently, we saw it  from the TV series called "Crisis". What TV or movie have you seen this recipe presented?

And, I thought it would be fun to make with the kids. I hope you enjoy it too!

My Family Talk :: Solid Answers :: Discussing Teenage Defiance

My Family Talk :: Solid Answers :: Discussing Teenage Defiance



My Thoughts



Recently, I was discussion with my eight year old daughter about the importance of children obeying parents and not getting everything they ask for. The bratty and defiant behavior which can be witnessed in many areas when we are out shopping. It is sad to see children running rampant throughout the department stores. I have seen children pitching tantrums and left to scream while onlookers look at them in displeasure. The parents continued shopping and ignored the screaming child. Another time I saw small boys opening candy and tossing away the wrappers without a single thought as to if they should pay for it. What is the world coming too?

I wanted her to realize that God did not like such behavior and holds parents responsible for disciplining their children. I looked it up online and found the discussion for parents with teenagers at Focus on the Family by Dr. James Dobson. I hope you find it interesting too.

Five Reasons to Celebrate YMCA History and How We Still Feel the Impact Today


Five Reasons to Celebrate YMCA History and
How We Still Feel the Impact Today

For 163 years, the YMCA has been more than a place; offering programs and services designed to help support a healthy “spirit, mind and body.” Here are five past notable events and achievements that demonstrate the Y’s commitment to the communities they serve:

1—American Institutions: Celebrations such as Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, and organizations like the USO and the Peace Corps, all have their beginnings in the YMCA.

2Camping Under the Stars: The oldest known summer camp, Camp Dudley, first opened in 1855 and since then countless numbers of boys and girls have learned the skills and wonders of camping through the Y.

3—Inventing New Ways to Play: From James Naismith's invention of basketball while attending YMCA training to instructors creating racquetball and what would eventually become volleyball, the Y has a rich tradition in activities that are played by millions of people around the globe. One Y staffer, Robert J. Roberts, is even credited with inventing the term “body building.”

4—Nobel Laureate: Y leader John R. Mott was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1946 for the Y's groundbreaking role in raising global awareness and support and for the organization’s humanitarian efforts.

5—Furthering Education: The Y is credited with spearheading the first public libraries, night school for adult education and English as a second language.

Today, the Y serves more than 21 million people annually and offers resources at over 2,700 locations across all 50 states. Here are three ways “community” continues as the Y’s number one cause:
1--Supporting the Potential of Our Kids: The Y helps nearly 9 million children to reach their full potential each year through educational programs such as the Early Learning Readiness (ELR) program, which helps at-risk children enter Kindergarten ready to learn. There are also summer and afterschool learning programs to help young children improve their reading skills. Each program demonstrates the Y’s unwavering commitment to ensuring children are on track for a successful education, especially those in underserved communities. Here is a recent video the Y produced in partnership with the renowned dance troupe Catapult, which spotlights the amazing potential of today's youth:

2—Healthy Living: More than a place to work out, the Y focuses on helping people to live a healthy and full life. The Y staff and volunteers work within communities to create communal gardens, ensure that farmers markets are accessible, provide nutrition counseling, and ensure children have a safe route to school -- and so much more. Here is a video the Y and Catapult recently released on its healthy living initiatives:

3Support For All Our Neighbors: As one of the leading nonprofits in the nation, the Y's social services and food programs help more than 10,000 communities nationwide. From providing food, supplies and counseling when disaster strikes, to establishing recycling and sustainability programs, every effort helps to make a difference. Here is a video collaboration between the Y and Catapult on social responsibility:

The Benefits of Sea Kelp for Struggling Plants by Tom Schreiber

Sea Kelp
The Benefits of Sea Kelp for Struggling Plants
By Tom Schreiber, CEO of Organics Rx

Surprisingly, the key to helping a struggling plant actually lies in a weed – sea weed, that is.  Whether you are growing your plants indoors or outdoors, plants fed an organic diet of sea kelp is a healthy and natural way to help your plants flourish.

It might seem like a no-brainer, but healthy plants require healthy soil.  Although chemical plant foods give plants an immediate boost, they can also burn out a plant’s roots with too many nutrients that can’t be absorbed.  Sea kelp acts as a soil enrichment that provides micronutrients such as Cytokinins (carbohydrates), which release essential minerals into soil.  Since sea weed is all-natural, it continues to condition the soil even after all the nutrients have been used up.

In simple terms, a plant’s soil is like a very thick protein shake. With the help of a sea kelp booster, like Organics Rx Sea-Kelp 100, your plants are now drinking from an oversized straw versus a tiny coffee stirrer.

Just like a relaxing trip to the ocean is for us, sea kelp has amazing restorative effects for your plants too. This summer, it might be time to treat your struggling plants to a sea kelp cocktail.

Spring Cleaning Project: Window Box Fans

Spring Cleaning Project: Window Box Fans


Window Box Fans

On a lovely warm sunny day gather all your dirty Window Box Fans and take them outside to your patio or other area designated for your spring clean destination.You might want a cup of coffee too.


Window Box Fan

Grab an electric screw driver or a Phillips head screw driver. Remember to keep up with all those loose screws. A jar lid, bowl or ash tray will work just fine for storing loose screws. Gently remove the fan from the center. Do not strip the screws when unscrewing or reinserting them.

  • Unscrew the back and front of the fan.
  • Store screws safe and out of the way.
  • Gently remove the center white fan blade.

Dirty Window Box Fan Motor - May need lubrication!

If you are having problems with your motor, it may only need some lubrication from oil. (graphite or a silicon-based lubricant) A bad motor can be replaced by taking the part to your local home improvement store. They should be able to help you!


Cleaning Supplies & Accessories
 Decide what cleaning supplies you will need! 

  • Soft or recycle an old Toothbrush
  • Broom and/or Vacuum Cleaner
  • All Purpose Brush (Tire Brush or Bath tube brush)
  • Paper Towels and Rags or Towels
  • Window Cleaner and bucket with mild dish detergent

Cleaned and like NEW Window Box Fans

Window Box Fan Cleaning:

  • Wipe or wash the center fan blade with mild dish soap or Window Cleaner. Dry it!
  • Gently & carefully brush away dust from the electrical mechanism.Vacuum optional.
  • Vacuum the whole fan(front & back), wash the plastic parts and use a bath or tire brush with mild dish soap. Squirt off soap with water hose and leave to air dry. Do Not scrub the front/back too aggressively. 
  • Wipe down the outside and inside of the metal area of your fan.(control knob)
  • Wipe the electrical cord too!
  • Please, Do Not wet the electrical mechanism!!!

Allow the front and back to dry and then restore your clean Window Box Fans to their designations. We use our fans all seasons of the year. We have fans in each bedroom, the shop and the gym.

Did you know that you can flip your Window Box Fan so it can suck out hot air from inside your home? Kitchen's can be HOT places! We often flip our fan to help keep our home cooler. Try it!

Keeping your Window Box Fan clean can help it run smoother and add to the life of it!  It saves money too.
