Pinterest finds this week

I stumbled across this PBS site:
Kids can build things out of stuff that you have around the house.  They can build things like a door alarm, can car, and marble mazes.  Just to name a few.  They also have different science experiments to try.  There are ideas on how to construct objects out of different products like newspapers and paper towels. The Kazoo and Soap Powered boat looks interesting too.

I have found several recipes to try on this blog posting of 30 Yummy Weight Watcher Dinners from a spectacled owl.

I can't wait to try this experiment with my little scientist from buggy and buddy.

Pineapple Angel Food Cake

I saw this posted on and we tried it tonight.
First, we poured 1 box of angel food cake mix into a mixing bowl. Next, we poured in 1 can of crushed pineapple and mixed it in.

It began to fizz and it was really fluffy when we mixed it. No, we did not need to use a mixer. 

 Next, we sprayed a 9x13 pan with pam cooking spray and poured the cake mix into the pan.
  We baked the cake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. The cake was yummy and I look forward to trying other fruit.
