Those leaves in the sidebar were so tempting! I ended up cutting them out and gluing them to craft sticks for a little free play. New Kid has been really into reciting the 5 Little Pumpkins rhyme lately (and when I say “really into” I mean “15 million times a day”) so we made up a rhyme for “5 Little Leaves.”

OK. So it’s not genius, but we had a few giggles reciting it.

Let’s Celebrate!

Melanie and I began our collaboration one year ago with her Halloween and Day of the Dead coloring page mask. Since then she’s been offering the readers of this blog an exclusive, free coloring page every month. Many of them also double as activity pages, like the cute mermaid paper dolls or the school and pizza parlor printables. To celebrate Melanie is giving away a signed copy of her popular book, Mermaids on Parade! All you need to do is enter a valid email in the entry box below (you don’t need to sign in with facebook, that’s simply an option). Only U.S. mailing addresses, please. Ends 10/23/2013 at 12am.


If you don’t win, never fear, Melanie signs all copies of her books purchased through her Amazon vendor link.
