I have been trying to get out of the rut of having the kids eat cereal and milk or hot oatmeal for breakfast and I came across this Delicious recipe from Family Fun.
French Breakfast Muffins.
They are great just out of the oven but can also be frozen so that you can grab them and just pop them in the microwave for a quick, easy breakfast when you are in a hurry.
Little D and two and Baby K love them too. Of course, saying they were FRENCH muffins some how made them more exotic and enjoyable! LOL!
Their main website, http://familyfun.go.com/ has lots of fun art projects, crafts and boredom breakers for kids of all ages. Some have video learn-how-to-do-it too.
We have made the French Breakfast Muffins three times now and it is an easy recipe that the kids can help with.
Besides viewing the recipe you can also watch a video!
I read this in a La Leche League Newsletter, League Spirit. Vol 105-No.3. July-Sept. 2008.

I just finished reading a great children’s book. I wanted to read it to preview it to figure out the general age level for reading it to see if it is okay for Little D. The book is called The Forty-Acre Swindle. It is by Dave & Neta Jackson. It is fictional but has factual information about George Washington Carver, Booker T. Washington and mentions W.E.B. Dubois too. On the back it is recommended for children ages 8-12 (which I agree with but someone as old as 12 can handle more truth then just prejudices mentioned vs racism and slavery).
A great quote that is in the book from George Washington Carver…
‘Don’t tell me it’s about right,” he’d say to a student who had just given him an inexact answer. ‘About right might as well be wrong.” And then he’d say, “If you come to a stream that’s five feet wide, and you jump four and a half feet, well, that’s about right. But you might as well just topple in at the near band and save yourself the effort.”
I received a booklet from someone recently that looks neat. Fun, educational games and learning for kids. Materilas are targeted from early childhood, k-12, family, adult and English language learners. Reading, writing, science, math, etc.
Lot of free lesson plans that can be printed. The meet standards too! Great for adults doing lesson planning or some games to let your child play online!
check it out and tell me what you think. You can post your favorite websites for kids, for you, for lesson plans, etc. too!
