There’s nothing prettier than a nicely folded napkin gracing a table.

I’ve always loved fancy napkin folding techniques. I think of it as origami for fabric.  And let’s face it, with less of us sitting down for dinner each night, isn’t it sort of a fun idea to do something fancy when we actually do make the time?

Luckily, Good Housekeeping has come up with 9 astounding napkins that will perk up any family gathering.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have lunch with a Lemur?   

How about snacks with a Slow Loris?

The other day at summer camp we held our very own Chopped Junior competition. It was a total blast.  We divided the campers into 2 groups and handed them a bag filled with 9 ingredients.  Their task was to make a starter or side dish, an entree, and a dessert all in an hour’s time.  I've done this before for parties and it's always been a huge success.  

Back to School comes earlier and earlier each year!  As summers grow shorter and school looms large, I thought I would take a moment to highlight some of the 2017 projects made specifically for those students looking to spice up and personalize their first days of school.  I have also included a few favorites from years past. 

Here's to a great new school year!

For some reason known only to the Universe and YouTube, slime has resurfaced and become a sensation.  Chalk it up to viral videos, or maybe something in the school lunch program, but recently kids began making slime again - like they were working for Nickelodeon. In fact, the trend was so hot for awhile, that Amazon actually ran out of Elmer's glue, or at least that's the urban myth.
