2016 year in review!
Glow stick experiment has been consistently my top post and pin. I love that you can take an inexpensive item and use it for inquiry and STEM learning (science, technology, engineering, math).
My dear friend, Patty, wrote a wonderful guest post for me about her trip to Sansepolcro, Tuscany. The story of college friends reconnecting is really worth reading!
I loved working with middle and high school students to achieve college dreams. Summer STEM camps were one of my favorite projects and I learned a lot about creating a safe environment. 9 tips for camp counselors and volunteers has my best advice for organizing camp. You may also like Upbeat graduation songs for camp and closing ceremonies.
I’ve put together a series on pies, and the most visited this year was Chocolate chess pie, an old Southern standard. I made it new by using single source dark chocolate from our local chocolatier.
Hawaii is my happy place and if you’ve been following along you know I enjoy writing about adventures there. Sweets of Hawaii was a top post for 2016. It’s so yummy to try the ways Portuguese, Japanese, and other cultures’ sweets have become local flavor in Hawaii.
Lisa’s Home Bijou is my area for writing reviews of classic movies. Meet Me in St. Louis was the favorite in 2016. Judy Garland stars in a nostalgic look at a year’s worth of holidays in 1903.
A project close to my heart was the DIY toddler pillow. I loved making a special lovey for my grandsons.
I hope you’ll check out these posts if you missed them and spend some time exploring my other posts. I’d love to hear about highlights of your year!
