Totally Free Crochet Patterns

Tina Crochet Calabrese's Totally Free Crochet Pattern Blog was born out of the inheritance of hundreds of crochet patterns (that no longer are covered by copyright, or are now in the public domain) along with my personally collected stash and own creations, combined with the understanding that YOU NEED ANOTHER PATTERN for that PAS or Pattern Acquisition Syndrome. Tell your crochet friends to come and get some free patterns!

Homemade Chalk Recipes

Homemade Chalk Recipe 1
Best for ages 4 and up

Materials
* Toilet tissue tube (or an ice cube tray to create smaller chunks for younger hands)
* Duct tape
* Aluminum foil if you are using a toilet paper tube (or petroleum jelly if you're using an ice cube tray)
* Disposable plastic container
* Plaster of Paris
* Water
* Liquid tempera paint
* Spoon

Instructions

Step 1
Cover one end of the toilet paper tube with duct tape. Loosely roll an 8- by-41/2-inch piece of aluminum foil and slip it into the tube so that it lines the inside, fitting snugly. (Or coat the inside of the ice cube tray with petroleum jelly.)

Step 2
Set tube upright (duct tape side down) on protected surface.

Step 3
In a disposable plastic container, help your child mix 1 cup plaster of Paris with 1/2 cup water. Stir slowly and thoroughly until plaster is dissolved, about 1 minute.

Step 4
Immediately add 2 tablespoons paint (or more for brighter chalk color, but be careful it can stain). Mix thoroughly.

Step 5
Spoon into the tube (or ice cube tray). Tap gently so mixture settles to the bottom.

Step 6
Let dry overnight before using.

-from: http://wondertime.go.com/create-and-play/article/chalk-recipe.html


Homemade Chalk Recipe 2
This homemade chalk recipe is a great activity for you and your kids. Of course using the chalk to draw together afterwards is a lot of fun too.

You Will Need:
* 5 Egg Shells
* 1 TSP Flour
* 1 TSP Hot Water
* Food Coloring

Directions:
Wash the eggshells with antibacterial soap, rinse well and let them dry. When they are completely dry, put them in a bowl and use the back of a spoon to grind them into a fine powder.

Combine flour and hot water in a bowl. Add 1 tbsp of the ground up egg shells and mix until it forms a thick paste. Add your food coloring and mix again until the color is evenly distributed.

Form a log shape out of it, just like a regular piece of chalk. Wrap it tightly in a piece of paper towel and let it dry for about 3 days.

Works great on your sidewalk or driveway.

Start 'Em Young...

Every time I start tappin' away to write a blog or do something else on my pc, my youngest son (Marcus), comes over & tries to shanghai my keyboard, (His older brother did the same when he was young)

So, there's my solution in the photo above! Give your child his/her OWN keyboard to play with, just make sure you cut the cord off!

I did this with my older son (Ronnie) also & he has the fastest "2 finger Hunt & Peck" I've ever seen. The child could win a typing contest against a secretary!

Just thought I'd pass this on to other parents who may have had the same problem.
