Pinkie's Picks - June 13, 2011

I think it's been too long since I've shared any Pinkie's Picks. Here is a mismash of goodies I've found recently.

Mommy Moment shares a list of 10 Everyday Math Skills for Young Children. I do the counting out loud a lot with Bean.

Aqua and red make up my new favorite color combination. Look at this post and this one from Allsorts. She's inspired me to paint our back porch swing these colors.

If I could be trusted with power tools, I'd love to make one of these DIY Outdoor Chaise Lounges from Shanty2Chic.  

This recipe for Slow Cooker Risotto by Planning with Kids looks yummy.  I wonder if Gordon Ramsay would approve?  She also has a wonderful Google Spreadsheet with all of her meal planning recipes here.

About a year ago, I found a Montessori mom blog, A Bit of This and a Bit of That.  Jojoebi shares their lessons as well as crafts sells in her Etsy store.  After the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan back in March, she started sharing their story of putting their lives back together in posts called "2:46".  A couple of days ago she shared a post showing then and now pictures of Japan that had been published by the Winnipeg Free Press.  I recommend taking a look at those pictures and reading jojoebi's latest 2:46 post.  As you can see, life is not back to normal for those in Japan.  It might not be for years and years.
