Juicing is certainly helpful for all ages. I would suggest that before you juice with your little ones, you check with their pediatrician. Anyway, here are some recipes that are delicious and nutricious, for adults 🙂

Try this winter experiment for soapy fun. Using soap bubbles, you’ll turn them into frozen bubbles.
What You’ll Need:
Spoon or whisk
This is an activity for a cold, cold (below freezing) day when there is no wind in the air. Start by making a strong bubble solution. Mix 1/2 cup soap powder, 1/2 cup sugar, and 3 cups hot water. (This mixture will help the bubbles last longer.) Take the bubble solution and a bubble wand outside. Blow a bubble, and catch it on the wand. Let the bubble sit resting on the wand in the cold air. In the below-freezing chill, the bubble will soon freeze into a fragile crystal ball. What do you think?

Need free read aloud books to entertain your child? I recently found out that Barnes and Nobel hosts 16 free read aloud books for children on their website. You can access them from your favorite browser right on your computer. This is a wonderful resource for classroom teachers, because almost all of these popular books are read by the authors themselves. It makes a great supplement to any preschool or kindergarten activity with these books. Some popular stories are read by celebrities. Rachael Ray, as a matter of fact, reads a famous Dr. Seuss story, and quite well, may I add!

Did you know that coloring with your child is a great way to connect with them? Of course you did!! Nobody cares mom and dad if you can’t stay within the lines when you color. And by the way, it is most certainly OK to be silly with them once in a while. To remain childlike, NOT childish, but childlike is the key. Here is a link to help you.
In some cases, you will notice that the books are being read by the author who wrote them!
