Pickles, Pickles, I Like Pickles by Brigitte Brulz

Yes, I had to include the book I wrote, but I saved it for number 21 since it was also on the last list I created.

Here is the description of the book: “A young boy who really likes pickles wants to grow pickles in his garden, but he is surprised by what he discovers – there are no bread and butter pickle plants or dill pickle trees. He learns a lot as he and his mom transform seeds from the store into yummy pickles to enjoy on everything from hot dogs to ice cream. Well, maybe not ice cream!”

Even if you don’t purchase the book, you are still welcome to print free coloring pages, activity ideas, and a 21 page teacher’s guide on Fun Extras.

Happy National Pickle Month!

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!

Have you done any Easter eggsperiments or projects this year?

Easter Project with Painted Eggs and Paper

A while back I mentioned a birthday pickle card I had found, which I thought was quite entertaining.

Well, today I thought it would be fun to share with you an Easter pickle card I found at Dollar Tree (2/$1).

Easter Pickle Card

And for the inside…

Easter Pickle Card

Of course, I had to buy a few of them to send out to family members.

If you would like to learn why eggs are associated with Easter, where the first chocolate Easter eggs were made, how tall the tallest Easter egg was, and how Easter is celebrated in Sweden you should check out these interesting facts about Easter on Brisbane Kids.

This card is entertaining, and the Easter eggsperiments and projects are a lot of fun; however, Easter isn’t really suppose to be all about bunnies, eggs, chocolate, or pickles. Easter is about much more than that!

Easter is about recognizing Jesus’s resurrection after dying on the cross in place of anyone who chooses to accept Him. I really like the way the Gospel is shown on Life in 6 Words, which you can find here.

Romans 10:9 (NIV) says “…if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

Growing Hands-On Kids offers resources and activities for teaching the true meaning of Easter to children if you are interested.

May you and your family have a wonderful day today!

Do you celebrate Easter?

Does your family have a favorite TV show you watch together?

My family enjoys watching MasterChef Junior, and I have been trying to find out when the new season will premiere. A while back, I had read it was going to start on February 26th this year.

But it didn’t.

Now, it appears it should be starting again on March 12th. I guess we will see if that date is correct. It is amazing to watch children between the ages of eight and thirteen create such elegant dishes. Especially when they use ingredients I don’t even recognize!

I enjoy watching how the kids often band together and encourage one another even though they are competing against each other. They are still competitive, but they are also compassionate.

Sometimes, I wish I could taste test the dishes the contestants have created. Other times, not so much.

from book Jobs of a Preschooler...preschooler being a taste tester

Be a taste tester like the girl in the book Jobs of a Preschooler.

I don’t think I could handle the challenging task of being a judge. The emotions of the kids when they are eliminated can be quite heartbreaking, and I don’t think I would want that responsibility.

My daughters and I do enjoy baking and creating foods together, and it is not uncommon to hear my daughters discussing with one another whether or not our food dishes are “MasterChef worthy”.

Typically they are not. And when they might be, it is probably because we found a good recipe to follow step-by-step and didn’t mess up.

If you have ever seen the show, you may know a Mystery Box Challenge is when the contestants have a large crate they can not see through in front of them flipped upside down. When the contestants are given permission, they lift the crate to discover an assortment of ingredients they use to make a dish.

A few years ago, we celebrated the start of the MasterChef Junior season with our own Mystery Box Challenge. My girls were nervous as they lifted the crate because they had no idea what I was going to have them create.

I think they were pleasantly surprised when they lifted the lid and found vanilla ice cream, marshmallows, M&Ms, cookies, chocolate syrup, chocolate chips, saltine crackers, nuts, and a few other items that could be used as toppings on ice cream.

So, it wasn’t a true Mystery Box Challenge. I didn’t have them cook or bake anything, and I didn’t taste test either of their creations.  But we still had fun.

Be a chef like the girl in the book Jobs of a Preschooler.

This is a picture of one of their creations. It had vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, marshmallows, M&Ms, and broken cream filled cookies mixed together.

ice cream creation

Unfortunately, I can’t find the picture of my other daughter’s creation. I personally would have prefered vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, chocolate chips, and crushed saltine crackers mixed together.

Yes, crushed saltine crackers in my ice cream. It’s tasty!

No pickles, though.

When I celebrated National Pickle Day, I had one student tell me he likes olives in his ice cream when I gave him a coloring page for the picture above. I’m kind of curious if he really does.

Along with the experiments and recipes to try at home, The Science Chef explains different kitchen tools, measuring techniques, stovetop cooking terms, and safety rules. It also defines various cooking skills such as the difference between chopping, dicing, mincing, and slicing. Perfect for the little scientist who also likes to cook!

20 Gifts Under $20 for Pickle Lovers

(This post contains affiliate links, which means I may make a small commission at no extra charge to you if you click on one of the links and make a purchase. Thank you!)

National Pickle Day is this Wednesday, November 14th!

I have put together a list of 20 pickle-themed gifts for pickle lovers under $20 that would be great for a variety of ages.

These pickle-themed items may even make great Christmas gifts! Can you believe Christmas is already next month?

I found all of these items by doing an online search. The only item that I have actually seen in person is item number one, so please do your own research before making a purchase to determine if it is truly what you want.

1. Pickles, Pickles, I Like Pickles Book

Of course I had to put Pickles, Pickles, I Like Pickles on this list! This is a great gift for children and adults (so I’ve been told). Free coloring pages and activity ideas are available to go along with the book if you are interested.

2. I Heart Pickles T-Shirt 

I have seen quite a few pickle-themed shirts, but I like how simple this I Heart Pickles T-Shirt is. It’s available in sizes for youth, men, and women.

3. I’m Kind of A Big Dill T-Shirt 

Here is another simple pickle t-shirt with a little humor. This “I’m kind of a big dill” t-shirt is available in sizes for youth, men, and women. It is also available in five different colors: asphalt (shown in picture), black, cranberry, grass, and navy.

4. Pickle Pen 

Many of the reviews state that this pickle-shaped pen is cheaply made; however, it may make an interesting gag gift.

5. I’m Kinda a Big Dill Ceramic Mug

This may make a great gift for those who like pickles and hot drinks, although the thought of the two being mixed together doesn’t sound very appetizing. Coffee and pickles anyone? I like that the handle is shaped like a pickle on this “I’m kinda a big dill” ceramic mug.

6. I Love You More Than Pickles Box Sign 

If you can’t stand pickles, then maybe you shouldn’t buy this for someone you love. That would be a little insulting, don’t you think? Instead, those who love pickles may be interested in buying this “I love you more than pickles” sign for their loved ones.

7. Pickle Lover Street Sign Sticker Decal 

I’m curious what would be the best location to place this 8.25″ x 2″ Pickle Lover Dr sticker decal. Do you have any ideas?

8. Pickle Fabric Button Earrings 

These pickle fabric button earrings are handmade in Omaha, Nebraska. I laughed when I read the part of the description that states “ears are NOT included”. It appears as though there are multiple designs available besides pickles including science, pigs, manatees, basketballs, dragonflies, sea horses, and more.

9. Pickle Charm Hypoallergenic Stud Earrings 

These pickle earrings look like pickles cut in half lengthwise on the backs. As of this writing, there were no reviews of this product.

10. Pickle Slice Earrings 

I haven’t worn earrings in so long that the earring holes in my ears have closed, yet I included three pairs of earrings in this list. I’m sharing them because I thought each pair looked so unique and different. Part of the description of these pickles slice earrings states that these are “straight from the pickle jar to your ears”, but I’m assuming they are not real pickles. These pickle slice earrings also have no reviews as of this writing, but I think they look cute in the picture.

11. I’m Kind of A Big Dill Bib

Aren’t all babies “kind of a big dill”? Sorry, I don’t think this would fit on an adult because it only comes in size small. It also only comes in this light blue color.

12. Lil’ Pickle Short Sleeve Onesie 

This “Lil’ Pickle” short sleeve onesie is available in five sizes: newborn, 6 months, 12 months, 18 months, and 24 months. I think it would be funny to get a picture of a little one trying a pickle for the first time while wearing this short sleeve onesie.

13. I’m Kind of A Big Dill Long Sleeve Onesie

This “i’m kind of a big dill” long sleeve onesie is available in size 6 months. Wouldn’t it look cute on a baby boy or girl?

14. Zippered Pickle Pillow Case

This is a large 20″ x 54″ zippered pickle pillow case, not an actual pillow.

15. Keep Calm and Eat Pickles Pillow Case 

This is a 16″ x 16″ pillow case with a reminder to “Keep Calm and Eat Pickles”.

16. Bring Me a Pickle Socks

These socks are only available in one size. There are multiple other possibilities to choose from besides “a pickle” such as “bring me ice cream” or “bring me popcorn”.

17. Rubber I Heart Pickles Bracelet 

This is a simple silicone rubber I Heart Pickles wrist band bracelet available in green.

18. Personalized Pickle Charm Bracelet 

This pickle cord charm bracelet can be personalized with a letter of choice.

19. Pickle Apron

This pickle apron could be used for any pickle lover who also enjoys cooking or maybe even crafting. It includes a pocket to hold small items.

20. Pickle Coin Purse

This zippered pickle coin purse may become a pickle lover’s favorite coin purse.

Will you be purchasing a pickle-themed item as a gift this year?
