Zeb's Penguin craft!

First you need some eye balls! and then you make a circle in the middle of the plate. Then you cut a rectangle for the body and the Sides to the plate for the two arms. The last thing to cut are the three triangles for the beak and the feet. I drew some hair on the top of mine. He sure is cute!

Here is a link to a craft similar to mine.

Zeke's craft of the day!

The Bulldog Dart!

Here are your supplies:

One piece of typing or copy paper.

Here is the video:


1. fold a letter sized sheet of paper lengthwise to get a center line.

2. fold two corners into the center line.

3. Turn the paper over and fold those corners in half.

4. Fold the pointy nose back on itself to form the snub nose. You might try folding the nose underneath, but both ways work well.

5. Fold the whole plane lengthwise.

6. Finally, fold the wings in half to complete the bulldog dart.

Thanks for reading this blog. Have fun making the best airplane in the world. Share it with your friends! Bye!

Sweet Potato Biscuits

There was a seven cent a pound special at Wal-mart on Sweet Potatoes so I told my dear husband to bring some home. Boy did he ever. He's so sweet;) So here is my first use of the wonderful sweet potato. One, large that is.

Sweet Potato Biscuits!

This makes about 14 to 16 large biscuits.

3 1/2 whole wheat flour
4 table spoons of honey or other sweetener
5 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
12 tablespoons margarine or butter
Spray for pan
1 1/2 c. sweet potato or one very large one smashed and chilled
2/3 c. yogurt

Mix like you would any other biscuits and then bake at 425 degrees for 20 to 24 minutes. MMMMmmmmm.
