One of my favorite things to do during my spare time is scrapbooking.  I love being able to capture all of the wonderful and exciting memories in my life within a book.  A website I find very helpful and use all the time is Creative Memories.  This website is filled with great ideas for organizing a scrapbook, ideas for different layouts, and even ways to host your own scrapbooking party .  Another hobby of mine would be baking and decorating cakes.  Charm City Cakes, Carlos Bakery, and All Recipes, are some of my favorite websites to get ideas for beatiful cakes and great decorating tips. 


Teachers and Parents always have questions or concerns about their students or their children.  These questions from parents and may be dealing with ideas for lesson plans or even just questions about a child's development.  After doing research I found many helpful websites for teachers and parents that may help with their curiosity or concerns.  School Express is a great website for teachers.  This website has an enormous amount of activities, dealing with every age range and content area.  The Idea Box is also another great website for teachers.  This website has great ideas for certain themed songs for different content areas, different themed recipes, and also certain themed activites and crafts.  More 4 Kids is an information filled website for parents.  It includes tons of articles that deal with any aspect of parenting that you can think of.  Whether it be teaching your child manners, helping your child understand, or encouraging your child's social skills, this website has great advice and ideas to help many parents out.
