Free Shoe Matching Game for Preschoolers

This post brought to you by Stride Rite. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Mess For Less.


My girls are very rough on their shoes. If you think that only boys put a ton of wear and tear on their shoes, then I am here to tell you that girls do just as much! My kids play hard and do so on all kinds of surfaces - blacktop, grass, gravel, bark, and sand. Any shoes they own need to be durable in order to last a long time. My youngest daughter is usually the receiver of hand-me-downs and frankly she doesn't get a lot of shoes handed down because her older twin sisters just destroy them. Stride Rite Made 2 Play Collection shoes are perfect for outdoor play. They are designed with dirt-shedding soles so kids aren't tracking so much dirt into the house. Read on to learn more about them and to download your free shoe matching memory game.

Saving for College PLUS Free Summer Tracing Printables

This is a sponsored post on behalf of ScholarShare. I received compensation but all opinions are my own.

When we moved to Northern California we were shocked at the high cost of living. We had lived in a New York City suburb before and that isn't cheap, but it looks like a bargain compared to the prices of everything here. Saving for three kids to go to college while living in this area is tough. That's why I am so excited about ScholarShare’s 529 Day "You Start It, We Match It" Promotion . When you open up a ScholarShare 529 College Savings Account on Friday, May 29, 2015 from 12:01am to 11:59pm PT, ScholarShare will match $50 of the initial deposit! That is free money! Even though my kids are young (ages 5 and 6) we have been saving for college since they were babies. I hope that the learning they are doing now is something that they will continue through their college years. In the spirit of learning, I am sharing some free preschool/kindergarten printables to help your child keep the learning going this summer. Read on to find out how you can download them.


Southwestern Baked Chicken

Many thanks to Mountain High Yoghurt for sponsoring today’s story on Southwestern Baked Chicken.

While my family enjoys chicken, sometimes they get bored with the same old chicken dishes I typically prepare. To switch things up a bit I made this Southwestern Baked Chicken using Mountain High Yoghurt and crushed tortilla chips. The result was chicken that was moist on the inside, yet had a satisfying crunch on the outside. You must try this if you are looking to add a little variety to your chicken dinner. Your family will thank you!

Mountain High Yoghurt tastes great on its own, but you can also use it as substitute in healthy cooking or as a component of a delicious and easy recipe as I will doing today. As a bonus, when you are done with the yoghurt, you can have your kids make a craft with the container.

You will feel good serving Mountain High Yoghurt to your family since it is a versatile and wholesome food that is a great value. You will seriously use one tub of yoghurt multiple times a day. I enjoy having some for breakfast with some berries and nuts mixed in. My kids love Mountain High Yoghurt as a snack. You can even try it in dessert, as a baking substitute.

What makes Moutain High Yoghurt so unique is that they use a traditional European method where their yoghurt is cultured in the cup. This means there are no added gelatin or anything else. The milk they use is from cows that have never been treated with growth hormones so you know you are getting a natural and simply made yoghurt that tastes delicious.

To make this Southwestern Baked Chicken you will be using Mountain High Yogurt - Plain variety. Dipping the chicken is the yoghurt provides a great coating for the crushed tortillas and helps keep the chicken moist and tender while cooking.

To make the tortilla crumbs, you will crush the chips in a zippered plastic bag by rolling over them with a rolling pin. If you have a little helper in the kitchen, this would be a fun step for them to help with.

Dip the chicken breast on both sides into the yoghurt and then dredge through the tortilla crumbs, carefully covering both sides.

You will then bake the chicken and when it comes out of the oven, it will be moist on the inside and crunchy on the outside.
