Big News. No, it’s not a Baby.

Or the chicken pox.

Today is a red letter day for day for my humble little blog. Perhaps I should call it a “pink letter day” since pink has been such a visual component of Kinder Craze since the very beginning. Now that you have arrived and are reading this post, I am certain that you have figured out the big secret I have been carrying since June. Kinder Craze now has a fresh new look and an all-new layout!

So why am I talking about babies and chicken pox?

Earlier this week I was so excited to share the good news about my new blog design that I posted a little sneak peek on the Kinder Craze facebook page as well as on Instagram. The image was a simple graphic of my fresh new polka dots and the words “Coming Soon”. I invited my fans to leave a comment if they had a guess as to what I surprise I had in store. I laughed when someone thought the dots were my way of telling the world that I was suffering from chicken pox. I panicked a little when people asked if the pastel polka dots meant that a baby was on the way and immediately ran to my principal. I told her that there may suddenly be some rumors circulating that I was expecting, but any speculations were most definitely not true and were simply the result of a pastel polka dotted graphic that I shared online.

Kinder Craze Blog Announcement

Now that the cat is out of the bag and the pregnancy rumors have been squashed. please allow me to greet you with open arms. WELCOME! How much do you love the new look? I personally could stare at the blog all day.  I have also made the giant leap forward and made the switch from Blogger to WordPress. I have been dreaming of this day for over a year and have spent the past several weeks planning and fine-tuning every last detail to create the best-possible experience for you, the reader.

But wait, there’s more. You know me. Everything I do has to be 110% or not at all. A new blog design wasn’t enough. An upgrade to the WordPress platform wasn’t enough. Kinder Craze also has a new domain. Now and forever, you can easily find the blog with an easy to remember web address:


I’m also saying goodbye to the hyphen. Kinder-Craze has officially evolved into the simple and streamlined Kinder Craze. Two words. No hyphen. Positively wonderful.

I also have another BIG surprise in store for Kinder Craze fans. The details are still in the works and I don’t want to spill the beans so you will just have to check back soon for my next big announcement.

No, it’s still not a baby.

Hi, I'm Maria.

I’m a former kindergarten teacher turned work-from-home mom. I still love sharing ideas and resources to make teaching easier, so you can focus on what really matters in the classroom. When I’m not working on the blog, you’ll find me chasing kids around the house with a cold cup of coffee in my hand (some things never change even once you’re out of the classroom!)
