After this long rainy day..

I sit here updating my blog with toys, crafts, and rice on my floor. Two kids still playing not ready for bed yet and no dinner started, but in all honesty i'm happy. I love that my kids play there little hearts out every day learning instead of sitting watching tv all day or fighting with each other. Yes at the end of the day there is a lot of cleaning up to do but with music on that makes it a simple task. I do wonder though how people who hate mess deal with kids?I believe with every mess kids are learning. No kid wakes up in the morning thinking how can I piss off my parents today. With that being said it is now clean up time and time for dinner after. Tonight we are having "crabby patties" in honor of SpongeBob of course. Goodnight all!

Organizing for summer cheap!

Recently I made my way to my local dollar store(same as Poundland in UK) and I am so happy I did. There was so many bins and buckets in many colors. So here is how I cleaned up my kids summer toys. For small balls, chalk, and bubbles I grabbed 3 small bins as seen above. For water toys I grabbed a big blue bin and I made sure all bins I bought had holes rather they were for wet toys or not. We got small bugs in our storage room and I am hoping the holes would kept bugs from setting up home in the bottom of the bins. Some other ideas we like to use but have not yet are... Trash bin for bigger balls or large shoe rack works too Clothes hamper for pool toys & Mesh bag for sand toys Before we really even got some what organized we use to use crates but I found that with many kids going threw creates to find certain toys it quickly got messy so I really like the idea of having bins for certain toys. I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…

Fizzing planets

I am sure I said this before but this really was one of my personal favorite actives. It came out amazing and my son loved it. Would for sure do this again. 
So it is simply called fizzing planets. You mix a little bit of water in baking soda and add food coloring to color it like the planet you choose. I went by a simple google picture to color the planets and then I realized I got some wrong but we also had a book to look at and read to see some real colors.  Once you make your planets let them cry for a couple of hours. You can place them in the freezer to speed this up. 

Then slowly pour vinegar over the planets to see them fizz! It started to look like a Galaxy then in the end it ended up looking like one big planet.

So neat!
