Fathers day is quickly coming!

Not sure what to do for fathers day yet? Not sure what gift your little one will give him? Well here are some great ideas. (If my page is not on them they are not my creations)

Use word (or whatever you have on ur computer) to write up this poem and print it once ink dries Make sure you get a clean shoe/boot (of daddies) paint the bottom and place it on the paper first. Once that dries paint ur little ones shoe or foot (there is another pic of what the shoe would look like) and place it over the shoe mark. Let dry and done!

the saying is
""Walk a little slower daddy," said a child so small.
"I'm following in your footsteps and I don't want to fall.

Sometimes your steps are very fast,
Sometimes they're hard to see;
So walk a little slower, Daddy,
For you are leading me.

Someday when I'm all grown up,
You're what I want to be;
Then I will have a little child
Who'll want to follow me.

And I would want to lead just right,
And know that I was true;
So, walk a little slower, Daddy,
For I must follow you." -Author Unknown

1. Paint ur child's foot and place on card stock
2.when dry cut out around ur child's foot and add saying "When you are tired of reading your book,
Mark your place with my little foot!"
You can either write it with permit marker or print it out and glue it on
3.Punch a hole in the end and attach string
(you can also Laminate it)


orange and brown paint
white paper
card stock(colored is best)
white paint pen, marker, or paint
black marker

Paint child's feet brown and press onto white paper.
Paint child's hands orange and press onto white paper. Allow everything to dry.
Draw or paint three short, white stripes on the footprints to make the stitches of a football. Outline with black.
Draw three, thick, curved, black stripes on the orange handprints to look like basketballs.
Cut out your football footprints and basketball handprints.
Write or print the message, "Most Valuable Daddy" in the middle of the card stock.
Glue on the footballs and basketballs.
Don't forget to write the child's name(s) and date.
Add a frame if you like.

Big giant slime ball!!

This was such a fun activity! All you need is two boxes of slime baff and a wubble ball. We got the super wobble ball. So to make this epic slime ball use the tube it came with and place it in the ball as directed on the instructions. Next pour in all the slime baff. After that grab a hose and hold it in the tube. At first we did not let it get that big, too scared of it popping.  The kids including neighbor kids loved it. We played kid bowling and let this roll down the driveway. The kids thought it was the best thing ever to see this ball bend around them with out breaking. (will attach videos at the end) 
If you look close you can see the slime forming. You can barely tell it started as a blue ball. 
After awhiel of play we decided to make it bigger. We attached the tube and hose again and let it grow till the kids said stop.  Below is how big it got moments before popping.  This had to weigh a lot. Once the ball popped all the kids had fun playing with the slime. Two actives in o…

Pokemon balls for pretend play

We have made a huge Pokemon ball before but with the new Pokemon game out we decided to size it down a little and make it hand held. We still used styrofoam balls and choose some different type of Pokemon balls to make. So even though none of my kids can actually play the new game that has become such a hit they can still join in, play with their friends and have fun. 

Cookie cutter tried it..our results

When I first seen this idea floating around I got really excited...people made it seem like it was a easy clean way for little kids to help with pumpkin carving. Well after buying a medium pumpkin questioned started to come how is a kid going to get a cookie cutter threw the hard skin of a pumpkin?...anyway here is what happened....
I took the pumpkin first to try this out...cleaned it and let it dry...Then I used one cutter and tried pushing it into the pumpkin...yep that wouldn't work for is way to hard...So then I got out a hammer and started banging on this ...sounds easy right? nope!
The cutter kept slipping from its first spot. So being a good mom I am I called out my 5year old to try this..gave him the hammer and guess what second hit, he missed...hit my finger though...dangerous, maybe?..Anyway even with the hammer this is not have to hit these with force and that's not any force my 5 year old had...I couldn't imagine him trying wi…
