Glowing Ideas!

glow in the dark ring toss
Great $1 game(the glo sticks only cost $1 and i had the paper towel holder but you can use anything that will work to throw the rings on)
(my own pic)

glo in the dark flubber (next pic is it in the dark!)
What You Need:
8 oz glue 
glow in the dark paint(can also use neon paint)
measuring cup

Pour 8oz of glue into a large bowl
Fill the empty bottles with water & shake to help get all the glue out
Pour the glue/water mixture into the bowl with the glue
add glow in dark paint (i added about 1 table spoon)
Add 1 teaspoon of Borax to 1/2 cup of warm water & mix
Pour Borax mixture into your glue mixture - a little at a time
mix and done! (the paint i used made me let it sit out in the sun for min. before play)

I went over the word space and the stars in glow paint and I added some glow sticks to the bath!
Can also use neon paint!
neon ice cube paint
i froze in a ice cube tray neon paint and some water then i put my daughters glow stars(we got at the dollar store) once it was all frozen I took them out and my daughter painted the bathtub and walls. The stars made it very much easier to get the cubs out and sense this is neon paint you need a black light for this one.

regular neon paint and a black light

glow in the dark paint!
shaving cream (can add some food coloring) and mix that with glow in the dark paint! Very fun!

glow explosion! 
add glow paint to baking soda then add vinegar!(dont need a black light for glow paint)
or add water that has highlighter in it to the baking soda then add vinegar and use a black light

glow water!
Cut a not toxic highlight in half (or take the back off) take out the felt and either let it sit in water for couple hours or squeeze the ink out in the water(that's what i did) go in a dark room and turn on a black light(black light is needed for this!) i also gave my daughter other bowls and cups and things to play with this
glow water
just add some neon paint to water and mix good (need a black light for this)

just add chalk to glow water and let it sit for 2 days then have fun with a black light and chalk bored! (sorry not a good picture much better in person)

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…

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…

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…
