Bath time fun!

Bath time should never be stressfull or borning! Have fun with these ideas!


Buy some glycerin soap at a craft store. Melt it in the microwave, add food coloring, and pour into a mold. I used an ice cube tray. You can also add essential oils if you go for scents, though I find that a bit unnecessary for bath crayons. Takes about an hour to cool completely, then pop out of the mold and you have crayons!

 need-
Microwavable plate
Soap remnants in a variety of colors

1.Group a small pile of soap remnants on a microwavable plate.

2.Microwave on high for 10 seconds, then test carefully for doneness (a parent's job). The soap is ready if it's lukewarm and mushy. If it's not, microwave for another 10 seconds and retest.
3.Start crumbling. When all the pieces have been crumbled, gather a small handful and squeeze them gently into a ball (Ping-Pong size). Repeat for additional balls.

glo bath with glo stick cheap and lights up the bath enough to not have to use a light

deep sea bath -seaweed on the walls (with crayola paint)blue water

i just mixed baby shampoo and washable paint (it comes off easier with the shampoo added)

Farm bath



Whale Water Scoop
What you'll need
Clean plastic gallon milk jug
Permanent marker
Scissors
How to make it
Turn the gallon jug onto its side so that the handle is at the top. With the marker, draw a mouth shape on the base of the jug, extending partway up the sides.

Cut along the lines with scissors, creating a wide-mouthed scoop (a parent's job).

Using the marker, outline the edge of the mouth and add eyes and a blowhole.

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 pumpkin...fail?we 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 up...like 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 anyone..skin 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 easy..you have to hit these with force and that's not any force my 5 year old had...I couldn't imagine him trying wi…
