Having fun with Candy!

A review of the "Candy" crafts!

Pop Rocks painting
Just add pop rocks to paint to make a fun sensory paint. I did not give my kids paint brushes for this, I highly encourage them to fingure paint this time sense the paint felt different.




just mix paint and pixysticks to create a fun sensory paint idea!


Pop Rocks and shaving cream
Great for sensory play. My daughter loved listing to it pop and loved moving it from palce to place in different bowls and plates.


Ice breaker 
This is great fun for play on a hot day.
First fill half of a ice cube tray with pixy stix and paint and let freeze. 
Once frozen either with a real hammer or toy one let you'r kid break the ice and play! (sense there is paint you can also paint) (I let my daughter use a real hammer with safy glasses and had no issues and there was no chips flying anywere it was actelly very easy to break and smelled very good.


Painting with M&M's


HERE'S WHAT YOU DO:
Take a one pound bag of M&M's and empty in a bowl. (The amount of M&M's will vary based on the group size.)
Have your kids sort them by color into individual cups.
Once sorted, pour enough water to cover the M&M's and begin stirring with paint brushes.
Once the color of the water has changed you are ready to paint!!


This craft covers all of the senses!
SIGHT - Sorting the M&M's by color.
TOUCH - Describing the texture of the M&Ms while sorting.
HEARING - Listening to the M&M's being stirred in the cups.
SMELL - Smelling the M&M colored water while painting.
TASTE - After the craft was over... my mom let the kids munch on a few M&Ms during snack time.

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!
