Dancing oobleck

To start make the oobleck (to make it just add equal parts of cornstrach and water should be a soild when played with and a liquid when just holding)
Then there is two ways (i know of) to do this either cover your speaker with plastic wrap or use a metal tin on top of your speaker ( the meatal tin didnt work for me so i used plastic wrap make sure it is pulled tight)
Then pour the oobleck on top.
Now is the tricky part finding the right sound to make it dance the three i used were 40 Hz, 50 Hz, and 63 Hz. ( i simply went to youtube and searched these sounds I also turned it up all the way)
Once you find the right tone have fun watching it move!
hint-
try adding food coloring as it is moving to see it mix in.

Another thing is we found out these tones were really upsettign to our cats. (didnt know some tones bother there ears) So if you have animals you might want to move them to another room. Sadly we had to stop soon after we started cause of this but will do again another day that we can move our cats to another room.

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!
