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.

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 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…

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…
