Dream Catcher

need-
Sturdy paper plate OR cardboard 
Yarn 
Scissors 
Beads 
Tape or glue
feathers

1. Cut your paper plate or cardboard into a ring. It's important that the material you are using for your ring is sturdy, otherwise it will just buckle when you begin to wrap the yarn around it.

2. Cut slits all around your paper plate, make at least 8 slits around.

3. Glue or tape the end of the yarn to the back of your ring. Begin to string your yarn through the slits all around the ring, making an uneven criss-cross pattern.

4. When you are happy with your pattern cut the yarn, leaving a little extra. Glue or tape the extra yarn to the back of the ring, making it into a loop shape to hang your dream catcher.


5. Cut 3 lengths of yarn, tie a knot at the end of each. String beads onto the yarn and glue or tape them to the back of your dream catcher.
I left one a little longer and tied a couple feathers to the end.

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!
