need-
sticks and string
First line the sticks up in a row, then using the string wrap the first stick then move on to the second stick and once that one is wrapped wrap the first one to the second one. Keep going wrapping the next stick to the one before to make the raft strong. 
note- You can also use another stick and a piece of paper to make a sail. Ours was just not staying in place.

Magic sticks or decoration sticks. 
Can be used for fun or to show off.
note- not for kids who will poke/hit another kid with them as these can be pointy and hurt.
need-
sticks and paint. 
Thats it and have fun painting. 
We used washable paint.

Star stick craft with feather
need-
sticks
string
feather

Frist lay the sticks out into a star shape then using the string tie them toghter. note- its a little tricky as you can see we had to tie it in many places to make it strong.
Once done tie the feather to a piece of string then tie the other side to the star and done!


A nature display-
First find a large y shape stick. Then using yarn or string wrap the stick going horizontal accross. Once done tie the string off. My daughter also add some beads. I used two tacks and hung by the strings on either side. Once done add whatever treasures you find on a nature walk and enjoy you'r new display!

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!
