Goblin Guts Sensory bag -
made with-
small halloween toys
and dyed green pasta in glow water.

to dye the pasta just cook pasta in water that has green food coloring in it.
here is the recipie for glow water-

note- you can leave out the glow water and use normal water, this was just as fun when they lights were on!

Tissue Paper Mummy-
Frist cut out the shape of the body from construction paper. Then rip up some white tissue paper. Once done using a paint brush, brush the whole body with glue and add pieces of ripped tissue paper. To finish add eyes and a mouth and Done!
Ghost bath-
colored water (did this with couple drops of food coloring)
shaving cream ghost in the bath
and paitned words and ghost on the walls

fun ghost contact paper suncatcher's

First using a piece of construction paper draw a ghost shape then cut out the middle, leaving a ghost outline on the paper. Then lay it down on a piece of contact paper and take ripped pieces of tissue paper and lay it in the middle to "fill" up the ghost shape. Once done lay another sheet of contact paper over the other. So that the sticky sides are toghter, and cut around the paper in the hsape of the ghost. glue on some eyes and done!
note- you can punch a hole in the tops and hang them or just simply tape them some palce.
another thing sorry if I did not make this clear once you cut out the ghost from the paper in step one you use the outline not the ghost you cut out.

Halloween hair gel sensory bag
In a zip lock bag add some hair gel and different toys. Close and tape the opening if you would like. Then Done!!! Let you'r kid/kids have fun exploring with this bag and enjoy the easy clean up!

note- This is a great Dollar store craft. 
We got everything you see here at the dollar srote for only $4.
Also great for sensory play, as the different toys all had different textures.

Shaving cream spider web
First crack open some eggs and empty them. (we cracked the very top and made lunch  
note- do not crack in half crack only a hole big enough to get the insides out.
Once empty rinse out with water, be carfull not to crack the eggs more.
Then let dry. (we ate lunch while ours dryed)
Once dry using a small funnel, funnel in some baby powder or flour.
To close it glue some tissue paper over the hole.
Once dry let ur kid/kids have fun outside throwing them!
We also added faces and words with a marker.
1. Wear shoes! I thought they were going to send egg shell everywhere but they did not they broke into two pieces, but it's still no fun stepping on broken egg shell.
2. Ask kid/kids to throw away from anyone. (not good to have baby powder in faces, also it can hurt. Again it is a empty egg)

 In one bowl I placed one pack of jello mix and some Halloween toys.
In another bowl I placed more things my kids can add in, and in a cup I palced purple water. (for color mixing fun)
Once ready I palced everything outside and let my kids have fun making witch's brew!
note- I used jello pack just for fun. Had it sitting in my cabinet for awhile  You can use food coloring if you would like.

Halloween sensory tray

Halloween Treasure rocks!

how to make-
Mix bakign soda with water. Adding the water slowly till it becomes moldable. 
note- if you want to make it colored add some food coloring to the water before you mix it toghter.
Then model some into a shape. We did pumpkins (trick- if you have cookie cutters it works very easy)
Once done add a small toy to the middle and cover with the rest of the mixture.
Let dry (can take anywere from a couple of hours to over night)
Once dry let you'r kid/kids have fun breakign them open or using a spray bottle spray with vinegar find the treasure!

also to make the faces we used a marker once it was almost dry

small halloween toys
and food coloring

We filled a ice cube tray with water and added a small amount of food coloring to each section and a toy.
Then once it was frozen, I let my daughter add them to her bath.
note- This did not stain. I used about one drop in each section and it was not even enough to change the color of the bath water.

Cotton spider web plate
Couple cotton balls
black paint
toy spider

First paint the plate black. (if using a gloss plate might have to paint it a couple times)let dry
Then with glue make a spider web and pull apart the cotton balls to put on the glue.
Last add the toy spider anyway you want.
I used a ring spider, so it was easy to add on.

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 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 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 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 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…
