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.
notes-
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.

small halloween toys
water
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.

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!
