Nature tree~

At the end of every year, my family likes to help the animals who mind find a hard time getting food a tthis time of the year. It's a family tradition here. This year we ended up with 1 small fake tree, 1 big 6 foot tree, and a small 3 foot real tree. So this is what we did with the little real tree to help and give back to the earth this year. Check it out and thank you all for being fans!~


In this nature tree we decided to do~

Different pine cone bird feeders (pine cones covered with peanut butter and bird seed)The other that we did was a pine cones covered with peanut butter and cranberries.

Then we did two different kinds of tree garland.
One was cheerios on a string. (can see in the bottom left picture)
The other was cranberries and peanuts on a string. (I used a string and a sewing needle for the cranberries and just tied a peanut on every now and then. (can be seen in bottom right picture)

Then the star was a cardboard cut out covered with peanut butter and birdseed.

Last we added the left over peanuts, cranberries, and birdseed to the bottom of the tree stand and set it outside.

note- you can make any of these and hang them on any tree outside!

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!
