sticky rice tree~

First cut two trees out of contact paper, making sure they are both the same size.
Then to make the rice. Add some rice to a zip lock bag a little bit of water and some green food coloring.Mix and lay out on a tray to dry.

While it is drying cut out some ornaments from either felt or paper.

Once the rice is dry pour it on one of the contact paper tree's. (the sticky side of course) and add some paper ornaments.

Then place the other contact paper tree sticky side down on top of the first tree. This is just to help keep the rice on the tree and not falling off. (so the rice will be inbetween the two conatct paper) and Done!~

note- make sure to brush off any rice that is not sticking on, you want to make sure the rice is dry before placing on tree.

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!
