Salt dough heart suncatcher

2 cups of flour 1 cup of salt
1 cup of water
then make a heart shape. (I was able to make two nice size hearts with this recipie)

Then take ur kid/kids hand and place it in the heart and push down. Once you have the outline of the hand use a knift to cut the inside hand out.

Then using perler beads let ur kid/kids fill the inside of the hand. (do not over do it one layer is good)

Place in oven at 350 degrees for about 25mins (check every now and then)

Once the beads are melted take out the heart and let it cool. (the top right picture is my sons heart once taken out of the oven)

Once cool it can be painted!

These beads are non toxic in the oven, how ever pony beads do give off some toxic fumes. You can use pony beads instead but open a window or two!!

also I did bake the hand that I cut out from these hearts and let my kids paint them too!

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!
