Product review ~ Glo Floam

for ages 4+
bought at toysrus on sale for $3.5
can buy online just search google for glo floam

The back of the package says you can roll it, mold it, and cover it, and it glows in the dark!
So we bought it sense it was on sale for cheap and we have yet to try it. Here is our review~

for looks I give a 5 out of 5
the package is nice, looks very fun

for mess I give it a 3 out of 5
the blue was very sticky to hands and anything else it touched. (I did read the booklet that came with it and it says if sticky let it sit for 15 minutes, but seriously what kid is just gonna want it to sit for 15 mins before playing... either way we did and it was still sticky the whole time we played)
Also if you mix colors that is it you can not get them apart again, and of course my kids loved to mix the colors.

for play time I give it a 3 out of 5
My daughter played for about 20 mins before she moved on and never asked for it again....(its been about a week now)
It says it glows in the dark but for us it really did not. The green did some but not bright enough to even get a picture. It did glow some under black light (as you see in picture) but it was a little upsetting that even after we "charged" it like the box said it didn't glow in the dark. Now you can use play doh molds and make shapes and things and let them dry out to play with over and over but we did not let it dry out.

for packaging I give it a 1 out of 5
They come in these little plastic containers that have these little plastic lids you are suppose to store it in when done playing. The morning after we played I went to move them and noticed one popped open and dried out. They really could have made a better way to store it.

All in all I would not have spent more then what I did for this item and will not be buying it again.

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!
