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.

Big giant slime ball!!

This was such a fun activity! All you need is two boxes of slime baff and a wubble ball. We got the super wobble ball. So to make this epic slime ball use the tube it came with and place it in the ball as directed on the instructions. Next pour in all the slime baff. After that grab a hose and hold it in the tube. At first we did not let it get that big, too scared of it popping.  The kids including neighbor kids loved it. We played kid bowling and let this roll down the driveway. The kids thought it was the best thing ever to see this ball bend around them with out breaking. (will attach videos at the end) 
If you look close you can see the slime forming. You can barely tell it started as a blue ball. 
After awhiel of play we decided to make it bigger. We attached the tube and hose again and let it grow till the kids said stop.  Below is how big it got moments before popping.  This had to weigh a lot. Once the ball popped all the kids had fun playing with the slime. Two actives in o…

Cookie cutter tried it..our results

When I first seen this idea floating around I got really excited...people made it seem like it was a easy clean way for little kids to help with pumpkin carving. Well after buying a medium pumpkin questioned started to come how is a kid going to get a cookie cutter threw the hard skin of a pumpkin?...anyway here is what happened....
I took the pumpkin first to try this out...cleaned it and let it dry...Then I used one cutter and tried pushing it into the pumpkin...yep that wouldn't work for is way to hard...So then I got out a hammer and started banging on this ...sounds easy right? nope!
The cutter kept slipping from its first spot. So being a good mom I am I called out my 5year old to try this..gave him the hammer and guess what second hit, he missed...hit my finger though...dangerous, maybe?..Anyway even with the hammer this is not have to hit these with force and that's not any force my 5 year old had...I couldn't imagine him trying wi…

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…
