redo your own littlest pet shop animals

Recently we redid a my little pony and ever sense my daughter has been wanting to redo another toy. So today we found a littlest pet shop ferret that was covered in green paint and need to be redone as the green paint was permitted and anything you use to take it off with also take off all the under paint.So we started first using some nail polish remover we took off as much paint as possible. The eye paint came off pretty easy but you can always leave the eyes and work around them. Once dry then you can start painting. I am no artist so painting for me is hard especially when I am watching my two kid also paint. (and praying it doesn't get any place but the work space lol)
Make sure you do not use washable paint.
Once done painting, let dry then go over with a spray for plastic. (to help keep the paint from chipping, depending on the spray it could also make the toy shinny, I used Krylon Fusion clear coat)
Once dry its done.
This one is the one we made, the idea was to make it look like a chocolate cake with pink and red sprinkles. :)
If your kids made one send in the pics so they can be shared!~

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!
