Detox bath for kids

Detox baths are great for supporting our immune system and improving our well- being and health.

how to~
Start by filling a bath with warm water. (not to hot but not cold)
~~~~~~~~~~~
Them add in some Epson salt
Epson salt helps relax the body, relive pain while eliminating toxins. 
How much is listed below(thank you to wiki for that info)
  • For children under 60 lbs, add 1/2 cup to a standard bath.
  • For children 60 lbs to 100 lbs, add 1 cup to a standard bath.
  • For people 100 lbs and up, add 2 cups or more to a standard bath.
~~~~~~
Next add in baking soda (half cup or little less)
Baking soda helps neutralize chemicals in water.
Needs to sit for few mins before letting kids get in.~~~~~~

Add in some essential oil. (only few drops)
We normally use lavender cause we do detox baths before bedtime but try different things like~
Eucalyptus~for sick kids
or
Peppermint~ for upset tummy

~~~~~~~

After everything is added let your kid soak and play.
I suggest not washing your kids hair in this bath.(Cause of the oil) and do not use any other soaps
Make sure plenty of water is handy to drink as these baths can make you thirsty.
We normally use a natural lotion after this bath, try not to use anything with lots of perfume.
We have also added in dried lavender, it was a nice touch.

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!
