Easy bath crayons

I always thought making bath crayons that worked where a lot of work and honestly I always skipped over trying. Well finally I tried this simple recipe my daughter actually found on a tv show. The crayons came out nice and worked!
So here it is~
First grate a bar of soap into a bowl, then mix some hot water and stir. (I used one bar of soap and little less then half cup of water)
Keep mixing till a dough forms.(this is when you add some food coloring, gel works amazing) No worries if your dough is not firm.
Once mixed place into molds. (we used a cookie tin but I would suggest maybe packing some play doh cutters...it would just be easier to take them out)
Then place in a freezer for few hours.
Ours  were in for about 3 hours and could have used another hour but my kids were to excited to wait.Once frozen take out and they are ready to use!
note~ ours did not stain but test your surface first if you are worried.

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!
