Review on Magformers (cool toy for kids)

So for awhile I have debating on buying these for my kids. They are kind of expensive 
14pcs for $25
30pcs for $50
62pcs for $100
(toysrus prices)
Finally I gave in and got the cheapest one. After all who really would spend much more on a toy your kid/kids may not even like?

Anyway we brought it home and the next morning my kids were begging me to open these. 
Inside it came with a booklet, in the booklet is many different ideas for  building with them. For some ideas though you would need more Magformers. 

Guess that is were they get you. You'r kid sees these amazing ideas but you need way more then 14 to make them and they beg you for more lol


Anyway look how colorful they are! You could also get them in different colors. (pink and purple was another option) 

So after playing with them in our living room we headed to the bathroom(only room we can make dark) with our black light.
They looked amazing!  Most but the blue glowed bright.
They also look cool on top of a light box.

The age on the box says 6 and up but my 5 year old had no issues playing with these. (watched the whole time anyway)

They stick together with magnets and are not to strong or to weak for little hands to build with.
I highly recommend these for any kid! Very cool toy, just can be expensive~
Last note~ they do not come with a bag or storage to put them back in, so have a container ready. You don't want to loose them!

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…

Pokemon balls for pretend play

We have made a huge Pokemon ball before but with the new Pokemon game out we decided to size it down a little and make it hand held. We still used styrofoam balls and choose some different type of Pokemon balls to make. So even though none of my kids can actually play the new game that has become such a hit they can still join in, play with their friends and have fun. 

Cookie cutter pumpkin...fail?we 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 up...like 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 anyone..skin 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 easy..you have to hit these with force and that's not any force my 5 year old had...I couldn't imagine him trying wi…
