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!

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!
