Playing in the rain

Today we had fun outside in the rain, finding new adventures!
For my kids who love water this was a great thing. So we suited up, well son didn't want shoes. :p and off we went.

First thing we did was jump in muddy puddles! 
So much fun 

Next I took out their slide and let my kids discover the fun that waited. First they put the doll down to see how fast she could go and it wasn't long after that they each went down. 
After that my son went right to one of our water tables and noticed its filling. I gave them some soap and off they went playing, making bubbles. 

After that my kids wanted to explore all of the yard, so we went on a long walk. My son loved seeing the toads in the yard jumping. The grate is above is where they where going.

We even got to see foam from water rushing down our spouts. It was tempting to add some soap and see if it would get bigger but out of moving soon I let it be. 
So next time it rains get out there and have some fun!!!

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!
