Apple cinnamon soft dough

So what we planned on doing today was make apple cinnamon oobleck but as we mixed water and dough started to form we changed our minds. This dough smelled so nice and was very soft that we decided to play with it how it was. To make it we used one cup of apple sauce, cornstarch (corn flour in the UK) and water. We first mixed the apple sauce with cornstarch then added little bit of water at a time till the dough formed. (did not take much) I threw in some cinnamon sticks to top it off before playing. 
My daughter loved to make different things like alien, hedgehog, and even different food.
I admit I even got in on this play time. When done you can add more water to make the oobleck but we decided to keep it for play little later on. (not sure if it will last past another day but we will see.) 



My daughter loved to talk about how rough it was when let to sit but how smooth it could be if you rolled it into a ball. 


It does crumble but can go right back into sticking to its self.

Have a good day and thank for reading!~

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!
