Chocolate covered (heart shape) strawberries and marshmallows

Need~
Strawberries
Marshmallows 
sprinkles
chocolate chips
sticks
tooth picks
plastic knife

To make the strawberries heart shape we cut them in half then placed them next to each other and cut any extra off to make the heart shape. Stick a tooth pick in them when done and keep it in till they are covered in chocolate and cooled. We used sticks for the marshmallows to make them more of a handheld treat for little ones.(helped keep them clean)
So once you have the strawberries cut and the sticks place in the marshmallows it is time to melt the chocolate. This is how we did it~ Place chocolate chips in a medium pot over low/medium heat. Keep mixing till melted. Make sure to keep mixing so it does not burn. Once all is melted then dip marshmallows and strawberries. I dipped and my daughter decorated them with sprinkles once done. Do not let them cool first or the sprinkles will not stick. After all are decorated we place every thing in the fridge for a hour so the chocolate harden and it was ready to eat! 
Enjoy!~ :)

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!
