Reusable bubbles + tips

After seeing this done over and over by many different people I knew we would have to give it a try but after many fail attempts we backed off for awhile. Then while waiting for my daughter to get out of school I tried again and success! What I found out is that many people left out some important info. Here is what we did~
The mixer is really a  kind of slime mixture we have made many times before. One bottle of glue mixed with food coloring of our choice and then slowly add in liquid starch. Here is the first important tip...add in over the amount to make slime..you want our slime to break when pulled apart..We added about one cup. Once mixed take out of cup and leave on a plate for few hours. We switched the plates out after the liquid starch puddled on the plate and mixed the "slime" each time. 
When our "slime" is no longer wet it is time to blow bubbles! Here is the next important thing~ only take a little bit of the "slime" at one time and work it in our hands till soft. Now wrap it around a straw and hold so no air escapes. This makes it easier. Bubbles will easily form but make sure to blow slowly as holes can easily happen. 
These bubbles are so fun to play with and worth the work! 
We placed our mix in a air tight bin and so far it has been a week and still working fine.

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!
