cooking with kids~ Edible Shopkins

You can do this with any shopkin but kooky cookie is favorite in this house. To make a edible Shopkin you will need~
Rice krispies treats 
gel icing(the tubes you use for writing on cakes)
icing (the kind you use to cover cakes, we used vanilla flavored)
cornstarch (corn flour in the UK) 
food coloring

Step 1 ~ shape some rice krispies into the shape of the shopkin you choose, then let it sit in the fridge as you do step 2. We did the shoes last.(step 5)  
Step 2~ In a bowl mix vanilla icing with cornstarch till you get a soft dough(don't be scared to add more of each if needed), now this is when you add in the food coloring. We used brown and mixed it with white to try to get our cookie color. We also wet our hands and found out the color mixes better when a little water is added. 
Step 3~ Cover the rice krispies with the icing dough.
Step 4~Now it is time to use the gel icing and make the face and dots. 
Step 5~ This is when we did the shoes. So we shaped the rice krispies and covered them in just colored icing so they would stick to the body better. 
Don't forget if you are making this Shopkin to cut out a bitten piece! 
Done~ and in the end it tasted amazing! 
note~ I wouldn't put it back in fridge when done it will become too hard to cut

Big giant slime ball!!

This was such a fun activity! All you need is two boxes of slime baff and a wubble ball. We got the super wobble ball. So to make this epic slime ball use the tube it came with and place it in the ball as directed on the instructions. Next pour in all the slime baff. After that grab a hose and hold it in the tube. At first we did not let it get that big, too scared of it popping.  The kids including neighbor kids loved it. We played kid bowling and let this roll down the driveway. The kids thought it was the best thing ever to see this ball bend around them with out breaking. (will attach videos at the end) 
If you look close you can see the slime forming. You can barely tell it started as a blue ball. 
After awhiel of play we decided to make it bigger. We attached the tube and hose again and let it grow till the kids said stop.  Below is how big it got moments before popping.  This had to weigh a lot. Once the ball popped all the kids had fun playing with the slime. Two actives in o…

Pokemon balls for pretend play

We have made a huge Pokemon ball before but with the new Pokemon game out we decided to size it down a little and make it hand held. We still used styrofoam balls and choose some different type of Pokemon balls to make. So even though none of my kids can actually play the new game that has become such a hit they can still join in, play with their friends and have fun. 

Cookie cutter tried it..our results

When I first seen this idea floating around I got really excited...people made it seem like it was a easy clean way for little kids to help with pumpkin carving. Well after buying a medium pumpkin questioned started to come how is a kid going to get a cookie cutter threw the hard skin of a pumpkin?...anyway here is what happened....
I took the pumpkin first to try this out...cleaned it and let it dry...Then I used one cutter and tried pushing it into the pumpkin...yep that wouldn't work for is way to hard...So then I got out a hammer and started banging on this ...sounds easy right? nope!
The cutter kept slipping from its first spot. So being a good mom I am I called out my 5year old to try this..gave him the hammer and guess what second hit, he missed...hit my finger though...dangerous, maybe?..Anyway even with the hammer this is not have to hit these with force and that's not any force my 5 year old had...I couldn't imagine him trying wi…
