self recognition craft

Hate to admit but recently my son has been having trouble realizing there is always a consequences to what he says and does. He has entered the stage of "it is not my fault" even though it is and the "she did it so I did too". :/ 
So today I took him outside one on one and we traced his feet and hands and I asked him to fill in the rest. (head,face,hair,arms,legs, and anything else he knows he has or has on pants and t-shirt) We then wrote down who controls his hands, feet, what he says and how he reacts to things. For a hyper kid he actually did really well listening as he finished up drawling himself. 
Before we went in he helped me write I control what  I say and do under his picture and we went threw what is a nice thing to say/do and what is a big no.
Even if your child is not going threw this it is still a very neat activity to see how a child looks at him/her self. My son made sure not to forget the small details, scratch on his foot and even the color of his it was interesting to watch

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!
