cardboard washer and felt clothes

Personally I felt like first thing in the morning was a little to early to cut and paint but my kids did not! Seems like my daughter dreamed of this cause first thing after breakfast she asked me over and over..and over..for a box washer. Lucky we had a empty box sitting around (that in its self is rare) so I got to work taping up the box and painting it. I  tried to go off of our real washer, my thought was maybe then they will learn how to work our real washer and could start helping with wash but in reality our washer is so big that my 4'10" self needs to jump on it to get everything out so that might not be a possibility but we can try. Anyway after I got done with the washer I had a request for felt clothes. That is pretty simple. I just stack the felt in 2's or 3's and cut all shirts at once...all socks at once and so on. (just make sure to have good scissors)

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!
