Halloween night safety tips

Halloween is a fun time of the year for kids, lets remember to be safe with these tips!

~Halloween starts by getting the right size costume. Too big could make a kid trip and fall and too small will restrict movement.
~Mask can block eye sight, mask free is the best way to go but if your child chooses a mask costume make sure the eye holes are big enough to see clearly out of.
~Try to stay away from dark costumes, or add reflective tape. (even a car going slow can kill a kid if hit)(We like to go all out with glow sticks, kids love them)
~Test all make up on skin before the night of Halloween. This way you will know if it irritates skin ahead of time.
~Remind kids to not eat any candy till it has been checked over.
~Do not let little kids go alone. (You would think that was be common sense but I was surprised to see how many were just let to go by themselves last year)
~Stick to side walks or paths
~Remind kids to never go into someones house.
~Skip over any dark houses.(no lights means no candy)
~Decided a trick or treat route ahead of time.
~Watch for cars backing out of driveways.
~When crossing streets..stop, listen, look both ways..make eye contact with drivers before crossing so you know for sure they see you.

Take a extra step, make sure any Halloween costume you use is flame retardant.

Stay safe!& Happy Halloween from my family to yours!

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!
