Easy home made cat toy inspired by kids

With the new addition of two kittens came a expensive "need" list. Food, litter, litter boxes, vet bills, treats, and who could forget toys! Kittens thrive on toys and playing. Well that statement is for sure true with these two little kittens. They break and chew up toys more then my toddles ever did. So it was time to get creative with making them toys with the things around us. They where both found as strays so that inspired my daughter to think about what they would have seen and learned being outside. Off she went collecting feathers and sticks. She decided to add string and hang the feathers she found off of the stick. One thing to always be careful with is using clean feathers, don't want to get anyone sick! Also make sure there is no sharp points. Anyway it was a big hit! and yes after awhile it got destroyed like every other toy but it was free and can easily be recreated!

Welcome Mario & Mia!

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!
