Homemade Lemonade

Nothing better on a hot day then homemade lemonade. It is such a easy drink to make and can easily be sold at kids lemon aid stands. For this recipe you will need either 6 large lemons or about a dozen small ones. We used the small ones just because that is what we found. First thing is to squeeze all the juice out of each cut lemon. We do have a hand juicer, you know the ones to place the lemon on and press down but that proved to be a little hard for little hands so we moved on to just squeezing them into a bowl. After you have all  the juice fill a pitcher up with 2 quarts of cold water. Add the lemon juice and mix in 1 cup of sugar. Let it chill in the fridge until you want to use it and pour over ice.
This was great on a hot day to enjoy and my kids loved that they hand made it. Just be careful of the lemon juice, my daughter did manage to get it into her eye. Always wash hands before and after dealing with food/drink. ENJOY!

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…

Cookie cutter pumpkin...fail?we 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 up...like 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 anyone..skin 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 easy..you have to hit these with force and that's not any force my 5 year old had...I couldn't imagine him trying wi…
