DIY Bath Bombs

When I first heard of bath bombs, I thought “hmm… just another spa product”. I wasn’t impressed and I veered away from the craze to spare my wallet. However, the more they kept showing up in my social media feeds, the more interested I became. As I researched bath bombs, I found that not only were they super cool, but they were actually really good for your skin depending on the ingredients that you chose to use or where you bought them from. Most of my DIY projects revolve around my kids so naturally I searched for DIY bath bombs with a little pizzaz to wow the kiddos. After searching for multiple recipes and trying 3, I found one that we really liked and worked well.

Homemade Edible Finger Paint

Homemade Edible Finger Pain

How to make a really simple homemade edible finger paint

My boys absolutely love to paint! When Little D was a baby, I remember cooking this elaborate recipe for DIY homemade edible finger paint almost three years ago. The recipe called for more than 5 items and I had to wait about 30 minutes for it to cook. Then I waited another 30 minutes to let stand so that it could thicken. P.s. It wasn’t as edible (or tasty) as I thought it would be. But I went with it because I knew he would put it straight in his mouth and the new mommy in me wouldn’t dare let him stick something like real paint in his mouth! So, I made the recipe, and let him have at it. He really enjoyed it, and the first thing he did was stick the paint to his mouth, yup. I was a proud first time mommy. I even went to Michael’s and bought canvas for him to paint on.

Valentine Crafts for Kids: 14 Reasons Why I Love You

Valentine’s Day is literally tomorrow, yikes! 2017 is really going by fast. I almost forgot about our awesome project for this month!

I’ve put together a quick DIY Valentine craft for kids that is really simple to do.

I knew I wanted to do something special this year. 14 reasons why I love you seemed to have the right idea to pull at some heart strings, especially when coming from a 4-year-old unfiltered. I played around with popsicle sticks, cards, and candy grams but I finally decided on a mini-book. And it turned out just perfect!

Make your own DIY Toddler Activity Board

I’m super excited to finally share this DIY Toddler Activity Board with you all. It was really fun learning how to use power tools, especially my old but new-to-me jigsaw which were awesome hand-me-downs from my Dad. There was a huge learning curve because this was my first project using power tools, so figuring out what they did and how they worked took some time. It’s probably the longest I have ever spent on a project. I plan to make two more for my nieces and I’m hoping I’ll have them done just in time for Christmas. Today on the blog, I will show you how I put it all together. I will try to explain in as much detail so you can easily make your own in half the time it took me.

How to make awesome and fun paint-filled water balloons

My kids absolutely love the outdoors. As soon as they hear a door open, they run to try to go outside. I would say we spend a good one to two hours outside in the mornings. It’s almost routine. We wake up, eat breakfast, put on our scandals and go outside. When we are outside, we turn on the water hose, fill the ice chest, place an assortment of items in and out of it (trucks, rocks, balls, and toys), then dump it out, attach the hose to the sprinkler, run around, then come inside. E-ver-y morning. They love it! But I get bored. Teaching about which items have more mass and determining which items will sink or float only holds the attention span of a three-year-old so long. I needed something fun, something that would spark spontaneity.
