    Lava Lamps -Summer Fun- I found a fun, cheap, and easy project in Family Fun magazine about making Lava Lamps with things you already have in your house. You will need 3 empty water bottles ( I don't normally buy this kind of water, but they make pretty lava lamps with the lids on), food coloring, vegetable oil, and alka seltzer. Fill each bottle a little more than half with oil: Then fill the rest of the way with water.  Leave about an inch at the top: Now add 10 drops of food coloring:   Break your Alka Seltzer into 4 pieces: and drop them in one piece at a time.  Wait until the first piece stops bubbling before you drop in the next.  If too many go in, you solution gets all cloudy.  Don't worry, he's not hurt.  The band-aid is merely decorative...as is the tattoo.  Match those up with the black socks pulled to the knees he likes to wear, and I have got quite a little ladies man! and watch the magic happen... over...and over...and over again. We had so much fun with these.  If you have any other summer fun ideas, please post a link.  I would love more ideas!

I'm going to modify this & call it a red neck Chandelier for someone's camp! I'll try & put balled up Christmas lights so it can hang! Lol! This is cute!

1. take a huge balloon, lots of doilies, and some wallpaper glue 2. blow up the balloon, and paint the glue onto the doilies so that they're soaked. 3. tie the balloon on a string. make sure all of the doilies are overlapping so that they stick 4. put on an extra coat of glue and let it dry for at least 24 hours. pop the balloon and you're ready to go :)
