Water blob - Summer fun!

As you know I have 5 kiddos, so I am always looking for fun things to do with them especially during the summer! I was excited to be asked to participate in Design Dazzle’s Summer Camp this year as a camp counselor. Make sure you check out all the amazing ideas that were share this year. You can also link up to the Summer Camp link party if you have some fun ideas to share. :) I'm enjoying seeing all the awesome ideas that have been shared so far. :)   Today I'd love to share the fun activity that I shared a few weeks ago over at Design Dazzle. This is one that we have done several times over the years ~ making egg carton bugs!   I'm pretty sure I first saw this idea in a Family Fun book that I had when my oldest was around 2. (He is now 16! Yikes!) Anyways, we made these for his bug birthday party that summer, & they were a hit. :)     You'll need a few things to get started:   cardboard egg carton craft paint foam brushes school glue hole punch googly eyes pipe cleaners construction paper   *Tip: You can actually buy brand new egg cartons at a feed store (like Tractor Supply). I don't like to use used ones since my kids are always putting things in their mouths. Ewww!     You'll cut the egg carton in pieces. You can do all different combinations. One spot for spiders & ladybugs, 2 spots for ants & longer ones for caterpillars & worms.     Then let your kiddos paint their "bugs" however they want.     Then you can use a hole punch to make spots for the antennas & legs. (This is probably an adult's job!)     Then stick in your pipe cleaners. You can curl them with a pencil if you'd like to!     Then add some googly eyes!     We made a "home" for our bugs with the top of the egg carton. We painted it green, & then added some construction paper grass. :)     Meet our bugs! Aren't they cute??       Here are some more fun kid activities that you can find on my blog!     coffee filter butterflies     how to make a water blob     how to make giant bubbles     homemade play dough Thank you so much stopping by my blog!

Glowing Rainbow Water

Make glowing water WITHOUT highlighters! This new recipe from Growing A Jeweled Rose is a great alternative for #parents! Made from 100% kid safe materials with a #RAINBOW of waters to add to your #play! #kids #crafts #learning #summer http://studentloanslegalhelp.com/teachers/

Glowing RAINBOW Water you will need: Water & Fluorescent paint; Just add a few tablespoons of the fluorescent paint color of your choice into very warm or hot water and stir. Glow in the dark theme

GLOWING RAINBOW WATER Super easy! You will need safe nontoxic fluorescent paint (paint specially for children is even better!) and warm to hot water. The hotter the water the faster the paint dissolves and any clear container(plastic cups, bowls, bottles ect). You will also need a black light. Glow water is fun alone and can be used for so many other fun glow activities. 🚫DO NOT LET CHILDREN DRINK

We have been doing some experimenting this week and have come up with some NEW play recipes!  This next one I am most excited to share!  Many of you are familiar with the glowing water we shared last year.  While we love it I have always wished there was an alternative for parents who are uncomfortable using the highlighter water.  There have also been many play times we have tried with the highlighter water that have failed.  This NEW glow water recipe is a great alternative to using highlighters, and we have already come up with all sorts of ways to play with it that we couldn't with the other glow water recipe. Glowing RAINBOW Water GLOWING Water Without Highlighters! This glowing rainbow water is great for arts, crafts, creating play recipes, and for sensory play.  Back when we first played with glow water I had tried to experiment and create a rainbow of glowing water. However,  I was only able to create four colors.  Now we finally have a glowing rainbow of water to choose from and add to our play! To make Glowing RAINBOW Water you will need: Water Glow in the Dark or Fluorescent paint THAT'S IT!  The recipe couldn't be more simple.  Just add a little glow in the dark or fluorescent paint into very warm or hot water and stir well.  Use glow in the dark paint for glow water that glows in the dark.  Use fluorescent paint to make glow water that glows under blacklight.  Stir until the paint is completely mixed into the water.  The warmer the water the faster the paint turns to a liquid and mixes in. The fluorescent paint we use is designed for kids.  It is non toxic and meant to be explored and played with by children so it is 100% safe.  It is still not meant for ingesting so you don't want to let kids drink it, but this is definitely an alternative that many parents will feel more comfortable with than using highlighters. All of the glowing waters are super vibrant, too!  We have been playing with this glow water all week and have found all sorts of NEW ways to play with it!  We have been able to do things with this water that we couldn't do with the other glowing water.  We have even made GLOW IN THE DARK water by simply using glow in the dark paint instead of fluorescent paint.  Here are some of the fun ways we have found to play with this new glowing water: Glowing RAINBOW Slime Glowing RAINBOW Glue and Art Glowing RAINBOW Rice Glowing RAINBOW Eruptions Glowing RAINBOW Pasta Necklaces This glowing rainbow water also makes a FANTASTIC glowing water color paint! Glow in the Dark Water Colors Use fluorescent paints for UV reactive water.  Use glow in the dark paints for water colors paints that glow in the DARK!  Way too fun!

Magically Magnetic Homemade Slime

WOW, how cool! Magically Magnetic Homemade Slime will amaze the kids for hours.

Magnetic Slime! My recipe uses 20 Mule Team Borax and water rather than Sta-Flo (its the sodium tetraborate in both that cross-links with the PVA in the glue to make slime). I always spoon it out myself into the kids’ baggies full of glue which also curbs the mess. One bag is nearly a year old and is still good, although I sometimes need to add a bit of water.

We have shared this simple slime recipe many times, and it is still one of our go to recipes for play!  You only need two ingredients to make this slime & no borax! Borax Free Slime Recipe For all the best kids activities follow Growing a Jeweled Rose on Pinterest and Facebook. This recipe really could not be more simple.  You can add color and scent to the base slime or play with it as is; it is tons of fun any way you do it! Borax Free Slime Recipe (affiliate links provided) 2 bottles of school glue (8 oz) 1 cup of liquid starch Optional additions- food coloring, essential oils, or extracts (for scent and color)            You can use white glue, clear glue, or glitter glue.  This time we used clear glue.   Method combine the ingredients in a bowl and mix Once the slime is mixed let it sit for a few minutes before play.  This helps the slime to set & lose it's stickiness. That's it!  Couldn't be more simple, right?  You can add color or scent if desired.  You can also add alphabet letters to make alphabet SLIME!  Just follow the recipe above and add transparent letters.  You can also use the alphabet slime recipe we first shared which uses borax. Alphabet Slime This time we wanted to make regular transparent slime.  We have some fun ideas using this slime; be sure to connect with us on Pinterest and Facebook so you don't miss them! A Few Tips:  Liquid starch can be found in the laundry aisle of most stores or online here.  We make slime a lot and save money by buying our glue in bulk.  When the kids are finished playing store the slime in an air tight container; it will last for several months.

Have the children place the soap cube for the first color in a glass measuring cup and melt in microwave in short bursts. Once melted, have the children add soap color a drop at a time, mixing well after each drop until you get the color right. Then, add a couple of drops of essential oils and mix well. Next, have the children carefully pour the color soap into ice cube trays. If you see any air bubbles on the surface of the soap, spray it with rubbing alcohol. Have the children repeat the same soap crayon making process with the rest of the colors.

Have the children repeat the same soap crayon making process with the rest of the colors. After that, allow the soap to set until it is firm. This could take anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours. When the soap is close to firm, feel free to place the soap in the freezer to speed up the hardening process. When ready, have the children pop the soap crayons out of the trays. Then, it’s time to color in the tub!

Homemade bath crayons

homemade bath crayons "Buy some glycerin soap at a craft store. Melt it in the microwave, add food coloring, and pour into a mold. I used an ice cube tray. You can also add essential oils if you go for scents, though I find that a bit unnecessary for bath crayons. Takes about an hour to cool completely, then pop out of the mold and you have crayons!"

Getting Crafty: Homemade Bath Crayons (and other easy toddler crafts)

Kids #Crafts - like homemade bath crayons

Okay, so I have been on an insane craft kick today. And I'm blaming it all on Pinterest. I have become slightly addicted to Pinterest lately and have gotten a lot of ideas and inspiration for kid's activities from the other pinners. Top that off with a trip to Michael's this morning to stock up on craft supplies and we have craft addiction. Sometimes I think I enjoy having a toddler more than my son enjoys being a toddler... So, here's a sampling: A puzzle made with popsicle sticks and a recycled holiday card: Simply glue a photo onto some popsicle sticks, wait for it to dry, then use a craft knife or razor blade to cut. Homemade bath crayons: Buy some glycerin soap at a craft store. Melt it in the microwave, add food coloring, and pour into a mold. I used an ice cube tray. You can also add essential oils if you go for scents, though I find that a bit unnecessary for bath crayons. Takes about an hour to cool completely, then pop out of the mold and you have crayons! Color activity: Swing by your local home improvement store and pick up some paint swatches. Cut them into strips and glue some pieces onto clothespins. Easy and CHEAP! And a pom-poms in a bucket activity: So easy: use an old plastic container (mine is a yogurt container). Cut holes in the top that are just smaller than the pom-poms. Your little one will get lots of fine-motor-skills practice pushing the pom-poms through the holes! And the Eskimo literally had a meltdown when I took this away from him for nap time.  What's that? You want to do all of these too? By all means! HAVE FUN!! Also, if you're not already on Pinterest, you should be. :)
