Hey yall! How was the weekend? After no school last week (well, only one day of school actually)…I think everyone was ready to get back in the routine. It sure was fun to be a bit lazy for a few days though. If you are snowed in right now…or maybe just want to jump start the little ones Valentines for this year—I thought I would share a very easy one. I put a free printable on here too…all you have to do is right click on it to save it and print out as many as you need:)
Hi guys! Are you ready to get back into the swing of the routine? It always seems like Monday start so abruptly after New Years. Part of me really enjoys getting back into the daily routine of things and part of me really misses waking up without an alarm clock and having the kids hang out with me. We had such a good family time over the past couple of weeks… not as many places to be… lots of vegging out and watching movies… taking walks ….making cocoa. I hope that you had a nice extended holiday with your families. I was so excited last night too watch Downton Abbey! I still can’t believe that it is the last season for the series. I’m going to miss these characters so much!
Hey guys! Hope you had a wonderful fall weekend! Hubs and I celebrated all weekend long in Chicago….came home well rested and bags full of loot:) Wanted to share a fun Halloween craft today….have a great day!
Hershey’s and Halloween go hand in hand. When they asked me to come up with a fun little craft to do for Halloween I gladly agreed. This little countdown chain would be a fun weekend or classroom craft. I think the kiddos will have a great time making these….and enjoying them too!
Hey hey…happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend. It’s that time of year where we have a ton of extra candy in the house….send me some will power would you? My friends at Hershey’s sent a ginormous box of candy asking me to share with you a fun Halloween craft idea. Of course my kids think that I must realllllly be important now—since Hershey sent me candy…#ornot.
I love how colorful Easter eggs are these days. Back in my day it seems that all we had was pastels with the color kit that came at the grocery store. There are so many fun ways to decorate Easter eggs now, with paper Mache, different color food dyes, foam and paper, glitter, gold leaf and even nail polish… it really is a fun interactive craft to do with your kiddos! My friends at Bounty and Nickelodeon invited me to come up with a fun craft to do in the kitchen with your kids to celebrate the 2015 Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards. These Easter eggs would be a great project to do while you watch! There is a ton of other inspiring ideas out that will put your kids in the party mood. Search up #slimeon on your favorite social channel and be sure to tag @NickBreaks to show them what you have created!Head to @NickBreaks and enter #SlimeOnSweeps for a chance to win prizes thanks to @Bounty
You will just need a few household items to create these one of a kind eggs. I would caution: these are just for display….to create these bright marbled eggs we used nail polish. Even though it is just on the shell….I wouldn’t recommend eating these eggs. You could blow out the eggs first….we just hard boiled a dozen.
Gather your supplies:
green and orange nail polish
shallow plastic container
bounty paper towels
news paper or wax paper
fill container 1/4 of the way with room temp water
drop in a few dots of each nail polish
roll the egg until the sides are covered
place on wax paper to dry
you can use a toothpick to swirl the colors a bit but it dries quick…so you’ll need to be quick
for every egg you will need to re-drop nail polish in the water
Play with the colors and have fun with it! Rubber gloves and Bounty paper towels will make quick clean up too…so go ahead and get slimy!Get more slime content and tweet your own with #SlimeOn
Have a great time rooting on your favorite stars at this year’s Kids Choice Awards!
