Activities to do with the kiddos...

If you are like me you are ready for the warm air to come and the snow to disappear so we can head to the park, zoo, waterpark, pool!!!

Since winter seems to want to hang on I thought I would make a list of ideas that would help us mothers who need to get the kids doing something!

1. Play-doh or clay!  I love letting my daughter use her imagination but now that she is getting a bit older it is time to get more creative and have her making shapes or using a tool to write letters.

2. Finger paint!  If you child is still in the stage of putting things in their mouth make pudding or frosting and let them have a ball.  If your child is a bit older let them mix colors to see new colors made.  Again for the preschool and school aged you can have them practice letters  and shapes.

3.  Water Color painting!  For those that are just not ready for the messy clean up of finger painting.

4. Shaving Cream fun!  My 3 year old loves using shaving cream.  Again we have fun, make shapes, write letters. :)

5. Bubbles... yes bubbles can be done indoors if you don't mind.  Our Dollar Store has bubbles in a 3 pack each with a different scent so it can be fun making bubbles and smelling to guess the scent.

6. Worship... Dance... Singing PARY!  My daughter loves to do all 3!

7.  BOOKS!  Hit up the library or enjoy some books at home!

8.  BAKE!  There are tons of fun recipes out there to try with the kids.  Healthy, candy, cookies, any many holiday ideas too!

9. Clean up!  Yep, it is time to teach that we can have fun while we clean.

10. DRESS UP... because my little girl is a princess!  Maybe if your child is old enough and you approve put a little lip stick on them!  :)

11. Coloring or markers!  Grab the coloring book, or grab some paper and have them make a card for dad, grandma, grandpa, or any other important person in their life.

12. Bubble bath and bath toys!  My daughter would spend hours in the tub if I let her.  There are also fun bath crayons and ink things you can purchase at many stores.

13. Candy Land, Hungry Hippos, Chutes and Ladders... ETC ETC!  Pick a game and have fun!

14.  Create a puppet show!  My daughter was scared of puppets for awhile but now I think she would have fun playing together as we act out a familiar scene.

15. Paint nails!!  My daughter's favorite thing! :)

16. Build a fort!  Last week we built a special fort and every day since my daughter has been asking to do it again.  She was crying when we took it apart.

17. Go to the Mall play area

18. Practice AWANA verses or any other Bible verses!  :)  GOOD PRACTICE FOR MOM AND DAD TOO!

19. Pick out a movie... I try not to do this too much. Our Family video does free kid rentals... and the library is a good place for free movies too.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
