Painting with anything and everything

We felt like painting so we got creative.  We walked around the house and outside searching for things we could "paint" with.  

So here is the set up:
long paper rolled out
paint on a tray
squishy ball
guitar pick

First up was the squishy ball (her favorite).

Next a golf ball and I loved the dotted effect it gave.  

She loves getting messy!

Next, was painting with a leaf and she thought this was hard but after I showed her that less paint was better she liked it.  

Oh, the fun you can have with a straw.  She struggled blowing hard enough but she thought it was so funny cause she got paint all over her lips.  

Laughing because I told her she had blue lips. 

 Getting ready to help clean up the mess. 

Too late she is the mess!  She was due for a bath anyways and it was washable paint so it all came off in the wash. 

I saved the paper again and I think I am going to wrap her birthday present in it!  :)

The kids look like they are having a ball!

I am following from Wild Wednesday blog hop. Please follow back!!
We did this in the spring with leaves, dandelions, rocks, etc. I don't know if you guys have sweet gum trees up there, with those little spiky balls? But, if you get an old oatmeal container and tape a piece of paper on the inside, throw a couple of those spiky balls and a couple drops of paint in--then shake it, it makes really cool stationery-type paper. Jaycee loves getting messy too. We painted yesterday and she had the paint all on the bottom of her feet and up her legs. I was having a hard time with it, but it came right off in the sprinkler. Your daughter looks like she was having a great time!
ah, the sheer joy of getting messy and getting to use everything in sight to paint! :) FUN!

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,
