4th of July Recap-

There was some disappointment this evening as our fireworks were cancelled due to wind.  Not sure if they will be rescheduled or not.  I am thankful that we went and watched fireworks on Saturday and Sunday.  :)  

The day went well, we invited the youth group over for a BBQ and even though the event became an indoor event due to the extreme hot temps and humidity.  So glad we have a basement!!!  WHOO HOO

We did have one scare today!  I had to make my first poison control phone call.  I let the kids and youth group have some glow sticks and I must have gotten a bad pack because mine broke and then a little bit later my lil man's broke and it squirted him in his eye!!  Talk about freak out!!!  I felt terrible as I started running to the bathroom to find the water fountains since we were at a park.  He could not open his eyes.  I quickly flushed his eyes out and I'm sure my husband was praying as I was taking care of him.  After I flushed it I called poison control and they recommend flushing for a good 15 minutes so we left the park and I put lil man in the shower.  He seemed fine but that was scary!  

How did your 4th of July go??  I hope no phone calls like mine!

I had a big laugh when I looked back at last years 4th of July post.  Go look at my cute kids:  Happy 4th of July 2011!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
