Messy Water Balloon's

We all know how much fun our kids can have with a water balloon fight...oh OK us adults too!  :)  Right?  :) Admit it!!  

Well, how about messy water balloons?  

I used cornstarch, water, and food coloring to create a colorful experience with water balloons for my kids. 

First mix water and cornstarch together.  Make sure you do not create oobleck, when it becomes a liquid and a solid mixture.  Once you get the consistency you want put the mixture in separate bowls so you can make different colors. I added a lot of food coloring in so the colors would be bright.  Then I used a turkey baster adding the color mixture to the balloon.  After that I still added more water to the balloon so they would pop easier.  :) 

The reason we added cornstarch is to ensure the food coloring does not stain the sidewalks.  :)  Then it becomes more chalk like when it dries.  Clean up is super easy...wait for the rain or get the hose.  We also made it a race to see who could get the most balloon pieces to clean those up.  

My children enjoyed throwing, sitting, stomping, rolling, and tossing the balloons back and forth.  It was always exciting to see what color came out when the balloon popped.  

I am willing to bet that my daughter will be asking to do this activity again!  :) :) My daughter wanted more balloons after she popped all of these but she will have to wait till next time.  

Here are a few more action shots:

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
