DIY-Bubble Snakes

This is going to be a favorite outside activity for my kids.  My daughter had so much fun blowing the bubbles while my 16 month old son had fun playing with the bubbles.  

Here is what you will need:
a plastic bottle
dish soap
Food coloring (optional) 
old sock
Tape or rubber band

How to make:
1. Cut bottom of plastic bottle
2. place sock over opening you cut
3. tape sock onto bottle 
4. mix soap and water in a dish 
5. dip sock in soapy water and blow
6. You can add some color by putting a couple drops right on the sock.  (can get messy)

We had purchased that juice for kids (Hog Juice or something) that has a sports bottle top.  It was shorter and the top has the cap that opens and closes and I think made it easier for a small mouth to blow but safer so they are less likely to swallow soapy water.  My 16 month old did try but he is a bit to young to understand blowing out and did end up sucking in and resulted in a mouthful of soapy water.  After that he had more fun playing in the bubbles.  

When we did use some food coloring it showed up real nice for the first few blows but faded fast so you might have to continue to add drops to keep the colors coming.

Another fun idea is to have a contest to see who can make the longest snake!  :)   

**Parents you too will have fun... I did!!  I also know my husband thinks these are super cool.  He came home from work and said "bubble blowers cool, where did you get those?" Then he thought it was even cooler when he noticed they were homemade!  :) 

Also, this was another Pintrest find!  A big shout out to Housing a Forest for posting this and pinning this for others to see!  :)

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!  

Harlem Globetrotters- A night of Fun! Save 20%

  If you only came here for the discount code then there ya go!  Save 20% at checkout with the code: USFAM!   I will admit that prices seem very costly in my opinion so hopefully this 20% off will really help you.   I was blessed to be able to promote this discount and post about my experience to get free tickets for my family.   I am not sure our budget would be able to afford the tickets... family of four and ticket prices we got were over a $100 each ticket... so it can make for a pricey night.   Then add in if you get snacks, a ball, or a jersey you could spend a hefty paycheck in one evening of fun.    With that said, my family did have a good time.   We saw good talent, we had lots of laughs, we cheered, and we enjoyed watching with each other.   Some would say the Harlem Globetrotters are like the equivalent of WWE but with basketball.   There is a storyline within the game, which helps get the crowd going and cheering.   My 11 year old had the most fun!   He was standing up and
