8 Fun NON- carving and NON-scary Pumpkin Ideas

Are you looking for a new idea for PUMPKINS??  Be sure to click on each title so you can read more about the post activity.  :)

1. Crayon Melted Pumpkins was a huge hit with the hubby especially when he took over with the heat gun since the hair dryer was taking a bit longer then expected.  

2. Painted Pumpkins is always an easy but fun task especially for those younger toddlers.  :) Take it outside for an even easier clean up. 

3. Ripped Paper Pumpkin Craft was super easy to get ready yet fun for those little hands because they got to rip.  Ripping is also a great fine motor skill to work on.  

allow endless possibilities for fun.  My daughters favorite series is Pinkalicous so look at our Pink pumpkin.  We had a white pumpkin so the pink popped out beautifully!  :)

5. Sand shaker pumpkins was an activity we did in town at the art museum.  My daughter loved using the contact paper for this activity.  I think I need to find more activities with contact paper.  

6. Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head Pumpkins looked so adorable sitting on our front porch swing.

7. Pipe cleaner pumpkins work best when you use a skewer to poke the holes.  Young kids can still do this with your supervision of the skewer.  My 5 year old loved it!    

8. Yarn wrapped pumpkins was something I wanted to do so I honestly did it without the kids.  My son was napping and my daughter was at school and I felt like having some pumpkin fun.  :)  

Pumpkins are a great fall activity and it sure is nice to have many options for decorating them then just traditional carving.

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,
