Toddler Art: Cotton Ball Ghosts

Toddlers can and do love art!  My 18 month old had a lot of fun playing with cotton balls.  Before we glued them on the paper we felt them, threw them, blew them, and stretched them out.  I wish I could understand all his gibberish as he did this.  I really want to know what he thought of all that fun.  :)  Exploring is sometimes the best part of art.  After exploring the fun cotton balls I put glue on a piece of paper and my son and his friend both had to make a ghost.  The personalities of these boys can be so similar yet so different.  My son was excited to do this activity while his friend lost interest quickly but the opposite happened when we did a different activity a week prior. Funny Boys! Maybe I can find an activity that they both will love!  

Supplies needed for this ghost:
cotton balls
paper cut out
black circles for eyes and mouth

I love this idea.
I hope you don't mind but I'm going to pin it to my autism pinterest board because of the circles and ease of this activity for my youngest son.

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,
