Popcorn Art

I love to mix it up in our art time and add a whole new experience with some sensory fun.  Yesterday we sure had some fun popping popcorn but also shaking it in a bag with food coloring to dye it.  After we made several colors the kids made their art.  

Here is what you will need:
air popper
white popcorn
food coloring
zip-lock bags
construction paper

To allow your young kids a full sensory experience let them help add the popcorn and watch it pop.  My lil man sure had fun watching the popcorn popping.  My popcorn popper does make a lot of noise so be cautious for any of those little sensitive ears.  My Tman was smiling and pointing and ready to dig into the fun, I am pretty sure he dug in and ate a few pieces of popcorn.

After the popcorn is all popped you will need to take two cups of the popped popcorn and put it in the zip-lock back.  Then add two tablespoons of water and 5-7 drops of food coloring.  Zip the bag up and let the little ones shake it up till the popcorn is covered and repeat with each additional color desired.  This activity is fun for all ages!!  My toddler  and preschooler loved it!

I separated all the colors and then got the paper and glue out.  The kids got to pick and choose what ever color popcorn they wanted.

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,
