Exploding Chalk Bag's

Your kids will be asking to do this again and again!  
Here is what you need:
Corn Starch
Food Coloring
paper towel
Baking Soda
Zip Lock Bags

I added vinegar and corn starch to the bag and dropped the food coloring in to get the desired color. I did not do any measuring just estimated.  Then I took a piece of paper towel and tore it to a smaller piece and added Baking Soda to the paper towel and wrapped it up.  The paper towel with Baking Soda is sort of like your ammo- it causes the reaction.  

Once outside I put the paper towel in the bag and zipped it closed and we watched the reaction take place.  Some of the bags took some time since I did not measure the baking soda.  

The pink bag took the longest to pop but it was quite a show to watch how huge the bag expanded. 

We did this activity a few weeks ago but my daughter has been asking to do it again. 

I also had it on old lumber and grass since I used food coloring and not a tempra paint.  I have fear of it staining the sidewalk.

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,
