Someone once said -

"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for the people who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Amen

Some Fun Crafts for the Little Ones

Good Morning all...
It is sunny here today but a little on the cooler side... :(  better than snow I guess..

 I thought these were so clever and cute..they are actually switch plates....easy to make..
see instructions here.

Look how easy and cleaver these little "bottle boats" are to make for any little one
you could even throw in your GI Joe's.... :) Also a good way to make use of those plastic bottles we all seem to accumulate...directions on "how tos" here...

Streamer Bed Curtains
I love this idea, any little girl would it on her bed. And its such an easy craft to 
do... see the easy to follow directions here...
All you need are streamers found at any party store and scissors and tape, now how simple is that? 
Here's an easy "Bubble Blower" using a plastic cup...too cute..see how here

I saw the coolest way to use plastic bottles over on "playfully learning's blog" and also over at "child central station blog," these are so simple and really look like a lot of fun..I want to try one, don't you????


A great way to make those LONG bubbles...lol...see all the details at "HowDoesShe?.com"

Of course there a lot of things around the house you can use like:
   Straws of all sizes, Open end of an empty plastic soda bottle (blowing through the thin end),                Fly swatters, Trash pan with open slats,  Small or large funnels

  • 1 part liquid dish soap
  • 2 parts water
For colored bubbles, add:
  • 1 part washable paint
Another recipe for homemade bubbles is as follows:
  • 1 cup dishwashing soap
  • 6 cups of water
  • 1 tablespoon of glycerin (makes stronger bubbles for bubble-blowing activities)
For colored bubbles, try adding a few drops of some food coloring.
