Under The Sea Graham Cracker

 

My boy has so much fun making these! I found this on Pinterest and thought it would be cute and fun to make. I actually had most of the supplies, so that made it so much easier. Of course, when you find things on Pinterest nothing ever looks like the picture, but we still had a blast making them. It was a great project for a rainy day and as a bonus, they were able to eat it. That was their favorite part!

This is what we had:

Enjoying the goods!

 

 

Home Made Bubbles

I’ve been looking around for more non-candy ideas to put in my boy’s Easter basket! Here is another awesome idea that they would love and use every day, homemade bubbles. Not only will I use this for Easter but probably once a week, my boys love playing with bubbles. Charlie likes to see how many bubbles he can make come out at once, and he likes to catch two bubbles and make the connect.

Simple Homemade Bubble Solution:

  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of dish soap

Simply mix the ingredients together until the sugar is totally dissolved.  Then, after done playing, store in an air-tight container.

The next recipe requires an ingredient that is a bit more “rare”, but the bubbles from this solution are a bit better, but, like I said, they weren’t terrible with the first recipe.

Little Less Simple Homemade Bubble Solution

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 Tablespoons dish soap or laundry soap
  • 1 Tablespoon Glycerin
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

Once again, simply mix the ingredients together until all of the sugar is completely dissolved.  Then, once you are done using it, store it in an air-tight container.
