Science Crafts: Glowing Flowers

I think that doing science projects with your little ones is one of the best ways to spend an afternoon and now that its back to school time, this could help them to get warmed up.

You remember that experiment in school when you would die your flowers colors by placing them in water that had food color in it? Well this is a really awesome twist on that project!


They glow!! This is such a cool science experiment and it uses things that you likely already have around the house. You can't get better than that! Find the tutorial at Fun at Home with the Kids!

Science Crafts: Homemade Silly Putty

I'm a 90's kid. As such, green slime was a big part of my childhood! Nickelodeon, anyone? I remember always wanting to get slimed after I won a game show on Nickelodeon. Sadly, that dream never came true but now that I have a son, we can create our own green slime!! I'm so excited!

**Just make sure to supervise your little ones because this recipe is not for consumption!**


To get the recipe for this ooey-gooey, sticky-icky slime, head on over to Our Best Bites!

Back to School: Duct Tape Notebook Pocket

Now that I'm out of school (and have been for a while), I use notebooks for things like coupons and I need little pockets and hiding spots in my notebooks. It was similar when I was in school. Teachers gave me notes and papers to take home to my parents and I would just stuff them in my backpack.


This craft helps to eliminate the clutter. Dream a Little Bigger has a wonderful tutorial on how to create Duct Tape Pockets for your notebooks so you can actually monitor the papers that your kid brings home from school! Click here for the tutorial.

Back to School: DIY Flower Pens!

When I started at a new school (or even if it was just the beginning of the school year), I wanted to have the cutest outfit, backpack, and accessories because it made me feel good! It made me enjoy my school work a little more. I wish I had made some of these cute flower pens for my chemistry class - maybe they would have helped me pay attention a little better! 


If you think your kiddo could benefit from a little bit of extra motivation in the form of cute flower pens, head over to Slices of Samantha for the tutorial!
