Homemade SNOW!

For another fun activity we made snow!
 Using glitter, baking soda.
 And an entire can of shaving cream.
Another Pinterest success!  It's cold and your can certainly build a tiny little snowman.

Homemade Frozen silly slime. Sorta.

Keeping up with our Frozen theme this week I decided to let the girls make slime.
 First you add a bottle of clear glue.
 Then lots of sprinkles and food coloring.  Mix it together.
 Then add 1 tsp Borax dissolved in 1/2 cup water.  And it turns into goopy slime!
 It's actually very cool!
 Surprisingly enough the glitter and food coloring stay in the slime and not on your kids (or countertops).
And even though it drips and oozes it still doesn't make a mess.  Very cool indeed.

It's a cocoon!

Parsley has disappeared.
He's sleeping in his cocoon.
I have to admit I am impressed with how quickly he made it.  Now I can't wait for him to hatch.

Let's paint a snowman!

The kids are loving our Frozen week.
So last night I drew an Olaf template on some boxes.  Then I cut them out.  Now I'm letting the kids paint a snowman!

Another Frozen surprise: Elsa and Anna capes!

As much as Grace loved her Elsa dress and hair, what is an ice princess without a cape to twirl around?
 So last night in the wee hours, I made her a cape out of an old curtain sheer and some tulle flower trim that I found hiding in my sewing stash.
And of course, I couldn't make Elsa a cape without making Anna one too.  I realize that Anna's cape was not purple in Frozen but purple happens to be Faith's favorite color, so I took a little creative liberty and made it purple with a hoodie.  Now Faith can be Anna or Little Purple Riding Hood!

Parsley is building something.

Grace told me today that Parsley was building a chrysalis.
I was skeptical but sure enough it looks like he is!

A Frozen activity: Snowflakes

We're really into Frozen right now. 
 Even Benjamin.
 So today I let the kids make paper snowflakes.
 It's a wonderfully fun activity.
 And we all enjoyed it.
Now we just need to hang them up somewhere and turn this hot summer into a Frozen winter wonderland!
