52 Weeks of Outdoor Science Experiments

Image
I've always loved science and my youngest daughter wants to be a scientist when she finishes school. When asked if I wanted to join this fun blog tour for the new book Outdoor Science Lab for Kids: 52 Family-Friendly Experiments, I jumped at it!

This book conjures 52 family-friendly at home science experiments that range from the awesome to the "oh my gosh!" With Halloween fast approaching, these simple, inexpensive and fun experiments will have you running for their lab coats and crazy hair wigs!

These experiments can be done outside, keeping your inside clean and mess free! With 52 experiments you can do one a week with your kids or several each week during the summer. Lots of opportunities to have fun and experiment with this book.


I have a fun experiment for you to try out from the book Outdoor Science Lab for kids.



Mix up a batch of non-Newtonian fun.

Materials

•Medium-size bowl
•Spoon (optional)
•1 cup + 2 tablespoons (147 g) cornstarch

Saying Goodbye to Mean Streat (Cedar Point)

Image
The Mean Streak is one of my favorite wooden roller coasters. It was built in 1991 at Cedar Point and at the time it was the tallest wooden coaster in the world with the longest drop! This has been our go to ride the last few years since there is never a wait. My kids hate lines, they are totally of this generation and do not want to wait more then 15 minutes for a ride. I remember waiting hours for every ride, lol.

Anyways, we go on this ride all the time. I cannot even believe it gone now. I think my daughter and I, maybe a handful of other people were actually upset at the rides funeral. While the funeral was funny and made tons of jokes and Mean Streaks expanse which were funny, my daughter was not thrilled about it.

The funeral was Friday and we went back to Cedar Point on Sunday. It was really hard seeing the Mean Streak and not being able to go on it. We also were not able to ride it Friday, we got stuck at the gate check in process and missed getting in line by minutes. It wa…

Recital Time of Year - Some Cute Ballerina dolls for your ballerina

Image
I'm no longer a mom of 2 dancers anymore :( My oldest graduated last year, so this year it is just my freshman dancing. We have our recital this Saturday and no Nationals this year which is strange.  I think my popular post year round is Gift Ideas for Dance Recital, so decided to do a bit of an update on some of the newer ballerina things out there.

I came across these dolls which I'm dying over, they are so cute! They actually are what inspired this post. Now I don't own these {yet} but they have 4.3 out of 5 stars with 67 reviews, so I feel safe recommending them. All of these recommendations are just my opinion though, do your research.







The Ballerina Princess Doll Pack N Play Gift Setfor $15.95 at time of writing. You get (3) 10" dolls for this price in baby pink, dark pink and purple. They are so cute! I personally would recommend these more for decoration than play. They would look adorable on a shelf!

Here is a soft ballerina doll that is more for play, the 17…

Favorite Concealer: NYX Cosmetics Concealer Wand

Image
I love love love this NYX Cosmetics Concealer Wand in Porcelain. It has amazing coverage and it is only $4.99 plus cruelty free!

I originally discovered this concealer when looking for an affordable green concealer that had good reviews. I had purchased some mineral green powder on ebay before, but it always made a huge mess for me when trying to apply it while out. (otherwise I loved it).

I started subscribing to the Subscribe and Save for the Green concealer, which I still buy and use. Then one day, I was reading the reviews again for whatever reason and happened to see someones review on the porcelain. She was using it to cover red which is why I was using the green. I figured I'd give it a try and fell in love! This stuff is amazing and again only $5 or less! I just subscribed to the yellow to try that one out.

Plackers Dual Grip Fruit Smoothie Swirl Kids’ Flossers & Flosser Friend

Image
I was sent Plackers new Dual Grip Fruit Smoothie Swirl Kids’ Flossers, designed with a unique dual grip handle making them easy for kids of all ages to use and allowing parents to assist. This new angled head and dual grip allows a place to grip if your child is able to floss or for us parents to floss our little ones teeth for them. I personally have tried these and the floss is amazing quality. It is engineered not to shred, stretch or break and so far so good! I also have not experienced them getting stuck in teeth which is something that happens to me with most floss. These are also smaller in size than regular flossers which is perfect for your children's smaller mouth size. They are also bpa free!

Flossing regularly removes plaque and food from areas between the teeth that can’t be reached by brushing alone. “Dentists recommend as soon as a child has two teeth that are touching, parents should help them begin a daily flossing routine,” said Greg McCormick, Senior Vice Presi…

Review: Worth Dying For

Image
Worth Dying For by Rita Herron
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I listened to this with Kindle Unlimited. I enjoyed the first two books, but this one was just really bad. I felt like I kept missing a story line in the beginning. I didn't care for the two main characters this book focused on Liz and Rafe. I felt like they were extremely whiny and immature, also bad agents (not as in good vs bad, but in horrible at their jobs).

I have a hard time not finishing a book, so I suffered through it. I wanted to find out the continuation of Amelia's story as well. I pretty much had everything figured out, even though there was one surprising twist on who #6 was which gave the book the 2 stars.

The book had a ton of repetition, it could have been much shorter. I found myself constantly rolling my eyes and Liz and Rafe continuously thought the same things over and over and over. I read some of the bad reviews that talked about Liz's choices and I thought the reviewers were exagger…
