Halloween’s over, but we’re still gaga over Zoë’s costume this year.

This year, she wanted to be a claw machine. The truth? It was another project this DIY-loving momma took on with excitement.

Easy Peasy Homemade Play Dough

Easy Peasy Homemade Play Dough Recipe

Last week my six-year old came home from a friend’s party with some Play-Doh loot. I normally tolerate the mess she makes when playing with Play-Doh, but the tub came in the brightest color of blue ever and it left huge blue stains everywhere. I ended up watching her every move, wiping and scrubbing dough residue and stains wherever she went. It was no fun at all, but in as much as I want to ban all play dough at home to save my sanity, I know denying and restricting her from any play dough fun is simply not the answer. Nobody wants be labelled “Mommy the Party Pooper,” right? So the other day, we whipped up some homemade play dough.

The recipe is super quick to make, using everyday ingredients found in the kitchen. I used to make them when Zoë was a toddler, and I loved that it was an edible, non-toxic and cheaper alternative to store-bought dough. The best part? It doesn’t leave nasty stains, making way for some endless fun!

Read on to see how quick it is to make this Easy Peasy Homemade Play Dough!

Mess-Free Glitter Slime

Mess-Free Glitter Slime

Oh Slime! That sticky, gooey, and stretchy fun stuff. It’s all the rage with kids these days. It’s all over social media, and every other kid has probably tried making their own, at least once. We’ve tried several recipes ourselves. Most with simple ingredients that can be found around the house, and all pretty easy to make. They all made slime, but every one included a pretty messy process.  While the recipe with the household cleaner Borax seems to be the more popular one out there, we’ve stayed away from using it due to safety concerns.

Zoë has been bugging me to let her make more slime for weeks. I’ve been giving her silly excuses and putting it off, because in reality, this momma just can’t deal with all the sticky mess. The last one we made left me cleaning up slimy residue for a while, and worse, it left some food coloring stains on some of her clothes, too! Which is why I was ecstatic to find this new recipe. No Borax, no detergent, no shaving cream, and no food coloring, this 3-ingredient slime recipe is not only easy to make, it’s also a mess-free and safer alternative for kids! And the absolute best part? It’s sparkly and glittery, too. Perfect for my glitter-lovin’ princess!
