Fruity Pebbles Popsicles!

After doing some work in the children's garden this morning, a cold and sweet treat sounded phenomenal! Unfortunately, I did not plan ahead for such things. Shenanigans!

This is a pretty easy and equally quick treat to make with the kiddos today or any time this summer! Here's the link with instructions: http://www.wearenotmartha.com/2012/08/fruity-pebbles-greek-yogurt-popsicles/.

There are plenty of these recipes on the internet (Pinterest, so it seems) and if your child is allergic to the coloring in Fruity Pebbles, here is a safer and maybe yummier version: http://www.caramelpotatoes.com/2013/07/12/breakfast-popsicles/. It is essentially the same recipe, only they used actual fruit instead of fruity pebbles. Enjoy!

Moon Sand!

Since it seems like the weather is finally deciding to stay warmer, now is a good time to explore creating messy crafts outside again!

Why not try making Moon Sand with the kids? On all accounts, it feels like real sand, but is a bit easier to clean up. Plus, it is more cost effective than sandbox sand!

My inner child still loves playing in the dirt, even if it is fake dirt!

Aquatic I Spy Jars!

Get outside and play because today's craft is going to be under water themed!

Here is the link with full instructions and inspiration: http://adventure-in-a-box.com/underwater-i-spy-jars/.

I am personally a huge fan of crafts that are meant to be played with, so this was a very quick and easy decision for me. Enjoy!

Enjoy!

Popsicle Stick Airplanes!

Today I am posting a Popsicle stick airplane craft to make up for the lack of craft posting this past weekend!

There are tons of Popsicle stick airplane crafts that involve already colored sticks, but today's posting is based off of this website: http://kidschaos.com/lolly-stick-bi-planes/.

Have fun and enjoy!
