Spring Break Fun

Our Spring Break is in full swing…gotta make some plans for the kiddies to have some fun!  We may have a little rain this week, so we need both indoor & outdoor activities.  I really want to try these SUPER GIANT BUBBLES…there is even a tutorial for the giant bubble wand!

Another little project that I think my kids will really have fun with…homemade flubber.  Ideally we will do this outside, but it could be an inside project if we have to.  We’ve made plenty of homemade play dough, with great success…but this will change it up a bit.  I love the shiny texture…I may even try a batch with the glitter glue (maybe). 

I am definitely going to keep them away from any carpets or rugs…we got play dough in the carpet at our last house…not a fun clean up process, to get it out I had to hire a pro :(.

Another fun item I want to try is this jelly fish in a jar (or plastic bottle).  It looks easy enough.  I have this on my “Ideas for Kids” pinboard…but I am going to warn you now, once when I accessed this I got a disturbing pop-up of the pornographic variety, so I will not be adding the permalink to this tutorial.  When the kids and I try this, I will take pics of each step and do my own tutorial.  I did not report this pin, because I have accessed it since that incidence without any popups, but I just wanted to warn everyone of my experience.  How cool do these look?!?!

I also have a big park trip and a mini-golf outing planned…not to mention planting the garden.  I would love to hear about your Spring Break plans…whatcha’ got?

Today’s secret revealed…am I the only one that worries about how my kids will look back on their childhood?  I stress a little about if I am making happy memories…or will they only remember me yelling “STOP!” or “WHO MADE THIS MESS?” or “UP, DOWN, or OUTSIDE!”.  Surely they will remember the fun stuff, too…right?  I mean, I remember the fun stuff…not the punishments (except that time I was grounded for 3 months…but that was on me, not Mom)…and of course I remember Momma’s cooking…YUM!

  1. I worry about that stuff all the time. It’s usually after I’ve punished them for something and I’m thinking, “Man, they probably think I’m a mean Mom…I don’t wanna be a mean Mom.” They forget about their punishments faster than I do, it seems. LOL They will remember all the fun stuff. They even seem to remember the little things they love doing like helping Windex the TV screen! haha
