VLOG: The Kids’ Pretend Play Kitchen & Market

By far one of our favorite DIY projects has been the Pretend Play Kitchen and Market Ben and I built the kids!
We already did a whole blog post on the how-to with photos and a tutorial.
But after sharing some small clips of this space in other youtube videos… we’ve been asked to share more!
So here’s a video of the fun corner of our house in action!
I absolutely love how it’s big enough for all four kids to get in there and
use their imaginations and whip up some yummy play food.
The flower container is now used regularly when someone is going to “perform” for us…
A child always passes them out and we are all supposed to throw them after he or she finishes singing. ;)
I hope you enjoy our video below. Comment if you spot Asher cheesing
at the camera while the kids play. He’s such a goof. hehe.
You can see the full blog post on our DIY Kitchen and Market HERE!
I list all the sources and details so be sure to check it out.

The EASIEST Slime Recipe!

My kids have been asking to make slime and I kept putting it off thinking it would be one hot mess…
BUT you guys! It was way easier than I thought!!!
So here is the recipe we used that the kids LOVED and so did I… because it was EASY.

The kids REALLY wanted to film this video and share it with you guys.
I mean…. SO EXCITED about the video. haha.

The next video they wanted to share with you guys is all about their baby dolls and how they make their own baby food. ;)
The kids are baby alive obsessed over here! Which is good…
because they are getting a real baby alive in November. haha.
We hope you enjoy! 

All you need are three ingredients!
We already had the baking soda and the contact lens solution.
I ran into Michael’s and got three glitter glues.
 (6 ounce container for each kid) I wanted everyone to be able to do it themselves and it reduce the crazy.
I know you can get big tubs of glue for cheaper…
but I liked the idea of no fighting over glue and no extra measuring cups getting dirty.

Elmer’s Glitter Slime
1/2 TBSP of Baking Soda
1½ TBSP of Contact lens solution
6 fl oz Elmer’s Glitter Glue
1. Find a bowl, cup, or plate to mix your slime in
2. Pour out the entire contents of a 6 oz of Elmer’s Glitter Glue into the bowl.
3. Add ½ TBSP of baking soda and mix
4. Add 1 TBSP of contact lens solution
5. Mix until slime forms and it begins to get harder to mix 6.
Take the slime out and begin kneading with both of your hands
7. If needed, add ¼ TBSP contact lens solution to make the slime less sticky.

Our Usborne Books: Two new videos!

I have loved opening up the world of reading to my kids through our Usborne Books!
AND sharing them with you guys! Every time I share something either
on Instagram or on the blog I get asked A LOT of questions…
like how do you earn free books??  How do you join??
What are your favorite books?
I LOVE all of the inquiries and it makes my heart happy that we all want to raise readers!
Sharing the books comes naturally for us and it has been such a great fit for our family…
It’s even better that you guys seem to love them too!
I made a goal this week to create two videos on topics that I thought would be helpful for those interested.
One is all about why you NEED these books and why we love them.
The second video is sharing about my story of being an Usborne Books & More Consultant.
Keep scrolling to see the two new videos or CLICK HERE to see my updated Info page!

Here’s just some of the fun we’ve had with our books!
They’ve inspired a lot of family activities….and tasty treats. ;)
Do you have a book you love and want to see some crafts and snacks themed with it??
We are always up for a challenge. ;)

Another goal I had this week was to work with the Leaders on our team
to create a Book Lady Training Course for our new girls! (Similar to my Blogging E-Course)
I’m SO excited to be able to offer this resource to our new team members and help them dive right in.
One of the best parts of being on this team is that not only do we get to earn a weekly paycheck and free books and TRIPS…
But we have the opportunity to bring other women a long with us to reach their goals.
Here’s the video on my own story as a Consultant.
