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.
If you aren’t following us over on our YouTube Channel you can hop over and click Subscribe!
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.

Sofia The First Snack + Craft Time

Today’s post is sponsored by Disney Junior!
My girls’ love for Sofia The First, inspired us to have a fun craft and snack time this week!
They made their own amulets and we created an easy treat that I’m sure Sofia would
serve at one of her own tea parties! Do you have little ones who love Sofia too? Then this post is for you!

Did you know that Disney Junior has all new episodes each “FriYAY” morning this
summer on the Disney Channel A new episode of Sofia The First is on June 30th and I know my girls can’t wait!
I remember when this show first came out and my Sophia loved that they had the
same name! (Different spelling of course, but to her that didn’t matter!)
Tune in to Disney Channel every Friday morning this summer to see new episodes
of your favorite Disney Junior shows!

Our craft time was really fun! This project couldn’t have been easier.
All it took was some modeling clay, jewels and yarn!

They haven’t taken off their necklaces since they finished making them. I love
offering the kids craft time where they can get creative and then it extends into play time.
They’ve been pretending to be Sofia and that their amulets let them talk to animals just like her. hehe.
We love pretend play around here!

The treats for our little Sofia inspired tea party were so yummy! And almost too
pretty to eat! All we needed to make the fruit tarts were some shortbread
tartlet shells, fresh fruit and vanilla pudding (You could also use whip cream!)

We put out a bowl of blueberries and some sugar cookies to make it feel like a real tea party spread!
The girls thought it was so fun. There’s some special about tiny little treats…always make it feel fancy!
