When Louisa said she wanted to have a unicorn themed party for her 5th birthday, I was ALL IN. I figured we’d do a few activities/ crafts, have a snack and then be done! Turns out, we plowed through FIVE projects, so I’m glad I was prepared!
I know there are 9 million YouTube videos of 10-year-olds making slime, but I just can’t figure it out. It’s either too stiff or too sticky or something. Which is my long winded way of saying, PLAY DOUGH IS MY JAM! This is the easiest play dough recipe ever. You can make 5 batches of playdough in under 20 minutes and under $5.
Folks. I’m not going to sugar coat this: we got lice. I’m going to give you the nitty gritty details (no pun…), but I will also START by saying, IT’S NOT THAT BAD! So settle in. Be ready for the phantom itching to start immediately, and… read how our family of seven got rid of lice easily and painlessly the first time around!
Road trips were part of my childhood and I remember loading up on penny candy, books-on-tape, and pencil and paper to keep track of all the license plates I saw… my kids aren’t quite there yet, so it takes a bit of planning to get them all organized and out the door for a 5-hour car ride! I follow the same steps every time we travel, and it makes our life SO much easier.
