Happy 4th of July! Â This is one of my favorite holidays too. Â We are in Nebraska at my mom’s house and I couldn’t be happier to spend it here. Â We are hanging out, BBQing, lighting fireworks and having a good time!
Here is this week’s Friday favorites!
DIY Water Blob.Â I think this is so cool for kids! Â I would have loved this thing when I was little. Â It seems relatively simple with just a few materials needed! Â I think I might muster up David to try to make it with me.Â
Sparkler Shield.Â I love doing sparklers, but I hate the little “sparkles” that hit your arms and burn. Â This is a good tip for the little kids especially.
Baking Substitutions. Â I always need a reminder on how to do baking substitutions.
Dairy, Gluten and Egg-Free Chocolate Cake. Â I’ve been craving some baked good that actually tastes good too. Â I saw this picture of this chocolate cake and my desire for that increased ten fold and then I realized that I can eat this – it was made with me in mind!
DIY Moudable Sand.Â I’ve been waiting for the time until Aiden would like to play in the sand and I think that maybe we’ve reached the time where he would be interested in combing through it (and probably throwing it everywhere). Â This is a nice recipe to “make” sand for your little ones – just mix togetherÂ 5 cups of regular flour and 1 cup of baby oil.
There you have it for the Friday favorites this week. Â Everyone have a fun, healthy and safe 4th!!
What are you doing to celebrate the 4th of July if your an American?
