Top Five Friday Favorites

Happy 4th of July!  This is one of my favorite holidays too.  We are in Nebraska at my mom’s house and I couldn’t be happier to spend it here.  We are hanging out, BBQing, lighting fireworks and having a good time!

Here is this week’s Friday favorites!

DIY Water Blob. I think this is so cool for kids!  I would have loved this thing when I was little.  It seems relatively simple with just a few materials needed!  I think I might muster up David to try to make it with me. 


Sparkler Shield.  I love doing sparklers, but I hate the little “sparkles” that hit your arms and burn.  This is a good tip for the little kids especially.

Baking Substitutions.  I always need a reminder on how to do baking substitutions.


Dairy, Gluten and Egg-Free Chocolate Cake.  I’ve been craving some baked good that actually tastes good too.  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. 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).  This is a nice recipe to “make” sand for your little ones – just mix together 5 cups of regular flour and 1 cup of baby oil.


There you have it for the Friday favorites this week.  Everyone have a fun, healthy and safe 4th!!


What are you doing to celebrate the 4th of July if your an American?

Any fun ideas to make for your little ones?

  1. Yes! Water blobs! A must! I love the little ones. I meant to do that last year for Aria with a trash bag. Looove the sparkler shield, shoot that is clever! I’ve been meaning to pick up some sparklers since we didn’t light any ourselves yet.
