It's funny, has some great lines, and teaches important lessons about life! We recently got back from Disneyland, where we had a Woody sighting! Toy Story is one of our favorite Disney movie franchises. While we were there, we also got to see Buzz Lightyear, Jessie, and all the other Toy Story characters. It was so much fun, and we had a hard time leaving!  We are a Toy Story family, and we love Disney Pixar movies with these beloved characters. Since themed crafts are the perfect way to get kids excited about all things …

How to make Chocolate PlayDough; a Fun Activity for Kids
February 10, 2019

If you're looking for a fun activity to do with the kids, check out this chocolate playdough recipe! It's a great sensory activity and smells like chocolate! By now, you would think that I know how to make chocolate playdough, but I've honestly never thought about it until my 4-year-old's teacher asked me to make it for the class.  We've made regular play dough (also called Play-Doh), but never scented. I'm not going to say no to my son's teacher, right? But then it opened the doors to other things like mud play dough and poop playdough.  Only a boymom could understand why anyone would want to make poop play dough.  My boys are obsessed with anything that is related to poop (farting, burping, etc.). Playdough has …

How to Make DIY Candles with Essential Oils
January 31, 2019

. This past Holiday season, my friend and I decided to get creative and make DIY candles as Holiday gifts for people.  We love DIY projects. Not only do candles make great gifts, it was such a rewarding experience to hand make candles for people we love, with our own mixes of Aromatherapy Essential Oil Blends. Fragrance is pretty personal but when mixing essential oils, you can use different premade aromatherapy blends or individual essential oils. Goddess Garden Perseverance Aromatherapy Bracelet Goddess Garden has their own aromatherapy blends that I use for candles, sprays, and Aromatherapy Lava Bracelets. One of my favorite scents is Happy Day.   It's a happiness-boosting essential oil blend, featuring certified-organic citrus oils like bergamot and grapefruit.  Aromatherapy positively affects mood and alertness and can have …

How to make Essential Oil Spray Recipes
October 31, 2018

Aromatherapy uses essential oil sprays to help with a variety of health and well-being issues. While you may only be interested in making a body mist, these sprays can also be used as room sprays, linen sprays, and car freshener sprays and they are the best way to get rid of unwanted smells. The basic recipe is the same. The difference lies in the scent or blend you choose for your very own homemade essential oil spray. While I don't pretend to be an expert on aromatherapy, I've discovered that not only diffusing essential oils but also preparing a simple homemade oil spray makes your entire house smell great and feel good. I've enjoyed making my own essential oil spray recipes so much that I thought I'd …
