Celebrate Lightning McQueen Day with an Easy DIY Finish Line Flag
August 25, 2019

Guess what we are totally freaking out about? Lightning McQueen Day on September 5th! Lightning McQueen packs a 750-horsepower V-8 and can reach 60 mph in 3.2 seconds on his way to a 200-mph top speed.  My boys love anything with speed but they love their favorite character from the animated Pixar film Cars; Lightning McQueen. The kids are ready to open their Disney Pixar Cars 5 pack (available at Walmart) and get their engines rumbling.  It's a race between Shannon Spokes, Danny Swervez, Lightning McQueen, Jackson Storm, and Brick Yardley. The only thing they need is a Finish Race Car Flag. So, we decided to make our own very simple race car flags for the finish line! The boys are excited and can't wait to see who wins …

April 22, 2019

We just got back from Disneyland where we had a Woody sighting!  Toy Story 4 is all I can think about! I found this Disney Toy Story 4 Forky Creativity Set! Check out Forky! I love the new toy, Forky, who insists he is NOT a toy! Forky is a spork-turned-craft-project and is convinced he doesn't belong in Bonnie's room.  But we all know that everything in the world has a purpose, including craft project toys! I thought it would be fun to do a quick round up of Toy Story DIY crafts and printables. And if your looking for toy story party ideas check them out here.

How to make Chocolate Playdough
February 10, 2019

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 playdough, but never scented, especially chocolate 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 poopplay dough.  My boys are obsessed with anything that is related to poop (farting, burping, etc.). Play dough has many benefits like teaching kid's fine motor skills and creativity.  There are even sensory benefits to using playdough.  I put the pot on the counter so that they …

This past Holiday, my friend and I decided to get creative and make DIY candles as gifts for people.  It was such a rewarding experience to hand make candles for people we love, with our own mixes of Aromatherapy Essential Oil Blends. https://www.amazon.com/Goddess-Garden-Aromatherapy-Go-Multi-Colored/dp/B07Z75V6TL?dchild=1&keywords=Goddess+Garden+Organics+Aromatherapy+lava+bracelets&qid=1612065617&sr=8-2&linkCode=ll1&tag=momjunkycom-20&linkId=0ef6a974eed0aace808195a184b151af&language=en_US&ref_=as_li_ss_tl 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 many uses, especially homemade candles.
