As a mother of three daughters, it’s so important for me to teach my girls about strong, talented women who were able to turn their dreams into success. I love that Lucia chose to honor Frida Kahlo and her own Hispanic heritage by choosing this particular costume as one of her Halloween looks. I was even more pleasantly surprised that she was able to put together this DIY Frida Kahlo costume for under $5! Head to our blog to find out how. Have you ever made your own costume? .

I will never forget the day we brought Elle home from the rescue. Super Dad took one look at her and said he was sure she was part lion... She was just missing the mane. So, when we had to decide what type of costume to get Elle this year for Halloween, I knew she HAD to be a lion! And @chewy had the perfect costume for her! Of course, Super Dad and Falynn had to get in on the action too. 
Now tell us, WHO WORE IT BEST?
Super Dad, Falynn or Elle?

Yesterday we visited a local farm and Falynn had the best time ever. She desperately wanted to hold a chicken but she didn’t know how. I love that she wasn’t afraid to ask for help. After learning the right way and trying a few times, she finally got the hang of it. I believe she held 3 different chickens. One 💩 on her shirt and we told her it was good luck. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣 How was your weekend? Did you try anything new?

World Mental Health Day is a day that affects us all. Whether it’s you or a loved one, it seems as though more and more people are speaking out about their struggles with mental health and how it affects their lives. Since having been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder myself years ago, I’ve connected with so many people through social media and am so grateful for this platform where we can reach out to others and let them know that they aren’t alone. What hurts my heart the most, is hearing about the amount of kids that deal with anxiety these days. I wish there was a magic button we could press to take away anxiety from our kids, so that they can enjoy their childhood, but unfortunately, it’s not that easy. Fortunately, there are steps we can take. I am grateful to @theanxietyhealer who has written another guest post on our blog today for those with teenagers who may be struggling with anxiety. She shares what signs to look for and when to seek help. I hope you’ll take a moment to check it out and pass it onto anyone with teenage kids. Let’s help in any way we can. .

Will You Be My Valenslime?

I’m incredibly excited to share our first guest blogger post, written by my incredibly awesome friend, Amy! Amy is the Mama behind Confessions of a Momster!

I love all things crafty and creative.  We are known for going over the top in this house when it comes to holidays and crafts.  There is one thing in particular that I’m not into so much, and that’s slime.  So when my youngest daughter decided that she wanted to make slime for Valentine’s Day, my immediate response was no.  I have managed to fend off this fad from taking over my house since the very first experience when she got slime all over her best friend’s comforter.  I was not letting that happen here.  However, while I might not like slime, I do love this kid, so I decided to oblige.  I have to say that the look on her face when I told her we were going to make slime was enough to make it all worth it.

I have zero experience with this stuff but I figured it couldn’t be that hard considering there are 1,765,823 videos on YouTube explaining how to make it.  The one thing I did know, was that I wanted to find a borax free, kid safe recipe.  My Google search, “best kid friendly slime without borax,” lead me to this video, which literally was titled “BEST Kid Friendly Slime! NO Borax.”

It seemed simple enough and so off we went to purchase our supplies.  We already had some food coloring, baking soda, scented oils, and craft sticks at home so we just had to purchase the gallon of white glue, two small bottles of contact solution, fine dust glitter, baby oil, and plastic containers with lids. I got these from Walmart because they come in a pack of 20 and are super inexpensive.

The Fun Part

Although I succumbed to this whole slime making thing, I wasn’t about to destroy my house in the process so let’s just say it was an organized mess.  We each decided on a color and had our own bowl which we filled with about 4 cups of glue.  We followed the instructions but learned quickly that even though there is a recipe, you really just keep adding stuff until it is the right consistency.

Once all the slime was made we separated it into the containers and slapped on some stickers that we designed, printed, and punched using a 2” circle craft punch like this one.  I’m not saying that we will be opening a slime factory, but I will admit to having a lot of fun.  Not to mention, I’m pretty sure I earned some cool points with this smiley faced kid.

Happy Valenslime’s Day!

Supplies:

  • Glue (white or clear)
  • Baking soda
  • Food coloring
  • Baby oil – optional
  • Glitter – fine dust glitter is suggested
  • Scented oils
  • Contact solution
  • Snack cups with lids

Notes:

  • One gallon of white Elmer’s Glue yielded 40 snack cups of slime filled about ¾ full
  • Each batch of 4 cups glue required approximately 3 tbsp of contact solution
  • We added different color food coloring, glitter, and scented oils to each batch
  • Baby oil was optional but we found that it really helped keep it from being too sticky and, as an added bonus, it smells really good and made our hands soft

    This looks like so much fun to make. My daughter loves slime, and I think would love to have a slime making party like this one. I like when you add the glitter and food coloring–you can be really creative with how it looks. I also prefer contact lens solution to using Borax, which can be dangerous.

    That is a bunch of slime you all made. Our school doesn’t allow the kids to make and bring something like this to give away at school. Some new school rule because one parent didn’t like the idea.

  • Alli Smith
    January 25, 2019

    This is the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for my grandkids. I need to have a slime-making sleepover with the grands and make these for them and their friends. So cute!!! I’m bookmarking this one.

  • Jeanette

    Slime is so huge right now with the kids and I think it’s awesome that you had this little slime making party at home. It’s really fun, it keeps them entertained, and it’s a great way to spend some time with them too! Love it.

  • Joely Smith

  • Heather
    February 15, 2018

    You know I’m not partial to slime either…but if it were between this and candy that rots your teeth, bring on the slime! I was excited to see some of my kids’ valentines yesterday had pencils and erasers and someone’s dad sent a fidget spinner to everyone in class….that was even better than candy for me. Nothing wrong with candy every now and then, but I feel its just overboard between Halloween, Christmas and V-day. There’s just too much of that going on!

  • Sarah Honey
    February 15, 2018

    This is such a cute Valentines idea! Love the idea of making slime and giving it as a Valentine instead of giving candy!

  • Emily
    February 15, 2018

    This is such a cute idea! My kids made rice krispie treats for their friends on Valentines day, they would have loved to make this though! These would be amazing birthday goodies for the kids coming to the party.

  • Jeanette
    February 15, 2018

    I host a Joy School at my house once a week. This would be a perfect idea to make with the kids. I’m pinning this for sure! Thanks for the great idea!

  • Amber Myers
    February 15, 2018

    This is such a great idea! My daughter is all about slime. She makes it all the time and trades slimes with her friends.

    February 15, 2018

    This is such a cute idea! With how much my daughter loves slime, I am shocked she didn’t want to do something like this for her class!

  • Kathy Myers

    This is such a cute idea. I love doing crafts with my three grandsons, they would love making this.

  • candy
    February 15, 2018

    You are one of those super moms who put all the rest of us to shame. I would make this and have with my kids. Never would have thought to make it for tons of kids for valentines day.

    So fun! my boys love making homemade slime (or oobleck as they call it). We make it a lot around our house.
