"I think I know what we are going to do today Mom"
I am a mother of two rambunctious boys ages 9 and 2. I also have a chronic autoimmune disease which has changed my life around. I cannot do the things I used to. I do not want my kids to feel like they miss out on things. We have been using Pinterest frequently. It is a treasure chest of inspiration. We pin and pin and pin! Then they sit there....on the bulletin board. These great creative ideas that scream at me and make me desire to be more creative! I think I can do that! I cannot do a lot of things but I can do some things! I just have to change some! I am not working currently due to the disease. This summer I want to make fun! I want it to be one they remember! So...our goal is to take one of the creative ideas we have pinned a day and complete it. A pin a day. This can be a little one, a big one, just something to break up the summer days and do things that we normally would not! We can do it! These ideas are from the creative minds on pinterest and we hope you enjoy them! 86 days of Summer!!!

Day 5 GLOW JARS! oh and a wrestling mask and gloves

5th day of Summer brought us to Glow Jars from pinterest! We are loving pinterest and Carter is enjoying our activities! We really were just doing a test run for this weekends trip to the mountains and boy am I glad we did! It looked simple!

To make them just cut open glow bracelets or necklaces and drip in empty jar! Shake Shake Shake!
Tips from our first run! Make sure jar has no water drops in it and is dry. Otherwise it waters down the glow! We did purple and green. Green shows up much better, the purple was really light (however, it was the one that had water in the jar still)  WEAR GLOVES! I put gloves on Carter but did not on myself and got some on me and it definitely is an irritant! 

Carter thought it was awesome! He is taking them to bed with him tonight. I stuck the purple one in the freezer to see if we could get it to last longer or reuse. Pictures are tough without the flash, they are not as good as the ones on Pinterest but still pretty cool! RECOMMEND THIS CRAFT. It is fast, easy and the kids love it. self, so when I cut the green one open and it squirted on me it definitely is an irritant. It says non-toxic but was tingling and itchy. Lastly, get a lot of bracelets. We used 2 in each jar and that was not enough. 

Carter also made his own wrestling gloves and mask! He did this on his own when I was in the yard with Callen! So we are inspiring him to be creative also!! <3 it!
