"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 13 Tornados and Magnets

Today I decided to do some science fun with the boys. Tornado's and Magnet fun.


Really simple! Fill the jar leaving about an inch on top, add one TINY drip of soap and SHAKE IT UP.
Hard to get a photo of this one it is too fast. Carter enjoyed trying it, we had to keep dumping it and re-doing as once you get a good tornado out of it, it is too foamy to do again. We had races to see whose lasted the longest and the best one. Kept them busy for ohhh 15 minutes! LOL!


The boys are still playing with this one a day later! Cut up the pipe cleaners and place in empty PLASTIC jar. Seal and take magnets and place on sides moving them around! The boys had fun playing tag, trying to steal the cleaners away from them and seeing who could get the most! They woke up this morning and grabbed it and messed around with it while watching cartoons! :) FUN!
