"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!!!

Carter did volcano's at school last year and has been wanting to do one. We did the fun part but did not paper mache an actual volcano. :) Maybe later this summer! We go through so much vinegar and baking soda as Carter loves the chemical reaction and changing it.

We simply added orange food coloring to get the lava look.
We used:
water bottle
orange food coloring
baking soda
dish soap
warm water

Fill the bottle about half way with hot water, add the baking soda, dish soap and food coloring. When you are outside or in the tub, where ever you are doing it just pour the vinegar in! Carter loves to do this. You can even do it a couple times with the same mix and still get an awesome effect!! We got it about a 4 inches high. Going to figure out how to get it higher! :)
