I found these boards in the trash the other day and thought they would be the perfect way to turn these unsightly paint cans into something useful...

Pick a color and paint the boards.

shelves3

Measure the height and width of the paint cans.

shelves4

Measure and cut decorative paper to wrap around the cans.

Wrap the paint cans with paper and fasten with tape.

Layer the boards on top of the cans for makeshift shelves. Much prettier!!

bottle fizzzz play fun

written by tammy

fizz ingredients

While fizzing up a bottle may seem elementary…  to a little kid, it’s a blast!!

Simple household ingredients can turn recyclable bottles into fizzing fun for young and old alike. The mixture is simple, baking soda plus vinegar equals a bubbly reaction. Anyone who made it through grade school science probably learned how to make a ‘volcano’ explode in a similar manner.

We realized we were out of baking soda but guess what… baking powder also did the trick.

pour the vinegar

Just fill an empty plastic of glass bottle with a few spoonfuls of powder, add vinegar and watch the kids faces light up with excitement. Yes, bringing joy to a child really is THAT EASY.

fizzy fun

PS.. let the kids scoop, let the kids pour, and let the kids help clean up! My four year old helper was just as capable as her big sister.

PPS..do I really have to say, DON’T DRINK.
