fun things to make and do!

just a few fun, easy, free things to do with the kids.


what we call a 'treasure ice block'

what you do is freeze things in layers... in a plastic container.
this was the 1st block i made, and i used just used plastic toys from around the house.

This kept Daddy and Lilly busy for at least half an hour :)

SO much fun on a hot summer day!!


giving old stubby crayons new life!!



( I want to say I melted them for about 7 minutes at 350 degrees. Then I let them cool/harden before popping them out.)




i believe i got both of these ideas through this blog... The Crafty Crow.

a WONDERFUL blog constantly being updated with wonderful ideas for moms, teachers... and really anyone who loves to find great ideas for fun things to do!!

Fun ideas, Jen. We've never done the treasure 'block' but I've done it with ice cubes. The crayons I did in mini-muffin tins and they weren't nearly as cute. And they messed up my muffin tins!

Love the pirate stuff too ;)
