*For quick access to the Jupiter Juice recipe, scroll on down. Since returning from our two-week-long summer sojourn back east, we've been living in a house overrun by wildlife and without access to the outside world. At least, that's what it feels like. Here's the recap. First off, the bobcats returned while we were gone… Continue reading Disconnected, Overrun, and DIY Jupiter Juice “Blood”
Scroll down for sliminess, because I first need to exhale. Today was a day! Just one of those days where I felt like my head was clouded and I found everything annoying -- like stomach tightening, blood boiling annoying. I'm usually an upbeat, fast-paced and positive person, so my tolerance for my own orneriness is… Continue reading A Day of Cloudy Heads and 3-Ingredient Fluff Slime

The marshmallows lent a sort of fondant quality to the dough -- which hardened after a few hours, so keep… Continue reading DIY Edible Play Dough with Marshmallows
We made Galaxy goo (which Raya turns into a bath for her Shopkins)! What is it about kids and slime?? I'd about had it with our Borox experiments (mostly because of the whole hands-in-everything situation), so I scoured the Internet for other options. I have to say, Borox gets the job done (maybe best), so… Continue reading Shopkins Bath (galaxy Goo)
This was a fun one -- and super feelsy. Raya and I took to her treehouse (luckily the bobcats had vacated! Kora contentedly kicked in her beloved carrier as I trekked up the uber narrow ladder with a bowl of sand (regular play sand mixed with crafter colored sand) and a can of daddy's shaving… Continue reading Sand Foam!
