Day 198 of 365 Days of Life and Stuffz

 Glad I took kiddo to get his Dollar Tree haul today. The Zehrs plant part was having it's final day and man did I score. 

SUCCULENTS were a buck.. a buck and everything except the hanging basket were BOGO. 

There was also gorgeous English Ivy and they were 50 cents each at BOGO 50 cents each. Had I been prepared and had more cash on me I would have got more but love what I have. Will be propagating the succulents. 


All stuffed in car ready to come home to my Greenhouse and then decide what I make with them. My end goal with succulents is a glass table with them all in it. 





Aloe got these 4 huge plants for 2 bucks.

It focuses on the most common letter-sound relationships while helping children tune in to the fact that letters can make different sounds in different situations to avoid confusion for beginners.

Day 196 of 365 Days of Life and Stuffz

 Hard to believe already to July. Last half of the year. Excited to see what it brings as there has been lots of Magick this year. Planning on keeping the momentum going and being more mindfull. 

Perfect day for a Vodka mixed summer drink and trying to get some burn on my legs. Even out the difference lol. Not much luck today. 

Kiddo is living in the pool and loving it. So glad he has that.

Day 195 of 365 days of Life and Stuffz

Once much needed rain subsided walked to Giant Tiger for a couple things. Kiddo grabbed himself 2 chocolate bars, I splurged for myself and then he eats both of his and finishes my Toblerone which I was saying 3 pieces for me tomorrow. I spent 10 minutes trying to find the chocolate in the snack box realizing little sneaker took it and left the package. I knew I should have bought 2. 


Working on some felt animal toys for kiddo. 1 done, 1 on the go and make a couple more.



Past a perfect leaf on the way on our walk so kiddo wanted a pic.

BOOK ACTIVITY



Sun and Moon Magick Clay Beads


A perfect playtime sensory craft.

Paint, color with markers, crayons, pencil crayons, use paper and glue; all to decorate your beads. You can leave the hole step out if you don't want beads and just make mini sun and moon mini figures. With left over clay you could add a black cat or any creation also just for fun.

You can even add glitter, sand specks, mini beads, bits, and baubles to clay before it hardens.

To make bead once you make shape you can make a hole with a toothpick by going in circular motion or just use a straw end. This step needs to be done before any drying time.

I made a salt dough clay, but you can use any recipe you have or grab some clay from the dollar store.

I air dried my beads under the sun and the moon to add their Magicks into my clay. Let dry completely before colouring in. Flip your pieces over a few times, hours in between each turn to give each side a chance to dry.

Salt Dough Recipe I used was just 1:1:1 ratio of salt, water , flour and added in more salt and flour equally to get perfect dough consistency for me.
