How to Make Basic Bath Salts - Recipes for Homemade Spa Bath Salts

It's a great recipe/project for kids...or kids who want to help their parent make something special. I know...I know...we've become a culture of quick showers rather than long luxurious baths...but the times when we do want to take a long soak, adding some scented and/or therapeutic salts to the water really make the bath wonderful. Click here for a collection of all of my bath salts recipes - but the setup and procedure is pretty similar (and simple) for all of them. For this basic bath salts recipe you'll need: Some salt - I prefer a mixture of sea salt and epsom salt, but there are many different types of salt both rare and common from all over the world.

Sandpaper Crayon Transfers

The drawing was made directly onto the sandpaper with layers of Crayola crayons. The sandpaper was turned over onto a sheet of white paper and a hot iron melted the wax of the crayons onto the paper. I protected my iron with a couple sheets of white paper. This method gives the final image a pointillist effect. Melted Crayon Art Projects ~ Be Different...Act Normal.

Melted Crayon Art Projects ~ Be Different...Act Normal

This beautiful one from JK Create is the first one I remember seeing pinned on Pinterest. You should check out all of the amazing pieces she sells on Etsy. So it got me thinking about what other ways you could use melted crayons for art projects, since you wouldn't need the help of a blow dryer or oven to melt them here right now. Here are some fun ideas I found. Sam's Scrap Candy created a melted crayon canvas of her own, but added a personal touch with hand prints: If your artists are younger, you can leave some crayons that they have arranged on canvas out in the sun like this art project from Clumsy Crafter: If the artist is older, you can let them melt crayons over a candle like Ideals to Life: And last, but not least (actually one of my favorites) is this melted crayon Impressionist style piece from Everything Burger: Happy Melting!

Make your own baby leg & arm warmers! As a single mom of 3 under the age of 3 I was always looking to save money by figuring out how to make those neat pricey things that everyone has gotta have!

Make your own baby leg & arm warmers!

I LOVE baby legs, but with 7.5 month old twin girls at $12-$15 a pair it adds up fast. So I came up with a tutorial to share on my blog for free with other moms just like me. This is a quick inexpensive project that anyone can do! The socks in the tutorial below were $1 at Walmart, but Target & the dollar store are great places to get them as well. I have found them ranging from $1-$4 depending on length & where you get them. Supplies… Womens tube/knee socks (6m-6yr) or Womens crew socks (0-18m) Girls knee socks also work GREAT. Sewing machine or needle & thread.
