Rainbow Looms: Inverted Fishtail using your Fingers. Yes… it has finally happened… the rainbow loom craze has hit the Red Ted Art household.

Rainbow Looms: Inverted Fishtail using your Fingers

And todaye we have the Inverted Fishtail using your Fingers pattern to share with you. It took us a little longer to get there, as my kids are 4yrs and 6yrs old and though the 6yrs old can JUST about manage the Loom Boards, we had to discover “Finger Looming” first. Using your fingers to create loom band bracelets is just so much easier for younger ones. Though do take care that they don’t keep the rubber bands on their fingers too long, as it can get a bit sore!!!! If you do like using the Loom Band Board, there are great Rainbow Loom Patterns here. The thing I really like about the loom bands – especially the Finger Loom Band patterns – is how the kids are all teaching each other. Hand print snowman ornaments.

Fun with frozen: making ice grow. I have been noticing lots of fun ideas being shared by my fellow bloggers that are all related to the Walt Disney movie “Frozen.”

Fun with frozen: making ice grow

I must admit that my grandsons and I have enjoyed watching this movie at home on more that one occasion. So for all you “Frozen” fans out there (and for those of you who just like really cool ice science), here is a fun way to make ice grow just like Elsa does! Well almost – to correctly state this for our young scientists, here is what crystallization means… So I am going to try and explain this but at the end of this post, I will put a video link to where you can learn a little bit more about it and probably understand it better too. It isn’t all that complicated but it helps to have a little extra information. You can color the water first if you would like to make colored ice grow. After the 2 hours and 45 minutes, your water should still look like water and not be frozen. Gently take your super icy cold water out of the freezer and handle very gently.

Kids' Science: Magic Balloons - Playdough To Plato

Paper plates crafts. Sand Footprint Craft - Full DIY instructions! - Summer is my family’s favourite time of year – we’re very blessed to live 5mins away from many beautiful beaches.

Sand Footprint Craft - Full DIY instructions! -

It’s not surprising to know we spend nearly every weekend during summer at the beach. I wanted to do a beach themed craft to celebrate the amazing summer we’ve just had. I thought it would be cool to do something that could mark this particular summer and try to ‘freeze it in time’. This is what I came up with – Sand Footprint moulds – using just a Photo frame, sand, plaster of paris and some shells for extra decoration. Exactly what you’ll need – an old sheet or plastic tablecloth (to protect your work surface).A photo frame big enough to fit the number of prints you wish to use.

Camden had an awesome monster birthday party for his 3rd birthday a couple weeks ago and we made some super cute handprint monsters. I put the handprints on a nice piece of canvas and have this on display on his bookshelf in his bedroom. It’s adorable. We made different looking monsters by only painting some fingers and also stamping his hand upside down. There are really so many cute ways you could make this. Summer Craft: Water Wall.

This time around, we decided we’d put together a tinkle trunk filled with fun dress-up costumes and accessories similar to what Grae has in her dress-up station. We were really excited about the idea until we realized that the birthday girl is headed home to the States just a few days after her party.

Fathers Day Stepping Stone. Rainbow Tie-Dye Surprise Cake for Tablespoon.com's 5th Birthday. Tablespoon.com turns five this week and to help them celebrate I baked a Tie-Dye Surprise Cake with brightly colored 5's hiding inside.

Tablespoon.com has lots of rainbow colored foods on their website, so this was the perfect cake for their celebration. This tie-dye design was inspired by the brilliant Sandra Denneler who made the most amazing Tie-Dye Peace Sign Cake. I loved how she created a multi colored cake and cut out peace signs then hid them inside her cake. To mimic the 5's which I hid inside my cake, I covered the cake with marbleized rainbow colored fondant then added some rainbow candles on top. As I was making the surprise cake, I really fell in love with the look of the colorful cake slices, so for our recent game night, I made a lemon pound cake with lemon glaze on top.

I had an extra box of Betty Crocker Pound cake mix which I just doctored up by adding a tablespoon of lemon zest and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Backyard Hacks - Page 2 of 2 - Princess Pinky Girl.
