The 7 WORST things to say to your kid

diy When I was in China last summer, I remember noticing that most girls had ponytails tied with a scrunchie with bunny ears. I could never pull this off, but thought it was adorable, and kept it in mind for an Easter DIY. It's a great way to use fabric scraps, a simple accessory to wear at an Easter party, and a sweet Easter gift for a little girl. When I was done with the DIY, I saw that there was a similar one on YouTube. Okay, on to the DIY! Supplies needed:Fabric, about 1/8 yardFabric glue (or a sewing machine if you prefer to sew)Elastic (I used the 0.25 wide one), about 9"ScissorsPencilSafety pin Start by cutting a 18" x 3" piece of fabric. On the right side of the fabric, apply fabric glue all along the top edge (on the longest side), trying to distribute the glue evenly. Fold (wrong side facing out), press firmly along the edge (where you just applied glue), and let the glue dry for about half an hour. Once the glue has dried, turn the tube inside out. Cut a 12" x 5" piece of fabric.

Give Your Shampoo a Lift with a Little Baking Soda » Eco Baking soda is most often used for deodorizing refrigerators and, of course, baking. This multi-tasker also has medicinal uses, can scrub your tub and – surprise! – can be used to green up your beauty routine. While some people swear by ditching the shampoo all together and using baking soda instead, my trial of that last year didn’t go so well. My favorite use for baking soda is to give my shampoo a little extra oomph on those days when my hair’s gotten so dirty, it needs some super-strong cleansing. You can also mix baking soda with your face wash for an exfoliating scrub that will eliminate oil and leave your skin feeling extra clean.
