Hey friends! Last week we went and saw the new movie – Coco from Disney·Pixar! If you haven’t seen – go! Like right now! It’s hands down one of the best movies I’ve been to in years! The next day the whole family talked about how we want to go to it again! So, I got online and found some Disney·Pixar Coco Kids Printables and Activities to hold them over and I wanted to share them with you today!

I can’t believe how fast summer is going guys! We’ve been so busy that we’ve hardly had time for a lot of arts and crafts! But, we have found the time to do a few things and my kids have loved making this super easy Glitter Slime!
It only takes 3 ingredients and 5 minutes and then it’s ready to go for the kiddos! I highly suggest you give it a try! I promise you your kiddos will love it!
- Elmer’s Clear Glitter Glue (or just clear glue and add glitter or use white glue)
- Liquid Starch
- Mixing Bowl
1. In a medium to large sized bowl, dump the bottle of Elmer’s Clear Glue.
2. Fill the Elmer’s Glue container 1/2 way full of water and add it to the Elmer’s Glue and mix!
3. If you want to add color or glitter, then go ahead and do it now.
4. Next, you’ll slowly add the 1/2 cup Liquid Starch to your mixture. Add 1/4 cup, mix well. Then repeat!
5. Keep mixing – it will slowly get thicker and thicker! Switch to kneading with hands nice it’s thick enough for you to remove from the bowl. The mixture will be sticky as first. As you continue to knead it with your hands, it will lose that sticky feeling!
6. When not using it, store in a dry container!
Now get ready for hours of fun for your kiddos!
Make sure and check out a few of my other summer activities and projects:
Hey friends! During the summer we generally try to do any outdoor activities in the morning while it’s still somewhat cooler outside. Then in the afternoon sometimes I can get my 3 year old to fall asleep and my older kids will do quiet time! For me quiet time basically means them doing an activity that doesn’t require my help, so that I can try to fit in a little work time or house cleaning time! One the days that Dylan doesn’t fall asleep, then we’ll do a project or activity that needs moms help! My boys are obsessed with doing art projects and so we’ve been playing around with lots of different chalk and paint recipes this summer! They’ll go outside and draw on the concrete and run through the sprinkler!
Today I am sharing with you some of our favorite recipes, plus a few that are on our list to try! Check them out!
This recipe is a very standard chalk recipe! I love the molds that Grey used to make her “pops!”
I love this recipe, because having the ice chalk on the popsicle sticks really helps little hands not get so messy! Plus, the wet look it leaves on the ground is pretty rad!
My kids love this recipe, because they have a little bit more control of their art work because they use paint brushes! However, if you have little little kids this doesn’t work as well, because they may dump the containers of paint out.
I have boys and they love anything the fizzes! So, they loved using this recipe and then spraying it with vinegar!
We’ve been saving this recipe for a day when we can really make a day of it! I can already tell it’s going to be a good time!
In my opinion, anything glow in the dark is extra fun! Amiright? My kids loved doing this last week! And, I am totally going to make some red, white and blue glow in the dark for the holiday fun this month!
My kids loved this and it sprays off the ground super easy! Don’t be shocked if your kiddos spray each other either! haha!
My older kids liked doing this, but it was a little hard for my 3 year old. Be prepared for a mess if you’re including littles! I personally will probably just do this again with my older boys if Dylan is napping!
This is an activity that we love to do as a family! We all work on a “masterpiece” and then put it up in one of the boys room for a while!
This paint is so fun! It has a very cool look to it and is really fun when painting with objects! We love to make this on REALLY hot days when we need an inside activity!
This recipe is super quick and fun! I love making this for my youngest, because it doesn’t transfer to the skin and is a really clean up!
Do you have any other recipes that I should know about? I hope you have a great rest of the summer friends!
Please tell me that I’m not the only one that has a love/hate relationship with Playdough! My 2 and 5 year old play it at least 3 or 4 times a week! I love how much they love it and how creative they are with it, but I also know that I’ll have a mess to clean up off the floor after! I recently designed these fun Learning Shapes Playdough Mats and I wanted to share them all with you today!
My kids have loved playing with them the last 6 weeks, since I designed them! They’re super easy to print at home, because they are designed to print on an 8.5×11 piece of cardstock!
We start by rolling out lots and lots of “snakes!”
My kids like to trace the shape, as well as make mini-snakes to trace out the spelling of the shape name. My 5 year old is really into forming words right now and loves practicing the spelling of the shapes!!
Today I’m offering you 7 different shape options! All are 8.5 x 11 Printable Shape Playdough Mats!! I like to print them in full color on a thick cardstock. Then I run them through my home laminator! And that’s it! Then just hand them over to your kiddos and they’ll have hours of fun playing with them!
