Happy Friday, friends!! We made it through another week, are you as tired as I am?? Who’s ready for a relaxing Mother’s Day this Sunday? I sure am ready for my people to wait on me some, lol! I hope you enjoy seeing what we were up to this past week…let’s get to it!
1// Crafts outside in our courtyard:
We had a great time together creating animals and shapes with Aquabeads!
2// Kid activities and experiments this week:
My toddler loves stickers! It’s a simple toddler activity to keep them busy while you help your other kids with virtual school or for when you are trying to get some work done. This sticker pack comes with a variety of 500+ stickers. Tyler will pick which stickers he wants to use and I will draw him a basic landscape or scene that fits that category of stickers. I’m not a talented artist but I do my best!
Experiment: Mentos & Diet Coke
What happens when you mix them? They cause an explosion!
I don’t know about you but it was definitely time to start cleaning my make-up brushes more often. I found this cleaner to help me out, you can find it HERE. Truth be told, in the past when my brushes used to get gross, I would just buy a new brush. Obviously, that solution is a waste of money and good brushes are not cheap. It’s a better solution to invest in a cleaner and be able to use your nice brushes for a longer time. This cleaner worked great and got the job done!
4// New family TV show: Nailed It!
Our LEGOMasters show ended and we were in need of finding a new show for our family to enjoy. We found this show called Nailed It! We all are loving it and it makes us laugh out loud. It’s a food competition for amateur at home bakers to recreate different baking scenes, from Donald Trumps head, to Sushi, to animals taking a chocolate bath…the show has tons of humor and is very creative. What the contestants create is usually hilarious and far from how it should look. I recommend checking out this show….
5// New Kitchen Gadgets:
I love finding new kitchen gadgets to help make my life easier in the kitchen. Here are my latest Amazon finds:
This foldable cutting board was a fun find. When you are chopping up your veggies and need to add them to your pan or pot only to have some of the pieces fall into your stove…this tool eliminates that problem.
I was tired of my berries going bad quickly and was looking for a solution and found these food saver containers. You put the fruit in the container unwashed. The tray at the bottom helps keep the fruit dry and from molding. You end up getting to enjoy your fruit fresh for longer!
I was so excited for this tool, we love our avocados here in California and at the Gimeno home! This tool is fantastic, it’s useful and it gets the job done all with one tool, I highly recommend it!
That’s a wrap on this week’s 5 on Friday, I’m hoping you are finding these posts informative and useful and full of ideas that you can apply to your home. Have a great weekend and Happy Mother’s Day to all you hard working Moms out there that are keeping your families happy and well taken care of. My wish is that you are all well appreciated by your families and shown the love you deserve!
