T-shirt Headbands

Just when I thought I knew everything there was to make out of an old t-shirt I ran into this tutorial on making -shirt headbands for my girls! They so super soft and my littlest "pull-everything-out-of-my-hair" girl left them in longer then normal!! And the best part, they're NO SEW headbands! I've been in a no saw mood so this was great!

I didn't follow the tutorial exactly and they still work great. Instead of using the sticky adhesive I just pulled out my hot glue gun!! Just cut a strip of t-shirt long enough to go around your childs head (or your could make it for yourself!). Hot glue the two ends together. Cut a smaller piece to cover the part you just glued together! Easy peasy!! (the tutorial has great step by step pictures if you need it!)

On the green one, I took a bleach pen to it to make the poka dots! Just put your design in and let it sit for about 30 minute (100% cotton works best!), wash off and let air dry.

Homemade Ice Cream!

This is a fun treat that even the kids enjoy making!! All you need is:

2 Tbsp sugar
1 cup half & half (or light cream)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup coarse salt or table salt
gallon-sized Ziploc bag
pint-sized Ziploc bag

Mix together the sugar, half and half and vanilla. Pour into the smaller bag (pint) and seal well. Add the ice to the gallon size bag making it half full (being optimistic! ), pour the salt on top of the ice and then add your pint size bag, seal well...start shaking! You'll shake for about 5-8 minutes. Open the bags and there you have it...homemade ice cream in a bag!!

(thanks 2 Little Hooligans for the recipe)

Homemade Fruit Snacks

I did it! I made them over the weekend and they turned out yummy. A few notes, they are very sticky after they're set up but I left mine out over night and they were much better. I had a hard time getting them out of my mold which I got at IKEA after just the 20 minutes like the recipe says so I waited longer and it was 10 times easier!! ( I'd say a couple of hours) Hope you enjoy them like we did!! Here's the link for ya!
