things I ‘pinned’ and then actually did.

If you’re anything like me, you have a love affair with Pinterest.

All those pretty pictures, all those pretty crafts, all that pretty EVERYTHING!

I pin and pin so many wonderful ideas, but rarely get around to actually doing any of them.

Until those days that I actually do.

Yes, even I am surprised.

So, here are my latest three examples of Pinterest genius that are totally worth pursuing!

Trust me. Especially you out there with young kids. Do these.


Pin-tastic Idea Number One:

The masking tape road (with our added extras of cardboard tube speed humps, and car ramp).

This one is very straight forward. Stick masking tape everywhere. It’s your road.

Then, if you happen to have an old cardboard tube lying around like we did. Well, just let your imagination run wild.

The result. One VERY happy three year old.



Pin-tastic Idea Number Two:

This totally delicious recipe for Chocolate Chip Pretzel Cookies sourced from ‘The Sugar Hit’.


These are soooo good, and did not last long in our household!

You should totally check out the ‘The Sugar Hit’ blog for more mouth watering, tasty treats.

I just know you’ll be baking up a storm before you can utter the words ‘sugar coma’.



Pin-tastic Idea Number Three:

The old bi carb soda and vinegar trick.

Obviously, this isn’t a new concept but I had totally forgotten how fun it is!

We just made little mountain of bi-carb soda and then mixed little pots of vinegar, food colouring and dish soap. The dish soap makes for extra frothy, bubbly fun!

Grab yourself some eye droppers and drip that magic solution into the bi-carb. The result is super exciting. For me even. Not just for my kids.

In fact, this was so much fun, my little miss even included it in her ‘highlights of the day’ drawing.

See me there, standing on the stool in my uggboots taking photos?

That’s historical evidence that this activity was a total winner : )



Have fun friends!
