Finger Paint Recipes (Even An Edible One)

Finger painting is something that my kids have always enjoyed. However, just like my play-doh post,finger paints don't last very long in a house with 3 kids. Colors get mixed and you'd be surprised how fast they run out. I've been looking for recipes that are easy to put together. I love the idea of homemade things, especially when it comes to my children, because I know exactly what goes in it.

I hope you find them useful and feel free to pin them to Pinterest!

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.
