Get ready for Easter with these yummy haystacks! They are always fun to make and taste just as great. While some people love to get creative and make their haystacks into adorable little nests with eggs, I just want to be able to make something quick and easy so my kiddo will have something to snack on or a bribery treat 😁. If you have picky eaters, I would recommend using pretzels instead of the noodles.
Bath bombs can be fun for all ages. As much as I like going to the store and picking the perfect one, it can also be fun to make the perfect one at home! Here is a how to video so you can have a DIY spa day.
1 cup baking soda
3/4 cup corn starch
1/4 cup Epsom salt
1 cup citric acid
Food coloring-as much as you need to get the perfect color
Essential oil scent of your choice
Stir all of the dry ingredients together. Combine the food coloring with a little bit of water in a spray bottle and spritz it into the dry mixture. Make sure to do this gradually, because if you add to much the mixture will start to fizz resulting in the bath bomb not fizzing in the water. Next add a few drops of essential oil and mix everything together until the color is consistent throughout. Place the mixture into whatever mold you decided on and let them dry overnight.
In spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, we chose to find a recipe for Shamrock Shakes. Of course, we put the word ‘skinny’ before it in the search to make ourselves feel better while drinking these. The link for the recipes is posted below so you can also try it out.
