Homemade Recycled Crayon Tutorial!

Hey guys,

So, we have lots of old crayons lying around our house. Instead of throwing them away, I like to melt them down into shapes and make brand new crayons! It is SO easy, you won’t believe it. Kids love this project, too! I used a heart shaped silicone mold, but you can use any shapes you want. Watch the video below :)

5 Must Have Apps for Moms & Dads

If you’re a tech savvy mom, you will love these!

If you have kids old enough to do chores, this is a must have. Create chore & task lists for your kids as well as goals. As they complete them, you check it off & it automatically deposits money into their “virtual wallet” which they can redeem at any of their 25 affiliated partners including Target, GameStop, & Walmart. Get the heck outta here. Hello. Wham, bam, thank you ma’am. This means no more begging your kids to do chores. Let’s all jump up and down with glee. GOODNIGHT.

for more info check out their website HERE & download the app in your iTunes store.

2. Mom Maps

This is great if you live in a bigger city, or when you’re traveling. Let Mom Maps help you find local parks, indoor play areas, museums, kid friendly restaurants, etc. all by using your GPS location. JAW ON FLOOR.

Instead of just emailing photos of your kids to their grand parents, let’s take it back to the 90’s and actually use the pony express to deliver a real life photo card to them. With this app, you can take a photo on your phone, sign it, add a border, and send to an address. You just pay for the postage, & the company mails it for your in the mail. Think about how easy this makes sending Holiday photo cards??!! GENIUSSSSSS.

Stop it. Just get out of here right now. Scan any barcode on your phone & this app will show you where (if anywhere) they are selling the product for cheaper, local and online. GAME CHANGER. I can’t breathe.

5. Grocery Gadget

There are so many things you can do with this app, I find myself short of breath just thinking about it. You can share lists, SYNC them while shopping with your partner (imagine a world where you don’t end up at the checkout with 2 loaves of bread. HORROR), and also this freakishly smart app memorizes which items are on specific aisles. GASP.
