Beyond Deweyville

Breeding, feeding, writing, reading, crafting, and photographing in Orange County, CA Where it has become a novelty to raise your own kids and mow your own grass (if you can afford some).

Plastic Sheets and Water Beads…are awesome August 17, 2011

So there’s this blog that I’ve fallen madly, craftily, mom crushily in love with: Play at Home Mom
Here’s what we’ve happily copied in the last few days.
A Giant Plastic Bubble. Tip: do not attempt to puff it up with a leaf blower. Just don’t. Go get your fan.

And today we discovered Water Beads!
You can find them at Walmart on the floral supply aisle. You know, with moss, vases, floral tape.

You put them in water to soak for 4-6 hours. Plan accordingly.

And then, voila! Squishy, pretty fun!

And like all activities around here, it inevitably ended with a hose.

Blogging from the road… August 13, 2011

Filed under: General — mothersandothers @ 9:26 pm

Oh my goodness, can I really update my blog from my phone?!?!

Well this really changes my blogging game.

Maybe it’ll actually put me back in the game.

I hope you’re having a delicious summer!

We’re a-okay with our private parts (and so are our toys) May 3, 2011

“Mommy, why doesn’t this doll have any private parts?”

I knew our dolls needed an over haul after my daughter asked this question last year.

After some serious internet searching that led to some often hilarious results, I found a great new resource.

Enter this little guy (he also has a sister that has a, gasp, vagina)

What do you know, dolls that send a message that private parts are normal.

You can find them, and a host of other cool dolls at kidsandgrandkids.com

Blessings,

Shal
