Snow day experiment- bath bombs

When my kids tell me they have NOTHING to do, I tell them to find something or else I will find something for them which is usually chores. I am not sure if I am more annoyed or just down right jealous that “they have NOTHING to do.” That must just be such a nice feeling. I try to explain to them what a blessing boredom is because it is the base of creativity. Boredom= the freedom to do anything- write a book, make a puppet show, play outside…or pretend you are on an impromptu baking show with your mom teaching people how to make bath bombs.😜

Bath Bomb recipe:

1 cup unscented epsom salt

1 cup baking soda

1/2 cup citric acid

1/2 cup cornstarch

1/2 cup melted coconut oil

Essential oil for scent

Soap dye for color

Mix together ingredients.

Form into balls or use molds such as muffin tins and press in the dough. I do NOT recommend using a cookie scoop.

Let the bath bombs dry for about an hour so they can harden before use.

John as Stanley Cup with his Trophy Wife at the Hillbilly Half Marathon

We worked a water station for our friend’ s who manage Franklin’s Hillbilly Half Marathon here in the Nashville area. The race fell on the morning that the Nashville Predators NHL hockey team came home to defend our home ice against the Pittsburg Penguins during the 2017 Stanley Cup Finals.

Having spontaneous fun with the kids on St. Patrick’s Day

One thing that helps balance our family out from the daily grind is to come up with spontaneous skits like this. So many people are so concerned about their image on social media and what people think of them. We have found that acting silly like this keeps the kid inside of us alive and reminds us not to care so much about what others think.

Do something crazy and spontaneous with someone you love today.
