4. Sidewalk Chalk Spray

Wine and Glue has a great recipe for this that I cannot wait to try! I have spray bottles that I found at our local dollar store - for $1 each. This is on my weekend to-do list!


1 tbs flour, 10-12 drops of food coloring, and a half cup of warm water. Shake and spray!

Bubbles are always fun, but those gigantic ones? Amazing!


6 cups of water, 1/2 cup of blue Dawn dish liquid, 1/2 cup of corn flour, 1 Tbsp baking powder

To make the bubble wands, thread yarn through 2 straws. Then, tie a knot to make a large square.
