Toothbrushes, Kids & an Idea

Toothpaste…Toothbrushes…KID’S BATHROOM—-EWWW!

With 5 kids sharing a bathroom things can get a bit sticky and messy in there. I am always trying to find products to help keep it organized and neat. As I have stated before Pinterest is my go-to website for ideas for all rooms in my house. This idea I am sure can be found on their…though haven’t looked but this one came to me in Walmart!

The girls got new toothbrush from RADIUS and new toothpaste from Xlear  (be sure to look for their reviews coming soon) and where to put them was the problem. Not sure about your kids, but my girls will use their toothbrushes no matter where they find them on the sink or how chewed up the bristles are. So I wanted to come up with an idea that would help with the “Where is my toothbrush?” and the “HEY, that is my toothpaste” crisis.

While in Walmart I was passing by the party supply section gazing at all the plastic party cups, when the idea struck me! Off I ran to the craft section and found Velcro, on sale too. After getting the supplies I came home and within minutes the girl’s new organized space was created.

After I lined up the opposite side of the Velcro on the bathroom wall right above the corner of the bathroom sink, I stuck the cup up there and inside I added their new toothbrushes and their own toothpaste. Boy were they so thrilled and been using it daily since. To clean the cups I take them off the wall and rinse them out, dry and hang back up! Quick, Easy and Neat! LOVE IT! I can always switch out the cups when they get to beat up or new favorites are sold!


I thought about doing the same for the boys, and still may but for now just the girls have their own Bathroom Cup Organizer!

Hallway Bowling Alley!

We all know the wonders of Washi Tape and the millions of things you can do and create using it. Well today I made my girls an indoor Bowling Alley with some washi tape and 30 empty rolls of toilet paper (sounds like that would of taken awhile, but in a house of 7 — and a 5 year old who uses “can I go to the bathroom” as an escape method from EVERYTHING…didn’t take long)


Once we saved up 30 (above was the beginning) it was time to decorate!


The girls each were given 10 “PINS” to color and draw on with Crayons!

Now the Lane!

Hard to see the outline tape and triangles (should of stuck with the hot pink–but those are the “guides”)


Megan’s 10 Pins all ready to be knocked down! They used a baseball at the “bowling ball”



Good Old Science Project–The Changing Colors of Celery


Science Craft for Preschool Kids! Here’s a science craft for preschool kids. Megan can’t wat to see the colors come through. We add ne stalk to one glass 3/4 of the way filled with food colored dyed water and watched as each day they would slowly change. The girls had fun guessing which would change all the first!
