I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Sea Tow. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.
Growing up, I spent a lot of time on a boat. My family was big on fishing, so we’d go out on the ocean in San Diego on weekends to catch our limit of fish.
It was really fun being out there, watching schools of tuna and pods of dolphins swim by us. I love being in the middle of nature. Unfortunately, if you’re not prepared, you can get yourself in a bit of trouble.
I remember one time when our boat broke down when we were out on the ocean. That was a bit of a scary moment as I remember it was getting close to time for the sun to go down and we had to figure out how to get towed back in.
My Dad got on the radio and called for help. [click to continue…]
In my ongoing attempts to keep the girls busy this summer, we came across a tutorial showing how to make what we have dubbed “Moon Sand” from just 2 simple ingredients most household have on hand.
Last year, the girls had an entire sand table full of new sand. Throughout the year however, that sand got distributed around the yard. They love playing with sand though, so I thought this would be a fun alternative, and a cool project to do together.
We did have to go to the Dollar Tree to pick up some baby oil, but we have a stockpile of flour that needs to be used up from our food storage, so it was a really inexpensive project for us. I’m not sure if this would work with other oils, but if you give it a try with a different type of oil, let me know how it turns out.
The best part is that this stuff is supposed to keep for a long time as long as you keep it in a sealed container. Right now we have it in a gallon ziploc bag, and it seems to be doing fine.
