Homemade GAK

Looking for fun things to do with your kids this summer? Try this homemade GAK! Aside from making homemade play dough, making GAK is one of their favorites to make. It's easy and fun. I love that it has only 4 ingredients: glue, borax, water and food coloring.

Here's the exact measurements:

1- 8 oz glue
water - devided (1/2 cup and 1/4 cup warm water
1 tsp of Borax
food coloring


  • Mix glue and half a cup of water in a container then add your choice of food coloring.
  • Mix Borax and 1/4 cup of warm water until completely dissolved in a separate container.
  • Once Borax is dissolved mix together with your glue mixture. And mix until solid.
See how easy is that?

Kids Academy Apps Review

*Sponsored Post*

My girls are always asking me to download them new games on their iPad so I'm always looking for new ones to download. I like apps that are not only fun but also educational. These three apps are exactly that. If you have a toddler, preschooler, or a kindergartener, you should definitely check them out.

Give your preschoolers a chance to learn basic alphabet, writing and mathematics the fun way! This app immerses your child with wonderful graphics and sound, all while improving hand eye coordination necessary for you toddler's development. My 3 year old daughter loves playing with this app. She likes tracing and collecting fireflies in a jar. It's helping her improve her writing skills.

This app is created to make fun more educational! The app goes beyond simply great graphics and beautiful music by engaging children to learn preschool basics through intriguing game play. Toddlers will start with easy tracing by collecting fireflies in a jar and will move gradually to tracing requiring more developed fine-motor skills. The basic skills in this app are foundations for reading, writing and arithmetic operations. Appropriate hints are provided to support your children as they practice and build their skills.

This builds on the previous app by introducing your preschooler to writing both uppercase and lowercase letters of the alphabet. The app takes tracing to eventually writing alphabetical characters.  It also teaches your young one the sound of each characters as they are applied in words and rate's them accordingly. This app is a wonderful way of introducing children to the basics of writing and reading.  

Learning to write has never been more fun! With Montessori Worksheets for Kids Free your kids will not only learn to write letters, but will also develop good handwriting skills! The app turns the learning process into what kids love the most - a game! ---

Cute interactions, a catchy tune, and simple lyrics of this sing along music book will entertain you and your kids. With a single app you can sing and record your singing in a Karaoke session, play mini games with farm animals cards, make up and record your own stories!

Splash Math App - Makes Learning Math Fun!

This post was created in partnership with Mom Buzz Media and StudyPad Inc. All opinions expressed are my own.

I'm always looking for fun and educational apps for my girls especially for my 3 year old who's just learning her numbers and letters. Recently we downloaded Splash Math on their iPads. We downloaded both versions one for Preschool & Kindergarten and one for Grades 1 to 5.

The Preschool & Kindergarten Splash Math is perfect for my 3 year old. She's been playing with this app since we downloaded it last week. She's practicing counting skills, addition, subtraction, measuring and other math skills without knowing it. To her, it's all fun and games. Her favorite is counting and dragging the correct number to the right box. She get's so excited every time she gets it right and says "I did it!" She calls this app Hippo game.

The Splash Math - Grades 1 to 5 app is great for both Emma (she's 5) and Olivia (she's 7). It has lots of fun and interactive math problems aligned to Common Core Standards. Some of my favorite features of this app is that it gives explanation for wrong answers, it has scratchpad for rough work, and you can monitor progress with real-time progress dashboard. It even has rewards program. I love that it grows with your child. All my girls will be able to use this app for many years. The free version is limited to 20 questions a day so we are thinking of upgrading to their paid version.
