DIY Edible Finger Painting & Children’s Artwork
(Kelly’s Closet Egg Hunt Giveaway)

SewFatty: DIY Edible Finger Paint www.sewfatty.com

I am always trying to find way’s to entertain my little bam bam and munchkin. We don’t really have a nice grassy area to play in, due to our grass having those little spiky poky things. Do you know what i’m talking about? They stick to your clothes, skin pretty much anything. Well our entire yard has those, so we try to keep activities indoor or sometimes spend time at the playground on base. While checking my instagram application I seen my friend @fenderkatie had just done a DIY canvas with finger painting, I thought wow what a great idea! So you know I totally had to do it.

Here is what you’ll need:

  • white canvas
  • small containers to put the colors in (I used gerber food jars since I already had them)
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1/2  or 1/4 cup of cornstarch
  • 1 Tb. of sugar
  • food coloring

Directions:

Combine water, cornstarch and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and keep on stirring until mixture thickens. Pour into small containers and add your food coloring. Simple. (*let the paint cool off before giving it to your little one) Below you will see some pictures to give you an idea.DIYkidfun

The Masterpieces!!

Overall my little love’s had so much fun, little bam bam was just sticking his fingers in all the colors. Adryana mixed all the colors apparently and made herself she said. I totally love our new artwork. They are going up on the wall as soon as they dry. *Be sure you write on the back of the canvas with the date and age of your munchkins. Now go make some masterpieces with your little munchkins. It’s fun and also perfect for easter !!!

Bamboozle Stretch Fitted Review

logo_bummis_en

Bamboozle Fitted diapers have been on my “TO TRY LIST” my son has become such a heavy wetter at night, I figured fitted’s might be the way to go for overnight diapering. I had the opportunity to review this amazing fitted cloth diaper. Here are some features and my experience with the amazing Bamboozle Stretch Fitted.

Bamboozle Features:  the super soft BAMBOOZLE is made from gorgeous stretchy rayon from bamboo. Two sizes will take you from teeny-tiny (5 lbs) right through to potty training (35 lbs).

  • Super Soft made from Stretchy Bamboo Rayon.
  • Two sizes, size 1 (5 – 18 lbs) size 2 ( 9 – 35 lbs)
  • Slim fitting with multidirectional stretch – fabulous fit every time
  • Leak-proof design with adjustable legs and waist
  • Aplix fastening (like Velcro) – just as easy as a disposable diaper!
  • Hidden microfiber core and snap-in adjustable doubler increase absorbency and speed up drying time!
  • Fabric is durable and stays really soft, even when washing with hard water <–which I have.
  • Bamboozle comes in different colors which is awesome.

Lil Bam Bam’s Stats:

  • 15 months old
  • 24 lbs.
  • Sensitive skin
  • Heavy Wetter at night
  • Average baby size he is not chubby at all, more on the lean (small waited) rapidly growing 🙂

The Bamboozle has the snap down feature on both sizes to adjust to your little ones weight. The aplix is one of the strongest aplix I have ever used. While in the wash it did not come undone once which was very surprising since all my other aplix cloth diapers do come un-done while in the wash. The Bamboo rayon is so soft I can only imagine how comfy it feels on their bum. The fit of this fitted is a nice and snug the elastic is not incased therefore it just hugs babies legs without leaving red marks. Performance wise I was able to have my son in the diaper for about 45 mins – 1 hr. without a cover. We used the bamboozle overnight from about 10pm – 6am I did get some leaks the first couple times I used the Bamboozle with a Bummis lite wrap. After finding out the leaks I decided to add a doubler at night and that worked amazing, (keep in mind my son is a heavy wetter, the Bamboozle will reach its full absorbency after 10 washes). It is a very trim fitted compared to others, after a few washes the fitted soaker got a bit fuzzy around the edges since the edges are serged the diaper has also faded quite a bit after washing and drying, the aplix is still great and again its one of the best aplix cloth diapers I have.

Overall I liked the bamboozle its a very trim fitted diaper, I love the fit, the aplix is amazing. The bamboo rayon makes this fitted diaper very soft and comfy on babies bum. One thing I would change on the diaper would just be adding more layers of absorbency I think it would be great to have two pedals of inserts instead of one. My son enjoyed being in Bamboozle diaper he seemed comfy and looked super cute.

My Newborn Registry and Stash #Giveaway

Finding out I was pregnant with baby #3 was a total surprise. First thought was “OMG I will be able to cloth diaper a newborn” yay!! My husband and I are both very excited to add on to our family. With that being said I won’t be needing much as far as essentials since my son is only 14 months so a lot of his stuff I’ve kept and will be used for our baby soon to come in April. My mom recently asked me if I wanted her to throw me a baby shower. I kindly said “no thank you mom” we are too far away and it’s just not worth it. So instead she asked  “why don’t you register for things you want and if friends and family would like to buy something they can just ship it to your address. Genius Idea !! I totally agreed with her even though I do have some things from my son its always nice to have “new” things for a new baby. So instead of a baby shower I will be registering at stores and sharing them on my personal Facebook.

My family is very supportive and have offerered to buy anything I may need for the new baby. Since they offered I will have a great stash for new baby on the way. I have already started my mini stash, I took advanatage of the Black Friday sales Kellys’s Closet had hubby bought the baby 4 lil joey’s diapers. Here is what I have so far. Not sure what I will like best, I’m just super excited to cloth diaper my son. You can never have too many diapers right ???
