My mom asked me to find some kind of gift that I could make for a couple of principal friends of hers. After many days of searching and lots of screenshots sent to her we found a ribbon wreath that she liked. The ribbon wreaths we saw were school colors so that is where we began.
How To Make Ribbon Wreaths
12 inch box wreath frame
8-9 rolls of ribbon
I wasn't sure how to start tying the ribbon but found a great diagram at bfranklincrafts.blogspot.com that helped a lot. The diagram is used for different fabrics and ribbons but I used the placing per the color of ribbon I was using.
Step 1: Cut ribbon into 5-7 inch pieces. I suggest you get comfy in front of a good movie and cut until you are all out of ribbon to cut. I used a plastic container to place my ribbon in case I had to stop I could just close of the ribbon without it being all over the floor.
Step 2: I used the diagram from the above site to start typing the ribbons to the wreath.
Step 3: Keep tying until you've filled up all empty spots on the wreath placing various ribbons in different places.

My daughter can't get enough of making slime. It's everywhere. Her friends are making slime, there are slime kits everywhere and I even had my class make slime on the last day of school and it was a hit!!!
So I thought it was only right to do a post dedicated to slime!!!
I'll keep it simple to a few of my daughter's favorite slimes to make.
1. Edible Slime
It can be a little unsettling to watch your kiddo bite into slime, but let me assure you it's safe!The 3 types of edible slime below are Chocolate Slime, Kool-Aide Slime and Laffy Taffy Slime.
2. Fluffy Slime
One of the things we tend to argue about in our house about slime is where to store it. We get these great cases from Hobby Lobby that have little containers in it but the fluffy slime just won't fit. Fluffy slime is just that folks-FLUFFY!
3. Glitter Slime
As a mama the thought of glitter in any project is terrifying. Here are some slime recipes that make it easy to incorporate glitter without the scary mess.
