Disney Inspired Slime: Toy Story Little Green Men Slime + Toy Story 4 Trailer

We have more Disney inspired slimes and MORE Toy Story slimes! Don’t tell me that you missed our Toy Story Woody slime?! If you did, don’t worry you can check it out here.

Isn’t it the cutest? Well, yes, but our newest Toy Story inspired slime is pretty cute! I love the Little Green Men (“oooohhh the claw”) from the movies. And I couldn’t imagine having a Toy Story set of slimes without including them!

Before I share the tutorial on how to make alien slime, I HAVE to share with you more trailers from Disney’s Toy Story 4!

Toy Story is full of iconic characters who lovingly make reappearances throughout the movies. Toy Story 4 brings in a few new characters too! Woody’s journey in “Toy Story 4” includes a visit to a carnival where he meets Ducky and Bunny, two carnival prizes who are eager to be won. But when their plans are rudely interrupted by Woody and his friends, they find themselves on an unexpected adventure with a group of toys who have no idea what it feels like to be tacked to a prize wall.

Toy Story 4 is set to release June 21 2019!

If you are getting yourself ready like I am by watching all of the old Toy Story movies or if your kiddo is having a Toy Story party then this new Little Green Men slime is perfect for you!

A few things before you start:

  • These are hands down the best containers for slime! Inexpensive and abundant. Plus a great size!
  • We use Elmer’s Glue with all of our recipes. Different glues may take different amounts of ingredients.

Toy Story Alien Slime supplies:

How to make Toy Story Alien Slime:

  1. In a container, pour 5 oz clear glue.
  2. Add 1/2 cup water and stir until the glue is completely broken down with the water.
  3. Add in your coloring. I used soap colorant in kiwi. I love using soap colorants! They are skin safe, don’t color your hands and available in a lot of different colors!
  4. Pour in some green glitter. I wanted a subtle glitter look so I used an extra fine green glitter. Mix well.
  5. Mix in 1/2 tsp of baking soda. Baking soda is going to determine the thickness of your slime.
  6. Add in a little less than 1 tbsp of contact solution (we use the saline solution just from Walmart!) and mix. It will begin to thicken instantly. Just keep stirring! I let mine sit for a minute to let the activator really get working.
  7. When it pulls away from the bowl, pull it out and knead. It may be sticky still. Knead it for a few minutes and if necessary add a little bit more contact solution. Be careful not to over activate it!
  8. Put in your slime container and add 3 googly eyes to the top.
  9. Cut a strip of blue construction paper to add to the slime container. I just taped mine in place.

There you go! Isn’t it adorable? Don’t forget to pin and to check out the new Toy Story 4 movie in theaters this June!

Toy Story Wood Inspired Slime + Toy Story 4 Teaser Trailer

YOU.GUYS. 2019 is looking to be an insane year for Disney. And just released, Toy Story 4!! If you are like me, the rest of the world and even director Josh Cooley, then you thought the end had already come and gone. Like most people, I assumed that ‘Toy Story 3’ was the end of the story,” said director Josh Cooley. “And it was the end of Woody’s story with Andy. But just like in life, every ending is a new beginning. Woody now being in a new room, with new toys, and a new kid, was something we have never seen before. The questions of what that would be like became the beginning of an entertaining story worth exploring.”

Everyone will be meeting again in Bonnie’s room including a new toy (who doesn’t think he’s a toy…) named Forky!

Woody has always been confident about his place in the world and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that’s Andy or Bonnie. But when Bonnie adds a reluctant new toy called “Forky” to her room, a road trip adventure alongside old and new friends will show Woody how big the world can be for a toy. Directed by Josh Cooley (“Riley’s First Date?”) and produced by Jonas Rivera (“Inside Out,” “Up”) and Mark Nielsen (associate producer “Inside Out”), Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” ventures to U.S. theaters on June 21, 2019.

To celebrate I have something AMAZING for you. Now, I have searched on Google, Pinterest and YouTube and I can’t find anything out there when it came to Toy Story Woody Slime. So, I took it upon myself to make it for you all. This would be THE cutest activity to go with your Toy Story movie marathon or getting ready for the new movie! Or if you are hosting a Toy Story party – these are adorable party favors or activities!

Before we start with our Toy Story Woody Slime a few important things:

  • You can get bandannas on Amazon! This is a really adorable way to complete the look of your Woody slime. Plus, if you are doing for party favors or an activity it is a great way to ‘gift’ a great Woody accessory!
  • I used acrylic paint for this project. Don’t worry, it doesn’t stain your hands! Paints are a great way of getting the perfect shade you are looking for.
  • We used these containers for our slime! Pack of 50 and inexpensive? Yes please.
  • Download our Woody Badges here! Print and top your slime containers!

To make the Toy Story Woody Slime you will need:

  • 5 oz clear glue*
  • 1/2 cup water*
  • Yellow Paint
  • Blue Paint
  • Yellow Glitter
  • Blue Glitter
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda *
  • 1 tbsp contact solution *
  • Western flatback buttons (optional – out of the set I used the boot and badge. I found mine at Hobby Lobby. No Hobby Lobby? You can use these!)
  • 1 slime container
  • 1 Woody Badge (see above to download)
  • 1 red bandanna

* You will need 2 of each of these supplies

How to make Toy Story Woody Slime:

  1. Pour 5 oz of glue in a container.
  2. Add 1/2 cup water and stir until the glue is broken down.
  3. Add a squirt of blue paint and stir.
  4. Pour in blue glitter and stir again.
  5. Add 1/2 tsp of baking soda and stir. The baking soda is going to determine the thickness of your slime.
  6. Add 1 tbsp of contact solution and stir. It will instantly begin to form. Continue to stir until it pulls away from the container.
  7. Knead the slime – it will be sticky at first. If needed, add a bit of contact solution. Contact solution will determine how sticky it is. It is easy to over activate so be careful!
  8. Repeat the process, this time with yellow paint and glitter.
  9. Swirl the two together.
  10. Put into a container.
  11. Tie a bandanna around it.
  12. Add charms (if using) and the Sheriff’s star.

Ta da!

Once you begin mixing your slime, it will turn colors so be sure not to over mix before adding to your container.

It ends up being a nice green color. Think Rex color!

This is just the first of our Toy Story slimes! Be on the look out for our Buzz Lightyear Galaxy slime, our camo toy soldier slime, the Little Green Men alien slime and SO many more! Not to mention our other Disney slimes that go with movies like The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Frozen …. and the list goes on and on!

Chocolate Scented Birthday Cake Slime

Happy birthday! Not your birthday? Well, you might be ready to celebrate after this scented chocolate birthday cake slime! It’s fluffy, smells like chocolate and covered with ‘sprinkles’.

It’s no surprise that we make a LOT of slime around here. But we also give a lot of slime as gifts! They are simple, not expensive and kids love them! Whether you make the slime to celebrate a birthday or give for a gift this scented chocolate birthday cake slime is always a hit!

This slime is super stretchy, very soft and fluffy and best of all… scented! That’s right, it smells like real chocolate! And while it smells like chocolate and looks like a cake batter, remember that it is not for eating.

A few things before we get started. There are a few special supplies that you will need:

  • Glue – This recipe uses plain, white glue. We use Elmer’s glue. Other glues should work, but we have best results with Elmer’s. All of the ingredient measurements are made with this glue. It sounds crazy but different brands of glue sometimes have different measurements of the slime ingredients. If your kiddos go through a lot of slime (and who doesn’t?) the gallons are definitely the best way to go! There are two packs available online too. If you are planning on giving slime as a gift, bundling it with a gallon of glue makes for a fantastic, inexpensive gift.
  • Saline Solution – We’ve tried several different contact solutions, but this one always works best for us. Bonus: It’s the cheapest. If you have a Walmart near you, I would get it there as it is much more expensive online (which is weird!).
  • Foam Beads – These are our ‘sprinkles’. These beads can be used to make floam or a crunchy slime too. Fun, fun, fun.
  • Chocolate fragrance oil – YUM. This smells just like chocolate! If you have a mini-slime master, you may want to pick up a variety pack of fragrance oils. This variety pack has the chocolate in it. This company has SO many awesome scents to chose from.

Here is what you will need to make our scented chocolate birthday cake slime:

How to make our scented chocolate birthday cake slime:

  1. In a bowl, measure out 1 cup white glue.

  2. Add 1 cup shaving cream. Shaving cream is a little funky to measure so a little extra won’t hurt it! 🙂

  3. Mix together and add 1 cup of foaming hand wash.
  4. Mix well. Your slime should be super foamy.

  5. Add in brown paint until you get the perfect chocolate color.

  6. Add in 1 tsp of cornstarch and about 1 tsp of body lotion. These will help your slime stretch and be fluffy.

  7. Drop a few drops of chocolate fragrance oil in. Your slime will smell just like a delicious cake – and it looks like a fluffy blob of icing! While it smells and looks, make sure it is not tasted!
  8. Pour in a few multi-colored foam beads. You don’t want a ton as these are just the ‘sprinkles’ and don’t want it to turn into a crunchy slime or foam but add to your heart’s desire. They will be hard to see, but when your slime ‘stretches’

  9. Next add in ¾ – 1 tsp of baking soda. (Start with ¾ of a tsp and add more during kneading if you need to. Baking soda is what will thicken your slime up.)

  10. Finally, add in contact saline solution. Start with 1 tbsp. If you need to add a bit more, you can. Saline solution makes the slime less sticky. You will know you have enough when the slime pulls away from the side of the bowl.
  11. Knead the slime.

  12. Sprinkle foam beads on top.
  13. Store in an airtight container.

This scented chocolate birthday cake slime is one of my kids favorites to make and play with. I can’t wait for you to try making it at home!

Apple Slice Doughnuts – Healthy Fun Snack Ideas

Apple Slice Doughnuts - Healthy Fun Snack Ideas

Doughnuts or apple slices….our kids go for the doughnuts first every time. Ok, I go for the apple slices every time too. I don’t know what it is, but there is just something about a yeast doughnut, dipped in chocolate frosting with sprinkles on it. I just can’t resist!

The other day, I was trying to think up a funny prank to pull on the kids. (Because I’m evil.) They had been complaining about our lack of doughnuts lately. So I decided to make some ‘doughnuts’.

Apple Slice Doughnuts - Healthy Fun Snack Ideas

Why I love these apple slice doughnuts:

  • They were easy.
  • They were fast.
  • They were really yummy.
  • They totally worked! The kids really thought they were doughnuts!

So whether you want to make these fun treats as a trick (they would be perfect for April Fool’s Day!) or for a fun treat…I highly recommend them!

A few quick things before I show you the how to.

This apple corer would have been useful and made them look a lot nicer. I bought one for next time, plus, just to use when we are doing apples. (I’m totally thinking of filling an apple with caramel. Just saying…)

These can be made in advance. Just put them on a baking sheet and keep them in the refrigerator. What a fun healthy treat for a party!

Apple Slice Doughnuts - Healthy Fun Snack Ideas

Here is what you will need to make apple slice doughnuts:

  • Apples
  • Whipped Cream Cheese
  • Nutella
  • Food Coloring
  • Sprinkles

Apple Slice Doughnuts - Healthy Fun Snack Ideas

Here is how you make the apple slice doughnuts:

Apple Slice Doughnuts - Healthy Fun Snack Ideas

If you have an apple corer, core the apples. If not, you can use a knife.

Apple Slice Doughnuts - Healthy Fun Snack Ideas

Add a bit of whipped cream cheese to a small bowl. Tint the cream cheese whatever color you want your frosting colors to be. It is super important to use the whipped cream cheese to get the frosting texture.

For a chocolate doughnut, use Nutella.

Spread the cream cheese (or Nutella) on the apple slice. Shake a few sprinkles on top.

DIY Unicorn Planters With Magical Cactus Horns

DIY Unicorn Cactus PlantersDIY Unicorn Planters with Magical Cactus Horns

I used to think that unicorns were mythical creatures that were only heard of, but never seen. However lately, they have been taking over our house….primarily our daughter’s room. It’s apparently a unicorn playground. The most recent inhabitants are these sweet unicorn planters…complete with magical cactus horns.

DIY Unicorn Planters with Magical Cactus Horns

Ok, so maybe these unicorns didn’t just appear, but we made them. This was such a fun project! Our daughter was able to create it by herself and there is such a huge variety of ways to decorate them so they are just like real unicorns – magical and unique!

DIY Unicorn Planters with Magical Cactus Horns

Just like you can decorate each pot uniquely, the different cacti, oh sorry, unicorn horns that you can get are also super unique. This was one of our daughter’s favorite parts I think. We went through all of the cactus plants searching for the perfect ones! (And bonus: I’ve heard that cactus plants are hard to kill…which means yay! No green thumb required!)

Want to make your own DIY Unicorn Planter? Here’s how!

DIY Unicorn Planter Supplies:

DIY Unicorn Planters with Magical Cactus Horns

DIY Unicorn Planter Instructions:

DIY Unicorn Planters with Magical Cactus Horns

Paint your pot and base white. While the paint is still dry, sprinkle it with glitter. Paint dries SUPER fast on terra cotta so you will have to work in small sections. Once everything is glittered, spray with your sealer if you are using one. Set aside until it is dry.

The fun part! Decide how you are going to decorate.

We did one with just tulle and one with tulle and flowers.

If you are going to use flowers, smaller flowers are the easiest to work with!

Rhinestones would be another fun idea to try! Hot glue your decorations on.

Using a fine tip brush, paint on the unicorn’s eyes and lashes. Cut out two ear shapes of white foam. Out of the pink foam, cut out two inner ears and glue to the center of the white foam ears.

DIY Unicorn Planters with Magical Cactus Horns

Hot glue your ears to the inside of the pot where desired.

DIY Unicorn Planters with Magical Cactus Horns

Once the glue is dry, fill the pot with potting soil and add your cactus horn. Be careful! Don’t get poked!

Ta da! Aren’t they adorable? Super magical!

Mary Poppins Party Idea – Spoonful of Sugar Cake Pops

Mary Poppins Party Idea – A Spoonful of Sugar Cake Pops

If you were to ever ask me what my favorite movie was, I would have to tell you that there were actually two. In no particular order, I would have to tell you Mary Poppins and Beauty and the Beast. I thought last year, with Beauty and the Beast being recreated that dreams were coming true.

And then.

Then, I got the news that so was Mary Poppins!! Wait, what?!?

In the sequel, which arrives in theaters this Christmas, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives.

MARY POPPINS RETURNS stars Emily Blunt as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure; Lin-Manuel Miranda as her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London; Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks; Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks; and Julie Walters as the Banks’ housekeeper Ellen; with Colin Firth as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank’s William Weatherall Wilkins; and Meryl Streep as Mary’s eccentric cousin, Topsy.

The film also introduces three new Banks’ children played by Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and newcomer Joel Dawson. Angela Lansbury appears as the Balloon Lady, a treasured character from the PL Travers books and Dick Van Dyke is Mr. Dawes Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth’s character.

Are you excited yet?!

I may have been a little excited because the other day I got in the kitchen to whip up a Mary Poppins style dessert for our kids as we settled down to watch the original. What better for a dessert than a spoonful of sugar?

Now, listen. Dustin and I own our own business. We have five kids. Some days I’m doing amazing to just get kids showered, off to school and fed for the day. Forget about dessert. So when I say these are easy to make. I mean, heck, even I can make them.

You Will Need

Mix your cake mix according to your package instructions.

Bake the cake and let it cool completely. In a large bowl, crumble the cake.

Add in the frosting. I use a traditional creamy buttercream frosting. I haven’t tried making it with the whipped frosting, so I can’t tell you how it affects the texture. Mix together thoroughly.

Lay a piece of wax paper on a cookie sheet. Roll small cake balls and place on your sheet. These cake pops are going to have to be a smaller pop in order to fit into your spoon. Place the sheet in the freezer for about 20 minutes until they are set.

(Hint: If your cake mix is hard to roll, place the bowl in the freezer for a few minutes!)

In a small bowl, melt the candy melts according to the package directions. Dip one of your cake pops into the white candy coating.

You want it to be evenly coated, but not dripping.

Add the sugar sprinkles and place back on the cookie sheet.

In your plastic spoon, place a drop of the white candy coating and before it hardens, place your cake pop. Put the spoons on your baking sheet and freeze for a few minutes until it can set. (It won’t take long!)

Sweet. Fun. Spoonfuls of sugar. Literally!

DIY Instagram Coasters – Perfect Gift Idea!

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.#SaveYourMemories#CollectiveBias

Do you have your gifts all picked out yet? If not, don’t worry! I have a great DIY project for you that is not only beautiful, but they are so personal! They completely qualifiy as the perfect gift idea, because it’s a useful, practical way to showcase important moments. What could it be? DIY Instagram coasters!

Instagram Coasters

This project is inexpensive, quick and really, really, really easy. In fact, the hardest part is picking out your favorite photos! My younger brother recently took a trip to England with his college. I’m guilty of not printing out my photos as often as I should. I have photos saved on phones, Instagram accounts, and on memory cards still loaded in the camera. And I know that if I have stored photos that my brother definitely has some stored photos! So I really wanted to get some in a place that he can show them off, help remember his trip and have something useful. (You know, to help protect all of that really nice, garage sale and taken from your mom’s basement college furniture…) 🙂

Instagram Coasters

So you only need a few supplies – tile coasters, furniture pads, Mod Podge and a foam brush. Oh and an awesome printer!

Instagram Coasters

The HP Envy 4512 All-in-One Printer/Copier/Scanner is an all in one printer, scanner, copier and it did an awesome job printing out some of my brother’s Instagram photos!

Instagram Coasters

I mean look at this! It did a great job printing off these really important photos. I couldn’t be happier!

Instagram Coasters

After your photos are printed, trim them to fit your coasters.

Instagram Coasters

Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge directly to the coaster.

Instagram Coasters

Add your photos and let dry. Gosh, don’t the photos look great? I know as soon as he opens them, he’s going to instantly recognize the photos as ones he took on his trip!

Instagram Coasters

Add a layer of Mod Podge on top of the photos and let dry. This will help seal the photos and make sure that the ink doesn’t bleed from condensation from the glasses.

Instagram Coasters

Once they are dry, add the furniture pads to the bottom of the coaster.

Instagram Coasters

Ta da! That’s it! You are done! I told you, crazy easy!

Instagram Coasters

I was so thrilled with how the coasters for my brother turned out that I couldn’t wait to show them to my friend when she came over later that night. She loved them too and wanted to make a set for herself! She said her printer wasn’t nearly as good as my printer so she printed her photos that day from my house. Not only is the quality great from this printer, but it has a great design and a wonderful touch screen that walks you through processes and gives you great control. She called me from Walmart after she left my house to tell me she was buying her own printer and kicking her old printer to the curb. It’s seriously that good!

Instagram Coasters

I just know that once you try it you will love it as much as we did!

Then you can make a set of DIY Instagram Coasters for yourself and to give as gifts! You can even print out some gift tags here!

DIY Marble Mug

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Folgers for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

November is here and I can’t believe it. Fall is officially making way for winter and that means a few things. One, I’m looking at getting my Christmas list going. And two, I’m looking for my coffee mug! I think it might be a scientific fact that the more the thermometer dips down, the more I fill my coffee cup up! Today’s project was inspired by both of those things! That and the amazing lunch I had a few weeks ago at Trader’s Point Creamery with the awesome people of Folgers!

I was tickled when I got invited to come have lunch and meet with the Folgers team. It was totally the perfect coffee day – cold and rainy.

So why were we meeting with Folgers? Because Indianapolis is one of only three areas that are test markets for this really awesome new product called Folgers Perfect Measures. (Currently it is also available in St. Louis and Kansas City.) So basically, I’m thrilled to introduce this to y’all!

I really think this product is super smart. No more measuring (and in my case, spilling) and it’s so easy to customize. Want a stronger coffee? No problem! Just add an extra tab.

Tab? Yes tabs! Your favorite coffee that you have grown to love now comes in tab. No measuring. No mess. With your automatic drip coffee maker, just place your tabs in a coffee filter. Add your water and brew your perfect pot. One tab is the same as one scoop so it’s super easy to get used to. You can get the Fogers Perfect Measures in 5 flavors: 100% Columbian, Breakfast Blend, Classic Roast, Classic Decaf and Black Silk.

I was so inspired by this totally awesome, new way to brew, I thought I needed a new coffee mug to go with it. It needed to be just as easy to make as the Folgers Perfect Measures was! And it needed to be adorable. I wanted something that would make a cute gift. (And what better to give with a coffee mug but a container of Fogers coffee!)

These marble mugs are just the thing. A truly personalized, perfect cup! The mugs themselves cost only about $1-2 and just a few minutes to make, but look completely high end.

Here is what you need:

  • A Ceramic Coffee Mug (I bought one at our local dollar store to use)
  • A large mixing bowl (I bought one at our local dollar store to use)
  • Warm water
  • Nail Polish (I only used two colors, but use whatever colors and however many you want!)
  • A toothpick
  • Wax Paper

Here is how you make them:

  1. Fill the bowl with warm water.

  2. Slowly pour in the first color of nail polish. You want to pour it pretty close to the water’s edge, otherwise the drops will sink to the bottom.

  3. Add in your second color of polish the same way.

  4. Use a toothpick and swirl the colors together.

  5. Dip the mug at an angle into the water. You don’t need to submerge the mug. The polish should want to just cling to it.

  6. Set the mug upside down on the wax paper to dry.

(*Note: I have been putting my mug on the top rack of the dishwasher and not had a problem, but if you are worried about it then just be sure to hand wash it!)

Once your mug is dry, fill with your favorite Folgers Perfect Measures coffee! Or wrap it up and give it along with a container of Folgers coffee for the perfect gift.

Don’t forget to be on the look out in a Kroger or Marsh store near you for the new Folgers Perfect Measures Coffee! Ditch the mess, a brew up your perfect cup to drink out of your new perfect mug!
