Wet and Wild!!!

WET AND WILD!!

Temperatures are staying pretty high down here in Miami! I love it! I love that I can tan pretty much year round.

But what do you when you wake up and little man wants to play but it is already hot out?

GET WATER BALLOONS GOING OF COURSE!

We didn’t actually use to many water balloons, I had gotten a variety pack of balloons from the Dollar Store

a while ago and decided to use the rest of them up. The others were used as a cave under our dining table (forgot to post that one!)

So I filled up probably a totally for 15 balloons, let me tell you what these things are hard to break.

We did a bullseye target, not much luck.

We tried hitting it off his T-ball tee, no luck!

We even tried to poke it with a shovel, nope!!!

I finally found a secret, throw it by where you tied it and hope it finds a small rock! hahah.

He was able to pop a few of them, but it was still fun trying new ways of popping them!

Yes he is still in his mouse ears from Disney!

Super Hero Cuffs

This post will go along with Holy Moly Batman! Let’s Mae Capes.

What cape isn’t complete with some cuffs? Well it took me long enough to make some.

We are going to Disney soon and I found a perfect shirt on clearance at Target for $2!

Only problem was that it is long sleeved.

This is our 1st trip to Disney and since we are in Miami I know that it will be warm up there if it has stayed warm there.

So the long sleeves had to go!

HELLO SHORT SLEEVES!

So after I cut off the sleeves I saved them for Super Hero Cuffs.

What you need:

  • Cut of sleeves or some fabric, jersey or knit.
  • Clear elastic
  • A shape for the cuff in coordinating fabric.
  • Coordinating thread

Step 1:

Open your fabric flat, if you an old sleeve.

Step 2:

Cut out your shape in the coordinating fabric.

I had my awesome husband draw out a lightning bolt. (One shape I am awful at drawing)

I traced it onto some freezer paper and ironed it onto the fabric and cut.

Step 3:

Sew the shape onto your cuff using coordinating thread. I always use a zig-zag stitch when sewing on appliques.

Step 4:

On the top edge of the cuff sew in clear elastic. Fold over the fabric so the elastic isn’t right up against the child’s skin.

Pull the elastic as you are sewing it in so that it will have a tighter fit and stretch.

Step 5: 

Sew up the sides (inside out) to make an actual cuff.

And you are all done!
