4th of july crafts for kids

PIN IT here.

My kids are counting down the days till July 4th is here and they can go to the parade, enjoy the BBQ and see the fireworks at night.  To add a little sparkle to our house the girls and I made some FireWorks crafts.  This was a low cost craft that was quick and easy as well.

You can use what ever supplies you have around your house.  We used

  • Toilet paper rolls
  • Red and blue paper
  • 4th of July themed napkins, you could also use scrapbook paper
  •  Pipe cleaners
  • Tape, scissors

We wrapped the toilet paper rolls in the napkins, and then taped them into place.  Next we took half a sheet of paper and made cuts all the way down the side to create a fringe look.  I layered the red on top the blue  then rolled it up and placed it inside the tube.  This makes it look like the firework is going off.  I then taped that into place on the inside of the tube so it would not fall out.

Next add the pipe cleaners.  First we put them in straight but they did not look very good, so then we twisted them around our fingers to give them a spiral look.  We hooked some stars on top with glue and then stuck then into the middle of the firework. Just like that you are DONE, my girls had a lot of fun making these.

Best part is I can toss them after the 4th and not feel bad…. after all we can just make them again next year.

Nu Skin Toothpaste Review

A bright white smile is an attractive feature to have. So as you know many of us try tips, tricks and products to try and achieve a sparkly white mouth.   About 5 months ago my social media news feed started filling with before and after photos of bright white teeth.  Since I sometimes review products my inbox was also filled with requests to try this new amazing Nu Skin Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste.

You can sign up to sell Nu Skin Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste at no cost and you can earn about $10 off each tube you sell. So there is a great profit to be made.  But the burning question was DOES IT WORK?  Sorry, but since photo shop and filters came out I trust a before and after photo, about as much as I trust a politicians speech.  Show me all the photos you want, I will believe it when I see it for myself.

I did however have a close friend start selling it, so I bought a tube for $20 to see what all the hype was about. Figured doing a Nu Skin Toothpaste Review, and finding out if it REALLY worked would be a good blog post. PLUS if it really worked I planned to sign up and sell it myself, after all a $10 commission sounded like a sweet deal.

So here is the burning question… Does Ne Skin Toothpaste really work???

First let me say the things I liked about it. It taste good, it was nice and creamy and did a great job of getting my teeth clean. It did not hurt my gums or leave my teeth sensitive like other whitening products might.  It comes in a nice container that is easy to apply.  So if you are looking for a good toothpaste and don’t mind forking out $20 a tube then this is the toothpaste for you.

However in my Nu Skin Toothpaste Review, I found ZERO results. I used it everyday for 2 month. I took a before and after photo and saw no improvement. In fact my after photo my teeth looked more yellow than my first photo lol.  After the first month I was told to try and not use any water when brushing my teeth, to try and get direct application on my teeth. I tried that and still felt I had no change.  This was my personal experience, so your story may be different than mine.

I have been told it works best on yellowed teeth from tea, coffee and smoking stains found on teeth. Since I am not willing take on those habits to accommodate another review…. for the time being I will just let you know that for me personally my results were not very impressive.  Dang, I was looking forward to a $10 a tube commission 😉 lol.

As stated above, I bought this product myself and all opinions are my own.

The real question is,  did they keep the water out and keep my kids feet dry?  YES, they worked like a charm.

The loops on the top make it super easy to slip them on.
