DIY Pokemon Pikachu party cups

Thrifty way to save some money for a Pokemon party. Make your own DIY Pokemon Pikachu party cups.

DIY Pokemon Pikachu party cups

My son wanted a Pokemon party. Kid’s birthday parties can be so expensive. But being the thrifty lady that I am, I don’t spend a lot on them. We were able to come up with some great ideas and together we made some easy decorations and party supplies. There aren’t as many pictures as I had hoped to get but I did get to take a few.

To make these cups you will need:

yellow party cups

black sharpie

red sharpie

All you have to do is find a picture of Pikachu and copied his face with sharpie. The kids loved these cups and they were a big hit. I love doing inexpensive things like this for kid’s parties that they love and they don’t cost anything extra.

The Pikachu behind the cups is a pin the tail game that I found here and printed off at a local print shop so I didn’t use all my ink. The kids had a blast with it!

Here are the invites we used. They are a free printable we found here  and added all the party info before printing them off at the print shop too.

Kid’s parties don’t have to cost a lot to be a lot of fun for the kids.

Tie dye Shirts with sharpie markers, make Fire Work shirts for the 4th of July all you need is a sharpie, and a spraybottle #TieDie, #DIY, #Crafts, #KidsMy girls wanted to make shirts for the 4th of July, so we deiced to make Tie Dye shirts with sharpies.  Inspired from the Tie Dye shirts we made at the beach.  We did it different this time, we did not use the cups or the dropper but the basic idea is the same.

You could make flags, scarves, t-shirts, towels…. all sorts of fun ideas.  This would also be a fun project to do on the 4th in the heat of the afternoon when you are waiting for the fireworks.

Tie-Die Shirts with sharpie markers, make Fire Work shirts for the 4th of July all you need is a sharpie, and a spraybottle #TieDie, #DIY, #Crafts, #Kids

To make these all you need is:

Sharpie Makers

Rubbing Alcohol

Spray bottle

White T-shirt

Price of cardboard
Tie-Die Shirts with sharpie markers, make Fire Work shirts for the 4th of July all you need is a sharpie, and a spraybottle #TieDie, #DIY, #Crafts, #KidsI let the girls practice on strips of an old white sheet first.  So they could see which colors they liked best and how the designs would bend once you put the alcohol on them.

Tie-Die Shirts with sharpie markers, make Fire Work shirts for the 4th of July all you need is a sharpie, and a spraybottle #TieDie, #DIY, #Crafts, #KidsPut a piece of cardboard in the tshirt to stretch it out to make coloring on it easier.  This will also prevent the colors from spreading to the back of the shirt. If you don’t have cardboard you could also use a cookie sheet.

Tie-Die Shirts with sharpie markers, make Fire Work shirts for the 4th of July all you need is a sharpie, and a spraybottle #TieDie, #DIY, #Crafts, #KidsRemember that dark colors can make the pictures look “muddy or messy” if they blend together to much.  So try and use only one dark color per picture you draw.  Highlight them with as many light and bright colors as you want.

Tie-Die Shirts with sharpie markers, make Fire Work shirts for the 4th of July all you need is a sharpie, and a spraybottle #TieDie, #DIY, #Crafts, #KidsOnce you have your pictures drawn, pour rubbing alcohol into a spray bottle.  Spay the tshirt with alcohol.  The  more you put on the more the ink will spread. It will start to spread right away, but you will not see the final “blend Tie Dye look” till your shirt has dried.

If you want to set the ink, you can soak it in a Soda Ash before you draw on the shirt.    You can also heat set the ink with a iron.  Please note that once you wash the shirt it will start to fade if you do not first treat it with soda ash.

My kids are so excited about Mother’s Day, and they want to make a “project” or gift everyday to give me or their Grandma’s this weekend.  If you are looking for a fun Mother’s Day craft project for your  kids then you will love these corner book marks.

All you need is an envelope, pair of scissors, and crayons.

You need to keep the corner in tack (so when you cut it out, it creates a pocket).  Have your kids draw shapes like hearts or flowers on the corner of the envelope.  Use crayons or markers to decorate them.  Cut them out, this will create a pocket to slip the corner of the the book page into.  Simple as that you have a personalized gift for Mother’s Day.

Cloud Clay Recipe – So soft and only 2 ingredients and no cooking recipe

Fun kids craft idea

Watch our recorded Live video of making the Cloud Clay below

Cloud Clay recipe, only need two things to make this NO COOK recipe. The fastest and softest clay you will ever make #Playdough, #Clay, #DIY, #Kids

Cloud Clay Recipe

My kids love clay and play dough. I make it at home sometimes, or we buy it at the store.  BUT this recipe is like no other, and it is SO FAST and simple.  You only need two things to make it and there is NO COOKING involved.   It is the softest and easiest clay you will ever make!!!  My science project loving daughter had a blast making this recipe with her friend the other day.  It smells amazing and leaves your hands smooth and moisturized!

Please note… if you do not get enough moisture into t he dough it will be come crumbly MUCH LIKE MOON SAND.  So you might want to have them play with it outside or on a cookie sheet for QUICK and EASY clean up.

Cloud Clay recipe, only need two things to make this NO COOK recipe. The fastest and softest clay you will ever make #Playdough, #Clay, #DIY, #Kids

All you need to make this Cloud Clay is:

Corn Starch

Conditioner

Food color and glitter are optional

Cloud Clay recipe, only need two things to make this NO COOK recipe. The fastest and softest clay you will ever make #Playdough, #Clay, #DIY, #Kids

You need 2 parts corn starch to 1 part conditioner.  I used 1 cup corn starch and 1/2 cup conditioner.  Please note that the brand you use might require a little MORE or a little LESS depending on how much water is in the conditioner.    When you first start to mix it,  it will appear that it is going to be too dry.  But just keep stirring and before long you will have a soft dough formed.

If you choose to add color or glitter you can do it two different ways.

You can add it to the dough ball once it is formed and mix it in.  OR you can add it to the conditioner before you add the corn starch. I think it is easiest to add it to the conditioner … but the girls thought it was fun to add it at the end and see the “marble or stripes” it made.

Store in a ziploc bag, as the kids play with it it might dry out a little. Just knead in more conditioner to keep it soft and moist.
