How I Keep My 6 Year Old Happy with Frankincense Oil!


How I Keep My 6 Year Old Happy! 
I absolutely love essential oils!
 in exchange for this review. #RadhaFrankincense
 So, meet my son.  He is 6, and the third child.
He has a little bit of a temper...and oddly enough, 2 mosquito bites on his forehead. (lol)
If you have kiddo's, it's hard to calm them down when they are upset.
So, when I received this oil, I waited until he was grumpy to test it out.
I took him out on the patio and took this before picture.
(he was not thrilled, obvs)
 I used a drop of frankincense oil and rub it over his heart.
 And then litterally in a minute, he was not only calmed down...
but hysterically laughing!
I have never seen a child change their mood so quickly when they are upset about something.
This has been life changing for us!
Here's what the 6 year old had to say on the subject:

Glitter Painted Galaxy Shirts!

 Did you know that today is Meteor Watch Day?
Yep, every year on June 30th!
I know, there are so many crazy holidays!
 Well, to celebrate...let's make a galaxy!

Glitter Painted Galaxy Shirts!
You will need:
Black T-Shirt (100% cotton)
Tulip One Step Dye
Acrylic Craft Paint and Stencil Brush
Bleach in a spray bottle (1/2 diluted with water)
Tulip Fabric Glitter Spray

First spray bleach on garment.
I lay mine out on the back patio.
 Let the bleach work...most shirts turn orange.  Some I've done have turned white!
This is the perfect solution to the shirt that was "accidentally" bleached!
 Then put them through a wash cycle with soap.
 Fill up your tie dye bottles according to package directions...
 Remove the shirt from the wash...and while it's wet, lay it back outside.
You could put a garbage bag under it to protect the cement...but it comes off eventually!
Then swirl and splash color all over the bleached parts!
Wrap in a plastic bag for 8 hours or overnight.
 Next day, wash out the shirt in the sink until the water runs clear.
Then throw it in the washing machine with soap...and dry it.
It comes out so awesome!
Full of nebulas, galactic spiral arms...everything!
 You can leave it tie dyed and awesome...or you can paint on planets!
Now for some painting!
I used acrylic craft paint and Tulip Fabric Spray Paint Glitter!
 I used my silhouette cameo to cut clear vinyl circles we used as stencils.
And stick them right on the shirt.
Then use a stencil brush or sponge and just sponge on color!
(In my few times of painting planets, I've learned the brighter the colors, the better!)
 Then spray the fabric glitter all over the planets, the nebulas...the stars!
Add some rings to a few planets!
 It gives it a subtle sparkle!
 I am absolutely hooked on these galaxy shirts!
 It's just so fun to wear something that screams
"Yes the Universe does revolve around me!"
These shirts are "Outta this World!"
If you haven't tried this yet...what are you waiting for?
Here's more "Out of this World" Awesomeness!

Make the Galaxy revolve around you...

Doodle Mugs!

 Doodle Mugs!
These were so fun to doodle on and make a great kids craft!
 We picked up 2 white mugs at the flea market for 10 cents each.
And a Decoart Glass Paint Marker

We cleaned the mugs with rubbing alcohol and let them dry.
Then just shake up that paint marker and start doodling!
Start with the biggest designs first and then fill in with smaller ones.
 Once you are done, just bake in the oven according to the marker package instructions.
Lots of fun!
Perfect for kids to create custom works of art that don't just end up on the fridge!
Makes a great gift idea too!
