  1. Hi Justine. I'm so glad you linked up again this year, you know I love your lists! I like the ideas of giving the kids a camera to take pictures, glow stick dance party, and rainbow oobleck...all of it really.

  2. Great ideas! So what is your fairy garden and a rainbow oobleck?

  3. Rainbow oobleck should have a link so you can learn about it more. Fairy gardens are fantastic. We made one last year that you can check out.
