Have you ever seen Princess Diaries? If so, think back to the scene where Mia and her mom are in their house, throwing darts at paint-filled balloons, letting off some serious steam. Did anyone else feel insanely jealous of them?! I know I totally did. Well, I have now added this activity to my summer bucket list, and I think you should, too! This is how you play “Paint Balloon Darts”.61cd4d6970b2e55742d48860371f5976

You just need some water balloons, some washable paint, darts, and a canvas or wooden back board! Fill a bottle
with a narrow tip with paint and use it to fill your balloons. Fill them up about ¼ of the way, and then tie them off. Use pushpins to attach them to your wooden backboard or canvas. After you have done so, stand back and let ‘er rip! You can have a group of people split into teams and compete to see which group can bust more balloons than the other, or you can just toss the darts for fun! If you use a canvas, you can save it and it can be a fun art piece!

I hope you ladies can use this fun game to let off some steam this summer just like Mia Thermopolis, Princess of Genovia, did. 😉

XOXO, Chels

           Chelsea Crockett - Picture Cork BoardIf you’ve ever seen Pottery Barn, you’ll know that all of their merchandise is fun and creative, but don’t forget a little pricey!  One of their products is a photo cork board, such as the one on the left.  Most people don’t want to pay for things that they can easily make at home.  That being said, here’s a short tutorial on a DIY picture cork board!

            First off, you’ll need to determine how big you want your board, depending on the size of the wall you put it on.  Here’s what you need for one such as the board above!  First, find nine small squares of cork board.  Keep in mind the size of your wall!  You’ll need to go to your nearest craft store such as Hobby Lobby for example.  Then, pick out nine colors or patterns of cloth that will look best in your room!  Make sure you get the right sized cloth to glue onto your cork.  Once you get home, I suggest taking a hot glue gun to glue your cloth and cork together.  Then, ask a parent, or someone who is good with a saw, to cut a piece of thin plywood the size that you need.  Remember to leave room for your frame.  After, take your nine material cork squares and glue them to the plywood in whatever order you want.  Last, cut some trim to frame the outside of your patterned board.  Make sure to use a strong glue to glue it on.  There are many ways to hang your board on your wall.  Ask help from a parent for which way is best.  Then add as many photos or decorations as you want!  Enjoy!

Love, Chelsea

Along with warm weather and hours of sunshine, summer brings along an endless amount of yummy, seasonal treats!  Although you can eat it year-round, ice cream tastes best when you’re by the pool or at a carnival.  Summer is also a time to show your creative side and try new things.  So why not try whipping up your own batch of ice cream?Chelsea Crockett - Ice Cream

          Homemade ice cream is pretty simple to make.  Plus, it provides an activity for you and your friends to do at home!  To make this happen, you’ll need 1 cup of milk, a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 4-6 tablespoons of rock salt, 2 trays of ice cubes, a small amount of butter, and 5 teaspoons of flavored syrup.  If you prefer chocolate ice cream, then add one tablespoon of cocoa powder.  To start off, take a quart-sized plastic bag and pour in the sugar, flavoring, and milk.  Then you’ll need your rock salt and ice, preferably crushed.  Put these into a gallon-sized bag and place your quart-sized bag into this one.  For fifteen to twenty minutes, gently shake and message the bag.  After this, remove the ice cream and enjoy!
