D.I.Y. Lego Tray for Under $10

Would you look at all of these awesome blocks that I picked up from Dollar Tree! I did not include these in the price of the tray because you may already have Legos. My kids had some Duplo blocks, but none of what I call big kid blocks.  So I was very stoked to find this at an affordable price.

My last post mentioned that we just got back from a quickation. Even though the stay was short the drive was not especially for our toddler. These trays really helped keep the kids occupied. The best part is the cost was under $20 for 2 trays.  Here is you Dollar Tree shopping list

-container w/ a lid

-lego strips

-super glue

-printed duct tape

 

Step 1:

Wipe down and dry trays.

Step 2:

Plan design for strips and use glue to secure them in place.  Make sure the strips line up precisely.  At first, I glued the container into the tray.  After traveling though I learned that with two trays it was not space saving. So I unglued the containers and will add strips to the rest of the tray that way we can stack them and place both containers inside on our next trip.

Step 3:

Now tape the outside and inside of trays so that little blocks don’t escape through the holes.  Plus it adds stylish character to the tray don’t you think?

If you are not a D.I.Y. person or just don’t have the extra time then check out this super convenient My Brik Case by ModFamily.  It has pretty good reviews and is priced decent.  So, it is up to you if you would rather play around with a custom look or simply click for an equally neat one shipped right to your door.  Either way, your kid is sure to enjoy traveling with their beloved blocks.

Until next time, take care

D.I.Y. Dry Shampoo

It is no secret that dry shampoo is a life saver for many women, but especially us moms. And sometimes we are too busy to get to the store and have to order some online while we try to hideout with our oily strands daydreaming of a nice long shower🛀 This happened to me and I came up with a hack that I will honestly use again!

All you need is a few essentials from your handy dandy makeup bag.

-translucent powder

-eyebrow shadow

-eyelash & brow wand

-flat foundation brush

First, take the wand and scrape some translucent powder onto a clean surface. Second, use the wand to scrape eyebrow shadow on the same surface. The great thing about the brow shadow is it will help blend with your natural hair color instead of making your roots dusty white. Third, blend the powders together using a foundation brush and tap off excess. Then apply to oily roots. Let sit for about half a minute then brush through.

Now you are ready to rock your day with confidence💁 You’re welcome! Hehe.
