Here's what Charmaine had to say about the planning:


"When Mommy Chantelle contacted me she knew exactly what she wanted to make Mikayla's party extra magical, we then worked together to make her dreams come true. It all started with 2 pictures of cakes that she wanted to combine and we styled and designed everything around the UnicornMermaid Cake and boy was it fun.

Pastel pink, purple and aqua with a splash of gold was the colors I decided to use to create a party full of detail just the way she wanted it, Mommy supplied the party packs and I added Golden Horns and flowers for a personalized effect.

Every detailed item on the candy table was made to add to the magic. Gold treasure chests filled with golden coins and candy bracelets, sea sand and chocolate shells in clear containers, fondant unicorns, chocolate coins, mermaid boxes, clam containers with pearls, mini chocolate shells, under the sea RiceKrispie treats and Oreo pops added to the magical snacks for her special day, the tables was rounded off with sea shells and unicorns which created the party of Mikayla's dreams and making all these special items was the most fun I have ever had with a Unicorn party.

For the kids tables we decided to go with clear Tiffany chairs and aqua tutus for each little mermaid that joined in the magic and each one received a unicorn notebook as a gift to write down all the special moments."

Simple Slime Recipe that Works


Are you looking for a Super Simple Slime Recipe that you can make with your kids?  One that actually works. 


Well here's how I make Slime with my kids. 


slime 4



You will need:


White Glue, Clear Glue or Glitter Glue.  I've used them all and they all worked fine. 


Slime Activator

You can make your own slime activator by mixing Half a Teaspoon Borax with a cup of water (250 ml).   That's it!


Food Colouring

Any Lotion


Simple Slime Recipe Instructions:


Depending on how much slime you want to make, you can pour the glue into a bowl.  I just poured the whole little bottle. You can even add glitter glue to the bowl of glue.  




Add food colouring and/or glitter to the mix.  You can play around with colours and ingredients to get different colour results every time. 


slime 1


Add little squirts of Activator at a time (or a teaspoon at a time) and mix with a craft stick or wooden spoon that you don't use in the kitchen.  As you stir you will see the slime slowly start to form as it will start coming together.  


slime activator


Add a little more Activator and Stir.  Repeat this step until slime is formed.


slime 2


Remove slime from bowl and knead with hands.  Add a little squirt of lotion and work it in.




Have fun with your slime. 





If you want to see a mix of slime ingredients like glue, glitter glue, glitter and foam balls, see this fun little challenge video my kids made.


You'll also see what happens to the slime if you add way too much Activator, lol.

Slime Swith or Keep Challenge




(Please ignore the bad sound quality, it was their 1st video.  I would appreciate it so much if you like their channel while you're at it - Llama vs Ddog)

 Thanks a bunch.
