Have You Tried Periscope?

By | Bible Study, Periscope | No Comments


I have found a new social media platform that I am completely in love with. It is called Periscope.

What is Periscope? Periscope is a live streaming video app where you can send out a broadcast. What makes it really amazing is the fact that while you are broadcasting, viewers can chat with you real time. It is super interactive. You can even give “hearts” to let the broadcaster know that you dig what they are saying. It’s kind of hard to explain so I thought I would share one of my “scopes” with you so you can see first hand exactly how it works.

Scented Play Dough

Scented Playdough With Printable Recipe!

young living


Back to school time means fresh supplies for teachers and homeschoolers alike. One thing we started doing a few years ago, at the beginning of each homeschool year is making our own playdough. We like to make a fresh batch so that it is ready and available for creative play time. 

Once we discovered essential oils, we thought it might also be a fun idea to make our play dough scented! Not only would it be fun to squish, but it could also smell like heaven and stimulate new senses. Not to mention, the benefits of the oils themselves. 

So, I wanted to take a sec and share my tried and true scented playdough recipe. We are actually making some of this today!

Hope you enjoy! Happy schooling!

Take a moment and hop on over to our Facebook page and let us know if you make your own scented playdough! We love to share homeschool tips and tricks as well as encourage each other over there. Come say hi!
