He-Man is the principal superhero of a series of comic books and several animated television series, characterized by his superhuman strength. In most variations, he is the alter ego of Prince Adam.Wikipedia

Having grown up with a little brother, I often found myself watching his cartoons. Funny thing is I usually liked them. He-man was one I liked a lot. Even had a toy just like the picture above. Watch video below.👇👇👇👇

Blue~ The End of The School Year

Ah, the end of the school year! Most kids are looking forward to it, but not Blue. End of the school year meant having to be stuck at home. Home, a place she feared to be alone, with her father, all summer…

School ending always meant testing and for three days now she had to take tests that were to show if she was ready to go to the next school grade or if she had learnt all that was taught. Each year at the end of the school year, it always was the same and each year, Blue did a good enough job to pass onto the next grade. This was a good thing because if she had to repeat the same grade again her parents would be angry. Testing days were the most boring and mundane things, as you can imagine. Sitting at your desk for hours and hours, only getting a few short breaks to go use the restroom or get a sip of water, and about thirty minutes for a lunch break. No talking was allowed during testing and you almost felt like you was in a prison. Each teacher stared you down from your head to your feet, watching and waiting as if they were detectives trying to see someone cheat on those tests. It was intense to say the least.

Blue was eagerly waiting for the last school bell to ring, and signal the start of the summer break. As the bell rang, she watched kids with their arms full of things leave and disperse from the school halls. The noise was loud and deafening. The chatter was a mix of happiness, fair wells, and excitement. Often that day was a happy time, but Blue had mixed emotions. She really welcomed the start of the summer break because that meant she would be free to play outside or spend time at her grandmother’s, more than during school days, and she wanted that. Sadly though, that was not all she thought about. She also knew that she would have to stay at her sister’s and then in the evening while waiting for her mother to get off from work, her father would pick her up and take her home. This would give opportunity and confrontations that she did not want, from her father.

With a mix of emotions, she still managed to smile, knowing she would have time to spend in her favorite place, the woods just outside her house. Those woods brought her so many new adventures, so many things to see and do. She really loved having that time, even if she could not stay there day and night. In the woods she felt happy. She had no reason to hide there, no reason to cry, there. The woods were a part of her life she still thinks of with fond memories. Nothing else was as special as her time there. She used that wonderful imagination she had and made a world for herself that was as special as she wanted to feel.

Ah, summer break! Into the woods she would go, to feel safe and happy.

DIY~ With Kool=Aid

Creative Ways to Use Kool-Aid

  1. Cleaning the Toilet. Who would’ve thought you can actually CLEAN with Kool-Aid? The lemonade flavored Kool-Aid contains citric acid, a substance that is great for cleaning mineral buildup. A common place this happens is the toilet. Sprinkle a packet of Lemonade Kool-Aid and scrub with a toilet brush. For hard water stains, allow the powder to sit for three minutes before scrubbing. Crazy right?
  2. Dye Yarn. You are the creator of your yarn color when it comes to Kool-Aid dye! You are able to dye white yarn any color you prefer using packets of Kool-Aid. Mix colors to get creative! Dissolve one or two Kool-Aid packs in a small bowl of water, then transfer to a larger pot of water. Bring the mixture to a boil, then remove from heat. Add the yarn and cover with a lid, allowing it to sit for 30 minutes. Rinse the yarn after 30 minutes and allow to dry!
  3. Dye Eggs. Save this idea for Easter! Kool-Aid can actually make a great egg dye! Mix one packet into ⅔ cups of water, allowing to dissolve. Use this concentrated solution to dye your eggs! Submerge egg into the colored water until the desired color is reached. My favorite trick is to use wax crayons to draw designs that do not adhere color, so cool!
  4. Make Colored Glue. Colored glue is a fun way to amp up any arts and crafts cupboard. Using regular liquid glue just got a whole lot more fun! Mix one packet of Kool-Aid into a bottle of glue and shake for a few minutes. Use the colored glue on stretched saran/plastic wrap to create window clings, so fun!
  5. Make Lip Gloss. Become your own colorist using Kool-Aid! Using whichever colors and flavors you prefer, mix Kool-Aid with a mini container of petroleum jelly. Add more Kool-Aid to the petroleum jelly for brighter or deeper colors. Heating the combination also allows the grainy particles of Kool-Aid to dissolve better. I like to mix the Cherry and Grape Kool-Aids for a rich purpley, red color. These taste, look and moisturize great! Substitute coconut oil for petroleum jelly if desired.
