  • Gum Ball Paint

    Playing with your food is always fun… often frowned upon… but always fun. In my opinion, playing with candy is the ultimate fun when it come to food playing. It’s so bright, colorful and sweet. Well, other day my pet unicorn, Sprinkles, and I went to the candy shop in town. We got all sorts of fun stuff! I didn’t realize on our walk home that there was a small hole in my bag. I began to notice that my bag was getting lighter, and turned around to see some of my gum balls had fallen onto the ground and rolled into a puddle. I was really bummed… until I walked over and saw what had happened in the puddle. The gum balls began to bleed colors in the puddle and made the water rainbow colors. I kicked one of the gum balls out of the puddle and onto the sidewalk. It made a beautiful marbled streak as it rolled around and eventually landed in the grass. Needless to say that Sprinkles and I hurried home with our remaining gum balls to make some beautiful gum ball art.

  • Magic Marshmallow Paint

    Having a pet unicorn is just as it sounds…. magical. Sprinkles, teaches me all sorts of super fun things from her “hometown” in the Cotton Candy Kingdom. Recently I posted a project called Hot Chocolate Paint. If you have not tried it already, you totally should! In it, I shared what paints are made from in the Cotton Candy Kingdom. I love that Sprinkles grew up painting with candies. I asked her it we could try out her recipe for white paint, as I had a a couple packs of Jet-Puffed Marshmallows at our house. She told me that we could make a whole pant set out of marshmallows because it’s a white base and we could add our own colors. I was sold.

  • Hot Chocolate Paint

    I am sure that if you are a frequent reader of this blog, the fact that I love painting is no surprise to you. I just love it. In fact– there are few things I love more than applying paint to a brand new blank canvas. Well, that’s what I thought… until Sprinkles took to me to the Cotton Candy Kingdom to visit her parents and I saw how they paint. Are you ready for this?… In the Cotton Candy Kingdom, the citizens use candy to make paints. I know. Amazing. They mix the candies with a little unicorn magic, of course- but I still think it’s crazy cool. Here is a list of their colors:

  • Blizzard Paint

    I loved making snowmen as a child. Ok, you got me… I still love it. I am not going to lie though… I would get pretty sad when the sun would come out and melt my hard work and frozen friend.

    Last year I took Sprinkles (my pet unicorn) out to build her first snowman. It was fabulous. I am pretty sure we spent a full two hours perfectly crafty and styling him. The next morning we came out to find a puddle, with a hat and scarf sitting in the middle. I think a squirrel may have eaten his carrot nose. Sprinkles was devastated. I guess I didn’t give her enough warning on what happens to snowmen. All of a sudden she pointed her horn at the ground and zapped it. It turned into a sparkly foamy substance. “It’s Blizzard Paint.” she said. Boom.

  • Sizzle Paint

    You guys, not many people know this… but my pet unicorn, Sprinkles, has a huge science fascination. I guess it makes sense, as she she is magic… so science must seem out of this world to her. Well, Tuesday nights she sneaks off to her hometown in the Cotton Candy Kingdom and meets up with her Science Club. Yes, Science Club… a club full of magical and mythical creatures, who get together, to talk about things like carbon dating, the periodic table, formulas…. you know, all the stuff that they don’t really need to worry about because they can fly, grant wishes, and basically do anything that they want, with no physical forces or science stopping them in anyway. But hey– I am 28 years old and still listen to the Jonas Brothers on a regular basis, so who am I to judge? read more
