5 Father’s day gift ideas!

made on 6-17-2021

**If you are my dad- please don’t read this until after father’s day 😀**

Hey there, it’s me again! Today I am going to be giving you guys some father’s day gift ideas! Lets’s get into it!!

Gift ideas!


1. Handmade card

I feel like all parents like handmade cards, whenever I ask my mom or dad what they want for mother’s day/ father’s day, they always say “just make me a nice card”. A small card can go a long way!

2. Keychain ( I guess you can call it a keychain)

Okay, so this one is not actually a keychain. A lot of people don’t have keychain rings or keychain hooks, so I have come up with an alternative. (I will upload a picture to this post after father’s day!)

Materials:

Paper/ shrink plastic sheet

coloring materials- I used paint pens

scissors

hole puncher

String

Optional- mod podge/sealant

Optional- glitter

What to do

  1. Write something on your paper/shrink plastic sheet. I used a shrink plastic sheet because I wanted the “keychain” to be clear. I didn’t shrink the shrink plastic because then the keychain would be too small. You can use paper if you want though. I wrote with my paint pens.
  2. cut out whatever you wrote on your piece of paper/shrink plastic
  3. Wait for the paint pens to dry- if you use paint pens
  4. Punch a hole in your paper with a hole puncher- this is be the ring for your keychain.
  5. Cover with mod podge/ sealant. I used mod podge dimensional magic to make the keychain kind of thick instead of paper thin. Don’t cover the hole up. You can also sprinkle a little glitter on it before the sealant dries up
  6. Wait for sealant to dry
  7. Tie string through the hole
  8. Done! Since mine is clear it can be used as a sun catcher

Here is mine:

3. Baked good!

Find something you know your dad would like and make it for him! Parents love when you make stuff by hand for them instead of just going to the store and buying something!

4. Bookmark

This is a simple gift, but a good one. Especially if you dad reads alot of books! You can make all sorts of bookmarks! I made a monster bookmark ( I will upload a picture to this post after father’s day)

Materials:

Paper- I used colored cardstock paper so I wouldn’t have to color the paper in and it would we durable.

Tape

coloring materials

Optional- Mod podge/ sealant

Optional- pipe cleaners- this will be the ears if you are making a monster bookmark.

What to do:

  1. Cut out a rectangle in your paper
  2. Cut out a smaller rectangle in your paper that matches up with the bigger rectangle.
  3. Line the rectangles up together and tape them. This will create a flap which will be the mouth.
  4. Draw a face on the smaller rectangle- if you decide to make an animal/monster. You can decorate it however you want to
  5. In the space covered by the small rectangle (the flap) draw the mouth!
  6. Add ears by putting on pipe cleaners or cutting out paper
  7. Cover moth area with sealant- this is optional.

That is it for this simple bookmark!

5. Spending time with your dad

This is the last gift idea! This one is VERY simple but a great gift. Just spend time with your dad on father’s day. Give him some peace and quiet.

My fun day at the mall

made on 6-14-2021

Hey guys, it’s me again! Today I will be telling you guys about my day at the mall on saturday- 6/ 12/2021! Let’s get into it!

Who went

That day my friend came over for a sleepover from friday the 11th to Saturday. My dad was on a hike that day, so my mom took us. My mom, my friend, my sister, and I went to the mall. It is not an indoor mall, so it was really hot!

What we did!

We went to the mall at around 12 o’clock. When we arrived we went to a restaurant. At the restaurant my mom, my friend, and I split a pizza, and my sister had some pasta. We also had this amazing cauliflower appetizer. After eating we went to this boba place in the mall. I have been to this place before and it was really good! What made it special this time was that it was my friend’s first boba tea! Yay! But anyways we stayed there for some time. After that we went to the car to put our boba and leftover food from the restaurant. Then we went to H & M. My sister wanted to get some new clothes, but ended up not buying anything! I got something though! I got these nice striped pants. My friend and my mom didn’t get anything either. After our stop at H & M we went back home!

That was my fun day at the mall! Thank you so much for reading this post! If you liked it please try to like and subscribe to never miss out on any fun content!! And try to leave a comment, I love hearing from you guys! One last thing- try to do this form which tells me what kind of posts you guys want to see in the future: cupcakesandlemonadeform.

PS4?????

made on 6-13-2021

Hey guys, it’s me again! I’m back with a small post, but let’s just get into it!

We got a PS4!

On friday (june 11) my dad bought a PS4 with 1Tb of storage! (It’s not the latest one incase you wanted to know. The newest one is the PS5.) Apparently my uncle has the PS4 and recommended it to my dad. I didn’t really ask for this so it is kind of like a surprise gift I guess, I’m very happy and grateful though! I can’t wait to start using it more! My dad and I can play some games together- I don’t have any games in particular that I want to play, so leave any recommendations in the comments. My dad really likes racing games and shooting games.

Story

On friday my sister, my friend, and I were just sitting down in a room playing a game. When we came out we saw my dad holding a game controller! I realized he got a PS4. How did I know this? I am not the kind of person who specializes in x-boxes and PlayStations and Nintendos, but I knew it was a PS4 because of a major hint…. The hint were that earlier on friday, my dad and I went to the store to pick up a few things and on the drive back he was talking about PS4’s. So from that I kind of knew that it was a PS4. I was happy when he showed us the PS4. Since it makes my dad happy, it makes me happy! My dad used to play a bunch of video games when he was a kid, now he has the opportunity the play those games again. I think he will be a bit wiser with video games though. He said he mainly stopped playing video games because he was wasting his time a lot. But anyways I realized you could play cuphead on it. When I said this, my sister was screaming with joy- not actually screaming though 🙂 Cuphead is a game she used to play alot! She loves it. The reason why she was so happy was because, when she played cuphead only inkwell aisle 1 was available on the device she was playing on. Inkwell aisle is like level 1 so she didn’t really finish cuphead yet. Now that we have the PS4 she can complete it!!! My friend was also pretty happy for us. Her brother has a PS4.

Anyways, that is it for this post! Please try to like this post, and subscribe! Also put some game recommendations in the comments if you have any, I love hearing from you guys! One last thing- try to do this form which tells me what kind of posts you guys want to see in the future: cupcakesandlemonadeform. Thank you for reading this! I’ll catch you next time, bye!!

Hey there, it’s me again! I am going to be talking about WWDC21! Let’s get started

What is WWDC21

WWDC21 is the worldwide developers conference 2021! In this event, Apple normally releases software updates! Overall I think these are not as exciting as normal apple events, but I will touch on this a little 🙂 WWDC21 is from June 7-11 2021

What they announced:

1.iOS 15!

Coming this fall. They have some updates to facetime, like shareplay, spatial audio, portrait mode, etc.. New updates to messages, memoji, and wallet. There is also something new called focus which will help you concentrate by silencing notifications and more. They redesigned notifications! They also made some changes to safari and maps. The made a new thing which should be VERY helpful called visual look up. If you tap on an image, it will find what the image is on the web. They have some updates to spotlight, photos, health, privacy, icloud, and more! For more information check out: https://www.apple.com/ios/ios-15-preview/

2. iPadOS 15

Coming this fall. The main changes are with multitasking- they have new updates to splitscreen and keyboard shortcuts for people with the magic keyboard. Now you can add widgets to the homescreen of your ipad too, because of the widgets update. They have some updates for quick notes and notes, face time, messages, memoji, focus (which I talked about in the iOS 15 section), notifications, safari, maps, visual look up, photos, spotlight, swift playgrounds which is an app that will teach you how to code, icloud, privacy, universal control, and more.

Fun Pool ideas

(Picture by Leo Rivas on unsplash.com)

made on 6-8-2021

Hey guys, it’s me again! Today I am going to be giving you guys some ideas on how to have fun in the pool! You can do these at parties, with family, with friends, etc! Let’s dive 🏊‍♂️ into it 🙂

Games

These are some game ideas that you can play in the pool.

1- Find the object! 2-10 people (or more)

I love to do this game! Basically you throw an object in your pool and the others have to find it. I normally play without swimming goggles because then the game becomes harder and more fun. I used to have these fake squids that we would throw in, but you can use other things as well. I always hide the objects on our waterfall 😁, people always think that it is hidden underwater 😜

2- Shark– 2-10 people (or more)

When my grandma came to our house for the summer, we used to play this ALL the time! Sadly she couldn’t come over this year so we can’t play it with her 😢, anyways here’s how you play: There is one or more sharks (depending on the number of players you have) and they have to catch the fish. The shark can’t touch the fish when they are at their headquarters. The fish can only stay at headquarters or another resting place in your pool for 15 seconds at a time! The objective for the Shark is to catch the fish, the objective for the fish are to swim to the other end of the pool and back without getting touched by the shark. If you get touched by the Shark, you become a Shark. If you are playing with multiple fish, if one fish reaches the end of the pool, the other fish can become a fish again if they have been touched by the shark. The fish win if ALL of the fish make it to the end of the pool and back.

3- Marco polo- 2-10 people (or more)

This game is very common. Basically one person is moving around the pool and you have to find them. You will have your eyes closed. To find them you will shout Marco and they will shout Polo in response. Trust your ears. The person who touches the person saying Polo wins.

4- Scavenger hunt 2-10 people (or more)

This game is very similar to Find the object, except you have multiple objects. You scatter multiple objects around the pool and time people to grab as many objects as they can. Whoever has the most amount of objects at the end of the time, wins!

5- Swimsuit guessing game– 2-10 people (or more)

This will be fun! You will all cover yourself with a towel or something and try describing your swimsuit to the others! If they can’t guess it in a minute or 30 seconds just tell them.

————————————————————————————————————————————————

Ideas

Here are some ideas to make your pool time more fun!

1- Water Balloons

Water balloons are great for surprise attacks! I remember one time, I had a bucket of water ballons and when I tried to throw them at my friends, it just bounced off!

2- Water guns

Water guns are also great for surprise attacks!

3- Water War

A water war is basically when everyone is equipped with water balloons and water guns (and a shield/ object to cover yourself with, if you want) If you get hit, you’re out!

5- Pool floaties

Pool floaties make everything better! They are fun to relax and lounge on! I got some from amazon. Here are the ones I got, Flamingo pool float, Unicorn pool float (I couldn’t find the one we bought, but this is a very similar one), Pool Pong float. Also, I don’t know if this counts, but I got a beach ball from target- Shark Beach Ball

My weekend summary

made on 6-6-2021

Hey there, it’s me again! Today’s post is my weekend summary, so let’s get into it!

Saturday- 6/5/2021

Today was a very chill day. I went on a walk, watched some TV, called my family, played with my dogs, made a bracelet, got snacks, went to tennis class, made an “scavenger hunt”, finished Raya and the last dragon etc..

The highlights of Saturday were-

Getting some snacks!- I got popcorn and salted caramel ice cream

Making a bracelet- this took me such a long time- around 45 minutes! I made a golf stroke counter bracelet. I have made this kind of bracelet before. The reason it took so long was because I re-did it multiple times.

Making a “scavenger hunt”– the reason I put air quotes around scavenger hunt is because this isn’t really a scavenger hunt! My friend is coming over on friday and I told her and my sister that we are baking/ cooking a mystery item! So, I will be giving them little clues I wrote on post-it notes. The clues will lead them to a room in my house. That room will contain another clue that will lead them closer to the reveal! A part of the scavenger hunt is the recipe so I got out my markers and started drawing the mystery item and the recipe! Here is what we are making- try guessing in the comments! here it the hint: Chips + cheese + beans + more

and

Going to tennis class!

Sunday- 6/6/2021

Today was a good day! I did a-lot of things! Here were the highlights of my day!

Finishing and hiding the “scavenger hunt” stuff

Making meatballs from scratch with my mom

Eating spaghetti and meatballs for lunch– unfortunately I also had to eat broccoli 😦

Dance class

Playing apples to apples with my friend and my sister

Comment what you did over the weekend!
