The Beauty of Black Star Canyon, Silverado, CA

Black Star Canyon is located a few miles from Disneyland and Irvine Spectrum. It is hidden gem and can only be accessed through walking or biking. It is a place that feels as though you have traveled back in time when California was young and unexplored. Some say that this canyon may be haunted or worse a home base for aliens. Who knows? We did not encounter anything of that sort. In the spirit of Harvest and Halloween, we thought you might enjoy this field trip because of the stories that follow this canyon.  The canyon is beautiful and inspiring. There is no city lights or noise. The air is clean and crisp in the mornings. There is a hiking path that takes through beautiful trees. Birds are abundant throughout the canyon. Bugs can be seen and heard as you walk on the path. One recommendation: We  highly recommend that you stay on the walking path because there is one strange thing we found.  As you walk further into the canyon you will see an eerie place to the left. It can

How to make slime!

It's hot and the kids are bored! What to do? Make slime and have fun is the answer. Homemade slime is so much fun to make and play with. Just take a peek at our home video. Most of the ingredients are already in your cabinet. Glue, liquid starch, food coloring and water is all that you need. The key to success is to mix the Starch a little at a time. Do not put all the ingredients in at once because it will turn to liquid goo. We made that mistake the first time around. You may have some Starch left over. Watch the video before attempting to make the slime.  Ingredients: 5 oz of Clear Glue (We used Elmer's Glue) 1/2 cup Liquid Starch (found in the detergent isle in the grocery store.) 3 to 4 drops of food coloring 1/2  of the Clear glue bottle filled with water 1 large bowl 1 plastic spatula This was fun for all of us. We hope that you try it and enjoy it! Disclaimer: No pens or pencils were hurt in the making of this video and craft. This project may cause e
