Frozen Handclapping SongThe season of Frozen has come and gone, but my daughters are still Elsa obsessed.

A few months ago I taught our six year old how to do the hand clapping rhyme “Say Say Oh Playmate.” (Sometimes called See See, or even Cee Cee) She loves to sit with me and sing this fun song and recently requested a special Frozen themed version — she even helped come up with the words!

I thought I would share it with you, in case you have a little one who would be over the moon for it like my girls are.

I’ll likely add a little video of us doing this, but right now my allergies are in high gear and I have no voice!

If you need help with the tune, try this YouTube vid.

The Original – Say Say Oh Playmate

Say, say oh playmate,
Come out and play with me,
And bring your dollies three,
Climb up my apple tree.
Slide down my rainbow,
Into my cellar door,
And we’ll be best of friends,
Forever more – more – more
And more!

Our Remix – Elsa Oh Playmate

Elsa oh playmate,
Come build Olaf with me,
And make your snowflakes three,
Climb up my frozen tree,
Slide down my snow bridge,
Into my castle door,
And we’ll be best of friends,
Forever more – more – more
And more!

Upcycled Mop Washing HackThis isn’t fancy or crazy, but it is useful!

If you’re like me, you have a collection of thick rubber bands building in a junk droor. They come on everything from asparagus to broccoli, and they’re heavy duty so you hate to throw them away.

Tossing your mop head into the washing machine may get it clean, but it may also result in an unruly, tangled mess. To prevent this, grab a your saved rubber bands to tame the ends. Wrap them, or double wrap if needed, around the ends of your mop strands (or strips) to keep them from knotting. Toss your mop head into the washer for a good scrub and then lay flat, or hang, to dry.

Voila! Clean mop head, no stress.

Thanks for the tip, Mom! ;)

As you may know, we moved into a new home last year and while there are many things I love, the thermostat is not one. I could not figure out how to properly use or set it, causing a lot of discomfort (and grumpiness on warmer days.) So when I was given the opportunity to give a Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat a try, courtesy of Honeywell and at no charge to me, I jumped on it!

The Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat is simple to install and offers easy control over your indoor environment – from anywhere! Check out the quick video below to see just how easy it is to install. One you’re done, you may need to cover old holes and touch up paint, but even that is no big deal.

One thing I love about this thermostat is that it does not take up a lot of real estate on your wall. It’s quite small and I appreciate the sleek, modern design.

In addition to being easy to install and use, it also comes with a host of features. Honeywell’s app allows you to program your thermostat from your computer, tablet, or smartphone—from anywhere in the world. I may have to try this out when I head to Blog U in June! In addition to being easy to access, this thermostat offers flexible scheduling options to allow you to program for your unique needs. It even features an indoor humidity sensor and shows the humidity on the display.

Pick your favorite color, match your decor, or even show off some team spirit. If you want to tame the fun, especially with the kiddos, there are even advanced password options for security.

Honeywell is giving you a chance to win your very own Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat! Simply enter below, and good luck!

You can find out more about this model (and others) at the Honeywell website.
