éé coming up on mom to mom, sometimes it can be difficult to calm your little ones down close to bedtime .

éé after the break, mandy shows us how to make sensory bottles that will help get them to sleep.

éé stay with us.

éé intro children interact with several gadgets and gizmos through out the day.

éé and sometimes it can be difficult to calm them down close to bedtime .

éé mandy has a cool spin to help get your little ones to sleep.éé take a look.

éé pkg today on mom to mom, we're going to make something to help calm your kid's senses at bedtime.

Our kids go through sensory overload throughout the day.

I mean, they're on their computers, their cell phones, an ipad, whatever it may be, watching tv.

They just experience a lot of it throughout the day.

And when it comes to bedtime, it's hard for them to unwind.

That's why this glowing sensory bottle is perfect for helping them calm down in the evening.

And it's super easy to make.

All you need is some baby oil, or you can have mineral oil, some glitter, and of course, i really like the oil candy coloring.

It's kind of like food coloring, but it's oil-based so it kind of just has a little bit thicker texture to it when we're going to make our bottles.

And then last but certainly not least, we have glow in the dark stars that we have.

First, you want to fill your bottle with baby oil, not all the way to the top because we still need to leave room for the stuff that we're going to put in there.

Next we're going to use our oil candy color.

You can put however much you want in there.

Then, i want to have a little fun and put some glitter in there just to make it super sparkly, but you again can do it however you like.

And then last, i like to put the mini stars in there.

They're the glow in the dark ones.

Once you're finished, you can top it off with more baby oil.

Then you want to make sure that you super glue the lid on.

That way your kids can not unscrew it and you've got a big mess in your bed.

If your kids are ever having a hard time falling asleep, just hand them this sensory bottle, have them count the glowing stars and watch them fall fast asleep.

Hopefully.

If you ever have any great ideas that helps with your kids, we'd love to hear them.

And as always, moms, we'll see you on the next mom to mom.

Now that november is here, chilly mornings are becoming normal.éé but occasionally, you'll see a thin layer of frost on the grass and even your car.

éé meteorologist trevor birchett explains what frost is and why it happens.

éé on these cold fall mornings, frost is something we're used to seeing.

But how and why does it form?

Let's start off with a little meteorology lesson.

As you probably know, during the day, the sun heats up the surface and causes our temperature to rise through the day.

And at night, that heat rises from the surface, causing our temperatures to cool down overnight.

Now before we can talk about frost, we have to talk about dew.

Picture this, the temperature at the surface is 67 degrees with a dew point of 43.

The dew point is the temperature at which moisture or dew will form, so in order for dew to occur, the temperature has to drop to the dew point.

As i mentioned, the temperature drops overnight, but the dew point doesn't change.

So eventually, the temperature will drop to the dew point, and dew will form on the grass and other surfaces.

Frost basically occurs in the same way, but it happens when the temperature and dew point are both below freezing.

Again, at night, the temperature falls, and the moisture in the air freezes on grassy surfaces, trees, and even your car.

Frost doesn't usually cause issues on the roadways, since the pavement is usually warmer than grass.

So all in all, frost doesn't cause any major issues, but it is pretty to look at.

You may just want to cover up your sensitve plants if frost is in the forecast.

If you have questions about the weather, let me know!

You can send them in to us via email or on facebook and twitter.

With this week's weather whys, i'm meteorologist trevor birchett.
