Mexican Jumping WHAT?!?!

Most of us have heard of Mexican Jumping Beans and if you are like me thought oh sure a bean that jumps. So much to my simple minded amazement I want into the local Dollar Tree only to find what?? Yep you guessed it Mexican Jumping Beans. So as I sit there with my daughter watching the beans twitch and think what in the world makes them do this?? "Magnets perhaps" I thought. Well sure enough as I look at them a sales associate walks up to me and starts to talk about them. It was then I learned what they truly were. SEEDS! Not only seeds but they were seeds with tiny caterpillars in them. The jumping in fact it cause by the movement of the small creatures inside as they mature into tiny moths. So naturally I bought one, I'm not sure how long this process is going to take but I plan on watching them the entire way. This is my little Beandito :O)

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol
