All year long it has been a struggle with my middle child. He just doesn't learn the same as all the other children :O) So I have been trying to come up hands on ways to help him learn and Clothes Pin Spelling has been such a great help. Fast and easy to make and at $4 including a place to store it I couldn't go wrong. It has really helped his spelling and even my 4 year old loves to play!
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
