Back to SChool Pandas Giveaway

Here is another great giveaway in the series of back to school giveaways! I hope we can help you get ready :O)

Do your kids have a passion for anything? Our middle daughter, has a soft spot in her heart for Panda's. She loves them and collects them and worries about them becoming extinct. One of her dreams is to visit China and see the Pandas living in their natural environment. At one point she had a dream to ride a panda. LOL! Anyways, when looking for Back to School items and panda themes, I literally stumbled across Pandas International. In case you are wondering, yes, they are a non-profit organization with a great mission! (The following is taken directly from their website)  
"The Giant Panda, one of the most delightful and captivating of animals, is also one of the most endangered. The best scientific estimates place the number of wild pandas at approximately 1,600. In 1999, after a trip to China and the Wolong Panda Center, the sight and plight of the Giant Panda made such a dramatic impression on Suzanne Braden and Diane Rees that upon returning to the United States, they co-founded Pandas International to help save this magnificent animal. In 2000, tax exempt status was granted by the Internal Revenue Service and Pandas International became a registered 501 (c) (3) non profit. Pandas International is unique in that it is exclusively devoted to the Giant Panda, unlike other organizations, which serve many animals. As the Director of Pandas International, Ms. Braden coordinates both the annual and immediate needs of the Panda Centers. The personal relationships she has developed with Chinese officials, veterinarians and their staff members have allowed Pandas International to maximize its role in preserving this beloved species. Following the 2008 earthquake which destroyed the Wolong Panda Center and damaged the bamboo forest in the Nature Reserve, the challenge to save the Giant Panda has been made more difficult. Without intervention, this species could perish.
Mission Statement
The mission of Pandas International, a non-profit organization, is to ensure the preservation and propagation of the endangered Giant Panda. By providing public awareness and education, support for research, habitat preservation and enhancement, and assistance to Giant Panda Centers.
Endangered means we have time — Extinction is forever."
Pandas International makes it fun and easy to help support their cause by offering an entire online store filled with panda related gifts, clothes and so much more! I had my daughter browse their site and she said her favorite item was the I Heart Panda Tee, which retails for $15.00.
She is so proud of her shirt. And from a mom's perspective I love it too. The sleeves have the two colors to make it appear layered and I love the little ruffle. And after multiple washings, the print is still looking great!

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

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 :)
