ReUsies Giveaway

You probably think we have gone mad with this  many giveaways! Well we have.lol


We go through a lot of baggies when we pack lunches. With 3 kids in school right now, it adds up quickly. Not only can this be expensive, but I also hate all the plastic trash it adds to the landfills. ReUsies are the perfect solution! They're the re-usable alternative to sandwich/snack bags. ReUsies are 100% cotton lined with leak-resistant nylon and are secured with Velcro® closures. ReUsies come in 2 sizes, sandwich and snack. They have many different patterns and colors to choose from.
I was sent the soccer ball ReUsies. The bags are really well made. The cotton seems like it will hold up really well and the nylon lining is easy to clean. ReUsies can be machine washed and dried, washed in the dishwasher, or for longest life simply wiped clean with a soapy sponge and air dried. I love the size of the bags. the sandwich size (approx. 7.5” w/ 6”h) easily held a PB&J sandwich with plenty of room to spare. I didn't have to cram the sandwich in it. The snack size (approx. 6” w / 5” h) held a large bunch of grapes. It also held a couple of handfuls of goldfish with no problem. My sons just thought they were neat. they loved the soccer ball pattern. So not only are the "cool" according to my kids, but they're also economical and eco-friendly! Check out all the neat patterns they offer HERE. One lucky reader will win a two pack in the pattern of their choice!

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 :)

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …
