The Ultimate Green Store Giveaway

I am sure you have realized that both Belinda and I are seeking greener lifestyles for our growing families. One of the ways I was interested in "greening up" was my school supplies. That is why I was so excited to learn that we would get to partner with the Ultimate Green Store for our Back to School event! The Ultimate Green Store is one of the biggest retailers of eco-friendly and organic products. They have a huge selection of back-to-school products (including BPA-free lunchboxes and eco-backpacks) and baby and kids products as well as a wide variety of products for the home (including organic bedding and eco-kitchen products). I have been drooling over their selection of organic baby bedding ever since we found out we are expecting out 4th. I was sent a box of Soybean Blend Crayons. Living up to their name, the package arrived in
eco-friendly packaging. You may be asking...WHY soy crayons? "Unlike most crayons which are made from paraffin wax derived from petroleum, these crayons are made from sustainable U.S. agriculturally grown sources. Unlike paraffin wax crayons, these are completely biodegradeable and are also non-toxic. The colors produced are brighter than conventional crayons. The crayons glide smoother and flake less." I may be a grown-up, but there is still something so special about opening a new box of crayons. My little reviewers choosing which crayon they will use first. Our son's final product! Our 9 year old's creation! So what did my reviewers think? They said... "Mommy there is something different about these crayons, they are much less waxy." "I think these colors seem brighter somehow." "How did you find eco-friendly crayons and what makes them eco-friendly?" "Can we always use these from now on?" "Who gets this box for school or are you going to buy us more of these so we can all have our own?" Bottom line: All three kids give two thumbs way up! Disclosure: The product(s) offered for the giveaway are free of charge, no purchase necessary. Any opinions expressed are my own honest opinions and are not influenced by any form of compensation.

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 :)
