Captain McFinn and Friends! Review and Giveaway.

Working in a school it amazes me how even at such a young age bullying is very widely spread. Even at 4 years old the children start picking at each others clothing, hair, speech and well just about anything they can! When I got the chance to review this great new series called Captain McFinn and Friends I was really excited to see if it could be something to use with my kids and students alike.
First I downloaded the interactive App onto my phone. My phone was a little slow for it but it looked really really cool so I checked and was excited to see that it is available on the kindle as well! You can check it our for your kindle HERE. I love the wide variety of material that you can get. I received a CD with tons of great songs. They kept my children's attention and had a great message. An activity book with fun mazes and coloring pages was a great addition. The story books were by far my favorite part of this series. It is brightly illustrated and full of adorable characters that my children simply LOVED! Now like many people right now we are out on winter break but I can't wait to show this to our school district and hopefully implement it as a program there! Remember that bullying prevention is nothing to joke about and they are never to young. Even at 5 years old my daughter very much understood the concept of these materials and I am assured all her classmates will as well. If you want to find out more about this great series please here HERE. You can find great free activities and also shop for these amazing books. These books would make a great gift for any child, parent of teacher. Don't be afraid to bring it up to your school district, lets stop bullying before it starts!
Captain McFinn and Friends want to help get bullying prevention off to a great start, they are giving away Captain McFinn and Friends Materials to one lucky reader.

Sounds like a great way to educate the kids that be a bully is just wrong, never to early to teach that and it sounds like its fun way for them to learn so they "get it".

I love the idea of this. I hate that there is bullying going on in this world. It is never to early to learn that it is wrong to bully.

I can remember filling in for an after school program and watching the kids age 4 teasing other children because of their shoes. All the parents (myself included) went out that night and bought our children shoes like the child they were picking on and made them wear them. I was so upset that my son at that age would pick on another child for something so stupid.

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 …

Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler Review and Giveaway

Recently I was given an amazing opportunity to review a new product by Rubbermaid called the Hidden Recycler. As a family who does a lot to help our planet in many ways this was an exciting opportunity. I loved the fact the Rubbermaid not only made a product that would help my family continue their recycling more easily but they reduced packaging to merely a cardboard sleeve that I could in turn recycle. I quickly opened the package like a kid at Christmas and discovered it would not fit my kitchen cabinets :O( we are in the middle of a kitchen remodel and the layout of my old cabinets would not hold the brackets.  So as I sat down to gloat about not being able to use this amazing product, and I notice two holes on the lid and made a massive dash for the directions. Sure enough I can attach it with screws! (Which ironically took me forever to find in our construction materials) I found the perfect place for it in my laundry room and began putting all of Rubbermaid's claims to the …
