Smart Shield- Serious Sun Protection

This summer meant a lot of outdoor time and fun, we always make sure to use some for of sun protection. What people sometimes forget is as we send our children back to school the sun is still very much a threat. Recently my family received the chance to review a product called Smart Shield. Smart Shield is a Continuous spray sunscreen that you can wear all day every day. It is oil free so it won't stain your clothing or clog your pores. It is made to help let your skin breath, which helps you stay cooler, since it is quickly absorbed into your skin. The product is hypoallergenic, PABA free and DEET free for safe family protection.

We have used nearly the entire bottle now and it is still spraying very well. I love that it doesn't spit little blobs all over that I have to wipe with my hands. You have probably noticed by now if you read the blog regularly that my middle son never seems to have a shirt on.lol I couldn't tell you why but he jsut doesn't like them, and when we are out in the backyard nothing changes, he is actually less likely to wear a shirt. So of course here I am spraying him. I have noticed it does leave a slight film on his skin, but it doesn't seem to be oily when he sweats. We have yet to encounter a sun burn while using this product even with 4-6 hours in between uses. With summer far from being over here is West Texas I will be picking up another bottle this week.
To try this product for yourself you can check out their site and find a retailer near you HERE. Or you can simply order from their site :) make sure to check out all the great news and stay up to date with them on Facebook and Twitter.

Sounds like a great product. My kids will not let me use anything but a spray on now.
We are so strict on sunblock, my youngest knows he can not go outside with out it. I will check this out, trying to find one that is less irritating for his sensitive skin.

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 …
