The Active Family Project-An Interview With Laura Fuentes

        Recently I was given the opportunity to interview a mother and business woman who is helping making strides in family togetherness. Laura Fuentes is a name that perhaps you have heard before. As founder and CEO of a company called MOMables she has devoted her life towards bring families together during meal time. MOMables is the first meal-planning service for healthy and fresh school lunches that children will love. Laura, like many moms, has a lot on her plate but that hasn’t deterred her from making sure her family makes time for healthy meals together as well as active playtime. As march draws to an end you may or may not have known that March is National Nutrition Month. Laura has teamed up with The Active Family Project to help families learn how to take back their playtime and mealtime. I hope you will take a moment to watch my interview with Laura below and make sure to scroll down to get more information on how your family can take back their time.

You can find out more about Laura Fuentes on her blog the Superglue Mom. Plus don't forget to check out MOMables to help find great ideas that can help your family get their time together back. Nothing is more important then time as a family.

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 …
