|Crafty Heart Eggs|
Posted On 2013-02-16 , 12:06 PM
It doesn’t have to be Valentine’s Day to show some LOVE! Any day will do. ^.~ ! Here's a crafty idea to show some love by making HEART EGGS:
~ Source: FolkWisdomMagazine.com
- Fold a thick cardstock or cardboard piece down the middle.
- Place hardboiled egg on its side, in the middle of the folded cardstock.
- Take a long thin wooden piece (like a skewer, round chopstick, thin dowel, or kids paint brush) that would extend most of the way along the cardboard and place over the top of the egg so there is slight pressure.
- Secure a rubber band around each end of your stick to the top ends of the cardstock.
- Place in fridge; after about 3 or 4 hours remove.
- Cut egg in half.
- Serve as a cute side to someone you ♥; or slice to add a decorative taste to a salad. Now go enjoy this crafty idea!
|Desktop Jellyfish Tank|
Posted On 2013-02-08 , 12:36 PM
We've decided to add a new board to our Pinterest Boards titled Hobby Ideas in support of our Scrapbooking page (for one.) ^.^ We're starting with The Desktop Jellyfist Tank which, actually, can fit just about anywhere in a kid's room.
"The Desktop Jellyfish Tank’s patent-pending design gives marine enthusiasts and aquarium lovers a chance to have jellyfish right before their eyes. This complete starter kit even includes a voucher (with free overnight shipping) for 3 moon jellyfish and six months of food. Add water, plug it in and be mesmerized by their moon-shaped bodies glowing with the changing color of the tank’s LED light. Designed by Jellyfish Art's team of engineers, this tank is still new to the market so you get to be among the first to have it in your home and brag about having jellyfish as pets."
So, if you can't or don't have stars on your ceiling, ask your parents if you can have a jellyfish tank on your desk. Want to learn about keeping jellyfish first? Check out the book below. You can see more reef creatures similar to the jellyfish here. ^.^
|Kibooku - Safe Site 4 Kids|
Posted On 2013-01-30 , 2:53 PM
Jamie Tosh developed Kibooku
, a social media site safe for kids, after his daughter was the victim of cyber-bullying, and it has since attracted worldwide attention. [Hopefully in the U.S., too. ^.^]
The site aims to allow children between the ages of six and 13 to use a social networking site in a safe but fun way, while at the same time giving parents peace of mind about their children’s online activities, as they must review the account every two weeks through their personal viewing platform.
"This will allow the parent to view all current and deleted items; it is completely secure, and requires an adult to validate the account using a credit card processed with 3D security.
"If a card is used which does not match the address, then the person cannot proceed to use the site. Registration costs just £3 per year, with a proportion of each fee being donated to the charity ‘Cash for Kids’.” ~ Source: Brechin Advertiser 1-25-13
