Bug Lab For Kids

Posted on June 27, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide kids Reviews

Bug Lab For Kids is a great collection of loads of fun activities for kids.  My son, age 7, loves this book.  He is so taken by it.  He loves to work on the labs, together.  You can collect and interact with bugs the right way, with this book.

The Bug Lab For Kids has taught the two of us so much.  From how to catch bugs, to how to pin them.  It’s a family-friendly activity book, and gives us something to do together.  He’s so into the electronics, so when I get home from work, I take him outside, and we work on catching some bugs.  He always takes the book with him.  Hopefully he will remember these activities when he gets older, so he an do them with his kids.

Prepare to cozy up with spiders, centipedes, butterflies, and bees, to name just a few! In Bug Lab for Kids, Mississippi State University associate professor, extension entomologist (bug expert), and educator John W. Guyton shares his knowledge and excitement about all things beautiful, creepy, and crawly. Every chapter is bursting with photos, illustrations, fascinating facts and fun activities–including experiments, hunt-and-catch and citizen science assignments, and arts and crafts projects–that teach kids about bugs’ physical characteristics, behavior, and how they affect agriculture, health, and water quality. Bug Lab for Kids also includes helpful sidebars that explain how to safely handle common insects, and how to easily identify bugs that shouldn’t be held, pet, or touched. Get kids excited about science and the outdoors with Bug Lab for Kids!

Get To Know 20 Crazy Bugs

Posted on June 27, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide kids Reviews

The Amazing World Bugs Book is fantastic.  My wife hates bugs, but I found it intriguing to look at with my 7 year old, son.  My son really got into it, and there’s even 13 glow in the dark bugs that came with the book.  It’s a really great book, to introduce the little ones to a whole other world out there.  My wife never goes outside, unless it’s to head straight to the car, but my son, he loves being outside with me.  So, the Amazing World Bugs is a great book for him.  He even takes it outside, and if he sees a bug from the book, will turn to that page, and go show his mother what he just saw.  In all honesty, only a couple of the bugs are found, where we are.  But, he sure makes it sound good when he runs and tells mom what he saw.

The Amazing World series transports kids to extraordinary places from the bottom of the deepest ocean to faraway galaxies. The third title in the series, Amazing World: Bugs explores the incredible world of 20 strange and magnificent insects, from shimmering glow worms and fireflies, to the extremely odd giraffe bug. Every insect profile includes up-close-and-personal, full-color photos of each amazing creature and tons of fun facts and easily digestible graphics. Kids learn about where each bug lives, what they eat, how they survive predators much, MUCH larger than they are, and so much more! The book comes with 13 reusable glow-in-the-dark plastic stickers.

At-Home Teeth Whitening: Does it Work? And, Giveaway!

Posted on June 26, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide Reviews

I’ll admit, when I first heard of Smile Brilliant, I was a skeptic.  But, then I tried it.  It works fantastic.  I’m a heavy coffee drinker, but Smile Brilliant improved my smile.  I couldn’t be happier.  There was no burning, or irritation.  I used it exactly as directed, with a few tips.  I’ve never had such a great experience.  I’m so proud of my smile now.

Smile Brilliant has two steps:

1:  Whitening

2:  Desensitizing

The Whitening part was funny.  I had those molds on my teeth, and my 7 year old said, “Daddy, what is that?”  So, as soon as I took them out, I explained.  It became a normal bedtime thing, for 2 weeks.  And, the really great thing is, you can skip a day, here or there, and your teeth stay white.

The Desensitizing part was ok.  It helped to reduce the tooth sensitivity.  It was really great.

You get three uses out of each tube.  Which makes the kit last a long time.  I still have some left, and will finish up whitening my teeth tomorrow.

The Teeth Whitening System is super easy to figure out, and they even send you an extra mold, incase you mess one up.  Which, I did.  You send the trays back, and in about 5-7 days, you have the trays back.  And, you can start whitening.  And, you can do this whenever you have 15 minutes – 2 hours.  I only left mine on for about 45 minutes, and my teeth look great.

This is one of the best products we’ve had on This Frugal Family.  It works so wonderfully, and you can see the results.

Save 20% off your kit, right now, by ordering through the above, or below, links.  Use Coupon Code:  frugalfamily20

 

Also, Enter an amazing contest, Valued at $149, right here.   It is open for 1 week (7 days) and open to USA, UK, Australia and Canadian
residents.

Strawbees will keep your child busy for hours

Posted on June 22, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide

Jacob loves Strawbees.  He’s been working on making something HUGE!  Everytime he starts to build though, I end up taking it apart.  Not because of any other reason, than trying to clean up.  He’s built plenty of things, so far.  And, where his mind will take him, he’ll build more.

Strawbees are inexpensive, and much worth every penny.  They do keep Jacob busy, especially since I keep taking them back apart.  The taking apart is easy, it’s the imagination part that I, personally, have trouble with.  I couldn’t create some of these things my 7 year old has come up with.

Features include:

  • Test the creator in yourself! The Maker kit is our entry kit or a perfect gift for a birthday or Christmas party.
  • It features 100 connectors in one random color, 100 straws, and an instructions manual. The connectors are compatible with all standard size drinking straws!
  • Start exploring the Strawbees universe by building a bridge, a crane or your favorite animal.
  • The kit is non-hazardous for children of all ages and educator-approved you can be 100% certain your child will be safe as they learn.
  • Weird experimental structures to the seven wonders of the world – if you can imagine it, you can make it. Spark the imagination of your child!

DreamWorks The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants premieres on Netflix July 13

Posted on June 21, 2018 in Dreamworks Netflix

TRA-LA-LAAAA! 

 

Get ready for a world of pranks, super villains, and your favorite underwear-wielding superhero in the Netflix original series DreamWorks The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants premiering July 13George Beard and Harold Hutchins are two best buds who share a love of comic books and practical jokes – and a strong dislike for their cranky, fun-hating school principal, Mr. Krupp. When their over-the-top pranks get out of hand, the boys unleash their creative superpowers by transforming Krupp into the bumbling, briefs-baring superhero, Captain Underpants! The future of Jerome Horwitz Elementary is always in jeopardy, and it’s up to two prank-loving fourth graders and one goofy caped crusader to save it.
