“I love flies landing on my food,” said No One Ever!

The Bug-A-Salt is a pump action gun that shoots a shotgun spray of ordinary table salt to decimate flies on contact.

Inflatable Solar Powered Lanterns

My inflatable solar powered lanterns give better light than my battery operated ones. And they’re not even expensive.

inflatable-solar-powered-lanterns-giftA friend brought hers on a camping canoe trip, and I wanted my own immediately. I now own two!

Eco-Friendly Design

During the day, my friend carried it on the outside of her pack to let it absorb solar energy, and at night she used it to light up our entire tent. When fully charged, it shines for up to 12 hours.

I also like to go backpacking, and all of my gear needs to be lightweight. These are perfect!

These inflatable solar powered lanterns weigh 4 oz. and don’t take up any room because they have a collapsible design.

PAW Patrol Birthday Party Theme

- - Kids

My son loves the TV show PAW Patrol, so it’s no surprise he picked it for the theme of his 4th birthday party.

paw-patrol-birthday-party-themeI was excited about his choice because each of the pups on the show have really cool personalities and traits. I had a lot of fun planning his birthday party, especially the obstacle course in the backyard.

I believe the most important part of a birthday party are the games or activities. It’s the fun the kids have doing them that will create the most lasting memories. So that’s where I like to put my focus.

Pup Pup Boogie Song & Dance

One of the PAW Patrol episodes features a song called “Pup Pup Boogie.” It’s catchy and makes everyone want to dance. I printed off the Nickelodeon “Pup Pup Boogie” printable spin-the-wheel game. The spinner can land on different puppy moves the kids can do to the music of “Pup Pup Boogie.” The kids did moves like “tail spin” and “puppy pose” while the “Pup Pup Boogie” song played on a continuous loop.

Adventure Course

Each of the PAW Patrol pups have different specialties so I created an outdoor obstacle course for the kids to do. After completing it, each kid earned a PAW Patrol badge. I called it the Adventure Course, and it featured six stations based on the six main characters in the show.

Herb Garden Marker Signs

It’s quite rewarding to grow your own fruits, vegetables and herbs and to cook with and eat something that you planted, grew and harvested yourself.

herb-garden-markers-signs-plant-lables-giftWhen my boss started an herb garden in her backyard. She talked excitedly about how fast they grew, which ones were multiplying like crazy, and which ones were ready to be eaten.

Sometimes she had way more than she could use so she brought them to the office to share with us.

It was fun to hear about her adventures in gardening and made me interested in growing my own herbs too.

When her birthday came around, I decided to give her something for her new hobby. I gave her a set of Herb Garden Marker Signs so she could clearly label the herbs in her backyard.
