Frugal Mom Says: Juggle Bubbles Fun for Kids

Lisa is a mom living in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area who is “always seeking great deals and better, affordable ways of enjoying life with [her] family.” She recently did a review of Juggle Bubbles for her website, Twin Cities Frugal Mom and says Juggle Bubbles are “fun for kids.”

“My kids were excited to review a new product called Juggle Bubbles” Lisa begins. “As soon as the boxes came in the mail my kids were anxiously opening them up so they could play with them.” Lisa goes on to say:

“We blew up bubbles easily, but releasing it from the bubble blower was a bit tricky. We practiced some more and got a few bubbles to stay in our hand for a few moments or float in the air. Later we went to my daughter’s friend’s house and all the kids together were able to create some good bubbles that lasted a bit. Here my daughter’s friend’s brother created a good one that he could hold in his hand.”

What was this frugal mom’s final opinion about Juggle Bubbles? “Overall, I think Juggle Bubbles are fun for kids, especially those who love playing with bubbles (who doesn’t?). The bubbles take a little getting used to make them bounce like in the video and advertisements, but they can still entertain kids both indoors and out.”

Create your own Temporary Tattoos with Shimmer Body Art

shimmer-body-art-tattoosPublic events such as Carnivals, birthday parties, or amusement parks sometimes have booths where artists create bedazzling temporary tattoo designs much like Shimmer Body Art. These booths usually offer an array of options including cartoon characters, symbols, and flowers.  Depending on what you like, you can choose a design and have it applied on an area of your body that would like to show off.  After application, it’s bold in colors and, in some cases, sparkly due to the addition of glitter.  Often the end result is great but usually only lasts a week. There are a few things you can try to make those temporary tattoos last as long as possible.

First, before getting a temporary tattoo try exfoliating the area or shaving the area where you want the tattoo so the skin is smooth and soft.  After getting the temporary tattoo, in order to help preserve the tattoo, try to avoid washing the immediate area.  Instead, wash around the body art to avoid accidentally washing parts of it off.  Finally, add baby powder to your tattoo after application to help soak up any natural oils produced by your skin.

Avoid application of the tattoo in areas that may be often exposed to water. For example, the underside of your forearm may be better spot than your hands because you often need to wash your hands throughout the day. If staying away from water is un-avoidable applying a petroleum jelly before any contact with water may be helpful as it helps water molecules roll off that area of your skin.

While a temporary tattoo will never become permanent taking a few of these steps will help prolong the time your tattoo is fully vibrant and visible.

Consider using Shimmer Body Art to create your own professional body art shimmer that shines bright.

Scare Away your Child’s Fear of the Dark with Bright Light Pillow

bright-light-pillowChildren may go through a period in their lives when they fear the dark. Fear of the dark can arise for a number of reasons, but what can you do if it’s bedtime and your children are simply too scared to go to sleep?

It may be a good idea to discuss with your child what is frightening them when they are headed off to sleep. If they have problems with nightmares, it may be a good idea to help by giving them the skills to cope. Try making a game out of scaring the “monster” away or using flashlights to turn the room into a personal “treasure” hunt. This may help your son or daughter feel brave.

Illuminating your child’s room may also be a good idea if they are afraid of monsters. Having a constant light source in the room may put your child at ease and help them overcome their fears. You may consider purchasing an illuminating pillow such as: a Glow Worm or a Bright Light Pillow which work much like a night light. Installing a small fish tank would work in a similar fashion to give the bedroom enough illumination to help your child rest easy.

There are various ways you can help your children cope with any fears they may experience when it’s bedtime. Decide what may help your child relax so that they may fall asleep peacefully.
