Safe Kids: Phone Number Tattoo

Spring is certainly on its way, if not here already, and that means that we are traveling more. We are out at parks, amusement parks, zoos, museums, and other fun large places with lots of other people. But while we are there we want our kids to be safe, even if we end up separated. Sometimes it is hard to prepare your kids in the case of separation, or they are so distressed at being separated they forget what they have learned to do. That is why we were excited to see this unique way to make sure your kids have your number and name in case they get lost. Phone number tattoos.

This fun idea allows you to write on your kids arms your name and phone number. But you could also add any medical info if necessary. Do you have a child that has diabetes? Asthma? Allergies? Epilepsy? You can add that on their arm so that if medical issues occur when they are separated their history is known.

Spring Fun: DIY Firefly

Fireflies are one of natures sweetest and magical phenomena. They glow and buzz through the air like our very own stars of the night. As kids many of us were lucky enough to sit outside with our families and watch these magical bugs buzz around the yard, others dreamed of these magical creatures and watched them in movies that made us yearn for the Lightning bugs. Well now you and your kids can enjoy them together whether they live in your area or not. All you need is a few little items to make your own sweet and magical fireflies that you can keep forever.
