Family Activity 4/4/09

As a contributor with Sited and Blogged, I am going to start a twice monthly posting (every other Saturday) about a family activity or craft. To start this off, I'm going to post a great idea from the Family Fun website.
Plastic Easter eggs
Tiny pom-poms
Crafter's Pick The Ultimate glue or hot glue
Black permanent marker
Time needed: Under 1 Hour

1. To make the felt features for your critters, you can download our template. We used Crafter's Pick The Ultimate glue (hot glue also works well) to attach the pieces to the eggs and a black permanent marker to draw the face details.
2. Pig: Curl a 4-inch piece of pipe cleaner around a pen to make the tail, then glue it in place.
3. Mouse: For its tail, glue on a 3-inch length of yarn, knotted at the end.
4. Skunk: First glue the rear half of the stripe to the tail, then glue the tail and front of the stripe to the body.

Thanks to the Family Fun Magazine for this wonderful idea!

Sanyo Eneloop Rechargable Batteries Review & Giveaway

If you are like me, you have a bazillion things that require batteries, and you never seem to have enough, or the right size. It seems like everything my son has now days requires batteries to work. Between the rough and tough children's digital camera, the V-Smile and the Wii controllers, we needed new batteries for something every week. So, I began my mission of finding the best rechargeable batteries out there. That is when I found Sanyo's eneloop rechargeable batteries. When I received them in the mail, they were already charged and ready to be used. So, I put two AAs in my Wii remote and we were ready for the next round of Mario Kart. I would love to report back and tell you how long they lasted, but I can't....because they haven't died yet!

What's more is that you can get the neatest little case that a AA battery, to make bigger batteries. It only takes 1 AA eneloop battery, I can put it in the C cell adapter (or Spacer) in and now I have a C cell battery! How awesome is that? I also have an adapter for a D cell battery, which still only requires 1 A sized eneloop battery.

Are you striving to be more green in your everyday life? Then the eneloop batteries are right up your alley. Eneloop is not only rechargeable, but it is also recyclable.
Cost savings a goal for you in 2009? Since these batteries are rechargeable up to 1,000 times, you will save tons of money by the time you need to purchase new ones.

Win it!!!

What to try it out for yourself? Here's your chance.
