Made by Me Box Set

Made By Me Box Set

 

 

Less assembly than model cars but way more fun!! A child can learn how to create, build and have fun. The Made By Me Box Set allows children the chance to make relatively simple vehicles and then decorate them anyway they like. Better than a preassembled toy in my book. The Made By Me Boxed Set is also one parents don’t really need to help with. I like toys that show children how learning and creating is fun and exciting. Who know’s this might be the spark your child needs to figure out what he or she will want to be when they grow up.

Product Description: The Made By Me Set Details:
Get 4 original vehicle kits in one box. Includes the blank bodies for a train, tugboat, tractor, and truck plus wheels and axles for each.

All you need is some glue, a hammer, and paints, crayons, stickers or anything you want use for designing your vehicles.

Made in the USA.

Eco Garden Set from Hape

Eco Garden Set from Hape

I don’t know about you buy my doll house accessories were no where near as cool as Hape sets. The design and creativity that make up the Hape sets are amazing. I am sort of jealous I don’t have a doll house of my own now. The attention to detail with the cup set and kabobs are way too cute. Toys like this encourage your child to use their imagination with out being “plugged in”. Another positive side to the Hape sets especially this one is that it isn’t just for girls and their dolls. There is nothing to say that GI Joe or any other action figure cannot have an Eco-Garden BBQ. The colors and construction of the Eco-Garden set can be uni-sex which I think is a cute idea if you have multiple children in your home or at school. Action figures must like to BBQ too right?

Product Description:
Let your child’s dolls relax in the shade with this Eco-Garden set from Hape . The bamboo stalks and parasol provide shelter from the sun and the drinks and kabobs create a wonderful meal on a summer evening. The set consists of 1 patio, 2 chairs, 1 table with parasol, 2 bamboo stalk clusters, 1 grill with kabobs, and 1 cup set. A unique and eco-friendly addition to your child’s doll collection.
Made with Bamboo. Earth’s fastest growing plants, bamboo is highly renewable. Bamboo stands release 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than equivalent timber forests and require no replanting, pesticides or fertilizers to grow. Bamboo is also highly durable and strong–it’s even harder than red oak and maple wood! A light water-based stain has been applied to the bamboo which is then polished with beeswax, providing a natural, satin finish.

Green Graffiti?

Moss Paint

Funny enough I found the green graffiti idea due to a tweet made by Andy Dick of all people. I saw the title Moss Graffiti  and I had to see what green graffiti was all about.
All you need is: a handful of moss, water, water-retention gardening gel, & buttermilk and you are on your way to making your own live graffiti that is probably better for the environment and better than painting on other peoples property. I am thinking green graffiti probably isn’t even illegal but don’t quote me on that.
I am not sure how green this really is but I do think this is a good idea to do at home as a project. Its an interesting activity to say the least.
I think creativity wise you could do fun things with green graffiti and maybe even figure out ways to make the moss different colors and possibly even include other plants in the mixture to see if they would grow as well. Spring is coming and there are plenty of things to plant but green graffiti would change up your garden up a bit. Try it as a science project for school or as an at home project with some friends! I know I am going to try some green graffiti at my home this spring! If you do send us pictures and we will post them on The Beagle!
As always creating more vegetation in our world is a plus so green graffiti earns points for that but I don’t suggest trying this on property that isn’t yours unless given permission. Green graffiti can be used to cover up difficult to remove paint graffiti which might be a more cost effective way to deal with unwanted graffiti and a good lesson for graffiti artists because painting over moss might be difficult. This might deter people from using spray paint which isn’t a bad thing either so maybe green graffiti is greener than I thought!
