Do your kids hate getting shots? Give Buzzy a try. Vibrates and contains ice pack to confuse bodies nerves and distract/take away the pinch or poke of the needle. I will be buying this before we go again.
Need to remember this for KIDS...Remove a splinter easily by applying a paste of baking soda and water, then waiting several minutes for the splinter to pop out of the skin. Wow this is amazing! Wow this would have been really useful this summer
"Technology Tickets". Each Sunday give the kids 10 tickets. Each ticket = 30 minutes of t.v., game system, computer, etc. Tickets can be used consecutively, but when they are out they are out for the week. **Love this idea!! Also, take away as punishment"
Refrigerator snack bin. Kids want a snack? Tell 'em to hit up the bin and pick one thing. This has made getting a snack so much easier at our house! She is now choosing the healthy snacks because they are in her bin. We have one in a low cabinet also with crackers, granola bars, etc. No more fighting over snacks!
