Flippin Awesome: Water Bottle Flip Games, Tricks & Stunts For Everyone

Has you child reached for that bottle of water and caused you panic when they toss it in the air to let it land on the ground. I had never heard of bottle flipping before my 8 year old son and a friend staying the  night started throwing bottles. They were on the floor throwing bottles of water in the air right at my desk. When visions of water exploding all over my computer and electronics I sent them outside. It was raining so they were flipping bottles on the front porch. What is this? Why are they flipping water that my explode everywhere?

Blame You Tube because in a video they like watching the channel introduced them to the craze. I work at the local High School and in the cafeterias I would see kids flipping bottles. They needed somewhere a little more safe and more sensible to do this water bottle flipping stunt and a game board was the ticket.

In the book Flippin Awesome, there are 12 oversized game boards and more. Variations and how-to instructions, a little lesson in physics, bottle bling ideas, trick shots, creative moves, games, challenges and logs with score cards. The book is made available with Skyhorse Publishing and you can order on Amazon as well.

Space Heater Safety with Honeywell HeatGenius

Sample sent for feature

honeywell-heatgenius-heater

In our family we have had a house fire that resulted in a total loss in a home our oldest son was renting from my husband’s parents. A dog toy had got wedged under an old ceramic space heater and it ignited in the middle of the night and the home caught fire. They made it out in PJ’s and boxers and lost everything else. Space heaters have been notorious for starting fires and this is why brands like Honeywell have included all of the safety features you should look for when buying a space heater. Space heaters have great benefits so you can use them, but buy safe.

I am featuring the Honeywell HeatGenius full of safety and other useful features to heat larger rooms in your home.

  • 6 heat settings to heat you, a whole room, floor and more
  • 1500 watts of heat output (that’s a lot for a space heater)
  • Quiet mode for a white noise
  • Button touch controls
  • Tip over switch
  • Overheat protection
  • Cool touch housing
  • High quality, heat-resistant plastics
  • HeatPhase™ timer 30 min-2 hours

You can set it near a bathroom or kitchen on floor mode and wake up to warm floors in the morning. You can also set it to a mid personal heat so not too hot on floor or up higher-just a nice lap heat when sitting. There is a Hi and Low mode depending on the size of the room.

The HeatPhase timer is fantastic. When set at 2 hours or less it will gradually decrease in heat intensity every 3o minutes until it shuts itself off. This is great for bedtime or in a nurser, etc. You get that initial higher heat but it will decrease so you don’t overheat in time.

You can learn more and purchase directly from their website at Honeywell or you can get it at retailers like Amazon.

The Gift of Gift Children’s Book Mom’s Choice Award Winner

The Gift of Gift

The Gift of Gift

by: Sanjay Nambiar

The Mom’s Choice Awards (MCA) is an international awards program that recognizes authors, inventors, companies, parents, and others for their efforts in creating quality family-friendly media, products, and services. Parents, educators, librarians, and retailers look for the MC and The Gift of Gift by Sanjay Nambiar has won this award.

Gift is Ugandan girl character of the story who is sick with a heart condition. Princesses Kinney, Oceana, and Sammie gather to build a heart hospital in Uganda to help Gift heal and she does. However, she also receives another very special transformation, as she becomes a new Super Amazing Princess Hero with the power of healing.

About the book proceeds:

Proceeds from the book are being shared with World Children’s Initiative (WCI), which built a hospital in Sri Lanka after the 2004 tsunami, as well as the African heart center depicted in “The Gift of Gift”. The title character in the story was inspired by a real-life girl named Gift, who was WCI’s first heart patient in Uganda.
