Corn starch is a great substance to have around the house. It has many uses, many of which have to do with cleaning. There are some great fun things to do with it, though, especially if you have kids.On a rainy day, few things are more annoying than a bored kid. What are you going to do to relieve that boredom? Well, if your child likes art, you could get out the corn starch and a little food coloring.

First, get a pot and fill it with two cups of cold water and a quarter of a cup of corn starch. Then, heat the water until the mixture thickens up. Pour it out into various containers and mix in some food coloring for instant finger paint. Just make sure that it’s cool enough for your kids to use safely, first!Are you planning a birthday party? Well, another fun thing you can do with corn starch is make your own clown makeup. You’ll need two parts of the substance to one part of shortening. Generally, about 2/1 tablespoons works well. You’ll also need food coloring to create whatever color combinations that you want.

It is great at absorbing moisture and they should all separate easily. Then, you and your party guests can enjoy them.

Fun Easter Games

August 14, 2016

When Easter comes the kids deserve to have some fun. So why not let the kids play a few fun Easter games. This can be an Easter treat that’s actually good for them. Here are a few favorites that I know kids will love.Who’s the Hopping Bunny?This is one of the fun Easter games that can be used with a group of children so it is ideal as an Easter classroom game or an Easter party game. The children form themselves into a circle. Choose one child to be the Spotter. The Spotter goes out of the room or turns his back on the others. While the Spotter isn’t looking choose a child from the circle to be the Hopping Bunny.The Hopping Bunny chooses a movement for everyone to copy. Movements might include hopping movements like jumping on two feet with hands by sides, jumping on two feet with hands held up like paws, hopping on one foot or bouncing the body up and down with feet not leaving the ground.

The Hopping Bunny can be creative with the actions and will need to change movements often. Once everyone is copying the Hopping Bunny’s movements, the Spotter returns and starts observing the group.The Spotter’s job is to work out who the Hopping Bunny is in three guesses. The Hopping Bunny changes the movements as often as they can without being seen by the Spotter. Everyone follows the Hopping Bunny’s movements. After the Spotter has had three guesses or when the Spotter guesses who the Hopping Bunny is, the game can start over with a new Hopping Bunny and a new Spotter being chosen.When you play this game, encourage the kids not to look at the Hopping Bunny as this will make it obvious who the Spotter is. Instead suggest that they scan the group and change their movement when they see that others are changing their movements.Easter RelaysThe traditional relay race can be used as a fun Easter game by giving it an Easter twist. Here are a few suggestions. For the Human Egg Roll Relay each person has to lie down and roll to the other end. You will need to make sure there is plenty of space between each team for this relay so that children don’t roll into each other. It is also a good idea to keep the track short so that children don’t have to roll too far.For the Bunny Hop Relay children hop along the track with feet together and hands held up in front like paws so that they look like a hopping bunny.
You can also try the Egg Roll Relay. For this relay, each team is given an egg that they roll from one end to the other. Each person has to bend down and push the egg gently to make it roll.

The Egg and Spoon Relay is an old favorite that is perfect for Easter. This relay is one of those fun Easter games that is ideal for all ages. Each team is given an egg and each player is given a spoon. The children race from one end to the other holding the egg in the spoon. At the other end they have to carefully pass the egg from their spoon to the next person’s spoon.There are plenty of fun Easter games that you can use to entertain children at Easter time. These games make a great Easter treat for large or small groups and best of all these are Easter treats that won’t rot their teeth.

Fun Math Games: How Can You Have Fun With a Math App?

August 13, 2016

Fun math games seems like like a contradiction in terms. If you are anything like me, then the thought of spending leisure time doing sums is not necessarily appealing. But that is where an iPhone or iPad math app can make the difference. A cool math game has the ability to help you forget that you are actually doing arithmetic, and instead keep you entertained and addictingly glued to the screen.Aimed at both adults and children who have basic counting skills, fun math games are educational. However, the adults and kids alike will become engrossed in the competitive nature of these games, posting scores to Openfeint or Games Centre to see if they can beat their best score, and will quickly forget that they are using their brain in a way that their math teacher would happily approve of.

A math app can be cunningly disguised as a fun game for young children. Once they become engrossed with the characters or story, the addition, subtraction, spatial awareness or problem solving puzzles become entertaining and engaging and can keep a youngster amused for quite some time and on a recurring basis.Fun math games aimed at adults include the old faithful games such as Sudoku, the new classic game Tetris, and even the immensely popular Angry Birds which uses a player’s knowledge of angles and velocity, although without you really thinking about it and dreading playing a math game! The addicting quality of any of these games takes over and the player is fully engaged and determined to win. That is the sign of a great game.Why use an app instead of paper and pencil? Well, I would not argue that paper and pencil make a very entertaining option if that is all you have. But the options with apps are huge and becoming greater every day. Most game apps are free or very inexpensive. Graphics are entertaining and lively for children, and engaging for adults. Different play modes are available allowing you to choose the type of game you feel like playing today, and you have the option of scores being compared with others all over the world. Now why would you choose paper and pencil?

If, like me, you think math is not appealing, then I would suggest you try a math app for iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. It might just surprise you how much you enjoy it, and your brain might like the workout from fun math games!

It’s All Fun and Games Until The Cops Show Up

August 16, 2016

I remember one day in the sideshow. On this morning Doc calls me over to his housetrailer and he has this big sewing needle out on the table. He says, I have a new act that you can do Markie. I watched….I thought sure he was going to have me push this needle down the hollow throat of the rubber chicken and claim he was the sword swallowing chicken. Nope, I could not get that lucky!Doc picks up this huge sewing needle and proceeds to push the thing into his arm. There is blood just dripping down his arm – but he is in no pain. I start to shake a bit…feel a bit woozey…Doc pulls the needle out, wipes it off – does somthing to clean it up…I don’t know I was ready to get very sick to my stomach. Doc says: “okay, markie…you try it”I start to argue with Doc – “Oh no pal, I’m the magician and the bed of nails guy…yada yada.”Batman Rick says: You are the pain proof man. I agreed – but that was the wrong thing to do in this case. Rick picks up the sewing needle…kinda moves it out of the way and squeezes abit of fat from around my stomach….”Just relax” he says “When you squeeze the fat here it will stop you from getting sick to your stomach” I thought he was right because I was feeling alittle better.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
All the sudden Rick pushes this needle into my stomach and I leave out yell: “OOOUUUUUCCCHHHHH” ~~~~~I must be honest, it hurt!Rick said “Control your mind Mark…it’s all in the mind” Well, this all builds up to the bed of nails stunt…because Rick was 100% right, it was all in the mind.As my blood filled my t-shirt and made a mess everywhere I started to feel better about the pain.Now my cousin Jim comes walking over and sees my blood everywhere and says: “Are you okay Mark?” Now, I am trying to get used to the pain and am in shock because I have a needle hanging out of my stomach….Jim heard a huge “OOOUUUCCCHHHHH” and came over to see what the noise was about…..but here I am with this needle in my stomach and my own blood everywhere and Jim asks me the dumbest question ever: Are you okay Mark? I said to him, “Would you be okay with this needle in your gut?” Jim thinks this is a joke or a magic trick and he says: “that’s gross.” Now, I don’t know how to take that from a guy that sticks stuff up his nose for a living.Rick says to me: “See it’s been 5 minutes and you are fine…do that in the show tonight” So, well…i end up putting it into the show thinking it would be no big deal and on my first try there is this 6 foot tall dude there trying to impress his girl – he knows how we do each act, the swords fold up, the girl is a guy, the guy is a girl, we use trap doors, we use fat suits – you name it and this guy was WRONG….about everything. Well, I pushed that needle into my arm and this dude just faints…his friends catch him ~ he’s out cold. It’s tear down night – we are moving out of one town and into another one….well, we get finished and go to Denny’s and there is this farmboy that tried to impress his girlfriend.Well, I send Jim out to the truck to re-adjust my bed of nail because we just threw them into the truck and I knew they kinda rolled around abit on the way over to Denny’s. I order my food and Jim’s – he is outside stacking the truck.Well, the Fatlady is in the Denny’s and our midget was there and well..we were used to people looking at us funny and like we were weird. This farmboy sees that the fatlady is still in her ‘fatsuit’ so he knows that was WRONG and he sees the midge is walking around – with no trick mirrors – so he knows that’s WRONG. This ugly farmboy was about to make the worst mistake of his life and he didn’t even know it. Rick and whatever girl he has at the time are sitting there eatting and this farm boy walks over to Rick and says: We don’t serve long haired hippies in here.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
Ricks says to him – trying to be polite ~ “Oh? Why not, they serve hog like you here farmboy.” I thought oh no…here we go…This dude says to Rick: “How about you say this outside?” All I can think about is Jim is outside re-making the truck and this could get messy and I am not in the mood for this. The dude says to Rick:” say that outside” So Rick says to the dude:’Why, you can’t hear inside? Go eat you slop hogboy and if you still feel like you want to wallow in your own muck, maybe after I eat…wipe that dung off your boots and eat your slop and when I am finished I’ll take you on…fair enough?”This guy makes an attempt to grab Rick – All I remember seeing is ole farm boy gets thrown through a plate glass window – people are running everywhere and someone calls the cops. This dude lands in the parking lot – Jim turns around and ole farmboy missed my bed of nails by about 3 inches. The cops come….Rick pays $250 cash for the broken glass and ole farmboy goes to jail for disorderly conduct.Jim comes in to eat his food and says: “Why did that guy jump out the window Doc?”
