New Weekly Post

I had started a new blog, but I decided to delete it and just add it to my weekly posts here on the mommy blog
===========================

Hello....

For as long as I can remember I have been apart of Mamasource.com. I got an invitation about six years now to join the website. I used it so many times when I had questions about being a mom... from my nausea during pregnancy to my daughters first bath! I also met so many great moms from my area and started a playgroup! When I sold baked goods, the moms there helped me out. I visit every now and then to see if there are any moms that I can help out. After I had my first baby I even got an email account just for all my mommy mail and had the word "mamamia" in my email.

This blog is especial to help out moms (and dads) via Mamapedia.

Mamapedia is those questions and answers organized to help everyone find the information needed better. Mamapedia is a sister site to mamasource. I will be answering some questions that moms have on this blog and linking them to mamapedia.

If you have any specific questions for me, just leave a comment and I may feature your question on my blog. Thanks for stopping by.

Q: What is a good "Green" gift for a 5 year old?

This is my first mommy Q&A for this blog. O have answered many questions, but I hope blogging about them will help mom in my area as well. Here's the question:

"GREEN" Gifts

My son was invited to a girls 5 year old "go green" birthday party. Any ideas for something that would be fun for a 5 year old girl but still earth friendly??


I'm a featured blogger on Mamapedia Voices

This is a great question and a great concept for a birthday party. I might steal that theme idea for one of my daughters or even for my birthday party! I would consider myself a greenie. And I have lots of ideas for you. But first, what is "Green" or "go green?" To go green is a process and it includes of using, buying, making of producs and/or habits that are the least or has no effect on our planet. So what kind of products do not harm our planet? That would be stuff that is not mass produced on big machines that use up tons of energy and omit CO2 or buying stuff that is packaged in plastic or man-made products that are not biodegradable or not easily recycled.
Back to your question: What would be a fun gift for a 5-year-old?
Well, first, think of what most 5-year-old girls are interested in? Dolls, coloring, playing with anything (even a cardboard box sometimes), or playing dress-up. Now how can we come up with these items and not have to throw away tons of plastics and paper in the trash? Now I have a great idea that can be fun making and fun for the birthday girl. How about crayon rocks? It's a great way to recycle and reuce old, broken crayons. Have your son help you gather these old crayons then find a cupcake or corn muffin mold and dump them in there (remove the paper of course) and place them in the oven at 275 for about 8 min. You can mix the colors or not. Check out some pics HERE. To wrap them you can place then in a tin can and have you son decorate it with her name or drawings and tie a bow! VERY GREEN if you ask me.
We should all be teeching our kiddos on how being green can be easy and fun!
ENJOY!
