Everyday is a learning adventure for moms. We’re constantly trying to teach our children the right values and to take personal responsibility for their actions. We make every effort to teach by example, with the goal of helping our children make the world a better place. In order for that to happen, we must also teach our children about their social responsibility to make positive choices for our world. Using tree free paper products, cleaners with no harmful chemicals, and products endorsed by organizations like Healthy Child Healthy World, goes a long way towards teaching our children to make positive choices. They will change the world by helping to create a safer environment for us all!
Eco friendly products can be so hard to find!
Aha! I knew you might think so, because so did I. There is an entire line of paper, cleaning, personal care, and baby products that incorporate all these environmentally friendly values, right down the street. Okay, it might not be just down the street, but I’m sure it’s close by! Affordable, environmentally safe, and tree free Ology™ products are available exclusively at your local Walgreens. They are just what I’ve been looking for!
I found the perfect things to include in a Spring break gift basket for our favorite teachers!
Teachers spend so much of their own money trying to create a fun and safe educational experience for our children. I love the chance to give them something practical, effective, and safe for the kids! I decided to give our favorite teachers everything they need to get ahead on Spring cleaning in their classrooms, plus a few essentials like tissues and paper plates. I put together a basket with all-purpose cleaner, paper towels, tissues, and paper plates. The kids wanted to make something for their teachers too, so we made Bling Bunnies out of Ology™ toilet paper and paper towel rolls!
Check out how we made eco-friendly bunnies!
We painted the rolls and added a little glitter to give the bunnies some bling!
The kids loved shaking on the glitter!
We flattened one of the rolls and cut off 1/4 inch bunny ears.
We taped two circles together to make the ears
We didn’t have any craft eyes so we used hard white candy and markers. Voila!
