I love this idea

Originally posted on You handmade me {happy}:

It seems that if I don’t run out of pages of old magazines, I won’t stop looking for new ideas on how to recycle all these to the last piece.

This is a classic old origami bookmark style and it’s so easy to make them. Actually, it is also a great craft for kids too! So, grab all your old newspapers and magazines and choose where you want to cut little squares.

I chose to cut papers in squares with sides of 8.5cm. The thing I had to keep in mind was to pick pages that had smaller pictures every time I wanted my bookmark to have more than one colour. I did that because when I folded the pictures, the surface got smaller. So don’t forget that you will have a smaller corner and you won’t have the entire picture to be displayed completely. The picture you want to appear at…

pretend
 2. Throw a doll’s birthday party. Wrap up a few “gifts,” decorate with balloons and streamers, and enjoy a mock — or real — cake.
3. Dress for the weather. Lay out items for different weather conditions, describe a certain day, and ask your child to pick an outfit for it.
4. Open a petting zoo. Place stuffed animals around the room, pet each one, and talk about what they like to eat.
5. Camp out in your living room. Climb into a tent and sleeping bags. Turn on a flashlight, and pretend to eat s’mores.
6. Form a family band. Have everyone grab an instrument and jam to a CD.
7. Imitate animals. Practice hopping like a frog, squirming like a worm, waddling like a duck, and stretching like a cat.
8. Play restaurant. In the real kitchen or a pretend one, alternate between being the customer and the server or chef.
9. Offer horsy rides. Let her bounce on your back while you “neigh” and chew hay.
10. Ride the laundry-bin “school bus.” She’s the passenger, and you’re the driver. Make stops to pick up other kids, and wave bye-bye to the mummies at each stop.
11 Play hide and seek with your stuffed animals. Let your friends find them

raisins

Daily Basics

One of the biggest benefits of eating raisins is that they’re a quick, easy and tasty way to get some of your daily recommended fruit servings. Women should eat at least 1.5 cups of fruit daily and men should have 2 cups, according to ChooseMyPlate.gov. One small box of raisins, which is 1.5 ounces and holds about 90 raisins, fills one-half cup of your daily fruit requirement, plus it only has 129 calories and no fat. The same portion has 1.3 grams of protein, which gives men 2 percent and women 3 percent of their recommended daily intake.

Carbohydrates for Energy

The 34 grams of carbohydrates in one small box of raisins include 26 grams of sugar for rapid energy. If you use sports chews or other sports products to add carbohydrates and improve performance while you exercise or participate in endurance sports, you can get the same benefit from eating raisins, according to research published in the March 2012 issue of the “Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition.” You’ll also get 1.6 grams of fiber, which is 4 percent of men’s and 6 percent of women’s daily intake from just one small box of raisins. About half of the total is soluble fiber that helps lower cholesterol and balance blood sugar.

Iron

Eating raisins every day helps you meet your daily requirement for iron. Even though most of the iron in the body carries oxygen in red blood cells, it’s also present in every cell in your body because it has so many other jobs. It supports your immune system, helps make amino acids and it’s essential for metabolism. Men should consume 8 milligrams and women need 18 milligrams daily, but no one should consume more than 45 milligrams of iron in a day because it can become toxic. You’ll get 0.81 milligrams of iron in one small box of raisins, which is 10 percent of men’s and 5 percent of women’s daily recommended intake.

Potassium

Potassium is able to carry electrical charges that cause muscle contraction and stimulate nerve impulses. It’s especially vital for your heart because potassium regulates the heart beat and also helps lower blood pressure by limiting the effect of sodium. Special structures in your body work constantly to maintain a strict concentration of potassium in the cells. These structures account for about 20 to 40 percent of your resting energy, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. The raisins in a 1.5-ounce box have 322 milligrams or 7 percent of the recommended daily intake of potassium.

You’re the end of my rainbow, my pot of gold.
You’re mommy’s little girl, to have and hold.
A precious gem is what you are.
You’re mommy’s bright and shining star.
You’re sugar, you’re spice,
You’re everything nice,
And you’re mommy’s little girl.

My Dad

lottt

I know this man
Who is dear to my heart
Suddenly one day
It was torn all apart

This man taught me everything
That I needed to know
But I never really listened
Until he had to go

He gave me love
And touched my life
It’s all over now
He no longer has to fight

He tried to teach me
Right for wrong
The day he left
I wasn’t that strong

He is gone now
It is hard to believe
This man is my dad
Who I will never see

But I will see him again
This I know
The day will come
When it’s time for me to go

So, I’ll hold him dear
And close to my heart
Cause the day we meet
I know we’ll never be torn apart.

My daddy looks tough as nails
And hard as metal.
But the truth is easy to tell
He’s sweet and loving
And can always understand me
Patient he is
And he always makes a big difference in my everyday life.
Always managing to put a smile on my face.
Even when his days aren’t so good
My daddy is my hero
He is my best friend who I can always trust
And I don’t have to worry about being misjudged
He is my daddy
And above everybody he is who makes me feel very happy
The truth is I love my daddy

I rubbed my eyes

As I jumped out of bed.

Brush your teeth,”

My mother said.

I opened my curtains wide,

I could not believe my eyes.

I saw a very large frog

Absolutely full of spots

Floating.

Or wait!

Could it be a dog?

Is it barking? Or is it croaking?

Then came that voice,

Have you brushed your teeth yet?”

Then the frog stopped and pushed his nose,

Against the glass,

What time is it?” he cried.

I left my watch at my bed side.”

My mother then ran up the stairs

I waved goodbye to spotty frog,

He started barking like a dog.

It sounded very much like,

Have you brushed your teeth yet?”

Traveling to another country is exciting, adventuresome, and sometimes rude – if you are not familiar with the culture, that is. To help travelers prepare for overseas trips, Nikko Hotels International has gathered etiquette tips from its staff around the world. Below are some lesser-known formalities in various countries.

United Arab Emirates In the UAE, it is considered rude to show the sole of your foot or shoe when sitting at a gathering.

Mexico Try not to leave your credit card or tip directly on the table, because this could be seen as rude. Place the card or tip into a bill holder or tip tray and hand it to a server directly.

Germany Buy local, drink local. Germans prefer beer from their hometowns.

China In China, loyalty to a business partner is often measured by the size of a gift, but be warned: giving a clock is considered taboo because its pronunciation is the same as the word “end” in Chinese. Also, as is common throughout Asia, it is very important to never do or say anything to cause your Chinese associates to “lose face.” A simple comment such as “you didn’t know that?” can cause someone to sever all relations.

Japan Demonstrate that you know the proper way to eat Japanese cuisine. When you eat sushi, don’t dip the rice in soy sauce, only the fish portion.

Vietnam Exchanging business cards follows a strict etiquette that is similar to other Asian countries. Your card must be presented with both hands. Read the card immediately and place it in front of you during the meeting.

Malaysia It’s important to be aware of certain Malaysian dress formalities. The color yellow is reserved for royalty, so if one is attending a formal dinner with members of the royal family in attendance, it is best to avoid this color.
