Milk is one of those magic drinks, providing your body with nine essential nutrients, but to some, it might not taste very magical! Trying to get the proper amount of milk (lactose-free milk, soy, rice or other milk substitute) into kids -- and even adults-- can often be a tough challenge but not anymore! One of the coolest inventions around is available at Turtle Pond Toys;

The OFFICIAL Got Milk? Magic Milk Straws!

The innovative straws are safe: all flavors contain naturally flavoured beads. They’re also gluten and lactose free. Just dip into milk like any straw, take a long drink, and enjoy the rich flavor of strawberry, chocolate, cookies and cream, or vanilla milkshake. Yum! The straws don’t need to be refrigerated either making them an easy item to pack and go. No more wondering if your child drank milk at lunch break!

 Quadrilla is a system of blocks, tracks and accessory pieces that allow the energy of a marble to travel in a make-your-own path. Beautiful Baltic wood tracks and a rainbow of colored blocks, each with a different function, are the starting point for endless contraptions for marbles to drop to a new level, go right or left, swirl in a funnel, or pour out of a teeter totter.

Quadrilla's versatile design allows the child to determine the marble's path and the options are endless. A logical, sturdy product where the process of building is as much fun as the process of playing.

As they twist, turn, and fly down the rails, see the marbles make their way along the paths built. They can be stopped or their direction changed. Marble runs can be very simple in design, or as complex as you can imagine and build. They can be designed and re-designed with few limitations and with special expansion sets, marble runs can keep evolving from your imagination. Choose between Basic, Twist, and Rail sets along with Sound Block extensions Sets, and extension sets for Basic and Try Me sets.

The facts are in and regardless of how the skies may look during a downpour, clean, abundant water is becoming an increasingly rare, valuable and expensive commodity. Teaching children good water management can be a challenge but it's an important lesson. Let's explore some dynamic and fun ways you can help teach your children that a drop of water is a terrible thing to waste. 
   

Investigate for Water Leaks
Kids learn by doing, and nothing helps make them aware of water-wise practices better than asking them to tag along while you look for toilet, faucet and showerhead leaks. Another option is to perform a home water audit with them. A water efficiency checklist can help assess problems in your home and show your kids you mean business when it comes to good water management.

Start a Garden
Nothing teaches the "water is vital for life" lesson better than a garden. Take a year-old seed that's been sitting in an envelope, add some water, and you have a pretty spectacular lesson about the power of H2O. Planting a garden may not teach your kids to count the seconds they run the tap when they brush their teeth, but it still has value. After growing their own sunflowers, they'll value moisture more -- and differently. The concept of water won't be limited to its function as a means of making ice cubes or getting clean.

Install a Rain Barrel
As a grownup, you understand that water resources are limited and dependent on seasonal rainfall. One way to bring that lesson home to your kids is with a rain barrel. A couple of generations ago, rain barrels were on every farm and in many residential neighborhoods across Canada. Families harvested rainwater for practical use the way they harvested potatoes or apples. Installing a rain barrel under a downspout will teach firsthand that the notion of an endless supply of water is really an illusion. An empty rain barrel will be a ready reminder to kids that nature can be erratic and unpredictable.
