Glee Make Your Own Gummies Kit

Hey Neighbors!

I really like the Glee Kits ($13.95).  We have reviewed a couple of different ones over the past two years.  My daughters really have fun creating with these kits.  This time she made Gummies.  The two girls (12 and 15) of them did this one by themselves.

Here is the contents of the kit.
The kit includes:
Sour Mix
Colored and Flavored Sugar
Powdered Seaweed
Molding Starch
Instructions and the story of Carrageenan

This is dried seaweed.  Yes, seaweed.

You wash the seaweed and boil it a few minutes until the carrageenan is extracted.

According to the directions you wash the seaweed and then boil it a few minutes to extract the carrageenan.  After you do this you can discard the seaweed.  You then mix in the sugar, boil it again and thenpour it into the molds you have made in the molding starch.

Molding Starch.

Becoming gelatinous.
 They really had fun doing this by themselves.  They did share the gummies with their siblings.

Add coloring and flavoring.

From the Box:
We're all used to eating food from plants that grow in the earth-carrots, corn, raspberries... But how about food from plants that grow in the sea?  You might think of seaweed as that slimy green stuff you find on the beach.  But it's more than that; people in Japan and China have been eating "sea vegetables" for hundreds of years.  Even though we're not used to collecting and eating whole seaweed here, it's there hiding in many things we eat and use every day- like toothpaste!
Almost done.

Setting up.

Coating with sugar.

If you visit the Glee Gum website there is a tab for a store locator.  This way you can find the store closest to you that sells Glee Gum.  Also if you visit the newsletter page, there is a coupon you can use for Glee Gum.

One neighbor will receive a Make Your Own Gummies Kit from Glee.

Disclosure:I received no monetary compensation for this post.  I did receive a Glee Kit for review purposes. All quotes in red are taken from the sponsor's website.  All thoughts and opinions are mine.

Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes).

This monitor comes witha high and low alert so you can make sure you stay right where you are supposed to. Not overdoing it, yet not taking it too easy!
