Candy Race Car – Great for Kids Parties

It is hard coming up with something for a classroom treat for holidays or for a child’s party. My son, Spencer loves taking something for his friends at school.

This treat isn’t healthy but it is easy to make and your kids will love it!

Candy Race Car- Great for Kids Parties

First you will need a glue gun, glue sticks (both I purchased at the dollar store.), mini Hershey chocolate bars, Tootsie rolls, chocolate coins and juice boxes.

You can also change it up. If you want instead of Tootsie Rolls, try a chocolate that is small like one to use for the front fender. You can choose a different small chocolate bar too. The sky is the limit on how you design yours.  Choose a juice box that is your child’s favourite.

I found mints in a wrapper didn’t give the same effect as a chocolate coin did for the wheel look. And the Hershey chocolate bar did look like it was a wing with the side flaps of the package.

Candy Race Car- Great for Kids Parties

Figure out how many cars that you wish to make and decide on the amount of items you need.  For one car you need one Hershey chocolate bar, one Tootsie roll , four chocolate coins and one juice box.

Just put a dab of glue on each coin and apply it to the juice box sides. Then put glue on the Tootsie roll and place it where the front of the car is located. Lastly put glue on the bottom of the Hershey chocolate bar and place it on the top back area of the race car.

It is that simple. And your kids will love the race cars for themselves and their friends!

Let me know if you make this for your child’s class or birthday parties in the comments below. I love hearing about how the kids enjoyed them.

Oreck® Airvantage HEPA Air Purifier

Oreck Air Vantage HEPA Air Purifier

 

I have a love/hate with spring and summer. The reason for that is allergy season. My son and I both have seasonal allergies but Spencer has them worse. He is allergic to dust, pollen, feathers and grass. So that is why I have a love/hate relationship with spring and summer. I love being able to go out and not freeze or worry about snow. But I hate dealing with the allergy season for myself or my son. I hate seeing my poor son deal with all these environmental allergies.

The Oreck® AirVantage™ HEPA Air Purifier changed my feelings about my love/hate reaction to spring and summer.

3-Stage Filteration System

The Oreck® AirVantage™ HEPA Air Purifier traps allergens, dust and odor with the advanced 3-stage filteration; HEPA, Charcoal odor remover, and VOC filter. If you find you have a lot of dust or have an issue with your house smelling musty. The Oreck® AirVantage™ HEPA Air Purifier is the purifier you would want in your home to help clean your air.

The HEPA and VOC filter lasts 6 months and the Charcol odor remover
lasts 3 months I love that it traps all the dust, allergens and odor without having to keep changing them. There is also an indicator light that comes on when it is time to change your filter so there is no guessing on when you last put a new filter in. Also a handy remote control so you don’t have to get up to the purifier to turn it on. Very handy if you are in your bedroom and don’t want to get out of your bed to have it running during the night. Another bonus is that it is quiet. So it won’t disturb you while it is running.

Oreck® AirVantage HEPA Air Purifier -review

I ran the Oreck® AirVantage™ HEPA Air Purifier for a month at various times when we needed it. Then I decided at the end of the month to it up and check the filter. I was shocked by the dust and pollen in the filter. I could see how it was cleaning my home. I have to say I was very impressed.

The Oreck® AirVantage™ HEPA Air Purifier also traps odor. My house is old and sometimes when we have been gone away for a weekend without airing out the house, I found that it has an odor that sometimes comes with older homes. The Oreck® AirVantage™ HEPA Air Purifier gets rid of that quickly and leaves the house smelling fresh. Cleaner air for your whole family to breathe.

The Oreck® AirVantage™ HEPA Air Purifier is available at Canadian Tire in August 2016.
