#Magnetic #Putty Making Kit Review

I know slime was, and maybe still is super popular, but putty is pretty cool too! I loved Silly Putty when I was a kid!

We got Crazy Ceezer's Hand Putty to review. The best part is that it's magnetic. The second best part is that it comes in all kinds of fun colors!

It Comes With:
  • The Putty
  • A Carrot for a Nose
  • Two Googly Eyes
  • A Small Square Magnet 
  • A Cute Tin to Store Everything in

The magnet really digs into the putty after awhile because it's magnetic. It's fun to play with for sure!

  • Blue (the color we got to review)
  • Gold (Isaak's favorite color)
  • Purple
  • Green
  • Silver
  • Black
It would be fun if they added red and orange. I don't know why, but those 2 colors came to mind. The gold isn't super sparkly, so I'm not sure if it would be Isaak's favorite color. It's pretty cool though!

It’s a Great Stress Reliever!

Isaak's my kid that says, "I'm bored!" a lot. He's also the same kid that makes toys out of nothing practically. I handed him this putty to review. He made a penguin right away. The kid has to be stimulated all the time it seems. I think this is a great toy for him.

No Bad Additives

There's nothing in the putty that would effect the skin allergy wise. I'm glad they put that on Amazon. We have a lot of allergy issues, so this is an important fact to me.

Get this on Amazon Prime: for $12.69.

Do you like playing with slime, or putty? What color would you choose?

Organinka Cacao Powder Review

Cacao Powder is amazing!

It has a chocolate taste, but it's not super strong. It's just right to fit into any smoothie, and it can be added to many recipes. I think it's a great add on for breads and desserts.

About Cacao Powder:
  • It’s Raw
  • It's Organic
  • It's Non-GMO
  • It's a Superfood
  • It's a herbaceous plant native to the high Andean Mountains of Peru, mainly in the regions of Junin and Pasco
  • It stabilizes and controls blood pressure
  • Known to relieve insomnia
  • Helps reduce stress and tiredness
  • It provides energy and mental clarity
Today's Smoothie: 
  • Spinach Leaves
  • Frozen Bananas
  • 2 Probiotics
  • 2 Scoops of Protein Powder
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • Mint
  • Cacao Powder

You can get 16 ounces of Organinka Cacao Powder on Amazon for $12.99 on Prime!

A little bit goes a long way! I do have to say that I wish the bag was smaller. The amount of powder is way less than the bag size. I like as little packaging as possible.

The taste is wonderful! What would you use Organinka Cacao Powder for?

Organinka Maca Powder Review

I love breakfast time! It's my favorite meal of the day! 

I try to make it semi healthy. We always have something green on our plates, some form of protein, a carb, and a smoothie with more greens, more protein, and fruit.

I put Maca Powder in our chocolate chip waffles this morning. It has more calcium than milk does. It's nice to know that this meal will fill up our boy's bellies. Isaak has basketball games on Saturdays, so he needs more protein added to his diet.


  • 2 Cups of Whole Wheat, All Purpose, or Bread Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Maca Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Coconut Sugar or Brown Sugar
  • 2 Mashed Bananas
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Vanilla
  • 6 Tablespoons Coconut Oil (Melted)
  • 1 2/3 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk, Cashew Milk, or Cow's Milk
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips
The waffles were so good! Actually the whole meal was great! I was only bummed that I had to wait to eat because I needed to take pictures and a video. ;)

About Organinka Maca Powder:

  • It's organic!
  • It's non GMO!
  • It's a superfood!
  • It's from a herbaceous plant native to the high Andean Mountains of Peru.
  • Because it's from a plant I was expecting it to be green, but the powder is actually a tan color.
  • It's comes with 16 ounces in the bag. I do wish the bag was a bit smaller to reduce packaging. The bag is bigger than the powder it holds. 
  • It's $12.99, which is a great price.
  • It's versatile! You can add it to any bread product, smoothie,  hot or cold cereal, and many desserts. 
  • It's on Amazon Prime, so if you're a Prime Member you get free shipping:

Have you tried Maca Powder before?

Random Tid Bits

  1. It's been an odd few weeks. I'm still so tired from different people in my family getting sick. This back and forth weather doesn't help. Classes started up again a few weeks ago, my first year students actually do much more work than expected, so I've pumped up my lectures more.

  2. It has been rough with emotions. I found out that a student tried to commit suicide. This student is so nice, so in tuned with what I'm teaching, empathetic towards others, and I've been worried about her. It's not about school, it's the fact that she lives with an ex. Don't let teens live with their boyfriends. I've seen over and over again break-ups happen, and then disaster strikes. 

  3. Yesterday I thought we were triple booked. Nope! Mica's school had an Open House. I was excited to see what he's been up to. We got there, and one of Mica's teacher's said, "Hi! You guys look familiar. Mica congrats on the award you got! So you guys just looking at this middle school for your other one?" I said, "Yes." Then I understood that it was a recruiting Open House, not an Open House to see the classrooms. I asked Isaak if he wants a tour. He didn't, so we left. Off to a library to wait for basketball practice to start, since it too is in the same part of town. 

  4. At the library I spotted a book one of my friends wrote and illustrated. Kind of cool! It's the Time Shifters one.

  5. I also saw that one of my past students did this hilarious video. Note it's much funnier with the sound up! Yes there's butts in it, so if you're not ok with that then don't watch it. It got so many hits, that someone wrote about it here. I was laughing so hard with the boys when we watched it! Are you just as immature as me, and think this video is funny?

WW: Light {Linky}

We went to the KANEKO Light exhibit a few weeks back. I may go again because their mirror room was being repaired. I wanted to see that so bad.

I kept wondering why I only took phone photos. Then it dawned on me that they mentioned that's all I could take. Kind of odd considering that the new Apple phone is supposed to take excellent shots. I don't have the newest, and greatest. I still like the photos I got.

Their big light board that reminded me of Lite-Brite:

 A light fort:

Light Bars:

Have you ever been to a light exhibit?
