Remember that feeling when you buy a new Goldfish? Carrying your Goldfish home in the clear plastic bag, placing it carefully next to you on the seat of the car? Now you can try to get that same feeling when you carry your garbage out to the curb with these Goldfish garbage bags. Oh yay, you say? Well if you live in the UK you may. These Happy Sacks are available for purchase in London. We just might order some of them very soon so they could arrive in time for April Fools Day in the US. Smells a Little Fishy to you too? What do you think?
Did you know that many Goldfish, if properly cared for, can live up to 40 years?
Paint up some Rainbow Toast with the Kiddos this weekend, a super Recipe for Fun from Share and Remember.
We used flavored Jello in favorite colors and a small amount of milk for our paint. Turning a blind eye to the nutritional value, white bread seems to be the ideal canvas for this art project. Any little paint brushes will do…then turn your budding artists free and let them paint away.
After the paint has been applied, pop the bread into the toaster or oven to turn the bread into Rainbow Toast.
Today is National Bird Day 2012! The study of birds has been a fashionable pastime ever since the Victorian Era, and the term “bird watching” first appeared as the title of a book in 1901. According to a 2009 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service survey, today, one in every five Americans is a birdwatcher. This is defined as anyone who has traveled for the primary purpose of observing birds or has closely observed and identified birds around the home.
Since the late 19th century, bird protection has become an increasingly important issue. Birds are among the most popular animals in the exotic pet trade, and most birds in captive breeding programs are kept there solely for commercial gain.
In an attempt to put an end to bird captivity, every year Born Free USA, the Animal Protection Institute, and the Avian Welfare Coalition team up in support of National Bird Day. Today, bird enthusiasts and activists around the United States are asked to take action on behalf of captive birds. Learn more about National Bird Day and what you can do to help!
In much of North America, winter can be a difficult time for birds. The days are short, and nights are often cold and long. The natural food supply has been consumed or is hidden by snow. Most insects are dead or dormant. Water can be hard to find, and food needed to provide the energy to keep birds warm might be scarce.
Befriend your neighborhood birds!
