Friday Finds

Happy Friday from all your friends here at Scratch or Sniff!

On Thursday afternoons our writers have a quick internet discussion about some of the best things we’ve seen that week! The result? Friday Finds!


Fun Finds

Why I Got Rid of My Wardrobe – One of my favorite things I read this week. And that I hope to implement in the near future! 12 outfits. I can do this. “This experience has taught me that no organizational system will help me organize my space—the only solution that will last is to dramatically cut down on the number of possessions that I own.”

Friday Finds: Kiwi Crate and Lego Chain Reactions

Kiwi Crate – One of the things I am looking at for Levi this summer. “We design projects for kids ages 4-8 that inspire creativity and pique curiosity.” Also if you have a younger kid they have created “Koala Crate” as well as “Tinker Crate” for 9-14+ or “Doodle Crate” for 9-16+. “Kiwi Crate was created to fulfill that wish and to celebrate kids’ natural creativity and curiosity. We want to make it fun, easy, and delightful to spend time building, exploring and creating together.”

LEGO Chain Reactions: Design and build amazing moving machines – Levi is practically begging me for this book. Even though it says it is too old for him! “LEGO Chain Reactions is packed full of ideas, instructions, and inspiration for 10 LEGO machines that spin, swing, pivot, roll, lift, and drop. Each machine alone is awesome, but put them together and you get incredible chain reactions. Our book includes 33 special LEGO elements that combine with basic bricks from your collection to make your machines go.”


Allergy, Asthma and Eczema Related

Friday Finds: food allergy action month

Food Allergy Action Month – We are planning a few cool things as well! “In 1998, the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network, now FARE, created Food Allergy Awareness Week to educate the public about food allergies, a potentially life-threatening medical condition. This year’s awareness week falls on May 10-16, 2015, but they will have activities and ways to get involved throughout the entire month of May for Food Allergy Action Month.”

Burt’s Bees Baby – One of our favorite baby clothes line is featured on Zulily again! Grab these adorable organic cotton onesies and sleepers for almost 50% off. “Nurture your baby bee with a little help from Burt’s Bees Baby. This special line is filled with organic cotton apparel that’s as soft as soft can be. This brand’s history of wholesome products and culture of caring is worth buzzing about!”

Friday Finds: Burts Bees and American Airlines

American Airlines Won’t Accommodate Your Nut AllergiesTiffany wrote this awesome article for us this week. We’re hoping that more awareness is raised and companies like American Airlines begin to change their policies!

Self-Administering Epinephrine – From a 12 year old’s perspective. Thank you Susan for being brave and sharing! “I suspect (strongly) that there aren’t many twelve-year-olds our there who have to stop to think how many times they have self-injected their epinephrine. For better or for worse, Susan has become one of those kids.”
