Heart-to-Heart with Diane

Hello and Welcome! Isn't raising a family the greatest!? I know I've got the best job in the world, just being Mom! I love sharing things I've discovered that make being "Mom" better, easier or more fulfilling, and that is what this blog is all about. Welcome!

Make Your Own Holograms!

All of the toys we tested for our holiday offerings, this 3D Mirascope got the most "oohs" and "aahs"! Two parabolic mirrors facing each other create a 3-D hologram image! Put the toy frog (included) inside the bowl, and suddenly a frog seems to be sitting up on top. You can't believe your eyes though . . . even if it looks completely real . . . because you can't touch it!

We found a piece of round "wagon wheel" pasta to be the most entertaining. It looked absolutely real and everyone tried to pick it up! Try a coin and no one can resist.

Another great trick is to drop popcorn kernels or blueberries through the opening into the bowl. Instead of disappearing from view, they seem to bounce and "hop" right up on top.

If you have someone to buy for that stumps you, especially a pre-teen or teen, this is just the thing!
It's amazing! And at the right price—just $5.99.

Take a look here!

    Hi Diane, I found you through a mutual friend, Deborah Thomas. She homeschooled her children and told me about you and your amazing success in homeschooling. The reason I'm writing is to see how we can get a copy of our book -Jump Into Reading to you. We think the homeschooling network of home educators would enjoy this book - it is filled with fun activities that encourage children to want to know more about a particular subject. Please let me know how to contact you.
