Birthday Presents

All kid's birthdays last a week, right?
First, there was the actual birthday, with a new mountain bike & a fancy hibachi dinner at Sakura...his favorite restaurant.
Then the actual birthday party.
First, a Bridgeport Sound Tigers game with the buddies. Then cake & presents with family, at our house.
And, finally, cupcakes at school yesterday.

He got lots of wonderful & thoughtful gifts. A few stood out as ones I will definitely look out for next time one of the Bozo's has a birthday party to attend.
First, is this Color-In Tattoo Kit from Creativity for Kids.
It comes with black & white temporary tattoos, that you can color in with tattoo markers. Or, you can use the markers to make your own freestyle tattoos.

We've been having a blast using it!

He also got another great one from Creativity for Kids. (I love their stuff) This one is a Shrinky Dink kit.
As a kid, I loved Shrinky Dinks, and thought starting up my own Shrinky Dink jewelry company would be a great idea.
That's why I love this. It includes everything you need to make keychains & necklaces.

And last, but not least, is a living EcoSphere from his Mima. It is one of the coolest things ever!

The Original EcoSphere® is the world's first totally enclosed ecosystem - a complete, self-contained and self-sustaining miniature world encased in glass. Easy to care for, an EcoSphere is an incredible learning tool that can provide powerful insights about life on our own planet... and provide a glimpse of technology that's shaping the future of space exploration.

It contains 4 tiny, bright red, shrimp & enough green algae for them to survive.
The last thing I need is another pet to care for. But, these pets only require 6-8 hours of indirect natural, or artificial light a day, and nothing else. They live an average of 2-3 years, but can live past 10.
It is a truly fascinating & beautiful little world your child can witness & learn from.
