How to fill balloons with goodies!


This is a great idea for kids birthday parties, balloons with surprise inside. Start with some large balloons. Cut out a bottle as shown in the picture and use it as a funnel. Take a balloon, roll up the neck a bit and carefully stretch it over the mouth of the funnel. Then, carefully start inserting the candy, treats and money, stretching the balloon as you go.

Gently slide the neck of the balloon off  the bottle mouth. When Tonia from The Gunny Sack was making the birthday balloons, she wanted to fit a lot of stuff in them. So, after stuffing as much as she could into the balloons and taking them off the bottle, she blew up the balloon so that the candy fell to the bottom. Such a cool idea and the kids will love this.

Natural remedy for acid reflux or heartburn

The symptoms of heartburn can easily be relieved by people by making this unique tea. It is extremely beneficial because it has the capability of reducing the acid that is found in the stomach.  Peppermint is also part of some variants of this remedy, but it should not be included as it renders the tea ineffective.

The tea can be made by taking equal quantities of lavender and anise seeds. Distilled water has to be boiled and should not be more than two and a half cups. Take one teaspoon of the herbal mixture and pour the boiling water over it. Wait for 3 to 5 minutes before straining the tea. Add a natural sweetener like honey. 8oz of this tea should be taken in the morning and evening for getting results.
