Why is putting crazy straws in a box of cereal a good idea?
To prevent all that milk from being left in the bottom of the bowl!
My children don't even realize they are drinking the rest of their milk while they are 'playing' with the straws. (I also like the bowls you can buy with the built in straws for this purpose.) It's becoming more and more of a challenge to get my older kids to drink milk. My youngest still loves it, but the girls have to be 'urged' to drink it. Chocolate milk usually works, but I was pleased that by using the crazy straws, they finished their milk and it was "hassle free"! Anything that makes my kids do like I want without a bunch of fussing is good to me! Kids of all ages can collect and connect the different straws (available in specially marked packages of General Mills cereal) and while they are having fun, they are also increasing their calcium intake! As you know, calcium is very important for strong teeth and bones.

The 'glow cups' were a HUGE hit with my 4 year old! Just check out this video clip...
What a little nut! And yes, the video clip is sideways. I'll learn how to use all my technology one day. Maybe.
