ATTENTION PARENTS, PRE-SCHOOL TEACHERS, and CRAFTERS:
Do you have a favorite craft recipe for homemade bubble soap, play dough, super goo or finger paints? Then I need your help.
I’ve always wanted to add a craft site to the Surfnetkids family of sites, but it wasn’t until I read about Play-Doh’s fiftieth anniversary (and the release of Play-Doh Perfume!) that I got to work on the idea. But in order to finish it up, I need your craft recipes for fun, homemade stuff like clay, super goo, silly putty, finger paints, glitter and more.
Have a craft recipe (or two) to share? Here are the links:

See ya on the Net,

#3. Sun Protection

Sun Protection Printable (** for premium members only)
Schools out! Summer sunshine is here. But don’t leave the house without your sunglasses, brimmed hat, and sunscreen. Why bother? Because despite the sun’s beneficial effects on our mood, even a small amount of daily exposure can lead to skin damage and cancer. Learn more with these five best-bet sites for summer sun safety.
EEK! Hole in the Ozone Layer?
“In the late 1920s, chemicals called chlorofluorocarbons (or CFCs) were invented. These chemicals were not poisonous and didn’t harm fabrics, plants or people. Companies thought they were great and used them in refrigerators, air conditioners, Styrofoam packaging, and spray cans.” But in the 1970s, scientists discovered that fifty years of CFC usage had harmed the earth’s ozone layer, exposing us to harmful UV rays. This illustrated one-page article is a good introduction to the long term environmental and human damage caused by CFCs.
EPA: SunWise Kids
“This web site will help you learn more about the harmful effects of the sun and teach you ways to protect yourself. With fun activities like the Who Wants to Be SunWise trivia game and action steps, such as wearing a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen, you will learn simple steps to protect yourself.” Best clicks are the games in Survivor Challenges, and the explanation of the UV Index. Teachers can sign up for free classroom materials by clicking on SunWise Home, and following the Schools link.
Sunshine, from the research department of L’Oreal cosmetics, is my pick of the day. Divided into five sections, Sunshine starts with an excellent explanation of the short- and long-term effects of sun exposure. Next it delves into our body’s natural defenses (the production of melanin, the tanning pigment) skin types, and sun solutions. This site is so good, every page is a best click! If any of the scientific words stump you, you’ll find a glossary link at the bottom of every page.
