It’s the summer and kids just can’t get enough splash-time fun. Swimming parks, Slip n’ Slides, water balloons—and now—the water blob. Intrinsically fun by nature, this waterbed-like contraption is a great way to stay cool, and make some fond, silly, and splashy memories.

 

#1: The Individual Blob

water fun

This is a fantastic tutorial that shows you how to make individualized blobs. Who says that blobs were meant to share? We love the sea-animals-floating-inside touch.

 

#2: The Big Blob

For those of you who are more the sharing type—or the wrestling type—the big blob is your blob of choice. This tutorial calls for a giant roll of plastic sheeting and duct tape. Read more here.

 

#3: The Glow Blob

Woah! Tubular! Because we love all things glow-y. All it takes is a little glow-pill powder (ordered online) to make this radical blob. It will go perfectly next to your early 2000’s lava lamp. Just make sure it’s double (or triple!) sealed. Click here.

 

#4: The Baby Blob

So maybe you’re really excited to make a blob, but your child isn’t quite ready to take the challenge. This mini baby blob is a perfect starter to get them ready for blobs  in the years to come. Also, it’s a great sensory toy! Go here.

It’s summertime! The kids are out of school and they have way too much time on their hands. One way to keep them busy is to feed their entrepreneurial spirits—and nothing sparks creativity like an inspiring business stand! Whether your kids want to sell lemonade, hot dogs, temporary tattoos, or psychiatric advice, they will need a solid place of business to get their operations running. Here are some DIY stand ideas we’ve found to get your creative stand-making juices flowing, after all, building the stand should be half the fun, right?

Idea # 1: Classic Re-Salvaged Wood Stand

Re-Salvaged Wood Stand

We like the durability of this stand. It will take more than a few fiscal years before it will need to be replaced. This blogger claims to have built this highly sturdy enterprise facility for just $3. Check out the details here.

Idea # 2: PVC Pipe Canopy Stand

PVC Pipe Canopy Stand

This stand is for those of you in sunny country. A baking sun may seriously devalue your goods (as well as diminish aloe vera supplies). Stay cool in the shade with this portable canopy model that can be used with any table. Go here.

Idea #3: Wooden Crate Stand

Wooden Crate Stand

While you may find many variations of this building approach across the internet, we especially love this beautifully designed stand featured here. The method is simple: use wood-slatted crates to build your stand!

Idea #4: Creative Cardboard Stand

Creative Cardboard Stand

This is for the artsy-fartsy, low-budget entrepreneur. The supplies include mostly cardboard and paint. Perhaps not the longest lasting stand, but it comes with shade and allows for an artistic touch. Click here.

Idea #5: “Flip-it” Furniture Stand

"Flip-It" Furniture Stand

Do you love rescuing old, abandoned things and making them useful again? Then the “Flip-It” Furniture Stand is just for you! Find a tasteless old cabinet or bed stand for cheap (or free!), nail a sign post to it, and paint it a trendy new color. Voila! Consider your furniture flipped. Follow the tutorial here.

Kid to Kid in Setubal, Portugal

Setubal, Portugal—June 22, 2015—The Kid to Kid franchise is excited to award the Store of the Month award for May to owners Rita and Diogo Madaleno of the Kid to Kid in Setubal, Portugal. The Kid to Kid Setubal store was selected from more than 100 franchise stores across the U.S. and Portugal for outstanding sales performance.

Even though it is located in one of the poorest parts of the Lisbon area, the Setubal Kid to Kid franchise is posting strong sales as they serve the community buying and selling the best things kids outgrow. “The Madalenos have succeeded in creating a very successful Kid to Kid store despite significant challenges in the past year,” said Shauna Sloan, founder of Kid to Kid.

Within a year after the Madalenos opened their Kid to Kid store in Setubal, a new mall opened across town which impacted all retail stores within the surrounding areas. Taking a proactive approach, the Madalenos relocated their store closer to the mall to a much larger space (4500 square feet) – and they did it in a record 5 days’ time. In the first full month in the new store, the Setubal store’s sales ranking jumped from 13th to 3rd in Portugal as total sales increased by 99 percent.

“As soon as we moved to the new location, which is much more visible and convenient, we immediately saw an increase in the number of customers who are discovering the benefits of shopping and selling at Kid to Kid,” said Diogo Madeleno. “In addition to tens of thousands of gently used clothing, toys, and baby gear, we have plenty of affordable new products like car seats and other baby equipment.”

Rita and Diogo are the parents of 4 growing children ages 3 to 13.  “As parents, we understand the importance of watching the family budget and that’s what attracted us to the Kid to Kid franchise,” said Rita Madaleno. “We are so happy that we can provide our community with affordable high quality items families need.”

The Setubal Kid to Kid is the Madaleno’s second store. They opened their first store in the Expo area of Lisbon.

Uptown Cheapskate and Kid to Kid resale franchise in Boise, ID.

New Uptown Cheapskate and Kid to Kid in Boise.

BOISE, ID—June 15, 2015—Local business owner Bill Long is proud to announce the grand opening of his new resale store, Uptown Cheapskate, on Thursday, June 25 at 4:00 pm. Unlike a traditional thrift store, this trendy teen and young adult fashion reseller, located at 1574 N. Wildwood Way in Boise, pays shoppers cash for their secondhand clothes, shoes and other apparel items and resells them at highly discounted prices.

The first 50 shoppers in line at the grand opening will receive mystery gift cards worth up to $50. Businesses within the area will also join in on the grand opening celebration by providing special offers.

The new Uptown Cheapskate store in Boise is located next door to Long’s other resale franchise, Kid to Kid. A sister concept to Uptown Cheapskate, Kid to Kid buys and resells children’s clothing, toys, books and baby gear. The Kid to Kid store recently moved to its larger location a month ago and will be celebrating its grand re-opening on June 25 as well. A face painter and a balloon-animal artist will be at the Kid to Kid store from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm.

“I’m excited to bring the Uptown Cheapskate concept to the Boise area and offer an affordable way to dress fashionably,” said Long. “Having both of my stores located next to each other will hopefully make it more convenient for my customers whose children grew up with Kid to Kid to now shop at Uptown Cheapskate.”

For several weeks, the store has been open to the public to purchase customers’ gently used fashions, filling the racks in preparation for the grand opening. Customers will then be able to come in and shop brand name and designer clothing and accessories at up to 70 percent less than retail.

Uptown Cheapskate focuses on buying current styles of apparel, shoes and accessories that appeal to a wide range of teens and young adults. After the grand opening, Uptown Cheapskate will continue to pay customers cash or in-store credit for their gently used items.

In addition to carrying hundreds of recycled items, the new Uptown Cheapskate store will also offer many new products including jewelry, shoes and assorted clothing items.

For more information, visit their store website or find Uptown Cheapskate – West Boise on Facebook for frequent updates, pictures and happenings in the store. For Uptown Cheapskate franchise information, visit the Franchise Opportunity page.
