How To Make a Robot out of a Watermelon!

I originally saw this post via Spaceships and Laserbeams . They currently have great ideas for a robot themed party!

However this was originally posted on the National Watermelon Promotion Board. Did you know that there was such a BOARD for watermelons? Who would have thunk!!


I must admit it looks a bit complicated!! I am "crafty challenged" as I like to say :) However they do have step by step instructions here.  Also check out these great gift ideas for your boy.

Rainy Days Happen

Rainy Days Happen – Check out Rain Gear for Your Boy

Boys love to play in the rain, and usually they don’t mind getting wet. In fact, it’s a big adventure for them, getting soaked to the skin, pretending they’re in a storm at sea or struggling to find their way through a monsoon on an alien planet! But sometimes Mom doesn’t want her little adventurer to get wet, especially if she’s sending him off to school or daycare. That’s when rain coats and umbrellas are important, so he’s not sitting around in wet clothes all day.



Rain gear for boys needs to be utilitarian, but there’s no reason why it can’t also be fun and stylish. Our boys clothing boutique has a great selection of rain gear your boy will be delighted to wear.

It’s a universal truth that little boys like dinosaurs, so you can’t go wrong with a dinosaur umbrella. It’s strong and durable, and loads of fun. You can bet that your boy will love to carry it, and probably all his friends will want one as well. Or, if you’ve got a budding astronaut, blast him off to school in style with our cool outer space umbrella! And don’t forget the young pirate ship captain in your family – our pirate umbrella will keep him dry, unless he’s captured by a rival gang of pirates and made to walk the plank, in which case an umbrella probably won’t be much help.


For days when the wind is too high to make an umbrella practical, a dinosaur raincoat is just the thing. Your little boy will love the frolicking dinosaurs on the front of the jacket, and the stegosaurus armor on the sleeves is great fun - watch him lumber off into the rain, knowing that a bit of bad weather isn’t going to stop Dino Boy! Or if he’s more of a young Sir Galahad type, we have just the thing – a raincoat that looks like a suit of armor, complete with helmet and dragon!

Dinosaurs are not Extinct


Who said Dinosaurs were Extinct? Maybe the real Dinosaurs back in the day are long gone. However
as you look around, you see Dinosaurs everyday. Triceratops, Broncosaurus, Tyranasaurus, I could go on and on. We see replicas of them in Parks and Playgrounds for children to play on.

There are numerous cartoons and movies made about Dinosaurs. Remember the Flintstones? they had a dinosaur named Dino. Or how about Jurassic Park?  Children like the idea of dinosaurs. They are cool. They are unique. They aren't a dog or cat, something you see every day. Dinosaurs are different which is why they so popular today. Mainly in little boys. I haven't found a little boy between the ages of 5 and 10 that can't name at least 10 or more dinosaurs.

Dinosaurs make great gifts, from the plush stuffed ones right up to the hard plastic molded ones that
can be taken outside to play in the sand. A person can't go wrong choosing a dinosaur gift for a little
boy. There are so many Dinosaur products to chose from. dinosaur backpacks, erasers, notebooks and folders, for those who go to school.
When in doubt, there are tee shirts sold in all kinds of stores for boys, boutique clothing stores for boys and other places as well.There are dinosaur flip flops for boys , and other dinosaur apparel for boys.   

Even little boys, toddlers and babies have a line of dinosaur clothing that have the dinosaurs on their tee shirts, shorts, pants, or pajama's. Of course the older boys have dinosaur pajamas too. Who wouldn't want to go to bed without their T-Rex pajama's on?

The market today has even cornered sheets, pillowcases, comforters, rugs and curtains to make up an
entire dinosaur theme in a boy's room. There are decals for the walls, lamps, nightlights you name it,
I'm sure it can be found. The most important thing is that the boys are learning about dinosaurs and that they walked this earth many, many years ago. It's a pretty neat history lesson to learn and a
unique way to learn it.

Boy Dinosaur clothing and accessories are not extinct!

Most boys love dinosaurs.  And most want to wear cool dinosaur apparel. Whether it's a cool funky t-shirt or hip and stylish shoes.

Let's face it, most boys love to get dirty. Running around the yard roaring at things or people. Heck just simply running around. As a mom of a boy who like dinosaurs--it was difficult to find stylish dinosaur clothing for boys. Most shirts had too much writing and graphics that it made it difficult to see the dinosaur. Or shoes would be plain white and have a single tiny dinosaur on the side.

After searching high and low, I have found that good quality boy's dinosaur clothing and accessories are not extinct!

In The Beginning

Hi, I am a work at home mom of one little boy. He was born with a connective tissue disorder. Working outside the house was not an option. So I decided to sell online. I started out with eBay, amazon and now I own my own site .

Many boys go through various phases during boyhood. Some dream of being a pirate. Going off to find their loot.  Then you have those boys who love dinosaurs. They love to explore, dig and roam the house yelling roar!!! Some love monsters, airplanes all things boys. 

I have found that there are very few website dedicated to boys. That is how I came up with the idea For Your Boy. A boy's clothing boutique for boys who love all things boys.
