Ah!  The signs of Spring are everywhere … YAY! … The snow is melting, new leaves are sprouting on the trees, flowers are blooming in the gardens, new baby birds are chirping away …. and of course, in many parts of our country, the winds are vigorously helping usher in the season …

We love this seasonal Easter Egg anemometer (instrument for measuring wind force and speed).  All it takes to make it is an inexpensive analog multimeter, some super glue, and a few other supplies you probably already have, on hand, in your tool chest.  (For complete instructions click on the Instructables website link here.)

Another sign of Spring is that Earth Day is approaching.  April 22, 2010 will mark the 40th anniversary of Earth Day.  The inspiration for Earth Day came about as a way to celebrate our environment and this amazing planet Earth!   Today millions of people celebrate by spending the day cleaning up beaches and fields; planting trees; walking to work; helping educate children about recycling and the importance of maintaining a healthy environment and a multitude of other ways.  There are lots of websites dedicated to helping people learn about things they can do, on an individual or group basis, to make the world a better place.  Check out the U.S. government’s Environmental Protection Agency website for some history and tips about this special day.

Super Glue is a great product to have on hand for your reuse/recycle projects.  So many people use it to fix and repair things that would otherwise have to be thrown away.  It’s amazing how easy it is to bring things back to their original condition with just a drop or two of super glue.  It is instant gratification and helps save the Earth a little bit each time, too! 

Super Glue can also be used to make something new out of something old.  We love to hear from the creative crafters who use our adhesive products to make something entirely new.  Often these new artifacts are created using recycled items.  We love to highlight these projects in our blog as they are really impressive. 

For this blog, we’ll close with a clever, cute, recycle idea using the same plastic Easter Eggs that created the Easter Egg anemometer we discussed earlier …. Easter Rattlesnakes!

It’s a silly idea, but it looks like a fun project that will keep the kids busy long after the last Easter Egg is found at the end of the hunt!  Directions for this great reuse/recycle project can be found on the Instructables website.  All it takes is glue and YOU!

We’re heading into a brand new season of the year!  We wish you and yours all the joys that a spectacular Spring can bring!!
