Klutz has more crafty kits to keep you occupied but are they a hit or a miss? Kidzworld gives 'em a test run for you! Check it out.

The lazy days of summer are stretching out before you so you're going to have to occupy yourself fast before mom decides to alleviate your boredom with a few extra chores. Klutz has come to the rescue with more of their unique craft ideas. Let's check 'em out!

Klutz Paper Stained Glass

If you can color in the lines and count to 12, you can design wicked strained glass windows for you and your friends. Klutz's color-by-number kit contains 12 double-ended felts, 20 designs and even a couple of frames for your masterpieces. Each design has two different color schemes you can follow - or you can just get down with your artistic self by choosing your own colors. The transparent paper allows light to shine through your artwork and is smooth enough to prevent those horrible paper "nubbies" you usually get when coloring on regular paper with felts. The downside is that the felts can dry out before you make your way through all 20 designs - so make sure to keep them tightly capped when you're not using them.

Klutz Paper Fashions

Why buy off the rack when you can design your own haute stuff? This Klutz kit brings out your inner Gucci with its design stencils, oodles of patterned papers, sequins, ribbons and too-cute tiny hangers. There are literally hours of fun packed into this kit but we were seriously bummed to note that there isn't a tiny fashionista included to wear our designer duds. How are we supposed to get our boutique du papier off the ground without customers?!

    In my opinion, cursing in general is pretty tasteless. It's not exactly a behavior to admire.  However, in regards to the question, I don't think people who are 13 and under should be cursing. Not to sound condescending to those who are younger than me, but my reasoning is, many people who are in that particular age group don't fully comprehend the weight expletives carry.  Here is an example: A mother is out running errands in heavy traffic. Her 6 year old son is seated in the back of the car.  As she's about to make a turn, another vehicle cuts her off. Irritated, she curses the offender under her breath, unaware that her son has heard her. Later, while in a check-out line at a supermarket, her son, growing restless, stomps his foot and yells the same curse. The six year old didn't understand what he was saying, he was repeating what he'd heard from his mother. He didn't understand that the word was inappropriate and potentially offensive.  The average 13 year old (or even a 10 year old, for that matter), however, would understand that it was inappropriate and that it was offensive.

I believe that it would be beneficial if we kinda cut down on the baby making. The more people on earth, that means that more resources are being used. In a way gays are doing you a favor. Odds are, early on, gays were most likely killed for being different. So it wasn't like they had to chance to evolve .   If gays/lesbians we made to have babies then gays would not even exist. Just because a century old book says that gays cant be married doesn't mean people are going to listen to it. Modify you bible to the now times. Rules change, so should your's. Interesting... And how do you suggest we do that? Prevent people from having children? Slowly dispatch of the current population? I'm sorry. Life is the most precious  gift. I don't believe we have the right take that away from another. *cough cough* Back to the main topic at hand... I agree that "there are plenty of people, gay and straight, that love each other." You're not wrong in that assumption. However, there are all kinds of love -though at the root core it comes with willing the good others. (We should "love one another as He has loved us.") But the attraction and desire to be with another as as man and wife can be one? That's called lust. As a Christian, I believe that such physicality should be reserved for marriage with the intention of bringing new life into the world.  Like any group seen as different, homosexuals have been persecuted (ex: WWII) -as they still are. But let's take a looksie back in the past, shall we? In some cultures such as the Roman? Homosexual relationships were actually encouraged. Specifically, male relationships -many, not all, between those of striking age differences. Now do you believe these were sought out for pleasure or out of love? Haha, actually? The Book's been around for well over a century now... Perhaps, maybe there just might be a sufficient reason as to why. Now, to change the rules? Sorry,  no can do. They aren't mine to alter,  though they're certainly mine to follow (;     Amen to that!
