Emergency Essentials is generously giving away a can of 16 Neapolitan Freeze-Dried Ice Cream Slices (on sale right now for $16.99) OR you could win a can of 16 Freeze-Dried Ice Cream Sandwiches ($21.95)! Can you imagine the smiles this would bring to your family around the campfire, or in a time of uncertainty? Just like the space ice cream that the astronauts eat!

Emergency Essentials has been helping people prepare for emergencies since 1987. They offer practical, reliable products that will help keep your family safe in uncertain times-Food Storage, First Aid Kits and components, Emergency Kits and supplies, and Camping Preparedness supplies. Though they sell a bulk of business online at www.beprepared.com, Emergency Essentials has three locations in Orem, Salt Lake and South Jordan. Scroll to the bottom of this post to enter the "Space Ice Cream" Giveaway.


Thanksgiving Point is hosting a Solar System Walk in the Gardens. Starting June 21st, this unique experience is designed to teach guests about the sizes of planets compared to the sun and each other, as well as the distance planets are from each other.
.

At the exhibition, you walk under a 25 feet diameter sun arch which is the scale used to make the rest of the planets. This scale shrinks Earth down to just 2.7 inches and the biggest planet, Jupiter, to 30.8 inches. You’ll walk from planet to planet in a scale of the actual distance between planets. One of the unique elements is that the Holdman Institute, which just won Best in State for Ceramics/Glass will be hand-blowing each planet at the Art Institute at Thanksgiving Point.

.

NASA BLAST also includes a light exhibit with 20 different exhibits on loan from the Exploratorium in San Francisco and a space garden demonstrating tiny tomato plants and other advances made to feed astronauts in space. The program also offers youth classes, day camps, star parties with Clark Planetarium, and additional family activities.

You can enter to win 2 Adult and 4 Kid passes to see the Thanksgiving Point Gardens "Solar System Walk". The Thanksgiving Point Gardens are already so impressive, but this learning opportunity provides an experience unlike any other! ENTER TO WIN a can of EMERGENCY ESSENTIALS

I am definately following your blog now Lisa! It is amazing! We are also interested in the Solar System Walk. My 10 year old has a birthday next week, and wants a party around "stars." She loves learning about our solar system! That would be a fun way to do it!

If there was a long term emergency where we would have to relocate, I would want the canned garden seeds from emergency essentials. In fact, I bought a can last month! We need to even be prepared to grow our own food! If I won the giveaway, I'd like the dried icecream bites. Yum! and fun for the kids!
