Paper Roller Coaster-Giveaway

My 10-year-old son just came home from school proudly carrying his very own paper roller coaster.
It's made from folded pieces of cardstock. Genius!  I declared it totally blog worthy and snapped a picture.  My son spent most of the afternoon adjusting it and sending down marbles.  If you know my son, it would surprise you to see him sitting and doing anything for longer than a few minutes.  I was so impressed, that I contacted the company to ask if I could blog about it. I told them I thought that paper roller coasters were so cool, that I wouldn't even charge them anything.   
The Super Coaster
They sent me some templates.  My husband and son saw this one on the website and they are now dreaming up their own super-coasters.

So if you are looking for something to occupy your housefull of kids all summer, then check out their website http://paperrollercoasters.com/index.htm. Their products start at $20 -which is a great deal compared to most building toys. Supporting my boy's LEGO habit is putting us in the poorhouse and we've never gotten to build anything 5 feet tall.


How would you like to win one for free? They are generously giving away an Individual Set, which includes detailed directions and enough pre-printed card stock to build a five-foot tall roller coaster.  It even comes with 5 marbles.

To enter, please check out http://paperrollercoasters.com/index.htm and leave me a comment about what you saw and who you know that would love to build a paper roller coaster (scout troops, home school groups, your family, etc). Easy Peasy. You don't have to "like" me or "follow me" or sign away your first born.  Just leave a comment.

Contest ends May 25th at midnight CST.  I will choose one comment using random.org and the winner will receive on Individual  Kit ($30 value). Shipping to US only. UPDATE: For any of you that live outside the US, you can win a set of Electronic Templates - A digital version of the directions with over eighty color photographs, and eleven templates suitable for printing onto card stock.  You will also receive downloadable directions.

Individual pack
I'll post the winner Thursday May 26th, along with pictures of whatever my boys came up with. 

Also, check out their facebook page for more pictures, tips, and videos. I'm sure they'd appreciated it if you "Liked" them.

  2. What a cool product. I love the idea that you could print out which pieces you want, and make more copies later.

    I can envision my kids working together to figure out how to set up a cool coaster. Would it be dreaming to add, "with out arguing"?

  3. Wow! I know my boys would love that...who am I kidding, my whole family would love it :)

    I loved looking at the gallery at all the different coasters, very creative! I know my kids would have so much fun imagining and building their own.

  31. Those are awesome! My 9 yr old daughter would go nuts over that - she is constantly creating some paper craft - she's done bridges, boxes, houses...

    Of course, my Webelos den (I'm Webelos den leader in our ward) would really enjoy that too...

    In fact, I'm pretty sure my physics-major hubby would easily spend an afternoon playing around with that (most likely with daughter 'helping')!

  35. I'm here to testify about what DR. OYAGU did for me. I have been suffering from (GENITAL HERPES VIRUS) disease for the past 2 years and had constant pain and inching, especially in my private part. During the first year, I had faith in God that i would be cured someday. This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of Shayla Bosschart on the internet testifying about a Man called DR. OYAGU on how he cured her from 7 years HSV 2. And she also gave the email address of this man, advise anybody to contact him for help on any kind of diseases that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HSV 2) he told me not to worry that I was going to be cured!! Well, I never doubted him I have faith he can cure me too,, DR. OYAGU prepared and sent me Healing Soap, roots and herbs which I took. In the first one week, I started experiencing changes all over me, after two weeks of using his Roots/ Herbs, Oil and Soap, I was totally cured. no more inching , pain on me anymore as DR. OYAGU assured me. After some time I went to my doctor to do another test behold the result came out negative. So friends my advise is if you have such disease or know anyone who suffers from it or any other disease like HPV, HBV, HIV, ALS, HBP, CANCER etc. you can contact DR. OYAGU for help via email} oyaguherbalhome@gmail.com visit his website https://oyaguspellcaster.wixsite.com/oyaguherbalhome whatsapp him through his mobile} +2348101755322. , Thanks once again DR. OYAGU for making me a happy woman again.

When I was unable to conceive I had blood tests for fertility and was told that I had an FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) of 54 and would not be able to have children.

My Synthroid dosage was lowered. a friend advise me to contact a spiritualist who help with fertility with his medicine, i collected his contact and explain my situation to him he prepared for me a herbal medicine which i took as describe by him. became pregnant very quickly, I had a successful pregnancy.
