Get Cooking With Pop Oh Ver

My kids love to play pretend! From princess adventures to playing school; the seem to have the most fun when they make use of their imaginations. Playing in the kitchen has always been a big hit with all of my kids. When they got to try out a few fun sets from Pop Oh Ver they declared them all to be a lot of fun for their little kitchen play sessions.

My youngest daughter is all about sandwiches, so she was more than happy to get her hands on the Pop Oh Ver plus play food set . It has all the fixings to make a soft and squishy sandwich. She has had so much fun offering her little brother sandwich after sandwich and a hotdog here and there too.

The Pots and Pans set and the Master Chef set have been intriguing to my oldest daughter, who loves to help mix things up in the kitchen. I love that the pots and pans set contains a nice assortment of kitchen necessities to keep the kids entertained, and playing with enough variety to mix things up and enough toys to go around with 4 kids! The Master Chef set is a cute addition to the kitchen. I love seeing my kids dressing up like a little chef!

On the Go with Britax B 3 G Stroller #BritaxMom

I am a mom of a toddler and I am also a daycare provider to a little one. Having two tiny movers and shakers tagging along with me on my errands and adventures was a challenge up until a few weeks ago. As I juggled a single stroller and a baby carrier, I realized we need a great double stroller or these day trips couldn’t continue.

We got to try out the Britax B 3 G stroller and it has been such a handy helper for this mom on the go. The stroller is stylish and versatile. It comes equipped with one comfy seat that has 12 seating positions for a growing child. I love the one hand fold option. It is so handy for a busy mom with multiple kids to manage. Putting the stroller away has never been easier. I know because I have years of experience.

Go Exploring with the Tiny Love Meadow Days Super Mat

With a toddler in the house, having a great play mat is a must. Little ones spend a lot of time on the floor, and exploring, so offering them a comfy and engaging place to play is important to most parents.

We have had a chance to try out the Tiny Love Meadow Days Super Mat. Let me tell you what I loved about this adorable and engaging option for my little learner.

At a first glance, you are going to notice how cute this Tiny Love Mat is. It is colorful, adorable and has so many friendly animals on it that little ones find it irresistible. But, there is so much more to this mat than a cute appearance.

The mat has so many ways to engage and play on a comfy surface. From a peek a boo tree to a stand up mirror for baby to explore his or her own face, to a crinkly fox tail for sensory play, this mat has it all, including a ring for attaching a favorite toy.

Lets Go Exploring

 

Summer is the perfect time to head out and play for the kids. I have a few really fun ideas for ways to encourage the kids to explore nature, to engage in dramatic play, and to keep their skin protected while soaking up the summer sun!

In order to go exploring you have to get their safely first. Mifold is small, compact, and you can take it anywhere! Instead of lifting the child up it brings the seat belt down. Making it safe and comfortable for them to ride. Imagine the places you can go exploring without having to have a big bulky booster seat around.

Sunblocz is my favorite option for very water resistant sun protection for the entire family. This is a 100% all natural option that has SPF 50+ and is safe for the entire family. It has no artificial fragrances and is full of antioxidants for a great choice in sun protection this summer.

Keeping Kids Entertained with Brio Toys

 

Summer is here and we are heading out to visit family, go camping and have a lot of fun making memories. This summer, I have a strong desire to make our memories hands on based, instead of technology based. I think that hands on play is vital to childhood development, no matter how old your kids get.

Toys

This year, we are taking Brio along for the adventures to keep the kids happy, engaged and learning.

One that the entire family likes to tinker with is the Brio Labyrinth. This is a classic toy that has been reimagined for a younger, on the go, audience. We love that it is two sided and completely sealed for a fun way to play and challenge young minds anytime, anywhere. Retailing at under $30 this is a fun toy for the car for your summer travels.

Summer Activities Made Easy

 

Summer is here and the kids are playing, swimming, hitting the ball field and completely enjoying the glory that is summer. This year, as they head out to play I am thinking of ways to keep them safe from the dangers of bug bites and fueled for the day.

summer

I was so glad to find that I could protect everyone, from the biggest to the smallest without introducing any harsh chemicals to the mix. Parakito is an essential oil blend that you can wear without irritating your skin or the earth, while keeping the pesky bugs at bay.

I was a little skeptical about how effective Parakito might be, as it seems like with or without a bug spray, I usually get bit, and two of my kids are equally appealing to bugs, but I had such great results with the fast, effective and long lasting gel roll on formula. Retailing at under $20, this is a must have for summer adventures with the kids.

Getting your kids to eat your vegetables has never been easier or sneakier than it is with these tasty organic shakes from Sneakz. The days of begging, pleading and fighting about vegetables are a thing of the past for my family.
