Little Tikes 2-in-1 Garden Cart & Wheelbarrow (Giveaway) ends 4/12

Spring is upon us (whether or not the temperatures are in agreement is another post!!) and we’ve been outside, outside, OUTSIDE!! a ton.  The kids are happier, I’m feeling happier- there’s just something so refreshing about being outside after a long cold New England winter that just puts a smile on my face.  (The fact that the kids sleep better is an added bonus…)

I realized not long ago that the toys we have for outside are for little kids, and preschoolers, and that we don’t have much for toddlers.  This isn’t such a good thing since I have a toddler, and she loves to go outside.  Thankfully, Little Tikes emailed last week and asked if we wanted to try a new spring toy, and this cute 2-in-1 Garden Cart & Wheelbarrow  was the option we chose:

Pillow Pets Dreamland™ games (Giveaway)ends 4/11

The folks at My Pillow Pet have come out with some cute games that are very similar to some familiar classics, but with the Pillow Pet theme.  The two games are Pillow Pets Dreamland Adventure Game and Pillow Pets Dreamland Matching Game.  You can find both with all of your favorite Pillow Pet friends right at http://www.lovemypillowpets.com/

My kids love matching games, and both of these games place emphasis on matching. 

In My Pillow Pets Dreamland Matching Game, kids 3+ can match 30 pets with their pillows- the kid (or grownup!) with the most matches at the end, wins.  Don’t be surprised when your child is asking for a few more pillow pet friends after playing this game or the other new one- its all Pillow Pets and hard to resist the fluffy cuteness!  It’s a cute memory game, andwith the bright, cheery Pillow Pet friends, lots of fun for little ones.

Turning a child’s art projects into a memory book #GluenGlitter #LovinLogistics

My kids could wallpaper our house, our neighbors, and probably many of yours with their art creations.  We spend a lot of time coloring, markering, using colored pencils, tracing, stenciling, sketching…we love to color, I guess!  With all of the time we spend creating things…we don’t always have the space to display projects, nor do we have the room to store them.  I had the chance to get some photos of the kids’ artwork and turn them into a memory book  at The UPS Store this week, and while we had some bumps in the road in getting our book, now that I know for sure which stores can help me to do this best, I will most definitely be making some more books, with more pages in them and a more specific layout in mind ahead of time. 

The idea of this project was to take images on a flash drive or a memory card to my local The UPS Store, but this is where we ran into issues.  We headed out first thing in the morning for an appointment, and my thinking was: stop at the store quickly, get my memory card read, get the project in motion, and pick it up after the appointment.  That would leave time after school for each of the kids to decorate, embellish, color, and put their personal touch on their brag books, with time to dry, so I could share photos of the process with you all….but once I got to the counter and asked where to begin my plans came to a screeching halt.
