Flutter Friends

  Spring is in the air what could make it feel more like spring then Flutter Friends? These cute little guys respond to sound and touch.  She moves and chirps.  Honeysuckle has beautiful coloring that just makes me think of warm weather and spring flowers.

  Not only does Honeysuckle move and chirp but she has 40 different sounds.  She will also respond to other Flutter Friends and comes with this adorable flower feeder.  If you are looking for a very cute idea to put on top of your Easter basket you cannot go wrong with Flutter Friends.

  I love that I can get one for my son and one for each of my nephews and they can play with them together. Flutter Friends from Just Play are glittery with beautiful colors.  You can get these fantastic Easter gifts at Target.

Cupshe is an online store you are going to love.

These days when we see a fantastic Bralettes, swimwear or other items go by online we want to buy.  Most of us know not too.  Unless we can find someone, who has already bought then we are just scared.  So many times, we order and get it and nope its nothing like what we order.  I am here to tell you Cupshe has got you covered.  I am always excited to work with online clothes stores because I want to see if they live up to their pictures.

Now when it comes to delicate bralettes its even more scary is it going to be just a piece of cloth.  Swimwear what is it really going to look like. Cupshe sent me both and I can tell you I would order any day.  Not only are they very affordable the quality is fantastic.  Now your shipping is going to take a little while but hey good things in life are worth waiting for. I love that the bags they come in are re-seal I can use them while traveling.

As you can see if you compare my pictures to the one’s online, they match exactly.  I got exactly what they were advertising.  The stitching is fantastic.  Its not loose so no needs to worry about it falling apart.  I even washed them 3 times just to see how they would hold up.  Bralettes on gentle and air dry of course.  Swimwear I just tossed in the dryer on low.  I was very impressed they came out perfect.

Then yes, I wore them.  I would suggest going one size bigger then you think.  Or maybe I am just fooling myself about my size but I am going to with go one size bigger lol.

They have a great collection and their website is very easy to navigate.  I could easily look at everything and see what I liked.  Cupshe had very easy tabs to click threw and they even have a great coverup collection now.

MagStix by BizyBeez

My son loved anything that is interactive.  He loved to build and play and magnets are one of his favorites.  I was so excited to show him the MagStix by BizyBeez when they came.  They were out of the box in no time and he played with them for hours.  They really are a new concept on an old favorite.  There are so many possibilities that you can do with these great pieces.

  No matter your kids building level they are going to have a blast with these.  They even have a booklet with great ideas for your kids to follow.  This comes with 41 pieces and has an awesome bag you can put all the pieces in.  This is great for when they are just hanging out or even when traveling.  My son has been playing with this for days and still comes right home from school and asks for his set.

The MagStix by BizyBeez is a great set for ages 3+ my son is 8 and he loves them.  I even had a blast playing with them.  They have a really original design and my son loves that they even had wheels to add to his designs.

  Having a special needs boy means I am always looking for great sensory toys for him.  Something he can pick up and actually do something with.  Keeping his hands busy is a biggie in our house.  I love that these keep his hands and his mind busy.

As a huge plus for me MagStix proudly gives back 20% of the net profit from each purchase to a charity that supports special-needs children or humanitarian efforts around the globe.

Disney’s Kim Possible

 

Did you know we have a new Disney Channel’s Live-Action Kim Possible?  I don’t know what could be better.  I watched  Kim Possible a lot when i was younger now I am seeing it come to life on my T.V.    The start of this movie starts with a bang.  You jump right into it so pay attention.  Have the popcorn ready you are not going to want to be running around. 

Kim’s first day of High School does not go as planned.  She has planned everything for the next month.  From the second she heads to the bus something is against her.  I guess it is true nothing ever goes as planned. Now I have to say it might just be that I do not trust anyone , but when Athena showed up I did not trust her.  Was I right?  You will have to watch to find out.

 

I have to say I love that I know so many of the actors in this movie.  It made the movie so much more fun seeing actors I already love staring in a show I already love.  They are just how i pictures their real life characters would look like.

 

Based on the global hit animated series, the live-action “Kim Possible” Disney Channel Original Movie follows everyday teen hero Kim Possible and best friend and sidekick Ron Stoppable as they embark on their freshman year of high school, all while saving the world from evil villains. By their side every step of the way is teen tech-genius Wade and new friend Athena, who also happens to be a Kim Possible super fan and is eager to join Team Possible. While Kim and Ron have always been one step ahead of their opponents, navigating the social hierarchy of high school is more challenging than the action-hero ever imagined. With Drakken and Shego lurking in the wings, Kim must rely on her family and friends more than ever. Now it’s up to Team PossibleKim, Ron, tech-genius Wade, new friend Athena and Rufus, a naked mole-rat that Ron meets along the way—to stop these super villains.

 

Cast:                                     Sean Giambrone as Ron Stoppable, Ciara Wilson as Athena, Todd Stashwick as Drakken, Taylor Ortega as Shego, Alyson Hannigan as Dr. Ann Possible, Connie Ray as Nana Possible, Issac Ryan Brown as Wade Load,Erika Tham as Bonnie Rockwaller and Nancy Cartwright as Rufus.

How Young Kids Can Help In The Kitchen

this is a sponsored post

Picture credit

Every since my little ones started to become toddlers, they have always been curious as to what I’m doing when it’s time to get lunch, breakfast or dinner on the table. They love to watch me cook, adding various ingredients to make a meal as well as help grocery shop for items we need. At what age is it a good time to actually have them help you in the kitchen without them getting hurt you might ask? Well I have a few tips and tricks that our little ones always love to be apart of and it’s safe for them to do ( plus a lot of fun ).

 

1 Observing – If your little one is a little too young to actually help, the best thing we always did was keep them in their high chair and allow them to observe us cooking in the kitchen. I’d give them a wooden spoon and bowl to keep them entertained and also so they could mimic me stirring our ingredients together and they could do the same without creating such a big mess! Of course as they got older, stirring the ingredients is their favorite part. Be sure to have a lot of napkins, paper towels and wipes on hands for them to clean up with when they are finished!

 

2. Pour Dry Ingredients Into A Bowl- This was a favorite of my youngest to do. He’s a big pancake eater so his favorite thing would be to watch me measure the dry ingredients that were needed into a bowl and he’s squeal when it was his turn to pour it into our big mixing bowl. All the flour would create a mushroom haze in the kitchen which he also would giggle about!

 

3. Wash Ingredients- My children love being able to play in the water so if they were wanting to help prep some ingredients, they always asked to wash any of the fruit or vegetables that we needed. This is an easy thing for them to do, so I make sure the water is not too hot or cold and let them each take turns picking out the potatoes or apples that we needed and wash them under the cool water. Then they would switch and the other would wash and then dry their ingredient.

4. Crack An Egg– If your child is a bit tactile, this might not be for them but if they enjoy getting their hands a little slippery and slimy, this is perfect. Of course while they are learning to crack an egg there will be shells involved so make sure you have a spoon nearby so they learn how to grab the shell out of the bowl. Also make sure they are sitting down when they crack an egg too. I’ve learned this the hard way with a few broken eggs!

5. Help Wash Down The Counters– Cooking isn’t the only thing the kids can help with in the kitchen. Mine love to help clean up all the dirt and mess they’ve made and lucky for me, we installed these gorgeous Carrara Marble Countertops! They not only look gorgeous but were so easy to install thanks to Premier Surfaces who has various locations all around the United States. Their customer service is second to none and they help with any questions or concerns we have when it comes to installation and keeping our counters clean during all the mess we make. Carrara marble tends to have a muddy white base or grayish background with soft veining, while Calacatta has a more pure white background with dramatic darker grey veining.  It might be difficult to tell with the untrained eye but once you put them side by side you can definitely tell the difference. If you are looking for countertops that are not the main focal point for a room, we suggest Carrara marble countertops. If you want to make a statement, then you should consider Calacatta marble. Specifically, if you have a large island in your kitchen.

6. Using A Can Opener – There are so many new gadgets for kids to enjoy and one of them is helpful and not as dangerous to open up cans for soups or adding broth to a meal is using a can opener. We have one that is extremely safe to use because it opens the can up without you making you nervous they will slice their finger!

7. Slicing Vegetables/Fruits With A Plastic Knife– As the kids get older they can use a plastic knife to help prep fruits or vegetables that isn’t too sharp for them. My kids love to slice up peppers, help cut the tops off of strawberries or even start to learn how to peel in apple in one long strand! Make it a game for who can peal can be the longest!

 

Being in the kitchen doesn’t have to be stressful, especially if your kids are interested in wanting to help! Make it fun, make it encouraging and most of it all, make it memorable for your kids to enjoy cooking with you!

Spoil Them This Easter with Mr. Bubble

Mr Bubble

As we all know I am obsessed with everything Mr. Bubble.  Mr. Bubble has been a part of my life longer then I can remember.  Now I have passed that love of Mr. Bubble on to my little guy.  There is nothing like a nice bubble bath and now they have even more products then I would have ever thought possible.

Mr Bubble

With bath bombs of my sons favorite Sesame Street Charters it is not a race to the bath to see who gets to use them.  Of course, I’m not a mean mommy so this Big Bird Bath Bomb will go in his Easter Basket.  Not that I want to share but I will. lol

Mr Bubble

The Bath Crackles were new to me.  My son knew right away what they were.  Luckily, we got two so I can keep one for me and share one with him. The Magic Bath Crackles are too cute and the package is already decorated for Easter.  At only $1 for these how can you go wrong.  They are of course exactly what they sound like.  Poor them into the bath or hold them in your hand when they get wet, they will crackle and pop.  They make bath time so much fun.

Mr Bubble

Then of course there is the famous Mr. Bubble Bubbles.  These are what I know and love.  The little $1 ones are perfect to get a few and add to everyone’s basket this year.  I have always been amazed at the amount of the bubbles Mr. Bubble makes.  I have never found any other bath bubbles that compare.

We love the Mr. Bubble Easter collection and would recommend them to everyone.

Easy Easter Basket with Crayola

Crayola Easter

Making Easter baskets can be a lot of fun, but also a lot of work.  None of us want to give our kids a bunch of candy.  A little candy is of course always good, but I like to add toys that they are going to love and a few that will get them out in the warmer weather playing. Crayola has some great affordable gifts to add to your baskets that your kids are going to go nuts over.

Crayola Easter

Crayola has been a part of our family for as long as I can remember.  They always keep their products affordable and fun for the family.  I have loved all the new lines they have come out with since I was a kid.  Peppa Pig, and Paw Patrol are two of my sons favorite and these great sets can keep him happy and creative for a long time.

Crayola Easter

The silly putty little eggs we got silly scents, glow luit, superbrights, and an original.  You can pull snap, bounce throw and so much more with Silly Putty.  I remember as a kid this was one of my favorite things in my Easter basket.  I love that you can take them out of the packages and they are already in eggs.  So, go ahead and hide them or add them to your basket.

Crayola Easter

The Big Egg Silly Putty is also fantastic for the Easter basket already in the egg and so much putty to play with.  We got Green yellow and of course baby boys favorite color red.  He is going to be so excited.

Crayola Easter

Now that the warmer weather has come why not add a few fun Crayola side walk chalk.  I love adding something that will get him outside and creative.  Now for even better news its not the old side walk chalk even side walk chalk has gotten an upgrade for spring.  We got Tie Dye, Neon, and Glitter.   Each pack comes with 5 fun colors to play with.  Think of the beautiful art that your kids can do with these.

The whole Crayola line if perfect for the holidays you can out a fantastic basket together, they are going to love and not worry about spending tons of money.

These products are available at retailers nationwide as well as Crayola.com and Amazon
