My oldest is in first grade so I didn’t really have a huge school supply list for her. I picked up some #2 pencils, highlighters, glue sticks and boxes of tissues. And even though she didn’t need a lot of actual school stuff, I did want to make sure we were covered in other back to school areas.
I’ve tried to make this summer memorable for my three oldest and I think I’ve succeeded. We’ve been able to go to the beach, enjoy pool days, visit the zoo and multiple playgrounds. It has not been easy. On most of those outings, my mom, sister or husband have been there to help. I’ve also had the help of some really awesome products.
This is my first time trying ONESIES® Brand and I love how soft the pants and bodysuit are. Mix and match separates are definitely the way to go when building a wardrobe. You’ll have more flexibility with outfit changes, and plenty of options if you happen to change your baby’s clothes more than once a day.
I’ve been searching for ways to make the transition from summer to school easier and have come across some great lunch hacks. I’ve tested them and they all work. Hooray for easier lunches!
Anytime POPSUGAR sends me a Must Have Box to try it feels like my birthday. But, it turns out this month is actually the 5th birthday of the POPSUGAR Must Have Box! Words like celebrate, gratitude, loyalty, smile and friendship describe this month’s full-size products. Check out some of my favs!
It looks like a game, but your kids will really be learning math. Osmo Numbers has been a great product to help my kids stay away from the Summer Slide. It’s been a fantastic tool because it’s showing my kids there are many ways to solve a math problem.
I probably do 90% of my shopping online. It wasn’t always that way, but with Amazon Prime’s two-day shipping and free shipping with Target if you hold a Red Card, it’s hard for me to not take advantage of it. With four kids, it’s no easy feat shopping in store.
This craft project came about after my family and I previewed a new children’s show on Amazon Kids called Niko and the Sword of Light. My daughter loved the headpiece one of the main characters, Princess Lyra wears, but I didn’t have anything similar in my craft box. So, we whipped up something else princess-y instead.
It’s actually possible that your kids eat more during the summer. No, really. I have experience. First it’s breakfast, then snack an hour later, lunch an hour after that, another snack after that and so on. Our kids burn energy so fast that they pretty much need to constantly eat to feel satisfied. To be honest, I would love to eat small bites of food throughout the day!
Fourth of July is over and summer is in full swing. Every day my kids have spent morning till past dinner time outside with the neighborhood kids. They’re running, laughing, riding bikes and using their imagination. It’s exactly the summer I would wish for them. Even though they’re getting plenty of play time in, I want their brains to be active, too.
I started reading The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo four days ago, and I’m now half way through. I find myself carrying it around to try and sneak in a few pages. Instead of watching TV at night I’ve been diving into this. It’s been a nice change!
