    Give The Gift Of Stem This Hoilday Season

    4M educational toys cover a wide range of subjects and include science kits, arts and crafts kits, robotics kits, and more. Each toy is creative, imaginative, inspiring-and most of all, fun! They encourage your child’s inquisitive nature while teaching them to explore the world around them.

    These type of kits have always been a hit with my kids. It is pretty cool to see them put these kits together and the look on their faces after they have made something themselves.  I advise you get more than one because after they complete the first kit they will want to build something else!

    Vegy Vida Dip Review: Designed With Kids In Mind

    This is a sponsored post. Opinions are 100% my own as always.

    I have mentioned before how my kids have always loved fruits and vegetables. When they were little I feed them lots of both. My youngest is 15 and my oldest is 23 and they still like to eat vegetables and fruit. Now that I have a granddaughter, I find myself trying to balance out the treats with healthy food, especially vegetables.

    Leilani is two and she has learned to say no when she doesn’t want certain things, especially food. Well actually she says “No Thank you” if she doesn’t want something or to do something you ask and I think it just so adorable!

    Leilani is really into dipping her food lately. She goes back and forth from eating the food or just licking the dip off. Of course I am a little concerned because ranch dressing and other dips have ingredients that include vegetable oil, sugar, xanthan gum and other things I can’t even pronounce. I am glad I was asked to check out Vegy Vida Dips. I did not not know there was a kid friendly, healthy option out there.

    Unique Stocking Stuffer Ideas

    This post contains affiliate links. 

    When it comes to the holidays are you looking for unique stocking stuffer ideas? Giving fun gift is one of the best things about the holidays, right after the smile on everyone’s faces. I was sent a few toys that I think would be perfect for gift giving for kids.

    Play Dirt Bug In A Jar

    I like this because you bring the dirt inside to play with. This is perfect during those colder months when your little ones can’t really dig because everything is frozen. The jar includes two bugs and “clean dirt” to play in. You do have to let it air out before you play with it because it has a smell. The dirt has a sand like texture that is easy to clean up. I like that I can have control of the mess.  When my granddaughter turns 3 next year I will grab one of these and a Bag O’ Dirt for her. I will put it in one of those plastic shoe box containers with a top.

    Magik Stix 24pk- Washable Markers Giveaway

    This post contains an affiliate link.

    If you have kids you know that art work comes with the territory. Kids love to create and I have four kids worth of pictures and crafts to prove it. These days it is my granddaughter’s art work that I am displaying. I just love all the little shapes and squiggles she draws.

    I try to keep a variety of art supplies around my house. Leilani loves to color, so Kwik Stix are a must have! She gets to paint with making a mess with water and paint. I was very happy to hear that the makers of Kwik Stix, Pencil Grip, now have Magik Stix Markers.
