Easter Basket Ideas For The Kids – Gift Basket Round Up

I have partnered with the following brands for feature

Easter Basket Ideas For The Kids - Gift Basket Round Up

Roaming the aisles trying to find something fun and unique for Easter baskets is our favorite sport, right? Not really! I would be a lot more organized and save a lot of time if I knew exactly what I was looking for as I walk into the stores (it saves more time for the shopping I really like such as the kitchen and grocery section)! Here are some ideas that may help you out a bit!

teeth whitening

OK! So I wanted to start with something you can find while shopping for the kids! This is My Magic Mud® Activated Charcoal Tooth Powder for Whitening. But we all hear there are some side effects using activated charcoal? By American Dental Association standards, this brand is within range of being safe. My Magic Mud® states that they don’t know of any other activated charcoal brands that have performed the tests they have.

My Magic Mud® has been evaluated in a lab to ensure its safety, however the charcoal you’ll find in supplements and in bulk may or may not be safe depending on the particle size and quality. Because it only takes about 6-14 days to show results, you will have whiter teeth by Easter gatherings. I found it on Amazon for $11.97 shipped!

Drink Box

Now for the toddlers! The Drink in the Box and Snack in a Box are both reusable drink and snack boxes that are better for the environment than juice boxes and individual snack packs and they are both BPA/BPS and Phthalate free. It reduces the risk of mold and they don’t leak or spill. Also available on Amazon.

HABA Game

HABA always has the sweetest games that promote strategy and age-related skill development. Splish Splash Catapult is a game where rabbits have a water fight (not with real water) with their catapult. The skill is to aim well and hit rabbits with the water balloons (again, not real ones). Options to earn extra points too! And you can also shop Amazon for HABA games.

Movin Monkey set

Gears!Gears!Gears!® Movin’ Monkeys Building Set will be a hit! All the kids can stay busy while you get easter dinner ready inventing, building with STEM play in this 136 piece set with moving gears and more. Also available at Amazon!

PLay Foam

Playfoam is a hit! Educational Insights has fun options and this 4 pack of no-mess molding fun will occupy them for sure! Playfoam never dries out so creativity is ongoing! Find all options of Playfoam from Educational Insights on Amazon.

Play Tape

InRoad Toy’s Play Tape will turn any space into a car lovers dream! With straight line, long and short track tapes as well as ones for the curves, the hot wheels will get used on Easter! Find it in rolls and sheets and find road signs and more at their website or on Amazon!

Zip It case

ZipIt Animals Mini Pouches are made with one long zipper and are so fun to open and stuff! Clip it to a bag and stuff with keys, chapstick, change and more. These will be a hit hanging off the backpacks. This is the Bunny! I found the 3 pack of all animals on Amazon.

New Children’s Book – The Backup Bunny

New Children's Book - The Backup Bunny

The Backup Bunny

By: Abigail Rayner

Let me start by saying one word – Precious! Anthony is 10 and he still has his ‘Bear Bear’. All kids have their favorite stuffie or blankie so this story is relatable even to the oldest child who hears this story. We even laughed a bit in parts of this book.

When Max loses his favorite toy—Bunny—his clever mom brings out the “backup bunny”—Fluffy—to save the day. Fluffy is thrilled to have the chance to play with Max, but is soon rejected by the observant child who notices that his ears are too new and perky. Can Fluffy find a way into his favorite boy’s heart?

 

Find the Backup Bunny on Amazon and Simon & Schuster books.

Singing Machine’s Wise Ol’ Owl Blackboard Calculator – Video Review

I have partnered with The Singing Machine for this feature. Giveaway sponsored by Parenting Healthy

Singing Machine's Wise Ol' Owl Blackboard Calculator - Video Review

Math help! Do you need it? With homework to homeschool work we do our best to help our child, but many times we need that trusty old calculator just to make sure we guided them correctly. The Singing Machine’s Wise Ol’ Owl Blackboard Calculator makes learning and checking your work fun. It is an owl that speaks to you.

math help

When Anthony does his math homework I have one rule – no calculators. There will be a point in higher levels of math one day where the work is calculator driven, but for now I want him problem solving without the easy help. With his division and multiplication he needs to learn in the same way he will be tested. Because they cannot use a calculator on his tests in class he needs to know how to solve without one. His grades show me it is the right decision. However, he loves having a calculator handy to check his own work at after he solves the problems.

This calculator has many functions listed below:

  • Basic Multi-function: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division
  • Blackboard calculator sounds when buttons are pressed
  • Language function to learn math in three languages: English, French, and Spanish
  • Large LCD display for easy viewing
  • Colorful soft rubber keys make homework time fun
  • Auto shut off after about 4 minutes of inactivity
  • Battery operated

>>Anthony shows you more and offers his subscribers a giveaway!

Educational Insights’ First Collectible Product: Playfoam Pals Series 1

I have partnered with Educational Insights for this feature. Any thoughts are my own

Educational Insights’ First Collectible Product_ Playfoam Pals Series 1

Playfoam! We know it as a hot product for kids. It is mess-free, non-toxic and never dries out. You can buy it in small quantities or larger bucket styles. Collect the colors and create play spaces that open the imagination wide open and there is no mess to clean up. They can leave it out because it will be just as pliable when they come back to it. Educational Insights just stepped your Playfoam up a level by adding a surprise toy inside.

foam blind pals

Right now Series 1 Playfoam Pals is available and in this series the toy surprise are wild animals from around the world. Not only can they use the foam inside but with a blind box style, they can collect all 12 wild animals (their Playfoam Pal).

foam toy

They do not know which animal is inside until they open it up and tear open the pouch. As they collect the pals they can switch heads to make fun hybrid animals. Plus they get more Playfoam with each piece to add to their creation they are building. These are the types of learning toys you will find at Educational Insights.

Foam Pals

We were so excited to see the sloth! OK…I was excited because sloths are my favorite animal. The 12 wild animals are so adorable and on the insert are animal facts! One of our animal facts were: A lion’s roar is so loud it can be heard up to 5 miles away. 

educational insights

Anthony is having fun playing, creating and learning about his animals. And I still want to take his sloth and display it at my work desk! He is too cute and his name is Speedy according to the insert-lol. Get your kids started on this adorable series at Educational Insights!
