Lemonade Stand Start Up Kit Review!

image004

**I was sent a Lemonade Stand Start Up Kit for the purpose of this review. However, my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way. Lemonade Stand Start Up Kit   My daughter held her first Lemonade Stand two years ago at the age of 6. I was looking for something to keep her occupied during a hot summer day and since she had been learning about counting money I decided what a better way to use her new found skill. After sitting outside in the sun for about 4 hours my daughter sold $46 worth of lemonade at just $0.25 per glass. Both her and I were shocked that she could make so much in one afternoon. Ever since that day my daughter can't wait for the chance to make and sell Lemonade. She loves setting up her little table, making signs and screaming “Lemonade, Get your Lemonade”. It is cute to watch her as she serves her “customers”.   Recently I saw a kit on bizainy.com that will help my daughter take her Lemonade selling skills to the next level. … [Read more...]

I was provided with BENDASTIX kits for the purpose of this review. However, my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way.  BENDASTIX Kids Crafty Construction Kits This past week my daughter has been out of school for Fall Break. I love these breaks with my daughter because we often spend the whole week crafting together. Recently I was sent the perfect kits that I knew my daughter would love to do during her break. These kits are called BENDASTIX! I had never before heard of or seen BENDASTIX. I was intrigued to see what they were all about and if they really were everything the company said. Ok to be honest I did not know how they could create a product that would bend and form anything the kids wanted to make and then come apart easily allowing them hours and hours of building fun. The kits that arrived were BENDASTIX Botz and BENDASTIX Braceletz. My daughter tore into the BENDASTIX Braceletz first and immediately made a bracelet and then a headband. As I … [Read more...]

 **I was sent 5 Fantasy Coloring Posters for the purpose of this review. However, my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way. Fantasy Coloring Posters My daughter has a fascination with dragons. About a year ago I can remember that I was enjoying the sound of her playing outside. She was prancing around the backyard flapping her imaginary wings and pretending to breath fire. Since that day I have heard her play 'dragons' many, many times. In fact just two days ago she was flapping around the family room breathing fire to kill imaginary prey. She then cuddled up on the couch with me to "eat" her prey. My daughter lives in her own little world sometimes and I can honestly say that it is nice to join her in her world sometimes. Recently I was given the option to review some great Fantasy Coloring Posters. I was thrilled because I knew that these great coloring posters would include Dragons!! I could not wait for them to arrive. I knew that as soon as I opened the box and … [Read more...]

420-Easter-GoodiesTote

My Thoughts on Color Time Crafts Kids love to color. Usually I run around my house saying "only on the paper" and, "We only color on paper, remember?" This was one of the first times ever that I was able to say, "Color your shirt and have fun!" My daughter is currently about to finish up her first year in Girl Scouts. She is a Brownie this year and has enjoyed every minute of it! When I seen that Color Time Crafts had Girl Scout Tee's, tote bags and pillow cases I was blown away. This was the perfect item to get my crafty daughter! My daughter was able to review a Color Time Crafts Brownie T-shirt. It came with three permanet fabric markers that would add some life to her own creation. She literally colored on this shirt for hours. She strategically planned what color she was going to put where and what designs she was going to add to this fun shirt. I loved watching her creative juices flow and now she has a custom creation she can wear time and time again. Color Time … [Read more...]

Beam N Read Review and Giveaway – 10 Winners!!

002donme

My Thoughts on Beam N Read I am an avid reader. Each night I love cuddling up in bed with a good book. The only down fall is my hubby does not like it. It is hard for him to sleep when I have the table lamp on. This has been an ongoing battle since we were married. I have tried those lights that clip to books and such but to be honest they just become more of a hassle then they are worth. Recently I was sent a Beam N Read for the purpose of this review. I was so excited to try it out because it finally gave me something that would help me to read at night with out keeping my husband awake. The Beam N Read goes around your neck and as soon as you flip the light out it starts to shine. You have the option of turning on 3 lights or 6. The 3 light option works best when I am trying to read and is dim enough for my husband. There is also light covers that help to dim the light for him. I can use the light with the regular clear cover or I can put a red or orange cover over the light. It … [Read more...]

Poster Frame Deopt – Frame your puzzles and more!

frame_custom_size

As a child growing up there was always one thing that we could always count on when a holiday rolled around. Everyone in my immediate and extended family would spend the day at my Grandparents house and laying out on a table would always be a puzzle or two for us to build while we all enjoyed the day together. Puzzle building is something I still enjoy doing with my family even as I have grown older- but often times now we don't just build and tear them apart again.- we build, frame, and display. Puzzles can be a great way to find artwork that fits with your décor at a price that is too hard to pass up!
