The Best Back To School Snack Containers For Little Hands


This Back To School season I have been on the hunt for great ways to send snacks and lunches to school with my kids.  Finding things for my youngest child who’s entering kindergarten has been the hardest.  Most of the snack containers I’d been able to find were hard for her to open, and if she did get them open there’s a high chance most of the food inside the container was going on the floor.  I came across SnackPals and was really eager to try them out with my little one.


SnackPals are the newest innovation from the folks at Wow Gear, and I have to say we were super excited to try them out!  The colors make them super fun and appealing to kids and my daughter couldn’t wait to try them out.


SnackPals are really designed with little ones (and convenience) in mind.  These nifty little containers dispense one mouthful at a time.  Small snacks can be hard to pack in school lunches for little hands but the SnackPals are PERFECT!  Tip the snack cup upside down, give it two shakes, and open the lid.  A small serving of snacks are ready to eat and kids can’t get enough of the SnackPals magic.  The magic is in the interlocking hinges.  When the lid is closed, the flow gate swings freely allowing a few snacks to escape.  But when the lid is opened, the flow gate stays closed helping to ensure that snacks only go where they belong…how cool is that?  Let’s face it…little kids can be messy.  With SnackPals you’ll reduce waste and clean much fewer spill whether they’re on the floor or in the car.  The SnackPal containers are BPA and PVC free so you can feel good about the products you’re using with your children.  Throw in dishwasher safe and you’ve got a snack container that’s just too good to pass up.

There are a few different color options available so no matter what colors your little one loves, there’s bound to be a snack container for them.  Check out all the SnackPals colors and get prepared for this Back To School season.

Spark Imagination This Summer With Great Pretenders



Being a mother of three children in an ever evolving technology driven world, I have set out to find ways to keep my kids entertained this summer that DON’T involve electronics.  Too often these days kids are sitting in front of a tv, playing a video game,  using a tablet or playing on a phone.  Playing dress-up and using imagination is a great way to keep kids entertained and keep their imaginations engaged.  Whether your little one is into being a firefighter or police man, pirate, mermaid or princes…Great Pretenders has TONS of adorable costumes and accessories that will help bring their imagination to life.


My little girl absolutely loves dressing up as a princess.  She is your typical girly girl and anything pink, sparkly, or princess related becomes a favorite immediately.  I got this Parisian Pink Hoop Dress for my daughter to try out and just as I thought, it quickly became her new favorite thing and she’s hardly taken it off since.


Doesn’t she look just adorable?  As soon as she put the dress on, she had to wear the heels and tiara…of course!  This new princess dress from Great Pretenders has a crystal organza inset trimmed in silver, puff sleeves and a full hoop skirt for the complete look.  What little girl wouldn’t feel like a princess wearing this beautiful dress?  The tiara is also an adorable Great Pretenders item that my daughter has had and loved for a while now.  The Pink Ribbon Tiara is crafted with rigid wiring which allows for reshaping to fit any little Princess’ head.  This tiara features a ribbon-wrapped foam based, and is further decorated with gems and rosettes, finished off with ribbons which can be left to dangle, or tied into a bow.  Silver beads glimmer in the light adding that little extra bit of sparkle.

Spark a little imagination in your little one this summer with Great Pretenders.
