With three kids headed off to school this year, I was on a mission to find all of their lunchboxes in one spot so I didn’t have to add to the million and one places I already had to shop.  I came across Fit & Fresh and I absolutely fell in love with their lunchboxes, and what’s better is they had one for each kid, even though they’re all in different age ranges!

My middle son is headed off to middle school this year, and he wanted something that was meant for kids a little older while still being fun and functional.  My son picked out the Austin Kids’ Insulated Lunch Bag Set with Matching Lunch Pod & Alpine Water Bottle and I have to say, I’m loving his choice!  This awesome lunch bag features an easy grip handle and extra thick insulated walls….perfect for kids here in Arizona!  The bag can be zipped closed or with hook & loop closure so kids have a couple options of how they want to sport their lunch bag.  The bottom compartment of the lunch bag is perfectly sized to fit the included lunch pod, so you never have to worry about running out of food storage options!  The 16 oz. matching Alpine water bottle will help your kid stay hydrated throughout the day.   The included reusable ice pack can be frozen ahead of time and later snapped into the lid of the container to provide hours of cool insulation.

With my daughter, variety is key to keeping her happy so we also got this super cute Insulated Bento Box with some of the cutest owls ever!  This bento box is perfect for your little ones on the go.  The kit includes one main sandwich-sized compartment and two smaller compartments. The two smaller compartments each hold a small half-cup container pod.  The main lid holds two of those awesome little ice packs that I’ve fallen in love with to keep your meal fresh and cool for lunch time.  The Bento container comes enclosed in an insulated chiller bag that features stylish patterns and a convenient carry handle.

Last but not least, I was actually able to find something that my picky high schooler liked…ALERT THE MEDIA!!!  The Classic Lunch Bag with 16 oz. Alpine Water Bottle is perfect for hungry boys like my ever-growing son.  This set comes with a small lunch bag and matching 16 oz. water bottle.  The lunch bag features zipper closure, top carrying handle, and a side pocket to hold the water bottle.  The interior is lined with gray insulated walls to keep food or snacks fresh for hours.  The lunch bag measures 8″ wide x 8″ tall x 5″ deep so you can pack as little or as much as your child needs.

New PBS Distribution DVD’s Your Kids Will Love

PBSd_wordmark_2.png

 

If you have young kids, chances are they are HUGE PBS Kids fans like mine.  This summer there are a couple new releases from PBS Distribution that your little ones will love!

PBS.jpg

My daughter is a PBS Kids kid all the way.  She loves both Dinosaur Train and Arthur which is why I’m so excited about these new releases!  Now you can add Dinosaur Train: Dinosaurs Take Flight and Arthur: Brothers and Sisters to your little one’s DVD collection and my daughter was SO excited when she saw the new releases.

PBSDinosaurTrain.jpg

Do you like Buddy, Shiny, Tiny, Don…or even just the fun adventures that the Pteranodon family go on?  Then you’re going to LOVE Dinosaurs Take Flight!  Join the Pteranodon family on high-flying adventures! In four of the eight episodes on this DVD, viewers take to the sky with Buddy and his family as they ride in one of Dinosaur Train Industry’s newest creations – the Dinosaur Train Zeppelin.  As they soar above the clouds, the Pteranodon family visits a waterfall, explores a crater made by an asteroid, and more!  Approximate run time is 120 minutes of pure dinosaur adventure fun.

Episodes included on this disc:

  • Zeppelin: Waterfall” – The Pteranodon kids are riding the Dinosaur Train with friend and fellow pterosaur, Quincy Queztalcoatlus. When they pass by a waterfall, Buddy comments on how big it is!  Quincy’s dad mentions a giant waterfall at the edge of the Western Interior Sea. Mr. Conductor gives a lesson about waterfalls and then suggests a unique and amazing way to view the giant falls – from above! They can fly in the experimental Dinosaur Train Zeppelin…if Thurston Troodon will agree to take them all there on the zeppelin’s maiden voyage. Thurston does and our Pteranodon family gets to experience a spectacular zeppelin ride! The Queztalcoatluses fly alongside, impressing everyone with their flying abilities. After learning more about waterfalls, the Pteranodons catch lots of fish and dine before heading back to the Train via the one-of-a-kind Dinosaur Train Zeppelin!
  • Zeppelin: Atoll” – An atoll is a ring-shaped coral reef including a coral rim that encircles a lagoon partially or completely. Reef-building corals will thrive only in warm tropical and subtropical waters of oceans and seas, and therefore atolls are only found in the tropics and subtropics. When the Pteranodon family spots Annie and her T. rex herd migrating to follow the food, the Pteranodon kids wonder if other creatures, even marine mammals, also migrate. The Conductor flies the Pteranodon family over the ocean in the Dinosaur Train Zeppelin to look for Polycotylus, a type of marine reptile that does migrate in the ocean. After spotting a pod of migrating Polycotylus from the sky, the Zeppelin lands in an atoll and our family meets Paulette and Polly Polycotylus, a mother and daughter (from what is modern-day Australia). Our Pteranodon kids, and Mom, Dad and the Conductor learn all about Polycotylus migration and the reptile’s features. Then the whole group of new friends enjoys a fish-picnic on the reef of the atoll before the Pteranodon clan heads back home in the zeppelin.
  • Zeppelin: Pangaea” – When the Pteranodon kids decide to draw some maps, Don’s map of one big land mass for “the whole Mesozoic” triggers a discussion on whether the Mesozoic is “one big place that’s all connected” or comprised of a bunch of smaller, interconnected land masses. On the Dinosaur Train, the Conductor explains that millions of years ago there actually was just one big land mass called “Pangaea”!  Then, over a long period of time, it started to drift apart and form separate, smaller landmasses, or continents. Our family can’t believe it! The Conductor offers to take the Pteranodons up in the Zeppelin and through a Sky Time Tunnel, back to the time of Pangaea. At the Zeppelin Station, they meet up with Tricia Troodon, who helps pilot the Zeppelin on their journey. Once in the sky and through the time tunnel, our family is able to see Pangaea, the one giant landmass, just as it’s starting to break apart. Then the family travels forward in time and views the continents separating more as oceans and seas move in between the land. Looking down at how their coastline looks in the Cretaceous, Buddy, Tiny, Shiny and Don all agree that seeing Pangaea breaking apart is one of the coolest things ever!
  • Zeppelin: Crater” – As the Pteranodon kids are playing outside their nest, a few seedpods fall from a nearby tree, bonking Don on the head. This leads to a discussion about how far away things can fall from…maybe even from space?? Buddy hypothesizes that perhaps if a star came close enough, it could land on Earth! On the Dinosaur Train, the Conductor explains that things actually do fall from space.  Big space rocks, called “asteroids,” sometimes land on Earth, and when they occasionally do, they make a big hole, called a crater. Don perks up at this – he’d love to see a crater! So the Conductor takes the Pteranodon Family up in the Zeppelin to see a giant crater from above! On the ground, they explore the crater and find fragments of “space rocks” from the former asteroid. As evening falls and our family flies back home, the Conductor and Mom and Dad surprise the kids with a picnic dinner on the Zeppelin – hurrah!
  • Petey the Peteinosaurus” – Buddy and Tiny ride the Dinosaur Train to meet Petey Peteinosaurus, a “flying lizard,” who is fun, funny, and friendly, and has some features similar to both Buddy and Tiny!
  • Pterosaur Flying Club” – Tiny and Shiny practice their swoop-de-loops and other flying moves in anticipation of their play-date with fellow Pterosaurs Petey Peteinosaurus and Quincy Quetzalcoatlus. With Buddy helping with the choreography, the Pterosaur Flying Club puts on a flying show!
  • The Lost Bird” – Buddy and Tiny ride the Dinosaur Train for a playdate with their old friend Petey Peteinosaurus, and learn that the train has added a new Aviary Car, for their various flying passengers. Suddenly, they are joined by a lost bird named Judy Jehelornis, who was displaced by the recent forest fires, and can’t remember where her home is. Buddy, Tiny, and Petey act as detectives to figure out from clues where Judy’s home is, and the Conductor makes sure she’s brought safely home on the train.
  • Don’s Dragonfly” – When the Pteranodon family goes on an outing to the Big Pond, Don makes a new friend with red feet: a dragonfly named Howard.

 

PBSArthur.jpg

My daughter loves watching Arthur and especially loves D.W.  If you have a little Arthur fan, they’ll absolutely love adding Brothers and Sisters to their collection.  Join Arthur, his family and friends for eight stories of the hit PBS KIDS series about the joys – and challenges – of having a brother or sister. From D.W. copying her big brother’s every move, to the Tibble twins discovering that Tommy is two whole minutes older than Timmy, this DVD features loads of sibling fun.  Approximate run time is 108 minutes and your little one will enjoy every single 108 of them.

Episodes included on this disc:

  • D.W. the Copycat” – Yet another personality change for D.W., who’s decided that from now on, she’ll be just like Arthur. She’ll walk like him, talk like him, follow him wherever he goes. How can Arthur persuade D.W. that the world is only big enough for one Arthur?
  • Arthur’s Baby” – Arthur is not too sure he’s ready for a new baby in the house. What do babies do besides cry..crY ..cRY…CRY!  As the months fly by, Arthur imagines life with the new baby. Some of his fears seem to ring true: baby Kate doesn’t like him. Or does she?
  • D.W.’s Baby” – Living with a baby is no picnic. No one ever told D.W. that babies cried all the time, and threw up on your clothes, and got all the attention. Just how long will Baby Kate be hanging around, anyway? And who would even miss D.W. if she ran away to Button Island?
  • Arthur’s First Sleepover” – Have you ever been afraid of the dark?  Despite D.W.’s threat of aliens, Arthur sets his tent for his first sleepover. D.W.’s mad that she can’t be a part of the sleepover, but she’ll have some fun of her own – with the help of alien lights. But, who will have the last joke: Arthur and his friends, D.W., or the aliens?
  • Francine Redecorates” – Francine likes bats and lizards, while Catherine’s taste runs to lace. Normally, it’s fun to be different, but not if you’re two sisters sharing the same room. Space gets very tight at the Frensky’s, when this odd couple decides they’ve had enough togetherness.
  • Sue Ellen’s Little Sister” – Arthur and Francine would love to lend their sisters to Sue Ellen, who’s sick of being an only child. But Sue Ellen realizes you should be careful what you wish for, after her quest for the perfect sibling leads her to…D.W.
  • Two Minutes” – Power shifts in the Tibble household when the twins find out Tommy is two minutes older than Timmy. Frustrated in his new role, Timmy enlists the help of an expert older brother tamer: D.W.!
  • The Pageant Pickle” – School is almost out and Arthur can hardly wait for those lazy summer days by Muffy’s pool. Nothing could ruin such a happy time of year…except maybe – D.W.’s Spring Pageant!

Don’t let this summer pass without adding these new PBS Distribution DVD’s to your little one’s movie library!

Back To School Fashion For Less From Schoola

Schoola_logo.png

 

As a mother of three, I am always on the hunt for great deals when it comes to clothes.  As you all know I am a stay-at-home mom, so one income has to stretch quite a ways.  Schoola is the best way to save money on great Back To School clothes while supporting schools all over the United States.  You’ll get great prices on gently used clothes while benefiting young kids everywhere…what could be better than that?

SchoolaMain.jpg

My youngest will finally be heading off to school this year so with three kids to shop for I’m more budget conscious than ever.  The children here have uniform school shirts, so I thought I’d order them some new shorts/pants for the upcoming school year.  (Although I ordered all bottoms, most of the shirts pictured with the items are from previous Schoola purchases.  I have been a long-time Schoola shopper, and donater, which is why I was super excited to partner with Schoola this Back To School season.)

SchoolaBrayden.jpg

SchoolaBrayden2.jpg

Schoola carries clothes of all sizes, even men’s which is nice for kids that are still ‘kids’ but are large for their age like my boys.  My middle child is 12 years old but quite tall and wears a size 30 waist in men’s.  I was able to find a nice pair of Vintage Plaid shorts in a 30 waist that fit my son quite nicely.  These shorts were available at an incredible discounted price of $11.80, while full retail would be $38.00.

SchoolaKenny.jpg

SchoolaKenny2.jpg

My 12 year old may be monstrous, but my 14 year old is even bigger.  He’s almost 6 foot tall and no doubt needs larger clothes than most 14 year olds.  Schoola to the rescue!  I was able to find these awesome GALAXY By Harvic Shorts for only $12 when retail price is $34.  The fit is perfect and they look fabulous, perfect for the new school year!

The selection of items my sons liked wasn’t super huge, so I found a few items for my daughter as we’re building her first time school wardrobe.

SchoolaJadeBlack.jpg

SchoolaJadeBlack2.jpg

How cute are these Sonoma Life + Style pants?  My daughter absolutely loves the design on the pocket.  You wanna take a guess at the price?  $12!!  The retail price of these pants is $36 and we found them at a steal thanks to Schoola.

SchoolaJadeJeans.jpg

SchoolaJadeJeans2.jpg

Every girl needs a great pair of jeans and thanks to Schoola we were able to score these super comfy Sonoma Life + Style jeans at the incredible price of $12.  My daughter loves the fit of these jeans and she can’t wait to wear them to school and show all her “new friends” that she will be meeting in just a few short weeks.

SchoolaJadePink.jpg

SchoolaJadePink2.jpg

Pretty in pink as always 🙂 .  These Osh Kosh B’Gosh pants are just too stinkin’ cute!  The discounted price of $9 ($19 off retail) was too good to pass up and my daughter is super happy she picked out these cute pants.

Whether you’re shopping for a little one headed off to school for the first time or your oldest headed off to high school, Schoola has a great selection available at unbeatable prices.  Check out Schoola for all the great deals today.

The Best Back To School Snack Containers For Little Hands

Snackpals_page_banner.jpg

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.jpg

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.

SnackPals2.jpg

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.
