GrazeLogo.jpg

 

If you guys haven’t heard of Graze yet, it’s a really great snack subscription box that allows you to customize your selection of treats so you get something that’s just right for you.  With over a hundred different snack options, it’s hard not to find a great variety that you can’t wait to try out.  If you follow certain diets or have any food aversions, Graze helps you customize your box to your snacking needs.

Graze.jpg

I received a variety of the snacks I ranked highest on my “must try” list and I am incredibly surprised at just how delicious each snack was.  I went camping on the lake with my children and husband so these little snack packs came in very handy!  It was a great way to stay nourished without compromising my way of eating that was also super convenient.

PeanutButterDipper.jpg

Whether you’re craving sweet or savory, this snack is sure to satisfy.  Graze’s specially designed dipper punnet means that you can enjoy dunking dippers into peanut butter even when you’re on the go.  Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, try drizzling your peanut butter over frozen yogurt and sprinkling crushed dippers on top!  These Protein Peanut Butter Dippers With Pretzel Sticks are a must!

EverythingBagel.jpg

If you’re like me you love a great everything bagel but don’t love all the calories that come along with it.  In this New York Everything Bagel snack pack, you’ll find a perfect blend of flavors at only 150 calories so you can feel good about the snack you’re indulging in.

StrawberriesAndCream.jpg

This Strawberries and Cream Protein Granola Topper was one of my favorite snacks included in my box.  It all started with creamy yogurt, tasty yet plain, waiting for the right topper to come along.  After some experimenting in the kitchen, Graze came up with a quick, easy way to make yogurt so much more exciting.  A new, tasty way to get a little extra protein into your diet.

sesameCrunchGarlic.jpg

Sesame Garlic Crunch was another one of my favorites, it is so tasty!  These sesame sticks are infused with garlic to create one of my favorite flavor combinations.  Graze’s taste experts then added soy-infused crackers made with oat bran for a tasty source of dietary fiber…what more could you ask for?

SaltedFudgePeanutCookie.jpg

Oh. Em. Gee.  This Salted Fudge And Peanut Cookie is delicious!  Salted caramel is one of the most famous flavor combinations and the sweet and salty taste has stood the test of time (so far)!  Graze deconstructed the salted fudge & peanut cookie to make a tasty Graze style snack.  The buttery flavor comes from creamy vanilla fudge sprinkled in with protein-boosting peanuts for an addicting salty twist.  And possibly the best part are the mini cocoa cookies!

PoppingCorn.jpg

The Lightly Salted Popping Corn is a perfect treat to settle down with.  Sometimes there’s nothing better than a bag of popcorn fresh out of the oven.  Graze’s popping corn has small pinch of salt and is a great source of fiber. At only 130 calories, it’s the perfect light snack whether you’re at your desk or in front of the TV.

GardenOfEngland.jpg

Garden Of England shows just how creative Graze can be.  They wanted to capture the feeling of summer in a snack and I think they did a delightful job.  This sweet, juicy mix is a huge summertime favorite and after just one bite you’ll see why.  The bright, juicy, fruity flavors pack a punch of taste your tongue will love.

SummerBerryFlapjack.jpg

Last, but not least, I also received Summer Berry Flapjack in my box and I’m so glad this one was included!  Flapjacks are a tasty treat that the Graze experts put a delicious berry twist on.  You’ve never tasted a snack like this before!  The Graze flapjacks are made by the White family from their own 30 year-old recipe.  These tasty treats are hand baked in small batches to prevent the rustic rolled oats from damaging, which is why Graze flapjacks are such a great source of fiber and taste truly homemade.

This summer is the perfect time to try Graze snacks!  See how good it feels to snack healthy and indulge without ruining that summer body you’ve worked so hard for!

Learning Box Preschool Week 14 #Review

LearningBoxPreschool

Week 14 with Learning Box Preschool was fun as always!  Jade and I had a blast discovering new things and making fun yet educational crafts.

Monday:

MondayCollage1.jpg

Monday was Halloween and we had so much fun with Halloween themed activities.  Jade absolutely loved having her foot painted and using the print to make a spooky ghost.

MondayCollage2.jpg

Jade did a great job following instructions and listening to clues to put the right people in the right spots.  What a smart little girl!

MondayCollage3.jpg

Being safe on Halloween is rule #1!  Jade and I practiced trick-or-treating to get ready for the evening so we could have a fun, safe time.

Tuesday:

TuesdayCollage1.jpg

Tuesday was a fun day of introducing our new posters to go along with our new theme for November.  We added a new number, 4, and Jade did a great job putting the numbers in their correct spots.

TuesdayCollage2.jpg

Every month we make a new name tag to go along with our theme.  Jade really used her imagination when coloring her turkey!

Wednesday:

WednesdayCollage1.jpg

Learning new letters is always fun, especially when it’s ‘L’ for ‘ladybug’!

WednesdayCollage2.jpg

Jade got to practice writing her name all by herself and as you can tell from the picture, she was SO happy when she was able to do it better than ever.  She drew a fabulous picture of herself to go along with her name 🙂 .

WednesdayCollage3.jpg

We’re learning all about the 5 senses, and after learning a bit about sight, Jade decorated some glasses and glued them onto her little print-out character.

Thursday:

We had a really great opportunity to be visitors at Jade’s older brother’s school on Friday, so we combined Thursday and Friday into one day so we didn’t fall behind 🙂

ThursdayCollage1.jpg

The letter ‘a’ can also be a word, and Jade is doing a great job learning all about the letter ‘a’ as a word.

ThursdayCollage2.jpg

Using your sight is fun, but it’s even MORE fun when you get to decorate and make your own telescope.

ThursdayCollage3.jpg

Making a rainbow square was one of Jade’s favorite things this week.  She loves rainbows!

ThursdayCollage4.jpg

A sense of hearing is also so important!  Jade had fun shaking containers and using just her hearing to try and figure out what was inside.

Learning Box Preschool Week 13 #Review

LearningBoxPreschool

As Halloween drew nearer Jade was more and more excited by the day.  She was anticipating the fun day and really enjoying the Learning Box Preschool lessons that went along with the Halloween theme.

Monday:

MondayCollage1.jpg

Practicing the letter ‘P’ and she’s so good at it!  She loves how ‘pumpkin’ starts with ‘p’.

MondayCollage2.jpg

We’re still continuing with our AAB pattern and Jade did a great job making this pattern with pumpkins and pointing out the AAB patter on the wall.

MondayCollage3.jpg

Matching emotions was no match for this little smarty pants!  She was able to make all the matches without needing any assistance, what a smart girl!

MondayCollage4.jpg

The jack-o-lantern phase of the pumpkin life cycle is probably the most fun of all!  Jade had fun drawing a jack-o-lantern and putting it in her pumpkin life cycle book.

Tuesday:

TuesdayCollage1.jpg

Jade has done a fabulous job remembering all of our sight words.  With the addition of one of her own words, she can read a whole sentence!!

TuesdayCollage2.jpg

After jack-o-lantern there are plenty of seeds to plant to start the pumpkin life cycle all over again.

TuesdayCollage3.jpg

We’ve had so much fun making various types of pumpkins and Tuesday was no exception.  Stuffing a paper bag with old newspaper was easy and with a little paint and one piece of ribbon you’ve got one creative pumpkin.

Wednesday:

WednesdayCollage1.jpg

Jade did a fabulous job sorting all of the cards into the right column.  She’s an expert on the number 3!

WednesdayCollage2.jpg

In Jade’s Pumpkin Book, she was SUPER excited to see a page where she gets to draw her own pumpkin.  She couldn’t wait to create a fun and unique pumpkin.

WednesdayCollage3.jpg

This little pumpkin pro did a great job putting together the life cycle of the pumpkin.  We even went outside and planted a few seeds.  (I know they probably won’t grow, it’s the wrong time of year to plant them, but she had fun and I wouldn’t have it any other way.)

Thursday:

ThursdayCollage1.jpg

Thursday was a day that Jade really enjoyed!  She got to change up a rectangle and see how many different things a simple shape can become.

ThursdayCollage2.jpg

PUMPKIN MAN!!!  What a fun activity this was!  Jade is still carrying around her new buddy pumpkin man and having Halloween adventures with him.

Friday:

Friday we took a day off and participated in some local Halloween activities.  That’s one of the beautiful benefits of Learning Box Preschool…you can contour your plan to YOUR life, and let your child really get the fullest experience they possibly can.

Learning Box Preschool Week 12 #Review

With Halloween drawing near, Jade and I are loving the theme this week!  Lots of learning about pumpkins, their life cycle, and the various types of pumpkins.  The Learning Box Preschool is so much fun!

Monday:

mondaycollage1

Monday we continued with learning the letter ‘o’.  Jade loves the tracing worksheets, she is so good at them!

MondayCollage2.jpg

On Monday we also got to play a fun game where Jade pulls a number and adds the correct amount of pumpkins to the vines.  Such a smart little girl, she’s got her numbers 1-10 down!

MondayCollage3.jpg

We learned that there are pink pumpkins!  When decorating the cover for her pumpkin life cycle, Jade had to color hers pink of course!

Tuesday:

TuesdayCollage1.jpg

On Tuesday we started a new letter, letter ‘p’.  Lots of fun words start with the letter ‘p’, but Jade’s favorite is pumpkin!

TuesdayCollage2.jpg

Jade got to learn about the cycle of the pumpkin, and on Tuesday we learned about the seed stage, and sprout stage.

Wednesday:

WednesdayCollage1.jpg

Wednesday had a fun little book all about our sight word, I.  Jade had a blast tracing the letters and coloring the book before we put it together.

WednesdayCollage2.jpg

Jade had a fun time putting together a craft about 5 little pumpkins sitting on a fence 🙂 .

WednesdayCollage3.jpg

After a pumpkin sprout, comes the plant!  Jade loved painting the plant leaf with watercolor paints.

Thursday:

ThursdayCollage1.jpg

We’re still learning about AAB pattern and Jade did a great job putting together an AAB pattern with different sized pumpkins.

ThursdayCollage2.jpg

What a fun way to keep with our theme and do a pumpkin puzzle 🙂 .

ThursdayCollage3.jpg

Pumpkin flowers are so pretty!  Jade did a great job gluing on pieces of tissue to make the beautiful flower.

Friday:

FridayCollage1.jpg

Rectangles are one of the shapes that we’re learning about this month and Jade did wonderful at matching all the right size rectangles to their spot.

FridayCollage2.jpg

The number 3 can be tricky, but nothing is too hard for this smart little girl.

FridayCollage3.jpg

After the pumpkin flower comes a little pumpkin…how lovely!  Jade is really enjoying learning the life cycle of a pumpkin.  We decided that next March we will plant our own pumpkin crop and watch the life cycle unfold.

Learning Box Preschool Week 11 #Review

LearningBoxPreschool

Jade and I had so much fun this past week with our Learning Box Preschool curriculum.  Jade is getting smarter and smarter every day and it’s so wonderful to watch her learn and grow.

Monday:

MondayCollage.jpg

Monday was Columbus day and we had so much fun learning all about Columbus.  Jade got to make a fun craft of the three ships Columbus used on his voyage to find America.

Tuesday:

TuesdayCollage1.jpg

The letter ‘O’ can be lots of fun when you get to craft with oats!  Jade did a great job pasting the letter on, painting with glue, and spreading out her oats to look like a big bowl of oatmeal.

TuesdayCollage2.jpg

We’re continuing to learn about community helpers, and Jade had a blast drawing herself driving the beautiful fire truck she made.

TuesdayCollage3.jpg

Firefighters ladders are very important for rescuing people in need.  Jade had fun making an edible ladder snack 🙂 .

Wednesday:

WednesdayCollage1.jpg

The colors that we’re learning about this month are black and orange.  Jade got to color a fun little black and orange themed book.

WednesdayCollage2.jpg

Being a construction worker can be lots of fun!  Building a popsicle stick house was a craft that Jade really enjoyed.

WednesdayCollage3.jpg

Construction workers have to be careful!  Hard hats are a must on the job site.  Jade had a blast decorating her construction worker hat.

WednesdayCollage4.jpg

Building houses is the best way to pretend to be a construction worker.  If you make them with candy and frosting, that’s even better!  Jade did great decorating her little village.

Thursday:

ThursdayCollage1.jpg

On Thursday we continued to learn about our sight word, see.  Jade has gotten really good at recognizing ‘see’!

ThursdayCollage2.jpg

Mail carriers have an important job!  They deliver the letters that we write to the ones we love.  Jade had me write out a letter to her friends Maddy and Mackenzy and she loved putting it in an envelope and out in the mailbox.

ThursdayCollage3.jpg

Mail trucks are important for our mail carriers.  They help the mail carriers deliver their mail on time so everyone can get the letters that are on their way.

Friday:

FridayCollage1.jpg

Keeping with our sight word, see, Jade got to make a fun book using the word ‘see’ and our community helpers theme.

FridayCollage2.jpg

Learning the difference between rectangles and cylinders can be kinda tough, but Jade did a great job putting each item in the correct category.

FridayCollage3.jpg

Crossing guards make sure we all stay safe when we cross the street.  Jade had a lot of fun making a stop sign so she can pretend to be a crossing guard too.

Next week should be tons of fun, I hope you all stick around to see what fun new things we get to do.
