My husband and I are pretty strict with our kids when it comes to video games and television, though we didn’t start out that way. We allot them a certain amount of time during the week, and monitor what they’re playing/watching. For games, they’re only allowed on computer-based educational sites, like PBS Kids, but I recently found a new one I thought I’d mention here.
Starfall focuses on math, reading, and phonics, and while there is a membership option, there is also a decent amount of free material for kids to peruse. There are some pretty catchy tunes and games teaching my girls how to sound out various words. It’s a great little site for the preschool/kindergarten age group!
Both my girls have longer hair, that sometimes gets brushed in a panicked frenzy when we’re trying to be on time for school in the morning.
I’ve been interested in detangling brushes for a while and recently bought this one to try out.
Well, let’s just say that when this went missing, and I tried to brush my oldest daughter’s hair with our normal tool, all I heard was how much she wanted another Wet Brush because it didn’t hurt her head. A good sign, I think!
It’s that time of year again when our Mister Elf comes for a month-long visit!
If you have kids and you haven’t invested in this fun leveraging item, you’re missing out! Kids fighting? Ooooo, the elf is watching you!
I actually look forward to his return each year because I have so much fun changing the position of the elf (ours is quite the ladies’ man, fyi)…
4. Soy-Free Bread
While I’m a big fan of making my own bread, sometimes it’s more convenient to buy a loaf.
Many brands, however, like to include ingredients that I’m allergic to, including soy lecithin. I swear, I haven’t been able to find a soy-free bread for the life of me, even the Ezekiel bread contains soybeans!
Recently, I stumbled across a new-to-me brand called Angelic Bakehouse, and wouldn’t you know it, their rye bread (one of my favorites!) is free of soy!
It’s also delicious! I found it here at a chain called Sprouts.
5. Red Clay
I love this mask because it leaves my skin soft, as opposed to drying it out. It works best if it is mixed with an acid, such as apple cider vinegar or lemon juice, and it can also be used in homemade tooth scrubs and/or deodorants.
A little weekend motivation…
