Hands On Toys Your Kids Will Love

Hands On Toys Your Kids Will Love

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Toys, toys and more toys, with four little ones under the age of seven I am always on the lookout for some great hands on toys that I know, will be a hit in our house.  All my children are very hands on learners and love items that will keep them busy. I’ve found a few awesome ideas that I’m sure your child will love too. I feel that alot of learning takes place when you can actually get your hands on it and do it yourselves. I know if that’s the case with me, it will be with my kids too. So hands on toys are so important in our home.

Hands on toys your kids will love!

My daughter is very inquisitive and loves to learn how things grow. She is always asking where plants for flowers come from and sometimes I don’t have the answer – because I’m just not sure! I’ve been wanting to show her some responsibility and grow her ever-expanding mind by us planting vegetables together, but I never knew where to start.

It’s that time of year again, as the summer days draw to an end, for getting ready to go back to school. My oldest is now in first grade, so just like most parents when the dreaded school supply list come in and the struggle of finding the perfect products start. It can be so overwhelming to find where to even start with the list.  Office Depot / OfficeMax has come to the rescue, to save the day!

Back to school with a blast! 

 

Office Depot / OfficeMax has so many new ways to make your back to school shopping easier, by starting with access to all your child’s back to school list. With over 1.2 million supply list from around the country, you have all your needs in one place. Click HERE for more information.

How awesome is that?

It’s crazy to think I’m the mom of a first grader, it seems like yesterday that she was just learning how to walk. I used to have so many people tell me when I was first pregnant that once you have children the time just flies by and man were they right.  I feel like I’ve just blinked and its seven years and four children later. I’ve been so truly blessed as a parent to have such wonderful children.  So when it was time to find some perfect supplies for my oldest I was excited for the big selection that Office Depot / OfficeMax offers. I wanted to find something that was as bubbly and sparkly was my daughter’s personality. I wasn’t disappointed, because I found some great options. From adorable Floating Glitter Binders to fun Fish Erasers they had the perfect assortment of everything she needed to make her year great. Great prices that don’t leave this momma breaking the break, so that always makes my life easier!

I’d personally like to thank all of the amazing teachers out there who put their heart and souls into turning these kids into the brilliant minds of tomorrow. Hope everyone has an outstanding school year.

So, yet another summer bites the dust as Open House dates loom, parents start gritting their teeth over the mountain of paperwork the first day of school brings them, and school buses hit the road, polluting up all of our summer fun with their hissing brakes, squealing doors, schizophrenic timeframes for arrival, and generally just causing traffic jams everywhere they roll.

If your kids haven’t had to endure this undignified return to early bedtimes, blaring alarm clocks, fights over what to wear to school, and skirmishing in the hallway amid shouts of “Bathroom hog!”, I envy you — a lot.

But, it’s inevitable that they surely soon will be heading off into another school year, so enjoy the unfettered summer freedom while you can, friends! Today, I’m hitting a little bit on must haves that my kids request for the start of school, but mostly (since we are huge snackers in my house) I’ll be talking about new after school and study time snacks that I’ve found for them from Simple Mills®, Junkless­®, and Betty Crocker™.

With the countdown in the double digits, the school year is about to officially begin. I have thoroughly enjoyed this summer with my little ones just as I am sure many of you have when it comes to your children. What I have not enjoyed this summer is housework. Yes, the dreaded task of cleaning up because my mind is telling me it’s useless when the mess will return within less than an hour.
