Say & Pray Devotions book is a great way to start your little ones day off on the right start. Each morning my little Nicoli has looked at his book. Every day he tells me something new, I find it really interesting to hear each of his little stories. Even though I have read to him a few times he changes the story and still has a good message behind it if you really listen. What a great way to introduce them to positive feelings and the bible.

Lil Live Pets Turtle Tank for Swimming

Little Live Pets Turtle will Make a Great Christmas Gift
These adorable creatures are hitting every child’s wish list this Christmas. Little Live Pet Turtles  (find the turtles here) seem to be all the rage this year for kids between the ages of 5 and 15 years. I know my nieces and nephews have bought a few Little Live Pet Turtles and frogs over this past year. Why are they a hit? There isn’t much telling, but you might start to think about it being the next best thing to the actual live turtles that you would but at the pet store. Let me tell you, I kind of wish that’s how we would started our first pet here in this house.

Our Live Pet Turtle
For now we have Squirtle (Yes, my oldest is a Pokemon fan), our actual live pet turtle that lives in a fish tank in our dining room. I got her for my oldest son when he graduated high school. It was the only thing he asked for and I thought it made a great graduation gift. Sadly, he won’t be able to take her with as he joins the Army. (at least not yet)  The kids love to go in and watch her swim around and she even likes to take food from my fingers. But for those little ones, you have to be careful.

Here’s a few reasons you might want to start off with the Little Live pet turtles:

1. They won’t get their fingers snapped when trying to feed a real, live turtle.
2. No salmonella poisoning to worry about.
3. If they get tired of being pet owners you won’t have to worry about selling it or continuing to raise it.
4.  The Little Live Pet Turtle walks and swims just like the real thing.

Sounds great right? So now you are probably wondering exactly why you would want to get your child one of these “crazed” toys that have made it to the Hot Christmas Gifts for this year. They are cute! On land the wobble around on their fins, in water they take off swimming like an actual turtle does.

Get Your Kids Cooking with Curious Chef

August 23, 2016 By · 18 Comments

Disclosure:  Curious Chef products were sent to us in exchange for an honest review. Pics and opinions are our own. By the way, Nicoli loves cooking with them.

I’m the mom to five kids which means sometimes I’m not always around to do up the cooking. I could be dropping off someone to a school activity, picking up from a sport or running out to get some groceries. It is always so much easier to instruct one of the older children to start or finish a meal so it can be just finishing when I get home. This is why I believe in teaching children young that they can cook for themselves even after they move away. Curious Chef allows young children to help out in the kitchen with their own utensils that are meant just for them. Don’t think just because it is a “child’s item” means they are fake plastic that will break. They actually look really nice and they can cook with them, with force even.

Fisher-Price’s CodeaPillar for Young Minds

July 6, 2016 By · No Comments

Disclosure: I was sent the Fisher-Price Codeapillar for review purposes, pictures and opinions are my own. 

Think & Learn with Code-a-pillar

What do you think of the toys of today’s kids? I find them amazing. The amount of knowledge and learning it does is something that leaves me in awe.  I was recently sent a Fisher-Price Code-a-pillar, or Caterpillar, or Codeapillar according to my son. This  is geared to help develop the minds of children ages 3-6 yrs old in problem solving, planning, sequencing and critical thinking. These tech toys provide a fun and educational experience. Codeapillar will influence how children will learn, build, and grow.  With these new Kids Tech products/gadgets and learning apps, keeping your kids engaged couldn’t be easier.

I was so excited to got selected to review the Code-a-pillar because I have little inventors in this house and everyone loves technology. Last school year I was told by Little A’s (age 8 at the time) teacher that he wasn’t very up-to-date on today’s technology.   The lack of him having a computer was hurting him in class. I knew right then things would change all the way down to his little sibling, Nicoli. BabyGirl turns 13 years old next month and is all about science (she went to Stem camp this past Fall)

It wasn’t shocking that she was excited to show her 3 yr old brother all about the code-a-pillar and how it works. Course it didn’t take him long to figure it out, he even figured out that when the code-a-pillar runs into something it says “uh oh.” He knew he needed to turn it around and push the button to start it again.

Codeapillar (The Life of a Home Mom)

I love that he is able to figure out he can control the direction this little bug does by simply changing direction piece and attaching it. For those that do not know the Code-a-pillar comes with the head (brain), 8 direction pieces a stop block and a go targets. There are 2 right, 2 left, 3 straight and the noise piece. Have your little guy/girl set up their code-a-pillar and ask them if they can figure out which way it will go and when.

He’s figured out it must light up the whole bug before it starts the directions. The pieces snap together just like a USB which makes it easy for little hands.  They are also light in weight so you don’t have to worry about them being too heavy for your child to pick up. They even have cards inside the box for them to follow the codes.

Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Pack and Little A says, “In Skylanders Superchargers starters Pack you are trying to defeat Kaos. The first chapter you meet your characters as you are leaving your home town because it was destroyed. You save three people and go to their academy to learn stuff and earn money. The little pieces are awesome. You can change out your characters/vehicles too which I hear you couldn’t always do. This is definitely on many kids’ Christmas lists this holiday season and not just kids but adults too and I can see why.

BalletGirl age 12, “The Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Pack  gives you this rush because you have to race on the 14th chapter you go up against this cloud guy that refuses to give you something you need so you have to fight him. You can easily change your characters when you want to do it. You can train your characters at the academy. There are three vehicles, land, sky and water. It’s awesome.” By the way this is a single player game unless you hook it up online.
