Fun and Useful Products That Your Kids Will Love!
The spring is finally here and the kids are playing outside again. This means my kids are always thirsty and hungry (but when are they not?). Spring also means that there are some rainy days that can keep us stuck inside the house. I like to make sure that I can provide them with a snack and a drink easily while they play outside, something that is durable enough to keep up with their rough play. Also, fun toys to keep them entertained inside for those rainy days. I have put together a list of my favorite kids items to keep my kids happy this spring with products from Educational Insights, Precidio Design, and Learning Resources!
Drink in the Box
Drink in the Box is the world’s only reusable drink box. It is patented, BPA and Phthalate free, won’t squirt or leak, and helps to hydrate your kids without all the sugar and risk of mold, or impact to the environment of a disposable juice boxes.
I love how durable the Drink in the Box is. It’s a great way to infuse fresh fruit in my children’s drink and that it has an easy-open lid that prevents leaking or squirting. The most important part of Drink in the Box is that cleaning is so easy. There are no hidden parts near the straw, which prevents mold from forming. It fits easily into a lunch box, which saves me from buying juice boxes at the store.
Snack in the Box
Snack in the Box is the coolest snack container, featuring two separate chambers that each hold 6 ounces of your favorite dry snack. Using USA-made Tritan, the body lets you fill with 2 different types of snacks, and the Tritan pop-up lids let you easily pour out the snack from each chamber individually. Patent pending design, Snack in the Box is BPA and Phthalate free, keeps your snacks from being crushed or mushed, and works as quantity control so you don’t eat more than you planned.
I love that I can add two different snacks using the separate compartments. One can be used to a sweet and the other for a salty snack! It fits easily in a lunchbox, which means I get to pack the perfect snack for my kids each day.
Flower Garden Build and Spin
The youngest engineers can get their garden in gear! Hands-on construction and colorful garden pals provide a fun way to build fine motor skills. Big, chunky play pieces fit easily onto large gears, providing endless mix-and-match play. This friendly set encourages creativity and allows children to explore cause and effect. Includes board, 8 large gears, 7 garden-themed pieces, and a chunky handle.
My daughter loves twisting and turning the gears on this fun Flower Garden Build and Spin toy. She can take the gears off and put in back together the way she wants, making it turn and twist a different way each time. It really gets her imagination going!
Playfoam Classic 4-Pack
Finally! Preschoolers are free to express their creativity, with no mess to clean up afterward! Just squish up the Playfoam, shape it however you like, then squash it back down and start all over again! No-stick Playfoam is perfect for sculpting squishy, squashy creations anywhere and anytime! And Playfoam never dries out, so the creativity never ends! Encourages creativity and self-expression, provides tactile and sensory stimulation, and develops fine motor skills too! The Playfoam Classic 4-Pack includes 3-ounce pods in blue, green, purple, and orange.
My kids are obsessed with this Playfoam! They love making different things out of it and then being able to squash it up and start all over again. I am impressed with the fact that it never dries out. The playfoam encourages my children to be creative and they love to see what they can come up with next!
Introduce a loving world of nurturing-based imaginative play, an essential part of early childhood development, with Baby Doux from Educational Insights. The deluxe European craftsmanship delivers realistic baby details and just-like-me skin tones, helping kids make real-world connections and learn the importance of empathy. Plus, imaginative play encourages social skills, language development, and so much more. These beautiful 12” soft cloth dolls are machine washable so little ones can take their babies wherever they go.
My 2 year old daughter is a very nurturing little girl and she adores baby dolls. But this Baby Doux is something very special to her! It’s much more realistic than any other baby doll she’s had in the past. She loves to rock her to sleep because her eyes close when she is laid in a flat position. She loves bringing her Baby Doux everywhere she goes! The fact that it is machine washable is so important since she brings it all over with her, it can get dirty from time to time.
All of these items have made jumping into spring so much more fun for the whole family! If you have a preschool aged child, I know they would love any of these items. From super fun drink and snack boxes, to playfoam that never dries out, there is sure to be something that they will love! These would make excellent birthday presents for any young child!
