Our Favorite Gift Ideas for Busy Families from eat2explore
Kids will be excited to expand their palate beyond chicken nuggets and hot dogs. And try Mexican arroz con pollo and Greek chicken souvlaki thanks to eat2explore. These fun “explorer boxes” are from a dozen different countries. They provide tools for families to cook together, learn, and dine on different cuisines and cultures from around the world. The boxes can be purchased one box at a time, or through a monthly subscription. The great part is the boxes do not include perishable products, so you can use the included ingredients and cook when you have time.
They provide three easy-follow-recipes and a shopping list to purchase proteins and vegetables of your choice, as well as including hard-to-find spices and sauces. The recipes are also easy to adapt to your kids’ experimentations. If they eat vegetarian, gluten-free or prefer beef over shrimp, the recipes encourage kids to mix it up! Kids love to learn, and each eat2explore box comes complete with explore country brochure, activity sheet, country sticker, flag pin and a fun collectible to learn more about the culture of the food they are cooking.
This monthly adventure subscription plan offer your family the opportunity to try foods from around the world. Plans are for a single month, four months and 12 months. Prices range from $21 to $25 per box. Each box is packed with almost everything you need to prepare a dish. You will need to add a few things from the grocery store but the majority of the items will be things you have on hand.
How does it work?
- First you choose your adventure. Will you explore a country, a continent or the world?
- Then add a few fresh ingredients using the shopping list included in the box.
- Finally kick off your edible educational and enjoy family time around a new recipe from a new country.
Our box had three (3) different countries represented. My little ones had a blast decorating Croatian Medenjaci and Austrian Lizer cookies. We are planning on making out Japanese mochi over the school break when the family is all together.
While our cookies didn’t quite turn out like the pictures (and really do they ever when little ones are helping), we did have a lot of fun. And we learned about different cultures. The prep time was a great way to talk about how different foods and traditions are found around the world.

Our Favorite Gift Ideas for Busy Families from Pony Up Saddle
About Pony Up Daddy
The Pony Up Daddy Saddle is a unique, cute product for kids who love getting pony rides! The saddle is easy to put on and more importantly, it gives children a place to hold on so they don’t get bucked off.
I love that they sell knee pads for dads! How well thought out was the amount of time dad would spend on his knees to need knee pads! And if dad needs a little longer saddle strap to fit, they have a saddle extension belt too.
Our guys had a blast with the Pony Up Saddle! Even the older (but not always heavier children) also took turns riding until our daddy pony needed to be put in his stall for a while to rest. With our next family gathering coming up, our guys are trying to decide who will be the pony or if they should draw names. I am thankful my guys are all good sports and are all happy (to a point) to entertain the little ones.
