Fun in your own backyard!
Have you ever thought about how much there is to do and explore in your very own backyard? Backyard Safari Outfitters certainly has and has developed an entire line of products just for that purpose. We were generously sent the Cargo Vest, Mega View Periscope, and the Bug Vacuum to try out and my boys have been having a blast with them.
As New Jersey has some of the weirdest bugs I have ever seen, the bug vacuum has been put to a lot of use. You can suck up ...

Win Your Own!
It is July, but it is never too early to start thinking about getting organized and getting those back to school items assembled. Are you wanting an eco-friendly lunch box this year? I know our school is trying to really cut down on unneccesary waste and be green, so here is a possible way for you to contribute to that effort. We were sent an easy lunch box system to review and it is really great! Lots of room for a well balanced lunch and snack to send your kids ...
Mark Your Calendar!
When you think of a “festival”, you generally think of an event where adults or young people gather to hear music, dine, and perhaps shop. Ironically, it always seems as if the small Kids Tent, seemingly an after thought, is packed to the brim with excited children.
This summer’s Karavan of Kids Fun Fest will take the “typical” festival format and turn it upside down!
Sponsored by Newton Memorial Hospital and GBW Insurance in cooperation with Joe Hirsh Productions, the Karavan of Kids has scheduled dates for July 24 ...
Convenience In A Bottle
Summer time usually means being on the go, whether it be for family vacations, activities, or the pool. And it is hot out there! Of course, you need to have water with you for your little ones for bottles or sippy cups. Have you discovered Nourish yet? Nourish is a great idea created by moms like us. You will love how convenient these are to take with you, especially if you have a bottle to make--there is enough room at the top of the bottle to allow for formula to ...
Rejuvenate Your Skin
I have super sensitive skin, so I always have a hard time finding products that work well for me. I decided to check out Ole Henriksen products to see if theirs would work better for me. Oh, I am in love! I was sent some of the Ole Henriksen line for all skin types to try out. My favorites? Black Current complexion oil--this repairs and protects from any environmental damage. You put this on after washing your face and before any moisturizer. My skin is super soft from using this ...
Ahh.....laundry. I can never escape it. As you can imagine with four active boys in my house, I have to constantly do laundry or else it seriously piles up and I can never catch up. I am always on the look out for good deals when it comes to laundry detergent as I have to buy so much of it. It has to work well, too, because stains are not foreign to this household. When I heard about Robby by Oransi, I was very intrigued. Robby is a round ...
I have a train fanatic living in my house, as I am sure many of you have, too. He loves anything that moves, though. Trucks, cars, planes, you name it. His favorite part of going into New York is riding the train. So, you can imagine his excitement when I found www.ShirtsThatGo.com. This site is packed with t-shirts just for transportation fanatics. Trains, firetrucks, bulldozers--you can find everything here. The cool thing about these shirts is that it is not a cartoon picture, it is a realistic image ...
Water Safety Tips:
- SUPERVISION! Do not let children swim alone. If you have to go back into the house for something make them get out!
- Do not rely on tubes or rings for children who cannot swim. Invest in a well-fitting life jacket or have an adult in the water with them.
- If your ladder is removable take it down and put it out of reach when no one is swimming.
- Install a baby-gate or latch that small children cannot climb over or open. Install an alarm to alert you ...
