Jess Volinski’s coloring book Notebook Doodles Go Girl!: Coloring & Activity Book is an inspiring and empowering book for girls. It’s full of encouraging, inspiring, and positive phrases to color and activities that can help build self-confidence. It’s geared toward elementary and middle school grades but also a good choice not just for the young but for the young at heart.
I love cooking for my family and friends. Using high-quality ingredients are of the utmost importance whether it’s the freshest vegetables, meats, fruits, or specialty oil and sauces. Speaking of, I’ve happily been using Kasandrinos high quality organic extra virgin olive oil for a few months now and am pleased. This oil can be used in everything from homemade salad dressing, the base to fry up vegetables, to give my pasta meals an extra special pick me up, and so much more.
We love Label Daddy labels as they help prevent things from getting lost. If they do if labeled with a name, address, phone number, or email they usually get returned to us right away. Items often lost include jackets, shoes, cups, water bottles, snack bowls, school supplies and anything else a child may leave home with.
We live in Oregon that is well known for the amount of rain we get on a yearly basis. April showers bring showers but so does most of the Winter, Fall and Spring season. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have our rainy days during the Summer either. The rain doesn’t ruin our days or keep us inside! I deck my children out in the best and cutest rain gear around from Kidorable and we make the most of it!
The recent release of The Octonauts: 12 Rescue Missions DVD I can get behind with excitement! The Octonauts series has a huge educational value. They teach children all about marine life, endangered species, environmental issues, working together, caring for the world around us, and so much more. The age this would have the most impact on I feel would be children ages 3-8 years old. Being a fan of the series for many years now, I’m pleased it’s still going strong and making more and more exciting action-packed, interesting, and educational filled episodes.
