Easter is only a few more weeks away. What a fun season this can be for children full of egg hunts, treats, and the return of warmer weather. I remember getting Easter gifts as a child and have continued the tradition for my own children. Trinkets of toys are fun to receive but they don’t last quite a long. I tend to choose gifts like seeds for planting or things that they need or can pass on when they are through with them. We are on a mission to free clutter from our lives so I can be a bit picky about what enters our homes.
Swagbucks is running a great deal where you get 800 SB (equivalent of $8) when you get two free Puzzle Buzz books for your kids from Highlights! You pay $2.98 in shipping and handling, meaning that you walk away with a $5 gift card of your choice. This deal is running through the rest of March and is perfect for the little readers in your life. Even the youngest child learns to tackle activities independently — and puzzle-solving skills grow.
Here’s what you need to do:
1. Click here to get to the deal and create your Swagbucks account if you don’t have one. You’ll be my referral!
2. Click “Continue” and complete the offer. Your SB will be credited almost instantly!
3. If you’re signing up as my referral, you’ll get an additional 300 SB bonus for completing this offer, meaning that you’ll net $8:
Complete offer: $8
Shipping and Handling: -$2.98
Net bonus: $8.02
If you’re not familiar with Swagbucks, it’s a rewards site where you earn points called SB for discovering deals (like this one), online shopping, taking surveys, watching videos, and even searching the web. Then you can turn those points into gift cards from places like Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart, Target, PayPal, and more!
The Gold Women Nail Grooming Kit, Stainless Steel Nail Clipper Set makes me feel so fancy! I am adoring this set quite a bit. It’s chic, fashion forward and quite functional. Everything that I need to care for my nails is included! The tools are contained in a lovely gold faux leather case featuring a button to press to open.
* Sky Pony Press sent a copy of the following books for free for review and promotional purposes*
I was introduced to The Little Groovers series and am glad that I was! These books help teach babies, toddlers, and preschool-aged children learn must know concepts in a unique way. Each of these books features grooves that children can trace with their finger. How cool is that? There are books on colors, shapes, numbers, letters, first words, and more.
When God Made You written by Matthew Paul and illustrated by David Catrow is quite the book. This story encourages children to be proud of who God created them to be. Uniqueness is celebrated from the color of one’s skin the things that perk interests. Traits such as love, kindness, confidence, and bravery are pointed out as well as the fact we are created in God’s image.
Here’s another fun team challenge to help you earn SB from Swagbucks! For those of you who don’t know what Swagbucks is, it’s a website where you can earn cash back on everyday tasks you do online like shopping, answering surveys, discovering deals, and watching videos. You can even earn for searching the web!
