Oaklyn's Spring Favorites

Saturday, April 28, 2018
Thank you to BabbleBoxx for sponsoring this post! All opinions stated are mine alone. 

Does anyone else have a hard time entertaining their toddler all day?? I know it can't just be me haha. These little kiddos are learning and developing so much daily that they are constantly wanting something new and exciting to do. Oaklyn is always getting herself into mischief just because she is bored. I feel like I'm always finding her doing something messy or just strange! haha. Her brain needs to be challenged daily because at this age, she loves to learn new things. We recently put her in gymnastics so she has something fun to look forward to and all the new skills she is learning gives her something to practice throughout the week, therefore filling up some of her time! I'm also really hoping we can get her into preschool soon! In the meantime though, she's home with me all day and I am constantly looking for ways to keep her entertained and having fun! We recently teamed up with BabbleBoxx to receive their Just 4 Kids box and we were so excited to see the contents! Oaklyn was oohing and ahhing over everything she got and I was so happy when it gave her something to do as I was trying to get things done! Everything in this box is perfect for toddlers and young kids and would even make great birthday presents! I feel like we go to lots of birthday parties in the spring and summer and we're always trying to think of fun gift ideas. All of this fun stuff would be perfect! So what exactly is in this box?? Let me tell you!

The Snazaroo Brush Pen
Does your kid like to have their face painted? Oaklyn loves it! It makes her feel special and she thinks it is so fun to decide what to paint on her face. She about wet her pants from excitement when I told her I was going to paint her face and it wasn't even a special occasion, ha! The Snazaroo Brush pen is a clever two-in-one product that features a brush applicator and high-quality liquid face paint! It is available in 12 different colors, is fragrance and paraben free, and is suitable for sensitive skin! It can be purchased on Snazaroo.com and amazon! It's so fun that Oaks can quickly transform into what she wants to be for the day and that it easily washes off for nap time! The other day she wanted a butterfly on one cheek and a heart on the other and was giddy all day once she saw her creations come to life!

Jane M. Rose-Vallee Books - Dinosaurs Living in My Hair & Dinosaurs Living in My Hair 2
Oaklyn has the most adorable and fun imagination. I have absolutely loved seeing it come out more and more as she gets older. Her imagination runs wild constantly and I always want to encourage her to dream big and embrace her creative nature. I have always been a creative person that loves to bring my imagination to life. I can see a lot of that in Oaklyn too. This series of whimsical award-winning children's books encourages children to color outside the lines and embrace their creative, imaginative spirit. Oaklyn loves looking at the beautiful illustrations in these books and telling me all she sees on each page. These books, told in rhyme, are charming and adorable. We love children's books about inclusion while also captivating her attention. You can find out more about the book here and use code FREESHIP for free shipping! 

PEZ Jurassic World Collection
After reading the book all about dinosaurs in hair, Oaklyn was so excited to open her T-Rex PEZ Candy! Let's be honest here, I was excited too! I love those delicious little candies and always have! Oaklyn had so much fun eating the candies, and then playing with the dispenser. PEZ will soon launch the all new Jurassic World Collection with three new dispensers: T-Rex, Blue the Raptor, and Dilophosaurus. Also included in the initial launch will be a twin pack featuring T-Rex and Blue the Raptor in a Jurassic World themed box! On June 1, 2018 PEZ will also be launching their click and play gift tin! It will feature 4 dispensers and each of them can remove the top to then use in a board game! All of these fun new collectibles can be found at select retailers nationwide and here online!

Sprout Crispy Chews
If I let her, I think Oaklyn could live off of fruit snacks. There's something about the texture and the flavor that every toddler just loves. When it comes to toddler snacks though, I try to look for better options. I love these Sprout Crispy Chews because they aren't your average fruit snack! They are crisped whole grain rice, fruits, and vegetables that are blended together into a delicious and chewy fruit snack! Get this moms, they are made with a FULL serving of real fruits and vegetables and they taste great! Oaklyn loved the Red Fruit Beet and Berry the most but the Orchard Fruit and Carrot was also delicious! We have brought the little single serving pouches in the car, to church, to the park, and any other outing because they are perfect for an on the go snack. I'm so glad I can feel good about giving her these! You can find out more about the product by heading here!

Zenni Optical Kids Glasses
Does your kid need glasses but hate keeping them on?? These ones are so cute and Oaklyn loved wearing them because they were so comfortable! Zenni Optical provides Kid's Flexible glasses for toddlers to pre-teens! These glasses are designed for some serious play which we all know is exactly what little ones need! There are no hinges, no metal parts, and they have an adjustable/detachable strap. You can check out this video and head to this website for more info on these glasses.

So what do you think your little one would enjoy playing with the most this Spring?? There's definitely something for everyone in this box!

All my love,
Aleigh Joy
