Kids Academy Learning Apps. *Review

 Kids Academy Kids Apps

Designed for both iphone and ipad, this app from Kids Academy is geared for kindergarten students. This app is a bit more interactive than the ones that are geared for preschoolers. The free version doesn't let you get as far in the games as you would like, but I think that it would be worth it to buy the advanced pass. The graphics are splendid and very interactive for the kids. I used this on my iphone and we didn't have any trouble with seeing the different activities that we wanted to do.



Preschool & Kindergarten Learning Kids Games

With this app you can trace the numbers with your finger and collect fireflies for the jar. With the free version you can get through the number 3. I really liked the alphabet portion of this game. The colors are so bright and fun. It shows each letter of the alphabet, both upper and lower case along with a picture of something that goes along with that letter.  The free version again doesn't let you get as far as you would like. I think this game would be worth it to buy the complete version. I think it is very interactive for the young preschoolers.

This app is geared for preschool to kindergarten age children. They learn to trace the numbers and each time they get it right they collect fireflies to put in the jar. I tried the game myself just to see how exact you had to be to get credit. We know preschoolers don't always have the steadiest hand, especially on a small iphone screen. It wasn't necessary to be perfect at all, just somewhat accurate. I thought the error factor was quite on track for this age group. The graphics are bright and colorful. The sounds and lights are very engaging.

Spa for Ma

Natural Bath and Body Products for the entire family!
Would You Lather is a family own, small business, striving to provide safe, natural products for the family. Finding chemical free skin care products can be very difficult in such a commercialized market. Would You Lather takes the time to develop skin care products that you will feel good about using!
They make their batches small to secure quality and freshness. Made in Fairland Indiana, their line includes, soaps, washes, body butter, lotion bars and much more. Their scents are unique and use only essential oils to derive.

 When I first started making soap, the one thing I really never explored was liquid soap, let alone the foaming style. I tried the foaming wash in Log Cabin scent. Made with purified water, saponified olive oil, glycerin and a combination of 5 essential oils. Log Cabin is a perfect scent for the fall season! This is a great soap to keep next to the sink. The kids especially loved the foaming component and it actually helps save on soap used. No sulfates to dry out your skin!

Lotion bars have long been a favorite of mine. So much easier to carry than a liquid lotion. It is much more nourishing and long lasting as well. Available in Lemongrass and Herbal. These are a staple for the dry winter months! Included Jojoba oil, cocoa butter, beeswax and essential oils.

 The next handmade product I was able to try was the Body Butter in Sunshine. Now doesn't the name of that just radiate health and summer fun. 100 % vegetable based, the body butter contains shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, jojoba oil and olive oil. That along with essential oils and you can get this product in a selection of unique scents. Sunshine is a sweet citrus based scent. This is a thick lotion that you will only need a small amount to use. It isn't loaded down with water like many commercial products are!

 The Sugar Lip Scrub Set includes a Lip Scrub and an All Natural Lip Balm. The lip scrub has brown sugar in it and helps to exfoliate your lips. You know those little dry pieces that just sit there and bug you are now easily rubbed off in a nourishing way. The scrub also has it's own moisturizing honey and oils that will nourish ones the exfoliate is done. You can also follow up with a brush of the natural lip balm. Darling set, this would a great gift!

Buttons Diaper Cloth Diaper *Review & Giveaway

The first thing I noticed that was unique about the  Buttons Diapers is their 2 in 1 system. The insert actually snaps into the diaper. I have seen the pocket diapers, and boy do those look difficult to put together and manage. I much prefer being able to snap the insert right into the cover of the diaper. Snapping it in place is going to keep it in place without the difficulty of having to stuff it into a pocket style diaper. Genius idea!

 Completely machine washable just like most cloth diapers are. 

 Love the cute insignia button embroidered on the back!

 2 layers of PUL in each cover

 Easy to snap in inserts, keeps it in place while baby is on the move
Daytime Inserts have 4 layers of micro-fiber to wick away moisture and help protect against diaper rash.

 Double gusset elastic legs for keeping 'stuff' in the diaper, not leaking out the leg holes. A nice strong elastic, but not too much to dig into babies chubby little legs.

 So much easier than stuffing a pocket I think. And the clean up will be much easier as well!

3 different sizes in one diaper cover. Snap the buttons for a small, medium, or large diaper cover to suit the size and weight of your baby. Works for weight 9-35 pounds.

Enter to win a Buttons Diaper Cover and one insert!

Ends Sept 15th
