Teacher Gifts After An Epic School Year

The 2020/2021 school year was one for the books! Learning during a pandemic was quite a challenge. My son loves school, so not being able to be on campus was such a bummer for him. When school finally returned to in-person learning, I think he really thrived! He and I were both very excited! I found teacher gifts after an epic school year we all went through!

My son started a new school last year, which means a new teacher. His teacher happens to be a brand new teacher. Her first year of teaching, in a pandemic! I am so thankful he has such a caring teacher. 

I wanted to put together a sweet gift bag for her. I really appreciate how hard she worked, especially meeting my son over zoom instead of in-person! 

Restful sleep

Silken Pure Sleep Mask in pink

When I saw the Silken Pure Sleep Mask, I knew it would be the perfect gift for my son’s teacher! It’s been such a crazy year, a good night’s sleep is always welcomed. She works extremely hard and works well past school hours to prepare materials and lessons for her students. 

The Silken Pure Sleep Mask is made from pure mulberry silk, which makes it extra soft on your skin! 

Personalized Gift

I have been lucky enough to have a few pieces of art that represent the night sky for special occasions! Our most recent star map is from the day I got the keys to our home! The other special date I wanted to capture was the night my son was born! As you can imagine, both dates are very important to us! 

Well Told Night Sky Insulated Tumbler

I wanted to give the Well Told Night Sky Insulated Tumbler to my son’s teacher, knowing she drinks tea! I thought it would be perfect for her to use at home, on-the-go, or even in the classroom! 

Since it is a personal gift, I did have to spill the bean and ask for a special date she had in mind. She chose the day she got married! 

Learning toys

Originally, I wanted toys for my son to use during his ABA Therapy. However, I’m thinking they may be best for his classroom at school so all of his classmates can use them! I’ll wait until we start ABA Therapy again and see how it goes. 

Skoolzy Matching Eggs Color Sorting Toys

The first toy I chose, is the Skoolzy Matching Eggs Color Sorting Toys. I don’t like toys with a lot of pieces. But I also wanted something my son could use to learn colors, shapes, and assemble items together. 

The Skoolzy Matching Eggs Color Sorting Toys is fun exercise my son and I play with. I disassemble the eggs and mix them up. I then have him match the colors and shapes together and put them back in the carton. 

Skoolzy Shapes Puzzles - Educational Color Matching & Shape Sorter

Next, I chose the Skoolzy Shapes Puzzles – Educational Color Matching & Shape Sorter! I wanted something a little more complex for him to match shapes, numbers, and more. Next time I will have him assemble the foam puzzle pieces. This will come handy during his therapy as well! 

Sun Soul Silk face masks

We received silk face masks from Sun Soul. I chose black and purple, one for my son and myself! 

So far, I love how soft they are. They are sturdy and well made. We have other silk masks and they are flimsy and lose their shape. 

The Sun Soul silk face masks have adjustable straps, easy to clean and keep their shape. I love that they have a built in nose bridge thing, now I know which way the face mask goes! 

The mask is a bit big on my son’s face, which is fine, I can easily adjust the straps to make them fit better. 

With proper care (hand wash and hang dry), I see these lasting for a long time!

Weighted Blankets: Give Yourself A Hug During Stressful Times

Being a single mom and raising my son on my own is easy.

Add COVID, Quarantine, masks, distance learning, assessments over zoom, assessments at school and now I’m finally feeling the stress. Everything seems to be happening at once. I found that weighted blankets will help! Give yourself a hug during stressful times!

Weighted Blankets: Give Yourself A Hug During Stressful Times

Last year, I received a few weighted blankets that I was very grateful for. I loved the idea of a removable cover, so I could wash them whenever I wanted. However, I quickly realized what a hassle it can be to remove the cover and then try to put the cover back on. And even when I got the cover back on, the insert would pull to one side or even end up at the foot of the bed. The blanket rarely stayed in place inside the cover!

Beating The Dog Days Of Summer

Beating The Dog Days Of Summer

What’s that old saying? It’s the dog days of Summer! I’m a dog person plain and simple. Growing up I remember us always having a dog, and as soon as I moved out on my own. It’s a memory I wanted my children to share also. So let’s talk about some of my favorite pup products and how they will help you in beat those dog days of summer!

Recently our beloved dog Twinkie passed at the old age of 12, I got her when I was 18 and she was one of the most amazing dogs ever. When she passed at the end of 2019 my children were heartbroken. I wasn’t really ready to get another dog just yet but my children started asking for another puppy and in May of 2020 our sweet Arthas was born. We just recently brought him home and couldn’t be more excited to have paws in the family again. Arthas will actually start training to be an emotional support pup for my 6-year-old Ansley who has several anxiety disorders.

Beating The Dog Days Of Summer!

What do you need when you have a new pup? New toys for him to love! Now with Pupcycle, you can have them shipped right to your front door. Pupcycle is the first Eco-Friendly dog toy box with fun goodies that your pup is sure to be over the moon for. What is my favorite thing about this box ( well it actually comes in a 100% recyclable bag )? It’s that there is no monthly subscription! This is what has turned me off on so many other dog boxes it because it’s another added expense each month but with Pupcycle you order when YOU want.

So what comes inside the bag? Arthas’ favorite toy is the plushie by far. Perfect for tiny chewing teeth. We also got a hide a treat toy, and a squeaky toy, both of which he’s growing into. Help the planet, and help your pup have fun and get your very one Pupcycle box, and be sure to check out their website, Facebook, and Instagram for more information!

With Summer and with getting a dog that means you are outside a lot more. Being outside brings those dreaded fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes. We live close to a wooded area so we get all kinds of creepy crawlies. Don’t worry because Wondercide can take care of those pests. These amazing products kill on contact and keep them at bay. It’s a great choice because it’s safe to use around pets and your family.

Wondercide

My favorite items that came in my Wondercide package was the Scent Sampler Flea & Tick Pack. This sample comes with four different scents to make sure you love the product you pick for your pack! My favorite scent is the Lemongrass Spray With a clean crisp smell it leaves your home refreshed while keeping those fleas and ticks away. It’s proven to start working in just 2 minutes.

Seeing the joy that our new pup has brought to my kid’s lives is something that every parent is thankful for. Since getting Arthas my children have that little part of their lives back that they were missing when Twinkie passed away. I hope that you love these pet-friendly products from Pupcycle and Wondercide as much as our family does, and helps beat those dog days of summer!

As the mom of four children that are eight and under, I’m always looking for the fashion that covers all our needs. We are always looking for toddler fashion built for fun. Keep reading to find out about this adorable company that I’ve found to fill all my kid’s needs.

Toddler Fashion Built For Fun.

Doodle Pant Fashion
Sea Turtle Leggings

When buying clothing for the little ones I look for things such as durability and how much range of motion they are able to achieve. You know as well as I do if something isn’t comfy and is movement restricting they are going to hate it. With Doodle Pants Clothing I don’t have to worry about that. These clothes are tailored to move and stretch with your active little one. My two year old loves running and playing outside. She climbs and hops all over with ease in her Sea Turtle Cotton Leggings. Doodle Pants are the perfect toddler fashion built for fun!

Sea Turtle 3D Hoodie

To match her leggings she has the adorable Sea Turtle 3D Hoodie. This is the perfect sweatshirt for little kids. I love that it has a zippable ” Turtle shell” on the back which is great for sticking her binky or small treasures in so she doesn’t lose them. It would even fit a diaper and wipes if you didn’t feel like carrying a diaper bag! If your anything like me fewer items to carry are a godsend.

When these two pieces are put together they make the perfect outfit. I love the fact that so much of their stuff is gender-neutral. Now your little one can be anything that they want to be and look amazing doing it. Which is exactly what kids need, to be able to be free and express them-selfs whenever they want. Sometimes I feel like that creativity gets taken away when I hear someone say that little girls can’t like dinosaurs or little boys can’t like rainbows. These adorable clothes let your little ones be innocent for just a little longer.

Doodle Pants

So what do you think? Do you think Doodle Pants are the perfect toddler fashion build for fun? Are you interested in getting some rocking 3D fashion for your little one? Be sure to check out their Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for more information.
