A long time ago my sisters blogged. Just kidding. Let me finish that sentence: A long time ago my sisters blogged about some things they loved to use around home. You know, products, personal and household favorites...etc. I love that sort of thing because you know you can trust it. True, some of it might just be personal preference, but I am 100% more confident buying something that I know someone likes and actually uses. Plus, I always trust a product review way more when I know there's no chance someone is being paid to say it's awesome. So, I wondered if we could help each other out. If you want.
So, here is my mom tip! We love The Friend magazine around here of course. Big surprise there. But we also have been getting this:
little gem over the last year. It from Highlights, but it's called High Five and is for ages 2-6.
We love it! Each month we look forward to new stories and a comic, poems, math exercises, brain teasers, a craft suggestion that is totally doable, recipes we usually try that kids can do, and a game you can cut out and keep until it gets played so much it falls apart.
I wish they were paying me to say all this, because this is starting to sound like an ad (Highlights people are you out there?!?!)- but we seriously love it and I always think, "I should tell my friends how great this is."
It makes me feel like an on top of it mom to do so much educational, fun stuff that I don't have to come up with myself.
Ok, your turn- do you have a favorite educational toy or product we all need to check out? It doesn't have to be something you buy either. It could be a fun educational activity or game. Let's hear it!
