A new way to play and learn!

IMG_2975 If you’ve been following me for awhile then you know that I do not allow the kids to have screen time during the week.  Well that has recently changed, thanks to our friends over at Osmo  We were given the opportunity to try out our very own Osmo kit and couldn’t wait to dive into the new adventures.  We have been using it for about 3 weeks now and I love the activities.  It’s not your normal screen time and that makes me happy.  With Osmo the kids are able to utilize their imagination, spell, code, become better at math and so much more!

 

After opening the package, Elle and Maveric eagerly created their profiles. The kids have been so excited to play with their new Osmo set that they have literally facetimed family members just to show them how amazingly fun and innovative the activities really are!

The kids instantly fell in love with Mo, and his way to truly gage and encourage them to be creative and enjoy the journey.   The Monster kit so far is Elle’s favorite because she an artist at heart, however, it helps Maveric to step outside of his comfort zone and try new things.  They really get a kick out of Mo and his antics.

Each item that the kids draw, Mo will magically pull them into his world of adventures.  The kids love seeing their drawing come to life and the interactions are priceless.

I am so excited to purchase some of the other activities like the coding!  I have been trying to get Elle involved in more STEAM activities, so this is going to get perfect.  Also I am extremely excited that the just announced the new Iphone kit!  Now I don’t have to worry about the kids fighting over who’s next and it’s perfect for traveling.   FullSizeRender (35).jpg

I don’t know about you, but I HATE shopping (now).  When I was younger in my 20’s I loved it.  I loved going to the mall, planning out my wardrobe for the week and “shopping til I dropped”.  As a mom of 4, my time is extremely VALUABLE! Anything that can make my life easier I am here for it, and that’s why I absolutely wanted to partner with Easy Kicks!  Easy Kicks is the only sneaker club subscription box that allows parents to easily shop for their fast growing kids.  IMG_2818

Since easy kicks is backed by Nike, they are able to offer various styles at an amazing deal!  Seriously your choice of cool Nike and Converse delivered to your door each month for only $20?! IMG_2824

Sign up is so easy all you have to do is the following 4 steps:

  1. Sign up and pick your kicks
  2. Wear your kicks out and return them
  3. Order new kicks
  4. Repeat steps 2 & 3

The kids were thrilled when their new kicks arrived!  Details are so important to me and Easy Kicks didn’t let us down when the shoes arrived they were individually labeled with each kids name!

Because Easy Kicks makes it so EASY for you, they include a prepaid return bag, in our case Elle’s shoes were a little snug so we got to utilize this option and we look forward to the process!

In addition to all the personalized items, Easy Kicks also sent cute stickers, because what kids doesn’t like stickers?

One thing I love about Easy Kicks, it that they either donate used shoes to kids in need or recycle them into playgrounds or sports fields with the help of Nike Grind.  I can’t think of a better deal, seriously! Cool shoes, free delivery, personalized experience, and donations to a great cause! Sounds like a total winner in our books and I know you will absolutely love this program for your child(ren)!
