John 3:16 tells us that “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Happy Easter to all

One of MamatheFox’s favorite things when I was a young girl was getting a fresh piece of rainbow scratch paper. It was a treat, and I only ever got it at school from my art teacher. It was a magical time to slowly use the wooden stylist and slowly but deliberately scratch my hard out. The thrill of unveiling the colors and making a pretty design, from my own imagination, was now found before me. Man, those were special times. Now I am so excited to show my children this Easter how to use and how to understand the special place this type of craft left in my heart.

Books are my favorite Easter Basket filler! They are useful, education, and a spread joy to share those cuddle time moments with your kids. Thomas Nelson just released a great new book, Night Night Bible Stories that is wonderful for gifting this Easter. It has 30 stories for bedtime that share the gospel, both old testament and new testament. Each story has a rhyming takeaway to help your little ones remember how much God loves them and cares for them. Also, at the end, there is a simple pray you can pray together that touches on the main truths from the story that was just told. The soft pages and cover, along with the pretty images found among the stories insure that this book will be a winner in the Easter basket you make this year.
Small children seem to gravitate towards touch and feel style books. Very small children, ones who have not yet learned to read, can engage physically with a book and understand a connection between them and the story. By feeling the soft, rough, fuzzy, bumpy textures they can help connect the words to the picture and begin to develop a love of books. This book features a bunch of animal families getting ready for bed. You can cuddle with your little one as you read this book together and feel secure in God’s love.
This beautifully made touch and feel book is a sure winner this Easter. It has a fun, bumpy boarder to the actual board book pages, giving it a fun outside for the kids to feel when they are carrying the book around their home. This story showcases a bunny who has met a new friend and together they will help your children discover all about God’s Easter blessings. By using the features of the world that small children are noticing, like colors, weather and nature this book will be an instant favorite in your home.
If your kids like silly books and know how to giggle then this new book by Rory Feek is going to fill your home with laughter and smiles.

This chaos filled story will get you snicking right from the start. As a mother I think it’s such a fun book but I really fell in love with the amazing illustrations by Bruno Robert. If you are looking for a book to read at your children’s story time at school this year, grab a copy of this book to read to the kids and then donate another one to the classroom so that the kids can enjoy the silly tale over and over.
Kathie Lee Gifford is a trusted voice, who feels almost like a friend to many American’s.

Big Love is a children’s book that features a moody Baboon as the protagonist. The savanna of Africa where he roams is dry and desolate. Hungry, miserable, and mean animals seek only their own interests. Baboon watches as, one by one, Rhinoceros destroys Termite’s castle in his race to find food, Hare chooses not to share food with her family, and Lion steals food from his pride. This new book’s beautiful message makes it a wonderful gift for those who want to build a loving WE community–from home to school, neighborhoods, church, or travel. If people can begin to encourage one another to pursue their passions–with kindness, sharing, listening, and care–we can overcome anything and achieve extraordinary dreams together.

As a homeschool mama on a budget, I love Kid O’s A to Z Magnatab. With a magnetic stylus as the pen, the bead board as paper, and any finger as an eraser the Magnatab can be used anywhere, anytime. I love my kids can take their Magnatab in the car or into a waiting room. The Magnatab helps kids explore creativity and learning with sensory inviting play. They can see their completed work when each bead is pulled up to form letter, then simply erase and start again! Practicing letters is now engaging and sustainable!
Not only is this bead board a perfect gift for a child, it’s amazing to have in the car. Keeping kids busy in the car, especially during the Holiday season, is so important. A car ride can really make or break a weekend (or week!) This glow-in-the-dark Magnatab holds the same concept as the A to Z Magnatab (see above). What makes this one different is that kids can let their imagination run wild and create anything they want. They can practice letters, numbers, spelling, or just simply make a picture! I love that these Magnatab’s are completely mess free – no pencil sharpeners or messy markers, just the magnetic stylus! The recommended age for this Magnatab is 3-8 years.

You can use it on not only your neck and shoulders but around your knees, feet, hands and other body parts. Its pain relief that works.

Do you know a kid who is a picky eater? Practically all kids refuse some type of nutrition from their diets. Some may hate broccoli, others may loath berries and apples. With such busy days and picky eaters it’s so hard to have them sit and eat fully nutritional meals every day. This is why smart care takers lean on adding a vitamin or two to their kids diet. We take a multivitamin at dinner each night. We have switched over to Renzo’s Kids Vitamins for several reasons. They are vegan, contain zero sugar and are gummy free. Many kids have a hard time chewing a gummy vitamin, or are too young to swallow a pill – this is where Renzo’s steps in for you. Their tablets are chewable and dissolve in your mouth, making it easy to take. Kid flavors like Oh-Oh-Oh Orange, Cherry Chery Mo’ Cherry. and Lil’ Green Apple make it fun and enjoyable for the kids taking them. We love the daily multi “Picky Eater Multi” and try to add in a “Bright & Brainy B6” or “Iron Strong” a few times per week too. Check out their site in the link above for more information and to see what is inside each vitamin.

We wish you the happiest of Mother’s Day and hope it is spent doing what you love best!
I love this day of celebration mostly because I get a chuckle out of watching my husband take on the impossible task of independently feeding and clothing two kids for church and brunch. I can’t help intervening to inform my husband our daughter isn’t wearing shoes or my son yet again took off his dress pants and switched back to pajamas.
That’s why Mother’s Day always involves brunch right? Dad’s can’t keep the kids alive and clean all the way to dinner so we have to get the celebration out first thing in the morning!
Then nap time rolls around and exhausted dads everywhere finally find the time to sit and praise their wives with the common phrase
“I don’t know how you do this all day, everyday!”
Moms are a special beings because we do it all day every day…and love it.
Yes we love the drama, kissing ouchies, sweeping a forever dirty floor, and even dare I say it, changing diapers. We love the chaos because it’s OUR chaos brought to us by OUR kiddos. We love our kids unconditionally and want nothing but the best for their lives.
Which leads to my husband getting a chuckle from my Mother’s Day want list. You see the word “want” has lost a lot of value since being a mother. Why waste money on things I want when there are two little humans with a ton of needs. But the funnest part is I actually geek out over baby and house wear items! One of my favorite Christmas gifts this year was an avocado tool.
So my husband struggled yet again between finding a balance between getting me something beautiful and getting me something I wanted for our house.
But if you geek out over baby gear like I do, you will agree the Stokke Tripp Trapp Chair is not only practical its a beautiful piece of accent furniture for your home.
My family is a huge supporter of family dinners. I think it is important to have everyone in one place at one time with no distractions. Family dinners is also one of the reasons we chose to introduce solids with baby led weaning. We want our children eating what we are eating and engaging in the same healthy habits we choose for ourselves. The Tripp Trapp Chair was specifically designed to fit comfortably against a table. An infant, toddler, and adult can all find a perfect fit up against any table with the adjustable seat and diagonal design.
We love having our children at the table and using our Stokke chair for meals, crafts, games, and baking.
Any little one can find maximum comfort by having the perfect height and depth combination with the adjustable seat and footplate. The goal is to promote correct body alignment for a seated child by getting their feet to rest squarely on the footplate. A 6 month old and 60 year old can both find the same comfort and support in the Tripp Trapp Chair.
I love that my 3 year old can easily climb onto this chair and be at the perfect height to reach his food.
My 6 month old nephew can be supported and secure in the Tripp Trapp and still have the benefit of eating at the table with the family.
And I actually love using this chair when I am sewing! I adjust the seat so that my foot rests perfectly on the sewing pedal. The leveled seat and angled backing supports my postures and prevents me from hunching over. It is encouraging to know that once my kids eventually stop using this chair it can still find use in our home.
Safe and Secure
I truly appreciate the ingenious design of the Tripp Trapp Chair! We use to have a lot of chair battles with our kiddos. My 3 year old son liked to push against the table with his hands and consistently got disciplined for sitting on his knees. My 18 month old daughter liked to push against the table with her feet and watch me have a panic attack.
The concave design of the chair back helps me scoot my kids’ lower half under the table; preventing their legs from escaping.
The Tripp Trapp chair extender gliders provide increased backward stability. Meaning pushing, rocking, and backward arching isn’t going to tip this chair. Our first dinner using the Tripp Tripp my daughter was being ornery and pushed the table with her hands to try and rock backward. Her chair scooted away from the table and didn’t rock in the slightest bit. I was amazed and my daughter was defeated and frustrated her little “trick” only made her food unreachable.
Also included with the Tripp Trapp chair is a 5-point harness. The straps are durable and very easy to clean.The back of the straps includes a fastener that can be adjusted to keep the straps from slipping off baby’s shoulders. My 6 month old nephew felt very secure strapped in and my 18 month old could not escape.
Easy to clean
Yes! My favorite part of this high chair! I had a fancy chair with a cushion for 2 months. 2 MONTHS and then I gave it away! Personally I thought it was the dumbest baby product in our home. Even with a toothpick and toothbrush I couldn’t completely clean the cracks and crannies of our highchair, which resulted in mold!
The Tripp Trapp Chair is pretty straight forward when cleaning. The solid beach wood is easy to quickly wipe down with a wet cloth and there is no place for food to hide. I am confident our chair is clean and there isn’t dingy food bits wedged in crevices waiting to mold.
Variety of colors
Check our the variety of woods and colors the Tripp Trapp Chair comes in. You can easily find a chair that accents your kitchen, matches your dinning set, or is a bold vibrant pop of color in your house.
Tripp Trapp Baby Set
One accessory you can buy for your Tripp Trapp Chair is the baby set. The environmentally friendly plastic accessory easy attaches to any Tripp Trapp chair. The set was made to support children from 6 months to 3 years.
For my newly sitting 6 month old nephew, the hi-back and seating rail supported him from loosing his balance.
He was able to sit at the table without the risk my face planting into our oak table top. He was certainly happy to be sitting at the table with his older cousins.
Although my 3 year old does not need the baby set to sit securely in the Tripp Trapp chair I appreciated he can fit in it. We have the baby set on our chair to keep my 18 month old safe and secure. My son eats multiple snacks a day while I work, clean, or tend to his sister. He thinks it is awesome to sit in her cool chair while I appreciate the assurance of his safety while I am multitasking. With the baby set my son can’t get down without my help, he can’t sit on his knees, he can’t fall off a chair, and he can’t tip the chair back. So if you have multiple little ones under 4 you can use the Tripp Trapp with the baby set without having to remove baby set to fit the older ones.
Tripp Trapp Cushion
For an extra splash of style and comfort Stokke makes cushions for the Tripp Trapp chair. These lush comfort cushions prevent babies from slipping down during meal time and provide extra support on little backs from 6 month to 3 years. The 100% polyester material comes in a variety of colors and patterns.
We loved our cushion was able to to fit on the baby set as well as directly onto Tripp Trapp chair. The versatility and durability make it a practical addition to our chair.
My sister was completely impressed when she started to wipe down the cushion after her son “ate” an avocado. Everything cleaned up perfectly without staining or scrubbing.
I personally loved how waterproof it felt as my daughter dumped her cup on herself. Baby can be ready to sit back on the cushion without having to let it dry, which also means the inside stuffing is safe from molding.

From their new silicone coffee mug (we love this mug!) to reusable place mats for the dining room table, to dishes, spoons and reusable snack bags, GoSili has a reusable product for you.
