Create The Perfect Family Activities With Spin Master Toys

It’s been the year of Zoom calls and distant learning online. Recently I have been looking for more ways to get the kids offline and to connect more as a family. If we have to stay home, we might as well make it fun! I thought I would share my partnership with Spin Master with you, as they are a one-stop shop for anything you need to create more entertainment at home! 


This is an amusing, witty, and highly entertaining guessing game that has been loads of fun during quarantine. Hedbanz is an easy to play question game of “What am I?” You ask  “yes” or “no” questions before time runs out to figure out if the cartoon card on your headband is an animal, food or object!  The Hedbanz categories are simple (animal, food or object), allowing everyone, even young children to join in on the family fun! We played with my niece and my daughter. They are 4 and 6 years old and they loved it! 

Also an added bonus, the Hedbanz game is EDUCATIONAL play for kids. While playing Hedbanz, kids will develop their deductive reasoning skills with the game’s simple question and answer method. Coming up with questions that will lead to answers, kids will also practice their critical thinking skills!

There are endless possibilities of activities to do with GUND stuffed animals.

Great for kids of all ages, we played make believe with the Jumbo Chomper T-Rex with our 2 year old twins for hours, and redecorated the kid’s rooms with the Jumbo plushies for an updated modern look (we donated all the small stuffed animals that cause clutter, and went for look that was stylish and functional with GUND). They are huggable, cuddly and surface washable!

Why I Choose Organic Alternatives To Cow Milk For My Kids

As parents we only want the absolute best for our children. Sound machines to sleep well, flashcards to stimulate their brain (they will be advanced… yes, I’m that Mom) and toys to hit those developmental milestones. Okay, I’m kidding about most of that list, but I do ensure they have a diet that is packed with healthy, organic nutrients to help them thrive. 


Why organic you ask? 


Choosing organic foods and cereals for your little ones refers to the way farmers grow and process products, such as fruit, vegetables, grains, dairy and meat. Farmers don’t use chemical fertilisers or pesticides in organic foods, also causing less pollution and dangerous waste. When non-orgnanic food is produced it arrives at the grocery store with chemicals like glyphosate in it. Glyphosate is an herbicide used by grain farmers to kill weeds. The healthy bacteria in our gut actually possesses the same critical biochemical pathways as weeds. Foods that contain glyphosate can wipe out your much needed gut flora that is important for a healthy immune system.  Let that sink in for a minute. 


After the age of one we started the twins on organic cow’s milk. Shortly after that I started to notice patches of dry, red areas popping up all over Ranger’s legs, the creases behind his knees and back of his arms. He was diagnosed with eczema. As a dermatology nurse I was already well aware of irritants to babies delicate skin. We use natural skin care products, and laundry detergents free of chemicals to help protect his skin. So I started looking at his diet more closely to see if that could be what was exacerbating his skin condition. By eliminating foods and checking his skin for improvement we were able to narrow it down to cow’s milk. 


Due to this sensitivity, we started looking for alternative foods to cow’s milk to add to Ranger’s diet. We found Kabrita’s organic multigrain and apple cinnamon porridges are made with goat’s milk. 


Why we love Kabrita:

-The entire Kabrita product line is is certified glyphosate free!

-Compared to cow milk, goat milk protein forms a smaller, softer, and looser curd in the tummy, leading to quick and easy digestion.


-The fats in goat milk are also naturally easy to digest. They are smaller than cow milk fats and rich in beneficial short and medium chain fatty acids.


-Goat milk contains 6x the amount of gut-supportive prebiotic oligosaccharides.


-Goat milk is rich in critical nutrients, like calcium with no added sugars. They only use non-GMO and organic ingredients!

They boys love the apple cinnamon porridge and I even use it to bake. Plus they have goat cheese snack puffs that are perfect when you are on the go! You can find more information about Kabrita and how to get a FREE trial kit offer here
