Little Thinker Subscription Box Review

Who doesn't like all these subscription box services?  Well, I stumbled on another one that intrigued me.  Since I like educational type things, I wanted to give Little Thinker Box a try.  They gave me the opportunity to try 1 box in exchange for my honest review of the product.

Spring Cleaning with ARM & HAMMER #BakingSodaTips


Who doesn't know Arm & Hammer Baking Soda is a great odor neutralizer?  I used it in our diaper pail when baby girl was much smaller (the smell from those baby diapers get down right horrifying at times) and on occasion, have had to add a splash to our kitchen trash can to squelch the stench so that we didn't have to take it out to the outside garbage can before it was full.

Well, I'm happy to report that I was supplied a box of ARM & HAMMER Baking Soda and a special plastic container for baking soda dispensing from Smiley360 to help me deliver some other ideas on how to use baking soda for your Spring Cleaning needs.

Spatial thinking can be a difficult skill to teach to children and one that isn't all that exciting at first blush.  Learning Resources has hit the nail on the head again with yet another amazing sea-themed learning set.  This time, they are taking on non-standard units of measurement and teaching kids to think about how big something is by comparing it to a rainbow of fun fish in varying sizes.  Krista over at Savory Savings had a chance to review this measuring set with her two daughters - check out the fun they had with pattern making and measuring everything (including their own fish tank!)
If you would like to win your own Learning Resources Fish-In-Line measurement set, enter with the Giveaway Tools below! 

This giveaway is open to US residents, ages 18 and older.  It will run from April 6, 2014 through April 20, 2014 at 11 PM CST.  If you have won a Learning Resources giveaway on any blog in the last six months, you are not eligible to win.  All entries will be verified.  Winner will be emailed (consider adding gloriouslygreengal@gmail.com to your safe list) and will have 48 hours to respond or prize is forfeited and a new winner will be selected.

Apparoo App of the Week - FREE 4/3/14

I think it was last week I mentioned I was going to be working on trying to bring you a limited time FREE or discounted app a day, right?  Perhaps I just mentioned it on the Facebook page, but here it is!  Your first installment!  AND, today is a limited time FREE app available for your iPad or iPhone normally $2.99.
 
Trying to find great apps for moms or kids can be hard with so many available. That's why I've partnered with Apparoo - the app discovery service for busy moms. Each week I'll be sharing the 'Apparoo App of the Week' with you. Very often they've negotiated to bring you great paid apps at heavily discounted rates and sometimes even free. I'm very excited about this and welcome your feedback on the apps you decide to install.
