Educational Insights GeoSafari Jr Underwater Explorer Boat Review & Giveaway

 I was provided the below mentioned products in order to provide a review.

        I have another great product from Educational Insights to share with you.  Another great fun science product is the GeoSafari Jr Underwater Explorer Boat.  Explore what is under the surface of the water without even putting your head in the water.


     GeoSafari Jr Underwater Explorer Boat makes it possible to look underwater and explore without goggles or even getting our head wet.  Its perfect for trips to the lake, beach, swimming pool, bath tub, water tables, or anywhere there is water.  The boat has a clear bottom with a magnified area that makes it easy to see below the surface of the water and even magnify it.  The magnification is 3X.  The transparent bottom eliminates surface glare.  The bow and stern are made for child size gripping.  There is a ring buoy wrist strap so you don't lose your boat while exploring.  It also has a break away cord for safety.  The steering wheel and propellers actually turn.


      I took this out when the boys were getting ready for a bath one night.  Jayden of course claimed it when he got in.  He was excited to see what toys were on the bottom of the tub.  Since we filled the tub with bubbles we could not see the bottom.  The boat worked great for finding the snail and a few other items at the bottom.  The boat also was fun to put things in and push around the tub.  Jayden had a great time with it and didn't want to give it up for Evan to try.  The ring buoy is flexible and fits easily on his wrist.  The safety break away cord worked great to unsnap and snap back together.  I wish I would have remembered to bring this with us when we went to the lake last week.  I know this would have been great fun, but we will have it for next time for sure.


     Educational Insights has a site full of great educational fun products for kids.  As a mom and a teacher I find so many great products on their site.  There are many great items that would make great holiday gifts.

Fall Farm Visit to Tolmachoff Farms Plus Discount $2 off Coupon

I was provided free admission for my family in exchange for this post. 
 

     Sunday our family went to the farm.  We went to visit the Tolmachoff Farm nearby.  We have gone to this farm for the past few years during this time.  There is so much to do there.  We were supposed to attend last weekend, but since I was sick we were not able to make it.  So we went on Sunday.  The boys were excited to do looks of fun farm activities.  They were most excited about the goats, horses, and train ride.  When we got there the line was pretty long, but it moved quickly.  It seems our nice little farm nearby has become very popular.  But of course I couldn't keep this place a secret any longer.

Reed & Barton Blown Glass Ornaments Review & Giveaway


     I really can't believe how fast the year is going and it is almost Christmas already. I enjoy decorating for Christmas.  I remember as a kid decorating the tree with my mom and brother.  It was a fun time.  Our tree was always a fun project to decorate. When I began dating my husband I was introduced to my now sister in law.  At the time she was a glass blower.  She has made me a few beautiful glass blown ornaments for my tree over the years before she stopped doing that job.  When I was given the opportunity to get a blown glass ornament from Reed & Barton I was excited.  I had Jayden look with me at all the great ornaments they had.  Our tree has lots of snowmen so I though for sure he would want a snowman for the tree, but I was wrong.  He picked the nutcracker, he said it reminded him of his nana cause she likes nutcrackers.

      I have another great product from Learning Resources to share with you today.  This is the Under the Sea Shells Word Problem Activity Set.  Jayden is already working on word problems in 1st grade.  He is really good in math, but sometimes word problems trip him up.  I thin he just doesn't take the time to think it through.  So we tried he Under the Sea Shells Word Problem Activity Set to practice.

NewAir AW-121E SKU: 1307220757 12 Bottle Counter top Thermoelectric Wine Cooler - Stainless Steel


I was provided the below mentioned products in order to provide a review

     I like to have a nice glass of wine sometimes.  It is nice to sit back with friends or just with my hubby and enjoy a glass of wine.  Recently I was offered the opportunity to try the NewAir AW-121E 12 Bottle Counter top Thermoelectric Wine Cooler.  I of course could not turn it down.  I have always wanted a wine cooler.  I think they look so nice and it just seems better to have your wine separate from all your other food that is in the refrigerator.
