As we are coming to an end to our #FloridaFunshine series, I wanted to touch on some of the products that we got to use on our trip. Each one of the great products below will be part of our giveaway!
Star Kids Snack and Play Travel Tray
The snack trays that we got from Springy’s helped use imensly on our trip. Not only were the boys able to use it to eat on, but play with their toys. We had a lot of activities for them to do on the ride, that they would not have been able to do on their laps. The pockets on the side of the lap tray are great for holding crayons, snacks, and drinks. The edging around the tray is great for keeping things in. Q LOVES grapes, but grapes roll. The use of these laps trays also helped by giving us less mess from food falling all over the place. These will come in handy for any trip we take, and I am so thankful that we found them at Springy’s!
Usborne Books on CD
Again, I need to send out a HUGE thank you to Denise at Usborne (BooksToSavour.ca) for giving us the idea to have bring along Usborne books on CD. They were a great alternative to watching movies all day long, and probably the one thing that really calmed H down when nothing else would. I can’t even tell you how many times we used it. I love that listening to the books was stimulating him. He was soon reading along with the stories, and reciting them at other times as well. I had always had a hard time reading books while in a moving car, so this was a really great alternative to it.
Another product we really love is the Modern Twist colouring place-mats we picked up from Simply Green Baby at the Bump, Baby and Toddler Expo. As soon as I saw these, I knew my boys would love them. Q is happiest when he has a crayon, marker, or pen in his hand. He LOVES to draw. These place-mats are made from silky food-grade, hand silk-screened silicone, and they won’t crease or rip. They are non-porous and a germ-free surface, and free of BPA, lead, latex, phthalates and other harsh chemicals (great for kids who love to put everything in their mouth……Q….). You can use both washable, and dry-erase markers on them, then simply wipe clean and use again, and again, and again! They worked great for our road trip, but are also good to stick in the diaper bag or purse (they fold up fairly small) to have on hand anywhere you go!
Now, you may thing I am crazy, but I have found another use for my Freeze-eeze holder… I have this thing about wood while eating, (think nails on a chalkboard effect). Popsicle sticks, those little forks they give you with french fries, and wooden steak knives freak.me.out! Crazy right? While at the trailer, I was faced with some wooden steak knives when I wanted to cut up my orange. I squirmed a little before I realized that Freeze-eeze was my solution! I now carry one in my purse for whenenver I am faced with this strange problem I have! (LOL)
