Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for Growing Minds + Giveaway

Ready for Holiday Shopping? I'm already putting the list! Including making sure big sis' gets her rocking horse this year. I forgot to ask Santa last year and during one of our talks about Santa some months back, she did mention that Santa Claus hasn't given her the rocking horse yet. Haha. 

One of the places I initially check every year for holiday shopping is Lakeshore Learning, both for the kids and for our nieces and nephews. We frequent the Lakeshore Learning store in Carson, California and we spend hours and hours perusing through their learning supplies and educational toys when we're there. 

And if you haven't seen their Gifts for Growing Minds yet, you should. 242 educational products to choose from to help you with your holiday shopping(available in-store and online). And we are giving away one of the toys in the picture above to one lucky reader, so join the giveaway below.

Tips for Visiting Riley's Farm Oak Glen: Apple Picking and Pumpkin Patch

Apple picking, pumpkin picking, strawberry picking, make your own apple cider juice, ride a tractor, have a BBQ lunch, sample different jams, even check out some goats and sheep. What a really cool experience! We went to Oak Glen to check out one of the apple orchards and I may have fallen in love with the idea of having a farm that people can visit, tour and experience.

Our eldest has been learning about apples all week at school some weeks back and I thought why not bring her to do apple picking in Oak Glen. We've only done strawberry picking in Tanaka Farms before and I think I'm really falling in love with going to various farms. But instead of the planned apple picking in Oak Glen, we ended up going to Riley's Farm in Oak Glen for Pumpkin Patch and it was a lot of fun picking the crop ourselves.

Taro Smoothie Recipe: How to Make Homemade Taro Smoothie

Taro Smoothie Recipe! It's so easy to make and with only a few ingredients, you'll never go back to a boba place again. Some calls it taro bubble tea, taro slush, or taro boba while my kids call it a purple juice. I know it's already Fall, but this is good anytime of the year.

When the summer started, we'd be at our nearby Vietnamese restaurant to buy Taro Smoothie at 4 bucks each. That's a lot of money even on one trip alone, imagine us being there almost weekly. So I finally bought taro powder from Amazon and made them at home and it tasted exactly the same as the $4 one. If you want boba with it, that's not a problem as well. All can be made at home. Check out how to make homemade taro smoothie below.

Storks Movie Review + Free Printable Storks Activity Sheets

Pretty funny! That's what I thought of the Storks movie coming out in theaters this Friday. The first few minutes started slow and I got worried as we were watching a preview on a school night. But it eventually took off and I think it's a funny movie not just for the kids but also for the parents.

The movie showed funny realities of having a baby as well as a quick reminder to parents to make time for their kids. Check out what the movie is about below and print the free printable Storks activity sheets for your kids to enjoy.

Dream Frenz Toy and Pillow in One: Review and Giveaway

disclosure: This review was made possible by iConnect and Dream Frenz. I was provided product and compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine.

The toddler started pre-school yesterday. I was partly excited yet mostly got very anxious. For her part, she was excited when we were talking about it for some weeks now but I know it's going to be quite a transition for her as she's been very attached to me since day one.

To prepare her, we let her choose her attire, her lunch box, and she even brought her Dream Frenz stuffed toy and pillow in one to school to keep her company during nap time. Does your kid love having a dolly around? Let us know which design your kid would like and join the giveaway below to win a Dream Frenz for them.
