KitHub STEAM Kits Make Even the Most Un-Steamy Kids Fall in Love with Electronics! And a Robot-Making Kit for Only $9!!
Special thanks to the wonderful people at Kit Hub for providing us with these products to review!
|One of my daughters wanted to make the Light Up Mask, which is a fun and entertaining introduction to simple circuits. My daughter designed her own light-up superhero mask using electronics. It came with everything she needed, even the lithium battery and LED light. She loved following the easy directions, experimenting with the LED, and making the mask her own!|
|My son couldn't wait to make the Motorized Bot! He had so much fun discovering what made the LEDs light up, what made the circuits work, and getting the motor to drive his bot around. It was really cool to watch! Such an awesome introduction to robotics! It only costs $9 with the discount (use the code School10) and it comes with an led, battery holder, battery, hobby motor, alligator clips, cup, wires, everything you need!|
|You can get the Kit Hub kits for $10-$15 each and they also have classroom kits! There's a discount, too! Save 10% on your order with the code SCHOOL10. Let me know what you decide to make with your kiddo!|

|Our kids loved this place! We're always visiting national parks and they are just getting so much appreciation for the outdoors, history, and taking care of and preserving our past. It makes me a proud mama!|
|Maybe Arizona isn't anywhere in your neck of the woods but I encourage you to search out national parks or monuments in your state or a neighboring one. They make such an incredible field trip and are often free, especially if you are a veteran family or military.|
What's your favorite national park or historical landmark? Share with me! We love roadtrips and are always looking for new places to visit!

In just three more months, Black Friday and Cyber Monday will be upon us! For that reason, I'm posting my first Christmas Gift DIY. This is something that's been cherished by my children for 3 years and was very affordable to make but does take some preparation. If you decide to try it, let me know! And I'd love to see pictures!
I made the rabbit's table out of two cookie cutter tree scraps. The ladder is made with a dowel rod that I cut and then hot glued. I wound it with thick string for aesthetic appeal.
I found a 4-pack of tiny chalkboards at Michael's for $1! The rug was part of a 4-pack of coasters I found at the Dollar Tree. I bought the books on-line from Amazon. The pages are real and can be turned and written in.
The only thing I "splurged" on was this nursery set--my youngest daughter loves babies so we just had to have a nursery! The rugs here are made with cut and frayed washcloths from the Dollar Tree.
I made the canned food out of small thread spools I colored with a silver paint marker and then taped printable labels to them I found by Googling "free dollhouse printables".
Almost a year later and my kiddos are still playing with their animal house, adding to it with new family members and friends whenever they have saved up allowance or birthday money. It makes my heart so glad that they love this gift that I put so much thought and time into!

How cute is our Lucy in her new pet bed? With Christmas just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to give you guys a great gift idea for your pets!
|Lay one piece of fabric down, place your foam or old shirts for stuffing (we used foam for ours so that does increase the price; old shirts or other old material or cotton is perfect, too), and lay the second piece of fabric on top.|
|Cut tabs one inch by four inches wide all around the fabric. Make sure to cut through both pieces of fleece at the same time so it all lines up.|
|Tie the tabs into a double knot all the way around the dog bed. Make sure that you are tying one tab from the top and one from the bottom and that they are all lining up. Don’t miss one or you’ll have a hole.|

Where To Buy It
Your pooch has tried Purina Beneful and loves it? Well, now you can find it at Target, Walmart, and regional grocers like Kroger, Fry's, and Albertsons. Remember, dogs can be sensitive to change, especially when it comes to food. Even if you currently feed your dog Beneful, you'll want to transition to the new Beneful recipe slowly. Make the change over 7-10 days, gradually adding more Beneful and less of the previous food to your dog's dish each day. Let me know if your pooch tries it!

|This week, we learned about Asia. I planned this knowing that we'd be receiving a Japan Funbox in the mail any day. What's that, you ask? It's a Japanese Candy & Snack Box!|
|The Japan Funbox is a monthly subscription service stuffed full of Japanese snacks and there is always free shipping worldwide! We were excited to open it and snack on the contents during a movie about Asia.|
As you can see, the box really was packed full, especially considering this was the "Mini" version of the box. You can get Mini (5-7 items), Original (15-20 items), or Family (25-30 items)!
Use the code rev10pa to get 10% off any JapanFunBox plan!
Special thanks to Japan Funbox for this review opportunity! All opinions are honest and our own.
