Felt Breakfast Set

This giveaway is now closed.

It's the Small Things sent us this felt breakfast set for our Celebration!

I'm a huge fan of It's the Small Things shop! They have so many unique items for kids. From travel size felt flannel boards and accessories to chef outfits for pretend play, you are sure to find something you love! They also have a Holiday Shop.

Scavenger Hunt Cards

This giveaway is now closed.

Kid-N Around Creations sent us this set of Scavenger Hunt Cards for the celebration. The set contains 8 well made, sturdy, 4x4 inch felt cards with embroidered pictures to hunt for. Our set has a bird, dog, stop sign, car, tree, flower, plane, and cat all tied together with a ribbon.

I am in love with this set of cards! When we are on a walk or in the car, B has fun hunting for these objects and flipping through the set as he finds them. I also appreciate how it has the word embroidered below the picture so that B can learn the words.  It is also perfect for baby N to play with too. It is a great vocabulary and sensory activity for her as she holds and feels the picture while hearing us say the name of the object. There are several types of these card sets available including a restaurant set and a grocery store set. Fun!

There are so many different fabulous items for kids offered at Kid-N Around Creations! A few of my personal favorites are the princess felt set, the beauty set, and the Nativity puppets (all pictured above). The quality and design of their products is fantastic and they are sure to bring hours of fun to your home!

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Felt Set

This giveaway is now closed.

I bought this Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Felt set ages ago from Edufelt and More. She has so many awesome handmade felt sets, it was hard to choose! My favorite part of this set is the tree. It is layered and very detailed down to the coconuts. Love it!

Button Art

This giveaway is now closed.
ALEX, the premier award-winning brand of creative toys and children's lifestyle products, has seven categories of toys: art, crafts, bath, style, play, ALEX Jr. for baby, and ALEX Little Hands for preschoolers.

The ALEX Jr. Collection for baby has unique toys that allow your baby to explore and encourage fine motor skills. I think the "I Can Cook" and the "Hug a Puzzle" are so neat!

The ALEX Little Hands Collection for preschoolers has learning toys and skill builders, games, and craft kits. A couple of my favorites are the "Learn to Dress Monkey" and the "Talk of the Farm".

ALEX sent us this Button Art kit for the Celebration! You choose from 10 pictures to complete by putting the buttons in their matching colored circle. It comes with 10 picture cards, 46 buttons, and a storage tray.  B had so much fun completing the pictures how they were supposed to be done and then again in his own creative way. Then, we also used the buttons and the tray to sort by color, make patterns, and play Guess the Letter or Number.



The pictures are vibrant and interesting which immediately got B's interested. He loved the 2 eyeball buttons that came in the kit. The chunky buttons are well made and can be manipulated easily, which makes this a perfect independent activity for a preschooler. The only thing that I would change would be to make the buttons primary colors instead of florescent. B has a hard time distinguishing between bright yellow and lime green and it might also be difficult for a child just learning the colors. The age on this Button Art kit is 2+ and I think it would make an awesome gift for a 2 year old! It provides the opportunity to work on colors, one to one correspondence, and fine motor skills.

Do you want to win a Button Art kit from ALEX?

Here's How to Enter: (You must be a follower/subscriber of The Activity Mom to enter.)

Visit ALEX's website and browse their selection of unique and awesome toys. Leave me a comment and tell me what toy you'd love to have for your child.

Sand Paper Numbers Set

This giveaway is now closed.

Polliwog Learning Products sent us this set of sandpaper numbers for our Celebration. I couldn't believe the quality of the product when I pulled it out of the box! Awesome! These 3"x5" cards are made from 1/8" thick birch and are very smooth. The sandpaper numbers are the perfect size and font for little fingers.
Sandpaper numbers are a great way to introduce numbers to your child! Feeling the number as they trace it with their finger helps build a tactile memory of the number which can be referred to and built upon later. I love how the numbers have a starting point so B knew where to put his finger to begin! We also had a great time making different numbers (shown below) and putting them in order. B asked me where the letters are, so we will be getting those next! =)

Smart Mom Necklace

This giveaway is now closed.


Smart Mom Jewelry sent us this jade, Donut Shaped Pendant for the celebration. It is a teething necklace! Can you believe it?! Right when I put it on, N grabbed it and started gumming it. She loves it!
It's made from the same material as teething toys and the string is long enough that it doesn't pull on your neck when your baby is playing with it.

There are so many style choices in these necklaces. They have a variety of solid colors and patterns. They also have coordinating bracelets and key chains too! Babies always go right for your jewelry and now with Smart Mom Jewelry, it is safe for them to play with and put in their mouth!

I'm so happy that it is soothing to baby N, but I'm even happier that it is a stylish accessory. It is a CUTE necklace! You can't tell that it is for teething at all, which makes it ok that I wore it to the store the other day without kids and got compliments on it! =)

ABC Quiet Book

This giveaway is now over. Thank you for entering!

Linda from Linda's Krafty Kreations sent us this Sing My ABCs Toddler Quiet Book for our Celebration! WE are absolutely in love with it!

The detail and quality of this soft book, made from felt, is amazing!
The letters are sewn on the page and the little objects come off and velcro back on again.  


The ABC objects are so detailed, down to the stitching and different textures. B has had so much fun taking the pieces off, mixing them up, and figuring out where they go.

Not only does it introduce letter sounds, it is also excellent for one to one correspondence as you sing the ABC song and point to each letter. The objects are great for vocabulary development, sensory exploration, and fine motor skills. We have used the objects for other ABC activities as well.


Today, Linda's Krafty Kreations is giving away a $15 Gift Certificate to use toward a quiet book or any of the other items in her Etsy store! She has SO many awesome items to choose from!

Here's how to Enter: (You must be a follower/subscriber of The Activity Mom to enter!)

RoomMates' Scroll Tree

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for entering!

RoomMates joined the Celebration and generously sent me this Scroll Tree for our playroom. It is the perfect decoration because it brightened up our space in a HUGE way and it sticks on which means there aren't any nails or staples that could come flying off if it was hit by a ball or another flying toy (come on...you know that happens at your house too!).


It arrived on two sheets with directions and I must be honest, I panicked! I thought "I don't think that I can put these pieces together to make that awesome tree!". But then B (my 3 year old helper for this project), pointed out that there were numbers on the page. It was coded by number which made it SO easy and allowed me to breathe a sigh of relief!  


This tree is so cute. The details are amazing from the leaves to the animals. It turned the wall of the playroom into a magical space. B pretends he is in the forest. The pieces were very easy to peel off and put up. The pieces stick perfectly, even when you have to take them off and readjust them. I have slightly textured walls which made me nervous but the vinyl stickers went on well and have stayed on.
