Watercolors: Testing Affiliate Links for Amazon

It is that time of year, fun arts and crafts with the kiddos! Recently we have been letting the kids experiment with watercolors, and it has been awesome. Melissa and Doug have been staples in our home ever since Zoey was a year old. The quality of the products that they produce is outstanding.  After all, they have been able to stand up to the overzealous play that my kids are known for.

Here is something that we have been using with Zoey and David as of late… and they love it. It seems weird to be posting about watercolors. Seriously, you can get these things for a dime a dozen. However, there is just something about these watercolors that make them stand out above all others. The fact that both our 5 year old (still not used to that) and our 3 year old love painting with them should say a lot. I think that more is said by the fact that these watercolor sets put up with our 5 and 3 year old.

Watercolor Painting

This link for the Melissa & Dough Paint With Water Activity Books Set: Farm, Ocean, and Safari are the ones that the kids are digging the most. The link is an affiliate link.  This means that if you purchase the item using the link, that Amazon will take a portion of your payment and send it to us to help us continue to grow this channel. Though this sounds like a rave review for these watercolors, it is not a paid endorsement. It is merely a chance for us to test our Amazon affiliate links. It is also a chance to share something awesome that we use with our kids.

More than watercolors.

Care to share some of the awesomeness that you have found to do with your kids? What awesome crafts have you found for your kids to do?

This started as a chance for me to test an affiliate link, and turned into a post…. #bloggerproblems

Puzzles and MOPS

It’s been a really busy season for me, which usually means blogging is the first thing to drop. Lately I am fighting the clock to get as much prepped with my MOPS childcare team as possible before I go into labor. The year starts Sept 15, and most of my job (childcare coordinator) happens before the first meeting. Today I am also 37 weeks pregnant. It’s Friday and I am just not feeling the whole preschool thing today. So this is our “lesson”, together with an Explode the Code workbook. I love these Melissa & Doug alphabet puzzles. They appeal on a few different learning levels, which is perfect for us right now. Best of all, I don’t have to explain anything if I don’t want to. These puzzles have held up really well in the desired amount of pieces, which is saying something with my active, destructive duo. I’m a fan.
