–     Ivy Kids is one of my four-year-old daughters all time favorite boxes.  As a working mom, I love coming home to these boxes on the weekend and having amazing, educational crafts and lessons that B actually loves to do.  If you have not heard of Ivy Kids here is their description:

Here are some of the items we completed this weekend.  I love how my husband gets involved as well.

This month subscribers received a hard cover classic: The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper.

–     I was so happy this was a hard cover book, much more durable with little ones.

–     Anytime there is paint, this little lovely is beyond happy.  I did put cardboard down, but by the time we were done, she and mommy both needed a bath.

Our finished train, Hint: Do not have this dry on a napkin. As you can see, I am still peeling tissue paper off.

–     This picture sheet is very durable and I was hoping to have B color it with crayons, and then put her picture at the top and frame it.  She decided to grab the train paint and finger paint instead of color.  I did not stop her, she was having so much fun.  I still might go ahead and get the picture of her to glue on and hang it in her room.

–     Daddy and B talked about shapes and colors and put this lovely foam shape train together.  B really makes pictures unique, lol.

–     A surprised me late last night (he is not feeling so hot).  He is 2 and absolutely loved this book, more than his sister.  He flipped those pages for a good hour, back and forth and then this morning began the process over again.

–     I love Ivy Kids Kits and have been a believer since they began this service.  B’s grandmother pays for her subscription and I am so grateful.  I do not get compensated for this review, I just really believe in the product and the quality that comes out of the subscription.
