My Busy Kit Review

Hi Neighbors,

I thought I'd stop by At the Fence for a few minutes to share a really neat company. It is called My Busy Kit. They have pre-made kits you can purchase to take different places when you travel with your children. "Activities for kids on the go." How many times on a trip have you heard, "Are we there yet?" or perhaps "I'm bored!". They have one for girls, one for boys, and even a special one for airports. Now as you head out the door to an appointment you can grab a busy kit and know you will have something on hand to entertain your child as you drive or perhaps while you are in a waiting room. Another great idea is to bring one of these when you go out to dinner with friends. How many times have you been out to eat and as the adults linger on to talk the children get bored and restless. With My Busy Kit you have activities with you to keep them busy. You can check out the kits here.

Here is how it all got started:

"Founders Lorraine Akemann and Annabel Heinemann met through the Redwood City (California) Mothers Club when their children were toddlers. My Busy Kit started from an idea Annabel had while traveling with her three children in Mexico. Her mother-in-law had packed them a clear bag full of interesting gadgets to help keep the children entertained. From the road, Annabel called Lorraine to announce, “I think we’ve got something here – let’s team up!” With five kids between them, they started finding and testing items that kids found interesting. Their goal was to assemble a kit that would keep kids o
ccupied, making travel a little easier on parents, and a lot of fun for kids.

For the first several months, Lorraine and Annabel sent out tester kits to everybody they knew. The results were very positive! They launched the product at a preschool fair in spring 2007, and two years and 2000 kits later they are still going strong!

Their combined 2008 travel itineraries included Alaska, Vermont, Oregon, Illinois, New York, Mexico and Nicaragua. Both families survived airport security lines, travel delays, and even third-world hospital visits, thanks to the contents packed in their kits."

My Busy Kits has a blog that you might like to visit. You can also follow them on Twitter at Keeps Me Smiling. My Busy Kits has offered my readers a 20% discount by using the code "mommyblogger" when ordering through My Busy Kit Google Checkout. So stop by and check out My Busy Kits.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
