Dylbug Easter Brunch

We recently had the wonderful opportunity to team up with Leslie Mingo, founder of Dylbug. Her line of adorable personalized plates, placemats, cutters and bowls will get your kids excited to eat all those yummy fruits and veggies.  
Easter is right around the corner and these sweet limited edition bunny plates could not be more perfect for your children's baskets.  
Our Easter brunch for littles was so much fun. I loved seeing each child's creativity flow and I really enjoyed watching them eat so many veggies. 
Snap peas were used for flower stems, spinach leaves for dresses and shredded broccoli for grass. They gobbled it all up and asked for more!  

I'm all for making mealtime fun and with these adorable dress up plates, your child's imagination and creativity will be ignited. Aren't those strawberry butterflies fun? And how dapper does Mr. Bunny look in his blueberry bowtie?!

Leslie found these cute trays at Michaels. They're paint trays but they work perfectly for keeping all your food organized. Genius! 

One of my favorite products that Dylbug offers are these dry erase placemats. The kids loved coloring and drawing on their little bunnies with markers. There is also a place where kids can practice their ABCs and 123s! Here is the front of the placemat, how sweet is that little bunny's face?

These sweet cutters are way too fun. They come in a heart dress pattern and star pants. Kids have a blast cutting out cute clothes to dress their bunnies. Who wouldn't want to eat a PB&J shaped like a dress? 

My daughter loved creating raspberries bows, strawberry and almond flowers and blueberry buttons on her bunny. I don't think we've ever had so much fun at mealtime! 

Be sure to check out all the fun products Dylbug offers to make mealtime awesome! You and your kids will have a wonderful time creating and dining together. 

Dylbug products are:

How to Create a Beautiful Boho Outdoor Space

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Cost Plus World Market. All opinions are my own.  
If you're looking to add a little boho flair to your outdoor space, look no further than Cost Plus World Market. Create a beautiful, eclectic space using interesting textures and colorful textiles. 
Fashion an exotic area using a mix and match color scheme, soft pillows and dreamy lighting.
Boho lighting is warm, flickering and indirect. Achieve this effect with hanging antique copper lanterns and sandalwood candles scattered about. Curl up in a cozy wicker chair under a macrame canopy with piles of funky pillows while reading a good book and sipping on tea out of a beautiful Moroccan tea glass. 
Your bohemian sanctuary will be relaxing, inviting and completely you!

I love shopping at my local store in Cottonwood Heights for beautiful boho inspiration, unique gifts and fabulous food from around the world.

National Geographic Kids Super Reader Program

We recently had the opportunity to review the  National Geographic Kids Super Readers Program.
The Super Readers program consists of non-fiction books that your kids can read and as they read, they can earn fun prizes! 

We all know reading is a good thing. It's critical in children's success in school and later in life and there are many advantages in reading with your child. Better communication skills, academic excellence, mastery of language, enhanced concentration and a stronger relationship with you.  This program can help feed your child's natural curiosity about the world and get them excited about reading. 

Here's how the program works:
  • .Visit the National Geographic Super Readers website HERE.
  •  Pick and download your free poster in the category of your child's reading level.
  •  Explore the books! There are so many interesting topics that your child will love. Everything from space to animals to history. They are sure to find many awesome topics to read.
  • Once you finished a book, you can cross its picture off the poster and return to the website to download a badge. 
  •  Earn prizes! The kids will love earning fun prizes like stickers, bookmarks and door hangers. This will definitely be a motivation for your kids to keep up with their reading. 
  • As you read more books, you can download more prizes!

Building a strong reader is important to us parents and I know finding books that piques our child's interest and fuels her excitement for nature, science and history is priceless. I love how engaged our daughter was as she read her favorite books to us.

We spent hours poring over these fascinating books. We especially loved the fun facts, silly puns and jokes that were sprinkled throughout the books.

Head over to National Geographic Super Readers website and begin the program! Your kids (and you!) will have a blast! 

Books can be found at all major bookstores as well as the National Geographic site and Amazon.
