Nûby™ Tub Time Turtle™ & Splish Splash™ Bath Time Stacking Cups {Giveaway}

I always knew that I liked the Nûby™ brand but over the last few weeks I have had the opportunity to review a variety of their products and can honestly say I am in love. 
Using minimal packaging, I still feel like I am able to make an educated decision on whether or not one of their products is a good fit for my family. They use brilliant colors and shapes to attract little eyes and keep them engaged. Their products are offered in a variety of stores and online which makes it easy to find what you are looking for. They also do not sacrifice quality for cost. The products I reviewed were affordable but well made and safe for Parker. 
Here is a quick look back at the items I had the privileged of reviewing. 

Now it’s your turn to fall in love with Nûby™. One lucky reader will get to try out the Nûby™ Tub Time Turtle™ & Splish Splash™ Bath Time Stacking Cups for themselves!

Festive Fabric Banner

I know it is only the first of September but I am so anxious for fall. It is by far my favorite season with all of the beautiful colors, cool weather and upcoming family gatherings. I have been seeing these fabric scrap banners all over Pinterest and just loved them. Such an easy and colorful way to get in the holiday spirit.

I decided to head to Jo-Ann Fabrics to pick out some fabrics and make my own for fall. I realized that the fabric quarters are the perfect size and I had so many colors and patterns to choose from. I used a 15% coupon so each on ended up being $1.19. I already had some twin and scissors at home to this project totaled around $12.00.
I took each fabric quarter and made shallow cuts about two inches apart. You don’t need to be precis with this which is a nice relief!
Once you make the shallow cuts, just rip each strip the rest of the way to get the frayed look. If you like things cleaner, you can cut each stripe but they will still fray a little over time.

Our mantle was made for this piece! There were even 3 nails in the perfect place to hang it. I have to admit, I was a little bummed I didn’t have to take the hammer out again 🙂



Nûby™ Snack Keeper™ {Review}

Parker has liked snacks pretty much since we started him on solid food. With Rob gone, I try to keep on the go as much as possible to pass the time. This means daycare a few hours a week, trips to the gym, playdates and adventures shopping. 
I was so excited to give him the Nûby™ Snack Keeper™ and see how he would do with it. It’s a great way to include snack time, even on the go. 

The Snack Keeper™ is the perfect size for a toddler. The container can hold up to 9 oz of dry snacks. The perfect amount to satisfy a hungry belly but not enough to ruin their supper. 

The top comes off which makes it easy to fill and clean. It is also top shelf dishwasher safe.
The lid consists of several soft flaps which hold the snacks in if flipped upside down. While being soft and flexible enough to get inside for those yummy treats. The protective bottom will also prevent scratching on tabletops.

Best of all, it can be taken on the go with us. While I found a few pieces in his carseat, overall I was so impressed with how P did using his Snack Keeper™ for the first time and can’t wait to use it on future trips. Today it kept him occupied for 30 minutes on our way to a friends house!
