What are your favorite things for kids?

I always love when people share their favorite things. I love recommendations of tasty recipes, places to shop online, toys and games, and so on. The options are endless, which is a good thing, but sometimes I feel lost and don’t know where to begin.  To help others like me who appreciate sharing the things we like, I decided to share three of my favorite things for kids (and me, too).

My Top Three Favorite Things for Kids

My Favorite Book: I Love You, Stinky Face

Let me admit that I am a super sentimental one. I can’t make my way through Love You Forever without tears spilling over. This is another one that gets me. It is so sweet! It’s all about a mother’s unconditional love. The child questions whether his mama would love him if he was someone different than who he really is, and she continues to reassure him that she’d love him so much no matter what. I love this tender and funny book so much, I have bought copies for some of my friends to read with their children.

My Favorite Game: Shelby’s Snack Shack

This game is good for up to four players. It helps develop number and counting skills and works on fine motor skills at the same time. To play the game, a player spins the spinner to determine his or her play and uses the Shelby dog squeezer to pick up the bones and put them in the bowl. The object of the game is to collect the most bones. My youngest started playing – and completely understood the game – at age 3. It’s really cute and fun! We have another game that’s basically the same thing called The Sneaky Snacky Squirrel, where you help the squirrel gather acorns.

My Favorite Snack: Quinn microwave popcorn

I love Quinn popcorn in the butter and sea salt flavor and so do my kids! It’s not sold everywhere, but I have luck finding it at Target. Regular microwave popcorn is delicious, of course, but it’s full of who knows what. Quinn popcorn has no chemical or plastic coating, is non-GMO with no hydrogenated oil, is gluten free, has no preservatives, and there’s no added diacetyl. My kids love popcorn as much as everyone else’s, so I like being able to give them something I know tastes good but isn’t chock full of not-so-healthy additives.

Hope you give these a try! Share your favorite things in the comments below!
