Picnic Essentials and Giveaways!

Whether it’s at the park, beach, river or forest, we love summer picnics!  Our kids jump at any chance to get away from home, even if it’s just for an hour or two.  The break in routine alleviates summer boredom and they get to run wild without wrecking the house, which makes mom (and therefore kids) happy.

The best part about picnics is that you don’t have to go very far to enjoy fresh air and a bit of nature.  Oh, and all that running around wears the kids out while we get to relax in the shade on a blanket!  With the right essentials, a picnic can be a quick and low-stress activity for the whole family to enjoy.

BPA-free Lunchboxes for Waste-free School Lunches

I can hardly believe that my little “green baby” will be entering kindergarten in a month! I thought I’d take a quick break from the cloth diapers and homemade baby food and talk about the latest in eco-friendly lunch boxes. While many of the options below are made from plastic, they are all BPA-free. I’m going to strive for waste-free school lunches, which means I’m looking for reusable containers to avoid buying juice boxes, individual tubs of applesauce, and other products with disposable packaging.

Now, Audrey is lucky enough to have a grandmother who bought her a Crocodile Creek Pocket Lunchbox ($13.66). These lunch boxes come in several adorable designs; my future kindergartner chose the princess.
