Third Annual Super Stocking Stuffer Giveaway Hop

I received product and/or compensation in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own and the sponsors are responsible for prize fulfillment. 
Welcome to our Third Annual Super Stocking Stuffer Giveaway Hop! 
The Kids Did It and The Mommy Island are delighted to bring together a group of over 100 bloggers on this event in its third year! Just in time for the holidays, each giveaway on this event is offering you a chance to win fun prizes that may or may not fit into your stocking. I remember when I was a kid and I got up before the sun to run into our living room and check by my stocking to see my gifts. It was our tradition that my sister and I could get our stocking before mom and dad got up. I think that was their way of catching some extra sleep. Santa always left us one gift unwrapped by the stocking that we could play with during the early hours of the morning. Those are happy memories I share with my sister and now I look forward to creating those type of fun mornings for my children! 
Hop along all the events below and be sure to check out our fabulous Grand Prize sponsors as well.

Day to day life gets so busy. Working full time, kids in multiple extra-curricular activities, cleaning, cooking, life just happens.

I love the one-on-one time with them. We reconnect after a long week and catch up on what is going on in our daily lives. Yes, even at 8,6 and 2 I need to schedule the time to sit down one on one in their lives.

Sack Pals Where Plush Animal Fun Is In The Bag!

 I received the items in this post for review from Sackpals. All opinions are my own. The post may contain affiliate links. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
As a mom, it sometimes seems difficult to find unique gifts that are age appropriate but reading about Sackpals my interest was piqued. When we opened our boxes we were pleasantly surprised to find the Sackpals wrapped in tissue paper and not just a bunch of “stuffing”. It felt as though someone loving packed the box instead of just throwing it in the box. Read more about our experience with Sackpals plus enter for a chance to win one for your child below.

Squishy stretchy fun for the whole family!  I was excited to be sent the new Super Wubble Brite for our kids to try out, however, when it arrived I couldn't resist joining in on the fun. This Super Wubble Brite is so large it would be perfect for playing in large outdoor spaces, but it's been raining so we've been going a bit crazy inside. I had no idea, my husband and I would get such a kick out of playing along with the kids.

Extra Extra! Hero Dog Helps Crack The Case {Scholastic Giveaway}

I am hosting a giveaway in partnership with Scholastic! The Mommy Island is not responsible for prize fulfillment. 
With the Booper starting at a new school this year, I've taken on the role of the librarian as a volunteer. He's attending a small public school where due to funding cuts they have to rely on volunteers to run the library. I love being able to help his school in general, but I was actually thrilled to have the chance to work in the library. This year I'm also organizing the school's annual Scholastic Book Fair! To say I've been obsessed with getting good books in kids' hands the last few weeks is an understatement. I've had the privilege of scouting out new books that our library needs, so when I was sent Hero Dog I checked to make sure our library had a copy too. Hilde Cracks The Case is written by 10-year-old Hilde Lysiak and is the first in a series from Scholastic Branches. 

Perfect For College Students! Nextbook Flexx Giveaway

I've been blogging for a while now, and I've met so many great people through this online adventure. It's crazy that one of my best friends that I talk with every day I met through blogging. Amanda and I were fast friends. Although we're as different as night and day we connect through sarcasm and a similar sense of humor. My family and I live in Indiana, and Amanda is from Ohio, and as close as we are we've never visited the other's house, however, Amanda keeps trying to get me to move to Ohio so we can live closer to each other. Moving to Ohio so tempting, and here's why.

As the Booper gets older he's learning how to use more devices to play and learn. I love how technology can be used to even help him with reading. With all the great uses for technology I wonder how much access he has and how much others have to him. I want to know he's safe using the laptop, tablet, and even when he's accessing an app on our phones.

A Greener Clean With Charlie's Soap

I received the below-mentioned products in exchange for this post, all opinions are my own. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
I'm not sure if everyone feels this way, but my family seems to be dirt magnets especially the Booper. At seven years old it seems that the second he steps outside he has mud smeared on some part of his body. Our back door leads into our kitchen, and the kitchen seems to be our hub for all the activity in our house which means it's the grungiest room of the house. I like that feeling I get right after cleaning the kitchen, when I clean the kitchen I feel like our whole house is improved. Little Miss is always playing around my feet she's crawling, rolling, and pushing around trucks and choo-choo trains left from the Booper. When I clean our floors I want to know the cleaner I've used isn't leaving behind something more harmful than the dirt. We were excited to try out Charlie's Soap and put it to the test against our family's dirt!

I received this product for free from Smiley360 in exchange for my honest review. You can join Smiley360 here!
Toddlers are busy. Our little miss is constantly on the go finding new ways to play with toys and playing with most everything except her own toys. Ever notice how much fun a toddler can have with an empty box? She keeps me on my toes, and it's exciting to watch her grow. These days she learned to say all kinds of new words like, "eat", "cup" and "juice" her vocabulary seems to be exploding over night. Verbal or not, toddlers communicate what they want, and she loves drinking Mott's For Tots Juice.

Cicis Pizza Picnic Giveaway

As a kid, I loved going on a picnic. My cousin and I had so much fun packing a picnic basket and heading outside to eat our lunch during the summer. My mom was always great about letting us figure things out on our own, so sometimes we would end up trying to eat the silliest things together. No matter what strange foods we had packed for ourselves, my cousin and I always enjoyed eating our picnic outside. Cicis is wanting to help you enjoy a delicious meal that even the kids will enjoy. Check out their latest specials and enter for a fun pizza prize package below!

Smile! It's Veggie Time With Go & Grow Similac Food Pouches

This post was developed in partnership with Similac. All opinions are my own.
As a second time mom, I'm still amazed at how different Little Miss is from her brother. I figured having some experience under my belt at this whole "parenting" gig the second time around would be a breeze. If our Sassy Pants toddler has taught me anything it's that she is her own individual with her very own way of doing everything, including meal time. From the beginning, she has been a happy eater so getting her to eat has never been the problem. Having fast, nutritious options for her little hands is the key.
