We are always reading in our house, so we are super excited to be a #PenguinKidsPartner and share a new book by @robbtopp, called Wink. ⁣
This hilarious and heart-wrenching story is about surviving middle-school with an unthinkable diagnosis, rare eye cancer. It’s a story of survival and finding the music, magic and laughter in life’s weirdness. ⁣
Iyla is about half way through it and can’t put it down. She loves it because it shows that no matter what your situation, you can make the best of it! I love the message it shares. I’m always telling the girls to embrace their “weird” because it’s what makes them unique. The world would be such a boring place if we were all the same. ⁣
If your middle-reader is looking for a new book, we highly recommend Wink from @PenguinKids. It’s available now! ⁣

“What if we capture the beauty of the whole world in ONE big, bold book? A book that will transport readers to countries across the globe, one bedtime story at a time?” AD: What if I told you that book exists? The Book of Cultures is a 120 page book featuring 30 illustrated stories with characters from different countries, alongside activity pages with puzzles and fun facts. With everything going on in the world, now is the time to teach your children how important it is to embrace diverse perspectives, be tolerant and compassionate and understand how to cooperate with people from all corners of the planet.

It’s funny the things that I miss most. Often when the girls achieved something big, we would take them to this little ice cream shop by our home for a treat. But we can’t do that now. Our state is under a stay home order through at least May. And while we don’t NEED to go places, I miss the freedom to be able to do so. I miss not having to disinfect every single grocery item before we can put it away. I miss impromptu trips to Target. ⁣
But... we haven’t left the house in almost three weeks. Because, eventually we will be able to get back to normal and drive wherever we want and spend money on things we probably don’t need. And our sacrifice for a month or two, or four, is so that our brave health workers and essential employees are not put in any additional danger. And to me, that’s worth the tiny inconvenience of being asked not to leave the house. ⁣
What do you miss most?⁣

Being forced to stay home for the next who knows how long, is not going to stop us from celebrating the seasons and the various holidays that keep my kids looking forward to traditions like homemade baked goods and fun little crafts. And although there seems to be a huge shortage of all-purpose flour, luckily we had enough in our pantry to create these delicious baked double chocolate chip donuts with fresh banana icing for Spring or Easter! ⁣

After spending this past week looking at our bills, we realized that our mobile bill is way too high. We need to be able to stay connected, but we don’t need to spend a fortune to do it. We just switched Super Dad over to @mintmobile. ⁣
There are so many reasons to love Mint Mobile (and not just because Ryan Reynolds is the owner… yes, that Ryan Reynolds)! Mint Mobile lets you keep your number. They offer nationwide coverage and their 4G LTE runs on the nation’s fastest, most advanced networks. The company is online only so they cut out the middlemen and can pass the savings onto us! ⁣

Allessimo Reality Puzzles are Fun for All Ages

If You Love It, Share It!

Our girls are 7, 10 and 14. Their likes and dislikes couldn’t be more different! We have one who loves to play with cars, one who loves to watch videos and another who spends most of her time in her room, perfecting her makeup skills. They really couldn’t be more different. Finding something that all three girls can enjoy doing together is rare but the one thing they do have in common is their love of art. That’s why we were excited to learn about Allessimo Reality Puzzles

Allessimo Reality Puzzles

Allessimo™ Reality Puzzles are more than just a toy. With each piece assembled the world begins to come alive. With 12 Unique Puzzles Allessimo has something to spark the imagination of any child – including boys and girls!

When the puzzles arrived, the girls instantly chose their favorite puzzle. They offer such a huge variety from animals to vehicles. There is an option for everyone, even for my very different girls!

Each reality puzzle paint kit comes with paint, a paint brush, a small piece of sandpaper, two sheets of wood with the puzzle pieces precut (all you do is pop out each piece) and instructions.

While the puzzle pieces are all numbered and clearly labeled on the instruction sheet themselves, our two younger girls needed Mom and Dad’s help. This quickly turned into a family project and gave us some quality time away from our screens. They are the perfect bonding experience for parents and kids

These puzzles are not your ordinary arts and crafts project either. Allessimo™ Reality Puzzles are known to:

  • Develop Creativity and Thinking Skills
  • Give Children an Early Taste of Success
  • Fill the Gap Left by the School System
  • Teach Patience and a Sense of Achievement

They “secretly” introduce tough subjects like math, mechanics and engineering into your child’s play time.  And, they develop their imagination and creativity while playing with a fun and rewarding toy.

Each puzzle targets the 3 critical building blocks of child development:

a) Critical Thinking
b) Patience
c) Creativity

When they were done building their puzzles, the girls got creative, painting their puzzles however they wanted to. The kit comes with all of the basic colors: white, green, blue, yellow, red and purple. The girls had the best time bringing their race car, unicorn and butterfly to life.

From beginning to end, we were impressed with the Allessimo™ Reality Puzzles. It was quiet, creative time in our home for just over an hour and when their puzzles were dry, they couldn’t wait to show our neighbors what they had created. Each puzzle is now proudly displayed on their shelves. They are looking forward to creating another puzzle this weekend!

Allessimo is ONLY sold online and can’t be found in stores. If your kids love to use their imagination and love to paint, don’t wait. They sell out quickly. Which puzzles will you choose?

Allessimo Reality Puzzles are fun for all ages! Using a STEM Learning approach, this screenfree activity brings out the artist in you.

    You may want to be careful about recommending products without first vetting the vendor. My mother saw an ad for this somewhere and ordered them for my children… after not getting them when we thought we would, I contacted the email listed and got a very vague answer. Then I looked at their facebook page and saw LOTS of reviews saying that people ordered and never got their product. A few people got them after very long delays. Seems sketchy

      Hi Lisa! I appreciate your message and I’m sorry that you’ve had a bad experience. I do recommend contacting the company directly via the phone number they’ve provided: 866-200-7573. Their hours are 5am-6pm PST (Monday-Friday) or you can send them an email at support@allessimo.com. That appears to be the best way to get into contact with them.
