We won! (Green Kids Crafts giveaway)

So we won a Green Kids Crafts giveaway!  It was a $50 gift certificate to Box Play for KidsBox Play for Kids is a very green awesome company.  They are basically stickers that you use to change something (toilet paper roll, paper towel roll, mac and cheese box, tissue box, egg carton, etc) into something else (bowling pins, buildings, baseball bats, etc).  There are different sets that you can buy that include different stickers, or you can buy individual stickers.  They even have party sets!  :)  One of the sets that I bought is the 10 shark party set for a water play date that I am planning for the summer!

We had already heard of Box Play for Kids because we won a set from Box Play for Kids from a Stork Stack giveaway a couple of months ago but we haven't used that set yet. 

For $50 we got a TON of stuff!

We got a set of 3 bowling pins, a set of 3 buildings, 2 baseball bats, 10 sharks,
a binocular set and a super hero wrist band set!

Eli wanted to make the binoculars today.

Good thing we had 2 toilet paper rolls!

Citrus Lane April Box (3.5 year old boy)

Ok!  So this is our monthly subscription to Citrus Lane.  We have been subscribing to CL for a little less than a year.  It has been pretty great!  They have changed things lately and now go from 0-5!  Woot Woot!  They also don't have themes anymore so they just send random items.  This months box was outta the ballpark so we were really happy with it!
The box that Eli loves!  :)

This is the card that comes in the box explaining all the items.

First up is the Melissa and Doug Wooden Baby Zoo Animals Stamp Set.
We bought a family pass to the zoo so you KNOW Eli loved this!
Plus who doesn't love stamps?!?!

This is the Innobaby Keepin Fresh box.
It will be good for Eli's snack at school. :)

This is an oogaa silicone placemant. 
Eli likes the little animals on it... 
I think Jack might get more use out of this though!

And lastly...  Honest Co. shampoo and body wash!
This was what I was most excited about in this box!
I love the idea behind the Honest Co and can't wait to try this out!
 Over all this box was AWESOME!
I paid about $21.00 for the box (have a year subscription)
Box is worth $29.93
Eli's favorite thing is the stamp set...  Take a look!  :)

I am super excited about this box from Little Pnuts!  I won this box from City Mom Blogs Network awhile ago.  :)  I chose to get this box for Jack's age because Eli gets a monthly subscription to Citrus Lane.  I totally loved this box and would subscribe except for the little fact that I don't have a job and am enjoying being a stay at home mom for a while!  :)

Little Pnuts is a quarterly box that comes for ages 0-6!  Huge age range!  :)  You can pay $25 monthly or $240 annualy.  (On another note, this was started by the mom of a 26 weeker!  Awesome to support preemie mama's!)

Such a cute logo!
In each box they include a little pamphlet with info about the special delivery!

This is Tall Tom from Haba. It's a really cool toy! 
It's a stacking toy that is velcro. 
Lots of cool little extras like the crinkle sound, mirror and ring.
This is the Baby Car from Plan Toys.
Eli loves playin with this one with Jack.  :)

This is a Clutching Toy Little Friend.
Jack likes this one! He is very flexable
and useful for teething!

This is Jack's favorite item in the box! 
Indestructibles book Wiggle! March!
It is chewproof, rip proof and washable!

Over all this box was AWESOME!  I really wish we could afford a subscription, but alas we can't! 

Paid: FREE because I won it!

Barefoot Books

Since we subscribe to Citrus Lane and recieved a Barefoot Book a couple of months ago, we were sent a survey about the books.  After completing the survey I got a $15 coupon code for a free book!  Awesome!  Usually when you get these codes they don't include shipping...  But this one did!  So Eli scored a free book and I was able to use the code because I didn't have to pay shipping!  Woot woot!!
