Green Giant Seasoned Steamers Gift Pack Giveaway - Ended

I love steam-in-the-bag vegetables because they are so easy to prepare for any meal.  We need more vegetables and convenience helps.  Green Giant® now has Seasoned Steamers.

  • Available in six different varieties, Green Giant Seasoned Steamers™ are one of the first sauce-free seasoned vegetables to bring unique chef-inspired seasonings and premium cut vegetable blends to your dining room table
  • These tasty Seasoned Steamers are bound to spice up any meal with six varieties including: Mediterranean Blend, Tuscan Seasoned Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts with Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper, Honey Roasted Sweet Corn, Honey Dijon Carrots and Backyard Grilled Potatoes

 We tried the Backyard Grilled Potatoes.  They are seasoned potatoes with onions and peppers.  The onions and peppers are not overpowering and are chopped up pretty small.  My kids didn't care for them, but they are extremely picky.  They smelled a little like they were burnt when they were cooking, so I'm not sure if our microwave settings were correct.  They tasted okay.

There isn't a lot in a bag, but enough for a small side.  If you have a large family, then you may want to get two bags.

I would like to try the honey roasted sweet corn.  I was torn between trying corn and potatoes (my favorites).

Live Butterfly Garden 45% off on Amazon

Insect Lore Live Butterfly Garden
Amazon has this Live Butterfly Garden for $13.62 and is eligible for Free Shipping with orders over $25. I'm not sure how long the price will last though.

I know our 2nd grade did these one year. Not all of the butterflies made it, but it was definitely a lesson that the children will remember. They absolutely loved releasing the butterflies when they were ready.  I'm thinking this would be a great educational gift for my kids.  :)

National Geographic Super Reader Review and Giveaway Ended

Have you heard of the National Geographic Super Readers?  

National Geographic Super Readers an incentive program that encourages children to read non fiction books. You can download a poster with pictures of the books they can read.  After reading a book, the child crosses it off on the poster and earns a sticker.  Children can earn rewards for reading a certain number of books such as bookmarks, magnets, and T-shirts.  All items are downloadable for free on the National Geographic website.  You would just need the material to create them such as iron-on paper and t-shirt, sticker paper, etc.  

We had the opportunity to try it out through Moms Meet.  It is perfect for teachers and parents to encourage students to read.  At my school, our teachers are always trying to encourage students to read more non-fiction books and this program is perfect for the classroom.  I will definitely be sharing it with them.

My 5 year old is a beginning reader and she loved the program.  We read the Sharks book together (it was a level 2 book) and she earned a sticker.   She preferred to put the sticker on her poster instead of crossing out the book. I'll be looking for some of the early level National Geographic Super Readers for her.  I'm thinking 1-2 would be great in her stocking for Christmas.
My daughter loves reading interesting facts.  We love National Geographic Kids!
We learned so much about Sharks which was perfect because we had a trip planned for SeaWorld later in the day. My kids were able to see some of the Sharks that we read about. 

Bubby checking out the Shark Jaw at SeaWorld.
I love that the books are organized by levels on the posters, so if you go in order, the difficulty level goes up.  The books are perfect for different interest too.  My daughter really wants to read Ponies, Butterflies, and Cats and Dogs.  My son would love the books Trains, Dinosaurs, and Planes.

I highly recommend all teachers, home schoolers, and Moms to check out the National Geographic Super Readers website and their Facebook Page.

Three lucky readers will win a National Geographic Super Reader Activity Kit.  Enter below to win!
