When my son first started eating solids back in April, I introduced him to a variety of healthy flavors through homemade baby food that I lovingly prepared

If you are searching for interactive books and activity kits that focus on science and social studies, look no further than Smithsonian from Silver Dolphin. I received Smithsonian Sticker Creations: Under the Sea, Smithsonian Sticker Creations: Dinosaurs, Smithsonian Discover: Earth, Smithsonian Everything You Need to Know Fact Cards: Grades K-1, Smithsonian Everything You Need to Know Fact Cards: Grades 2-3, and Smithsonian Young Explorers: 50 States to review, and I rate all six products extremely highly. Although the sets are intended for slightly older kids, my preschooler daughter is already quite interested in each, and all six will continue to grow with her and my son. At only $107.70, the entire set of engaging and interactive books and activity kits is extremely reasonably priced. I will be using all six for years to come as part of my homeschool curriculum with both my children. I highly recommend the Smithsonian interactive books and activity kits.

My preschooler daughter absolutely loves her Build & Imagine Marine Rescue Center. Although Build & Imagine recommends the toy for children between the ages of 4 and 8, my daughter at three-and-a-half already spends hours building and rebuilding scenes with the magnetic playset. I love that the STEM toy aids in the development of early engineering skills like spatial reasoning, problem solving, and creativity as well as language skills. I also appreciate that the company uses ferrite block magnets, rather than small neodymium magnets, to ensure the highest level of safety. The highest praise that I can offer for the Build & Imagine Marine Rescue Center is that my daughter asks, and sometimes begs, to play with the building set all the time. If you are looking for a STEM toy that combines engineering with storytelling, look no further than Build & Imagine!

I love using paper plates as part of crafts with my daughter. For our homeschool preschool lesson on fish last spring, she and I made an easy but fun paper plate fish craft.

Does your child like blueberries or apples? Do you make your own baby food?
I exclusively breastfed both my kiddos for the first six months of life and then started introducing solid foods through homemade baby food that I cooked u

If you have a little Curious George fan who is working on basic preschool skills, I highly recommend Curious George Adventures in Learning, Pre-K. Compared to other similar activity books, this preschool workbook is an absolute bargain for the size and content. Preschoolers will love learning and practicing basic academic skills with the help of a curious little monkey.
Extremely positive review of the 'Curious George Adventures in Learning, Pre-K' workbook.

If you are a fan of all-in-two, I highly recommend checking out the charcoal bamboo all-in-two from HappyEndings Eco Diapers. At $13.99 each, the charcoal bamboo-lined diaper with snap-in charcoal bamboo insert is affordably priced. Recommended for babies between 8 and 35 pounds, the diaper fits both my 18 pound infant and 30 pound preschooler with plenty of room to grow on both. I really appreciate the pocket on the back of the diaper, which allows me to add extra inserts for maximum absorbency including overnight. The double leg gussets help contain moisture and messes. Overall, I rate the HappyEndings Eco Diapers charcoal bamboo all-in-two extremely highly and recommend this diaper to other fans of all-in-twos, all-in-ones, and/or pocket diapers.
Extremely positive review of the charcoal bamboo all-in-two cloth diaper from HappyEndings Eco Diapers.
