How To Keep A Toddler Entertained On A Plane

Hi everyone! This post is a little bit different from my normal beauty-type posts, but I want to try and incorporate more lifestyle posts like this into my blog.

We took our 2 1/2 year old on her first airplane ride recently, and I thought it would be fun to show you all what I packed for her to keep her entertained on the plane. I know that this post will appeal to my many mommy readers out there, but even if you aren’t a mom, maybe you can share these ideas with moms that you know!


Backpack – A backpack is good to have for trips because they are able to just carry it on their back so their hands are free. This one is from Gymboree and has a cute smiling flower on the front.
iPad and Headphones – I have a bunch of educational games on the iPad that Allie loves to play. I also got her these headphones that are little and comfortable for her head. You can also download music or movies that they can watch on the plane.
Notebook, Crayons, Stickers – This is Allie’s little notebook that she likes to color and put stickers in. This can keep her entertained for hours. She loves Dora and Disney Princess, so I brought those stickers along.
Baby Wipes and Tissues – Any mom knows that you ALWAYS need these. Tissues for blowing little noses and baby wipes for cleaning up little faces and sticky hands!
Snacks – I brought along some little snacks for her in case she got hungry on the plane. I made sure to include these little suckers to help her ears to pop, and I brought some fruit snacks, raisins, a squeezie, and some graham cookies.

I was so proud of how well she did on the plane. We got lots of compliments about what a well-behaved child we had! That’s a great feeling.

Let me know if you have any other suggestions for what to pack for an airplane ride!

I hope you guys liked this post; thanks for reading!

Future Beauty Blogger!

Hey guys! I just had to share this cute photo with you. I walked into my bedroom and saw that my 2-year old had lined up some lip glosses and was using her Disney Princess pretend camera to take a photo. When I asked her what she was doing, she said, “I’m just bloggin’ Mama! This doesn’t look cute, I need to organize these.”
It was seriously the funniest thing ever! I didn’t even think she ever noticed me always taking pictures of products. Maybe she will have a beauty blog of her own one day!

Hope y’all are having a good day!

Shark Week Craft: Shark Hat!

20130807-211217.jpgDUN NA DUN NA
Hi Guys! In honor of SHARK WEEK, I have a fun craft that you can do with your kids if you love sharks! This is a cool shark hat that you can wear while watching some sweet sharks on TV!
What You Need:


-1 large gray posterboard
-1 small white posterboard
-Black marker
1. Take your gray poster board and fold it in half. Cut it down the middle. Set one of the pieces aside. Take the remaining piece and fold that one in half.


Fold it in half again.

2. Open it up and fold the top corners down to make a triangle shape. Make sure you are folding on the fold, and that the bottom is open.


3. Fold the bottom section up, and then flip it over and do the same on the back.


4. Tuck the front corner over to the back, and bring the back corners to the front. Tape those corners down and you will have a triangle shaped hat.





5. Set the hat aside. Take the remaining piece of poster board and fold it in half. Draw your shark body and cut it out. You will have 2 identical shark bodies.




6. Put glue all over the first shark body. Put glue only on the top of the other shark. Stick the hat to the top of the first shark body, and then stick the other shark body on top of it.



7. Now we need some teeth for our shark! Take the white posterboard and fold it in half, and then fold it in half again.




8. Cut triangles out to make teeth for the shark. Make sure you are cutting on the fold.



9. Put two strips of tape on one row of teeth, and tape it inside the shark’s mouth on one side. Take the other strip and tape it inside on the opposite side.




10. Now our shark needs eyes! Take some white paper and cut two circles, and draw two black dots on the circles to make eyes. Glue to the shark head.


11. And there you have it! A finished shark! This one is a little fat!

12. Wear your shark hat with pride.

All-Natural Hand Sanitizer Wipes for Kids (and adults!)

Hi Guys! I wanted to make a post about these new Hand Sanitizer Wipes that I recently found. If you are a mom, you need these in your life! If you are not a mom, you can still use these, and you will love them! These are the BabyGanics Hand Sanitizing Wipes.


I recently potty-trained my daughter, and we are now using public restrooms when we are out and about. She is not tall enough to reach the sinks yet to wash her hands, and she is really heavy, so it is hard to hold her up to do it. I was on the hunt for some type of natural hand sanitizer. I wanted something that was organic, and that didn’t contain alcohol, or harmful chemicals. I came across these at Babies R Us, and I know they are also sold on Amazon. I paid $8.99 for a box of 20 individually packed wipes.



These wipes:

-Alcohol Free (so they feel moisturizing instead of drying on the hands)
-Kill 99.9% of germs
-Have a light citrus scent
-Not tested on animals
-great for travel, purse, diaper bag, stroller, car

I am really glad that I found these, and I have been using them on my hands as well. I like that they are in a wipe form, so that I don’t have to worry about anything spilling in my bag.

Hope you guys liked this post, have a great day! 🙂
