Surprise Ride Review + Giveaway


I recently was given the opportunity to review Surprise Ride Subscription Service for free in exchange for my 100% honest and unbiased opinion on their product.


I love it when my kids are excited about receiving packages in the mail especially a box like this. A couple of weeks ago I received a package in the mail from a company called Surprise Ride and when I first heard about it I thought it had something to do with a bicycle or something with wheels on it. 

To my surprise it does not have to do with anything like that at all what Surprise Ride is a monthly subscription box for kids that sends kids ages 6-11 fun and educational hands-on activities that foster creativity and imagination!  The company was started by two sisters Donna and Rosy, and they have been working hard to create a lasting impact on the lives of children, beyond the latest toys or technologies.

When I opened up the box with my youngest daughter she was so excited to see all the goodies inside the box and wanted to start playing with everything inside but I had to tell her to wait a little bit because I had to take pictures first she was mad at me for making her wait.

She told me right away Mom I really like everything inside this box and it reminds me of my Papa. I asked her why she said that and she said well duh Mom thats because my Papa was 1/2 cherokee. You see Surprise Ride sends monthly boxes of materials to do fun hands-on projects. Boxes cover a surprise theme ranging from art and science to food and geography! This months box is called Pow Wow to teach and learn about the amazing traditions of the American Indians.

Here is what the box contained:
Instructions on how to make the projects along with facts about the subject too
 POP'D KERNS SNACK
Enjoy the most beloved American Indian Food, corn!

 NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN ACTIVITY BOOK
 Complete every page and learn something fun!
ANIMAL SLIDE WHISTLE
Slide the whistle head in and out while blowing to call your feathered friends!
 
 CREATE A TRIBAL DRUM
Drum, Drum skin, Tape Strips, Ribbons and assorted stickers.
 DANCE RATTLE
Create fun songs. Shake, clap against your hand or tap on objects. Doubles as a talking stick.
 WORRY STONE
This little stone holds magical powers.
 DESIGN A DREAM CATCHER
Willow Ring, Beads, Feather and String


 When my daughter was reading about what exactly a POW WOW was she thought it was so cool to find out about each different item was for and told me that the first thing she was gonna create is the Tribal Drum so that she could use it to play something for her Papa on the Anniversary of his passing. That brought me to tears.

Great Info On Finding A Family Dentist

The Importance of Finding a Family Dentist

Whether it be right or wrong, you are often judged by your appearance. This is true for children and adults. Sometimes, you are the one judging yourself. In other situations it could be your child's classmates or teacher, your co-workers, boss or your peers. As a parent, you can teach your child good dental health practices by setting an example for them.

Choosing a dentist who provides family services, is an ideal way to make dental care a family affair. Let your child accompany you to the dentist when you go in for a cleaning. Becoming familiar with a dentist office can make them more comfortable when it's their turn to sit in the dentist chair. Be consistent with tooth brushing and flossing routines at home. Habits learned early are habits that children tend to remain dedicated to as they get older.

Even when you are meticulous about your dental health, problems can arise. Being able to get the treatment you need from a dentist you are familiar with, makes everything less stressful for you. There's a lot to be said in favor of being prepared for the unexpected or for uncontrollable situations. While routine maintenance is all you may need at the moment, it's a good idea to learn more about the specialty services your dentist offers.

A smile may be the one feature that someone notices and remembers about you. A smile can exude confidence. When you sit down for an interview or meet someone for the first time, if you cover your mouth to hide unattractive or missing teeth, you may appear insecure. This could cause an interviewer to lose interest in you regardless of your qualifications. Good dental care can help you keep or acquire a winning smile that will cause others to form a positive opinion of you.

Children can be very unkind to their peers. Negative comments seem to increase once your child reaches the teenage years. Unattractive teeth immediately gives your teen's peers a target for poking fun and tossing out critical comments. Poor dental health can lead to other health problems for children and adults. Therefore, seeking treatments for dental related problems is imperative for one's physical health as well as for their self-image.









Dream Team Pets

 

Dream Team Pets is much more than a bedtime toy-it's an innovative kid's sleep aid that helps end the bedtime battles of trying to keep your child in bed. Developed with the help of a pediatrician, Dream Team Pets bedtime routine empowers kids as they reward their Pet with stickers and a certificate for a good night's sleep. If the child wakes up from a nightmare, there are no hard feelings because the responsibility is on their Pet, but when they successfully sleep in their own bed, the kids feel a sense of accomplishment as they reward their Dream Team Pet. What makes this unique is that the kids think they are training their Pet, but really they are sleep training themselves!

I really hate throwing away plastic things because I know what it does to our environment and I really try to teach my kids the value of money and how to recycle but there are certain items that cant be recycled like straws for one. My husband and kids love to use straws on a daily basis whether it be for juice, water or kids favorite chocolate milk. What I dont like about straws is how I feel like I am just throwing away money after they are done using the straw it goes straight into the trash because they are not completely washable nor are they recyclable.
