LEGO Stamping Salt Dough Valentines Craft

We've been trapped inside a lot this winter while we've been in Japan. It is SO cold here!!! Salt dough has saved us from extreme boredom or excessive screen time a few times. Salt dough, perhaps due to its squishy sensory nature, is something that can keep my little kids occupied. LEGO is another one of our go-to toys, so I thought it be fun to combine the two. Since it's just about Valentine's Day, I pulled out the heart shaped cookie cutters and went for the holiday theme!

Vegan Valentines Hummus and Hearts Healthy Snack


Valentine's Day is almost here and I had some fun coming up with some more cute and healthy holiday theme vegan food to serve my loves. These little hors d'oeuvres are made with plain and sun-dried tomato hummus, toasted bread, cherry or small Roma tomatoes, carrots (mine are yellow and the purple skin kind) and cilantro. These snacks are fun and easy to make with a sharp knife, a scissor, and a little patience.

Challenger Sports British Soccer Camp for American Kids and Promo Code

* This is a sponsored post written on behalf of British Soccer Camps.


Summer is just around the corner and we are already thinking about what activities and sports our kids can do to keep them happy, healthy, and active. One of the things we wanted to do with our son this year was a soccer camp. He did a toddler soccer class when he was a tiny little guy, but this year, he has been tearing it up on the playground whenever someone puts a ball in front of him. I think it's time for him to get a proper coaching from British Soccer Camps with locations throughout the US!

Vegan Mozzarella and Easy Mini-Pizza Recipe


We are all about the easy recipes in this house. When we were kids one of our favorite meals that I know was probably super easy for my mom to put together was English muffin pizzas. We also did them on bagels or bagel bites. Since the family has headed deeply into vegan-land we've tried to replicate some of these easy family favorites but store-bought vegan mozzarella can be expensive, hard-to-find, or simply non-existent in some areas! We were so happy to find this EASY and versatile plant based mozzarella cheese style recipe and it works great on our childhood fave.

Best Sippy Cup for smoothies

Put a lid on it - We have the BEST sippy cup for smoothies!


I make a smoothie almost every single day for my family. For my toddler, I have to pour it in a sippy cup and I've done this for her and my son when he was a baby. We keep evolving which cup or top we use. This year, we are using these silicone Boon Snug Sippy Lids because they keep the drink in, are safe, eco-friendly, easy to clean, easy to drink out of and don't leak. We think they make the best sippy cup lids for smoothies!

Back from the US Random Mini-Vegan Food Haul

* If you make a purchase after clicking on one of the links in this post I may receive a commission.


So the hubs went back to the States for a week and he brought us back some goodies!!! I had this whole long list in my head of things I wanted to ask for but when it came down to it, nothing seemed all that important and as usual, time went by so quickly! I asked for Better Than Boullion which if you've checked out our recipes page, you will see why (we LOVE that stuff!!!) and toothpaste. I just didn't want to be bothered trying to get used to a Japanese brand of natural toothpaste. This is why I was pleasantly surprised at the fun things my hubs brought or us in his mini-haul. We have video and can explain each thing...
