Teaching games at home or on the go (Super Duper giveaway)

Our 4-year-old, Ryan, is so eager to learn! You know those comics about the kids going, “why? well… why? but, why?” True. Ryan’s favorite thing to say, actually, is “How do you know?” Haha–he really keeps us on our toes! I’ve talked plenty of times before about Super Duper Publications, the fun learning materials for kids, because they’re aaaamazing. You know you’ll get something great for your kids there.

We’re Stuck on You! (personalized gifts for kids)

I’m such a sucker for anything personalized with my kids’ names. I think personalized gifts for kids are just too cute and I also really think they have helped my kids learn!

It’s hilarious–at first he has no idea what’s going on, but then he has to run over it over and over and fall in it and run in it. Too cute! I’m not biased either, it’s really that great. So you should watch it 😉
