Bitty Play: @DuneCraft Super Slippery Bouncy Balls

‘Just add water’ is the perfect instructions for budding preschooler scientists. Dunecraft’s Balls start out as little hard bits, then miraculously grow into rainbow, glow in the dark or clear balls when you put them in water. My son loved watching the balls get bigger and then bouncing and exploding them.


We also had a simplified discussion on osmosis while playing. The balls grow nicely in a clear jar but you will not want to be deprived of the sensory experience of handling them. Of course that can make for a messy clean up. If you can wait until they dry though, they vacuum up easily.


You have seen these at florists before. Now your kids can enjoy them too over and over again as they shrink and dry and are put back in water to grow again. Watch out that your little guy doesn’t try eating them as they do look very candy like.


These miniature marbles have a lot more to them than meets the eye. Just add water and let the fun begin as the balls expand hundreds of times in size! The warmer the water, the faster they grow! Grow a variety of amazing balls, balls that glow, balls that looks like marbles and much more! They slip, slide, bounce, and break! Let them dry out and store them in a sealed bag to easily reuse for hours of ball bouncing fun!
The Dunecraft toys retail for $4.99 and is great for weekend fun to keep the little ones busy but also learn a bit about science!

Looking forward to a warm day to try DuneCraft’s Slick Sand outside.

Moms love Dabbawalla bags for their kids because of its light weight and divided pockets inside the backpack.  Kids love it because of the colors and cute characters.  The straps are very practical because it is on the inside of the backpack and easy to adjust.  The fabric is so soft and very gentle on the little one’s skin (to prevent chafing). The best bag for kids available on the market hands down because it is easy to carry and not heavy at all!

3 Ways to Show your iPad Love

My iPad goes everywhere with me and I am always on the hunt for accessories and cases that can better improve my work flow. The Snugg is a great professional looking case especially for meetings!  It is for the iPad 2 and has all the important cut out sections for your volume, camera and battery charger.

One of the really cool features is the integrated stand. It is good for Skype calls, Facetime and watching movies! If you like to play games, browse Pinterest or check Instagram, you can loop your stylus into the build in nook for it.

Another really important aspect of the Snugg case is the Sleep/Wake function. It is the magnetized edge that helps you preserve battery life and lets your iPad sleep when it is closed. When the iPad is closed, there is a fashionable handstrap for easy holding!

This case is available for $29 on

A Glow in the Dark beaded charging USB! Now you will never mix up which cord is yours. This pretty pastel cord is a nice change from a dirty white one right? You can get this cord and other colors on for $12.99!

The iPad gets sooooo dirty!  From my grubby fingers using it as a cookbook and also just regular finger grease. I never knew how clean my iPad could be before I used these JMK cloths!  I even use it in my kitchen, TV and everything else!  I am obsessed. The Microfiber clings on to your fingers and it feels prickly.  If you knew $8 could change your life would you do it? You can grab these on Amazon. You will love it!
