PinyPon Party (vlog)

Guess what we did? Here are a few hints….

We hosted a Mommy Party! Sponsored by PinyPon and it was a blast! Watch the clip to learn more (oh, and just to warn you when I recorded this I was extremely tired so, enjoy!).

Here are a few pics of the masterpieces the girls made…

The girls had so much fun playing with the PinyPons. Each guest went home with their very own PinyPon, PinyPon and Nenuco coupons to give their parents, Fall Fashion show certificate of participation, and any jewelry that wasn’t eaten. And two lucky winners went home with an additional treat! We had a raffle and pulled two girls names, one for the Nenuco baby and one for the PinyPon Caravan (we also received each of these for hosting, talk about awesome!). It was a fabulous night, thank you MommyParties, PinyPon, and Nenuco!

For all you out there who are looking for the perfect Christmas gift for a little girl between 3 and 7 yrs old this is it! The Nenuco Baby was also a huge hit with our toddler, she is excited to start using the potty just like her Nenuco baby!

Nature Scavenger Hunt & Kashi Banana Chocolate Chip Soft n’ Chewy Bars Review

Since we have a long weekend thanks to Labor Day we decided to make the most of it and spend as much time together as a family as possible. Today we visited our local park, we went on a Nature Scavenger Hunt, and enjoyed delicious Kashi soft n’ chewy bars.

I came across an awesome blog, How to Nest For Less, it has so many fabulous ideas for the home, for kids’ arts & craft projects, and much more. I highly recommend this blog but I must warn you it will suck you in.  So grab refreshment and get comfortable.

While perusing How to Nest For Less I came across this wonderful Nature Scavenger Hunt. I adore this Nature Scavenger hunt because it contains items that are easy to locate practically anywhere outside. It is also perfect for the age range of my kiddos (2-6 years old).  I like the fact that it only contains a dozen items to locate as opposed to others that have a slew of items. Lastly I like that it includes color, shape, and touch categories too!

So prior to leaving for the park I printed off the Scavenger Hunts and the name tags for the children’s bags. To print off Scavenger Hunt click here.

Included in their bags were, one Kashi Banana Chocolate Chip soft n’ chewy bar as well as a marker to cross off items as they locate them.

We had such a wonderful time on the Nature Scavenger hunt. We looked high and low to locate all the items on the list. The kiddos even enjoyed getting a closer look with their magnifying glass.


Then it was snack time. And I must say, I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious the Kashi Banana Chocolate Chip soft n’ chewy bar was, it was… well, soft, chewy and yummy! In fact, our toddler asked for more and our first grader asked me if she could have them in her school lunches, please!

Thank you Kashi you have successfully satisfied our toddler’s, our picky eater’s needs. You have done the impossible!

I adored the taste of the bar, it was like a warm, comforting embrace on a cool rainy fall morning. It reminded me of childhood, when my mom would bake fresh banana bread, it was more than a food, it took me back to a memory, it was an experience. As a mom I am a huge fan of Kashi Banana Chocolate Chip soft n’ chewy bars because of the nutritional content. The Kashi Banana Chocolate Chip soft n’ chewy bars include:

  • ½ serving of fruit (from apples and bananas)
  • ½ serving vegetable (from pumpkin)
  • 7 whole grains
  • 4 grams of fiber
  • Naturally Sweetened


 I feel like I am a good mother when I give my children Kashi.

 Another reason why I, as a mom, am a proud supporter of Kashi foods….read on…the following is taken from Kashi website….

Today, only 1% of U.S. cropland is organic and around 70% of packaged foods contain GMOs (genetically modified organisms). At Kashi, we want to do our part in creating a more balanced food system. We’re still small at heart, but big enough now to make a meaningful impact.

Kashi’s Non-GMO Project Verified Product Commitment.

Our commitment: By the end of 2015 over half our food will be Non-GMO Project Verified.* But we won’t stop there. We’ll continue to increase the use of organic and Non-GMO ingredients where possible while making sure to continue to provide the positive nutrition you expect from us.*based on pounds

 Why 2015? There simply aren’t enough non-GMO and organic ingredients, and it takes time to partner with farmers to convert conventional farms. Once we obtain these ingredients, we need to make sure the nutrition and taste of the food is consistent with the high quality you expect from us.

We had such a wonderful afternoon in the park together as a family. We enjoyed the outdoors, the sounds, colors, and creatures of nature; they paired nicely with our delicious Kashi snack experience.

So, how are you spending your long weekend?  Have you ever tried any Kashi brand foods? Do you have a favorite Kashi food/product?
