School is back in session and there is absolutely nothing more fun than watching your kids learn and grow in their school career. Of course, having the tools to help with that is the biggest thing. I have found over the years that there are so many things that work excellently and then there are things that you really don’t need.
Above are a few things we recently got the chance to try out and have really helped not only Adylee with her school journey but also Giovanni and Gracelyn.
Mederma Scar Cream
I don’t know about you but littles are always getting cuts and scrapes. They’re kids and that’s definitely part of childhood! I still have a few scars from my childhood that I can tell you about. But, with the help of the Mederma Scar Cream, I can help aide in reducing the appearance of those scars. By using the scar cream once the scar has closed, I can help the process. Mederma is kid-friendly and helps penetrate below the surface of the scar to lock in moisture, renew the cells and help with collagen production.
Use daily for 8 weeks for fairly new scars or 3-6 months for already developed scars. Perfect for this back to school time where the kids are just bound to come home with scrapes from the playground!
I can’t tell you how much of a difference leaving a special note in your child’s lunchbox can change their entire day. Adylee has always loved the little notes that I would leave her and as she’s getting older, they become part of her everyday routine. She tells me all the time in the morning “not to forget her note.”
Well, the same goes for Sharona the creator behind the company MyWish4U. She would leave little lunchbox notes for her daughter and eventually she created this amazing company that you can now find in Target! Every mom’s favorite store! There are 101 colorful, unique and single-sided lunch box notes in each of the three packs that we received. They are both educational and fun having both facts and jokes together on one page. Plus, they are insanely inexpensive (only $4.99) and can really brighten your child’s day.

2. Brainteasers & Giggles – Clever brainteasers and silly jokes make this a favorite with the
kids! Brainteasers will help them learn to reason and think differently. The giggles will just make them laugh and laugh!
3. Cool Facts & Jokes- Cool and fascinating facts to learn about our world and funny jokes to make them laugh, too!
STEM Like A Girl
Girls can be anything they want to be and that includes scientists! With STEM Like A Girl, you get 15 do-it-yourself activities that you can do alone or with a friend! Each experiment and project provides reinforcement for Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM). In the book, 35 diverse girls share their stories on why science matters to them and how they have gained the confidence through STEM.
Below is an endorsement from Strong Is the New Pretty author, Kate T. Parker:
“It’s so important for our girls to know they’re smart, capable and creative because THEY ARE. STEM Like a Girl helps our girls to see the world around them as accessible andwithin reach through inspiring the creativity that is already there.”
Knowing that this book can help Adylee embrace the things she loves the most, Science and Math, I applaud the author for creating this book so girls can embrace that side of themselves with pride and honor because they should absolutely be proud!
These are just a few things that have really helped us get back into the groove with scool!
School may have just started but these are things that we are so proud to implement into our daily routine and also, keep going alive once school is done.
