Quarantine Favorites: Part 1

If you would have told me a month ago, that I’d be writing a blog post about my favorite things during a QUARANTINE, I would have thought you were nuts! Even me, a worrier, sometimes referred to as “chicken little”, did not see this coming!

Through it all, we have stayed busy at home. Luckily, I have realized I was randomly prepared for all of this (not sure if that’s something I should be admitting :-)). I thought I’d take some time to share some of our favorites. This is part 1 of the post which features kids and toys items. Coming soon: Mom’s favorites!!!

Kids and Toys

These have been a huge hit. They can be built into so many cool configurations. They are interesting enough to hold my 5 year old’s attention, but easy enough to use that my 3 year old and 18 month old have fun with them. Definitely worth checking out!


We had so much fun with this activity the other day. We use these little animals for so many activities but a HUGE hit was lining the animals up on painters tape. Such an easy activity and fun for these kids.

Our Nugget, might be our most used toy in the house, so I didn’t mind spending more money on upgrading our set up. I had seen multiple people raving about a balance beam, this one has been a great addition. These stepping stones are one of the best purchases I’ve made since buying our Nugget. I love the variety in sizes, perfect for working on those gross motor skills, my kids do desperately need to work on 🙂

These snack containers are life! I’ve been using these in the car for a while. I will fill with snacks and give to the kids, it keeps them busy and not asking for snacks the WHOLE time we drive to Chicago. So day 1 of quarantine, I found myself sick of being asked for snacks about 32 seconds into the day. So, I filled these with snacks and they are allowed to eat as much as they want but I will NOT refill the junk but I will refill the fruits and veggies.


Go ahead and order these items, all in stock currently!!
