Back from Vacation with a Giveaway!!

We are back from a wonderful beach vacation! We enjoyed tons of fun outside with of course a little bit of 'school' mixed in!

 Ella loved throwing rocks into the creek at our vacation rental.

Ryan love wading in it (even though it was freezing)!

We had a few kayak adventures!

We enjoyed gorgeous coastal hikes. Ryan hiked over 4 miles (with promises of smores curtailing the whining:)

OK, enough with the pictures- I promised a GIVEAWAY!!

One afternoon we enjoyed some down time with EcoKids Finger Paints compliments of EcoMom.
I love that these paints are made with natural ingredients including fruits, plants and vegetables. The paints come in powder form. It was great to mix up just enough for one session and have lots left for many more hours of painting. I was excited about the beautiful, vibrant colors when I added water.

The colors ended up being  more muted when applied to paper. The earthy tones were perfect for Ryan to paint a scene from our kayaking trip that day, and for Ella to get as much purple paint as possible on a single sheet of paper. Ryan did a couple of thick puddles and they dried with a neat texture that made me think they will be great for dinosaur scenes in our upcoming dino unit.

As with all of my product reviews. These are my own opinions and I was not compensated for this review.


  1. Sounds like a neat product! Count me in!

    Isn't amazing how the bath can be a few degrees too cold to get into but little ones have no problem wading into a frigid creek?

  2. I will return the taken package to your porch! jk. I follow on FB and I am a google friend.
