Happy Friday, y’all!!
Do you ever have those weeks where you feel like you’re so busy and have SO much to do? This week has been one of those for me. Like there is just simply not enough time in the day lately.
Many of you may know this but some of you probably don’t and you may or may not think I’m completely crazy when I tell you. We don’t and have never had a babysitter for Corbin. I know! I need to get on the babysitter train, and it becomes even more evident when I have a list a mile long and he’s over my shenanigans. I just haven’t ever really found anyone I completely trust, and having my parents or Conrad’s Nana close by, we really haven’t found a need to have someone consistently. Until, he throws a fit in the aisle at Target, then I say to myself, we NEED to find a sitter. Haha! However, he does go to school 3 days a week so I really do my best to get all of my errands out of the way during those times, yet it doesn’t always get finished. I’ve had mom guilt about him sitting in the car so long and the amount of screen time he takes in, and then the energy we have to get out once home. He’s usually really good, but I’ve just felt bad that he doesn’t have something fun to do on these jaunts. Until now!
Recently, a company reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in trying out one of their travel trays. We’ve been trying it out all week and Corbin LOVES it! Usually he is one of those that will play with something for a short time and move on, but each day when we get in the car, he’s asked for his tray to draw or color while we’re on the go. I am highly impressed by his consistency and love the tray myself. It is such a great way to organize and has compartments in several areas for storing markers, crayons, paper to color on, and is even sturdy enough for an iPad or Kindle. If you know me, you know I love to stay organized and this allows organization effortlessly. Corbin has even had a snack on his tray and it holds up great, is super sturdy, plus I don’t have to worry about a mess in his car seat after. I just wipe down the tray and we’re good to go. It has been so convenient and is such a cool little contraption. It can buckle around the seat if you have a longer trip planned, so it stays in place, includes a cup holder and the markers included are dry-erase, so mess free. You can also collapse the tray when finished to store and it has velcro to create more of a table if you so choose. The tray also comes with Easy Xplorer paper that is learning friendly. There are letters and numbers to trace, a castle maze, a traceable dragon and unicorn. It will keep your kiddos entertained on those long road trips and even just around town on those busy days.
We are genuinely loving the Easy Xplorer tray and I think it would make an amazing gift with the holidays coming up. Especially since it’s also at a great price point as well, under $20. I’m considering them for my niece and nephews for Christmas, as I think they would all enjoy them so much! It just makes traveling easier, keeps your children occupied with something productive and keeps you organized with all of their colors and other materials they may need.
I think you are all going to love these as well, so I’ve added the link here so you can check them out! So happy to have been given the opportunity to try this tray out, as its such a hit and I appreciate Lucy from Easy Xplorer for allowing us to use and review her amazing product!
Have a great weekend!!!
