Copy Kids DVD Review and Giveaway! Get your kids to eat their fruit and veggies!
Praises from a Wife and Mommy!
Some day's I feel like I have the pickiest eater so I knew that if this worked I would be PRAISING!! :) This mama is praising and thrilled with the results so far. :) Before I share all the fun details let me tell you what Copy Kids is.
Copy-Kids is a media company producing video that encourages positive habits in young children, by watching and copying other kids. Copy-Kids unique content — DVD, online and TV — helps parents get their children hooked on healthy and positive habits.
The DVD showcases the following fruits and veggies: apples, avocado, banana, bell peppers, blueberries, broccoli, carrots, cucumber, orange, raspberries, strawberries, and Tomato's.
Our results: I started with the broccoli section as I was excited to see if my daughter would eat the veggies. Most of the time she usually will only eat carrots and spinach. I am so happy to announce that she ATE and ATE and then ATE some more. We replayed the broccoli video 7 TIMES!!! Yes, 7 Times!!! My daughter calls the video her "food game."
Day 2 we used bananas and strawberries and the results were awesome for this too. I knew both my kids love those two fruits but they had fun watching the video and eating there healthy snack!
Day 3 we tried red, green, orange, and yellow peppers. This is a veggie that my daughter would never even try and she ate a plate full! :) I did change it up a bit since I cut the peppers in to bite size pieces but on the video the kids were eating the peppers like apples and I thought how neat, next time I will not cut them and see how she does. My 11 month old tried and ate all of the fruits and veggies too. :) YAY! This is a must have DVD for all parents who struggle with picky eaters. :)
The next challenge I attempted was to test our results. This week she ate peppers and broccoli so I wanted to know what would happen if I served her them in a meal. Tonight I made stir fry and guess who ate her veggies... yep my daughter! OH YEAH! This mom is so thankful! :)
I absolutely loved how easy the menu was to pick what fruit you wanted to do. :)

MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray. They are a bit similar but yet different. Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1. Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2. Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid. Mix well. 3. Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4. Go have fun!!! This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week. I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general. I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry. I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes. :) Ready, Set, Go! Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
