We love our fans and want to pay it forward

That's why Emptynester Reviews, Couponing 4 You, Powered by Mom, Mom Does Reviews, andMommy & Baby Reviews & Giveaways decided to put together the Pay It Forward for Back to School Blog Hop!

We contacted companies and people we know and have secured some wonderful prizes for the GRAND PRIZE for all of you. In addition to that there's all the prizes available in the blog hop, so start hopping on to the next blog using the links below!

Thank you to my sponsor Artistic Pursuits for sending me a copy of this wonderful curriculum and to the winner of this giveaway.

What is Artistic Pursuits:
"The ARTistic Pursuits approach to teaching art is a welcome departure from typical art instruction books. This award winning homeschool art program meets the specific needs of homeschoolers at home. A variety of fun art lessons teach both the expressive and technical aspects of art while allowing children to make choices about what and how they will draw, paint, and sculpt."

Artistic Pursuits also has age appropriate books for preK-Sr. High!  I received the Preschool book and I think as my kids get older I will want the other books too!

My Review:
I have had this book for a couple months and I love it!  I have tried several of the activities listed and they were easy and fun for my daughter. On top of the fun I have learned a lot about art appropriate for the ages of my kids and understanding art in the eyes of a child.  

The first activity we did was create a sky picture.  We had just gotten back from a walk and the sky we saw was a dark rainy one, but I hoped online and we Googled some other pictures to look at.  She loved all the sunset pictures so she created a water color sunset.  

Another activity in the book was hand tracing.  My daughter did this a couple times and enjoyed it both times.  I also noticed her concentration was very intense as she tried to trace her hand and then trace line after line.  

We also worked on cutting!  I had a lot of paint color samples so I thought those would be perfect to get some practice cutting.  IT WORKED PERFECTLY! 

There are so many other ideas in the book and so many things to learn about art and how to encourage kids.  I am looking forward to continuing to use this for other projects.  

Time to enter the giveaway through the easy Rafflecopter form.  This giveaway is perfect for back to school time!  Any parent can use this book to help them do some extra fun projects at home or a homeschooler for art curriculum. 

In addition to the individual giveaways we have a HUGE GRAND PRIZE that is valued at over $300! So don't forget to visit Emptynester Reviews (entry on the rafflecopter) for the grand prize!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
