Mompact teaching kids independence

Encourage Independence In Your Children

These are some of my very favorite products – and I love that this giveaway package is all centered around helping kids learn new skills, gain confidence, and become more independent. And really, isn’t that the goal? We love that our kids need us now, but we want to raise them to be strong individuals who are ready to tackle all the challenges in life and reach for success. Providing them with products that make it easier for them to do daily tasks without your help gives them a big boost of self confidence when they accomplish things on their own. And that’s one of the best things to see.

Take a Peak at the awesome products one winner will take home:


The Aqueduck

This is a super clever little gadget that attaches easily to any type of bathroom or kitchen faucet, and streams the water in a different way to help little hands reach it so that they can wash up on their own. You can learn more about the Aqueduck Faucet Extender from some of the other moms who have used it too:

learn to feed yourselfBaby Dipper Feeding Set

This little set features a totally innovative bowl that angles to make it much easier for little ones to eat on their own. When they are a baby, the triangular slanted shape makes it perfect for one-handed feeding times, and as kiddos grow, it’s an amazing starter dish. It’s BPA free {very important to me} with a skid-proof bottom, and smartly designed utensils. Love it. Learn more about the Baby Dipper Feeding Set from these two mommas who are both big fans:

Antsy Pants cloth diapers

Antsy Pants: The best cloth diapers

We are just now starting on the potty training journey, so I haven’t tried these out yet – But I have been hearing some great feedback from the other moms in the group who are using them. And, can I just say – these are stinkin’ adorable! Seriously – almost too cute to cover up with pants, which would make them a really great option around here in the summer time. But I’ll let the moms who have used Antsy Pants Pull-Up Cloth Diapers in their homes give you some tips:

learning to stop thumb sucking

Thumbuddy to Love

This is a very sweet little product helps kids learn to stop thumb sucking in a way that’s fun, gentle, and positive. You can get the Ballerina version shown above, or a Fireman story and plush character, and they are seriously adorable. Read stories from a couple other moms who used this –  Stop Thumb Sucking with Thumbuddy To Love – gift set to help their kiddos learn better habits…

Peppa Pig & Nick Jr. Make Learning Fun!

Peppa Pig

Peppa Pig – Fun New Addition to the Nick Jr. Line Up!

Have you had a chance to check out this new kids show on Nick Jr. yet? It’s called Peppa Pig, and Abby is totally in love with it! I don’t let her watch a ton of cartoons, and I know that toddlers shouldn’t have too much TV time. But honestly – as a work at home mom, there are times when letting her play with blocks while she giggles away at a fun show on television is the only way that I’m going to get some work done. And, when the shows are helping to reinforce the letters, numbers, animals, colors and other things that I’m teaching her with our flashcards and books, then I think that they’re an ok addition to her day. We have a few favorites: the Baby Signing Time DVD’s have helped Abby and I learn over 100 signs over the past year. Dora gets Abby moving around, and burning off some of that wild toddler energy, as she does “Arms up!” or “Climb! Climb! Climb the ladder with me!” – and it’s so fun to watch her act out the motions. And, Peppa Pig is now a new favorite of ours… Abby thinks the little snorting pig sounds are just about the funniest thing she’s ever seen. Check out a peek….

Peppa Pig Teaches the Alphabet

Yes, it’s silly. But seriously – Abby just can’t get enough of those little piggies! If you want to tune in too, you can catch Peppa Pig on Nick Jr., or watch more episodes right now online. And make sure to follow Nick Jr. on Facebook and Twitter – for fun updates on new shows, giveaways, and promotions!

{Disclaimer: I was compensated with a complimentary DVD copy of Peppa Pig from Child’s Play Communication, so that I could watch them with my family and give you some honest feedback. Free swag never sways me – all opinions are 100% my own. I only endorse what I love – We love this show, and think you will too!}
