:: Birthday BASH :: Giveaway #19



OK. I am seriously dying over this giveaway.  Because I know my kids would adore this!  Especially in 2 weeks when I fly them out to Grandma and Papa's in North Carolina where they are staying for 3.5 weeks.  This is just sweet!  After I post... I am going to email Malia and beg her to open her shop ASAP!  First.  Let's meet the mastermind behind this shop...

My name is Malia and I like making stuff.  I'm into crafting, elegant upcycling and finding fun vintage items.  I enjoy finding the art in everyday life-- picking a pretty wildflower or making watercolor painting with my kids.




Bee Busy Kid Bags:  Designed to corral kid's activities + toys while riding in the car, at restaurants and waiting for appointments.  Each 9 1/2 x 8 inch handmade canvas carryall is fastened inside with kid friendly velcro.  Features chalkboard material on the front of bag so child can personalize.  Also comes with a reusable tin, covered with chalkboard material and filled with crayons and colored chalk.  Also included-- a pad of recycled paper.

Busy Kids = Happy Parents

I am giving away the apple bag + contents.





Yes please!


Here is how to enter ....

Um, that is too cute! Malia you really, really, really need to open up a shop! ;)

I don't have a three year old, but I have a two year old - I contend that it is harder to keep a two year old busy than it is a three year old. That aside I keep the music on cause she loves to dance dance dance! . . . And play air drums.

That bag is adorable! Really, Malia, you must open your shop right away!

My 3 year old turned 4 in January, which actually makes him my 4 year old, but that's water under the bridge now, isn't it? Anyway, my favorite way to keep him busy is letting him "cook" with me! Give him a pot, a measuring cup and a couple of spoons and he'll happily measure water and other ingredients until his heart's content!

My three year old is a boy and he is constantly on moving/running/making noise. His attention span isn't the best still, but taking him outside is the best way to keep him occupied. It doesn't matter what we do outside: working in the yard, washing the car, playing on the swingset, taking a walk....anything outdoors keep him busy!!

Katie B. said...

Genius! My kid would go nuts for this. Yes, please on the shop!

Katie B. said...

My son turns 3 in a few months, and there are two things that keep him busy. 1, matchbox cars. 2, my iphone. This would be so much better!!

The McKays said...

oh yes, open a shop. parents would love this for their kiddos in restaurants especially!

The McKays said...

let's see...favorite way to keep M busy...i think it's all about having a variety of things lined up and anticipating when she'll be ready for a change. we do lots of puzzles, books, coloring, some school time, cooking 1x a week, playing outside. just being aware that she's wrapping up her focus on playing with say, beads, and will be needing some re-direction soon. does that make sense? xoxo

Yes.. open a shop.. this would help all parents!!

Well, I have a nearly 3 year old and my favorite way to keep him busy is to set him up at the table with crayons, markers, and paper and let him go to town! He loves coloring and I love all of his creations.

Open your shop! My favorite way to keep my 3 yr old busy is coloring, she seems to be very artistically inclined and gets entranced in coloring books. We also read a TON!
