Bubbles has been a big fan of, well, bubbles, for quite some time now.  Nearly every day she asks if we can go outside and blow bubbles.  Doesn’t matter if it’s raining, windy, 100 degrees, or snowing – she wants to be outside playing with bubbles.

We were recently given the opportunity to review a scientific experiments kit from The Young Scientists Club.  After taking a few minutes to visit their site, my choice for a kit was a no-brainer.  They have a line of Clifford the Big Red Dog Science Kits, and we love Clifford.  But more exciting was the fact that one of the kits was a Bubble Science kit!

Our List Of Christmas Books For Toddlers

Bubbles has been a lot of fun this year with all things Christmas, and it’s not even December yet!  I can’t wait to see what she thinks of snow, a live Santa Claus,  gifts under the tree, and many other things.  One thing she is already loving, though, is sitting with Mama or Daddy and reading Christmas stories.  I thought I’d share some of our favorite Christmas books for toddlers.  Some are new, some are classic, but all are fun!
