Recent Amazon Favorites


My Amazon shopping has slowed down significantly since quarantine began.  Shipping times have been slower, which I understand.  But through thick and thin, Amazon is always there for me.  Feel free to insert an eye roll or lol here.  I’m mainly ordering items to keep the kids busy, but they’re all worth sharing.  I hope that chatting about them here can help you with a new activity for your kids.  And please, please share any of your recommendations in the comments!

Now, let’s get into the details!


Oversized Umbrella

Spring means rain and a cute umbrella is the most useful accessory to get your hands on.  I like that this is clear so you can see things around you.  Plus, it falls low so you get extra protection from the rain drops!

No-Show Socks

I’m on my third order of these socks and slowly phasing out all of my other pairs and replacing them with these.  I promise you I’ve tried all of the no-show socks that exist and these are hands down the very best.  They stay in place and are great to wear for work out’s!  I can’t say enough good things about these!  Just a heads up though, that these frequently sell out.

Blue Light Glasses

I bought these for myself, but Avery and Greyson have each stolen a pair and I’m not mad about it.  They spend so much time looking at devices these days that I like them wearing a blue light blocker.

Felt Tip Pens

If you’re a pen addict like me, then you need these.  They’re a total steal and work exactly like the PaperMate Flare pens!  Plus, the color array is so pretty.  Avery has been stealing these and doodling with them, which makes me love them more.

Arts and Crafts Set

This set has provided all three of my children with hours of fun.  Greyson and Avery makes all kinds of creations with the pieces, while Riley likes to play with them all dumped into a bowl.  We have a bin with just the googley eyes, pom pom’s and confetti in it that she loves to sit and play with.

Cup with Handle

I wish I could express my extreme love of this cup to you all properly.  It is the best cup EVER!  I firmly believe the handle is a game changer and makes grabbing it and drinking water so much easier.

Toy Bead Kit

Riley loves making jewelry and these are perfect for her age.  The beads snap together and apart easily, making them frustration-free and long-lasting.

Water Beads

I avoided these for as long as possible until my friend gave us some to try.  Now I get why kids love them!  A spoonful can make an entire bin of beads and they’re oddly fun to play with.  We add scoops and spoons and give Riley bowls to move these around with.

Counting and Stacking Toy

I originally got this for Riley, but it has been great for Greyson!  He uses it for homeschool math and it works great.  The rings are perfect for assortments and the numbers are great for visualizing equations.  It comes with x, -, + and = too so you can practice equations without pencil and paper.

White Sharpie

These are very random, but I keep reaching for them again and again.  They are great for labeling things and all of the home made cards and arts and crafts we are making.  Because they are oil based, they are great for “fancier” art at home.

Small Trays

Katey from Chronicles of Frivolity suggested these for kids and I’m so glad I listened to her.  They’re great for painting, coloring, magnetic toys and even for their intended use – in the kitchen!  These are handy for the water beads, play bead jewelry and counting toys mentioned above – they keep the the small pieces contained!




Thank you so much for reading!  Have a fabulous day!

    That counting and stacking toy would be great for Serena especially while she’s not at school, and I’m always on the hunt for great no-show socks that stay put!

    The craft kits look so fun from Amazon. What a great idea! The counting and stacking toy is also a great idea. More of a modern take on the flashcard idea. These would be great gifts. Thanks for the ideas!
