WITH THE KIDDOS

Salt Dough – You can make anything and everything.

Earth Day Cookies Banana Penguins Frozen Yogurt Fruit Bites Frozen Bananas

We’re also building a solar system ! We’ll post on IG when it’s done.


TO EAT

Banana bread easy, quick, delicious – we substitute with whole wheat flower and add chocolate chips or blueberries.

We’re obsessed with this month’s #GlitteratiGirl Dana Kiyomura’s new foodie Instagram, @keyamourcooks everything looks delicious and she makes it all look so effortless!

Relax oil - We love to rub some on the soles of our feet before bedtime.

SpaceMasks – self heating eye mask, perfect for tired eyes or a headache after all that working from home while your kid is screaming in the backround.


SOMETHING USEFUL

A hydrating facial spray for all of those hours inside, we love them for traveling on long flights and long days at shows too. A few we buy over & over : Melvita Organic Rose Floral Water, Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist & Fresh Vitamin Nectar


SOMETHING USELESS

A pedometer or a pair of heels !

Good luck ladies and gentlemen! Stay safe. Stay healthy. Stay Home.
