Fit Made Fun Day with Leapfrog, Sat September 6!! #FitMadeFun

Hello Dear Readers:

  I was sent a cool Leapband from Leapfrog Kit with lots of yummy snacks and the new Leapband  to celebrate Fit Made Fun Day and for the purposes of this blog post. The opinions within are my own!!

Fit Made Fun Day was this past Saturday, September 6th! It just so happened to be Ana's first day of soccer practice at Stringham Fields as well. Ana is playing in a 5 and under league and there are oodles of kids playing.  Check her out in action and in her cute soccer outfit:

So we met some friends there and they played soccer then, we had a playdate on the amazing playground there and shared our snacks including the new Clif Bars for Kids. Ana wore her cool new Leapband and we explained how easy it is to setup, choose a pet to play with and then exercise and have fun with. All of the kids tried it out.

Coinciding with the global launch of the LeapBand, the new wearable activity tracker from LeapFrog, this special celebration encouraged kids and their families to jump into motion and experience the fun of an active and healthy lifestyle.  It was a lot of fun!! Here is what came in our kit, check it out:
  • Two (2) LeapBands
    • LeapBand is the cool wearable activity tracker that encourages kids to get active with customizable virtual pet pals. LeapBand tracks kids' every movement and suggests fun active challenges - and the more they move, the more points they earn to unlock virtual rewards for their pets and get to new levels!
  • CLIF Kid Zbar Protein samples 
    • Clif Kid Zbar Protein is a delicious whole grain protein snack made with nutritious building blocks for kids' growing bodies, so kids can keep zipping and zooming along!

We had such a blast and I know you would too. The Leapband from Leapfrog is the perfect gift for the holidays to keep your kids active and healthy. Just like my little peanut.

I received this product for free from Smiley360 in exchange for my honest review. You can join Smiley360 HERE! All opinions within are my own.

Dear Readers:

 As I age, and notice that my teeth and gums are more sensitive, I look for better quality products to keep them clean and white. I drink a lot of coffee so my teeth are not the brightest white that I want them to be, but using Crest Pro Health products: brush, toothpaste and mouth rinse helps combat the yellowing. Plus, my breath is fresh and minty! Smells great. Looks great and feels great. 

For the past month or so, I have been using these in combination so that my next checkup at the dentist will be easy and breezy:
