We’re spending a lot of time at home with our kids right now. So there are things I find myself thinking about even more when it comes to their care. We have to take care of all the usual things like mealtime and bathtime, but I also think about the time they’re spending on devices and other ways to help keep them having fun while we’re home.

FUNKINS MAKES LUNCH FUN
Lunchtime is one of our favorite times of the day. Choosing a new lunch kit each school year is one of our traditions. The stylish, insulated Funkins lunch bags are perfect for use at school and at home. If you’re a sports mom, they work great for taking snacks with you to practice!
The Funkins bags are designed by moms and tested by kids and teachers. That means they pack a ton of functionality, are washable, and are ultra-durable. Plus they also have super soft handles and zippers that are easy for kids to use on their own!
At home, the Funkins reusable placemats and cloth napkins for kids are a major help when it comes to keeping mealtime cleaner. Less cleanup always makes me a happy mom. The napkins and placemats are the perfect size for kids and are made from soft cotton that is thick, absorbent, and durable. I love having a reusable option at home that works great for the kids.
The newest additions to the Funkins line up are the family face masks. The face masks are made from the same fun prints as Funkins napkins. They’re soft and comfortable with bright and cheerful patterns. The Funkins masks are NON-MEDICAL grade, for personal use, and not for use in a medical setting.

GROUCH COUCH BOARD GAME FUN
My kids absolutely love board games and the newest game in our collection has been a hit! Grouch Couch from Spin Master is packed full of laughs and burps!
It’s a fast-paced game that is full of surprises. The couch grumbles, chomps, burps, eats treats and spits out Lost Goodies. The player with the most Lost Goodies when the Grouch Couch plays his victory song is the winner.
The game is easy to set up and my kids were playing and laughing in minutes.

KIDS WANT TO GO VIRAL
My kids are always talking about going viral. Whether or not they know what it means, they’re definitely growing in the age of technology. Video content is king for them and they have all sorts of plans for making their own videos.
Whether they go viral or not, the Insta Studio Hands-Free Video Station by WECool Toys is a great way for them to let their creativity flow. It’s the ultimate hands-free video recording that is easy for kids to use. All you need is your smartphone and they can start shooting their own videos.
My kids loved that it comes with 3 compounds, foam beads, mix-ins, and a mixing tool. They had everything they needed to start filming one type of viral video. It’s fun and I love how Insta Studio gives them a chance to be creative and explore technology.
PROTECTING OUR KIDS
Technology is definitely part of our children’s lives. There’s a lot we can do to protect our kids and their online lives. One thing we can do offline to protect them while they’re online is getting them comfortable Blue light glasses for kids.
Zenni eyewear is great for kids. It’s made of high-quality acetate and available in sizes for ages 4-15. They are designed to be comfortable with adjustable temple tips that don’t squeeze behind the ears and extended nose pads.
The Zenni frames include Zenni’s Blokz lenses. These lenses are designed to block harmful UV and blue light. This can help protect our kids from digital eye strain, blurred vision, and sleep issues.

We spend our days reminding our kids to do all kinds of things. But what about reminding them how much we love them. I tell mine that I love them all the time, but I love to do little things to show them I’m thinking about them. Lunch notes are the perfect way to do that!
