The Story Egg Review – Teach Kids About the Easter Story!

My family and I are Christian, so holidays like Easter take on special meaning for us as we consider the role Jesus played on Resurrection Sunday. So I was very excited to get the chance to try out The Story Egg, a book and activity that helps teach kids about Easter!

The Story Egg takes kids through each day of Holy Week, starting on Palm Sunday and leading up to Easter Sunday. The activity uses seven stacked, hand-crafted wooden nesting Eggs, each with its own corresponding story in an illustrated hardcover book. You can open an egg each day with your children or read the whole thing at once!

The Eggs cover the following days of Holy Week:

  • Palm Sunday
  • House of Prayer Monday
  • Teacher of Love Tuesday
  • Give and Take Wednesday
  • Last Supper Thursday
  • Good Friday
  • Holy Saturday
  • Easter Sunday

Note that there is no corresponding egg for Easter Sunday – that’s because when you open the seventh egg (representing the stone that was rolled in front of the tomb), it’s empty!

We started with our daily readings last night at dinner and my kids (ages 8, 6, 4, and 3) were really interested. I can tell this is going to be a family tradition for years to come!

Diono Radian rXT Convertible Car Seat – The Only Car Seat You Will Ever Need!

Diono Radian rXT Convertible Car Seat Review

If you are looking for a car seat that provides exceptional safety features and can be the only car seat you will ever need, meet the Diono Radian rXT Convertible Car Seat! The Diono is a convertible car seat so it allows you to use it rear facing as well as forward facing. The weight limit is 5-40 lbs for rear facing and then up to 65 lbs for forward facing toddlers.

But it doesn’t stop there, it then can be transformed into a booster seat that can hold up to 120 lbs. It is a 3-in-1-design that all parents can appreciate. You invest in one seat and it works the entire time your child neats extra safety when they travel!

For my husband and I, we are always on the hunt for a car seat that provides top-notch safety features. We want to make sure that our little boy is protected everywhere we go, as much as he can be. What I love about the Diono brand is this seat is made from steel for extra safety, and the integrated steel frame is wrapped in a thick engineered plastic that can withstand a severe crash force. It also has reinforced sidewalls, which adds even more protection, and is surrounded by EPS foam to really add that extra layer of protection. If you are on the hunt for a car seat that will really provide that safety you desire, you should really consider the Diono brand!

My husband installed it in our 4Runner and it fits really well. I love the height of the car seat, as it allows Clay to be able to look out and see as we travel and it keeps him safe. The sidewall on the head area is a nice layer of protection to protect his head if we were to get into an accident. It will help him getting knocked around as much.

As for comfort, this is one of the nicest car seats I have personally felt and tried out. The fabric is a nice velour with mesh so it allows it to breathe well and has a lot of cushions to give your child a nice comfy ride. You can hand or machine wash which is really nice. In case of a spill or your child gets sick you can wash it. They do recommend to line dry to help protect the shelf life of the fabric.

I highly recommend the Diono Radian rXT Car Seat! We have been using it for awhile and couldn’t be happier!

It will project the time and a dinosaur on to the ceiling! You are able to select a timer if you want for how long it projects to the ceiling, 10 0r 30 minutes! It does offer 4 Dinosaur Images: Diabloceratops, Stegosaurus, Diplodocus and Pterodactyl, Ampelosaurus! I tried taking a picture of it, but I couldn’t get my camera not to use the flash.

The clock display itself is really nice, it took me just seconds to get the time set. It comes with a manual that is easy to read and the instructions are very clear! As for the alarm we won’t use it for awhile till Clay gets bigger, but I tried it out to see how it sounded. It was nice and loud and will do the job of waking up your kiddo’s!
