Dream, Imagine and Learn: A New Adventure in Creativity…

++this Smarts and Crafts post is sponsored by Walmart… thrilled to collaborate with a household brand we all know and love and excited to share some new arrivals for the kiddos today!!


“I’m bored”… the words no mama wants to hear from their littles when that summer schedule kicks into high gear. I’ll be honest, I stocked up on LOTS of activities and time occupiers before school let out so that we could have lots of fun + get our creative juices flowing to combat the days when we aren’t at a camp or out of town and I still hear that sentiment all too often.

SMARTS AND CRAFTS

Just this past week, the brand new collection of Smarts & Crafts by Todd Oldham debuted at Walmart and if you’re on the hunt for Activity Kits, Travel Sets, DIY Toys or Kids Room Essentials in a hue of rainbow fabulousness, they’ve got something that everyone will want to bring home for fun and learning all in one.

Created as a way to encourage ambient learning at home, this collection evokes imagination, intuitive problem solving and connects language + measurement + history + science and engineering skills so they can learn AND play in the space they feel most comfortable! And may just give you some quiet time while they create, too = see a win win for everyone.

Some of these I am having to keep hidden for now because they might be presents for someone’s birthday coming up next week!! My girls LOVE some art kits and ways to play together and when all of these goodies are priced at under $25, you can pick a few to let their imagination run wild, while learning at the same time.

More than 30 items are featured and I love that they offer insightful items for a range of ages, specifically those kiddos from 5 to 12 years and us adults who love to create as well.

AND while we are speaking about all things colorful and creative, let’s chat about the rainbow assortment of pillows, bedding, blankets and more to bring a little more POP into your playroom or kids bedroom this season without spending a ton of money!

The girls’ playroom has always been filled with all the whimsical I could find… rainbow bookshelves, mix and match pillows for our sectional sofa and of course other additions to make it a proper play place, so I wanted to share a handful of new finds we scooped up from Smarts + Crafts Room Collection for a comfy space that’s perfect for lounging and for taking in movie night together.

Needing a cute new throw blanket to cuddle with?? This Candy Drop Throw Blanket is super soft and at only $19, it’s a great way to add a bit of bright anywhere. And because my girls are always asking for different blankets so they can tell their apart, this Technicolor Diamond Throw Blanket checks off another option for just $12.

Finally, if you’re looking to bring in all the ROYGBIV into a guest bedroom, I think this Rainbow Pillow is just the ticket to bring you out of the neutral zone and live in color like me for just $28.
