Rhyme to Read Giveaway

Rhyme to Read - Reading App Giveaway

Rhyme to Read Giveaway

Sponsored by Rhyme to Read

Hosted by Pea of Sweetness

Co-Hosted by Deals of Sweetness



Rhyme to Read is a highly effective program for beginning readers. The program emphasizes word families (e.g., cat, rat, sat) which are color-coded to assist children in discriminating the different patterns. The only prerequisites are the recognition of letters and knowledge of consonant letter-sound connections. Rhyme to Read enables children to feel confident as they enter the world of reading.

Emilee at Pea of Sweetness uses Rhyme to Read with their three children - their preschooler just recently introduced to reading and their 6 and 8 year old who are both homeschooled in the 2nd grade level except in reading. Both have had struggles with reading due to their special needs. See what they thought in her Rhyme to Read reading app review.

Bee Sili Ice Pop Molds


#BeeSiliPopMolds

We really like our frozen treats around here. We like the ice cream bars and drumsticks, but we love creating our own treats! I was super excited to receive these Bee Sili Ice Pop Molds to review. 

They are made of food grade, FDA approved silicone. They are also 100% BPA free and toxic free so we can use them without worry. 

These are super easy to clean by hand, but they are also dishwasher safe. 

We have been trying different things in them and we love how easy they are to use from start to finish and start again! We have froze sweet tea, fruit juice, orange juice, cream soda and lemonade. We have always liked freezing our drinks, but in the past, we used plastic cups. It worked fine, but made eating them a chore because a cup makes a rather thick, frozen chunk. You have to wait for it to partially thaw before you can even begin to enjoy it. We have bent a few spoons over the years! And these take up much less space in the freezer.

The Bee Sili Ice Pop Molds are easy to hold and your fingers don't freeze! Our treats are easier to eat and there is no mess either. And with six molds, we can fill each one with something different and have a variety to choose from. We like variety!

The Ice Pop Molds hold about 1/3 cup which is a decent serving that satisfies our craves for crunchy, frozen, sweet treats. 

We like that these are reusable and are of great quality so they will last a good long time, which is great for the wallet as well as the environment! These are cool for kids and adults alike... anyone that likes to freeze their own treats and likes to be eco-friendly.

You can get a set of these great Bee Sili Ice Pop Molds from Amazon.com.

Fruit Fusion Infuser Bottle


#FruitFusion

From the first time I filled this infusion water bottle, I was in serious like with it! Now that I have had some time to use it and I love it! I received one of the Fruit Fusion (TM) Infuser Bottle to review and it is a wonderful, healthy way to flavor your water. Anyone that doesn't drink water because it's "boring", needs one of these.

I had seen infuser bottles online and my interest was piqued because I am mostly a tea and water drinker. I have cut out carbonated drinks of all kinds with only an occasional root beer or cream soda ( love to freeze them!). I also don't use the water flavorings that are available because the artificial sweeteners they contain make me sick. Aspartame makes my stomach hurt really bad so I try to avoid it like the plague! 
When I do flavor my water, I use True Lemon or True Lime. It is made from real lemons and limes and has no added sugars at all... it's like adding a regular lemon (or lime ) slice to your water. The fruit Fusion Infuser bottle ramps up flavored water in a huge way! You will be surprised how fast you drink 26 ounces of water when it tastes awesome!
I have been experimenting with different fruits and combinations. I have used several different frozen fruits as well as a few fresh ones. Raspberries are hands down my favorite right now! Some, like fresh strawberries didn't produce as much flavor as I would have liked.  Frozen peaches alone didn't produce much flavor either, but mixed with raspberries and refrigerated for awhile brought out some flavor.   
I have used fresh apples, oranges and kiwi, frozen peaches, raspberries and blackberries that I picked this Summer. I used the True Lemon powder with raspberries. I used True Lime with raspberries. I mixed peaches and raspberries. I mixed apple and oranges. I mixed raspberries  and blackberries. Refrigerating for a little bit after add the fruit, brings out more flavor. Refrigerating it over night makes for a much more intense flavor. I can say I am hooked on this thing! It it fabulously delicious! I will be mixing up some flavored teas soon! I want to do peaches in tea, but I want to use juicy fresh ones. I also want to get some pineapples. The possibilities and combinations are endless! 
The bottle is designed pretty cool too. The loop on the lip makes it easy to carry when I have my hands full. Which is often because I have been carrying this with me everywhere! It is easy to take apart to fill and clean and just as easy to reassemble and use. The filter cap that connects the lid and the infuser works great to keep any and all little bits of fruit from getting past.


 It cleans up easily too. The infuser is removable by simply unscrewing it from the filter cap which in turn screws to the lid. It all washes easily. 
I like that this bottle is not only made in the USA, but it is BPA and lead free so you don't have to worry about toxins leaching into your beverages. 





#FruitFusion

Fruit Fusion (TM) Infuser Bottle makes drinking water fun! You can get one for yourself on Amazon.com for just $9.97. If you have Prime you'll even get free shipping!
