Monday, Feb. 18th is Sticky Mosaic Day! Come and try one and then take some home for 20% off! Sticky Mosaics, if you haven’t heard, are a creative, practically mess-free activity for children (ages 3+, but please see package for specific age recommendations). Kids can make their own pictures with adhesive backed tiles of foam and jewels.

Phew! It’s hot! Why don’t you cool down with some ice cold lemonade? July is a great time for kids to have a lemonade stand, and we want to see them! To encourage your kids’ entrepreneurial enterprises, we’re giving away a Daydream Play “My Own Lemonade Stand” with waterproof top–a $39.95 value (pictured above)! Post a photo of your lemonade stand on our facebook wall and you’ll be entered to win! Drawing will be on August 1st, so you’ve got the whole month of July.
The Daydream Play stand is 100% made in America and is free of phthalates and lead. It’s also made of sustainable materials, and to top it off the company donates 30% of their net profit to Rainforest Foundation. The “My Own Lemonade Stand” comes in 3 colors.
Lemonade stands are not only a great way to kill boredom on a summer day, but they are an opportunity for children to earn a little bit of money and to feel proud of their businesses. Plus, they’re so darn cute. So get squeezing and show us what you come up with! Winner will be announced August 1st on facebook.
Melissa & Doug has a special line of toys that inspire kids to explore and have fun outside. We have new items and some old favorites that are sure to win summer after summer… all at a great price point for birthdays or anytime gifts.
