Let’s get pasting! There’s nothing more romantic than hand-made valentines right? Let your kiddos craft their own at LittleBits in Natick this coming weekend. Stop by Sat. 2/9 from 2-3 pm or Sun. 2/10 from 2-3 pm for an hour of creating some sweetness. We’ll provide all the necessary supplies, but if you run out of time bring some home to finish up the job: we’ve got glue sticks, construction paper, glitter glue, stickers, and more! Ask for tips.
If glue isn’t your child’s favorite tool, we’ve got pre-packs of valentines as well. Smell something sweet? Check out our Scratch n’ Sniff valentines from Peaceable Kingdom. Pre-packs run from $6.99 to $11.99. Stop in to see what we’ve got! Happy Valentine’s!
To celebrate Valentine’s Day and National Hearth Month, take 20% off all jump ropes tomorrow at both stores! Have a sweet and healthy 14th!
But for safety, here’s how to measure a jump rope for your child:
1. Have them stand on the rope in the middle.
2. The handles should come up just short of the armpits.
3. Pull it up and knot it there.
If you are at the store and trying to decide which one to buy, here’s a guideline: according to jumprope.com, a 7-foot rope is ideal for kids up to 4 feet, 10 inches tall, and an 8-foot rope works for children up to 5 feet 3 inches tall. Use 9-foot ropes for kids who are up to 5 feet 10 inches tall. Read more here. We offer two sizes: 8 ft. for $5.99 and 16 ft. for $11.99, both of which you can trim down to size.
Jumping rope is an excellent way to break from the screen and get some fresh air and exercise – get hopping!
