Eco-mmunity Event Recap at Frog Hollow Neighborhood House


Last weekend on April 19th, we attended the Eco-mmunity Space Celebration event held at Frog Hollow Neighborhood House. It was a children's event organized by the youth in the community.  We got to learn about recycling and reusing materials to make new things.  It wasn't very busy as there were only a few kids. It was fun though.



The adults got free Starbucks coffee. Good for me to keep me awake.


Brandon had fun with the egg hunt in the playground.


Making things from recycled materials we picked out from the boxes.


We still had a lot of tickets left. We could've used it and made more recycled crafts.

Migalolo Ocean eBook {App Review}

I was recently introduced to a new musical eBook app.  My little one, Brandon, and I always enjoy fun, interactive story apps together. We like this eBook because we get to learn about the ocean, the animals that live in the ocean, and everything about marine biology. Whales and dolphins were always Brandon's favorite. It's very educational and I like the upbeat music.


Migalolo Ocean eBook by Siu lui shirley Choi

This new app from award-winning composer Shirley Choi invites children of all ages to experience and learn about the ocean in a fun, interactive way.

Migalolo features nine chapters which supplies over ninety minutes of educational, musical fun! Sing along with original songs as you watch rich graphics that show off scores of diverse sea creatures in their colourful undersea environment.

Kids will learn about important conservation topics, the science of the seas, and what they can do to help protect the Earth’s oceans. They will meet new friends like Henry a boy who is turned into a dolphin, his pet cat Iko, a wise turtle named Yai, and tons more. Swim along with Henry and Iko as they explore and meet all kinds of characters from rapping trout to sassy seabirds!


This app explores many important ocean topics, but does so in a fun and engaging way. The catchy tunes will have kids singing about the seas as they learn all about the ocean and the wonderful creatures who live there.

Veggie-Go's: Organic Chewy Fruit and Veggie Snacks to go

Spring Break is officially over and it's back to school. We had a slightly difficult time adjusting back to our regular schedule. Over the break, we had a little road trip vacation across the border. Though it was cloudy most of the time, we had fun exploring.


Before we headed out on our road trip, I packed up some Veggie-Go's snacks to munch on if we ever get hungry in the car or at the hotel. We don't get much veggies and fruits while on vacation so this was a convenient way to get something healthy. So these are the perfect on-the-go snacks for our travels and I learned that there are no preservatives. Veggie-Go's (a product of nakededgesnacks.com)  are similar to a fruit strip but are made from whole, organic fruit and vegetables.


We had a chance to try all the five flavors: TropiKale, Mountain Berry Spinach, Sweet Potato Pie, Cinnamon Spice Beet, and Carrot Ginger.

Brandon, our Little One, really loves Veggie-Go's. Though he found a couple of them too chewy for him, he likes the Sweet Potatoes Apples Spices flavor most. I'm surprised he even likes the one with kale, the Tropikale (mango, kiwi, kale, pumpkin, apples, and guava). It's pretty tasty and interesting with all these fruits mixed together.



Features & Benefits:
  • no added sugar
  • no preservatives
  • gluten-free
  • contains 1/2 serving of fruit AND 1/2 serving of veggies in every strip
  • less than 1/3 the sugar of the leading fruit strip (no added sugar or fruit concentrates)
  • easily fit in a purse, pocket, diaper bag, or backpack
  • perfect office snack and for school
  • perfect while traveling and for the great outdoors
WHERE TO BUY: Veggie-Go's are available for purchase online at www.nakededgesnacks.com/products or Well.ca (if you are in Canada). You can also purchase at a store near you.



Disclosure: I received the above mentioned product(s) from the company/PR firm at no charge in exchange for my review in this post. The opinions expressed are my own personal and honest thoughts. No other compensation was given.
