Free kid's toothbrush

Sign up at Colgate to earn points for developing a good bedtime routine. You simply log each child's progress for each day they wash their hands, brush their teeth and read a book (or have someone read to them). When their log is filled, Colgate will send each child in your family (up to 10 children per email address) a free toothbrush!

This is a great way to teach healthy bedtime habits that will follow them throughout their life. I also hope the parents to do the program with the child/ren to encourage them to do the same.

Everyone knows the importance of washing hands and brushing teeth but reading is often over looked. Reading is very important in our household. In fact, my son has quite an extensive library of books to read thanks to numerous yard sale, Goodwill & McKay's trips! Some books he loves are Good Night Moon (and the video on YouTube is cute too) , Boom Chicka Rock, and currently The Lorax. The Lorax is great since Earth Day is coming up on April 22. We bought the book and the plush Lorax from Khol's for $5 each on Saturday.
We love Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, as well. My son gets a free book every month until he turns 5. Check to see if it is offered in your area.

What are your favorite bedtime routines or your child's favorite bedtime story?

Amazon/Fisher Price deal

Are you planning on using some of those Amazon gift cards you get from Swagbucks this month?

Until April 30, you can get this free Fisher-Price TRIO building set with any purchase of the select toys listed. Also, you can get free Super Saver Shipping on orders over $25.

The lowest priced eligible toy I found is the Brilliant Basics Baby's First Blocks for $8.54. They also have a couple other TRIO toys listed you could purchase to go along with the free one!

Also, check out the Toys Savings Event for other savings to get your total up enough to qualify for free shipping.

Free photo book from Hot Prints

Take a look at what come in the mail today. My son's free photo book! He was very excited to see the pictures from our trip to the zoo last year in his very own book. What could be better than a free book of our pictures? How about a free one every month!

You need to sign up at either Hot Prints or you can upload your pictures from your Facebook account and use their application. There are no shipping charges and they don't even ask for your credit card info! The book looks like a magazine and has a insert of ads from the sponsors that you can just pull out. I recommend saving as you add pictures to your book. The original one I made had fun facts about every animal and took me about 4 hours to make. Of course, I hadn't been saving it and lost all my progress!

This month I will be doing our pictures from the aquarium. Please feel free to share any ideas you have for future books with us!
