How much water should you be drinking? This smart bottle can help.

Our whole staff pshaw-ed the idea of a smart water bottle until our Editor Kate gave it a try for a week. Turns out, it can actually help you drink more water, which so many of us really need to do. Not only does the Hidrate Spark track your water intake with its companion app, but it will also give you reminders to drink more water. Granted, a smart water bottle is an investment, at least compared to what you might be using right now, but if you’re like us and tend to reach for the coffee or tea...

What’s in that high performance water bottle? Not vodka.

If you’re looking for a great gift for a friend’s New Year’s party — someone who’s unique, a little cheeky, and maybe into yoga, hiking, or any other activity — you’ve got to check out these high-end, high performance water bottles with a name that’s a real conversation starter. Not Vodka water bottles are made to allow your preferred drink (water, or otherwise) to stay cold for 30 hours, hot for 12 hours, and fizzy forever. No BPA, no yucky chemicals, no annoying bottle sweat, either. And they donate $1 from every bottle sold to your choice of one of two charities — Project Thirst...

Support the National Parks Foundation with these cool Camelbak water bottles

A new water bottle is one of our back to school staples, and we’ve always been big Camelbak fans in my house. So how cool that they’ve teamed up with the National Parks for this new collection of water bottles that actually give back when you buy them. Related: The Bottlerocket water bottle from PlanetBox. Is it worth the price?  Each of these BPA-free water bottles feature a National Park, including big names like Yellowstone and Yosemite, and perhaps not as well-known parks like Arches and Olympic (at least, not as known to me). There are also a couple of...

Shark Week is coming! Get ready with our 10 favorite shark picks for kids

Though the Fourth of July may be the number one holiday of the summer, Shark Week comes in a close second.

Our favorite gifts inspired by our favorite Children’s Book Week posters

I hate to admit it, but every once in a while I find myself fussing at my kids, “Put that book down and come on!” But, I have to say, I truly love when they’re nose-deep in a book. And I’m on a lifetime quest to forever encourage my kids’ love of reading. So, in honor of Children’s Book Week this week, we think everyone should grab a copy of the 2016 Children’s Book Week poster created by illustrator Brian Won. It’s free, while supplies last, from Book Week Online. Whoo! Related: The ultimate list of the best kids’ books of 2015 And if you’re feeling a wee bit nostalgic for...

We heart the new personalized emoji labels from Mabel’s Labels

We all have hearts in our eyes over Mabel’s Labels’ latest design: personalized Emoji name labels for our kids’ water bottles, backpacks, toys, and — of course — favorite texting device. With three designs to choose from, parents can pick the emoji that best represents their child. No, none of them are scowling — that’s just a phase. Honest. And, thankfully, the poop icon isn’t represented in this group. Related: Fun emoji gifts: For kids or kids at heart I love that each set comes with 45 bright and durable labels, so we can add them to (and re-add them to) tons of stuff that our kids have a habit...

Are you oversharenting? 5 questions to consider before you share photos of your kids on social media

Not a week goes by where we don’t get some question related to social media and kids. It’s definitely something on most parents’ minds these days, and a debate that can get, well, pretty heated. And we get it, no one wants to be judged about their parenting choices. And so, with the recent article in The New York Times’ Well family blog sharing research that shows kids care about what their parents are posting about them, we decided to discuss this tricky topic on our Spawned with Kristen and Liz podcast. We discuss our own experiences as parents who are also bloggers and website...

The coolest lunch box accessories, water bottles, and other goodies to make school lunch more fun | Back to school guide 2015

When it comes to our back to school guide, we always love tracking down those cool lunch box accessories, water bottles, bentos, and other fun goodies that help make opening that same old lunch box every day a little more special. Some of our picks are little affordable treats, some are slightly more expensive products that we adore and stand by. The way we see it, we’d rather buy one great water bottle that lasts a lot of years, than a cheap new one every year. But hey, there’s so many cool things to choose from these days! From fun ice...

The new Bottlerocket Water Bottle from PlanetBox: Is it worth the price?

When PlanetBox, the makers of those uber popular stainless-steel lunch boxes, asked if I’d like to check out their new Bottlerocket water bottle, I didn’t even blink before saying yes. I recently ditched juice boxes from my kids’ lunches to save a little money and cut down on their sugar intake, which means they now fill and pack their own water bottle every day. So I’m always looking for the exact perfect one. However at $28, this is probably one of the priciest water bottles I’ve seen for kids — a good $10 more than the popular Klean Kanteen bottle. So I...
