Favorite Umbrellas for Kids

They love them and get true joy from using one when it rains. We get soaked helping them use them when it rains. The umbrella - the ultimate accessory for kiddos. Recently we picked out a few really cute ones. Hey, if you’re going to get soaked they might as well look super cute, right?! I still have vivid memories from my childhood of pinching myself every. single. time. I went to close my umbrella haha. BUT I still had to have it on a rainy day! Enjoy some of Bitsy’s favorite umbrella picks for kiddos below. (PS - any of these would make a fun stocking stuffer!)…

The Best Cape for Kids

It’s our favorite and there is a reason. In my Bitsy travels I came across the ultimate children’s outerwear cape company. Yes, capes - classic, sweet, fun to wear. Great for seasonal transitions and adding a fun new silhouette, right?! Well, most of it, but the practicality and comfort level in children’s outerwear capes has never been there. Since Lucy was born I have been attracted to the cape look on little ones. In fact, I crave it and always gravitate towards it. However, since I’ve been dressing my own little ones I realize what a pain in the butt capes can be - for them and for me! My girls always end up choosing not to wear them and I am always bummed to the max. Capes that I bought them in the past would just sit in their closets. The season would come and go and we would log it into the “mom lost” pile. Womp womp. Then I came across…

Flower Girls

A few weeks ago (back in August) Lucy and Greer were flower girls in Mike’s cousin’s wedding. It was their first time flower girl-ing and boy did they nail it. More importantly, they fully enjoyed every single second of it! I rocked proud mama eyes the whole day. The bride was super…

Bitsy x Me Do

When you meet a mom friend that ignites something in you and makes you feel like ‘shoot, i can do this !’! That’s what happened when I met my friend Diana for the first time. Not only did we hit it off just by connecting on life, but we are both passionate about children’s style + clothing! We fully inspired one another from the start. To boot, Diana is the creator and owner of Me-Do, Inc. A children’s basics clothing company that was created to empower both children and parents. Here’s how…

DIY with Me and My Hubs - Pretend Shop for Kiddos!

Happy Monday! Today we are excited to start a new series on the blog. The series, “DIY with Me and My Hubs”, will be our way of sharing projects Mike and I have taken on (whether they are projects we have created or projects we have read + learned about that became inspiration for our own household needs|wants). Since Mike and I are DIYers and love to create, there have a been a lot thus far. Some live permanently in our old home, others are movable and some now live in our “new” renovated (by us!) farmhouse. Today’s project share - a mini pretend play retail shop (lemonade stand, puppet show stage, etc) for kiddos….

Back to School - The Backpack Edit

As much as I am dreading the start of school, it is time to start shopping for the little ones so parents are prepared and the kids are excited. Since back to school shopping can be overwhelming, exhausting and annoying, we've decided to share our “back to school” edits with you. We are sharing the backpacks that we feel are worthy choices. Reasons being…these are the bags that pack a good style punch (yet, not something your kiddos will get sick of easily - or you!), the bags we feel are functional for elementary schoolers to carry,

Gardening With The Littles

It’s not a secret that I have a brown thumb. Truthfully anything I attempt to plant, if I’m successful to even get it in the dirt properly, usually ends up dying. However, in our new home I have made a firm commitment to embrace it, make our new yard our own and enjoy it while doing it! Enter my girls…

S.T.E.A.M.

Five words you want your child/ren to grasp, learn, understand, but mostly have fun while engaging. Bitsy came across an innovative children’s STEM-focused company that is going to blow your mind. We’re sharing KiwiCo. with you today to motivate you and your little ones into learning, fun projects and keeping busy (did we say while learning?!)! Kiwi Co. was created by educators, makers and engineers to bring today’s child an exciting approach to science, technology, engineering, art and math. They neatly and passionately create amazing experiences in all of these categories for children of ages 0-16(+!). Experiences like making and assembling your own light up wire art and a “fun with flight” experience where they are able to create their own funny-face paper kites that really fly! One of the projects that that Bitsy has its eye on and really WOWS us is the one that allows you to build and fire a real, functioning trebuchet that launches a ping-pong ball up to 10 feet. Yup. Mind blown!

Finger Puppets

Lucy’s birthday is coming up (soon 😁) and we’ve started the planning. So, as we think through our favorite gifts, we decided to motivate you today with another great birthday gift idea. Lu’s birthday wish list is more detailed this year, as she will be turning 8, so the pressure is kind of off to get super creative. However, we always like to surprise our girls with something a little more personal, more special from Mike and myself. We know you know at this point how much Bitsy loves Pinhole Press so bare with us as we share yet another great (inexpensive) gift option for kiddos that will really show you love them. And, best of all, this gift creates imaginative play for hours. Our girls adore them and frequently I will find them on their own playing with them, creating stories and characters and scenarios that would spark an interest in play in even the crankiest kid! Introducing…
