Doodle Made Easy With Coco Color Stylus and Apps

We have been having a lot of adventures this summer and were so happy to be sharing them with all of you guys. So far we have visited several cities including Chattanooga TN, Atlanta GA, Knoxville TN, Cincinnati OH, Asheville NC, Cherokee NC, Indianapolis IN, Louisville KY, St Louis MI, and quite a few smaller cities. A few we have even been to several times. That being said, we spend a lot of time on the road.

What do you do with a car load of kids besides cry, stop the car, and walk the rest of the way, alone? Get fun stuff for the kids to do along with head phones, and holy cow, teach them to tether!! Tethering has single-handedly saved me from a breakdown, on top of a melt down, several times.

So, what stuff is fun for your kids? Apps of course! We used to pack the seat cover packs with crayons, snacks, coloring books, paper, and so much more unnecessary stuff. Don't get me wrong, coloring by hand is amazing but my kids like to color on non-paper things like my seats and themselves. Problem solved, we had to adjust the stash.

An amazing, messless option for the classic pass time is something very new to me. Have you heard of coco color? It's a really cool app that makes coloring a fun and clean pass time for the car rides.

I reviewed an awesome dual port charger also if you want to check it out. It's awesome for the road trips when you need more than one charger if you want to check it out. 4 Steps For The Perfect Family Road Trip. This would have been a great app to add to that post but I wanted to do them separately.

Aside from the stylus being fun for the car, it's fun everywhere. It's the size of a fat marker and fits in a purse, bag, or backpack. It's easy-to-click options change colors and sizes to make every texture just as easy as having the box of art supplies right next to you. It's so cool.

This is fun for adults too. We use the adult coloring books for their relaxing capabilities. With this awesome stylus, it's just as easy to do the digital ones.

Here is what the company has to say about the Coco Color Stylus and its' functions:
  • World's 1st & Original remote coloring stylus designed for tweens and adults.
  • 768 Color/Stroke Style/Stroke Size Combinations. FREE Coco Color Apps - Coco Color Voyages & Coco Color Doodle
  • Four style icons (Pen, Pencil, Pastel & Paint). Each time a particular style button is pressed the size of that style increases 1-4 times.
  • Eight Color Buttons. Each Color Button has a Color Arc of 6 Colors - total 48 Colors.
  • Coco Color received Scholastic's "Teachers' Picks, Best of 2017 award" - a fantastic endorsement from the best-known publishers for the American Education market.

So, from a first-hand experience, I want to share how easy it is to use the Coco Color Stylus and Apps. I installed the apps from Google Play with no problems ay all. The first one is the Coco Color Doodle app.

Right away it walks the user through using the app and how-to use it. For this app, activating the battery is not necessary for what I have seen. The doodler can write with either a pen, pencil, crayon, or paintbrush. Choosing the color is easy too. touch the writing instrument with the stylus and it toggles between the 4. touching and holding each color displays more colors to choose from, it's very own color wheel. That gives a total of 48 colors and 4 instruments to use.

Switching between pages is very easy too. When you are all done with that page touch the page icon with the "+" on it. That will give you a pop-up box asking if you want to save before you go to a clean page. The other icon is a square with an arrow up, that allows you to share your pretty picture with your friends.

The Coco Color Voyager app is another awesome app. When starting the app you get the tutorial of how the stylus works and the choice of a younger or older fairy to guide you. I picked the older, I got to color her too :)

We started in Outer Space with an awesome picture to color. This is so fun! Just by turning on the pen, we can now share our images and everything.

This is so cool and easy to use. What I love about it is, if you are done with one page, you can save it to the Gallary and come back to it later.

These are simple apps to download and the stylus is so easy to manage. It makes the adventures so much more colorful and clean!

4 Steps to The Perfect Road Trip

How to have the perfect family road trip...

Pick the perfect destination

Finding a place where the whole family can have a great time is tricky sometimes. Especially if you have older kids. Pick somewhere you can make memories. That's not always going to be the most expensive place, the place that's on the commercials, or the place the furthest from home.

Map (phone or other devices)

I use google maps. It takes us on a lot of cool rides and usually around all of the cities to make better timing. I can pick my route if there is more than one.

Don't forget the games for the kids (laptops, iPads, anything digital)

Games and traveling are awesome and pretty much messless. That's a definite bonus when it comes to traveling. Really, you don't want to add more stress by having to clean a bunch later.

I just got to review an awesome Stylus that has apps! THis is perfect for being in the car or anywhere if you want to check it out- Doodling Made Easy With Coco Color Stylus and Apps. It's a stylus that is made for coloring on touch screen devices. It takes the place of a pen, pencil, paintbrush, and marker all in 48 colors! With no cleanup!! I love this thing.

So, let's get going!!

Loading the car....

#1- This matters more than any of the other things.

Keep all devices, chargers, cords, ear buds and bases in the front of the vehicle, before loading. Put them in the car first. I will never be able to put into words how important this is and it may take longer than any other part of the packing. Put them in a safe deliberate spot.

For me, that's usually the driver seat. That way when I am ready to go, they are in my way and I can transition them into my lap and disperse them where they need to be. Even if that means several trips around the car to ensure their proper placement. That is very important. (reasoning listed below).

A charger that we love to use is the Ulwae USB Car Charger. We can charge 2 devices at once. We don't lose power by adding the second cord and it keeps 2 kids happy at the same time. We have a power port in the front and the back of the car, both with dual ports!

OMG RE-Check the pile for an extra set of headphones, an unclaimed, universal pair. If you are traveling with more than one passenger, you will need the extra pair to settle a dispute 6 hours from here.

#2- Pack everyone's bags in the furthest part of the vehicle. 
Notice the fence behind the luggage. No dirty hands!! 

If you have a trunk, that would be ideal. That way, the grubby- road tripping hands can't rifle through the bags getting their clothes dirty before they even get to put them on. If you have little bags of stuff to keep them occupied, that's great but, don't put clothes in those bags. You will thank me later.

Recommendation-  Let the kids travel in play clothes, not the outfit you want them to arrive in. The clothes you want them to arrive in to see grama/grampa/cousin/auntie/ or whom ever it may be, put them in 1 bag together in a location right next to the opening of the trunk. That way, on the last snack/ potty/ gas/ breather stop you take, they can do a quick change and refresher. If you are traveling far, don't let them change until you arrive at your motel, then go visit the fam.

#3- Get ready to go! 

Open the door to the house and yell, "Ok Guys, - Let's Go".

This will cause mass hysteria through the passenger's minds. It's okay. You are awesome and #1 is done- relax, no matter how stressful the loading period is, it won't take too long, and everyone will be buckled.

#4 Get Going

Lock the door to the house. As long as the passengers and the pile of devices and wires are safely in the car, you don't NEED anything else out of the house.

Why number 1 is the most important-

The excitement will wear off about the trip about 75 yards (or less) from the end of the driveway and all of the passengers will want their devices (and probably yours for some reason) to keep them occupied.

Now that the devices are dispersed, start the road trip. It really doesn't matter if everything else is packed in the car from this point.

whether it is across town or cross country, you can get anything else you may need along the way. I am not kidding. You may have the perfect lunch packed, the drink cooler stocked, coordinating outfits for the special arrival, and gifts for the whole distant family. If you can't get there without losing your mind, the trip is kind of a bust.

Color Me Happy with Crayola- Back To School

So much awesome Back To School Stuff!!! I really am enjoying this mid-year celebration. In just a few short weeks the alarm clocks will be ringing, the kids will be scrambling through the house, arguing over who is using who's brush and looking for the school supply list to check for one last, 500th time before the first day.

Crayola is having a huge sale right now. Christmas in July Sale Event Save 20% on Color Escapes Adult Coloring & Toys and Activities NO CODE REQUIRED. 

I am so happy Crayola will be a part of that day. I have a long love of Crayola. I have told the story before. My grama was a school teacher and said Crayola was the best and that's all we used at her house learning the amazing world of colors.
My parents carried on the tradition with us. It really does make a difference. I love the smooth texture and coverage that I can depend on with their crayons, colored pencils and markers. This year we are so excited to be showing you the Silly Scents! Pencils, Markers, and Crayons- Oh My!!

The kids are so excited and it's been killing them making them wait to open the packages. But, hey, I'm a blogger! I need pictures of them first, house hold rule. No opening of any product until they clear it with me. It's so funny but it saves me from them getting into stuff I don't want them to get in to.

I am going to go through everything I go t in my awesome package from Crayola.

Silly Scents

12 Scented Twistables Crayons
Includes the scents- cherry, fruit punch, orange, lemon, green apple, beach, blueberry, grape, cotton candy, licorice, coconut, and root beer.

24 Scented Twistable Crayons
Includes the scents cherry, strawberry, cinnamon,  orange, popcorn, lemon, banana, lime, watermelon,  green apple, pine,  beach, blueberry, cola, wild berry, grape, fruit smoothie, fruit punch,  cotton candy, licorice, coconut, fresh air, root beer, and flower.

12 Scented Twistables Colored Pencils
Includes the scents- cherry, fruit punch, orange, lemon, green apple, beach, blueberry, grape, cotton candy, licorice, coconut, and root beer.

6 Scented Chisel Tip Markers
Scents include cherry, orange, lemon, green apple, blueberry, and licorice.

10 Scented Slim Markers 
Includes the Scents- strawberry, watermelon, cotton candy, lemon, lime, fresh air, blueberry, caramel, marshmallow, and root beer. 

12 Scented Markers
Includes the Scents- cherry, fruit punch, orange, lemon, green apple, fresh air, blueberry, grape, marshmallow, root beer and cotton candy.

These are all so awesome. YOu won't believe how they all smell like what they are named. Their colors really go with them too. It all makes "scents"!

The rest of the package is super cool too! All of the classic originals we love. 

24 pack (including Dandelion)

8 Classic Ultra-Clean Washable Markers- Broad Line
10 Classic Colors- Broad Line
50 Super Tips Markers- Draw Thick Draw Thin

24 pre-sharpened pencils

I love Crayola for their dependability and durability. They last and last. Their colors are bright and they last a life time. Just to prove my point, my mom has a picture I made her for mothers day, 21 years ago and it still has life left. I don't get to her house as much as I would like but, it's still there. 

Crayola has a special place in my heart for all of the memories we have made. One of my favorite things in the world is to see my kids laying on the floor with a box of colors.

Save Money On Kids Allowance with 2 in 1 UV Pen

I love doing fun stuff with the kids and "Making Magic" for them. What's even more fun is working with companies that help me out with that. I just got to work on a review with a 2 in 1 UV Black Light Combo Creative Stationery Invisible Ink Pen Highlighter.

We have been covering some really cool Back To School products for you guy too showing you what's in our kid's backpacks. this is just another awesome product to make your kid, the cool kid.

What it is, is a highlighter with invisible ink. Those are great for regular writing but what makes this one unique is it has a built in UV light to make the writing glow. It doesn't even have to be in the dark. It's so cool.

Our favorite game to play so far putting a note on the refrigerator that says- This is how much your allowance is this week but you can't have the light until you're done with them all. Even the socks and silverware.

Then when they get in there with the done chores they can pick the paper they have or pick a different paper with a different amount. The only catch is, they can't see what it is until after they pick. So far I saved $2.50 on one kid and lost $1 on the other. It was FUN and EXCITING!

This 2 in 1 highlighter writes on all surfaces that we have found so far.  Paper, skin, cardboard, and walls. I'm sure there is more, we just haven't tried any.

Oh Yes, the joy of being an awesome parent!

This is an awesome tool/toy/writing instrument. If you are looking for a fun highlighter, check out the 2 in 1 UV Black Light Combo Creative Stationery Invisible Ink Pen Highlighter. It's available on MyBruneiStore.

Fun Crafting With Vinyl Transfer Paper

Arts and crafts are so much fun, so why not bring it to fashion right? My kids love making stuff. What I think is mostly messes and extra stress actually turn out to be pretty cool after the clean up is done.

One thing that they absolutely LOVE to do is make slime. We have gone through (no exaggeration) over 100 bottles of Elmer's Glue so far this summer alone- at least. What I get them plus what they spend their allowance on. I have found slime stick to just about every piece of furniture, floors, and even ceilings but, it keeps them occupied and it's creative so I try not to lose my mind over it too bad. :) 

Another thing they like to make are face masks. I can honestly say, I enjoy watching them use the face masks with glue. I laughed until I cried when my oldest daughter made a charcoal mask. I think she may have not followed the directions all the way but, she looked like a dirty cracked plate and screamed a few times peeling it off. Her skin was amazingly clear and so soft when she was done. Not to mention very dirty looking.

Another thing that we just got into is transfer paper for clothing, backpacks, and other fabric. Now, this is very cool. All it takes is sketching on the transfer paper, put it on the fabric and iron it on. It's so easy to make anything super unique and custom. 

So, I got the transfer paper as a review product. I had never had it before, I didn't know how to use it at all so I watched a bunch of youtube videos and figured, it was pretty easy!

The transfer paper came with 2 free bonus items. #1isg a cool e-book with the tools and what they do list and #2- Teflon paper to help with the iron process. I don't have a heat press so I used the iron on method. I am assuming that most of my readers are a regular people and not amazing professionals with a heat press at home. Honestly, I don't know anyone with a heat press.

So, I drew a few shapes to get a feel for it and it was instant, I'm a beginner-pro! It's so simple.

I drew designs on the paper. 

Drawing on the paper is pretty simple. I just used a pen. It was a rough draw, I'm not an artist. You can print on this paper, I tried it but, my printer didn't like it. I think I have the wrong kind of printer. I tried ironing it on and all I had was the backing that showed up. My picture was in between the backing and the fabric. So, that's when I decided to be a tad more primitive until I figured it out better.

Cut out the pieces.

I used scissors to cut it out. I only had bulky pieces so I didn't need to do any weeding on the paper. There are weeding tools to pick out the spaces in between the design. these pieces are big enough to get several cuts per sheet too.

Arranged the pieces.

Laid them in the order I wanted them (remember to mirror)
I put them down on the fabric shiny side up. Putting them in the right order is really important. I watched a few iron on fails that were pretty funny. I was hoping to avoid it all together.

Ironed them on. 

I set the iron to the desired temp, I was worried that I was doing it wrong and I was going to melt the cover paper into my iron. But guess what, I didn't!  It was on a medium heat setting and it didn't take long, less than a minute. The vinyl was stuck to the fabric and the cover paper was ready to come off. Super simple right?

It has literally taken longer to type the How-To part than it did to iron on the transfer paper. This is so cool to add that little bit of pizazz to any fabric. You can cover up spots on favorite clothes, make an ordinary backpack into a one of a kind backpack.

It's super easy and fun. I received this product to facilitate this review. If you have any questions please feel free to email us directly at [email protected] or [email protected]

Celebrate Summer and 15% OFF with Piczzle

Do you have a favorite picture that brings back memories? The kind of memories you feel on your face and in your heart? I have s few cherished ones that I can still feel that exact moment.

Awhile back, I had the opportunity to work with on a picture puzzle. I get to turn one of my little nieces' pictures into a puzzle. I love it so much, and so does she. I am working with them again to tell you all about their awesome summer sale! The code is SummerPuzzle0717 for 15% OFF!!

Kaya loves it that she is on a puzzle. A real puzzle!! She loves puzzles and what could she love more than a custom made puzzle of herself!! It's s sweet looking at her put the photo puzzle together and say things like "That's where Kaya's eyes go". It's so cute!

How it works is you find a picture that you love (or a few) that was the hardest part for me, I wanted to puzzle them all.

Going through the options and find which ones are best for you is a breeze. There are classic cardboard, wooden, or magnetic puzzles. There are shapes too- round, heart, and rectangle. The pieces vary from puzzle to puzzle considering shape and size. The sizing is nice, there is something for every situation and budget.

The pieces are very good quality. I wanted to take into consideration that Kaya was only turning 4. I didn't want to get her pieces that would frustrate her. The puzzles range from 4  pieces to 2,000 pieces. I love the options that Piczzle offers for the custom picture puzzles.

There are different ways to setup your picture and adding text. It's so easy with a different font for a special message is super easy too.

The picture puzzle I made for my niece was for her fourth birthday. I chose the puzzle with the bigger pieces. That way she can handle them easier and put them in the right place. There are options to make the puzzles more challenging, which I think is absolutely adorable. They are simple to navigate through. Some of the options are zoo animals, vacation themed, Born In The USA themed, and more!

I was checking out their site and saw some of the cutest stories about other peoples' reasons why they chose Piczzle and I love it. A picture is worth a million words.

Check out Piczzle and see what you think. You can find them online and on social media.

Light Up Your Smile With a Charger and Case for iPhone 6/6s

With summer in full swing, do you know where your kids are? Well, mine are within inches of their phones. There are so many apps, social media communications, and games that these guys play, all I have to do is flip the switch on the router to head count by screams of "MOM Something is wrong with the WiFi!!"

That sounds so funny to admit but it's so true. I know it's not just my house either. We have had several sleep overs and the only request from all of them was the travel charger because we can charge 6 devices at ones. That's pretty easy to accommodate.

We just had the opportunity to review a phone case charger for an iPhone 6/6s Illuminated Battery Charger (4.7 inches) by ONTA. This is a multi functional case. It serves as a charger and for illuminating.

The list of main functions include:
  • Taking Selfies
  • Power Bank
  • Night Light &  Applying Makeup
  • Flashlight
  • Drop Proof

This case has four settings for the light. low high, strobe, and flashlight. The button is conveniently placed on the back so it can easily be adjusted for the perfect lighting. All you have to do is push the buttons to click to the next setting. 

The buttons and cut outs on the sides, back, and bottom are lined up perfectly to match the buttons on the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6s. The volume buttons are raised up with a definite groove so feeling the right spot is a breeze. I don't even have to look at my phone to know what buttons i'm pushing. My phone is like an appendage.  

The inside of the case is lined with leather to give your phone even more stability and safeness. The case itself is a thick heavy duty plastic that keeps it from being damaged if an accident happens. The charger holds enough juice to keep even a teenage girl in snaps, posts, and tweets all day long. 

This case also comes with a super lens protector to give your device even more protection. This case and protector is like a fortress for your iPhone.
