Back-To-School Morning Checklist with Tom’s of Maine®

This post is sponsored by Tom’s of Maine and all opinions are my own.
School starts in a couple weeks and to say we are all excited is an understatement! Ava starts Kindergarten and Stella starts PreK-3 and this Mama is still in denial that my babies are old enough to go to SCHOOL! 
We have done the school tours and back-to-school shopping and now it's time to get them ready for the busy back-to-school week day mornings. 
Early mornings with kids is never an easy thing, so I thought I would create this Back-To-School Morning Checklist to help kiddos check off the tasks they need to get done every school morning before heading off to class. You can click the link below to download and print your own free copy. 
I laminated mine so we can use it over and over.
I've partnered with Tom’s of Maine® to share their back-to-school products we love to use and their partnership with the Kids in Need Foundation. Read more below!

Out of This World Space Snack Tray

I love creating food fun, especially for my kiddos. So when I received a box of crunchy, bite size Moon Cheese snacks, I knew I wanted to make a spectacular Out of This World Space Snack Tray for our next movie night with friends. All three flavors of Moon Cheese, Cheddar, Gouda and Pepper Jack, were the highlight of our snack tray but I also added a bevy of tasty space themed treats that both kids and adults would love to eat.
 Check them out below and let me know what you think!

 Moon Cheese is known as the "cheese that crunches" and is high in protein,
 low-carb, all natural, gluten free and a good source of calcium!

Disney's Incredibles 2 Candy Treat Bags #MovieMonday

I love Disney movies and the #1 new Disney flick I was most excited about was Incredibles 2. It came out in June and my family and I were in line to see it opening weekend. Unfortunately, so was half our city!
Needless to say it was busy at the drive in but we loved it anyway.
Ashton even took the girls a second time to see Incredibles 2 for Daddy Daughter Date Night. 
On the last (or fourth) Monday of each month, a group of bloggers participate in a #MovieMondayChallenge, hosted by C'mon Get Crafty! We decide on a topic, genre, or specific movie to use for inspiration and everyone gets free reign to create something wonderful!

This month's challenge was. . . . Disney Movies! Everyone was allowed to choose their own favorite film so long as it was inspired by the challenge word. I chose our favorite new movie: Incredibles 2!
