Easy Daysies Review & *Giveaway* - Ends Nov 22

Every so often a mom comes along with a brilliant idea, goes for it, and runs a fantastic company all while supporting her family. I applaud these women. I want to introduce you to one today...

Elaine-- an elementary school teacher and mom of three-- founded her company, Easy Daysies, with her children and students in mind. "Easy Daysies sole purpose is to help kids have easier days... resulting in kids feeling more successful, confident, and independent," she explains.

Easy Daysies are magnetic daily schedules that are perfect for kids 3-12. It is important for children to have a visual representation of routine. Elaine INVENTED this system so kids can learn routine, responsibility, priorities, and sight word recognition.
Easy Daysies™ in use!
There are 8 helpful kits. The kits come with magnets and some blank magnets & dry erase marker so you can fill in your own. Let me tell you about each of them...

Every Day Kit- includes 18 strong magnets! This is the starter kit and the other kits can be added on. See:

Chores and Rewards Kit- "Help Set Table" and "Clean Bedroom" are included. Use the blank magnets to write in your own. Six small boxes on the bottom can be checked off-- give your child a reward for completion!

03-feed-pets

Classroom Kit- Great for school or homeschool! Magnets include "Science" and other subjects, as well as blank magnets.

Extra Curricular Kit-
perfect for those things that don't happen everyday and can be confusing for youngsters to remember. Includes "Sports" and "Music" and other extras.

Get Dressed Routine Kit-
this one is probably my favorite!! :) Kids can check that they have done all the getting ready steps, like coat, socks, and comb hair.

07-comb-hair

Special Times & Clocks Kit-
Great for classroom or home use! Fill in the clocks-- both analog and digital-- of "TV time" or "Computer time", or write your own. Teaches kids to read the clock!

Family Activities Kit-
help your household to keep track of appointments and family fun time. Includes "Dentist" or "Movie Night", among others and blanks.

Potty/Washroom Routine Kit-
can be used to teach how to go potty or just reminding to "Wash Hands" and "Turn Off Lights"

Each kit comes with durable magnets. If you don't have a magnetic surface, no problem! You can use the Easy Daysies Magnetic Fold & Go Board. This is great for taking with you when you travel or for kids who spend time in different households as well.

MUST READS: Besides a GREAT and useful concept, there are two other things you need to know about Easy Daysies:

  • All magnets are made with 70% recycled material!!!!!
  • 5% of all sales go to helping children around the world through the International Justice Mission, a group I already support!!

My thoughts: As you can already tell, I love Easy Daysies! And easy days! :) Most of you know that I don't talk much on my blogs about my family because of privacy reasons- we help children in foster care or avoiding foster care. Many of the children I help take care of aren't used to regular schedules (I swear by them), so sometimes it can be a big adjustment. The Easy Daysies system is perfect for my household because all kids can run to the fridge and check it out. No more asking me or feeling anxious.

The Fold And Go boards are perfect for the kids I work with. I enjoy it when they can feel a sense of accomplishment because of task completion. I know it's adding to their responsibility and pride. I am reccomending the Easy Daysies magnets and boards to the parents I work with as well because structure is good for children. Thanks Easy Daysies!

BUY IT: The Easy Daysies start kit and add on kits are on sale now! Get between 15 and 25% off when you shop now. Note that there is a U.S. web store and a Canadian web store. These make GREAT holiday gifts. Remember that Elaine makes these on her kitchen table-- go support a great MOM business!

I love the "special times" set. It's hard to get my son to stop playing computer or watching tv and I love the visual aid for kids. It's great to help them understand that computer time can't be all the time.

I *love* this magnet kit. I love that it has so many different options (brush teeth, playdate) and that it would be MUCH easier than our dry-erase board! Crossing my fingers!

Gianna said...

Chores & Rewards.. I love this because my daughter and son would find this very helpful and rewarding to keep track of helping out :)

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.

Thanks
