Mom & Tot Box Swap


I'm really excited about this new venture, I'm working with Growing Up Madison, Pink Candy & Stilettos and Me and My Mini Me on a fun and interactive way to join mom bloggers and their kids together!

So my idea was a Mom & Tot Box Swap, this means that once every quarter (our first box will be in September) each mom and toddler will receive a box from another mom and toddler with all sorts of goodies in it for them.  For example in September Morgan and Hannah will be box swapping, so both mom and toddler will put together any items within our budget ($40) for just toddler or mom and toddler.  Items can range from educational items to books, arts and crafts to clothing/accessories, food can even be included if it's perishable and will ship well.  If each mom wants to include an item(s) for each other as long as it falls into the budget that's totally fine too.

Another twist on this to help fit into the budget is if you have anything laying around, a old baby shower gift or a birthday gift you never used or something along those lines you can include it and it won't go towards your budget (handy for moms like me who get products that sometimes I end up not liking/using). 

I thought this would be a fun way to each out to the moms that I know through blogging and Twitter, we can get to know each other through these boxes and our kids get presents at the same time...very cool! 

The only condition of the box swap is that we blog about what we received in our box...the good, the bad, the not wanted. 

I'm already prepping and getting things ready for our first box to Morgan! We're very excited and hope that he and mom enjoy what's inside...we especially look forward to their post on what they received and how they are liking it.

If you are interested in joining in on this definitely let me know...we do need equal amounts of moms to do this (2, 4, 6, 8...etc) so that everyone receives a box but I think this is going to be a fun project even if it only happens once!!! Stay tuned for our post on what we get and I will also be linking all the other ladies posts once they have them as well!

    The things that I see people are doing that I would love to get involved in! Penny Penny Penny! If you only knew how often I spread myself so thin because I see so many awesome things going on. This is one of them. I have a toddler and I would love to, but, I have to stay focused on the content of the one blog I'm working on. When I create my other blog, this would be perfect! I just have to wait first because I'm still building up this one! We are connected so I'm sure when I'm ready you will have even more fun things to share and do with our kiddos! Thanks for linking up to the Mommy Monday hop! I'll be sure to share this awesome idea for you. I hope you're having a wonderful week! :)

    1. Thanks! We are going to do this on a quarterly basis so 1st time is September, next box will be for January...maybe you can get in on that one! I'm starting to feel the spread thin but I'm addicted haha
