I can’t tell you how handy these SweetSpot lace covers are for soccer cleats. My kids hate to tie their shoes and they are constantly untied.

This highly-reviewed Exploding Kittens Game has been a hit for kids ages 7 and up. It has a simple concept, but the kids really get a kick out of the fun cards. In this highly-strategic, kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette, players draw cards until someone draws an Exploding Kitten, at which point they explode, they are dead, and they are out of the game — unless that player has a Defuse card, which can defuse the Kitten using things like laser pointers, belly rubs, and catnip sandwiches. All of the other cards in the deck are used to move, mitigate, or avoid the Exploding Kittens. Be sure to order the family-friendly version for your kids.

Drop this fun, Tangle-Free Toy Parachute and watch this tiny parachuter glide down to the ground.

I had so much fun with Mad Libs as a kid and my middle son just laughs and laughs at these. He also loves that there are boy-themed ones that are perfect for him.

My kids’ school requires lots of nightly reading and book reports and what a fun way to mark your page.
