Welcome spring, W-E-L-C-O-M-E.
This week we settled into the season by pulling down the bikes from storage, pumping up tires, dragging out the patio set, and digging into the sandbox. How are you celebrating the first weekend of spring?

Earlier this month I proudly shared that I get to be part of the Melissa & Doug Blog Ambassador program. I promised that you’d be the first ones to learn about–and win–new products.

Well friends, let’s play!

It is always nice to start off the season FRESH. Perhaps this weekend you’ll do a little spring cleaning? Or consider joining me in taking 100 Things Off Your House’s Waistline? Maybe even take on tackling {dunt da dum} the toy box?

Well, make some room folks because Melissa & Doug wants to celebrate the first week of spring!  One lucky pinner will win a board of toys.*

Their new Sunny Patch outdoor collection has a plethora of  awesome items for spring & summer fun. Below are four items from my personal wishlist. What would you and your little ones like? What is on your “Spring Wishlist”?

Lots of luck!!!

PS: Check out the contest info below!

Tootle Turtle Gardening Tote Set | View Details
It’s fun to help in the garden when you have a set of sturdy, easy-clean tools specially designed for young gardeners. Tootle helps keep them all organized with convenient side pockets in this made-to-last fabric tote with durable woven handles.

Let’s Lasso the Moon Note: How cute is this? Even though I have two girly girls, on occasion they love the non-pink option. Have you checked out our How to Build a Sunflower Fort tutorial? This tote set could come in handy.

Bollie Broom | View Details
Bollie the ladybug will be glad to help sweep up any little mess on your floor. With her easy-clean grip, striped wooden shaft and durable bristles, Bollie will encourage your little helper to make a “clean sweep”!

Let’s Lasso the Moon Note: This weekend Shad gave the neighbor girls quarters after they swept the garage for fun. Don’t underestimate how much fun a broom can be, especially if there are puddles around. Check out our Giant Puddle Brush post.

Blossom Bright Sprinkler | View Details
Fun will bloom in an instant when this beautiful bouquet of flowers is connected to your garden hose. It’s easy to keep cool when this sprinkler goes into action!

Let’s Lasso the Moon Note: I just think this is adorable. So sweet.

Seaside Sidekicks Sand Cupcake Set | View Details
This 12-piece sand-molding set turns the beach or the sandbox into an outdoor bake shop! Just fill the unique hinged cupcake mold with sand, then add a cupcake topper and “bake” in the sun. Dessert will be done in no time! Add decorations with the icing tool or dump it all out and make another batch. With four cupcake cups and toppers and a four-cup baking tray, it’s easy to make custom cakes.

Let’s Lasso the Moon Note: Our girls *love* to “bake” in their sandbox. This would be absolutely PERFECT. Zero calories! I also think the whisk in the Seaside Baking Set is adorable. Will you be heading off to the beach this summer? I’d love to hear about your planned adventures. Is March too early to be talking summer vacation?
