As a family in the horse industry, we tend to spend a lot of time on the road. Or an airplanes. It\’s great to finally arrive at the horse show and let the kids run around to play and burn off some steam. But what do you do during those hours of confinement in the car or airplane? When the novelty of movies and \”Eye Spy\” has worn off, stickers, project kits, and activity gifts from Peaceable Kingdom are the answer!
We stumbled upon products from Peaceable Kingdom just before we were to embark on our four-day drive from Canada to Fort Worth, Texas, for the NRCHA Celebration of Champions, earlier this year. And let me tell you, I was so thankful to discover them.
Peaceable Kingdom\’s mission is to: Make good, do good, be good!
Their fun craft kits, sticker activity sets, games and cards aim to educate, stimulate and inspire. Plus as a parent, I can feel good purchasing their products because the company strives to use sustainable materials whenever they can, such as recycled papers, soy-based inks, and corn-based plastics. Their products are great for occupying kids in a healthy way, especially during times like long car rides. However, should you choose to sit down and watch what your kids do with some of these kits, products from Peaceable Kingdom help connect you to the children in your life, and kids to each other.
The Horses Sticker Fun kit is one of our very favorites. Reusable cling stickers of horses running, mare with foals, saddles, bridles and scenes in the barn and pasture make this an activity my kids will go back to again and again.
Peaceable Kingdom came out with some new products this summer and we were lucky enough to get the opportunity to test some of them out! The Silly Pets Flutter stickers were a big hit with our daughter. With images featuring cute kittens and puppies, she could move the sticker and watch it change before her eyes! With bowler hats, valentines signs and a myriad of other antics, the silly pets act ridiculous as the images change in these fun stickers.
Since our son is a HUGE tractor fan, the UNDER CONSTRUCTION kit is his all-time favorite. Each of these vinyl sticker kits are great, on-the-go packages that are ideal to take into the car, on a plane, into a restaurant, or anywhere you might want an engaging activity that’s easy to start and easy to clean up. Just toss everything back into the handy carry-along tote and go!
The Rainbow Ponies Kit was a huge hit with all the little flower girls at a wedding we attended this summer. When it was time for the adults to sit down and enjoy a lobster dinner, I was incredibly pleased when my daughter brought this one out of her backpack to show the others.
The girls decorated the kits shimmery pink and purple ponies and took turns playing with them in a magical rainbow land. With 29 shiny foil stickers, they had the option to add wings, tails, and neck wreaths to the horses, then decorate the scene with shiny foil stickers. It was fabulous.
And I had a chance to
enjoy savor, lobster, for the first time in three years.
Stay tuned for upcoming Christmas gift ideas from Peaceable Kingdom (because they are excellent stocking stuffers!) and an exciting giveaway your kidlets won\’t want to miss.
