Mama Loves: Sunhats

Welcome to another week of Mama Loves! I'm so thrilled that you stopped by!

Organized, wooden puzzles!  Isn't that a lovely sight?

gDiapers with a cheaper alternative to stuff them with.

Great list of free family books on Kindle---check out Olusola's space!

Plastic placemats go great with booster seats for growing toddlers.

Bean box instead of a sand box---great idea!

If you've read this blog for very long, you've probably seen pictures of our girls in their sunhats.

The girls know that if we're going to spend any time outside, they have to have their hats on.

These i play Brim Hats have SPF 50+ to protect their sweet little heads, and they tie under their chins, so they can run and play, without them falling off. Oh, and they are machine washable---always a fabulous feature with little ones!

The girls have the toddler size. Even though their head circumferences are in the 90th percentile, these leave plenty of room for them to grow, so we can probably use them next spring.

So, I realize that the link above only has styles for girls. I did find that i play makes these in solid colors, so boys can wear them too. 

Can't wait to see what you're loving this week!

You know we're big sun hat wearers, too. For most of our outside activities, it saves me from having to wrestle sunscreen on the girls' faces...and the cuteness is hard to resist, too. ;)

We have always found ours at Gymboree. I checked this spring, and they have the Velcro straps for under the girls' chins, up through size 5T. Yes, our girls will be going to Kindergarten in their sun hats! HA!

I love the sun hats!
And hallelujah to organized puzzle pieces! That is a beautiful sight! Our girls can lose puzzle pieces faster than anything else in this entire household!
Ooh, and alphabet placemats?! Great idea!!! I need to hunt down some of those pronto!!!
Thanks for sharing!

If only my two would keep hats on their heads.... Sigh.
I would probably get a pair anyway, if boyish styles came in patterns, ha!
