Here is what I think:

My family is a General Mills family.  We love to eat General Mills cereal for breakfast everyday.  My favorite is Cheerios Peanut butter flavor.  Marebear likes Trix and Lucky Charms.  As for Little Man, he goes crazy for Lucky Charms; when he sees it in the store he brings it to me and says "eat".  My Oldest will eat any General Mills cereal, and changes on which one is his favorite.  

Since Mare bear has has a hard time using her fine motor skills, her occupational therapist wants her to work on her pincer grasps.  One of the best ways for kids to work on their pincer grasp is to pick up small food like Cheerios.  Since she like to eat Cheerios she is motivated to pick them up and eat them.  As you can see not all the Cheerios make it to her mouth, but the skills involved in her trying are priceless. 

Our family has also enjoyed Crayola for many years.  So when I was asked to try out Crayola New Dry Erase Crayons, I said YES!  My Little Man has been coloring since he was 13 months old. He loves to express himself through the art of coloring.  Crayola New Dry Erase Crayons come with an  eraser cloth and a built in sharpener.  They are also bigger than a typical crayon so it make it easy for little hands to grasp.   

We used the coupon on our Cherrios box to save $2.00 off a Crayola coloring activity on pack at our local Target store. We also bought a Dual side dry erase board set.  I really like this set because it is the perfect size for my Little Man to carry around everywhere he goes.

Now what you been waiting for...
