I Spy Blanket Review and Giveaway-Soooooooooo fun!!! ENDED

Since our baby was born in February, I feel like I haven't had a whole lot of quality time to spend with the other kids. It seems like every time we start to do anything, Aiden starts crying or needs fed. It's always something and I have to quit in the middle of things to tend to the baby. Even simple things like reading a book or putting a puzzle together has become hard to do with the older kids and it makes me feel extremely guilty!
This week, I was so excited to get something in the mail to review from Simply Family. I opened up the package and immediately LOVED the idea of the I-Spy Quilt I received! 


I knew the older kids were about to come home from school so I opened it up and when they walked in, they immediately wanted to play with it!  I sat with them for a long time playing with it and when the baby needed fed or wanted held, it didn't matter because I could still play with the kids!


It has 36 different squares on it full of tiny little designs and pictures for the kids to find. It came with a laminated card that listed 48 different things for them to find. I especially liked that some of the things it asked for were specific such as a "yellow butterfly" or a "Five dollar Bill" or a "Triangle Tree" which is really good for my preschooler to reinforce colors and numbers and shapes but then it also had harder things to find so it engaged my 6 and 7 year olds too! 



I have to say, every parent and grandparent needs one of these!!  I am already looking forward to taking our next road trip so we can bring the I-Spy Quilt along to play on the road! 

The ladies from Simply Family are also super sweet to work with and have sooo many other great things in their Etsy shop such as washcloths, jewelry, beanbags, and an array of other fun things!

PLUS, I Spy a GIVEAWAY for one of these great I-Spy Quilts!!!!!!!
