Labor Day weekend in Denver- A Taste of Colorado, 31 August- September 3

The Taste of Colorado is coming soon – August 31 through September 3 in downtown Civic Center Park. If you are in town Labor Day weekend, you simply must go to this fun event and best part is that admission is free!  You have to purchase tickets for food and rides.

But, if you enter here through Colorado Kids for a chance to win a $50 prize pack (that’s $50 worth of food and rides and fun for your kiddos) and what a nice treat that would be!  In my next post, I will actually post a detailed review of what to expect and all the schedule of events along with more fun information. Stay tuned….

Mabel’s Labels & Back to School Time

It’s Back to School time, and that doesn’t just mean shopping for a new wardrobe, a new backpack, lunch bags, and supplies (oh, those dreaded supplies), it also means labeling all that stuff and labeling it so your child’s pink Carter’s jacket doesn’t get confused with the identical one in her classroom.  So, this summer, as you are shopping for supplies and all that new gear, don’t forget to get some cool labels for your child’s back to school.  For us, this is a first.  One of our girls is starting Kindergarten!  But, alas, that means labeling and re-labeling it all including jackets, shoes, lunch box, containers inside the lunch box, and of course, her backpack and supplies.

Mabel’s Labels has a great Ultimate Back to School Combo TM and what a great deal- between now and July 31, there is an early bird discount and special on all their products for Back to School.  Check out all their cool products here and act now to get the amazing discount – it is a great deal.  I got to try out their Ultimate Back to School Combo to write about today and let me tell you, we are set.  For both girls, we received these dishwasher safe, microwave safe, UV resistant stickers that include fun colors and designs, 40 skinny-minis as pictured on their site, and 50 tag mates, 16 shoe labels, and 2 teeny tags.  Talk about being set for the new school year.

We are definitely all set now and even for our younger one who goes to day care, we can use these for lunches, shoes, jackets, and so so much more!  The only thing I would recommend when ordering is to make sure you indicate how you want your labels to look and if you want first and last name to indicate so.  Keep in mind that most schools prefer first and last names for all items.  Give Mabel’s Labels a try and get your labels early to save some money for … yep, the dreaded school supplies’ list. Happy Back to School.

*I wrote this posting based on a campaign through Global Influence.  I was compensated for my time with an ultimate back to school combo kit for both kids and was able to test out that kit so I could blog about it.   The views expressed here are my own and not attributed to Mabel’s Labels or any other label company.  Please read my general disclaimer as well.


Kids Giving 4 Kids Campaign*

There is a worthy campaign that I wanted to bring to your attention.  Check out this link and definitely engage in this worthy cause.It’s the 1st Annual Kids Giving 4 Kids Campaign.

It’s easy – just gather gently used sports equipment you are no longer using or those items collecting dust and drop them off July 7-31st at the following locations: Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children or Jumpstreet locations and your kids (18 and under only) will get 1 hour of free jump, all access play pass for their generous giving.  They will also be entered to win the grand prize which involves our very own DENVER BRONCOS!  How fun! Check out the link here and more details including drop-off locations.

And remember, tis always better to give than to receive.

*DISCLAIMER: I learned about this worthy campaign from Colorado Kids and Jumpstreet who are partnering with some amazing organizations to do this 1st Annual event.  Compensation for my time for posting this information is free jump passes as well to Jumpstreet.
