Little Tikes Picnic Table Giveaway!

Thursday, November 12, 2015
It's time for another Little Tikes giveaway! This time I have the picnic table featured as well as the Cook 'n Store Kitchen (Red)!

For the post, I decided to make a little mini Thanksgiving/fall theme table scape and let Norah do a simple fall themed craft. I had planned two, but the attention span of a 2 year old determined otherwise. Since the other two kids weren't involved, I may have them tell me things they are thankful for and add them around the tree.

After we finished our craft, I added in the kitchen and she made and fed me "beans". Ironic, since she didn't eat her beans last night!

Both products get an A+ right off the bat in my book because they were super easy to assemble and I love that the picnic table folds flat for easier storage. The kids have been loving the picnic table since we set it up--using it at meal times and to do art work/table top activities on. It also comes with an umbrella, but since we have it up in the house right now, that is not pictured and we haven't used it yet. It would come in super handy in the spring and summer months, of course!

My only complaints about the table are that it slides all over the place on our tile floor (which again, it's most likely designed to be outdoors anyway) and that there are only 2 little cup holders. You can imagine the arguments that have ensued over that.

Henry being 6 (and a small guy at that), he's almost a bit too big for it, so I'd say it's definitely best for the under 5/6 crowd. Norah loves it so much I can't even convince her to come sit by me at the big table during lunch time when it's just her and me. She'd rather sit alone at her little table.

It cleans up super easy as we've had every spill you could think of already, of course. It also allows quick and easy access to the food for our dogs, so they've been enjoying this little table being around too.

As for the kitchen, we already own 2 other kitchens but I was asked to incorporate it into the Thanksgiving post here. It's a nice little kitchen if you are tight on space or live in an apartment because it all folds into itself and the top pushes down and in too. It's very lightweight, has a number of different compartments, and came with a nice assortment of food and dishes. Based on size, I'd say this one is best for the under 3 crowd. Claire plays with it, but it's really a great size for Norah.

As always, you have a chance to win one of these just in time for the holidays! Rules are simple again, just comment here on which prize you'd prefer and name one way you are teaching your child about thankfulness this holiday season. Also, visit my facebook page, Snapberry Photographs and give it a like. You get one bonus entry if you are a previous/current client and write a review on your session if you haven't already :) Specific entry link info is down below these pictures of my sweet Norah.

Since I can't adjust the time on rafflecopter, please note, this giveaway will actually begin AFTER 12am tonight. So if you are up and feeding a baby later tonight, enter away! If not, make a mental note to pop back over to this tomorrow and enter! I'll post reminders, too, throughout the week.

Message me with questions. Who doesn't want to win a fun prize for your kiddos!?

And Norah's silly faces at the end? I just can't. I love her.

Nora is adorable! My two girls would love a table like this :)

We have taught our toddler about thankfulness by having her help us sort through her toys. We donated a huge box to our maid who will distribute them throughout the kids in her neighborhood.

We take our 18 month old with us when we go out and hand out socks, foot warmers, and little bags of easy to carry/eat foods and drinks. We explain to him that we are blessed to have warm clothes and a place to live and not everyone is as lucky and that you should always be willing to help those who are in need. We've been doing this for years and plan on doing it for years to come.

We love Little Tikes products!! I would love to win either the picnic table or kitchen set for our 2 year old daughter Kinley as we don't have either at the moment. I know she would love to play in a kitchen her own size as she loves playing in our family kitchen. Which at times is chaotic and not the safest place for her to play when I'm trying to cook! But a cute picnic table would be a great asset as well so she could do arts and crafts on a table her own size. Plus, it would be nice to sit out on a nice day outside for a picnic! One way we are teaching her about thankfulness this season is by donating much needed pet items to our local animal shelter. She loves animals and figured this was an easy way to explain to her about giving to others in need and being thankful that someone cared enough about our rescued pets when they needed it. Norah's pics are soooo cute, thanks for sharing!! Carrie

My little one is only one year old so haven't taught her too much yet but we would like to volunteer every year as a family. Be it at a food bank, a soup kitchen, or a private cause, we want her to give back and learn to be thankful. Picnic table, kitchen set or art station would be fabulous !

We are in a stage right now where we are teaching our toddler how to share and give. We're starting out small, like donating toys and clothes because he's a bit young to grasp the concept, but as long at it is being enforced regularly he will learn to appreciate the goodness in giving ❤. Maybe he can practice his meals with the kitchen set! :D

We are teaching our kiddos thankfulness with daily prayer. My husband and I usually lead the prayer but recently at the end of prayer time we ask the kids if they would like to offer what they are thankful for. They love to tell Jesus the many things they give thanks for - sometimes it is as simple as being thankful for macaroni and cheese but the majority of the time they offer up being thankful for their mommy and daddy, grandparents and new baby sister. We also try to show them thankfulness by the examples we set throughout the day :) We would be thankful for the picnic table so that our 3 kids can share meals together outside :)

We are teaching them to share their toys. When they get new toys they have to give away a toy they don't use anymore so by the end of the year they have quite a few toys to donate to kids that don't get toys. The oldest (4yrs) kind of gets it but the 2yr old doesn't understand yet. She will in time. We let them know how proud we are of them for giving toys to kids so they have something to play with and I can see the oldest understanding more all the time. We'd love to have the table so when friends or cousins are over they have their own place to sit. We have a table with 4 chairs but they've outgrown it and the table would be perfect ! Thank you for the chance to win it !!

I am teaching my son who will be one the day BEFORE Thanksgiving to be thankful by encouraging him to share. Although he is very young and may not understand the true meaning just yet it is very important to me to introduce him to these simple gestures at an early age. Kids pick up on adults actions and attitudes towards one another so that is something I would like to continue to work on in front of him so that it may be instilled in his very curious mind.

Danielle R said...

We try to teach our girls to be thankful by sharing and appreciating what we have. We always talk about how there are a lot of people out there who may not have what we have. My daughters would love the picnic table, we love all little tikes products!

Joellen G said...

My daughter is just a year old but we are trying to teach her to always say thank you and appreciating what she has. She would love this picnic table!

SHANNA ELIZABETH said...

They are young, but please and thank yous are a must!!! As is sharing!!!!!! My twins would love this table!
Thank you!

Becca Wilson said...

My kids would love the kitchen! My son just turned two this month and my daughter is 8 months so they don't quite understand the concept of thankfulness yet. We are currently in the process of teaching big brother to share with his little sister and also to say please and thank you. I know I am thankful to be their momma and that I have 2 happy and healthy kids! :)

Casey Holly said...

Gosh she's the cutest!!

We have our "wall of thanks" where we write things we are thankful for all year round. My four littles would love the picnic table! <3

Sarah said...

We would love the picnic table! We're introducing the concept of thankfulness to Fritz by adding a dinner time prayer & talking about our favorite & good parts of our day & thanking God for them at the end of the day.

casey said...

Oh my goodness... she is so adorable! The fact that you could coordinate all of this with a toddler (and in busy season no less!) is nothing short of amazing.

casey said...

I'd love the kitchen but either one is great. We are teaching our children about thankfulness through our random acts of kindness advent calendar (there's a free download on my blog if you want to check it out!).

I am teaching my kids to be thankful for even little things because times are a little tough right now

WE teach them to share their toys always and we also always say thank you to anyone who does something for us/them etc. Teaching by example always works best! We would love the Picnic table!

We teach Abby to be thankful by thanking God at the end of every day prior to bed. Charlotte is being taught how to sign "thank you." We would love the picnic table! - Libby G

Love all the adorable pictures of Miss Norah!! She is going to be a model! Teddy is a little young to teach how to be thankful, but we do try to already say "please and thank you" around him. We are incredibly thankful for many things this year- our beautiful, happy, and healthy baby boy, our amazing family, wonderful friends, supportive work environments, and the opportunity to move closer to family. It's been the best year yet!

We'd love a picnic table! Our dinner table is actually where we talk about thankfulness a lot recently. With the holidays coming up, especially Christmas, it's been important to teach/remind our son that we are thankful for what we have and what we can provide for ourselves daily and for others through donations or volunteering... And then after that conversation, we talk about his list for Santa. ;-).

NicoleB said...

My son is still rather young but we pray together as a family to thank God for his blessing and my son ends each prayer with a hearty AMEN! Plus, learning to share!
We would be grateful for either item. We could use the table at home and our church nursery could use the kitchen!

Dawn Monroe said...

I have a huge family, six kids and nieces and nephews. We are teaching our grandkids about being thankful by donating a Thanksgiving dinner. Each family is responsible for a dinner item. For example my oldest granddaughter (and her parents) are donating sweet potatoes and marshmallows. I would choose the kitchen play set.

Tracie Cooper said...

I have my nieces and nephews draw pictures of what they are thankful for!
