Our sock monkey hiding for a new round!
This sponsored post was written by me on behalf of Lakeside Collection. Regardless of compensation, all opinions are 100% my own.
My mom has always been a huge fan of Lakeside Collection, so I knew it was a great place to buy houseware and home decor at a very reasonable price. But, I always went to visit their site with a purpose in mind. I never really stopped and took the time to browse, like my mom always did.
When they recently asked me to review some of their products, my daughter and I took the time together to browse the Lakeside Collection website and I was surprised to find how many different products they offer. They really have something for every room and everyone in your home.
Daelan (2 1/2) not peeking (or so he says) while his sister hides the sock monkey.
Our absolutely favorite has to be the Where is Sock Monkey? game (it’s only $6.95 on sale right now!) We love board games, so Family Game Night is a hit in our home, but it’s a struggle to involve our rather rambunctious 2 1/2 year old. Even though Where is the Sock Monkey? says ages 3 and up, we found that Daelan could play. It’s tough to say who was more excited – us or him!
Daelan reading his card.
First, someone hides the sock monkey, then each player takes turns drawing cards with pictures on them, asking questions like, “Is the sock monkey in a room with a couch?” Since Daelan knew most of the pictures, he could read his own cards! Eventually, you’ll draw a card that says “Go look!” and that player has to go look for the sock monkey. You only have so many chances to hunt down the sock monkey or the person who hid it wins the round and the game continues.
She found it!
Since everyone gets to get up and move around the house, it’s an active game and it goes fast enough to keep even the littlest player entertained.
Elmo & Cookie Monster Beach Towels: $11.95 on Sale Now!
But, Lakeside Collection has much more to entertain my kids, like Elmo and Cookie Monster beach towels. Our 7-year-old has outgrown most of our fun kid-size towels, since she’s tall for her age, but I can tell she’s a bit disappointed when her brothers and sisters still use them. These towels are the right size for an adult to take the beach, but cute enough that my toddler isn’t waiting for warm weather to use them. Instead, he’s been sleeping with the Elmo beach towel like it’s a blanket since it arrived.
Of course, you’ll still find some beautiful and affordable stuff to decorate and organize your home, but please take the time to look around. I bet you’ll be shocked to see all the offer and the prices as well!
Another thing I love about Lakeside Collection is that I find many things I never really thought about, but they are so sensible, like Taco Stands (only $6.95 for 8). Every time we make tacos, my kids end up spilling them and they make a mess before we even dig in, but these keep them sitting up on your plate.
Or check out the 10-pair of mix and match socks at only $8.95, which look so much like something you’d find at Little Miss Match, but at a lot better price!
