It’s Citrus Lane time and I have a treat for you because I also got my Bluum box so today will be my subscription day. Woohooo! I just love receiving my Citrus Lane boxes and sharing them with you. Now I might be a little bias but Citrus Lane has been my favorite box of all the subscription boxes that I have done. Sure there have been items that have been included that I haven’t been too fond of but usually my box has items that I just can’t live without and that I can enjoy for months to come. This is my 28 month old box. Citrus Lane sends a box each month catered to my age and that of your little one. They go from newborn to age 5 so I have quite some time before I stop getting my box. If you’re interested you can see what I received in my 27 month old box.
Every month Citrus Lane sends me a “hello” card and I just love that it makes my job so much easier to share with you what I received. This month my card read:
“We wanted to help get you into the spirit of summer and ready to spend more time out and about. We’ve included unique toys for outdoor play, an activity for time spent inside, an adorable bento-style box that’s perfect for eating outside, and some treats to help make mommy’s life easier. Happy Mother’s Day from Citrus Lane!”
Now without further ado onto what I actually received in my box. I saw that word summer and I couldn’t wait to dig in.
Mayan Pyramid and Parthenon Sand Molds from Hape
These sand molds are so unique and beautiful – use them to create an ancient play scene. In addition to being fun, they help encourage learning and creativity. Sand play also develops other skills like fine motor, spatial relationships, and understanding of cause and effect (and you thought you were just building castles in the sand!)

What a wonderful addition for my sandbox. With the great weather we have been having I have already been in my sandbox. I did need some new molds and these will surely come in handy for me to make even more stuff. Now I can go back to the ancient Egyptian times and make me some really cool pyramids.

This is my very first Bento Box and my sister claimed this as her own. Its a very good size and I love the concept of it. I’m sure she’ll enjoy it as I would have if she had left it for me.
Paint with Water from Melissa & Doug
Fun for a rainy day, or as a creative outdoor activity. Paint with Water is a great way to introduce watercolors with less mess and help develop fine motor skills. Each page has a paint palette, so you can do them one at a time and don’t have to worry about running out of one color. Marked 3+, we found this to be a hit with younger kids too.

Oh how I love these! I’ve had one before and I had a lot of fun using it. This will surely come in handy for when I’m bored on the weekends. It sure was a hit for me and can surely be used for little ones under 3 with supervision of course.
Fresh Feet Wipes for Kids from Jasmine Seven
Who knew those cute, little feet could become so stinky! These wipes are perfect for before after barefoot activities or before naptime when you want to freshen up little tootsies. We love these refreshing, antibacterial wipes – say goodbye to stinky, dirty feet! Use code citruslane for 20% off at FreshFeetWipes.com.
Ok so how did they know about those stinky feet? While I don’t have them as yet my big brothers sure do. They know how to clear a room after a day at school. These would be perfect for them!
Snack from Back to Nature
As busy moms, we’re always looking for snacks for those moments when we’re out and about and suddenly starving. Give them to your little one, or sneak them away as a treat for mom. Back to Nature snacks are delicious, and contain no artificial preservatives, hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, flavors or colors.
Mommy so did not get to try these. I got to them before she did and I have to say that these are super delicious! They were so good that I devoured them in just a few minutes. Mommy is going to have find them for me. When it comes to all natural snacks I just love them and mommy loves giving them to me.
I really enjoyed my Citrus Lane box this month. Usually they include a book but there was none this month so I’m hoping to see one next month. Another hit!
