I was super excited to try this product. If you know me personally then you know that I love all things to do with winter – that includes snow. Sadly it looks like we won’t be having any this Christmas
I was skeptical about this product, but as soon as I poured water in with the powdered snow product I was amazed because it was like magic. It had an odd smell when it was working its way to snow, but it wasn’t a bad one. I didn’t notice it at first, but it feels cold to the touch! It felt like something familiar, but I couldn’t figure out what. I was going to say that it was similar to coconut flakes and hot cereal, but then it hit me! It feels exactly like the insides of a wet diaper. Weird I know, but I’m positive that’s it.
Unfortunately, it’s not very compact so you can’t build anything out of it, but it’s fun to just run your hands through. I think it would be a great sensory activity for kids.

If you know me personally then you know that I love to bake. Baking is something that is easy and calming to me. Because of that I like to have all sorts of kitchen products to help. Recently I’ve been introduced to baking mats and I can honestly say these are a must have for cooks and bakers.
The great thing about this mat is that it have a ruler around the edges and circles so the placement of the cookie is perfect. I did have to do a trial and error on how much dough to put in the circle. Do not fill to the edges! Make sure there is enough left over that there is a clear ring around the dough.
The baking is make of silicone and has this brilliant bright colorful design. The green color certainly pops! It has a night weight to it. It’s not very heavy, but it solid and it is a great quality mat.
For testing out this mat I made chocolate chip cookies. They baked for around 15-20 minutes. When removed the mat was still in perfect condition and the cookie slid right off. Cleaning off the mat was super easy. A quick wipe with a sponge and soap then a rinse off.

I’m very disappointed to say that this hand strengthener did not work for me personally. The actual issue was not with the product itself, but my arthritis-ridden hands. I was hoping this would help strengthen my hands, but because of how hard the plastic is it was comfortable to hold and I ended up pinching my hands when using it often.
The product itself is a decent made and nice quality strengthener. The construction of the strengthener is pretty simple. It’s not the best-looking one I’ve seen, but I actually prefer the basic look of it. It’s made of a nice smooth plastic that is very easy to grip and fits perfectly in my hand The ridges on the light grey sections are great so I know where to properly place my fingers instinctually.
The resistance level dial wheel is rather difficult to turn. It’s stiff and hurts my fingers. I think if it was made out of something besides hard plastic it would be much better. I wish it has numbers on it so it is easy to identify the strengths.
Despite my issues, the product does work! When using the strengthener’ I could actually feel it working my muscles in my wrist and arms. If you don’t have arthritis-ridden and swollen hands like me then this will work better for you. I do like it and I truly believe it has the potential to be a five-star product if cushioning was added. I am going to continue using it, but I will be getting a pair of gloves for cushioned and preventing painful pinching.
