Bouncy Bands

Bouncy Bands

I’m so excited to start the school year with Bouncy Bands! My son has ADHD, so sitting still can be difficult for him. Even when he’s focused on a task, he has to have some body part moving. That’s why Bouncy Bands will be the perfect solution for 2nd grade.
These bands easily attach to his desk and chair so that he can bounce his feet on them. This helps him stay focused while also giving him a productive way to get energy out. The best thing about Bouncy Bands is that your child doesn’t have to have ADHD to use them! Any active learner will benefit from this amazing classroom tool.

When I tried the Popzup Popcorn Popper I have to be honest I was more than amazed.  I will honestly say I haven’t been this impressed with a popcorn popper since the air popcorn popper we had when I was a kid.

This is the perfect gift for your child going off to college OR to have sent to him or her as a special surprise after they have left on their new journey.

One Popzup Popcorn Popper includes:

POPZUP MICROWAVE POPCORN POPPER: Pops 12 large boxes of popcorn. Non-GMO, gluten free, whole grain & fiber. No chemicals, plastics, or silicone. The box is the expandable, reusable microwave popcorn popper. Comes complete with 12 popcorn kernel pouches (2 pounds). Total popcorn popped: 10 cups per box, 120 cups per Popzup.

They also have  Popzup seasonings, gift boxes, wholesale and do fundraisers. Seasonings include flavors such as Vermont Maple, Buttermilk Ranch, Cheesy Taco just to name a few.  They have even paired their seasonings with the Popcorn Popper to give as gifts.  I think they will make great Christmas gifts to the popcorn lovers in my family.

You can visit them on their Facebook | Twitter and of course on their website.
