The Little Partners Learning Tower is an awesome invention made for the child’s “CAN DO” attitude and drive. I know once my kids hit the 14mo-18mo age range they start mimicking mommy and daddy, wanting to help and do things all by themselves.
Josie being 13 months right now she is totally into doing everything she sees me do. Recently she has been trying to unload the dishwasher and pick up the clothes off the bathroom floor and put them into the dirty clothes hamper. I remember Finley and Ezra both showing interest in these things. But them now both being older they want to help with everything from baking to spreading their own butter on toast to washing their hands and dishes. The Learning Tower helps them do this efficiently and safely. The Learning Tower has an adjustable height platform, giving quality, safety and flexibility.
Recently we started a new healthy trend in our home. Juicing! I love being able to give my kids fresh squeezed juice that offers them tons of vitamins and flavor, and I can even add fresh veggies in there as well without the fuss I get at dinner time. Finley and Ezra have been very enthusiastic about trying new recipes and even adding veggies. This is something that they love to help me with, I chop up the fruit and set it front of them and they go to town. All thanks to the Learning Tower they can help me do this safely. Before they were trying to climb up on the counter where my sharp knife was and also knocking over the cup that the juice runs into. It was a mess and very unsafe.
Here are two of our favorite juicing recipes. One includes a small beet, which Finley was not a huge fan of, but Ezra loved it. So I thought I would share it anyway incase you have some adventurous eaters out there.
Just woke up and Ready to juice it up!
Each Recipe yields 2 cups (16oz) of juice, which is enough for myself and 3 kids.
Recipe combo 1:
1 large Apple
1 Large Orange
1 small Beet
1 piece of Celery
1 Blood Orange
1 small pear
Any combination will work and it’s fun to try new things. I added a lemon to our juice this morning and I wasn’t a huge fan. But Josie loved it. It really depends on your tastes. I wouldn’t recommend adding anything that you normally dislike that is strong in flavor. Greens like spinach, kale (can we a little bitter) and celery are mild in flavor and seem to work well without the kids freaking out about tons of veggies being added. I also like to tell them what vegetable or fruit is good for what. For example, Carrots are really good for eye sight and your skin. They seem to love these tidbits of info and while drinking their juice will say “My eye sight is sooo good right now!” Haha, too funny.
We love our new learning tower and how safe it has made our daily activities. Little Partners also offers lots of accessories to go with the Learning Tower, so we sure to check those out as well.
