Playdate Prep

So it’s almost time for the playdate that I’m planning and I’m so excited and kind of worried. The weather forecast for next Tuesday is 83 degrees with a 20-40% chance of rain, depending on the source. Depending on the severity, it won’t be a big deal since the kids will be in and out of the kiddie pool. *bites nails* So tomorrow, I will be doing some last minute shopping for food and snacks. Monday, I’ll bake a few things if I have the energy, and then fun will be had on Tuesday!

So what toys did I choose for our playdate? Oh, just a few goodies ;).

Nylabone Frisbee, My first Craftsman, Colored Jumbo Chalk, Grow to Pro Triple Hit Baseball , Super Soaker Thunderstorm, Grow With Me Roller Skates, Hardshell Helmet and Pads (I exchanged this for the Thomas & Friends toddler version)

Since time was of the essence, I ordered everything online and planned to pick up as many of the toys I could at my local Kmart. Four of the toys were ready for pickup the same day that I placed my order. One of three other toys arrived at my door a day after, and the other two arrived a few days later. Picking up my order was easy. Kmart had everything bagged and sitting at the lawaway counter for me. All I had to do was show my I.D. and order confirmation number and I was good to go. I should mention that my local Kmart isn’t crazy busy, so I can stroll in there and shop in peace.


Everything’s unboxed and ready to go. The Power Wheels Truck is assembled, charged, and ready to cruise! I know Jayden is going to be so excited to splash, run, jump, and roll with his friends this Tuesday! Here’s to hoping that Mother Nature plays nice!

Have you checked out Kmart’s Playdate Place yet? It’s a great resource for playdate planning with articles that make you go, hmmm.

      Without Kmart’s help in sponsoring this playdate, the cool stuff would still be on the shelves ;-).
