Enter to Win a Go Glider Bike from Glide Bikes! #GetOutNGlide

Disclosure: I was provided with product to faciliate this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)   

My son Brady who recently turned six, has been begging for a bike. As a parent, I want my son to not only enjoy riding a bike, but I also want him to learn how to properly ride it and to balance on it. Enter Glide Bikes. Glide Bikes was started over eight years ago with one goal in mind: to help people learn how to ride bikes. Glide Bikes are the perfect tools to help kids build their confidence by learning how to balance without the use of training wheels. “We really wanted to give Glidebike kids an empowering experience at every stage of their childhood,” said CEO Ed Mondello. “Whether they’re a toddler grabbing the handle bars for the first time or a young novice that loves cruising the neighborhood, our riders told us what they wanted in a bike, and we listened.”

Most of us have learned how to ride a bicycle by using training wheels; however, training wheels leave out one very important element when it comes to mastering the skills of bike riding, balance! It is the inability to balance while riding a bike that makes it so challenging to transition from training wheels to a traditional two wheel bike.

This challenge is what a balance bike prepares you for! By being built low to the ground, designed with low speed geometry, and the omission of chains, pedals and gears, Glide Bikes are able to set up anyone with the best possible scenario for learning balance, allowing them to be more confident and achieve more in less time.

I personally love that that the design of every Glide Bikes model makes it the perfect learning tool for children of all abilities, including those with special needs. The bicycle’s capacity to balance at slow speeds allows children to become familiar with the feeling of balancing early on. The bike continues to give them more and more confidence as they begin to spend less time with both feet on the ground, and more time balancing.

Discover the perfectly sized bike for your child with the Glide sizing chart:

The EZee Glider is for kids 18 months to 4 years old. Its low stand-over and super light weight make it easy for first timers to master.

The Mini Glider is for toddlers, ages 2 to 5. It has air tires and spoked wheels, giving a smooth ride. It also offers the ability to add pedals.

The Go Glider is is for kids, ages 5 -9, and can be modified into a bike with pedals or a scooter with a foot board.

My son Brady, was given The Go Glider and he loves it! I love that the Glide Bikes are so lightweight. This really does allow the child to easily handle and manipulate the bike without being fearful. One of my favorite features of the Go Glider is that while the child is seated, they can place both feet on the ground at any given time. Their feet operate as both the gas and the brakes. This is such a cool feature! In addition, The Go Glider can be modified into a regular bike by adding pedals. This means that your child can learn to glide, and pedal all on the same bike! Or, you can modify it into a scooter with a foot board. How awesome are those options? I know that Brady is going to have so much fun on his Go Glider bike!

Be sure to stay up-to-date on all of the latest Go Glider news by following them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Thanks to the gracious folks at Glide Bikes, One My Sweet Savings reader is going to win a Go Glider Bike! ($139.99 value) Please follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter below. The first entry is mandatory while you may gain additional entries with the other options.

Good Luck Everyone! 🚲  🚲  🚲

DIY Fire-Breathing Dragon Craft Inspired by My Knight and Me on Cartoon Network

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by the Cartoon Network Series, My Knight and Me. All opinions are 100% my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

Have your kiddos seen the adventure-packed new animated series for kids on Cartoon Network called My Knight and Me? The epic show airs weekdays at 12pm (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network and my son Brady is enamored with it!

My Knight and Me, for kids ages 6-10, follows the quests of a colorful and charismatic trio of knights in shining armor: loyal, street-smart Jimmy the Squire; daring and determined Cat the Princess; and bold and courageous Henri of Orange, Jimmy’s dad and a charmingly inept, yet passionately chivalrous knight who might not be the most efficient protector of the realm – but sure is the funniest! Together, the knightly group sets out from the Kingdom of Epic to save the day and brighten the Dark Ages! 

The series models close family ties (Jimmy thinks his dad is the best!), emphasizes the importance of teamwork (together, Jimmy, Cat and Henri can overcome any challenge  that comes their way!) and underscores the importance of using strategy over might to solve problems (Jimmy is the man with a plan!). My Knight and Me also features clever anachronisms (like Smart-Mirrors that resemble today’s iPhones, set in the Middle Ages), which add to the uniqueness of the show.

I was super excited to have the opportunity to create a DIY craft inspired by the show! My son Brady, who loves to help me with crafts, immediately knew that he wanted to make a Fire-Breathing Dragon. One of the characters on My Knight and Me is a dragon named Bad Jack. He is Epic’s most fearsome dragon and a frequent antagonist of Jimmy, Cat, and Henri. He spends more time seeking treasure and tormenting the people of Epic. Brady loves dragons so we thought that a dragon-inspired craft would be so much fun! 

Materials Needed:

Red and yellow streamers

Medium sized green pom poms

Mini sized poms poms in color of your choice

Green and red glitter glue

Googly eyes

Empty paper towel roll

Glue (a glue gun would work great as well)

Tape

Scissors

Green pipe cleaner stems

Small cups

Green construction paper

Crayons (optional)

Instructions:

1. Cut green construction paper to fit around the empty paper towel holder and glue it on.

2. Take one of the small cups and cut a hole in the center. Make the hole big enough for the empty paper towel holder to go through. You will use this later on.

3. Take the glitter glue and cover the outside of the cup. You can use whatever colors that you prefer, but we used green and red.

4. While the glue is still wet, place the green pom poms and googly eyes on the front.

5. Place two mini pom poms on the cup for the dragon nose.

6. Let the glue dry.

7. While the glue on the cup “face” is drying, cut the red and yellow streamers into strips of “flames”.

8. Cut out 3 strips of “wings” for the dragon with a grass like criss-cross pattern. Glue the wings down the center of the covered paper towel holder.

9. Take the green pipe cleaner and glue a strip down the center of the wings.

10. Place the covered paper towel holder in the hole of the cup. It should fit snug and not loosely.

11. Attach the “flames” on the front of the cup with glue or tape.

12. Finally, make a “tail” for the dragon with several pieces of the pipe cleaners. Twist them together and make your “tail”. Place the pipe-cleaners through the end of the covered paper towel holder. I taped these down on the inside so that they would stick.

13. Voila! You have a fire-breathing dragon! Brady loved blowing through the “tail” of the dragon to make the flames move!
