Disney Makes Brushing Fun Again

Us moms at LifeMinute know all too well the challenges of getting our kids to brush their teeth. But getting them to brush for the recommended 2 minutes by the dentist seems impossible. Megan Meany to the rescue…


She found this amazing app from Oral B that puts your little ones to the test with their Disney Magic Timer App. Basically they have to brush for 2 minutes all while they watch their favorite characters appear before their eyes. It keeps them engaged and gets them to actually brush longer.

Breakfast in Bed, Whole Trade Style

In our search to find a unique experience to gift mom this Mother’s Day, our good friend Elaine D’Farley reminded us about the gesture of breakfast in bed.


It was genius! What mom wouldn’t want to wake up to a delicious omelet, fruit salad, tea, coffee and of course  flowers on the side. But the best part about this breakfast is that the ingredients are all Whole Trade from Whole Foods Market. So we feel good about taking care of mom on her special day and at the same time also taking care of farm workers and their families in other countries too.

It’s the gift that keeps on giving.

Rainbow of Smiles Stocking Stuffer

A few of us on the LM Team are moms and it’s hilarious to hear the stories about trying to get the little ones to brush their teeth. We’ve tried it all from cute charactered brushes to bribing with candy (defeats the purpose of brushing, but hey, we’re trying) and most of us are still having a hard time.


But we may have found a solution…G-U-M Crayola toothpaste for kids comes in 3 different squeezable flavors that will make your kid actually want to brush his teeth. Perfect stocking stuffer too.
