Thanks to Tom’s of Maine for letting me be a part of their Back to School campaign.
Autumn is going to Voluntary Pre-School (VPK) this year. We have VPK orientation on Saturday morning. Then she starts on Friday, the 10th. Gah!!!!
I don’t know if I am super excited about it or sad because I am such a mix of emotions about it all: excited she gets to see her friends and that I get some quiet from the non-stop talking. And sad that she is already old enough for VPK. Makes me feel old-ish. ha!
Well, I do know that Tom’s of Maine® is part of our daily routine!
Our whole family uses Tom’s of Maine products.
We all use Tom’s of Maine toothpastes, even Hunter. (Hunter doesn’t like brushing his teeth so much as sucking on a tooth brush for as long as possible, and then shoving it in my mouth to share. Eww!) We also really like their Fragrance Free stuff for the kids. Their lotions and body washes are so great for the kids’ skin.
What I really like about Tom’s of Maine is that they are an authentic, well respected company. Their products are made with no artificial colors, flavors, fragrances, or preservatives. Plus, they do not tested on animals. (So important for this bunny lover!) They also donate 10% of their profits and their time to human and environmental organizations. When you choose Tom’s of Maine, you’re helping children in need get essential school supplies. Their Backpacks full of Good TM is such a great program.
We started Autumn on their toddler tooth paste when she as young, and now she has grown with their products. And she will continue do to so as she grows.
Now, Autumn loves their Silly Strawberry Fluoride Free ToothpasteTM. She really likes the subtle strawberry flavor, and I like that it uses calcium and silica to gently clean her teeth. A win win for us both.
The Kids Toothbrush is perfectly sized for her little hands and mouth. The soft bristles feel great on her teeth as she scrubs and scrubs for 2 minutes (or as close to that as we can get!)
Besides that Silly Strawberry toothpaste, they also have a great dye-free Children’s Gel Fruitilicious toothpaste. For older kids (8+) they have a Wicked Mint toothpaste that comes 2 ways – with Fluoride and Fluoride Free. Pick what works for your kids and your family.
Autumn is too young to use deodorant, but she did get a kick out of giving it a try. She enjoyed feeling like a big kid – smelling it and then giving it a little swipe.
At least, a parent can enjoy that the Wicked Cool Tween Deodorants have no aluminum, parabens, or artificial fragrances. The Summer Fun girls deodorant is light and summery, while the Freestyle boys’ deodorant is crisp and refreshing.
Once we all have used up our Tom’s products, we set them aside and save them up to send off to get upcycled. All Tom’s of Maine packaging can be upcycled through TerraCycle®. So cool!
It doesn’t matter if you’re sending your 4 year old off to VPK or your 10 year old off to middle school, Tom’s needs to be a part of your back- to-school routine. Your mornings might not run smoothly as you get them out the door, but at least you know you are giving them the best. They will have a great day when they they have a fresh, healthy start with Tom’s
