With Thanksgiving just one week away, we at Kid to Kid are feeling so grateful! Here’s a list of 8 things we’re especially thankful for right now:
1. Moms – because everybody needs at least one person who’ll love them and cheer for them no matter what.
2. Freedom – so we can be ourselves.
3. Can openers – because honestly, have you ever tried to open a can without one? Amiright?
4. Education – so we can learn, grow, and accomplish our dreams.
5. Chocolate – #NeedISayMore
6. Good friends – The kind that make your cheeks ache from smiling too much.
7. Beaches – especially warm beaches. In November.
8. Our shoppers and sellers! – because Kid to Kid couldn’t exist without YOU. We love to bring gently used kids’ things to families at low prices, and we REALLY love paying cash for kids’ clothes and toys. How could we do our two favorite things without our shoppers and our sellers?
Now we want to know, what are YOU grateful for? Tell us in the comments below.

Comfy, cute, and perfect for fall!
As a parent, you know that kids grow fast, so making their clothes last longer is always best. For those little ones that are sprouting up, you can’t always use those summer clothes next year! You don’t want to put them in storage and have to buy a new fall wardrobe, so this year bring some of those summer clothes into fall!
Use tights, leggings, boots, and socks. Don’t store those dresses and skirts yet! Add some leggings, tights, and boots into your girl’s wardrobe and make those last into fall and winter! Boots are a perfect addition to dress for colder months. Don’t forget that colored and patterned leggings are adorable this season! You can also buy sweater tights that are thicker and warmer than regular tights. Also add some boot socks over tights for an adorable layered look with any skirt or dress.
Layer, layer, layer! Most of the spring and summer wardrobe items can be brought into fall and winter by layer! Cardigans and open sweaters are the traditional layering item and are fashionable for kids and adults alike. Zip up hoodies and jackets are also a perfect tool for layering and more common for boys. Having cardigans, jackets, and hoodies in neutral colors and patterns means you have more outfit options for your kids. It’s a good idea to have neutrals such as blue, brown, tan, and black. Have a pop of color like with a jacket or sweater in yellow, blue, red, or pink too! Any collared shirt also look great under a regular pullover sweater.
Warm accessories are a must! Scarfs, hats, and mittens are wonderful additions to any outfit for fall or winter. A cute scarf with a long sleeve shirt, layered with a jacket! What a cute look for your little one!
Shop Kid to Kid for your fall and winter items. Don’t forget to sell your outgrown coats, boots, and more for cash or 20% more in store credit.
Fall is our favorite time of the year at Kid to Kid! We love the smells, pretty leaves, and yummy treats. Take advantage of this fleeting season with the fun activities below!
This activity can really count as three in one. Everyone loves to carve pumpkins, but give this classic activity a twist with something safer, easier and more kid friendly by painting the pumpkins instead.
Step 1: Spend an afternoon with your kids at a local pumpkin patch and let them search out their favorite pumpkin. By letting them choose, they’ll be more likely to be engaged in painting the pumpkin because of the effort it took in making it theirs.
Step 2: Get a few colors of paint and let each child have their own paper plate as their palette. This is a great activity for them to do with friends, or as a whole family.
Step 3: The biggest advantage of painting pumpkins instead of carving is they last a lot longer. That’s why we like to use sugar pumpkins so they can be repurposed into a delicious treat for your family. After a few weeks of providing festive decoration, recruit your little helpers and make a yummy pumpkin flavored treat together. We love chocolate chip pumpkin bread, and of course, pumpkin pie!
Make Leaf Garland (that’s actually pretty)
We all love our kids’ crafts because we love our kids, but let’s just say we don’t always LOVE hanging them on the walls for extended periods of time. Amiright?
For kids who are a little older, try this glittery leaf garland, and hang up something that actually goes with the decor. We love this idea from 6th Street Design School!
Swimming in Leaves
There’s nothing like jumping into a pile of leaves, but it’s almost not worth it for the raking it requires afterward. Keep the leaves contained with leaf swimming in a plastic pool! Not only does it ensure the leaf pile stays nice and fluffy, but it makes less work for you to clean up. Thanks for this great idea from Fire Flies and Mud Pies!
