Do you need ideas for activities to do with kids? Tried and true suggestions that real moms actually do? Here they are! We’re asking families to share their favorites, to help you find yours.
With the shopping season about to begin we wanted to be sure to introduce you to one of our favorite #MomBosses – Corina Baldwin, owner of Little High Flyers in Midtown Detroit. The boutique shop has the cutest kid fashions and best toys for your kids and the ones on your shopping list. Not only will you love exploring the shop, you’ll love chatting with Corina, who is one of our favorite people to visit (and run into around town).
If you haven’t been to Corina’s store, you need to check it out! Enter to win a $25 gift card to Little High Flyers from LittleGuide Detroit.
My name is Corina and I am the owner of Little High Flyers, and mother of Sophia (13) and Ziggy (5). With a background in social work, I founded my store with an effort to support women-owned brands, slow fashion, and eco-conscious living. I love every minute of it and am thankful for all the support!
