Indoor Winter Fun with Lakeshore Arts and Crafts Supply Center

Arts and Crafts Supply Center

Do you have a little crafter in your home? My daughter sees glitter and glue and her head spins. I can’t seem to keep enough craft materials on hand, as she uses them faster than I can replenish our supply. Of course it gets a little messy sometimes, but it’s a great way to keep her busy and off the electronics. Especially now that the rainy season is in full force, I know I need to be ready for those days when the cold and rain will keep us indoors.

Take a Break from Holiday Madness to Travel Through Time with the Minions!

Minions dvd

The Minions movie is releasing on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD on Tuesday, December 8th, just in time for the holiday season. Jake and I missed out on seeing it in theaters, so we’ve been anxiously awaiting the DVD release. We were super happy when we got the Minions Blu-ray/DVD/DIGITAL HD Combo ahead of time for review! Jake is still bragging about it to his friends.  We’re totally mad for Minions!   Both Jacob and I succumbed to Minion madness long ago, back when the Despicable Me first came out. I still remember the first preview, with the Minions standing there […] Read more »

CEC_media_girlseatingpizza

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Chuck E. Cheese’s. All opinions are 100% mine. I remember the first time I took Jacob to Chuck E. Cheese’s, back in 2008. He wasn’t quite 3 yet, so he spent most of his time in the “little kid zone.” He was totally fascinated with the giant singing animatronic band members. I couldn’t pull him away! He insisted that he get his picture taken with all the characters. Look how little he was! Over the years, Chuck E. Cheese’s has changed a bit (always for the better, they’re constantly updating […] Read more »

My Friend Teddy: Your Child’s New Interactive Best Friend

My Friend Teddy

When I was little, some of my favorite toys were those that were so life like and realistic. I was envious of a friend who had a Teddy Ruxpin doll because it could talk to her and that seemed pretty magical. If you’re a child of the 80’s, you may remember Teddy Ruxpin, too. With the help of technology, toy manufacturers are able to do so much these days when it comes to interactive toys for kids. They’ve come a long way from using cassette tapes and black and white screens. Tablets and downloadable apps are so child friendly, making […] Read more »
