Choose fun with CHOOZE Shoes (#giveaway)

Finding shoes that my 5 year old and I agree on can be a challenge. She tends towards glitter and characters and soles that light up when she walks, and I prefer something that she isn’t going to destroy in 2 weeks – seriously, is she crawling through gravel all day at school? – and a price point that isn’t going to bankrupt me. Non-marking soles that aren’t slippery are mandatory, and they have to be easy enough for her to get on and off a number of times a day by herself. That’s quite the list Read more […]

Experiment in the kitchen with National Geographic Kids (#giveaway)

I’m a fair-weather outdoor parent. In the spring and summer, sure, let’s go to the park or hang out in the backyard! In the fall and winter, not so much.

We have a good collection of National Geographic Kids books and they are always fun for my daughters to look at by themselves and fun to read. The photographs are full Read more […]

This doll boots pattern was my first attempt. The ones on the top were Read more […]

School is in session with NCircle Entertainment (#giveaway)

I still can’t believe that school has been back in session for over a month now! Even though there is no assigned homework yet ( and believe me, we are enjoying that while it lasts!), I know that it’s important to keep the learning going during non-school hours too. We all need some down time, but if I can have my girls watch a show that is also teaching them something then I think that’s a big win! To celebrate ‘back to school’ and loving learning, NCircle Entertainment is offering a prize Read more […]
