What was the first book you remember reading on your own as a child? The first book I remember reading, and falling in love with, was The Boxcar Children. I remember diving into that series and being wrapped up in...
My son has been in speech therapy since August and while we’re there I love watching him work on the activities with his teacher and seeing things click in his head. Since he has responded so well to everything there...
When I started my garden three years ago it was something to take my mind off the business of life. I loved the idea of being able to nurture and grow my own food, and while I knew it...
I love a fun project at home that’s educational too. While I don’t home school (and really think I would be horrible at it), I do enjoy fun projects with the kids when it comes to reading, art and...
Tired of doing the same old thing when it comes to decorating your Easter eggs? So were we. This weekend we decorated Easter eggs in a way we created last year and it's so simple even my 20-month old...
I’m a bit of a science nerd. By that, I don’t mean I’m good at science because I’m certainly not. However I’m certainly fascinated by specific sectors within the scientific community, especially anything on outer space and the universe....
My daughter and I love to create together. Whether it’s practicing writing words together, crafting or cooking, we always bond over the experience of working together and learning together. When I heard that Uncle Ben’s® was hosting the first ever...
If your kids are anything like mine, they are already started making their Christmas wish lists. My daughter has been circling items she wants in the Target and Toys R' Us magazines, much like I did at her age....
Do your kids know the value of a dollar? My daughter used to ask for something EVERY.SINGLE.TIME. we went to the store. When she was 3 we had a big blowout in the middle of Target when she screamed...
I have to give my kids credit. They’re really good at listening to directions for a good ol’ craft project. My daughter has always been this way. She loves art and loves to keep busy with her hands. She’s always...
My husband and I usually aren’t very into the Olympics. But for some reason this year, I’ve really been looking forward to it despite the fact that there seem to be problems around every turn in Brazil. (adsbygoogle...
Do you remember your favorite games from childhood? Games that you would play outside with friends until the sun went down. Games you would play in gym class at school before you ever thought about shaving your legs. What...
My kids love to paint. It's something that can entertain them for at least an hour and they really get into it. My daughter has painted on paper, plastic, scraps of wood and my kitchen table. My son has...
We don’t have overly strict rules about screen time in our house as long as the screen time is being used for learning. My husband is in IT and it has never made sense to him to keep the...
Now that the kids are out of school and the warm days are here, finding ways to keep your kids busy can be challenging. Finding cost effective (free!) ways to keep them busy can be even more challenging. However, if...
By the time 6 p.m. rolls around I am dead tired. After working all day, making dinner, feeding the dog, doing dishes and a loud of laundry or two, I’m just done. Unfortunately, as a working mom that’s really...
Nothing keeps my kids busier than water play. Seriously, my son will spend hours splashing around in the dog’s water bowl. I don’t let him, of course, but he goes for it every time it's on the floor. My...
