How are Your Kids Manners?

{I was provided with a complimentary product to review. All opinions are my own and 100% honest} I like to think that my kids have pretty good manners. But I do know that they could also improve. They have made me cringe on way more then one occasion by saying something totally rude or by forgetting to say ‘please’ or ‘thank you’. While we talk a lot about good manners and the right ways to behave, it is never a {Read More}

Having fun while Learning with Super Duper Publications!

I am always looking for ways for us to have fun as a family. If my kids learn a little something at the same time, that is a huge bonus. It has been my experience that my kids learn best when they are having fun (and when they don’t always know they are learning) so our game cabinet is filled with many games that teach. When I saw the games from Super Duper Publications I knew that they would be {Read More}

Have Fun with Funnybone Toys!

My kids always get to have all the fun in our house. They have tons of games, toys, and each other to play with all day long. And I will admit that I feel left out on occasion. I love to play board and card games, but lets face it — while Candyland is awesome, there are only so many times in one week I can play that game! I need something that challenges my mind a little bit, but {Read More}

Feed The Woozle {Family Game}

My kids love to play games. V has been an avid board gamer for the past 2 years, and E is finally old enough that he can join in the fun! But finding a game that both kids want to play can be a bit of a challenge. V doesn’t want to play anything she deems a “baby game” and E can’t play most of the games that she likes — he just isn’t big enough to really get how {Read More}

Memorial Day Word Game: teach spelling + communication! {Guest Post}

Shara Lawrence-Weiss, the fabulous lady behind Mommy Perks, has written a fantastic post that combines honoring Memorial Day with teaching your child memory skills, new vocabulary words, and providing spelling practice! I greatly enjoy reading Shara’s creative, sometimes out of the box, way of thinking and approach to parenting, and I have found many new projects to do with my kids, as well as new ways to approach both tricky and everyday situations that all parents face. In addition to {Read More}

GoGo Mongo! {Review}

I love my iPhone. I think that I would be totally lost without. The organization, the games, the ease of use… oh yea, and that it is the perfect-always-with-me-item to entertain my kids when we have a long time to wait (traffic jam, restaurant, doctors office). One of our newest iPhone apps is GoGo Mongo! and it is tons of fun! GoGo Mongo! features a really cute little imaginary monster (or at least that is how I would classify him) {Read More}

About the Discover Garden Game (as quoted from the website): Welcome to a whimsical garden of fun and adventure. Flip over a card to reveal what colorful bug, lost {Read More}

Scrabble Flash {Review and Giveaway} (CLOSED)

I have never been very good at Scrabble … truth be told, I am a terrible speller. But my moms loves all the Scrabble games, and I can remember playing them with her when I was younger. Scrabble Flash is a new and exciting take on the traditional game – and can be played alone or with other players. When the Scrabble Flash game arrived last week, I was a little intimidated to play against anyone else (bad speller, remember??) {Read More}
