It’s Time to be a Great Pretender! ~ GIVEAWAY (GC)!

The season for dressing up is just around the corner…however, in my opinion…any season can be a great time to get dressed up and be a “great pretender!” I love watching kids use their imaginations, and so when Halloween rolls around, it’s extra fun to get costumes that can be used again and again for […]

NERF Tri-Strike Blaster! ~ GIVEAWAY!

Boys, building and NERF. Those three things go together like bread, peanutbutter and jelly! 😉 If you’ve got boys in your home, you’ve likely got something with the name NERF on it too…or if it hasn’t made an appearance in your home yet there’s a good chance that it’ll make the Christmas list this year.

Imagine, Inspire, Construct, Play! ~ GIVEAWAY!

Toys. Let’s face it…there are so many toys out there to choose from. I’ll admit it…I started out like many other parents who enter the parenting world and think that pretty much every toy looks like fun and that the best thing would be to have plenty of toys to play with in our home. […]

Raincoast Books – #PlayTestShare: Family Night! ~Giveaway!

I think every house has a cupboard somewhere and inside it are games sequestered away. Some families (like my husband’s) play games almost every Friday night. Others might rarely pull them out. I would like my house to run more along the line of a Friday Night Game Night than not. It’s fun watching the […]

Fast Paced Fun!!

One of our favorite things to do together is play games! Oftentimes our family nights end up being game nights…and even when us parents don’t have time to play a game it is VERY common to see our kids sitting down to play a game with each other. I love that we’ve been able to […]

Hop ’til You Drop…

Let’s face it. Kids can have a LOT of energy some days….or most days…or even every day! 😉 I find this can be especially tricky to deal with in the long, cold winters…or even on the rainy days or weeks now during the warmer months. So…that means that it’s time to get creative and find […]

Spring Gifts & Goodies!

Spring is here…and we are absolutely thrilled!! Spring is that time of year when we can finally start dreaming about enjoying hot summer days at the pool, outdoor birthday parties, and of course, we love that spring brings new life…cute baby animals, and the ‘awakening’ of life (except for those mosquitos! They could stay asleep […]

Raincoast Books #PlayTestShare! ~Giveaway!

My favorite way of picking out a new game for our family is via a good word from someone else! Let’s face it, a lot of games cost a pretty penny nowadays and so I’m always leery of purchasing one without having someone give it a thumbs up first! However, when Raincoast Books asks if I’m […]

MathBreakers!

Math was always my least favorite subject when I was in school…mostly because I found it difficult to understand…and well, I was the kind of student who would rather write a 10 page book report than learn a new math concept! 😉 It’s funny how the ‘tables have turned’ now though. Here I am, a […]

Compose Yourself!

We are a musical family…so anything music usually fits well in our home! Some days I even feel like we might have a little too much music going on – there are days when I feel like I’m listening to one loooong piano lesson (done by various children) all day long. 😉 Or sometimes we […]
