Change What you Chew with PUR! ~ GIVEAWAY!

Gum was one of my favorite “treats” when I was a teen and young adult. In fact, it was my favorite…right on up to the day that I realized how much sugar, coloring and other unhealthy ingredients were in it. After that I just couldn’t enjoy it as much as I had before, so the […]

The LEGO Batman movie is a favorite around here – especially with the boys! 😉 My oldest son is probably the biggest fan and has enjoyed watching the movie quite a few times, building his own re-creations of all kinds of stuff from the movie, listening to the sound track, and most recently, reading about […]

Scholastic Monday ~ Thank You, Mr. Panda

“Thank you” is such a short phrase. Only 2 little words. It doesn’t take long to say and it seems so simple, but I’ve heard over and over again how meaningful those two words are. Despite the fact that they are “only” 2 words, they carry a wealth of meaning that can be tough to describe. […]

Blend It…Perfectly! ~ GIVEAWAY!

The great thing about being creative is that there are no rules. It’s a time when kids can doodle, draw, build, paint and express themselves in their very own unique way.
