Thanksgiving is this week. Crazy. How did we get here? Wasn’t I just shopping for Halloween costumes like 10 minutes ago? I love this time of year, but if you don’t slow down to enjoy it, it’s easy to miss. I do know from experience, that if you’re prepared ahead of time, you really can be less stressed.
You guys, you have to try some of Rebel Green’s products. I know you will love how they work and what the company stands for. Made in Wisconsin, they’re vegan, never tested on animals and made with either natural or organic ingredients. And it’s all affordable! Which is the name of the game for pretty much all of us.
I like the idea of interactive Hot Wheels because it’s a new take on a popular toy for kids. It keeps them thinking and can involve the whole family. What a fun way to rev up game night! Osmo Hot Wheels MindRacers is designed for boys and girls ages 7+.
If you’re looking for some quick and fun Thanksgiving crafts for your kids, I have two you may like. Not only are they great for any age, but they are ones the whole family can enjoy together.
There was a time when my husband and I would travel to New York City two times a year to enjoy the Big Apple. We’d catch a baseball game, a Broadway show or just check out the holiday lights. Any time I find something New York city related, I immediately think of our memories and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.
Lately, we’ve been enjoying this wonderful new book called Maverick and Me. It was written by ASPCA Ambassador Katherine Schwarzenegger and emphasizes the importance of dog adoption while empowering kids to advocate for animals in need.
If I can be honest, as much as I love to cook, I struggle getting dinner together these days. Some nights I actually make something like baked risotto with chicken, other times I will use my slow cooker, and then there are the nights I make baked chicken nuggets and fries. Those nights are my favorite. Why? It’s easy.
I always have a snack on hand for school pickup, so my kids can eat it on the way home and have more time to play outside. Some ideas include cheese sticks, cereal bars, granola bars, bananas or apples. If you want to get festive with a snack idea, check out Entenmann’s® Little Bites® Pumpkin Muffins.
All it takes is one of the kids to have the sniffles, and then we all get it. I know the pattern well and I’m always the last one to get to the illness. I’m not a doctor, but I do know my needs during cold and flu season.
Fall lovers rejoice! It is our favorite time of year and we can now scream it from the rooftops. The crafts I picked this year are easy enough for preschoolers, but younger school-aged children would enjoy them, too. They just won’t need as much assistance.
After having four kids I’ve become a pro-packer and it doesn’t take me long to replenish my diaper bags’ contents after a day of use. Of course, what’s inside the bag will vary based on how old your child is. But, I thought I’d share my list of diaper bag essentials.
