Summer Learning Challenge with Lakeshore Learning!

IMG_0371

For some homes, like ours, summer is already under way.  It has only been a week and already my kids are going bat crazy.  While they are definitely not looking for a school like environment — Its summer break Mom!!! — that doesn’t mean mom and dad can’t slip in a little fun learning here and there. We love Lakeshore Learning products for this very reason.  My children love getting new toys! Really, who doesn’t? And who is telling them that they’re learning toys? NOT ME! In all honesty though, when we go to our local Lakeshore Learning store, my […]

Get Out To See High Strung! #HighStrung

High Strung

It’s a movie about passion, excitement, endurance and motivation. The characters reek of talent, drive, and commitment. All of this and more is what you will see when you check out High Strung, in theaters this weekend. The film tells a story about a young dancer named Ruby who comes to New York to live her dream of being a classically-trained dancer at a prestigious school. She eventually crosses paths with a young, British violinist named Johnnie who’s musical talents are recognized only in the tunnels of the NY subways.  The two artists, who come from two entirely different worlds, […]

IMG_3929

A little snow wasn’t going to stop my little man and his best girl from catching up with Emmet, Wyldstyle, Unikitty, MetalBeard and Benny at the uber fun LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Westchester. What have they been up to since their blockbuster movie where everything was left AWESOME!? The sequel to the movie won’t hit theaters until 2018 and that’s LONG while away. I won’t spoil the fun, but The LEGO Movie – 4D A New Adventure has made its official debut and is showing at a LEGOLAND Discovery Center near you. Playing several times throughout the day, you don’t want […]

Educational Gaming With @LeapFrogOfficial #LeapTV #LeapFrogMomSquad

leap

I’ve been reluctant to introduce gaming systems to my kids for the longest time.  Sure they can navigate my smart phone better than me at this point, and even my three-year-old knows how to swipe into whatever app he is interested in playing, but my husband and I really try to limit TV time with our children and video gaming through the TV seemed to be a mind-numbing activity that I was hoping to keep far away from our household. When my five-year-old heard (through the ‘kindergarten grape vine’) about something called #LeapTV, it was all he could talk about. […]

Sesame Street Live Returns to NYC with “Let’s Dance!” (GIVEAWAY: Win a Family 4-pack of Tickets!!)

Sesame Street has always been huge in our house. For the last five years (since our first was born) our children (and even their parents) have loved watching our favorite Sesame Street characters in the many clever parodies and skits that keep our kids entertained and engaged. It’s equally exciting to see these characters come to life when Sesame Street Live! comes to town. We have taken our children to the shows in the past and regardless of their ages, it is always a memorable experience for everyone. This year’s performance is called Sesame Street Live! “Let’s Dance!” and is […]

GIVEAWAY: The Berenstain Bears LIVE! Family Matters the Musical in NYC!!

BerenstainBears

Do you remember your favorite childhood stories? I can recall countless Berenstain adventures that I loved hearing about at bedtime. My favorite book as a child was Inside Outside Upside Down, an entertaining story about a sneaky bear cub, that I now get to read to my kids. While there are so many new characters out there to impress my children these days, I often find that the classics still keep them engaged and entertained. My childrens’ minds explode with each lesson that they learn through reading. The Berenstain Bears are a large part of our bedtime story telling and the kids love following Brother […]
