FREE or almost free Activities to Keep the Kids BUSY – AMEN!

DSC_1617

Camp is expensive.  I don’t have thousands of dollars to spend on camp every year and its tough.  3 kids while working full time is a hard struggle.  Every summer we just wing it and before you know it summer is already over.  One of the perks about living in NYC is full of fun, enriching and FREE events to keep you and your kids busy.  In between visits to the zoo and the aquarium with our WCS Family Premium Membership (best value and amazing deal!), trips to the beach with friends we are taking the city up on their […]

World Oceans Day Celebration at the NY Aquarium #WorldOceansDay

DSC_0087

Even before kids my husband and I love going to the aquarium.  My husband always had a fish tank for as long as I’ve known him.  He grew from a love of fresh water fish to the more colorful and beautiful salt water fish and corals.  The ocean plays a big part in our lives where vacations always involve water and beach in one manner or another.  One of our first trips together when dating was a diving trip in Hawaii.  I was in complete awe of this beautiful majestic and powerful thing called the ocean.  It’s sad where you open […]

Birthday Party Fun at Our #Disneyside Celebration!

Every year we get the opportunity to celebrate our son’s birthday with his class at school. That also means that every year we need to come up with a theme for young boys AND girls to enjoy as well as activities in which they would all want to participate. With my (now) 4 year old’s help, and with the help of some wonderful people from Disney, we came up with an exciting party in which everyone (including the teachers) was able to get in on the fun! My little guy mentioned that he wanted to have a Disney themed party, […]

Contain the Toys with #ToyTainer!

It can be it’s own mission!  My kids have toys everywhere and I can appreciate good storage solutions! I recently discovered ToyTainers! This awesome toy solution from Australia has made it’s way stateside and I’m in love! They make cleaning up fun!  Marcus loves his dump trucks and their ToyTainer™ Bulldozer Scoop N’ Store is all sorts of awesome for collecting all his little cars and legos.  Ava had a blast collecting all of her Barbie’s shoes and accessories into her new ToyTainer™ Ice Cream Trunk Play N’ Store.  I love that they don’t look out of place in the playroom while making […]

The Art of Seduction #ArtMuseNY

Met_Kids_002

There are days I miss the arts so much.  It was such a huge part of my life at one point.  I remember living at the museums in high school and college.  Even when I was away at school, every time I was home involved a trip to the MET, MoMA.  Even over the years I loved visits to the Getty, Kunsthalle Dusseldorf.  Some where over the years, the luxury of a day at the museum was lost.  My husband also was not a huge fan of the arts, while he could appreciate a beautiful painting, he didn’t like contemporary […]

Printing with a Purpose #HPFamilyTime

photo

Always trying to find ways to incorporate learning into our every day routine, I was excited to try making place-mats with a purpose.  When we first received these assignments, I was a little skeptical about how I could make this a fun activity with my 3 year old.  Using a kindle is very different than using a computer.  Boy, what fun we had!  Drawing inspiration from the HP ePrintCenter, a bevy of free printables, we set out to our task. We started out together on google. First we pulled up graphics of ABC Charts.  It was fun sorting through all […]
