image002

Signs of Spring are everywhere and my family is super excited to be heading back to the Bronx Zoo!   Back by popular demand, the 2014 Dinosaur Safari ride has been revamped for a whole new experience!  Visitors will be transformed into detectives and discover how fossils provide clues to what really occurred in our prehistoric past. Witness a gigantic T.rex stalking an injured Triceratops! Catch a peek of mothers protecting their nests and curious babies from lurking predators. Keep your eyes peeled for dinosaur goo from 3 spitting Dilophosaurus. Piggybacking on the super fun Dinosaur Safari, families will be entertained with […]

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, […]

About Ellie Beatus

Contain the Toys with #ToyTainer!

mat

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

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 […]

Let’s Get This Party Started with some help from Soleil!

soleil

Let’s just say Soleil Moon Frye has come a LONG way from her days as the iconic Punky Brewster. While I would love to see her character brought back to life unlike many others that have resurfaced these days, she is holding her own as a mom of two and momtrepreneur!  She just recently launched her book Let’s Get This Party Started with Target.  It’s a perfect partnership for a book that focuses on simple (and affordable) ways to throw a fabulous party!  Target has always been one of my go to places for great and simple party supplies whether […]

When I Grow Up: I want to be a Lego Master Builder

DH-MINILAND 2

I love the question, What do you want to be when you grow up?  At every stage of growing up that answer changes.  I especially love answers like fireman, police officer and doctor.  Occasionally I get surprised by an answer and this time from our child reporter Hunter who said, I want to be a Lego Master Builder.  What does a Lego Master Builder do?  Hunter got a chance to interview the newly named Lego Master Builder at the LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester, David Howard. When I grow up I want to be a Lego Master Builder (L.M.B.).  They make new […]
