I like finding ways to add a surprise element of fun to an otherwise “everyday” kind of event.  Bubbles is always and forever wanting to play with and in the boxes that get delivered to the house, so I thought it would be fun to turn one of them into an actual cardboard box car that she could play with.  And since we’d received a few kids DVDs in the mail over the previous few weeks I decided to unveil the “car” as part of a drive in movie experience.

Make an easy DIY Cardboard Box Car for a fun drive in movie experience for your kids

Bubbles has pretended that cardboard boxes are all manner of vehicles in the past.  But I figured that with a few inexpensive supplies I could make a cardboard box car that would last a little longer and help enhance her imaginative play.  The best part was that it only took about fifteen minutes to make and most of that time is taping the “body” of the car.

Thank you to Orajel™ Kids for giving me the opportunity to share ways to make tooth brushing for preschoolers more fun.

Some of the first words out of my daughter’s mouth each morning upon waking is “Can I brush my teeth now?”.  There was a time when she wanted nothing to do with brushing her teeth or to even let me do it for her, so it makes this mama happy that she is finally enjoying it and actually wants to brush.

For those of you who love to wait until the last minute to do your shopping, never fear!  While there certainly has been a scramble this year for certain toys, the hot Hasbro toys are still available.  Here are a few of my favorites that will be under our tree this year.

Hot Hasbro Toys: Easy-Bake Ultimate Oven

Did you know that it’s the 50th Anniversary of the Easy-Bake Oven?  When I was little I remember playing with the really old school one at my Gram’s house.  It had been my Mom’s and my Aunt’s when they were young (so definitely old school!). Continue reading »

Bubbles has become a huge fan of My Little Pony in the last few months.  We generally watch an episode or two in the mornings together, often while playing along with a couple of her My Little Pony figurines.

The My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic episodes are a little different than the ones I vaguely remember watching as a kid myself.  The colors are more vivid, the animation is more defined.  But what hasn’t changed are the sweet lessons the show imparts.

My Little Pony: The Complete Series DVD Set

When I found out that My Little Pony: The Complete Collection (the classic TV shows) is coming to DVD on September 30th, I was pretty excited.  Now Bubbles can see the same episodes I did when I was younger.  And because I was offered a free review copy, she’s already had the chance to enjoy a few of them.
