Monkey Mat is GREAT for Families on the Go!

monkeymat

Monkey Mat, AS SEEN ON SHARK TANK, allows you to make your space, any place! Originally inspired by an unexpected six-hour layover at the airport (constant cringing while two babies crawled all over dirty floors!), and also by overall active lifestyles, this go-everywhere large mat in attached ultra-compact pouch gives you a clean space on the go – no more bulky blankets! Perfect for all ages, all places – park, beach, concerts, dirty airport/hotel floors, camping, hiking, sports events & more! www.monkeymat.com

Pittsburgh Mills Sky Trail was a great treat for the kids to experience the trill of a ropes course

PittsburghMillsSkyTrail

Pittsburgh Mills Sky Trail is a 32-foot tall, 2 level ropes course complete with 30 exciting elements including zig-zag beams, cargo nets, angled rope ladders, crisscross walks and more. Participants choose their own path through the elements and go at their own pace. The ropes course is also equipped with a Sky Rail zip line connection measuring 69′ long.

The kids started with a knowledgeable staff member who was excellent with them. He set them up with their harness and explained the rules they needed to follow when on the course.

Participants soar down the length of the ropes course on a self guided zipping experience and are able to enjoy it’s thrills over and over.

Your child can create a personalized Mother’s Day card

Capture

One of the best things about Mother’s Day is receiving those heart-felt cards and gifts from your child or children. In my house, it’s all about crafts and homemade cards. My children know that when they make cards from scratch, they are expressing their feelings through their creativity. This homemade Mother’s Day card is a great way to allow your child to show their love and their creativity. I think the best gift I can get from my children is their artwork and cards. They even complement each other’s cards. It’s so sweet to see them come together to show their love and support for one another.

Valentine’s Day Thumbprint Sign

20160116_193701 logoValentine’s Day and crafts are always on our minds this time of year with my children. As I was cleaning off our workbench, I saw a slab of wood that was leftover from a previous project. I quickly drilled a hole in the top of it and brought it inside for my children to paint. My youngest wanted to help with this project so this became his craft. The wood goes with our decor and it looks great for the upcoming holiday. Follow the step by step instructions HERE to see how we made this sign. Pictures for each steps are also included. Remember to have fun and enjoy the time you spend with your child when making this together.
