With this OREO Catapult Game you can bring back the joy of dunking while adding a bit of playfulness.

KidCreate Studio Fun

A few weeks ago KidCreate Studio in Eden Prairie invited a few bloggers and their children to come get to know them, hang out with them and make a Thanksgiving craft. Obviously Thanksgiving is over so I'm a little late writing about all the fun we had, but I'm sharing anyway because KidCreate Studio has some awesome Christmas crafts in their schedule right now. One of the first things you'll notice when you enter KidCreate Studio (besides all the artwork) is their birds, Arty and Crafty. They added some fun with their chirping throughout our creation time. The kids started in a circle on the mats and talked about what they were thankful for as well as learned the rules of the studio. From that point on, us parents could be as little or as much involved as we wanted. Most of us decided to help out a little because we were there. You can certainly drop off your kids and let the staff do all the work though. Our craft was a clay turkey. The staff walked the children … [Read more...]

What is Floating (REST Therapy) and Why Should You Do It?

It's a weird feeling not being able to feel your body...It's also one of the most amazing things I have ever felt. Yesterday I floated for 60 minutes at Float Foundation in exchange for my honest opinion on my blog. Today, I added a few more sessions to my Christmas wish list so that I can do it again. What is floating and why should you do it? Read on and I'll explain... I first heard about floating when an ad for Float Foundation came across my Facebook feed. It looked interesting so I clicked on it and started exploring the site. I then Googled "what is floating" and became super intrigued by the idea of it. Float Foundation describes floating this way: Flotation REST is a form of Reduced Environmental Stimulation Therapy (REST) that uses a shallow pool of heavy water...made by super-saturating it with Epsom Salt (MgSO4 ) to the point that a person floats on his or her back effortlessly on the surface of the water like a cork. The water is heated to skin temperature and the … [Read more...]

Triple Espresso at the New Century Theatre

My husband and I enjoy going to the theater and we love comedy so when Hennepin Theatre Trust contacted me about writing an advertorial post about Triple Espresso in exchange for tickets to see it, I jumped at the opportunity. Theater and comedy shows aren't something we've shared with our girls quite yet. It's not that we haven't wanted to, it's just that we haven't had the opportunity...until now. I'm excited to take them to see Triple Espresso at the New Century Theatre. They'll get to see their first show at a real theater and their first comedy show in one! With a name like Triple Espresso, you wouldn't think the show would be family friendly. I almost turned down the opportunity to see it because the name made it sound like an adult show. I am assured, however, that the entire family will enjoy Triple Espresso. It's "an evening of caffeination and cackles for the whole family - this production is suitable for ages 6 to 106!" So, what is Triple Espresso and what's it … [Read more...]
