One of my greatest sources of pride as a writer is being part of the Kid Blogger Network.
The KBN is a fantastic group of parents, grandparents, educators, and other care providers.
We are a passionate bunch and it shows in the effort we put into our children.
KBNers are well known worldwide as having some of the most creative and resourceful play ideas for kids.
So it just makes sense that we should write a book about play!
Myself and 93 other members of the Kid Blogger Network did just that, and here it is.
A few months ago my children were given some kinetic sand for their birthdays. The texture of this stuff was fantastic, it was just like sand except it held shape and it was far easier to clean up. I immediately fell in love with kinetic sand, but still had no idea how to play with it.
So when I had the opportunity to read a book titled “35 Awesome Kinetic Sand Activities for Kids” (by Dyan Robson) I was excited.
Hello. Today i am going to introduce you to a toy line, Minimates, distributed by Diamond Select Toys. If you have read my previous guest post where LittleMan did a review, you have already seen what these toys look like. For those that haven’t read that post, here is what a very basic Minimate looks like.
We are in the midst of planning a Wild Kratts party for LittleMan and SunnyGirl’s combined birthdays.
Part of the party favor that the other children will receive are creature power suit gloves. (more…)
Disclosure: I was sent a Roominate Studio play set to write this review. All thoughts offered in this review are my own.
As most parents know, getting more girls interested in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) is a hot button issue right now. The need for females in these fields of study is obvious, the path to getting more women scientists and women engineers is less obvious. Many newer products are trying to entice the younger generation’s interest with STEM toys which are specially designed to appeal to young girls. One such product is the Roominate Studio, just one of several Roominate play sets on the market today. Roominate was designed by two female engineers, you can read more about how their product came to be on their website.
