My daughters love to do crafts and activities. But what they love even more than doing them with me, is doing them with their daddy. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that I stay home with them and he is at work. They do not see him as often as they would like and so any time with him they can get, they really appreciate it. That is why we were all so excited for the Cooper Kit to arrive! This is a subscription box for dads and their kids. Their motto is “Making Dads Cooler Than Moms” – I say trying anyways, right ladies?
The new Disney Channel’s ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING is coming to DVD TODAY (6/28/2016) and to celebrate the release I am giving away the ultimate 80s Themed Viewing Kit! The kit will include 80s themed dinner plates, napkins and cups, neon animal print sunglasses, inflatable microphones and boom box, and glow in the dark necklaces. Oh and of course, the brand new Disney Original Movie (the 100th one to be exact) Adventures in Babysitting starring Sabrina Carpenter and Sofia Carson! The movie aired on The Disney Channel Friday and it is amazing. It stays true enough to the classic while still doing its own thing – a true hit!
If you are looking for the perfect Father’s Day Gift, boy have I got something for you – especially for those types of dads who like to be hands on with the kids. I know that my girls love to do crafts and projects with my husband, and he loves it just as much as they do. He is always coming up with fun ideas to solve mysteries with them, decorate the house, and just use their creative minds. That is where the Cooper & Kid subscription box comes in. After subscribing, a Cooper Kit is delivered to your home every 3 months – and it is full of fun activities for kids to do with their fathers. They call themselves “The instant dad-is-awesome box” and I have to agree. The theme of the most recent box I got is SPY and my daughters had a blast with it!
Disclosure: Mama Smith’s Review Blog received this item in exchange for her honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% hers.
My 4 year old started Preschool this year and one thing that her teacher has enforced with us is learning at home – right and wrong ways to do it. One of her favorite things right now is planets and space, so when we heard about Space Racers, we knew this would be a fun and engaging way for her to learn! And boy were we right! The tool kit that we received is for parents and educators and it includes a DVD as well as a CD-Rom. It is based on the popular children’s television show Space Racers and was developed in cooperation with WNET Education. The DVD includes 13 animated episodes and 4 live-action segments and the CD-ROM is filled with corresponding STEM Lesson Plans and Family Activities. These resources are ideal for kids in grades Pre-K through 3rd grade – but even my 2.5 year old daughter was enthralled with it! I feel like both of them have learned so much in the few short weeks of using this.
SPACE RACERS is an original animated TV series that provides young children with exposure to key aspects of the science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, curriculum. Produced in collaboration with NASA experts, the series follows a group of talented young spaceship cadets at the Stardust Bay Space Academy. Kids will travel with speedy Eagle, strong Hawk, smart Robyn, brave Starling and competitive Raven as they soar through the Solar System learning about the power of scientific investigation and observation, the wonders of space exploration and the importance of working as a team. Space Racers airs on public television stations across the country and streaming on Netflix. The show also airs in over 50 countries around the world.
