20151103_180153Peaceable Kingdom Cooperative Games

A cooperative game is a game where everyone plays together so that no one is left out and everyone has fun! Traditional games tend to have one winner and one (or many) losers. In a cooperative game, the players work as a team against a common obstacle, not against each other. Cooperative games emphasize play, not competition. Families learn to work and play together in respectful and compassionate ways. They learn to share, make decisions together, and trust one another. Cooperative games encourage inclusion and build confidence. Cooperative games are great for kids of all ages (as well as the adults in their life). Players don’t beat a cooperative game every time, so even if the players lose to the game, they lose as a team. There’s always a reason to keep working, thinking and playing together to win as a team! We received Feed the Woozle and Hoot Owl Hoot and my daughters love playing them. I am a huge fan of cooperative games and feel that they are very important for young children to learn valuable skills.

One of my favorite things to do on the weekends is bake my own bread. The smells always fill the house and are intoxicating.

I love the YeastPro Automatic Yeast Dispenser – it really makes baking bread a breeze! The 13 Hour Preset Times is a great feature as well that we have used a few times. It is the perfect size as well – not too large at all – and fits on the countertop without taking up too much space.

storytimeDisney Storytime Theater Projector

You can spend quality time reading with your little one using the Storytime Theater Disney Frozen Projector. Download the Companion Storytime Theater app and place the included Press ‘N Play character on your device’s screen to unlock a fun story your child will love. Access the story without the projector using the fun app. Three modes offer flexibility, so you can set the pace as you read with your little one. Read it Myself mode leaves you in total control by letting you read out loud to your youngster and turn the pages using the app when you are ready. You can also record your own voice for playback later. Read to Me mode provides a narrative voice, but lets you choose when to flip the pages of the digital book. Bedtime Mode automatically plays through the book using the narrator’s voice and flips the pages for you, so you can let your little one drift off to sleep on his or her own. After the story finishes, the projector transitions to soothing music and a starry night sky nightlight. The automatic shutoff prevents you from disturbing your little one when he or she is still falling asleep.

Not only can you see who is at your door on your smartphone when you are upstairs (or across town), built-in motion sensors will send you mobile alerts instantly when they detect any activity on your property. This is perfect for while you are at the store – or on vacation.

Ring is so confident in their product and the fact that it will not break – and won’t (can’t) be stolen – that they have a lifetime purchase protection as well! Not to mention, it took us less than 5 minutes to set ours up. This holiday, give the gift of safety and convenience with Ring.
