Summer Toys That Every Kid Needs (and Wants!)

This summer, I have been on the hunt for new toys for my girls. Fun things for the whole family, that they can enjoy inside on rainy days, and outside when the weather is nice. Here in Upstate New York we don’t have a lot of summer time. We basically skip Spring and go right in to Summer after Winter. We need to take advantage of the time we get. Since I have been researching lots of great toys, I figured I would share the list with you guys. Enjoy!

How to Make Your Very Own Stop Motion Claymation Movie Like Early Man! | #EarlyMan

I am surrounded by artists in my house. Trust me, I am not one, but my husband and daughters are. One thing they have always wanted to do was make a claymation video, so we were excited when we received a claymation kit so that we could make our own mini movie. Lionsgate sent it to us along with a copy of Early Man to inspire us to make a movie featuring Hognob. We had so much fun doing this, and I hope you all make one too! It is really easy to do – just check out this instructional video starring the cast of Early Man!

Peter Rabbit Brings Families Together For Fun & Laughs | #PeterRabbitMovie #WorldMarket

One of my favorite things to do with my daughters is cuddle up and watch a good movie. Another one of our favorite things to do is garden together. So when those two things combine in to a fun filled family day, I am at my happiest. Recently, Sony Pictures sent me an adorable Peter Rabbit themed Mother’s Day package, which included a copy of the film, and so much more. My girls and I themed a full girls down around this, and had a blast! Peter Rabbit is available on blu-ray and DVD now, so be sure to pick up a copy!

Maya the Bee 2: The Honey Games Teaches Kids About True Teamwork | #MayaTheBee #Giveaway

Maya, the little bee with a big heart, is back for another adventure. She is easily my 5 year old daughter’s favorite movie character right now. We have seen Maya the Bee at least 100 times, if not more. But now, we can add another movie to our rotation. Maya The Bee 2: The Honey Games makes its buzzworthy debut on DVD and Blu-ray on May 1, 2018 from Shout! Factory Kids. When I handed our advanced copy to my daughter she literally screamed at the top of her lungs and did a dance. I think it is safe to say she was a tad excited.

Let’s Work Together for a Tobacco Free New York – Sign The Seen Enough Tobacco Petition Today! | #SeenEnoughTobacco

As a mom of two young kids, one thing I am very concerned about is tobacco and cigarettes. They see them everywhere and my husband and I have been trying our hardest to teach them about how unhealthy they are. We even sometimes over exaggerate with words like “ew” and “gross” when we are near someone smoking. That might seem a tad rude to the smoker, but it seems to be helping out daughters associate negative feelings with cigarettes. I mean, did you know the average age of a new smoker in New York is 13?! 13!!

Strictly Briks Trap and Gap Baseplate Set Inspire Kids To Use Their Imaginations | #StrictlyBriks #Giveaway

One of our favorite things to do as a family is brick building. We love building from kits, but we also love creating whatever our imaginations can think up. My oldest daughter is particularly good at this so when she discovered Strictly Briks new Trap and Gap Baseplates, her mind went wild. She started thinking up all sorts of creations and could not wait to start building! When I handed her the box I felt like I could actually see the wheels turning in her head. Within minutes, she had some pretty amazing structures built.
