Chuggington Rocky Ridge Roller Coaster

Chuggington Megabuild Junction: Rocky Ridge Roller Coaster + GIVEAWAY

Wesley is currently very much obsessed with trains.  If it is a train, he loves it which is why we had a train theme for Wesley's 2nd birthday last month. We do have several different types of train sets already since my oldest son Lucian has always loved them as well. When I was offered some playsets in order to try out the new Megabuild Junction, I could hardly say no since we had never tried Chuggington sets. Megabuild Junction was created to be a source of inspiration. Now you can get more from Chuggington StackTrack™ playsets by using multiple sets to create an awesome build.  You can get step-by-step instructions to create Megabuilds by combining StackTrack and die-cast train sets. You can also see what their designers and other … [Read More...]

Pinypon Aqua Park Adventures7

Springtime Fun with Pinypon Aqua Park Adventures Playset

For my children's spring break this year we decided to go to a hotel nearby with an indoor waterpark.  I really wasn't sure how they would like it.  I actually expected them to be afraid of the water slides and dumping water.  Thankfully I was wrong.  My two older children LOVED it.  They both went down the huge slide with their Dad a few times and floated in the lazy river and they must have gone down the smaller slide about 100 times each.  When I was recently sent the new Pinypon Aqua Park Adventures Playset (MSRP $24.99) I knew my kids would love it.  It allows them to relive their spring break adventures at home while using their imaginations. When those April showers strike outside, take a trip to a waterpark inside and make a … [Read More...]

Fuzzy Lamb Paper Plate Craft Tutorial

There's nothing quite as sweet as a little lamb. I have three stuffed lambs in memory of my babies so I have a soft spot for them I guess. I created this craft for my Tuesday night church group kiddos and I think they came out pretty cute. This one is simple and fun and oh so fuzzy. MATERIALS Paper plate Construction paper Pencil or marker Scissors (safety scissors for little ones) Stapler Cotton balls Glue of your choice *Optional: Googly eye DIRECTIONS 1) Prepare the construction paper for your child first. I used some common household items to trace the shapes for each part of the lamb. The head was a small bowl. The legs were a hand sanitizer bottle. The others were simply drawn on the page and of course you … [Read More...]

Ranch Chicken Tenders with Corn Flakes

Crunchy Ranch Chicken Tenders Recipe

I admit it.  I make a lot of the same things, over and over again for dinner. It really (no,  really) isn't because I want to. It is because my kids are on the picky side and don't typically like new foods. Or too flavorful of foods. Or spicy foods. Or foods with a lot of vegetables. You … [Read More...]
