  • Time to Play: The Old Fashioned Way

    By Holly Zegalia

    I know many people will say I'm too young to know an "old fashioned" way to play. But there is a difference in the way our children play and the way I played as a child. For our family, we are getting back to basics. The toys are wonderful, and the more modern ones the better. […]

  • My Mom is a Toy Maker

    By Mary Kay Russell

    Great ideas come to us at the most random times, don't they? About six years ago, a friend of mine and I decided to put together a fun little book club for our 10-year-old kids' class of fourth graders. We picked out some great books that the kids would love, came up with cool games and activities that would excite and delight, and ran it all with parent volunteers at the school. Sounds pretty innocent, right? Yep, that's what I thought until one of the games I came up with - a game I called Kubit2me - turned into my obsession. […]

  • Time to Play: Family Fitness Through Play

    By Tiffany Bowen

    It's January, and that means many moms and dads are working on their New Year's resolutions to lose weight and get healthy. Why not make it a family effort? It's never too early to introduce a healthy lifestyle to children. Use meal planning as a springboard to discuss healthy food options. Let them choose new fruits and vegetables to sample. When you instill an appreciation for healthy eating in your child it will stay with them as they grow. In our overweight and unhealthy society it's very important to plant the seeds of healthy eating from that first spoonful! […]

  • Time to Play: Financially Fit In 2010

    By Dana Adams

    Perhaps you're among the twenty percent of consumers carrying holiday credit card debt right now. Or maybe you just overextended your budget a bit in the midst of gift-buying and travel, putting your family in lean financial times this month. […]

  • Time to Play: Turn Off the TV!

    By Allison McDonald

    I am going to start this post with full disclosure, my child watches TV. I know how easy it is to turn it on, but it's so much harder to turn it off! Young children learn through play and although they may be yelling at Dora or dancing with the Wiggles, watching TV isn't play. When they play they imagine, they set rules and boundaries, they practice social skills and so much more. […]

  • Time To Play: Holiday Shopping on a Budget

    By Shannon Shaffer

    The holidays are upon us and shopping is in full swing. Kids are making their Christmas wish lists, with every toy and gift they could ever want. As a mom, I want to fulfill their every wish! In reality, I have a budget to stick to. […]

  • Time To Play: Cyber Savings

    By Devon Weaver

    The first few days after we brought our daughter home from the hospital are, like with most new parents, just a blur now. Diaper, bottle, bath, sleep, bottle, repeat. I remember a sleepless haze covering our little house as we quickly learned how to take care of this precious little bundle. We figured that I would be taking at least a year off from my job (public school teacher), and had planned accordingly by padding our bank account as much as possible. […]

  • Time to Play: Teaching Kids How to Give Thanks

    By Complicated Mama

    How do you teach a 4 year old the meaning of Thanksgiving? Sure, he knows to when to say thank you- but to truly be thankful for something, or someone? How do you teach that? […]

  • Time to Play: The Holiday Wishlist

    By Kerri Jablonski

    Let the holiday shopping madness begin. I can't help but think that the season begins earlier and earlier every year. Maybe I notice it more now that I am a mom, but I swear I heard Christmas music on a commercial at the beginning of last month. […]
