  • Host a Peppa Pig-Themed Birthday Party

    By Elaina Andrews

    For a first birthday party celebration, it is easy to choose a generic theme. My first daughter had a giraffe theme and my second daughter had a butterfly theme. Soon after your child's first birthday they begin to gravitate towards certain characters. Whether your child watches Disney Junior, Nick Jr., or Sprout, they are sure to pick one show that is their favorite and have a character to go along with it. Peppa Pig is now the "in" theme in our household. I love that Peppa Pig can engage an audience in a larger age range than most characters, since my 4 1/2 year old and 2 year old can both watch it together without fighting over changing the channel.

  • DIY Kids Birthday Party on a Budget

    By Diana Miller

    Throwing a birthday party that will wow your friends and family is a lot easier than you may think. You can also pull it off with a limited budget. One fun way that you can help keep the cost down is to make your own decorations. I mean, what child wouldn't love to see a birthday banner with her name on it? Sure, you can pick up one of those generic "Happy Birthday" signs at the dollar store, but why do that when making a personalized one is really simple and cheap? As long as you have a printer, some paper, and string (or ribbon), you are good to go! […]

  • How "Wrong Direction" Got Us Closer to Our Tweens

    By Cristy Clavijo-Kish and Katherine Doble-Cannata

    When children are in their preschool years, it seems easy to engage yourself in the things they like because they're often so cute. You sing the theme songs to their favorite TV programs, read silly books, buy them their favorite characters, and so on. When kids get older, their "loves" are less cute, ranging from superhero stories that are getting more graphic, human, and less animated to your daughter starting to "gasp" over the lead singer in the latest boy band. Many of us have been there ourselves, but we forget the sheer excitement that singing the latest song from that oh-so-amazing boy band can cause in young fans' hearts. […]

  • Creating Custom Nursery Decor

    By Angelo Digangi

    No two babies in the world are alike. From the day a precious little one is born, that child will exude his or her own personality, quirks, likes, and dislikes. So don't you want to make your babe's bedroom just as unique? While retailers offer plenty of cookie-cutter options for furnishing a nursery, one of the best ways to achieve an inimitable space that has as much character as your cutie is to include custom furniture pieces. And with a bit of creative vision, DIY elbow grease, and low- or no-VOC paint, you can make much of what you need in a nursery from some unexpected pieces of home furniture. […]
