The Chinese New Year celebration of The Year of the Pig begins in just a few weeks. Yes, we have had our Chinese New Year cards up for a while now but until today never really focused on the fact that this is the year of the PIG! We love, ok we are obsessed with, anything and everything having to do with pigs! So not surprisingly, we cannot get enough of Gucci's Year of the Pig Instagram campaign and corresponding Year of the Pig products. The featured photos shot by @frankleboner inspired us to create our own year of the pig campaign focusing on our love for pink pig everything. Continue Reading →
Today's mom's have little trouble creating beautiful and festive children's birthday party celebrations but sometimes between our own crazy busy schedules and the quest to throw the this year's most talked about event, we forget to add the little things that make the day especially meaningful. We think it is important for kids to know how much we love them but equally important for them to understand they are not the center of the universe. Children need to learn and develop a healthy sense of self which includes compassion and caring of others. What better day to teach this lesson than on the very day they are lavished with gifts. Teach by example – integrate a “Give back” craft activity into your child's birthday party in addition the the usual birthday fun and party games.
And with the holiday spirit upon us, why wait for your child's next birthday party. This “Give Back” craft activity would be a wonderful addition to any classroom holiday party and equally brilliant to incorporate into your own kid-friendly holiday celebrations. Continue Reading →
Peppa Pig is all the rage and rightfully so. It is hard not to be glued to the television as this adorable little girl pig, her family, and other animal friends, all bearing human characteristics, go about their everyday activities. Just like the boys and girls watching these 5 minute episodes, they attend playgroup, go swimming, visit relatives, go to the playground and ride bicycles. All the while, the narrator of the series reinforces the action and humor, saying things like “Oh, dear” when something unfortunate happens (such as George starts crying) or “Look out!” when a character is doing something unsafe (such as Peppa riding her bicycle without looking where she's going). If you have not yet caught an episode, just ask your son or daughter what channel to watch!
