Birds Eye Veggin’ In LA With Laura Marano Sweepstakes

 

Vegetables

As a mom I know first hand that it’s not always easy to get your kids to eat what you want them to, especially if you have a picky eater (or two) in your home.

Did you know that only ONE is ten children eats the recommended amount of vegetables*? (*Statistics from USDA State of the Plate) That is sad! Vegetables are so good and can be made in so many different ways. Parents need to take this seriously and find delicious ways to incorporate vegetables into daily diet.

I’m grateful that my kids have always loved vegetables. When they were little I fed them all vegetables including the vegetables that many children run away from like spinach, broccoli and Brussels sprouts. Even now as teenagers my kids love vegetables. We eat broccoli several times a week too. They also eat things like chickpeas as a snack.

Our daughter actually prefers vegetables raw over steamed (I always steam veggies). There are some vegetables, like carrots, she refuses to eat cooked. They must be raw.

I think the key to getting kids and “big kids” (aka – your significant other) is to serve them delicious recipes that incorporate vegetables. They will be too busy enjoying the flavorful meal that they won’t stop to think about the vegetables they are eating.

Birds Eye® and the Walt Disney Company® want to make sure children are eating their vegetables. They have teamed up to increase vegetable consumption awareness among children in the United States.

Veggin in La Sweeps

The brands came up with an initiative called The Veggin’ In LA With Laura Marano Sweepstakes presented by Birds Eye. Their objective is to show children that veggies are “cool”, fun and delicious.

The sweepstakes is currently running and will end on September 24, 2014.

The grand prize is a wonderful Los Angeles, California, to “veg out” and enjoy a private dinner party with Laura Marano, one of the stars of Disney Channel’s popular comedy series, “Austin & Ally,”and a Birds Eye chef.

“We can’t wait to start the sweepstakes and get kids excited about vegetables one bite at a time,” explained Mike Barkley, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Birds Eye. “The collaboration between Birds Eye and Disney is a perfect fit, as we’re both fully committed to children’s wellness and improving the vegetable consumption in this country.”

The sweepstakes is part of Birds Eye’s “Step Up To The Plate” campaign, dedicated to encouraging kids to try new veggies, while helping parents explore different preparation methods and approaches to making veggies fun. The sweepstakes also supports the Disney “Magic of Healthy Living” initiative, which partners with parents and inspires kids to live a healthier lifestyle.

Entering is super easy to do. Simply purchase any Birds Eye products and visit Disney.com/Veggies and input the UPC codes from the Birds Eye product/products.

There is no purchase necessary. You can also enter without the UPC code by sending the keyword “VEGGIES” via a text to 347639 (Disney).

Not only is this an easy sweeptakes to enter it’s also a healthy one because it will encourage families to take their veggie intake more seriously.

Does your child/grandchild enjoy a variety of vegetables? Do you think your child/grandchild gets enough vegetables in their daily diet?

How do YOU get your child/grandchild to eat their veggies? Feel free to share your thoughts.

New from Nickelodeon – Let’s Learn: Patterns & Shapes

Lets Learn Patterns and Shapes

A new DVD will be released tomorrow (September 9, 2014) from Nickelodeon Home Entertainment called Let’s Learn: Patterns & Shapes.

With the new school year already in full swing, this DVD would be perfect for a little one who has just started nursery school or Pre-K. It’s also a fun DVD for children who are big fans of popular Nickelodeon programs such as Dora the Explorer, Blue’s Clues and Team Umizoomi.

This new DVD is part of Nickelodeon’s “Let’s Learn” series.

In a fun-filled two hours of “edu-tainment,” kids can play along to five new episodes from Team Umizoomi, Dora the Explorer, Blue’s Clues and Ni Hao Ka-lan! as they explore circles, squares, triangles, and more. The set also includes a shapes worksheet!

The episodes featured on this DVD include;

  • Team Umizoomi: Team Umizoomi vs. The Shape Bandit
  • Dora the Explorer: Catch the Shape Train!
  • Ni Hao Kai-lan: The Dinosaur Balloon
  • Blue’s Clues: Shape Searchers
  • Blue’s Room: Shape Detectives

The DVD has a run time of 138 minutes and is distribute by Paramount Home Media Distribution.

What I love about DVD’s like this is that they make learning FUN. For most kids it seems like regular episodes to their favorite television shows. What they don’t realize is that they are learning at the same time they are being entertained by their favorite characters.

As a mom I feel like my children learned better when it was fun and entertaining, not boring. Actually I think I learn better too when it’s more fun then learning.

I love that the set also includes worksheets for your little ones to practice with. It’s nice that Nickelodeon and Paramount added that nice bonus with the DVD.

Look for Nickelodeon’s Let’s Learn: Patterns & Shapes where most DVDs are sold.

For more information about Nickelodeon shows visit www.Nick.com.

What do you think about using entertainment to education children? Is it a medium you use in your home? Feel free to share your thoughts.

Back to school with Crayola (giveaway ends 9/20/14)

 

Girl drawing back to school

By now most kids have started off the new school year. Some children started back week’s ago. My children started last week..

My kids are in high school now. We never know what kind of supplies they need until they attend their first day of class. We always pick up the basics before school starts (lose leaf paper, pens, pencils, highlighters…). We have to wait for school to start before picking up binders and notebooks.

I miss the days when my kids went to elementary and middle school. We always received a supply list in the mail before school started so we could get all the supplies before school starts and be able to take advantage of the great sales.

One staple that was always on the supply list was Crayola crayons. I miss those days! There is nothing nicer then a brand new box of Crayola crayons. I still remember when I went to school and my mom would buy me a box of crayons as part of my school supplies. It was my favorite supply because I’ve always love to draw, doodle and color. I even love the smell of a fresh box of crayons and how all the tips are perfectly sharpened.

Sadly high school doesn’t require crayons, but they do request students have markers and colored pencils. Crayola makes markers and colored pencils so I am still able to buy Crayola products for my teenagers.

I recently went to Staples to stock up on some Crayola products. Some were for my kids (markers and colored pencils) and the other products I am donated to my job. I work in a childcare situation caring for children at our local courthouse. The children in our care are there for a variety of reasons in Family Court (divorce, custody, paternity, order of protection…). As you can image the children all love to color, so it’s always nice to have an ample amount of crayons on hand. The children also love to paint so I pick up some washable paints too.

I was a bit “iffy” about picking up markers. Markers can be so messy. However Crayola carries washable markers. As per my boss older children often request markers so I made sure to include those in my shopping trip.

Check out all the goodies I picked up.

Crayola

I picked up three packages of Crayola Colored Pencils. One was for my son (he needs it for school) and two for my job.

The Crayola Ultra-Clean Washable Markers are new for this year. I picked up two packages – one is a bit thicker than the other. The all-new washability technology allows these markers to wash out of skin, clothing and painted walls. Ultra-Clean will allow teachers to wash off common classroom desks with ease.

In addition I picked up a larger set of washable markers and a package of Pip-Squeaks markers for little hands.

I purchased three boxes of Crayola Crayons for my job and a big box of 64 crayons for me. My husband and I love to color. I know that sounds strange but we find it relaxing. We especially love to color holiday related images. :-) We’re just big kids at heart.

The Crayola Visi-Max Dry Erase Markers are also new for this year. These are for our dry erase calender at work. These dry erase markers are designed to help maximize classroom visibility. They are also new for 2014. The Visi-Max Dry Erase Markers have improved color vibrancy, making them easier to read.

Lastly I picked up a couple of packages of Crayola Washable Watercolors paints. The kids love to paint but the paint we currently have in our room is not washable, there fore we rarely take it out (unless it’s an older child).

Crayola products are available at many retail locations across the country including grocery stores, drug stores, department stores, office supply stores and toy stores.

For more information about these and other Crayola products visit www.Crayola.com. You can also find the brand on the various social networking sites.

Dav Pilkey’s Ricky Ricotta Series and Telescope Giveaway! (ends 9/12/14)

 

Kids Reading

I work with children in a childcare setting. Most children are only with us for a short time, however we do see a few regulars from time to time.

We like to encourage children to read. That is important to us. That is why we give each child who comes through our doors a free book that they can take home and enjoy.

The books we give our are donated. Many have been “well loved” and show obvious signs of wear and tear. Other books are practically brand new.

Not too long ago I received a set of books from the Ricky Ricotta series. The books are written by Dav Pilkey and illustrated by Dan Santat. I have never heard of the series until now.

I am familiar with Dav Pilkey. He writes one of my kid’s favorite book series Captain Underpants.

I read through the first book in the series, Ricky Ricotta’s Mighty Robot. I loved it! I wish these books were around when my son was younger. He’s a “reluctant reader”. He always has been. I think he would have really enjoyed these books.

I did give him the books I received to review and asked if he would read them but he told me “no”. I guess he felt like they were too “young” for him. That might be true, but I enjoyed reading the book and my husband read most of one of the books to and he enjoyed it at well and clearly we are NOT the “target audience” for these books. :-)

In addition to action packed stories and fun illustrations there are also “mini-comics” throughout the books too.

Ricky Ricotta

If you are not familiar with the Ricky Ricotta series here is a brief synopsis.

Ricky Ricotta is a little mouse with BIG problems! Every day he is picked on by the neighborhood bullies. He lives in Squeakyville with his mother and father, and being an only mouse, he is often lonely. That is until SOMETHING BIG HAPPENS! A giant flying robot enters Ricky’s life and an unlikely friendship is born! Together, Ricky and his Robot must save the planet from a galaxy bursting with bad guys!

These are fun books!

I also know that they appeal to children because I took all four books to work with me and they were GONE in two days. The boys went crazy for them – even the older boys (11+ years old).

As I mentioned earlier, Dav Pilkey wrote Captain Underpants. He’s also written other popular books.

When Dav Pilkey was a kid, he suffered from ADHD, reading challenges, and behavioral problems. Dav was so disruptive in class that his teachers made him sit out in the hallway every day. Dav loved to draw and make up stories, so he spent this time creating his own original comic books. 

In second grade, Dav created a comic book about a superhero named Captain Underpants. His teacher ripped it up and told him he couldn’t spend the rest of his life making silly books. Fortunately, Dav was not a very good listener.

Dav has written and illustrated many bestselling books for children, including the Captain Underpants series with over 70 million books in print, the Ricky Ricotta series, and The Paperboy, a Caldecott Honor Book.

Dav grew up in Ohio and now lives with his wife in the Pacific Northwest. You can learn more about him at www.Pilkey.com.

The books are illustrated by Dan Santat who has illustrated many other books.

Dan Santat attended the University of California, San Diego, where he received a degree in biology. Thankfully, he had a change of heart and went on to pursue an illustration degree from the Art Center College of Design, where he graduated with honors. 

After a few years of designing art for video games, Dan switched his attention to children’s books. Since then, Dan has written and illustrated several bestselling books for children, including The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend and Sidekicks. Dan also created the Disney animated hit The Replacements.

Dan was born in Brooklyn, New York, and now lives in Southern California with his family. You can find out more by visiting his website at www.Dantat.com.

There are a few books in the Ricky Ricotta series and I suspect there will be many more added to the series over the years. These are really fun books.

Ricky Ricotta Books

BOOK ONE: RICKY RICOTTA’S MIGHTY ROBOT

Little Ricky Ricotta has a problem: the bullies at school pick on him all the time. Until one day, he saves the life of a mighty robot. Together, Ricky and his Robot face the bullies, and save Squeakyville from a giant evil lizard monster. That’s what friends are for!

BOOK TWO: RICKY RICOTTA’S MIGHTY ROBOT VS MUTANT MOSQUITOS FROM MERCURY

Mr. Mosquito hates Mercury. The days are so hot, they melt his flip-flops, and the nights are so cold, his toothpaste freezes solid! He’s decided to take over Earth instead. Ricky and his Robot must stop his army of massive Mutant Mosquitoes!

BOOK THREE: RICKY RICOTTA’S MIGHTY ROBOT VS VOODOO VULTURES FROM VENUS

Victor Von Vulture hates Venus. His toasted cheese sandwiches are always way too gooey, and ice cream melts in a second! So he and his army of Voodoo Vultures try to cast a spell on the Earth. It’s up to Ricky and his Robot to stop them!

BOOK FOUR: RICKY RICOTTA’S MIGHTY ROBOT VS THE MECHA-MONKEYS FROM MARS

Little Ricky Ricotta has a problem: the bullies at school pick on him all the time. Until one day, he saves the life of a mighty robot. Together, Ricky and his Robot face the bullies, and save Squeakyville from a giant evil lizard monster. That’s what friends are for!

Check out the trailer for the book series.

 

I love it!

Make Memories Year Round with Candy Cottage

 

Candy Cottage Logo

I can’t believe the summer is just about over. Not only is it back to school time but the stores are also displaying Halloween decorations and candy.

I happen to love Autumn. Not only is the weather cooler and the outdoors comes alive in an array of beautiful colors, but it’s also the start of the holiday season – Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas (Hanukkah) and New Years.

I love to decorate for the holidays. I also love to do holiday related things with my family, such as decorate the Christmas, baking cookies and decorating gingerbread houses.

Decorating gingerbread houses is a great family activity, just like decorating Easter eggs. I have never made my own gingerbread house. I’ve always used kits where the house is pre-baked, you just have to assemble and decorate it. My family has also made mini-houses out of graham crackers.

FYI… Marshmallow Fluff makes great “glue” to hold house pieces together. :-)

Imagine making gingerbread houses for other holidays. How would you decorate an Easter house? Or how about a spooky Halloween house? Perhaps you could make a tropical house for summer. The possibilities are endless.

I think one of the reasons why more people don’t enjoy making gingerbread houses is because they are not easy to make, bake and assemble. What if making one was as easy as 1-2-3, would you make the houses more often and perhaps year round?

I received to review a fabulous product called Candy Cottage. It’s one of those products that makes you wonder why no one thought of it sooner.

Candy Cottage is a plastic house that assembles in about a minute or two. There are four walls, a roof and a base. Once assembled all you need to do is decorate it.

Country Cottage

It’s hard to tell from the photo but it’s a decent size house. It’s made out of plastic.

Once assembled you simply need to spread frosting (or what ever you commonly use) on the house then decorate it with candy, cereal, crackers or whatever comes to mind.

My kids and I made one using watermelon flavored frosting because it was colored green and my kids wanted a green house. You can use any frosting you want (chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, store bought, home made…).

The messy part (as with any gingerbread house) is getting the frosting on. Once frosted you can begin decorating.

House

I picked up a variety of candy for the house. I tried to buy things I thought my kids WOULDN’T eat, but it turns out the liked it all. That is usually the problem when we make houses – the kids eat the candy before we finish. LOL!

I lucked out and found some gummy flowers which I thought were perfect for this summer-time home.

You can find inexpensive candies at your local dollar store. Or you can stock up on after holiday sales.

Here is our finished product.

2

I had wanted to make another house but it’s been crazy between trying to squeeze as much summer as we can into the final days of the season, getting the kids ready for back to school and some other things.

My family is planning on making a Halloween house. I’ve already been checking out Halloween candy to see what we can use. I’d like to find something “spooky”. I was thinking marshmallow PEEP ghosts (have one pop out of the chimney and one coming out of a window) and maybe some gummy spiders if I can find some. For that house I’ll use a dark chocolate frosting so I can make it dark and creepy. I would love to get those Candy Corn Pumpkins to put around the house too.

Candy Cottage can be enjoyed year round. Use it to celebrate the holidays, seasons, a birthday, wedding or even “just because”. It’s a great activity the entire family can do together or you can do it with your child/grandchild for some fun bonding time.

Here are some great ideas from the Candy Cottage website.

House ideas

How adorable are these houses? I love the “Crab Shack” one. That would be fun for a backyard barbecue. The pink one (pictured above) is a castle (the top part was cut off in the photo). You can see the entire house on the Candy Cottage website.

The house is pretty sturdy and can handle a lot of candy.

I love that it has a base. Not only does it add to it’s sturdiness but it also serves as a platter/tray so you don’t need anything to put it on.

Candy Cottage comes with a idea booklet too.

The Candy Cottage can be used over and over and over again. It washes off well. All you need to do is wash it, dry it off and put it back in it’s box for the next time.

Here’s ours after we disassembled it (removed the candy, washed off the frosting). Once it dried I put it back in the box.

Candy Cottage washed

Candy Cottage sells for $29.99. It can be purchased online or at several retail locations around the country (there is a store locator on the website).

Candy Cottage would make a great gift or rainy (or snowy) day activity.

For more information visit www.CandyCottage.com. They even sell party packs where you can buy a 4-pack of mini houses for party guests to decorate and keep (they make great party favors!). Party packs are only $19.99.

For inspriation be sure to check out the Candy Cottage Facebook page.

What do you think about Candy Cottage? Are you inspired to create your own one-of-a-king house?

Tips for surviving Back to School season from Balance Bar

 

Girl drawing back to school

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… 

I don’t mean Christmas (although that is a wonderful time). I’m referring to back to school time.

Don’t get me wrong – I love my kids and I enjoy doing things with them over the summer. But there comes a time when parents are ready for the kids to go back to school and return to regular schedules. For example, my kids are up to 2:00 or later, then they sleep until noon (you’ve got to love teenagers). By the time I get home from work they are just getting up or too tired and grumpy to want to do anything.

A lot of my daughter’s friends work (she’s been looking for a job with no luck). That means there is no one around to hang out with so she’s been very bored this summer. We also haven’t been able to do as much as we wanted to due to financial reason (lack of $$$).

Surviving back to school time is a whole other story. Getting the kids up, ready and out the door, keeping on them to study and do homework, making sure they pack a nutritous lunch… it can get crazy!

Parenting expert and mom blogger Jenny Ingram from Jenny on the Spot has some great tips for surviving the Back to School season.

Balance Back to School Survival Kit

Keep Smart Snacks within Reach. Back to school isn’t only exhausting for kids. Moms and dads get worn down too so smart snacking is important. Pack a supply of nutritious snacks to have in your purse for when you’re running errands or going from school to practice. ItzyRitzy’s reusable snack bags are perfect for keeping your on-the-go snacks organized and always handy. Fill them with grapes, almonds, carrot sticks and Balance bare bars for a healthy snack sure to satisfy both busy moms and kids until dinner!

The (digital) calendar is key. To make sure no one misses an activity, homework deadline or playdate, color code each kid in your calendar so you know exactly who is doing what and where and when. I love the Cozi app – it’s free and great for organizing your upcoming activities and goes everywhere you do since it’s on your phone.

Pack bags within your bag. If you’re like me, you have a huge bag. It’s great for storing lots of things, but it can be a wasteland and hard to find anything if you’re not organized. I keep a mini bag that holds my chapstick, hand sanitizer and other items I regularly reach for in a brightly colored small bag that stands out. An Itzy Ritzy snack bag can even double as an organizational bag that’s stylish too!

Miniature First Aid Kits. It’s helpful to have some first-aid basics in your bag for everyday incidents that are bound to happen. My homemade first aid kit includes Band-aids, Neosporin, Kleenex and wipes. Trust me on the wipes – they’re much more effective than napkins at cleaning up whatever messes my kids have.

Be prepared for homework. With after-school activities, keep homework supplies in your car and bag so your children can do their work while you’re waiting for soccer practice. Keep rulers, pencils, pencil sharpeners, scissors, calculators and a clip board in the car to make sure you’re prepped for any homework assignments.

Label everything. With 3 kids, and all the supplies and gear that come with them, I’ve learned to love labels. Before schools starts, I put Mabels Labels on their lunchboxes, backpacks, jackets, shoes, sporting equipment and anything else I can get my hands on. You’ll never have to hear “she’s wearing my sneakers” again and also helps avoid lost items in the school coat closet.

Pack healthy school lunches efficiently.  Trying to accommodate everyone’s lunch needs is hard. Make their sandwiches and then let them choose 3 snacks for themselves. In your pantry, have mom-approved snacks (like Mixed Berry Balance bar bars) in three drawers and every kid is allowed to choose 1 item from each drawer to add to their lunch.

Transitioning summer bedtimes. Yes, I’m probably guilty of letting the kids stay up a little too late during the summer. But that’s what summers are for! However, those late nights are not going to work once school starts, so I like to gradually transition their sleep schedules. 4-5 days before school starts, I’ll move their bedtimes up 10-30 minutes. It’s a slow process but really helps to ensure they’re rested and ready for the first day.

These are some great tips!

Check out this infographic too.

BalanceBar-BacktoSchool-Infographic_ed

Getting my kids back on their bedtime routine is really hard. They are teenagers in high school and feel like they shouldn’t have a bedtime. As parents we disagree. They need ample sleep to do well in school. Not only that they are beasts when you try and wake them up when they are tired. Plus when they are super tired they tend to not hear the alarm clocks and then they end up missing the bus and we have to drive them into school late.

We normally have them start cutting back about 10-14 days before the first day of school so that we can get them to go to bed by around 10 PM which we feel is a decent time (although I would rather it be 9-9:30).

I already try and keep school lunch foods and supplies with an easy access (after school snacks too). My kids are old enough to make their own lunches but as a mom I want to make sure they have plenty of healthy options to choose from.

Speaking of school lunches and snacks, have you tried then new Bare Balance Bars? They are YUMMY!!!!

I received a few samples to review. They are delish!

Bare Balance Bars are currently available in three flavors – Mixed Berry Nut, Sea Salt Caramel Nut and Sweet & Spicy Nut. All three flavors are Non-GMO, gluten free, soy free and dairy free. 

Bare Balance Bar

To be honest it’s hard to pick a favorite from the three flavors. The Sweet & Spicy Nut and Sea Salt Caramel Nut are both vying for top position. Don’t get me wrong, the Mixed Berry is yummy too.

My family has always loved Balance Bars. The Bare Balance Bars are not coated in chocolate like regular Balance Bars. That is why they are called “Bare”. All you see are the nuts, fruits and other natural ingredients.

Look for Bare Balance Bars where ever Balance Bars are sold. You can also purchase them online on the Balance Bar shop website. There is also a store locator on the site too.

Visit www.BalanceBars.com for more information. You can also find the brand on the various social media sites.

Jenny Ingram and Balance Bar are hosting a Twitter chat tomorrow (August 19th) at 2:00 PM (EST). Those who attend are invited to ask Jenny for her tips and tricks for staying organized during the busy back to school season.

Join Balance Bar (@BalanceBar) and Jenny (@jennyonthespot) and a few others for the hour long Twitter party.

The official hashtag is #BalanceisintheBag. Those who attend the Twitter party and use the hashtag will be eligible to win prizes from Balance Bar and Itzy Ritzy products.

Balance Bar is also hosting a fun Pin 2 Win contest on their Pinterest page. From August 19th (today!) to September 12th fans can pin or repin images of how they keep balanced in the bag with all of their back to school must haves. I hope you’ll enter and join in on the fun.
