Give your kids the fun of a “family adventure” with Imaginary Friends interactive series

 

Imaginary Friends_Reading

I have always loved to read. I can’t imagine a world without books. For me, books opened up a whole world of possibilities. Books took me on grand adventures. Books inspired me to want to do things and see places around the world.

I love books so much that I saved my favorite books from my childhood. When I became a mom I read my favorite books to my kids. They are teenagers now but I still have their favorite books from when they were younger in hopes that they will read them to their kids one day.

I don’t think kids read as much as they used to. Sadly, I think most kids prefer to play on their parents tablets and smartphones instead of picking up a book, or even going outside to play.

Imagine if there was a way to combine reading, fun activities (some of which can be done outside), as well as an online component to satisfy today’s technology driven youth. There is! It’s called Imaginary Friend Books.

Imaginary Friends Books takes reading to a whole new level. Not only will children read about fun and exciting adventures they will also be a part of the story.

This brief video explains more about this exciting new way to enjoy not only reading but also quality family time with your children or grandchildren.

 

As a mom I love this idea. I really wish that there was something like this when my kids were younger.

My son was often referred to as a “reluctant reader.” He loved it when I read him stories, but he was not too keen on reading books on his own. I had to seek out books on specific topics that he would enjoy (weather, snow, cars…).

I found that my son did enjoy books that were engaging such as pop-up books or books with flaps he could lift up to find a surprise hidden underneath. I would have loved to have him physically get involved with the book and make it more fun than just lifting a flap.

Stories filled with action, excitement and adventure that help to stimulate young minds and aids literacy development.

Imaginary Friends_Adventure_Kit_photo

With Imaginary Friends, parents can put reading in the center of the things their kids love to do every day. Imaginary Friends is a “Family Adventure” that arrives at your house with printed chapters and a fun-filled activity kit with online and real-life games, scavenger hunts and moments to connect with your child.

That is another reason why I really like Imaginary Friends. It’s something that children can do with their siblings and their parents. It’s a family adventure!

These days families can become disconnected. We all lead such busy lives. When you factor in smartphones, tablets and video games it makes it even harder for families to come together to do something fun – something memories are made from. Imaginary Friends brings the family together for a quality bonding experience.

Currently this awesome interactive series is a Kickstarter Campaign. If you are not familiar with Kickstarter it’s a platform to help raise funds for innovative ideas and more. Contributors (known as “backer”), donate funds to projects they are interested in. When the project receives all it’s funding to go into production backers get great rewards.

Please note – If the total amount needed is not raised, contributors/backers will NOT be charged and Kickstarter will refund the money back to you. You will not be out any money if the project doesn’t pan out.

Imaginary Friends needs about $32,000 in order to go into production. With the exchange rate that would be $40,000 in Canada. The last time I checked they were less than $10,000 from reaching their goal. That is because many people see the value in such a program and want to see Imaginary Friends come to life.

Their Kickstarter campaign explains what you get when you contribute to this program. Some perks include free books and a year of free Imaginary Friends adventures.

Here’s a short video to see how it works and how you can join the community and be part of the adventure by contributing to the Kickstarter campaign.

If you would like to learn more you can also visit the Imaginary Friend website, ImaginaryFriendBooks.com.

In addition you can check them out on social media – Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube.

Imaginary Friends_Devices_Gameplay

You can check out a FREE sample Imaginary Friends Activity Kit available on their website. All you need to do is provide your email address. The sample kit will be available to all backers in addition to their existing reward regardless of the reward level.

Imaginary Friends is also giving away FREE downloadable Father’s Day cards on their blog.

Speaking of Father’s Day, Imaginary Friends would make a great Father’s Day gift. Forget the ties and mugs – why not give dad the gift of adventure and fun with his children. The memories he will make spending quality time with this children is a gift he will remember for a lifetime.

What do you think about Imaginary Friends? Does it sound like something you could enjoy with your child or grandchild? Do you like the idea of combining reading with physical activities and online gaming? Feel free to share your thoughts. I always love to hear from my readers.

Even if you don’t have children or grandchildren, but enjoy the concept, consider joining their community to share your thoughts and ideas with the creators.

How to Save on Summer Fun for Your Kids

 

Beach

Now that summer is almost officially upon us, many families are making plans on places to go, things to see and fun things to do.

When my kids were younger I had a hard time coming up with new and exciting things for them to do each day. There are only so many times you can go to the playground before it gets boring.

Cost is also a factor. Since we cannot afford to go on a real vacation, may family can only go on day trips. Thankfully we live near many state parks and we’re just a hop-skip-and-a-jump to New York City.

Finding ways to keep your kids (and grandkids) entertained during the summer months can be costly. In fact, a recent report from American Express Spending & Savings Tracker found that U.S. families dish out big bucks on activities for kids, with the per-child cost of summer fun ranging from $600 to over $1,000. For families with 3, 4 or more children the cost can be astronomical.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

To save your sanity and avoid going broke this summer, consider these budget-friendly ways to entertain your kids for less from Andrea Woroch* – a consumer and money-saving expert for Kinoli Inc (please refer to her author’s bio below).

Buy an Entertainment Book
The easiest way to access two-for-one and 50% off deals is to buy an entertainment book for your city. You can also pick one up in the city you’re visiting to save on food and activity expenses during your vacation. For instance, you can get a free child admission with one adult ticket for the Santa Barbara Zoo, or get one free bowling session when a second one is purchased at AMF Bowling Centers in Orlando.

Review Debit and Credit Card Perks
Some debit and credit cards offer money-saving perks for activities. For example, Bank of America’s Museums on Us program provides complimentary access to participating zoos, museums and other educational institutions during specific days over the summer. Similarly, a debit card issued by 1st National Bank (locations in Colorado and Nebraska) offers complimentary tickets to community events like the Taste of Fort Collins when users show their debit cards at ticket booths.

Head to the Library
Not only can you access books, audio books and DVDs for free, but your local library offers many community events and activities for families from reading groups to arts and crafts. Storytime is a popular event with libraries offering different readings based on age group. What’s more, your library may also be a resource for discount passes to museums and national parks.

Get Crafty
Having an arsenal of crafts at the ready helps you better respond to unexpected “I’m bored!” outbursts. To save on puzzles, painting kits, scrapbook activities and more, use coupons to offset your purchases to popular craft stores. For example, the Coupon Sherpa mobile app gives you instant access to deals like 30% off one item from JoAnn Fabrics, or 40% off one regular-priced item from either Michaels or Hobby Lobby. You can also find craft kits at department stores like Kohl’s, where savings of 15% off are available through the app.

Find Discount Admissions
Many recreation centers, museums, zoos and botanical gardens offer discount and sometimes free admission on certain days of the week. The Art Institute of Chicago offers free admission to Illinois residents every Thursday night, while the Denver Museum of Nature and Science offers a free day every month of the year. Review the organization’s website for applicable days and times to keep your costs low while providing an enriching activity for your kids.

Look for Freebies
Bowling centers give back to their communities and offer a safe and fun environment for kids through the Kids Bowl Free Program. Enjoy two free games every day at participating bowling centers by registering at KidsBowlFree.com. In addition to activities, you can find free meals for your kids at MyKidsEatFree.com when you enter your state of residence (or the one you’re traveling to!).

Catch a Flick for Less
Head to the movies on Monday or Tuesday nights, as many movie theaters offer discount passes and savings on concessions during off-peak times. Otherwise, catch a matinee for less or find a local drive-in theater for cheaper tickets and a fun experience for the kids. Use the Regal Cinemas app to access mobile coupons for popcorn, hot dogs and drinks, and take advantage of your local theater’s loyalty program to earn points towards freebies and future discounts.

Volunteer
Providing your children with a fulfilling activity doesn’t have to cost you money. A great way to keep your kids busy with a rewarding experience is to give back to the community. Review volunteer opportunities at VolunteerMatch.org for age-appropriate volunteer activities. Older kids may enjoy contributing to a Habitat for Humanity build, while younger kids can brighten the moods of seniors living in a local nursing home.

Review Daily Deals
Groupon, LivingSocial and other daily-deal providers are rife with discounts to family-friendly attractions. From discounts to local sporting events, introductory classes to unique activities like fencing and cheerleading, and even reduced-price admission to the local museum, these vouchers can save you money while introducing your child to something new. Make sure to read the fine print so you know exactly what you’re getting with your money, and remember you can use the voucher for the purchase price if it expires before you can spend it.

Balls

These are some awesome tips. Here are a few other ideas that my family has done during the summer months that don’t cost much to do.

Host a Family Movie Night – You can watch a movie you already own (a family favorite), rent a movie or stream from an online service such as Netflix. You can even swap movies with friends, family and neighbors. If you have the ability to watch a movie outside even better.

Camp in your own backyard – If your family enjoys camping and sleeping under the stars you don’t have to travel far to camp out. You can do it in your own backyard. If you don’t have camping equipment see if you can borrow some from family, friends or neighbors.

Visit your local and state parks – Most parks have nominal entrance and/or parking fees. Many parks offer several aneminies such as boating (and rentals), barbecues, swimming, hiking trails and more.

Host a Swap – Get together with family, friends and neighbors and host a swamp. You can swap toys, clothes, movies or whatever you’d like. It’s a great way to get rid of things your kids long longer need or want in exchange for things that are “new” to them. Kids can get “new” toys, books, movies and more and it won’t cost you a dime.

Set up a lemonade stand – This is always a fun activity. Plus the money the kids raise can be used to fund other fun summer activities.

These are just a few ideas.

How do you entertain your kids and save money during the summer months? Feel free to share your tips. I always love to hear from readers.

Crawl N’ Go Snail Yookidoo Babies R Us

 

Snail

I’m a mom to two teens, but that doesn’t mean I don’t remember their toddler and childhood years. In fact I wish my kids were still children. I was so unprepared for the teen years. Not only that, my oldest is graduating from high school next month and that is making me really sad and wish even more so than ever that my kids were little again.

I work with little children, so I do get to enjoy seeing children having fun with super cool toys. Toys these days are so much different from when I was a kid. They are a lot more interactive and have more “bells and whistles” than the ones I had growing up. I think if my kids were still little I’d go poor buying all the fun new toys.

Let me introduce you to a brand that makes really fun toys. The company is called Yookidoo. Their products are available at Babies R Us stores nationwide.

Below are six of their fun toys. Stack N Spray

Stack ‘N’ Spray Tub Fountain:

Water-jet powered fun in the tub!

  • Base attaches to the bottom of the tub and draws water up through the center creating a magical fountain for bath time play.
  • As boats and characters are stacked up on the base, the water flows through each one and out the top.
  • Change the figures on top for different effects: red boat spins as it sprays, blue boat has a swiveling propeller, octopus spouts in all directions, and scuba pal sprouts hair as he squirts from his mouth.
  • Figures are shaped for interchangeable stacking or to just float around the tub, too!
  • Easy for kids to turn on and off by themselves – just press the orange peek-a-boo button.

MSRP: $24.99

Crawl N' Go

Crawl ‘N’ Go Snail

  • Musical battery-operated snail rolls along and spins his shell as he goes.
  • Head turns from side to side.
  • Perfect toy to encourage crawling.
  • The shell unscrews to become a 7-piece stacker toy with a push-squeak face in the top.
  • Push the tail to activate rolling and music.

MSRP: $24.99

Stack Flap N' Tumble

Stack Flap ‘N’ Tumble

  • Amazing, engaging fun that really stacks up!
  • Stack up 5 big, colorful pieces, then drop 3 balls down the center.
  • Hear fun sounds when they hit the bottom and come tumbling out.
  • Soft, crinkly wings flap as the balls pass through.
  • Each stacking block has a clicking or rattling activity designed to encourage exploration and hone motor skills.
  • Flower funnel face features soft petals for tactile discovery

MSRP: $19.99

Flow N' Fill

Flow ‘N’ Fill Spout

  • Automatic play spout attaches to the tub and offers many ways to play with water.
  • Water is drawn up and through the spout creating an endless stream.
  • Three interchangeable tumblers each with a different spouting action
  • Use the tumblers individually or stack them and watch the water run through all three at once.
  • Swiveling arm holds the tumblers and can be placed directly under the stream or pushed off to the side. The spout swivels too!
  • Easy for kids to turn on and off by themselves – just press the face.

MSRP: $19.99

Lights N Music

Lights N Music Fun

  • Motion activated soft ball – rolling or shaking activates lights and fun music – teaches cause and effect.
  • Stimulates movement by encouraging babies to roll the ball and crawl after it.
  • Light and easy-to-grasp – perfect for small hands

MSRP: $14.99

Pull Along Duck

Pull Along Whistling Duck

  • Pull Along Whistling Duck whistles and sings as your toddler pulls it along.
  • Synchronized battery operated sounds start and stop automatically when in motion.
  • If left unattended, “Pull Along Whistling Duck” will whistle and call you to play some more.
  • Promotes balance and coordination.

MSRP: $19.99

The brand sent me the Crawl ‘N’ Go Snail to review. I shared it with the kids I work with to see how they enjoyed it. Due to the nature of my job I am unable to take photos of the toy “in action” with the kids.

By far one of the features that seems to get the most attention is the stacking toys that make up the snail’s shell. There are several toys that you can take apart. Each toys has something different about it.

In order to take it apart you do have to unscrew the one end of the stacker. Most toddlers can do that if you show them how. Young ones cannot so I found that I had to unscrew it all the time for the kids, which was OK with me.

crawl-n-go-snail-4

The toy it’s self is super adorable. Even looking at it on the shelf it’s cute. It’s made with bright colors which kids love too.

It’s a lot bigger than I thought it would be, which was a nice surprise.

The toy feels very well made. It’s made out of heavy plastic.

The snail plays a fun musical tune that kids seem to like. It also does roll across the floor. It seems to do better on flooring than carpeting. Thankfully the rug at work is thin and flat so it hasn’t been a problem.

I watch kids interact with it. They seem to go more for the shell than watching it move across the floor. Even when I show them how it works they seem to just have more interest in the shell.

As far as encouraging crawling and/or walking I can’t really determine that because the kids I work with are different every day. As a mom I could see that this toy could encourage a baby/child to want to go after it.

I like it. Both as a mom and someone who works with children. I think the Crawl ‘N’ Go Snail from Yookidoo is a delightful toy.

Look for this and other Yookidoo toys at a Babies R Us near you or visit www.BabiesRUs.com.

Talking to your teen about underage drinking (giveaway ends 5/31/15)

 

“I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Anheuser-Busch’s Family Talk About Drinking Program. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

Underage Drinking

Being a parent is one of the toughest jobs in the world. Babies do not come with instruction manuals. Wouldn’t that be nice?

Sure, there are plenty of books about parenting, and you can also seek advice from family and friends, but what it boils down to is you have to be the best parent that you can be. And let me tell you right now there is no such thing as a “perfect parent.”

Being a parent to a teen is a whole lot harder than parenting a child. I have two teens, a son and daughter. One is 18 and the other will be 16 in a few months.

Oh how I miss the child years! Raising teenagers is very stressful. Unlike children, teens are faced with bigger issues such as drugs, alcohol, smoking, dating, sex, graduating high school, college, getting their first job, learning to drive… the list goes on and on.

I have to admit that I was a bit of a “wild child” as a teenager. Nothing too crazy but I did attend keg parties starting when I was 15 years old – way under the drinking age. I thought I was so cool drinking when I was a minor. When I look back on it now I realize how foolish I was.

From a young age my husband and I tried to broach the subject of drinking, smoking and drugs (we save the sex stuff for a later age). My kids participated in the D.A.R.E (Drug Abuse Resistance Education ) program at school. They knew that I drank at a young age. In fact my daughter used that as part of her D.A.R.E essay. She won the essay contest and was asked to read her winning essay in front of the entire school, families and invited guests. That was a proud parent moment.

We have always been honest with our kids about things – like underage drinking – in hopes that they can learn from our mistakes. We also make it very clear what our expectations are from them in regards to things like drinking. They know we are totally against it and if they choose to make the wrong decision and engage in drinking there will be consequences.

These days it’s hard to have a deep, meaningful conversation with teens. There are so many distractions (especially from cellphones). I have found that the best conversations I have with my daughter is in the car. I pick her up from school, as well as take her to/from work and her friend’s houses. Right now she doesn’t have a car.

The trip to/from school is only a five minute drive. There have been days when it takes us an hour to get home because my daughter feels comfortable opening up to me in the car when it’s just the two of us. When she’s telling me about things, or wants to talk to me about something, I’ll just drive around while we chat. I also think she finds it more comfortable because we’re not looking at each other face to face since I’m looking at the road and my surroundings.

The talks we have in the car are by far the best, and deepest, talks we’ve ever had. Sometimes my daughter will even ask me to take her out some place just so we can have those talks.

Wine

One of our “car conversations” lead to my daughter confessing that she tried alcohol (beer) when she was hanging out with some friends in the woods by a stream. Some of the boys brought beer and everyone was grabbing one. So as not to feel awkward my daughter grabbed one too. She was going to pretend to drink some but curiosity got the best of her and she took a few sips just to try it out.

I appreciate that she felt comfortable enough telling me this. She knows how we feel about drinking and she knew she had to own up to what she did. Although she was honest and open about it (which she knows we appreciated), we had to ground her (the worst punishment of all – we took away her cellphone).

Our daughter hangs out with friends a lot and goes to a lot of parties. We know there is alcohol at these get togethers.

Senior prom and graduation are a month from now which means that there will be A LOT of alcohol readily available to these teens. Now it’s even more important than ever to make sure our daughter knows that  underage drinking is not only illegal, it’s also very dangerous. Being intoxicated can lead to other dangerous things (illegal drugs, sex, rape, drunk driving…).

We are confident that she is fully aware of what could happen if she were to get drunk. She also knows that if she goes to an after party where there is drinking involved that she needs to call us to pick her up rather than risk going home with a teen who has been drinking.

We also made it known that she’s “guilty by association.” If she’s putting herself in those kinds of situations and the Police get involved SHE is involved too whether she was drinking or not.

We are not fools. We KNOW most teens are curious about alcohol and will try it. The trick is to make it known that drinking is dangerous, unhealthy and illegal.

New-FT-Logo

Anheuser-Busch has a website to help parents bridge the subject of underage drinking with their teens (as well as younger children). Their Family Talk About Drinking (FTAD) program has been around for 2o+ years. I wish I knew about their site sooner.

Family Talk About Drinking offers parents tips on having an open conversation about drinking and alcohol with children of all ages.

Their program is broken up into the three main stages of parenting;

  • Being a Teacher (for children ages 1-7)
  • The Facilitator (for children ages 8-13)
  • The Coach (for children ages 14-21)

I’m in the “Coach” stage for both my kids.

I wish I had known about this site sooner, but none the less there are plenty of great tips to be found. I especially like the section on how to talk to your college bound student on how to be responsible when they move out. Thankfully our daughter will be going to school locally for a year, so that gives me more time with her to let know how about her responsibilities as an “adult” when she if finally out on her own.

Family Talk About Drinking has tips and suggestions from a certified educator and parent coach named MJ Corcoran. Ms. Corcoran has some excellent tips that all families can put into place TODAY.

Find Windows of Opportunity to Talk – When you have a teenager, windows of opportunity to talk can open and close fast. Use prom and graduation to continue the conversation around underage drinking. Set clear boundaries and encourage good decision-making this prom and graduation season.

Connect with Your Teen – Two things you can do to connect with your teen: listen and respect their opinion. In turn, they’ll be much more likely to talk with you about the tough issues – like underage drinking.

Ask Open-Ended Questions – During prom and graduation season, be sure to ask open-ended questions to help your teen think through potential scenarios involving alcohol.

Encourage Accountability – In the busy time leading up to prom and graduation, a text is not enough. Encourage accountability and check in with a call.

I strongly encourage all parents and guardians to check out the site and get involved in your child’s life. Even if you haven’t discussed drinking yet with your child you can start doing so TODAY.

Please visit FamilyTalkAboutDrinking.com to learn more. In addition you can also check out their Facebook page.

To see what others have to say about talking to children and teens about drinking, check out the hashtag #ABFamilyTalk.

To help you spend some quality time with your child/teen to open up the discussion about drinking and alcohol I have a $25 e-gift card (sent via email) to send to a lucky reader. Use the gift card to take your child out some place special (out for ice cream, dinner at a favorite restaurant…) and take the opportunity to discuss alcohol and drinking.

I don’t normally post press releases, however sometimes I come across ones I feel might be of interest to many readers.

Growing up one of my fondest memories was when my mom would take me to the movies during the summer when I was little. Our local movie theater showed Disney films at a discounted price. Once a week – every week – my mom would take me to see one of these films. Thanks to the theater I was able to see many of the great Disney classics like Sleeping Beauty, The Aristocats and Bambi on the big screen. Not only that I was able to spend quality time with my mom which are memories I’ll cherish forever.

Regal Entertainment, which has over 340 theaters across the country, will be offering wonderful family friendly films for only $1 per person as part of their Summer Movie Express. Below is more information.

Regal Entertainment Group (NYSE: RGC), a leading motion picture exhibitor owning and operating the largest theatre circuit in the United States, today announces that the Summer Movie Express is back for its 24th year. The launch of this summer’s program brings family movies for only a dollar to more than 340 Regal Entertainment Group theatres  across the country.
