Recently, I had the pleasure of meeting Heidi Howe of Wee Rock music classes. She has a passion for music and wants to share it with you.
Wee Rock classes, parties and concerts are geared toward children age infant to 5 years old and their parents/grown-up friends. We are passionate about helping families connect by having fun with music. We aim to make our music experiences affordable, convenient, educational and super fun!
Wee Rock general music classes are approximately 40 minutes in length. We experiment with rhythm, sound, instruments ...
The Inside Scoop on Fantastic New Products and a Giveaway!
Late in September, I attended the ABC Expo (All Baby and Child Expo) at the Kentucky Exposition Center. This fantastic event included over 3000 exhibitors showing off the latest and greatest products for you and your little one. The catch is, only buyers, members of the media and exhibitors are permitted to attend. I'm exploding with awesome products that I can't keep to myself anymore! Here are some of my favorites. Oh, let me know which products you could see yourself using and maybe you'll find them ...
The BRITAX Baby Carrier
If you read the ABC Kids Expo article, you already know there are tons of hidden treasures on the market that you just don't find in our everyday stores. Alternatively, the BRITAX Baby Carrier is readily available! But did know know what makes it stand out from it's competition?
BRITAX has created their Baby Carrier to be easy on mom and dad and cool and comfortable for baby. This innovative carrier introduced earlier this year relieves back strain and allows for use with babies from 8 to 32 ...
My daughter recently started to notice all the Halloween and Fall decorations on display at the grocery store and gas stations and... well pretty much everywhere we go so we couldn't put it off any longer; it's time to start decorating. :)
If you're anything like us, you may be wondering how to decorate on a budget so we've started digging out all the old containers and old craft supplies that I tend to put away and forget about until they're needed.
This is what we came up with this week so have fun and we hope you have as much fun as we did!
What you need:
* Cleaned milk or water jug
* Glue (white or clear school glue, not glue sticks)
* Orange and yellow tissue paper
* Black construction paper cut into eyes, nose and mouth shapes for the jack-o-lantern
* Battery-operated LED tea light
What you do:
* Be sure the jug is cleaned and dry before beginning. Have the adult cut a hole about 3"x3" or so.
* Give each person a paintbrush and cover the jug in glue (best to do it in sections) and then cover glue with orange and yellow tissue papers. Layers can look super awesome! Cover entire jug
* Use your finger to glue down any raised corners or edges then add the jack-o-lantern's face
* Let dry completely
* place tea-light in jug
* ENJOY! :)
