Ebates – Get Cashback for Shopping

Posted on August 14th, 2016 by Uncategorized

Think of Ebates as a local mall with over 1,200 different stores but with one huge difference. Online stores pay Ebates a commission (think of it as a finders’ fee) on every sale and they split this amount with the consumer. Each store pays a different commission so users will save different amounts at different stores; users just have to look at the percentage next to the store name to see how much they will save.


Inexpensive Birthday Morning Surprises

Posted on August 12th, 2016 by Uncategorized

chevron birthday candles on pancake stack

Nothing is better in a child’s mind than waking up to it finally being their birthday. This is a day that they’ve waited 364 days for. Even though it’s bound to already be super exciting, you can help to make it even more fun with a few surprises that they can wake up to.

1. A Banner. You can make your own “Happy Birthday” banner, or you can buy a cute one from the store. String it from the ceiling or across the window. When they wake up to your message reminding them (as if they really need reminding) that it’s their birthday, they’ll be extra excited.

2.  Balloons Everywhere. If they open their eyes and see colorful balloons all over their room, maybe a few helium on the ceiling and a bunch tossed on the floor and dresser, they’re going to definitely wake up on the right side of the bed.

3. A Surprise Outside Their Window. Toss rocks at their window until they wake up and look out. Have a big banner outside, a chalk mural, or a bunch of balloons. (If it’s still dark outside, stick glow sticks inside the balloons, they’ll glow!)

4. Birthday Pancakes. Waking up to the smell of homemade pancakes is always what I remember from my birthdays growing up. My parents would always make mine into a Mickey Mouse shape, and then top it with candles. Then everyone would sing “Happy Birthday” and I’d blow out the candles just like I would on a birthday cake. Regular pancakes would work just fine, but these Cake Batter Pancakes would be a hit!

5. Confetti. Nothing beats waking up to the popping of those little confetti shooters. Though you’re sure to startle them at first (which is part of the fun) they’ll love the raining down of confetti everywhere.

6. Scavenger Hunt. Place the first clue by their pillow, and then have it lead them, clue by clue, to a present they get to open that morning!

 

Whether you do just one of these or a combination of a few, you’ll make their day for sure. It doesn’t have to cost much money, it’s just the thought you put into it and the element of surprise that they will cherish in their memories forever.

30 Of The Best Parent-Child Date Ideas

Posted on August 11th, 2016 by Uncategorized

Young man and his daughter making pastry in the kitchen

Some of my fondest memories are when I got to have one-on-one time with each of my parents. I remember going to see the Lizzie McGuire Movie when I was 8 with my mom, and it was one of the most fun memories I have. We were the only ones in the theater, and we saw a showing that was later than I was usually able to stay up for. After the show we headed to the grocery store to grab some treats, and we had such great conversations the whole time! My parents made it a point to have time with each of us kids individually as we were growing up, and I think that it is so important that every parent does that at least a couple times. It’s just so crucial that kids can have the full attention of that one parent, even if it’s just for an hour. It presents an opportunity for that child to open up to that parent and feel more comfortable asking questions and talking about things that are personal to them. No matter what the age, one-on-one “dates” can help forge stronger relationships and form great memories.

It’s not always easy to come up with something that can be fun for both the parent and the child, so I’ve compiled a list for you! They could be big things that you need to plan ahead of time, or impromptu activities that can be done any day at home. Pick a few of these and start planning the dates today!

1. Go Pokemon-Go Hunting (trust me, your kids will think you’re the coolest if you take them to look for a rare Pokemon)

2. Take a class together (cooking, painting, dance… etc)

3. Walk to a park

4. Track down a favorite food truck for lunch

5. Ride scooters or bikes around the neighborhood

6. Get dinner at their favorite restaurant

7. Let them stay up past their bed time as you do an activity at home together

8. Finger paint masterpieces together

9. Buy a bunch of LEGOS and build something together

10. Cook a meal (pizza is always a fun one)

11. Go volunteer somewhere together

12. Head to the movies (make sure to plan time to talk about the movie afterwards, as there isn’t much talking during the movie itself)

13. Fly a kite

14. Hike a fun trail together

15. Get all dressed up and go to a fancy restaurant (this is a great opportunity to teach manners)

16. Pretend to be photographers and take pictures around the neighborhood

17. Mini Golf

18. Challenge each other at an arcade

19. Play your child’s favorite video game with them

20. Paint each others nails (dads, I’m sure your daughter would love you to paint her nails and let her return the favor!)

21. Go to the museum

22. Picnic at the park

23. Create your own slip ‘n slide in the Summer

24. Board game night

25. Go horseback riding

26. Go to an amusement park

27. Head to the bookstore and pick out a book for each other

28. Have a tea party

29. Watch a baseball or basketball game together

30. Pick fruit at an orchard

 

These are just a handful ideas compared to the hundreds of fun activities that are out there! If you’re feeling stumped, you can always ask your child what they’d like to do, I’m sure they have lots of great ideas. These dates don’t have to be planned out completely, they don’t have to cost money, and they don’t even have to last all night. Just spend some quality time with your kids doing something that you both enjoy, one-on-one, and you’re sure to make lasting memories.

Baby Steps For Healthier Choices

Posted on August 8th, 2016 by Uncategorized

Healthy eating themed vegetables spell the words Healthy Food

It’s not always easy to make healthy choices all the time. A day can start out with good intentions and then end with a Triple Chocolate Cheesecake. But that’s okay! Dessert is one of the best parts of the day and it’s totally okay to have sweets every once in a while. And sometimes there is just no time to make that “Quinoa Black Bean Spinach Salad” for dinner before running the kids to their activities so Wendy’s has to suffice. That is okay, too. Being healthy doesn’t mean that you never give your kids French fries; it’s all about incorporating healthy options in each day so that even if you don’t have time to put together a super healthy dinner, everyone’s still getting the nutrients and vitamins they need from a few snacks or other little things that you’ve done throughout the day.

  1. Simple Swaps. Swap out the fries for apples. Choose a fruit smoothie instead of a milkshake. Get the brown rice instead of white, and choose carrot sticks over chips.
  2. Stay away from soda. Save soda for special occasions or as a special treat every once in a while. With the massive sugar content it would be so much better to substitute with a fruit juice or water.
  3. Keep healthy food in reach. Put a bowl of freshly washed fruit on the table. Have a snack drawer available for the kids to get into when they’re hungry, and keep the junk food somewhere that isn’t as easily accessible.
  4. Prepare it in a creative way. Form carrots and broccoli into a smiley face on a plate, stick melon and grapes on a skewer and serve with a yogurt dip. Even if it’s a food that your kids swear they hate, they may find they enjoy it after seeing it in a new light.

These are just a few tips that I put together. There are endless other new ways to incorporate more fruit and vegetables and other healthy choices into you and your family’s diet.

What are some of your best tips and tricks to get your family to eat healthier? Let me know in the comments!
