Santa HQ was designed and created by HGTV and just like all HGTV makeovers Santa’s house has been modernized. Visitors can download the Elf-Ray Vision app on their smartphones. You can then locate the gears around Santa’s house and workshop and see what those mischievous little elves are up to in the workshop. You can also get a 3-D view of all of Santa’s toy blueprints.

Kids can also get scanned to find out if they are the naughty or nice list with the big guy. After they are scanned their name will appear on either the naughty or nice list. You’ll have to work hard and hurry to get on the nice list though if you are on the naughty list because Christmas is just around the corner.

Sick Just Got Real

by Jennifer Wieland
Sick Just Got Real - Pfizer Products to the rescue!
Thank you to Pfizer for sponsoring today’s post. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

 

Living in the Chicago area the spring can be really tricky season. One day it can be sunny and 65º and the next day you can have snow and 30º degrees. Last week we were plagued with snow, hail, freezing wind and cold but today we are supposed to hit 70º and be able to back in some sunshine. The problem with weather like this though is that kids in school seem to end up really sick. Every time one of my babies wakes up with a cold or cough and I have to keep them home from school I realize that Sick Just Got Real™ and it’s time to gather up my sick kid supplies and get to work. 

Sick Just Got Real - How do you help your kids feel better when they are sick? #Pfizer #Dimetapp #Advil #Robitussin #ad

Luckily I always keep a good stock of supplies on hand from Target to help out in these situations. My go to medicine choices for my group that I like to have on hand are products from the Pfizer Pediatric family. Children’s Advil®, Children’s Robitussin®, and Children’s Dimetapp® always get the job done in our house. I also like that Chldren’s Dimetapp® is alcohol free and that Children’s Advil® is a great way to get those fevers, aches and pains you get when sick to go away. Of course your going to need tissue and hand sanitizer to help keep the kids from passing their sick on to their siblings.

Sick Just Got Real - How do you help your kids feel better when they are sick? #Pfizer #Dimetapp #Advil #Robitussin #ad

I like to keep a stash of busy stuff for the kids when they are sick. Coloring books, notebooks to draw or write in, some simple card games all work out really well when the medicine kicks in and they feel better and want to do something but you know that they still need rest and don’t want them over doing it. You can usually find a great selection of this stuff in the Target Dollar Spot. 

Sick Just Got Real - How do you help your kids feel better when they are sick? #Pfizer #Dimetapp #Advil #Robitussin #ad

Our go to sick meal is some chicken noodle soup. It’s a classic for a reason. Something about it just makes you feel better. Add in some fun shaped crackers to help with any upset tummies and orange juice to up their vitamin C and your kids will be on the mend in no time flat.

Frost when completely cooled.
For the Frosting
  1. Cream the butter and vanilla in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add the powdered sugar in three batches and be sure to thoroughly scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl between each addition. Once combined add 1 tbsp. of the cream and mix. Add the second one if necessary. Add any food coloring at this point. Beat the finished frosting on high for 2-3 minutes until smooth and creamy. Use to frost cookies or cakes.
Notes

Valentine’s Day Finger Laser Cards Printable for Kids

by Jennifer Wieland
Valentine's Day Finger Laser Cards Printable for Kids

 

 

I am all about classroom parties! I am that mom that totally gets into it and wants to be a part of all of them for each of her kids. For my 3rd grade son’s Valentine’s Day party I wanted to do something fun for him and that he would love. Him being a complete and total boy, I knew he would absolutely love, love, love a comic book theme and what goes awesome with a comic book theme? Why, finger lasers of course! That my friends is how I came up with this freaking cute Valentine’s Day finger laser cards printable!

Valentine's Day Finger Laser Cards Printable for Kids

The inspiration for these came while wandering around Target and stalking the clearance sections. I found these four packs of finger lasers on clearance and just knew these would make a great Valentine’s Day handout for one of my boys. 

Valentine's Day Finger Laser Cards Printable for Kids

Then the fun began. I tried creating numerous cards to go with these but none of them really grabbed me as being the perfect fit for the finger lasers. That is until I made these comic book themed cards. I mean after all, don’t comic book villains and lasers often go hand in hand? Once i settled on the design I was then able to get the cards printed up, I cut them out, punched holes in them and took some twine and tide on the finger lasers. These cards would also work great with glow sticks or mini flashlights if you can’t find finger lasers. 

Valentine's Day Finger Laser Cards Printable for Kids

Ready to make these for your favorite comic book fan’s class party? Simply click on the picture below and you can print out the cards for your own personal use.

Kid Friendly Snack Idea – Two Ingredient Nesquik Fruit Dip

by Jennifer Wieland
#Nesquik Chocolate Powder and Nesquik Ready-to-Drink keep your kids fueled.

 

My kids are always in the mood for a snack, especially after school or playing outside. While there are a ton of quick, easy convenient foods that they could grab I prefer them to have healthier foods too much on and refuel with. One thing I always reach for is Nesquik Ready-to-Drink or Nesquik Chocolate Powder to serve up a nutritious drink. One day though while my daughter was drinking her Nesquik and eating some fruit she was asking me if she could help me with one of my recipes. That’s when I got the idea to make a fun and easy recipe that she could make all on her own. Two Ingredient Nesquik Fruit Dip is a great way to add some fun and extra flavor to fruit or animal crackers for the kids.

#Nesquik Chocolate Powder and Nesquik Ready-to-Drink keep your kids fueled.

Nesquik has been a staple throughout my life. When I was a kid and we only had an option for white milk at school my mom would send me with a plastic baggies with some Nesquik measured out for me to make my milk tasty. To this day the only way I can drink milk is if I stir in some Nesquik. So it’s no surprise that I’ve passed my love for Nesquik onto my kids. 

#Nesquik Chocolate Powder and Nesquik Ready-to-Drink keep your kids fueled.

So what makes Nesquik products so great?

• Nesquik Powder has all the nutritious deliciousness your kids love with 45% less sugar than the leading syrup brand and with no artificial colors or flavors.

Nesquik Chocolate Milk (ready to drink):

• Nestlé Nesquik® Chocolate Low Fat Milk is a great drink to give your kids after they have an intense game or practice to help nourish those exhausted muscles.
• Did you know, research suggests that low-fat chocolate milk, like Nesquik®, may contain the ideal 3:1 mix of carbs and protein to help refuel and restore exhausted muscles?
• With 40% of your kids’ Daily Value of Calcium and 12% Daily Value of Potassium, this is the post game snack that bring the nutrition and the fun!

Since she loves to dance so much she is a HUGE fan of the Just Dance video game franchise.She also just so happens to be a lover of all things Disney, so the Just Dance: Disney Party 2 game was something she really wanted.

Just Dance: Disney Party 2 is now available on Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Nintendo’s Wii and Wii U systems.

One day last week my daughter came home from school cranky and in a bad mood. That’s just not like her. She is usually very bubbly and excited to tell me all about her day. Then I noticed her nose was a little runny and I realized that the ups and downs of our weather temps had set off her allergies again.

Once I showed her the surprise I had in store for her, the Just Dance: Disney Party 2 game she perked up pretty darn quick! We’re talking jumping up and down and squealing while begging to play immediately.

Moving, grooving and twirling to the moves of the game were most definitely a hit with my daughter! Just Dance: Disney Party 2 features more than 20 tracks from the hottest Disney Channel hits, with songs from movies like “Descendants” and “Teen Beach 2” as well as shows like “Girl Meets World” and “Liv and Maddie.”

She’s been through all of the songs and dances but her two favorite ones are Better in Stereo from “Liv and Maddie” and Can You Feel It? from “Austin & Ally”. I have to confess that even I have been getting my groove on with her playing this game.

Wisconsin Dells Fun at Wizard Quest or Ripley’s Believe It or Not!

I received passes in order to facilitate my review. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

 

For many Chicagoans heading to Wisconsin Dells for a vacation or quick weekend getaway is a common thing. The drive is fairly short for a road trip (about 2.5 – 3.5 hours depending on where you are) so it’s very doable with kids. There are also a ton of fun places to visit there. Many people automatically think of all of the water parks (both indoor and outdoor) since it is the water park capital of the world but there is so much more fun to be had than just that! Two of my family’s favorite places to visit is Wizard Quest and Ripley’s Believe It or Not! We just came back from visiting both last weekend and my kids are still talking about both of them.

Visiting Wizard Quest was a first for us. The kids were on the fence about going since we weren’t sure what to expect. I’m kind of a fantasy geek so I was excited.

Once we got there though and headed through the portal they became very intrigued and started to get into it.

I won’t spoil it for you but I will tell you that slides, secret passages and racing against a clock to free four wizards as a family team was so much FUN! There are three levels you can pick to play and bonus things to find as well.

Wizard Quest was honestly one of the best times I have ever had with my three youngest kids. We were laughing and running around together trying to get everything we needed.

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in Wisconsin Dells was someplace I went to as a kid and took my older kids to but hadn’t been there in more than a decade. For my three youngest kids this was a first time trip for them.

My kids were fascinated, disturbed, grossed out and freaked out many times through the exhibits. My 8-year-old son thought it was highly entertaining. The kids all liked that once again there were secret passages that led to hidden chambers and exhibits.

Learning about ancient torture devices, vampires and bizarre animals and people was highly fascinating! I now know how shrunken heads are made. Not quite a life skill but interesting.
