Hockey shoot outs, bake sales, pancake breakfasts and a silent auction were just a few of the events that took place during Kolcraft’s Annual KIDS week. During KIDS week, Kolcraft employees pull together via teams to raise money to benefit Kids In Distressed Situations. It’s a week of food, fun and festivities as the Kolcraft family reaches into the heart of who we are as a company – a place where children and family are cherished. We were thrilled to have raised over $5,000 for KIDS.
On Take Your Child to Work Day last week, two Kolcraft kids taught us how to make these adorable glitter cards. They are super easy to make and add a fun touch to any thank you note or Mother’s Day card!
This week is national Screen Free Week which we think is a fabulous idea. For many of us, media time has become part of our daily family living whether it’s computers, smartphones, DVDs, the Cloud or whatever is at our virtual fingertips. Let’s face it, sometimes screen time can calm down a restless toddler at a doctor’s office, can distract kids on long trips or can even be a learning tool. However, there is something to say for turning off the screen – no matter what size – and playing outside, using imagination for play, reading a book together even as a family or having family game time.
Our children spend most of their time in their beds and rightly so! Sleep is one of the most important factors in healthy development and growth. Sometimes our baby’s crib mattress is an afterthought.
Monday is Earth Day and to celebrate we have this easy craft that even the smallest member of your family can do.
