Kolcraft Cares For KIDS Week Raises...

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.

National Screen Free Week

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.
