We love Mother’s Day because we think moms should be celebrated for the love, dedication, devotion and stamina they show every day as they raise their children. We asked moms and dads here in our Kolcraft office what was on their or their wife’s Bliss List for this Mother’s Day. A few of the responses & some ideas for last minute gifts for those who still haven’t finished planning Mother’s Day!
Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate. It is also an opportunity to celebrate other moms. As mothers, we understand the experiences of other moms.
Playing with your kids, reading a book on a beach, walking your dog – whatever your bliss, we want you to tap into it and share it. Spurred on by the release of the new Contours Bliss stroller, our co-workers shared their bliss moments. Check them out on Flicker & our videos. Leave a comment of what your bliss is and automatically be entered to win a $25.oo gift card to support your bliss!
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.
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.
