My family and I enjoy doing do-it-yourself and craft projects because it allows us to make unique pieces we can add to our space. I find when we handcraft items, we appreciate it and care for it more because it does not carry monetary value. The books at DK Made by Hand Boutique are an inspiring collection with lots of ideas, which children and adults will enjoy.

"Walt Before Mickey" will be released by Vision Films across North America on DVD and Digital on Walt Disney's birthday, December 5th. It is a perfect film for the holidays, taking viewers on a journey through the early years of Walt Disney's career. We really enjoyed watching this inspiring, heartwarming movie, as it tells the story of Walt Disney’s early years and his career leading up to his visionary creation of Mickey Mouse.

With Kissan products, we can spice it up and make Indian food at home easily. As a foodie that loves to cook and bake, I think the quality of the ingredients makes a big difference on how our food turns out. I have been using a variety of Kissan products like their spices and sauces to make quick and delicious meals for my family that we all love.

It is always special when the gifts we get especially from our children are handmade. This shows how much effort, love, and care they put into making it. My children and I got a chance to use and play with awesome Klutz Kits that provide fun activities for everyone over 8. Since 1977 Klutz creates activity kits that come with all the materials and instructions we need to make fabulous crafts. I think these kits are wonderful for both children and adults alike who enjoy doing crafts or learning how to do crafts. The end products of what we make using the material and inspiration from these kits can be given as gifts to loved ones.
I think it is important we share with our loved ones how we can help other families and communities become healthier and stronger by supporting them. We can easily to do this by purchasing gifts from World Vision that multiply 12 times in impact. Gifts like a goat + 2 chicken, chicken and eggs, teach a family to fish, honeybees, seeds to plant, fruit tree, give a ger, solar lantern, clothes, shoes, tools and training can help these communities. We can also help communities close to home by providing nutritious food, school supplies, and clothing for children in USA. With every gift we purchase World Vision will include a free personalized card that we can give our loved ones, which will help them know that they made an impact and helped another person.

When I speak with my friends who are parents that have young children, some say that they feel like they are running out of ideas to make playtime fun. In my opinion and practice with my own children, I believe for children to have fun and play it doesn't need to cost a lot of money or require tech gadgets. All we have to do is provide our children with good quality toys that encourages development such as building blocks, a clean safe space, and spend time interacting and playing with them.

My family and I enjoy learning about wildlife, and we do this as a leisure activity during our eco-tourism to wildlife parks in Canada, and in different countries such as going to see elephants and turtles. We find watching documentaries and learning about wildlife from books such as this Wildlife of the World book is an extraordinary and a humbling experience for us. The unique habitats of the world that God has created are incredible and amazing, as every species has features that are specific to them, which they need for their survival.

My children and I checked out a few children's books that are educational and fun to read. Ru-lan is a fun and exciting series of books about a special young prince born in the kingdom of Lǒu. The descriptions and details in the story makes these picture books fun for both children and adults to read independently or as a group. We enjoyed how the author, Larry Bennett brings together the human world and the animal kingdom together in the stories.

We love playing with the OgoSport mini OgoDisk. It is fabulous to play alone or with other people. We can use this 12" diameter OgoDisk to throw and catch like a flying disk, or play team sports like volleyball, baseball, tennis or our own game.
