The LEGOLAND California Resort: Reducing the ROAR and Minimizing Meltdowns

The LEGOLAND Difference:
Reducing the ROAR

As I told you in part one of my LegoLand California Resort review, our experience was unlike any other vacation we have ever experienced.

Before I can explain what was so awesome about LEGOLAND California, I must first share a secret with you that no one knows: Everyone in my family, except me, loves our family vacations.  While I kinda like the idea of vacationing as a family, I typically anticipate these "vacations" the same way I look forward to having cavities filled at the dentist. I'm always more concerned if my children or my husband are having fun, keeping to our schedule, being the tour guide, than just sitting in the moment and taking in the fun that is happening around me.

I love play kitchens, and love pretend cooking. Play kitchens seem to just help foster the growth of imaginative play. After all, weren't the best toys when you were a baby the giant pasta pot and a variety of clangy spoons, ladles and lids? You problem solve, you imagine what you're cooking, you pretend you are going through the steps to make a hamburger!

Do your children love books as much as the Nugget? We love reading to our daughter, it's probably one of my favorite things to do. I admit, there have been times I was lax on reading, but we've gotten back into the swing of reading daily, talking about the stories, pictures, and learning new words. I am very excited to be sharing this giveaway from Usborne Books with you!

Kids Academy Leaning Apps for Preschoolers and Toddlers

I'd like to thank Kid's Academy for sponsoring this post.

As I posted a few weeks ago, we know it's impossible for kids to avoid technology these days. I've made a point of finding educational apps that help to facilitate learning in a fun, engaging manner for my daughter. Not only that, I prefer Apps that work on eye-hand coordination, visual perceptual skills, and school preparatory type activities, such as learning shapes, letters and numbers.  As I've said before, when I hear about a great new App, I jump at the chance to check it out. When I heard Kid's Academy reeently updated their apps and added some new ones, I definitely wanted to check them all out!
