Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Big Help DVD & Coloring Sheet @fheinsiders #ad #BerryBigHelp

2/19/14
I will be receiving a copy of the movie as a Fox Home Insider. No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own. 

Fox Home Entertainment

Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Big Help is now available on DVD (released Feb. 18th).

The Attic Baby is a big fan of this fun animated series!  And with a little sibling on the way, I think she will definitely enjoy the episode about Baby Berrykin. 

It's time for everyone to help out as best they can in these three delightful Strawberry Shortcake episodes. It's Strawberry to the rescue in "Babysitter Blues" when the princess asks her to look after a very special Baby Berrykin. Orange and Lemon take on the role of "Fashion Elves" in "A Stitch of Time" to help Raspberry with her fashion design dreams. 

And there's no place like home when Orange adopts a bitty fish that turns out to be a homesick tadpole. Join in the sparkly fun as the girls learn that lending a helping hand can be a berry big deal indeed!

DVD Special Features

  • “Sunshine Girls” Music Video
  • Printable Coloring Pages
 
To celebrate the DVD release, I have a free printable coloring sheet for your Strawberry Shortcake fan.  Simply right click and save to your computer to print.

Our Free Birds Pizza Party @fheinsiders #sponsored #FreeBirdsDVD

2/14/14

Fox Home Entertainment

Thanks to Fox Home Insiders for providing a Pizza Hut Giftcard & party packs for my family.  All opinions are my own.

Family movie night is a tradition in our house.  We try at least once a month to pick a movie we all would enjoy and have a special treat together.

My family had a Free Birds viewing party this past weekend along with other Fox Home Insiders to celebrate the release of the DVD.  

If you haven't seen Free Birds, here's a little bit about the movie:

From the Academy Award®-Winning producer of Shrek comes a hilarious animated adventure about two turkeys from opposite sides of the tracks who travel back in time in order to keep their species off the Thanksgiving menu. Featuring an all-star voice cast, including Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson and Amy Poehler, Free Birds is loaded with laughs and stuffed with fun for the whole family!


We were provided with these great party packs which included:  a Pizza Hut gift card, Free Birds themed T-Shirt, cup & paper plate, crayons, stickers & coloring sheets.

Fox Home Insiders


The Attic Baby was very excited about wearing her Free Birds T-shirt, playing with her tote for her stuffies, and having the chance to color.  She couldn't wait until party time to dig into everything. 



Her brother was a good sport and wore his shirt too.  We ordered some delicious food from Pizza Hut (what could be better than dinner & a movie night at home with the family?) before sitting down to watch Free Birds.

Fox Home Insiders

The guys had some bacon topped stuffed crust pizza and cheesy bread.  I shared a yummy dinner salad along with some bread sticks and marinara sauce with the Attic Baby (we've learned that she is not a fan of pizza).  It sure made this prego mama happy (and that is no easy task with this nauseous tummy lately)!  



Fox Home Insiders




We all enjoyed watching this family-friendly film (despite both parents feeling a bit under the weather)!  Reggie is hilarious and Jenny is a great strong female character.  My hubby & teenage son were cracking up throughout the movie (I caught a few funnies here and there in-between tweeting with @fheinsiders).  Free Birds was full of laughs, fun action, and a great lesson about family.   I think we may just have to make pizza & Free Birds a new Thanksgiving tradition!

If you're looking for a family-friendly movie for Family Movie Night, you should pick up a copy of Free Birds and have a pizza party with your family too!

DIY Valentine's Day Themed Rice Table #sensorybin #preschool

2/11/14
Long winter days indoors can be a challenge when you have little ones. There have been few days that we have been able to get outside to play, so I have been looking for activities to keep The Attic Baby busy that don't require spending money.

One of the activities that has been a big hit is the rice table.  She loves colored rice and will spend hours sitting and scooping, burying different toys and digging them out. 

We had put our rice table away after creating our Fall themed Rice (our whole family got sick around the holidays so we never got to make Christmas colors), so she was excited to take it back out and make a Valentine's Day theme.

Step 1:  Coloring the Rice

sensory bins, rice tables, preschool activities, fall sensory bins



If you haven't colored rice before, here are the ingredients you will need:

Items Needed:
  • rice
  • food coloring
  • food storage bags
  • rubbing alcohol (or you can use vinegar)
  • storage container
  • cookie sheets
  • tin foil or wax paper

Coloring rice is pretty easy.  I measured about 4 cups of rice in a ziplock bag.  Then I added 1 tbs of rubbing alcohol (you can use vinegar but I heard that this dries quicker), 4 drops of red, and about 8 drops of yellow food coloring and sealed the bag.  (I've seen people use Kool-Aid too but I am afraid of attracting little bugs and/or ants)

The Attic Baby loves helping; her favorite part is shaking the bag and watching the color spread.


Once we had the shade of reddish pink I wanted, I poured the rice onto cookie sheets covered with tin foil to dry.  It took about an hour.



Step 2:  Arrange Your Rice Table

I mixed some white rice in with the pinkish red in our water table.  We added some funnels, scoopers, and a water bottle that we already had.  








Though it's a pretty simple project, it provides hours of fun for my preschooler!

How do you keep your little one busy during these long winter months?

Surprise! Guess Who's Gonna Be a Big Sister? {Not so Wordless Wednesday}

2/5/14



You may have noticed that it's been a bit quiet for a little while here on the blog.  That's because we're excited to announce that I'm pregnant!    (13 weeks & counting!)

The Attic Baby is going to be a big sister & is so excited!  The Attic Teen is hoping for a little brother.  And I am just hoping that this all day constant nausea will start easing up soon and that this little rainbow baby will be healthy.  (I've been a bit nervous after our miscarriage, but things have been going really well so far)  We appreciate your good thoughts and prayers for this new family member!

Free Birds on Blu-ray Feb 4th, Twitter Party, & Giveaway @fheinsiders #ad #FreeBirdsDVD

2/4/14
As a Fox Home Insider, I will receive a copy of Free Birds.  All opinions are my own.


Fox Home EntertainmentWe've been eagerly anticipating the release of Free Birds on Blu-ray & DVD today Feb. 4th!   My kids saw the commercials back when it was in theaters and told me how much they wanted to see it, but we didn't have a chance to go.  

It looks pretty funny (who doesn't wonder what those turkeys are thinking around Thanksgiving?) and will make a great movie night during these blah days of winter.   

From the Academy Award®-Winning producer of Shrek comes a hilarious animated adventure about two turkeys from opposite sides of the tracks who travel back in time in order to keep their species off the Thanksgiving menu. Featuring an all-star voice cast, including Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson and Amy Poehler, Free Birds is loaded with laughs and stuffed with fun for the whole family!
