Amazing Earth Day Activities for Kids

Amazing Earth Day Activities for Kids

Earth Day is every day around here, but the official day is April 22nd.  I did not grow up educated about how to keep a healthy, sustainable environment and environmental protection. Recycling was not big in our house either, until I moved out on my own.  When I started college, I learned about  global warming, deforestation, and pollution.  Today, I take my kids to "beach clean ups" and we recycle, especially reusing boxes and containers to store toys and nick knacks. I recently visited Costa Rica and planted a tree! It felt so good to know that I was making a difference. Costa Rica knows how to take care of their country. They know how to teach their kids on how to be environmentally friendly. The kids and …

How to Have an Easy Kid's Virtual Birthday Party

How to Have an Easy Kid's Virtual Birthday Party

This year has been interesting to say the least. We stayed in most of the time, homeschooling sometimes and had virtual play dates. I set up some quarantine activities and a couple of trips while remote learning. We haven't had any fun Birthday Parties or big family trips in a year. A year ago we had our last Birthday Party at a park. We had just heard about Covid-19 and I knew this could be the last time we get together for a while. But I didn't think it would be a whole year before we had parties with friends and family. This year having an inside Birthday party was out of the question because we didn't want to put anyone in …

11 Awesome Travel Books for Kids

We love traveling. I grew up in Europe and moved to the United States when I was 8 years-old. Before then, I spent summers in Greece with my Yia Yia. We drove through Italy and I had been to Spain and France before 7 years of age. We traveled a lot. My father is Greek and my mother is English. My husband is French so that makes us a diverse family being first generation Americans. It's always been important in my family to travel. Whether it's to a new park in another city or hopping on a ferry to go to another country. We always wanted to see the world and it's different cultures. With Covid this year, we were stuck. …

60 + Amazing Easter Desserts for the Whole Family

We loved Easter growing up because it meant decadent Greek Easter dinners, or British style Sunday dinners, depending on where we lived. In the UK, when I was growing up, we didn't have Easter Egg Hunts, we had simple chocolate eggs filled with more chocolate. But these days kids have exorbitant Easter baskets. I'm just happy to make some fun Easter desserts and a simple Easter Egg hunt inside the house. Having kids , we make things like keepsake eggs to pass down and cute birds nest. Kids love Easter crafts and Easter Pritables. But they also love Easter desserts like cupcakes, and cakes, chocolate bark and jellybeans. My favorite sweet that comes out during Easter is the Cadbury Mini Eggs. I …

How to have a Virtual Birthday Party + Giveaway

My son was turning 7 this month and wanted a party. With people still a little weary about being together, I didn't want to put anyone in an uncomfortable position. But my son wanted a party and after the year we have all had, he deserved it. I've been trying to figure out how to have a Virtual Birthday Party. I'm hoping it will be our last one for a while but I learned a lot doing it. I needed the kid's to be engaged on zoom so I made fun activity kits. I made sure that I packed snacks in the box, since every party needs snacks and made them wait until we were on zoom to open them. The kids …

Dine in an Igloo at the Hilton Sedona Resort At Bell Rock

Dine in an Igloo at the Hilton Sedona Resort At Bell Rock

If you told me a year ago that I would be in Sedona this time this year, I'd say, "of course I will be!" I visit the 'Spiritual Mecca of the Southwest’ often. It's my escape from the hustle and bustle of Phoenix. But if you told me that I would be dining in an igloo, I'd probably laugh. First of all because we live in the desert and second, why? Until I visited Hilton Sedona Resort At Bell Rock, I didn't really understand the concept of dining in an igloo. Sedona’s only full-service spa and an 18-hole golf resort is set amidst the spectacular beauty of the magnificent red rock formations surrounding Sedona. The igloo adds the magical, romantic feeling to the resort. But in fact, …
