30 days to Hands on Play Challenge: Day 1

  I will be doing the 30 days to hands on play challenge.  :)  I will be honest and admit I know I might miss a few days so my 30 days might be more like 40.  I am going to be out of town for a few days so its a good excuse.  :)  

What is 30 Days to Hands on Play?

A 30 day challenge to inspire you to play [at least] 15 minutes with your kids [no interuptions].
To become more involved with them.
To introduce yourself and your kids to new play ideas!

How will the challenge work?
The Imagination Tree and I will alternate [on our blogs] with a play activity challenge each day for the month of November. These play activities are meant to be simple, and to use what you have on hand.

We will each be doing each day's activities together with you, and there will be further discussion that can be found on The Play Network to share what you did for that day's challenge. Through these discussions we hope to inspire each other more through everyone's ways they played that day.

What can I hope to accomplish during the Challenge?
Learn to play with your kids!
Ideas to get you out of the regular old routine.
The rest is for you to decide.
That's your first task.
Starting today.

Today's Task:
Take mental note, or jot down, a simple mission statement of how you'd like to become more hands on with your kids.

Praising Mom's Mission Statement:
This month I will be more efficient with my time.   I will get my chores done while the kids are napping so when they wake up I can do more hands on activities that are age appropriate for them.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
