For families that don’t get to see each other regularly, family reunions are a prime opportunity for taking photos, making memories and creating the bonds that makes that togetherness so special. As we get bogged down in the day to day of our own smaller family units, it’s important to spend time making sure the kiddos know who they are and where they come from. Family reunions are a great way to build family memories that you’ll laugh about for years. While just getting together is sometimes a challenge, once you are together, games can ensure that everyone will have fun and get to know each other. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite games that will keep the whole crew in stitches.

When your work is about motivating and maximizing a child’s potential, you just may be on to something greater outside of the typical family unit. As a mother of three herself, Dr. Laura Jana considered the essential needs of foster children – going beyond food and shelter by providing toys, books, and school supplies; all the things taken for granted when a child has to leave the home suddenly and unexpectedly. Dr. Jana is particularly focused on collective impact, technology-driven innovations in health and education, social impact finance, and fostering cross-collaborations to improve the well-being of children, families and communities.

A smartphone case is a necessity — it protects your expensive investment from the wear and tear of everyday use! However, most heavy-duty cases are pretty boring — and the fun, designer cases don’t offer much in the way of actual protection. That’s why we love Casetify.
If you’re entertaining this holiday season, coasters are a must! However, while coasters undeniably serve an important function, most generally leave much to be desired in the decor department. That’s why we love the whimsical and colorful designs from Coastermatic.

Plus the Chance to Score $7,500+ in Prizes
The First Years, a leading manufacturer of juvenile products for more than 60 years, is a brand that embraces an honest view of parenting – babies don’t come with an instruction manual, and there is no such thing as a perfect parent. To celebrate the real journey of parenthood, The First Years is looking for a cast of characters from a wide variety of backgrounds to star in their “Welcome to The Family” (or WTF!) online reality series.
You could win:
- A starring role in the “Welcome to The Family” (or WTF!) online reality series

- Submit a Video: Parents will be asked to share a 30- to 60-second video that shows what parenting moments are really like in their home – the good, the bad and the “I-can’t-believe-that-happened” moments. Think reality TV, only actually real – no holds barred!
