Road trips are one of the best ways to vacation, especially when you’re towing along a couple kids. Whether you’re flying cross country and picking up an RV for a week, or just venturing out your backdoor in the minivan for a long weekend of local adventure, seeing what this country has to offer out the windows of a vehicle is a satisfying experience, for both young and old. We recently road tripped through the state of Arizona, from top to bottom, and along the way found great places to recharge our batteries and refuel our bodies, all with a kid-friendly spin. So whether Arizona is hundreds of miles away or right in your backyard, load up the car and the kids and get road trippin’. Leave the hotel and restaurant recommendations to us!

It’s about that time of year where you may be thinking: I need to get healthy and start working out. You’ve already decided that joining a gym, whether it was the constant voice of your nagging best friend (who had the best of intentions of course) or your inner critic, is your next step. Whether you live inside the city limits or not, you’ve got more than just ‘I need a place to get healthy at’ to consider when it comes to signing up for a gym membership. Do they provide child care, lockers, or even decent equipment? Whether or not you are a beginner gym hunter (or huntress), here are ten tips to help you make that leap into fitness before signing on the dotted line and beginning your venture to a healthier lifestyle with a gym membership.
Regular, old “baby shampoo” may have worked for your almost-bald infant, but as your child grows, so does her hair care needs. Perhaps your child has a mop of curls or baby-fine locks — or maybe your little girl is growing her hair long like Elsa! Whatever her hair type, length or texture, there’s a Circle of Friends product for her!
If you’ve ever attempted to dress a small child for winter, you know how long it can take. And, once said child has been sufficiently bundled, there’s the issue of them actually keeping their hat, gloves and scarves on. The solution? The Minkey winter garment from Olie.
After the excitement of the holidays, the winter can seem long, cold and a bit boring. Snow days, cold temperatures and winter rain can drive both kids and parents a little stir crazy! Explore the world this winter with a subscription to Junior Explorers.
Bath time is messy business. Between the water, toys, bubbles and tired kids, there often ends up being more water on the floor than in the tub! That’s why we love the water-conserving, kid-friendly shower wands from Rubber Duckie & Friends.
In an adult-sized world, kids love having their own, kid-sized furniture. But as parents, we don’t want to spend adult-sized prices on kid-sized pieces that won’t fit our kids for more than a year or two. That’s why we love the affordable and customizable children’s furniture from Delta.
Children, whether infants or teenagers, are always learning. As parents, we all want to give our children every opportunity we can to explore, create, and expand their minds. The holidays are a time for fun, and we know that learning should be fun as well. Give gifts to the children in your life that encourage learning. There are so many amazing products for kids that spark their imagination and foster a love for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). We think gifts like these are especially great to give to someone else’s child because not only will the child get so much out of whatever you choose, the parents will be happy with you as well. Everyone is happy and kids are learning while they play. These gifts are a win all around!
With the holidays just around the corner, your child will likely be coming to you with requests for treats to take to his class parties (hopefully, not the night before!).

We’ve all been there: set out the Halloween-themed snacks, turn out the lights, get halfway through watching a Halloween movie with your young children only to realize that it’s way too scary for their innocent eyes. This list of family-friendly Halloween movies will help you maintain Halloween spookiness while also giving you a heads up of which movies will make the kids creep into your bed after watching them.
Today we are talking about tofu.
Tofu gets a bad rap in the non-vegetarian world. Maybe you’ve had a bad tofu experience — think the grayish, rubbery stuff in the nondescript “vegetarian entree” at a wedding. Perhaps you tried to cook tofu yourself, but it ended in disaster — too watery, too mushy, or (horror of horrors!) too bland. Or, you might be like the majority of people, and be just plain turned-off by the watery, white blocks you see in the non-dairy aisle.
So, if you’re not feeling the ‘fu — there’s no way in the world your toddler’s going to go for it. Right?
Today, we are sharing with you 3 delicious, healthy, and toddler-tested tofu recipes your whole family will love — we promise!

Crayons are a staple in every toddler and child’s home. Not only are there probably several different kinds stacked neatly in a box in the art area at home, but there’s usually a few in the bathroom, under the couch, in the car, or in other various places that are completely impossible to get to. Let’s face it, kids love crayons.

Introducing art to your baby at a young age not only gives you something fun to do with them on a daily basis, but it is also a great way to help develop their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
