Healthy. That’s most important.
Wouldn’t it be funny if I left it at that? 🙂
Okay, here’s the real info, just as we found out:
Can’t wait to meet this new little one. I think I’m warming up to this now… 🙂
My kids are crafty. They LOVE doing art projects and sharing them with others. The problem? I’m SO not crafty. I seriously think the last “real” craft I did with my kids was in October 2011, when we made Crayon Hearts. I’m totally not joking.
So when Cami found that Oriental Trading catalog in the mail last month, she totally wanted to buy this kit to make these snowmen ornaments for her friends. You know, this one. And I was all like, “WE CAN TOTALLY MAKE THESE AT HOME! I’M A GOOD MOM! WATCH HOW EASY THIS IS AND WE’LL DO A CRAFT TOGETHER!”
Okay, so really I said, “Cami, I bet we can make those out of marshmallows, markers, glue and sticks. All things we already have at home.”
Here’s what we did:
This project seriously cost $1 for us to make – the price of a bag of large marshmallows.
We delivered these to our friends yesterday and the girls had a blast. It was our way of letting our friends know that we were thinking of them this Christmas season. You should try them. They really turned out so cute and it’s totally a craft that any of us can do.
So when my girls found out we were getting to review Just Dance 4 they were pretty excited. But when they found out we were getting to review Just Dance Disney Party? Well, that was a whole different level of excitement.
The primary reason for their excitement is that they know EVERY. SINGLE. SONG on the game. There are songs from classic movies like Mary Poppins to new shows like Shake It Up. And I like it because I don’t have to worry about the words to songs being inappropriate for them to be listening to over and over and over…
The game definitely targets kids – I would even say younger kids. Cameran (6) absolutely loved playing the Disney Party version. The moves are easier, more repetitive, and the songs are shorter. And she actually WON several games she played against Adam and Alaina.Speaking of Alaina: Oh dear, this child, she is CRAZY playing these Just Dance games. And while she loves the music on this Disney version, the time between songs moves a little too slow for her. You have to pick your avatar with each song and you can’t have a profile like in the normal Just Dance games. So high scores aren’t specific to players – just a record of the score by someone, anyone. Regardless, she still had (and continues to have) a blast playing.Know who else likes the game? This guy.
While he normally just stomps his foot and spins around, he totally doesn’t care. And actually, the last time we played, he scored over 3,000 points! Which is pretty amazing for a toddler doing circles and waving his arms around. 🙂 (I know, the video would have been great, but I had to use Alaina’s camera and the sound didn’t pick up well so just wasn’t worth including. Once I find our battery charger I’ll tape him again and post it. You’ll want to come back for that one. 🙂 )
Here’s the thing I love most about Just Dance Disney Party: our entire family plays together. And we have fun. And no one fights. Did you read that?! AND NO ONE FIGHTS.
It’s a Christmas miracle, y’all. A freaking Christmas miracle.
