This is a Holiday Must!

One of my favorite things to do in December is to take a trip to Dyker Heights in Brooklyn to see the completely over-the-top decorated houses. Last year, we brought out of town friends.

New Toy for Fidgety Hands

My kids just discovered the CuberSpeed Rainbow Ball–another game for fidgety hands but this one also exercises the brain. It’s sort of like a Rubik’s Cube but round. It has 12 holes and 11 color balls. The objective is to scramble the colored balls, then figure out how to get them all back into their matching colored slots in […]
