Wednesday Wants: Back to School Apps via Parents.com

I thought this was a really cool article by Parents.com.  Apps are becoming a major part of our lives and are not just for our phones, but for personal computers, tablets, notebooks, and laptops (I’m sure a few more could be named).

I thought Easy Reader was a cool one, which allows your to browse through ebooks from libraries.

There are a number of really good suggestions from recipe finders, schedule helpers, brain boosters… make sure you check them out.

Parents.com even has one that is perfect for me a jax, Playgrounds, that allows users to look through, rate, and enter playground information so others can learn about them.

Do you have any apps you love using that help you and/or your family?

Happy Holidays & Other Tidbits

Happy holidays to everyone!  

The new year is quickly approaching, and I got this list of recalls from parents.com magazine and thought we should share it with you (i subscribe to their emails).

The Biggest Recalls of 2011

I purchased the Singlair crib from Ikea, but I don’t have the model number they recalled (my bolts and nuts are just fine!).  However, it’s good to keep up on these items, just in case!

On a happier note…here’s some projects we did with Jax and with our family over the holidays:

Baby Feet Reindeer with Googly Eyes

Use your little one’s foot as the face + red thumprint nose (your’s) + googly eyes + your holiday message

= instant cuteness, fantastic family card. 

(i also wrote in his name, the month, and the year)

 

Baby Hand Print Christmas Tree

Use your little one’s hand print as the tree + finger print ornaments (your’s or your kiddos) + your holiday message

= instant cuteness, fantastic family card OR holiday decoration! 

(i also wrote in his name, the month, and the year)

We also did a family hand print tree:

Hand Print Family Tree

Use the same formula as using your little one’s hand for a christmas tree, but stack hands on top of each other with parents and kids near each other + write names near hand prints.  I want to add “Martin Family Christmas 2011” & “Merry Christmas” to this one too.  Ornaments are family member’s finger prints.  Dee really enjoyed making the ornaments with Meg.

Meg has a post coming up with some pics from our vacation . . .  I think there are some snow angles, christmas tree cutting, and Santa’s Workshop pics in it, but you’ll have to wait and see!

hope you had a great holiday! ash
