Look no further… I don’t normally post about apps but when I was asked to check this one out, I was glad I did and had to share it with you. It’s called PlayTown: My Story Maker and it is a wonderful new app for kids, ages 3-9. To be honest, I had fun with it myself.
It is a simple to use app that explains everything when you enter your name. I love that you can change the facial expressions and even add fun little trinkets to your story. You can add characters and even your own image to the story. It offers a lot of story enhancements like background changes, and a number of props. Next you narrate and select the music for your story. Once you have completed your personalized story, you can share it with friends and family!

This is probably because alcohol increases blood flow to your brain, which can cause migraines and headaches. Red wine, beer, whiskey and champagne are the most common culprits. So keep the Jack & Coke coming but no wine! Just kidding.
There are also many foods that can trigger migraines. For those who suffer, it’s extremely important to identify those trigger foods. By knowing what they are – and avoiding them – migraine sufferers can help reduce the frequency of their migraines.
