PostHeaderIcon #Free PlayTown Story Building App for ages 3-9

It’s amazing how  kids as young as 2, can grab a phone or iPod, unlock it, and find their way to their favorite apps. I don’ t know about you but I am pretty sure I was probably eating dirt when I was 2. There are so many apps available for kids these days, it’s hard to go through them all and find the great ones.

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!

PostHeaderIcon 2nd Annual Healthy Families, Helping Kids with PFK and Meijer

Many families are thinking about eating healthier as the new school year commences. I know that the schools state that the lunches are “healthy” but, after spending many lunch times with the boys last year, I am not happy with them eating it. I do humor Royal sometimes and let him get it because he asks. I am happy you tell you that Produce for Kids wants to help kids eat healthfully at home AND in the classroom.

Produce for Kids is teaming up with Meijer stores for the second annual Healthy Families, Helping Kids campaign to raise money for local health and nutrition-based classroom projects through DonorsChoose.org. read the rest of this entry »
