Getting Creative with Disney Imagicademy {Review}

Welcome to the third post in our winter boredom busters series, sponsored by Wonder Forge Games! Today we’re playing with two Disney Imagicademy activity kits designed for younger kids Disney Imagicademy Frozen Science Disney Imagicademy Storymation Studio Since the boys got to geek out on Star Wars last week, and seem to have an odd allergy to all things Frozen (Let it Go, guys!), This time it was just us girls – and we had a BLAST! First up: Frozen Science activity kit. It comes with an activity book full of puzzles and science experiments that my daughter was able to do all by herself. The kit comes with a variety of colored pencils, stickers, a mister, rainbow glasses, and colored dye tabs for use in one of the experiments. I really liked that none of the experiments involved materials that I didn’t have on hand, and they really challenged...

Star Wars Game Day {Review}

It’s no secret: we’re a family of geeks and gamers. Star Wars is kind of a thing in our house, so when Wonder Forge Games asked if I’d like to review their latest Star Wars themed board games, I immediately put “Star Wars Game Day” on the calendar. And well…you saw the boys’ reaction to it in our first unboxing video. What you didn’t see was my husband behind the camera. He was geeking out as much as anyone! I was provided products to review by the manufacturer. The opinions expressed in this article are my own. We played three games: Star Wars Pictopia Star Wars Galaxy Hunt Star Wars Star Destroyer Strike Overall, we had a great time. All three games were simple enough for the younger kids to enjoy, but interesting enough for the older ones — and adults — to enjoy as well. We started out...

A Mom’s Virtual Vacation at Walt Disney World

Welcome to those of you joining me from DISTherapy and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 3rd stop on our Magical Blogorail. This month we’re celebrating Mother’s Day with our favorite Mom-approved Disney experiences.  When I think of celebrating Mother’s Day, what really comes to mind is a day where somebody else takes over all the responsibilities of being Mom while I get to sit back and just play and enjoy my family. And who is better at that than Disney? For my Mother’s Day virtual vacation at Walt Disney World, I have two requirements: I get to choose the restaurants, and nobody is allowed to complain – about anything!   This virtual vacation is all about taking it easy – not something I get to do very often! To make that happen, we’ll stay at Disney’s Polynesian resort. Every time I walk into the lobby...

Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann: the Perfect Disney Couple

    Welcome to those of you joining me from DISTherapy and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 4th stop on our Magical Blogorail. This month we’re discussing the ideal Disney couples. To me, that means a couple that can go beyond the first blush, and can keep sweeping each other off their feet for years to come. I’ve gone to Port Royal to bring you Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann: the perfect Disney couple. Captain Jack Sparrow is the over the top star of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, but if you dig a little deeper, you’ll see that the story is really all about Elizabeth Swann and her true love, Will Turner. Elizabeth Swann behaves like a proper English lady, but she’s not afraid to stand up to a crew full of undead pirates and bully her way through just about anyone to rescue...
