Our Wonderful November Sponsors

Each month, we like to thank our wonderful sponsors and affiliates and share a little more about each one.

It’s official!  The New Fantasyland is now open in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.  And if you thought this was enough of a reason to hop on a plane, you’ll love the current Stay, Play & Dine Deal. Save up to $600 when you purchase a 5-night/6-day Magic Your Way package for a family of 4 that includes room, tickets and a dining plan at select Disney Resort hotels for arrivals most nights January 2 through March 7, 2013.  You must book by December 31, 2012.

And don’t forget, all of Beaches & Dreams’ services are free.  They specialize in all Disney vacations (including Adventures by Disney, Disney Cruise Line, Disneyland and Disney World) among your other travel needs.  Call 1-877-R-Dreams (1-877-737-3267) and tell them you saw their ad here.

Creative Holiday Gifts for kids ages 3-7. Shop Kiwi Crate! ››

Kiwi Crate is a monthly subscription service where your child receives a themed box of “projects that spark creativity and curiosity,” all centered around a particular theme (think Dinosaurs, Gardens, Sea and Space).  Each crate has two-three carefully designed and kid-tested projects, targeted at kids ages 3-7.  All materials and inspiration are included.  


From a personal testimony, I love getting Kiwi Crates each month.  They are fun, creative and really engage the kids.  Last month was all about shadows and light.  The kids made a cool kaleidoscope  shadow puppets and the crate even included flashlights.  (Nice little flashlights that are not battery powered . . . you just crank the handle and it lasts quite awhile.)  Obviously, the creator of the kid has kids too!


And just when I think they can’t top the last box, the next one is even better.  This month was about music and may just be the kids’ favorite so far.  I am constantly impressed by their creativity and the ease of everything they include.
