As many of you already know, I am a self-professed bag diva. I am always in search of the “perfect” bag. I have collected more purses, totes and diaper bags than I can count! M’duine gives me a fair amount of grief about it, actually. As do my kids, and my friends, and the rest of my family. I love bags!

4th of July Party Games Pack Review and Flash Giveaway

Congratulations, Darryl S.!

I am always looking for fun games and activities for the younglings. They seem to especially appreciate themed activities. With Independence Day coming up, I was excited to be given the opportunity to review the 4th of July Party Games Pack from Python Printable Games.

The pack retails for $19.95. At the time of writing, it consists of:

  •  Independence Day Trivia game
  •  Independence Day Mad Libs
  •  Patriotic Trivia match game
  •  Presidential Trivia game
  •  State Nicknames match game
  •  Beers of the World placemat game
  •  Nasty British Food trivia
  •  Military Trivia
  •  Baseball Trivia
  •  Survival of the Fittest party game
  •  Red, White & Blue Scavenger Hunt
  •  Happy 4th of July Left-Right
  •  American History trivia
  •  Independence Day Synonyms game
  •  Fast Food trivia
  •  US Beers match game
  •  Tangled Tongue Twisters Tango
  •  Pick the Party Stars
  •  Meet Your Match acting game
  •  The Color of Music

According to Python Printable Games:

Some games are suitable for just kids, some for teen to adult, and some for adults only.
We have tried to reflect the typical multi-generational mix at Independence Day parties, so there is something for all ages and tastes.
Our games don’t come with restrictions or time limits. You can keep these games forever and reuse them on other occasions, so games that might not be useful now may come in handy later!

I looked through all the games and picked out the ones that I thought were appropriate for my younglings (ages 3-15) and that they would enjoy. The Adults-only games are easy to pick out and looked like they could be fun also, I just didn’t have a good set of testers!

The Younglings thought the Independence Day Mad-Libs and Tangled Tongue Twisters Tango were the most fun. Even the youngest had fun trying to repeat the tongue twisters after the older ones read them! They found most of the trivia games and the Synonyms game too difficult. Venture Scout (15yo) even thought they were too tough.

Overall, it was a fun set of games that is worth the investment, particularly if you have a family gathering coming up!

The generous people at Python Printable Games have offered a 4th of July Party Games Pack for one of  my readers. Enter at Silverdragonheart’s facebook fan page (click on the Rafflecopter tab).

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Carry Me Please!

I have worn all of my children, starting with my oldest (Geneva), 20 years ago, in a “crotch dangler”. I continued to use that until she was past her third birthday. She was very thin, so under the weight limit, but she had to lay her head on my shoulder so that I could see to walk! It was so much simpler to carry her in the front pack than to try and haul an umbrella stroller around with us on the city bus.

My ex-husband, Griffin, and I and our bff Viking were backpacking/camping/hiking junkies at the time, so we purchased a KeltyKIDS frame carrier when Geneva was 3.5-ish. We still have the same carrier today! It’s wonderful for carrying a child who has good head and neck control. It used to have a little rucksack that zipped to the back, but it was lost many years ago. DD#2 (Phoenix) likes to carry our now 3yo ds in this sometimes. It is very comfortable to wear, even for extended trips, and wears much like an external frame camping pack.

I had one of the original commercially (but no longer) available slings with Phoenix. We enjoyed some success with that, but used it mostly as a front pack, since it was convertible.

With Bubba (ds#1) I had a ring sling with padded rails, and a rebozo. I still have the same rebozo 11 years later. I love the versatility of the rebozo. I never mastered the back carry, but hug, kangaroo and hip carries were used with him and all three of his younger siblings. It has also been used as a nursing cover, pram blanket and super hero cape.

I can’t remember getting any new carriers with Monkey Man (ds#2). It was so hard to keep him still, even in a carrier, that I think I just kept the rebozo in the diaper bag and used that when he got tired enough that he wanted to cuddle.

When Boo (dd#3) came along I was involved in a parenting group and I was the crunchiest mama in the bunch. So I taught classes on Baby Wearing, Cloth Diapering, Natural Baby Care Products and Making Your Own Baby Food. At this time I purchased my first unpadded ring sling (a Maya Sling). I still have this sling eight years later and I love it!

The only carrier we added to the mix after Stud (ds#3) was born was a homemade stretchy wrap. It was FFS from a mom blogger who I’ve been following for years, and it was made out of bright orange microrib. Stud was born while I was still a full-time university student and he came to school with us. We lived 30+ miles from the university that M’duine (dh) and I were both attending and we arranged our course loads such that Stud could come with us, or one of us or a close friend was available to watch him. Needless to say, I wore Stud a LOT. I got a fair amount of flak for my “crossing guard” wrap, but he loved it, and I could wear him for hours and nurse discretely, so we were all good!

Anyway, all of that history was a lead-in to the really cool giveaway that is being hosted by Taylor Made Mama …
