Once all the holiday parties have died down and parents are back to work, the winter doldrums start to set in. Just because it's cold outside, that doesn't mean outdoor activities are out of the question. On the contrary, playing in the snow is one of the best ways to burn off (or chill out) all that pent-up energy. Plus, besides skating and sledding, there are all sorts of creative toys, games and even productive — snow chores, anyone? — things to do in the great, winter outdoors for kids and they're all available on Amazon now.
Dressing after baby can be a difficult task. While your maternity clothes may not fit anymore, there's a chance you're not ready for your pre-baby clothes—and that's totally normal! Losing the baby weight healthily takes time, and it can take a while for the uterus to shrink back to its normal size. For the in-between period, finding great postpartum clothes can make all of the difference. For a range of clothes that are flattering, supportive and stretchy enough to accommodate your post-baby body, check out these stylish options.
Home is where the heart is, but it's also where crawling babies and curious tots can cause serious injury to themselves. Keep your little one safe with baby proofing gear such baby gates, child monitors, safety locks and guards, and pacifiers and teethers, that are specially designed for children's safety.
School's out, and as the temperatures start to heat up, creating a summer reading list is a cool way for parents to connect with their kids and foster a love of learning. This month, Save the Children has launched a reading campaign, 100 Days of Reading, to get kids excited about books.
"Knowing what's at stake for children in America in terms of summer learning loss was a motivating factor for Save the Children to create this easy-to-do 100 Days of Reading campaign," said Carolyn Miles, CEO of Save the Children. "Read a Story, Change Their Story has the potential to make transformational change for children. We've set an ambitious goal to log 100 million minutes of reading this summer to benefit every child and hope you'll join us."
We've rounded up a list of page-turners by age group to entertain your kiddos and make them want to pick up a book and not put it down during the lazy days of summer. Help Save the Children reach 100 million minutes by logging your reading time together with the kids.
