If your kids immediately go to glowing electronics to keep themselves entertained, it's time to get them thinking outside the box. And brain teasers are the perfect place to start. From games to activity books to classic puzzles like Rubik's Cube, brain teasers will get your little ones using their noodle and developing cognitive-strategy and decision-making skills while having fun. The brain teasers below, available at popular retailers including Target and Amazon, are perfect for everyone from toddler to pre-teen, and are a great way to unplug and connect with each other. In a world consumed by iPads and TV, even one hour away from the screen is a step in the right direction.
Whether your kid is trying to master the art of comedy or just needs a break from the electronics, a joke book can be a great way to get them reading. Reading jokes books can help your kids build vocabulary, improve social skills and develop problem-solving skills by figuring out silly riddles. Check out these cool, clean and kid-approved joke books from retailers like Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Walmart.
Adults are due for some much-needed peace and quiet as the Christmas craze fizzles out. To carve out some precious alone time this winter, design a space that will hold your kids' attention for hours a day.

To help you create this space we rounded up 10 playroom staples to help kids battle cabin fever while they're holed up inside on snow days.
Sometimes it's best to think outside of the box. Unfortunately, cleanup time is not one of them. As all parents know, kiddos believe the perfect spot for storing their toys is on the floor. While this might be convenient for all of those dolls and dinosaurs to swiftly spring into action when it's time to play, the massive mess probably isn't a good look for mom. Luckily, for everyone's sake, there are super cool storage solutions that are not only functional, they're also fun and perfect for bedrooms and playrooms. Parents can even turn tidying up into a teachable moment. "Introducing kids early on to organizing will set them up for success later in life," says Tracy McCubbin, decluttering expert and author of This Book Will Set You Free: The 7 Emotional Clutter Blocks and How to Finally Conquer Them. "Organizing their toys when they are little will teach kids how to keep their future homes neat and even manage their schedules." Time to round up the best storage solutions for keeping your kid's play space looking spick-and-span! Check out our these awesome picks to give those games and gadgets a stylish home while making mom and dad happy. Toys in the bin or bust!
