Homework can be a stressful affair for everyone involved. Juggling after-school activities, meal prep and housework, it often takes a village to get reading assignments, flashcards and worksheets completed at a decent hour. We've yet to find out how to make schoolwork magically disappear altogether, but we can tip parents off on how to make the situation more manageable. Here's how to create a quiet, supervised and streamlined area where kids can study at home.
It's easy for parents to get spooked trying to choose the perfect Halloween costumes for their little ones. Between the overwhelming choices (princess or witch? superhero or villain?) to the barrage of opinions from their little boys and ghouls, deciding on the perfect costumes for kids can be, well, tricky. But with a little help from the Happiest Place on Earth, we've conjured up the best Disney Halloween costumes for kids this year. Whether it's her favorite Disney Junior character (you're singing the theme song now, aren't you?) or his beloved Pixar pal, here's some supercalifragilistic inspiration to make your little hero or magical creature's Halloween dreams come true.
Thinking of taking a trip to Adventure Bay? Does your little pup squeal with delight whenever her favorite rescue dogs help a friend in need? Whether you're a fan of PAW Patrol or just a parental bystander, those precious pups' paw prints are all over the fabric of your daily life. It's only natural that for your little one's birthday, she'd want to celebrate in a big canine way. So, we dug deep and took to the skies searching for the best PAW Patrol party ideas. Remember: No party is too big, no celebration too small. If you need the paw-fect party ideas just yelp for help — or read on for some inspiration. We're on the case!
When school's out for summer and your kids are home during those long, hot days, sometimes a cool treat is just what you both need. But why not make an activity out of that afternoon snack and get your kiddos involved in the kitchen? From popsicles to hand pies, here's our top kitchen gadget picks for making summer treats with your kids.
Back-to-school shopping is fun with these outfit ideas that parents and kids will love. These outfits will show off their personality and give them the confidence to tackle the upcoming school year.
Much like the still-hot onesie trend favored by bump-free fashionistas for the past few years, maternity rompers and jumpsuits are all the rage with the mother-to-be set as well. Casual, elegant, sporty and most importantly — comfortable! — these all-in-one outfits are nothing but versatile and especially easy to wear. Check out this collection of maternity one-piece jumpsuits; there's something chic for every mama at every phase of her pregnancy.
Unlike a Christmas birthday, which can get easily overlooked during the holiday commotion, a Halloween birthday party is a special unicorn — much like your little princess, superhero or monster. And just like those peanut butter cups you're giving out to trick-or-treaters, Halloween and birthdays are "two great things that go great together!" No need to rack your brain for some far-out theme — costumes and candy are a given. But you can still flex your creativity and choose unique decorations, invitations and much more to make your kiddo's Halloween birthday party a howling success. Keep scrolling for some frightfully fun inspiration.
Whether your child's school uniform is a sweater and khakis or a sweet dress, these classic pieces earn an A-plus for style.
Between the swollen ankles and that growing belly, pregnancy is no joke! Don't limit yourself to restricting pants and try these comfy maternity leggings instead.
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. It should be a room that bursts with color and piques curiosity with a strategic variety of learning and play toys. 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.
Summer vacation means one thing: Your yard is about to become a sea of kids' toys that have found a new home in the outdoors. If you're struggling to keep up with the chaos, shop this list of genius finds from Houzz that make staying organized a breeze.
As a child, did you pretend to live in a castle by arranging old blankets over the couch and chairs? There was something so fun about sitting underneath mom's old sheets. Now think how much more awesome it would be to actually have a bed that looks like a mini house! Enter the toddler house bed, also known as a Montessori floor bed.
These beds are exactly what they sound like: Picture a house-shaped frame above the mattress, complete with windows, a door and a kitchen (OK, just kidding about the kitchen). But now picture your little angel's precious head resting underneath one of these magical creations.
While this may seem like a cool, new way to sleep, the floor bed concept actually dates back to the early 20th century teaching philosophy called the Montessori Method, which focuses on placing everything a child needs to learn and explore at the child's level. So, by placing their bed on the floor, you give children independence and a chance to learn on their own terms.
Here, we've rounded up some of our favorite toddler house beds that are ready to take up residence in dreamland.
Your kids will love this wearable tech, and you'll love that they're able to build healthier habits with these fun fitness and activity trackers.
Summer's almost over and it won't be long before it's time to head back to school. But why make your kids spend the last days of vacation in stores when you can do all of your shopping online at Target?
