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.
Winter can feel long and boring for kids and parents alike when the weather prevents outside play. But with these fun board games, there's no need for the winter blues—get the whole family laughing and learning with family game night.
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.
Fingerlings were one of the hottest toys last holiday season. In fact, they were so popular that Fingerlings Minis and even Fingerlings keychains soon followed. But this year, Fingerlings HUGS are at the top of every kid's wish list and one of the best Christmas toys of 2018. The adorable interactive plushies feature long arms that can wrap around your kid for a cuddle, and they also give kisses, giggle, repeat after your child and — whoops! — pass gas. The collection includes animals such as a unicorn and sloth, but we have to say that Fingerlings monkeys Boris and Bella might just be the cutest toys ever. While you'll likely find sweet Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals on these cute critters on toy store shelves across the country, there are even better deals — and exclusive animals! — available online at Amazon, Walmart and Target now. So, stop arguing with your little one about whether they're getting a real puppy or kitten, and tell them Santa might just deliver a monkey, sloth or unicorn pal instead! Shop the Fingerlings collection below.
The bathroom is where we start and end our day. If it's a fun and welcoming space, morning routines run smoother and bath time is a breeze. Parents don't have to dedicate their single-bathroom home to a youthful theme, but making it appeal to children will engrain the importance of self-care and hygiene at an early age. Here are 10 kid-friendly ideas for decorating a bathroom that everyone will love.
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.

The fur is flying again this holiday season! Pomsies, the fluffy interactive toys that were a huge hit last year, are once again topping the lists of the best Christmas toys for kids in 2018 and selling out fast. Pomsies—as most parents already know—are petite, supercute fluff balls that wrap around kids' wrists, hair, clothing or backpacks, and have eyes that light up and change color, depending on their mood. The collection of in-demand virtual pets (move over, Fingerlings!) is mostly made up of kitties such as Pomsies Sherbert, but the pom-pom pack also includes Pomsies unicorn Luna, Pomsies dragon Zoey and Pomsies koala Sydney. Both Amazon and Walmart currently have Pomsies in stock, but they're going quickly (so maybe don't wait for those Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals). Here are some of the most popular Pomsies to shop right now, plus where to buy them.
Walmart recently released its top contenders for best Christmas toys of 2018, just in time for Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday sales. Brands like Power Rangers, Jurassic World, Transformers and Play-Doh are perennial favorites on our must-have kids toy list. But this year, we're equally excited about the comeback of Polly Pocket, as well as some newer trendy toys from Little Live Pets, Pomsie and Grumblies. Hold onto your pocketbooks and ready your wallets, because Walmart is stocked up with the most in-demand toy brands and products this year. Peruse our top kids toy choices below.
Originally touted as a tool to help kids stay calm and focused, the fidget spinner quickly took off as one of the most sought-after toys of the year.
