Father’s Day :
By Estella Editor - POSTED Jun 4, 2014
Father’s Day is less than two weeks away, but that’s still enough time to prepare. Here are some ideas for gifts & ways to spend the day with dad that we’ve found around the web…
A photo gift is always a wonderful option, and these leather bound photo books are a both sweet and practical idea.
A mustache baby rattle, decorative pillow, or blanket for dad, from baby.
Great gift tech ideas for the fitness fanatic.
For families that love to travel, the The NY Times 36 Hours Guide: 150 Weekends in the USA & Canada will guarantee a fun weekend adventure, whether it be in a big city or undiscovered town full of character and charm.
A superhero doll for a superhero dad.
For the car enthusiast, a sweet father/soon book to enjoy together.
Breakfast recipes the kids can definitely help out with.
When in doubt, a witty Father’s Day card is always the perfect finishing touch for dads who appreciate a sense of humor.
This custom wrapping paper will make whatever you give dad that much better. Personalize it with his face, and then give your kids a marker to add fun (or funny details) like a mustache or pirates patch.
P.S. In NYC? Check out one of these brunch spots (here are some other Father’s Day outing ideas happening around the city this year).

Baby Resolutions :
By Admin - POSTED Dec 21, 2012
Well, it’s that time of the year again – it’s time to put together your New Year’s resolutions (and vow not to break them no matter what happens!) But have you ever thought about New Year’s resolutions for your baby? Here are a few of our favorites that will help your little one grow and bring fun to the entire family!
It’s time to begin learning a language – a foreign language! New studies show that babies have a penchant for learning multiple languages in their earliest infancy. This could be your golden opportunity to not only teach them a language you know, but to learn a new language together – parent and baby. We live in a global world, so why not raise a global baby?
Get rid of that pacifier! There are new studies that show that overuse of a pacifier beyond a certain age can have detrimental effects on the normal development of babies’ teeth. The pacifier should only be used when your baby goes to sleep, and then should promptly be removed. By two years of age, you should be doing your utmost to help them break this habit.
Music makes the world go ‘round! Don’t neglect the musical benefits on brain development for your baby. There are a lot of different ways to promote musical development. Sing to your baby, sing with your baby, and don’t be afraid to start music lessons for your baby earlier than grade school. Children benefit from better spatial reasoning and a host of other things!
Explore the power of art. It helps promote communication, complex problem-solving, and many other real-life skills! So don’t be afraid of a little splattered paint – it’s doing them a lot of good.
Don’t underestimate the power of routine. Once your baby is comfortably established and is ready to begin a steady routine, don’t hesitate to put your plan to work. A healthy routine is great for anyone, especially a baby. If you expect your baby to fall asleep by a certain time, then you have to set up a routine that falls in line with that. Build your routine around specific events like mealtime.
These are just a few ways that you can get innovative when it comes to actually implementing resolutions. Remember to have fun with these ideas and you will definitely be on your way to a new baby and a new you!

We love the look of wonder on a child’s face after turning ordinary household items into creations that let their imaginations run wild. The idea is not just to create the most lifelike creations, but rather give the children items and a goal for what these things should become with a little effort. We love the creative use of cardboard tubes to make this gallant castle.
There are only several key things to consider when you indulge in craft time. Make sure you control the dangerous items such as scissors, sharp pens, and other such things.
Next, always make sure you have extra materials. You will be amazed how creative children will be when actually given the creative license to experiment. It’s impressive! Color is a big part of the creative process, so be sure to have between 32 and 64 colors on hand so they can feel free to express themselves.

Be sure to allow them to take the lead in creative direction, or else it will seem like a chore to the children. Don’t be afraid to let the project veer off into unknown territory. Sometimes that can be the fun part! Whether you choose to go big, or keep it simple, arts and craft time is an enriching experience for the entire family!
