Easter Chocolate Candy Options from RM Palmer

Another year has passed and the Easter of 2018 will make its own memories. It will be a new year of family dinner, Easter baskets and photos with the Easter bunny. RM Palmer made sure you have some new options too. Some hip and some with just a little extra added to our familiar chocolate candies.

How fun are these? From a fun letter game you can create with the kids to making their candy time fun, these RM Palmer Eggwords Eggs are a milk chocolate with a smooth, creamy center.

While the Eggwords are Anthony’s favorite, these Pretzel Easter Eggs are my new favorite. I had plans of stashing these for the boys baskets, but I’ll have to buy more because they did not last with me.

The Giving Manger – Doing Good Things This Season

The Giving Manger - Doing Good Things This Season

When you think back to Holiday memories as a child it is events and service we tend to remember over what was in our stocking or pile of gifts on Christmas morning. When you make giving back and serving others an event your kids are likely to carry that memory with them for years, even decades and to their own children. The event and new home tradition? The Giving Manger.

[bctt tweet=”The Giving Manger will bring the real spirit of the season back into your home” username=”3sonshavei”]

It’s so simple yet the impact is great. It is a box and in that box is a book, a wood manger, some strands of straw and a baby Jesus. The idea is to build the manger using the straw so baby Jesus can lie peacefully. However, you cannot put straw into the manger until your child completes a service. For each good deed or chore they do to help you and others they get to lay down a piece of straw.

Once they have built a manger Jesus can be placed. The book really ties it all together as it helps the kids understand the real meaning of the Holidays and why we should serve others.

Let this year be the year we start a new tradition of giving back. Need ideas of service you can do with your family? Print a list here. Purchase on their website or on Amazon.

Holiday Gift Guide Feature: Schleich Dinosaur Puzzle Set

Schleich-Dinosaur-Set | Parenting Healthy

Since 1935, Schleich has brought children playable figures. What began as action figures has now turned into dinosaurs and horses as well as familiar characters like the Peanuts and Snoopy. The design of the products and the creation of the required tools are done in house. This way they can control the initial vital steps of creating a new product.

For the dinosaur fan, there are some fun figures and sets from Schleich that are sure to make them roar on their holiday morning. There are individual dinosaur figures of all species and these figure and puzzle pad sets. I have the new Mini Dinosaur with Lava Field Puzzle. The puzzle is a simple platform to help creativity flow as they play with their figures. Pair the puzzle sets with their dinosaur and cave play set for full action.

You can find these sets at many retailers as you shop for the Holidays. Most likely you owned Schleich play sets yourself as a child and you can now pass on the fun with your own child.

A Holiday Event at Snowflake Lane in Bellevue, Wa

Living in the Pacific Northwest brings a lot of fun year round events full of music, traditions and fun for the entire family. The winters up here bring snow to the numerous mountains making the Cascades a beautiful backdrop to many towns all season. From Santa Trains in Mt Rainier to Snowflake Lane in Bellevue, these are traditions many families repeat each year. This year we started a new tradition and with my parents, brother, sisters and nephews we all spent an evening in Bellevue Square so the kids can experience the Snowflake Lane show.


At 7pm during the Holidays, the road is closed for an hour in Bellevue Square and the streets fill with crowds as far as you can see each direction and in the skywalk over head with families ready for an entertaining and interactive show.
Characters are up and down the crowds interacting with people, bands play up and down the sidewalk, street and through the skywalk. In the street there are multiple performances from bands, dancers and other entertainers as you enjoy the music of the holidays. About halfway into the show, cue snow! These ‘suds’ or snow fall up and down the lane and the kids go nuts!

Snowflake Lane is a well known family event worth the drive to the Eastside in the Seattle area. Typically you want to get there in plenty of time to find parking and grab some dinner. We all met at the Cheesecake Factory for dinner, wandered through shops and near the start of the show, found a spot to stand along the lane. You are outside of the mall so there is plenty of shopping you can do and make a day of it.
The boys were so thrilled the entire show and we will have to make this a yearly event. I am just sad I waited so long to experience Snowflake Lane with my son. http://snowflakelane.com/
