20 Gifts to Give Kids when they already have plenty of Stuff

pinterest

Unknown

It’s almost Christmas time and your probably telling yourself, my kiddos do NOT need more STUFF! Don’t get me wrong, I still love buying toys and clothes for my kiddos but when family and friends ask what to get my kids I always revert to the feeling that they don’t need more stuff. If you feel like this too, why not ask your family and friends to forgo the gifts and get them one of the “non-toy” gifts we suggested here.

The list comes from my children, Bella & Beckler, when I asked them “What would you like to get for Christmas that isn’t stuff?” They even asked if instead we would give them some of these items instead of more toys!

Let us know what items you would add to this list?!!

THE DRESS:

We used a denim dress that we found at Old Navy and bought some plaid, flannel material (in small bundle) at a craft store. We cut the fabric into squares and sewed in random places on the dress to make it look like patches. Bella also wore a flannel purple long sleeve shirt and leggings (it’s going to be cold Halloween Nights). To top off the look, she wore two different stripped socks and hiking boots.

We’re going to DisneySMMC!!!

We are soooo excited!!!!!!!! I’ve been invited to join a wonderful event that Disney Social Media Moms Celebration is putting on with the magical place Disney. This will be the first time me and my family, husband and 2 children, will be attending, and also the first time it will be on Land and Sea. So needless to say the excitement level is at an all time high!!!

This event is the brainchild of Disney Social Media Moms Celebration and is an invite only for like minded social media personalities, to celebrate and inspire each other. We begin with 2 days at Disney World, then followed by 3 night cruise aboard Disney’s Cruise ship the Wonder.

I’m beyond excited because the last time we were on Disney’s property my children were 1 and 3 years old and now they are 8 and 10 years old. So being able to take them to this magical place will be an amazing life time memory, and a really fun thing is, they won’t know they are going until the day of. I will be sure to post the video of their surprise on my blog. So stay tuned.

So we start out with 2 days at Walt Disney World, which will be so fun, and can’t wait to see all the joy on my kids faces. I will be sure to video all of the fun and excitement so everyone can share in the Disney bliss. Then we will board the Disney Wonder Cruise Ship, where we begin our voyage to Disney’s Castaway Cay.

Castaway Cay is an amazing island that is owned by Disney and is exclusive to Disney’s Cruisers.There is so much to do at this island I can’t wait to arrive. There is a family beach which is so serene, a wonderful place to relax and watch the kids splash and play. I don’t have all the details of the scheduled activities yet, but knowing that it’s Disney, I’m sure there will be some memories made.

Here we are at Castaway Cay, if you can’t see video go HERE to watch!

Free Printable MOANA Activity Sheets – SuperDuperKidsBlog

Here’s the MOANA Trailer to help get you excited about this movie!

unnamed

Here is what MOANA is about. . .

“Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one knows exactly why. Moana is about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli‘i Cravalho) meets the mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”), produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”), and featuring music by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foa‘i, “Moana” sails into U.S. theaters Nov. 23, 2016″

Why we are excited to see MOANA:

1) We really want to see if MOANA will be able to save everyone.
2) We really LOVE the Moana is an adventurous teenager who wants to save her village.
3) The MUSIC!! We’ve heard a few songs and they are fantastic. We love that it’s all new music from Lin-Manuel Miranda
4) Dwayne Johnson!! He’s one of our favorite actors and he’s super funny!!
5) MAUI’s magical hook! We can’t wait to see all the things he can turn into.

Let us know why YOU are excited to watch MOANA?!!!
