Are you looking for a spring craft other than decorating eggs? Here’s a cute idea, pretzel butterflies! It’s not for eating, but will keep the kiddos occuppied using their creativity, yet very little money. In fact, you probably have most of the supplies already in your home!

My 20 month old has been showing a ton of interest in what we do in the kitchen. She likes playing with her own toy pots and pans and felt food, but when we are cooking something she NEEDS TO KNOW RIGHT NOW what Mama and Dada are doing waaaaay up on the counter she can’t reach. As an anniversary present for both of us (and to save our arms from the constant barrage of “Up, up up!” demands) I bought a Guidecraft Kitchen Helper and now little Lainey can stand at counter height and cook along with us.

Earth Day Movie “African Cats” – Kids Book Giveaway!

Win a pair of African Cats books: Sita the Cheetah & A Lion’s Pride!

Disneynature “African Cats”

An epic true story set against the backdrop of one of the wildest places on Earth, “African Cats” captures the real-life love, humor and determination of the majestic kings of the Savanna. Narrated by Oscar®-nominated actor Samuel L. Jackson, the story features Mara, an endearing lion cub who strives to grow up with her mother’s strength, spirit and wisdom; Sita, a fearless cheetah and single mother of five mischievous newborns; and Fang, a proud leader of the pride who must defend his family from a rival lion and his sons. An awe-inspiring adventure blending family bonds with the power and cunning of the wild, “African Cats” leaps into theatres on Earth Day, April 22, 2011.

See African Cats, Save the Savanna!

As the April 22 opening of the awe-inspiring “African Cats” approaches, Disneynature is tapping into the true power of social media by building awareness of its “See ‘African Cats,’ Save the Savanna” program. During the film’s opening week (April 22-28), a portion of the proceeds from that week’s ticket sales will be donated to AWF through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund to protect the Amboseli Wildlife Corridor, a passage between the Amboseli, Tsavo West and Chyulu Hills National Parks that is frequently used by lions, cheetahs, elephants, zebras, giraffes and a host of other animals in the African savanna. For more information about the movie and the “See ‘African Cats,’ Save the Savanna” initiative, check out Disney.com/AfricanCats.
