I may not be a wine enthusiast, but I am enthusiastic about a glass of wine every now, and then! I have to say, I find it a bit interesting that wine companies are sending me products to review, though. My site is called Kid Friendly Things To Do, so why would they want me to review wine? Well…I think I might have figured this one out. If you look over at the about me section —> over there, you’ll see that I have 4 kids! I think that right there makes me a good candidate for a glass of wine on a Friday night! But, what the heck is an aerator? I did say I’m not a wine enthusiast, right?! Well…last Friday night, I used this cool wine aerator, and discovered exactly what an aerator does exactly.
In the spirit of a full disclosure, I received this product at a heavy discount in exchange for an honest review. Thanks for your support, y’all!Read More
Last fall, my then four year old guy, was all over castles, dungeons and knights. For his fifth birthday party, I thought I’d better plan a knight birthday. His knight birthday came complete with a rented castle! Lucky for me, our local museum looks just like a castle. After I miraculously saw a castle, in the middle of an Indiana town, I walked in and asked about renting it out for a birthday. They had never had a birthday party inside the museum, before ours! I always say, “it never hurts to ask!”. With a castle/old jail, as our birthday place, I thought I’d better get some fitting crafts to go along with the theme. But, with the crazy life of 4 kids, I knew I wanted something simple. This Dollar Tree Cake Pan Knight Shield filled that bill!Read More
These Zucchini Brownies are so moist and “chocolatey”! I’m pulling this one up from the archives with some updated pictures.
The kids would never know these Zucchini Brownies are filled with a vegetable. Well…as long as you don’t tell them the name. That might give it away. I tried them out on my most finicky of eaters – my oldest, Abigail. Abi loved them. She was so excited to be able to add one more “healthy” food into her diet. Of course, it’s masked in gooey, sweet goodness, but it’s a start! My seven year old son, loved putting the zucchini into the food processor, and adding the strange ingredients into the dessert.
Here’s the recipe!:Read More

I bet you’re thinking that the only crafts I do are Minions! Well…lately, yes! That’s pretty much all I’ve concentrated on. But, I promise, I’m going to let my brain switch gears, and move on to life outiside of Minions after this one. I have to tell you, I love this little Minion in a Jar! He’s sitting on my window sill by my kitchen sink. The kids love it too! They love making sand art. It’s a perfect craft for a Minion birthday party! Kids can play with sand, and take home their own personal Minion in a Jar for their bedside table! Here’s the how to for ya:Read More
Simple and Quick are my two favorite ingredients for cooking! Last week I spotted some wild blackberries at the back edge of my parent’s property. With summer coming quickly to a halt, I planned a next day, return trip to go berry picking with the kids. There was a berry jam, or you might even call it sauce, that I wanted to make from some blueberries we picked earlier in the summer. How delicious would adding blackberries be?! Pretty dang delicious!Read More
