This winter has been especially rough with all the snowfall - not just inches in some states, but it's coming down in feet!  With all that snowfall and freezing temperatures, playing outside isn't always an option for a lot of kids.  So with that in mind, parents should be prepared to hear the famous child cry of, "I'm bored!" One simple way to keep kids busy for hours can be summed up in one simple word...costumes! Kids love them!  Some of our children's favorite shows are on Nickelodeon and the Disney Channel.  There's nothing better for a child than to be able to dress up as one of their favorite characters.  Besides the superheroes and princesses, children will love the Yo Gabba Gabba costumesand the Sponge Bob costumes!  Encouraging your child to use his or her imagination and letting their creative juices flow is a great way for them to have hours of fun when they're stuck inside on a wintery day!

School BusChristmas break is over and the school's are back in full swing.  Another thing that is in full swing is this crazy winter weather!  Wow can you believe all the snow that's falling all over the country?  Here in the Midwest we're getting another round of the white stuff and it's coming down strong.  So even though school is back in session, some children are getting plenty of snow days added to their schedule.  I know my children love snow days, but they don't like the part about making up the days at the end of the school year.  One thing young kids like about school is all the classroom holiday parties.  February has a few holidays coming up where they'll get to have party's in school - Valentine's Day, President's Day and Groundhogs Day.  Another fun day in February that a lot of schools celebrate is the "100th day of school" day.  It's a big deal to some elementary schools and they make it a fun day for the children with lots of games, crafts and fun!

The most romantic holiday of the year is by far, February 14th Valentine's Day!   A day for couples everywhere to shower their significant other with flowers, candy, cards and romantic getaways. Valentine's Day is also a big day for marriage proposals.  With love in the air, the popular question, "Will you marry me?" is heard loud and clear by men of all ages across the country.  With so much romance going around it's not hard to believe the the most famous of Valentine symbols is of course, the infamous Cupid, the Roman God of Love. Best Friends Forever Childs CostumeWhat makes Valentine's Day so special is that all ages get into the spirit of the holiday from children to adults.  Children have party's at school where they make special Valentine boxes and exchange Valentine's Day cards.  It's so much fun to watch my children pick out just the right cards for their friends at school.  You have everything from Sponge Bob to Justin Bieber Valentine's Day cards for kids to choose from.  HalloweenExpress.com even has a kids costume that two children can wear.  It's a BFF (Best Friends Forever) styrofoam heart that is separated down the middle.  It's the perfect Valentine's Day costume for my daughter Olivia and her best friend, Savanna.
