It's never too early to start thinking about summer camps. Especially when registration for some summer camps are already open or closing soon or when they're free.

Free camps? Yes, there is such a thing as free camps. We've done quite some research to find camps in and around Austin (up to a 2.5 hr radius) that are not a financial burden to families, especially families that already have enough to worry about.

TerraCycle Recycling Programs

Do you pack fruit pouches in your child’s lunch box? Are pretzels, chips, or granola bars a snack-staple in your house? Are infant formula and baby food on your shopping list? What do you do with broken toys that cannot be fixed or donated?

While they’re plastic and it is often assumed that all plastic can go in your regular recycle bin, none of the above actually can. However, there is a way to recycle these and other items. We’ve put together a list of recycle programs for items typically consumed or used by kids.

With all the extra family time we got last year, we’ve played so many fun games and also tried a few new ones. One of them was Ravensburger’s Magna-Tiles® Treasure Hunt.

This game is recommended for children ages 3 and up. It is for 2-4 players, easy to understand, and – big bonus – even younger kids can play the game all by themselves!

If your kids are Magna-Tiles fans and already have a bunch of Magna-Tiles, this game is even better: while the game comes with genuine Magna-Tiles, it can be mixed and matched with other Magna-Tiles sets, which allows you to extend the game or create a whole new game!

Read on for details and enter for a chance to win your own copy of the game.
