Peanuts by Schulz: School Days DVD Giveaway

It’s time for back-to school and you can kick off the new school year with Snoopy and Charlie Brown on Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s (WBHE) release of Peanuts by Schulz: School Days, available on DVD August 29, 2017! I have always been a BIG fan of Peanuts. Growing up in Minnesota, the birthplace of Charles Schulz may have upped my interest. As a kid it was always such a big deal for those special pre-holiday nights during the year when Peanuts specials like “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” would air on TV.

Now we have the luxury of being able to watch the Peanuts gang any time we want via the newly launched Peanuts cable television series on Boomerang, Cartoon Network’s sister station, or on DVD. And you you can enroll in Snoopy’s curriculum of laughter and fun with an all-new collection that features school-themed cartoons from the TV series. This release includes 19 highly-entertaining shorts, which are based on the legendary print comic strip created by Charles Schulz.

Grab your books and join study buddies Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the entire Peanuts gang for School Days! Bringing Charles Schulz’s classic strips to life, this all-new animated collection features over three hours of laughs and lessons. Whether it’s being the class clown or a teacher’s pet, these adventurers will make the grade. So, catch the bus and have that homework ready because class is in session with Peanuts!

“This new collection of Peanuts short cartoons revolves around the classic school theme and will appeal to viewers of all ages,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President Family & Animation Marketing. She added, “This beautiful new series is a celebration of Charles Schulz’s beloved original comic strip. It’s comprised of animated vignettes derived directly from his newspaper strips. We are delighted to offer this entertaining new release to consumers.”

Reader Giveaway: Three lucky Chic ‘n Savvy readers will each win Peanuts by Schulz: School Days on DVD. To enter, just complete the entry form below by 11:59pm ET on 9/11/17. Good luck!

Fun with Teletubbies Bubbles – Make Bubble Art!

This is part of a sponsored campaign for Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. I received compensation for my participation, but my reviews and opinions are my own. Paint With Bubbles

In honor of the new release of the Teletubbies Bubbles DVD on June 20th, I thought it would be fun to get outside and create art using bubbles with my son, Clay! In the new DVD Teletubbies Bubbles, the Teletubbies chase and pop bubbles, and I wanted to create a fun craft with my little guy around bubbles! He loves watching Teletubbies when they come on television, so it is nice to have three new DVDs so he can watch, while learning and having fun! And this year, the Teletubbies are celebrating “20 Years of Big Hugs” all throughout 2017.

Teletubbies Bubbles

I was sent the Bubbles, Twinkle Twinkle and Big Hugs DVDs along with a plush Teletubbie. When I opened the package, Clay’s face just lit up! He is really into stuffed and plush toys, so now he loves to take it to sleep with him during his nap. Of course right away we had to put on one of the DVDs so Clay could watch it. The brand new Teletubbies Bubbles DVD will be released on June 20th. Clay is already fascinated with Bubbles, so he loved seeing them in this show all about them! The most fun part of the DVD is a bubble party filled with all sorts of bubbles, even one so big children could stand inside the bubble! It is full of giggle-inducing and smile-creating moments.

But I really love Teletubbies because it is also learning show for him. It is great for physical development, communication, social and emotional development and more. Teletubbies teach your child tasks and information in each episode. They use words like “again again” to let your child understand how to use the word, as they repeat what they were doing!

If you have not watched the Teletubbies, their world is so colorful, and it is really engaging for little kids. They can’t help but watch, because it draws them in. As your child grows they can engage in the questions the Teletubbies ask, and they can join in dancing and other activities. It is a show that I love Clay to watch, as I know he is growing and learning! You can find out more about the developmental benefits of Teletubbies HERE.

If you want to create bubble art with one of your little children, you should give it a try. It is easy and your child will love it! Clay is still pretty young, so he is learning, and he did a wonderful job creating a pretty piece of art work we can hang on the fridge!

First off you want to either make your own bubble solution or buy a bottle of bubbles. I had bubbles on hand, so I went ahead and just used store bought. But, if you prefer to make your own, it is easy to do, and works just the same!

Next add in some food coloring into separate bowls or containers. I did small portions, and did 1 drop of each color. I let Clay pick out 3 colors. In each container, add a little bit of the bubble solution, and mix with the food coloring. You can add more drops of coloring to reach the desired color you want.

After you have your bubble solution colored, grab some white paper, canvas or whatever you want your child to paint on! Then head outside because it can get a little messy! We went ahead and used white paper, so he could do as many pictures as he wanted.

Bubble Art

Then let them take a bubble wand, and dip into the solution, and then blow bubbles onto the paper. Clay struggled at first learning how to blow bubbles, but with some practice he learned how! It will add a fun color to the paper, creating a custom piece of art work!

Once he got the bubbles on the paper he popped them himself, or they popped right away! He loved being able to see the colors go onto the paper! This does work really well, and you can use any color of food coloring you want, and as many colors!

Then just let it air dry, and then you can hang it up in your child’s room, hang on the fridge, or make cards for family members! Each bubble art you do will have a new and unique design! It is a blast doing, and I know we will be doing more of these this summer!

You can find out more about the Teletubbies on their website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Have fun painting with bubbles with this outdoor craft art project!

Get Messy With Your Baby in the #MessiestBabyContest + $50 AMEX Giveaway

This post and giveaway were made possible by iConnect and Dreft. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.Clay's First Birthday

Our little guy just turned one on the 20th of October! Time sure does fly, I always heard people say that, but I think until you have your own little sweetie pie, you don’t truly see how fast it really is going by! I remember bringing him home and being scared of what to do, and now he runs all over the house playing! I am very thankful I get to stay at home with him, so I get to take part in each new milestone he reaches! 

Clay Eating

We can’t always sweat the small stuff, a little mess here and there is always a little fun, right?! Rather than sweating the small stuff, parents should rejoice in the fact that a messy baby is a sign of a happy,well-adjusted one and not worry that it may reflect poorly on them as parents. Parents can brush off the spaghetti stains on the party dress and the grass stains on pants and enjoy every moment while Dreft tackles the messDreft has partnered with Dr. Hes, and she shares some great “messy baby” tips! Here are a few of her tips she shares, to make memories with your babies!

Count the fun and use your fingers: Use your little one’s food as a fantastic way to learn how to begin counting. When snacking, start counting with your little one and encourage them to use their fingers. Also, this is a great time to use food to help them learn how to properly grasp things. It will take time and practice so let them get a little dirty with their food and practice, practice, practice!

Load up on bibs: Bibs are a great way to capture those messy food moments. Once your little one is done with meal time, throw the bib in the washer with Dreft Active Baby to easily tackle the mess so you can do it all over again. The mess went way beyond the bib? No problem—throw that outfit in the washer too!

Splish, Splash in the Bath: Bring fun toys and activities into the bath and let your child splash around and have fun. Make sure to use warm water (vs. hot) and use a mild cleanser to keep skin soft and itch-free. Gently pat skin dry and end with an after-bath moisturizer to seal in moisture and protect baby’s soft skin.
