Moana 100 Images to Inspire Creativity

60 cards = gazillions of stories. Draw a blue and a yellow card and CREATE!
Doodle Games Activity Book by Joe Rhatigan, illustrations by Anthony Owsley
We’ve loved this book, particularly because it facilitates a fun parent-child time. JJ and dad so far love The Mutant Game (players give each other weird mutant animal combos to draw), Doodle Dare Circles (draw as many things as you can using only circles), and Squiggle Masterpieces (squiggles that become something wonderful).
Get moving with this hilarious, fast-paced game. Call out the the actions shown on the card (such as high-five and pound it) and if you match with another player, you both do the action. SO FUN!!
The Curious Cat Spy Club by Linda Joy Singleton MYSTERY
What a fantastic new book series — my daughter and I devoured this first book. (She’s currently enjoying the 2nd.) Three kids form seemingly different social circles band together to rescue kittens they found in a dumpster — and solve the mystery of who would try to kill the kittens.

My daughter makes erasers from this kit like crazy — little monsters, animals, you name it. It’s not just creative, it’s useful!
This is my personal favorite family strategy game — mostly because I love trying to beat my kids. They love this game, too — and let me win sometimes. Isn’t that nice?
Pass the Pigs
This is my husband’s favorite game to play with the kids. This Pass the Pigs classic party game consists of 2 pigs you use as dice, pad, 2 pencils and carrying case. Roll them as many times as you dare on your turn to score points. Just don’t role a “pig out” or an “oinker”. First person to 100 points wins.

Your 9 year old girl will love this 3 in 1 LEGO building toy set. You can make a monkey, teddy bear or a squirrel! I like that it gets taken apart and built again and again.
