Family Fun Favorites - Think-ets and Barefoot books
Think-ets tiny trinkets for imaginative play – What is Think-ets? Remember when we were kids, and we played endless games of jacks? Think-ets is the 21st century version, a fun and unique assortment of 15 miniature trinkets from around the world contained in a small carrying pouch, perfect for playing games, collecting and trading with others.
Think-ets is portable, fun, even brainy. No two pouches are exactly alike; there are 10 different games you can play with think-ets. It's the perfect game for restaurants, traveling, and small group conversation starters. Children and adults enjoy this amazing game.
My first time playing was with a group of teen girls, and we had a blast playing What’s Your Story? Each of us chose a trinket and began a story popcorn style. It was fun to hear as each teen added her part of the story using her trinket.

My Favorite New Family Reading Books (WIN one!)
"Kick off your shoes & go Barefoot" is the slogan at Barefoot Books http://www.letsreadbarefoot.com/. They have a great selection of books and CD’s for children that inspire them to read. Barefoot Books stories and artwork combined with sharing the world’s diversity and different cultures while focusing on themes that encourage our children is outstanding.
The most recent book I have shared with my two boys (ages 6 and 9) is Mama Panya’s Pancakes by Mary and Rick Chamberlin. This great story teaches readers about life in Kenya and has a wonderful lesson on sharing.
