Emmy Award Picks

The Emmy Awards will air on Sunday night. Will you be watching?

While many adult-favorite—and office-favorite—shows are nominated (there’s always lots of talk about Breaking Bad, Project Runway, Downton Abbey, The Good Wife, and more at our lunch table), there are a few family favorites in the mix.

My boys and I will be rooting for several contenders in the Outstanding Reality Program: MythBusters (all three of my boys want to be MythBusters when they grow up), Antiques Roadshow (yep, they really do like it!), and Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives (what’s not to like about good food?) as well as The Amazing Race (nominated for 5 awards).

What about your family?

Fun 3D Puzzle for Preschoolers

Guest blogger Dawn Chipman writes:

We like this 40-piece Dinoland puzzle that’s also a toy worthy of hours of prehistoric stomping and roaring. Fairyland and cityscape versions available, too.

Great Beginning Reader Series

Good books for beginning readers can be hard to find. One of my favorites is the Henry and Mudge series by Cynthia Rylant, which has everything you want in books for this group: an engaging story that’s just enough of a challenge. Even better? They now come in value packs. You’ll need them as your kids burn through the titles.

DIY Paper Crowns

Guest blogger Dawn Chipman writes:

As little princesses know, different occasions and outfits require different head adornments. Happily, Color-In Crowns come eight to a pack and in two different designs. Pink ribbons to tie each crown in place included.
