Explore and Create this holiday season with Maker Lab from DK

My oldest is always trying to mix this and build that. I love that he is so creative and wants to challenge his mind, but he often struggles when things don’t work. I love that he likes to explore on his own and encourage that in all ways possible. But this year I thought I would help him out with some fun step by step activities and thanks to DK I can. Maker Lab is the book of all books in my eyes. It supports STEM education initiatives and the maker movement! Which means learning is  ...

Bringing Some Smokey Flavours to my backyard! #Shariffy

Nothing says Summer to me more then a nice BBQ. My Dad loves to grill up yummy recipes and even makes tasty treats with his smoker. There is something about that smokey flavor along with a nice cold drink, while sitting chatting with friends and family to remind me that Summer has arrived. I love giving the gift of Cookbooks. My Dad’s birthday is in August so we often get him something grilling related. DK has an AMAZING Summer Boutique and was thankful to be sent two  ...

DK Canada’s Force is strong today #StarWarsDay

All day today I have been seeing posts about the unofficial holiday “May the Fourth be with you”.

My boys love to run up and down the hallway with their light sabers battling each other. This year I was able to surprise them with a special little surprise from our favourite book publisher DK Canada. Ultimate Sticker Collection: Star Wars: The Force Awakens  ...

The Ultimate Factivity Collection from DK #GIVEAWAY

March Break is something both my son and I look forward to. Working for the school board means I get the same time off my big guy does and I am grateful for it. We do struggle trying to find a balance of fun day trips and good old relaxation time. I find when we are home my oldest either wants on the iPad or he is telling me how he has nothing to do. So this year I planned ahead with DK’s Ultimate Factivity Collection. We really love the Factivity books in our house as they are the  ...

DK’s My First Book Collection

I don’t think you can ever have enough books, but if you ask my hubby he might disagree. But that just means I smuggle a couple in here and there and add them to our book shelf. But if you have a preschooler like mine he notices the new books and loves to share with Daddy. What can I say my plan is far from fool proof. Our newest additions to the book shelf are: My First Dinosaur My First Pet My First Tractor My First Body DK has a line of board books called My Firsts. Known for their  ...
