The fall is a great time to plan a family getaway and enjoy lots of fun activities under one roof. With more than 17 locations, Great Wolf Lodge is a memorable destination for kids of all ages. Last year our family enjoyed splashing at the spacious water park, navigating the high ropes course, and playing mini golf. Great Wolf Lodge is hosting its Howl-O-Ween celebration from Oct. 1 – 31, 2019 as well as its Snowland Event from Nov. 30 – Jan 5, 2020. At Grand Mound, Washington this fall, guests are encouraged to put on costumes and join in a wealth of daily activities including monster bash dance parties and fall-fun crafting projects. Kids can also trick-or-treat along a trail filled with interactive games and adventures throughout the resort.

Going to Disney on Ice is a great opportunity to spend a special family day together. Kids can wear a dress up outfit and see their favorite characters retelling beloved stories on the ice.

Kids, teenagers and adults will enjoy seeing Mickey & Minnie, Moana, Aladdin & Jasmine, characters from Toy Story and more reenacting the highlights from many Disney stories.

Any time of the year is a fun opportunity to get crafty. We love personalizing our home and life with creative ideas that are also budget friendly! My kids get excited about back to school because they get to pick out a few new school supplies. It’s always fun to personalize books and notebooks with colorful tape, stickers and school-inspired doodles. These ideas for making re-purposed pencil cans and custom book covers will brighten up any desk.
My kids love playing with playdough. This is the best homemade playdough recipe because it makes bright colors and it’s not too salty. You can make it with ingredients you already have on hand!

We tried the Tavour Craft Beer Club and discovered some great benefits of using this beverage service app.
