A TON of Halloween Costumes, Party Tips, Games, Recipes and More

My daughter made a comment yesterday about the Halloween decorations and costumes she saw at our local grocery store. She said, “It’s not even September and there is Halloween stuff out”! It made me remember that us bloggers run on the same “super early” schedule the stores do. So, I sat down and started to think of what I could do for a Halloween post. I realized I have SO MUCH Halloween awesomeness on here already I decided to create a single post highlighting it all. Ya know, easy to find, easy access!

Education Through Movement: Active Hands On Learning for Kids

Education through movement is something I really love. Active hands on learning for kids is wonderful.

Education Movement



My Alice is 7 years old now and I’ve noticed over the years that she is a “wiggler”! She is always moving and I’ve also noticed that it doesn’t affect her learning process. In fact, I believe it helps it. Her brain thrives outside, hands while being active.

I have apps, and she has learning tablets. I have bought her workbooks, worksheets and all kinds of sit down and learn materials. She retains so much more information from being involved physically then reading and writing.

Now, I’m not knocking reading and writing. Alice loves to read, write and draw. I already need to purchase a storage unit for the short stories she’s created for us. I just wanted to find more active ways to help her learn. It gets us outside and away from the TV, smartphones and tablets. It involves the whole family and it’s fun!

Here are some wonderful examples and ideas of Education Through Movement that I have found online.

Moody Gardens NEW SpongeBob Subpants Adventure and Coupon

My family and I had a BLAST exploring Moody Gardens, staying at the AMAZING Moody Gardens Hotel and experiencing the new SpongeBob Subpants 4D Interactive Adventure!!

SpongeBob Supants Adventure

The SpongeBob Subpants 4D Interactive Adventure was AWESOME! We all wanted to experience it again the second it was over! You really are a part of the experience through real-time interaction with Patrick as he takes you to destinations YOU choose while traveling through Bikini Bottom. Patrick talks to you, jokes with you and is the BEST guide through Bikini Bottom. You even try to stop Plankton from taking over the SUB in his evil plan to steal the Krabby Patty secret formula. The nautical adventure truly comes to life because you can smell the sunscreen, pop bubbles above your head, hit around a beach ball, get sprayed with water and there is even a wiggly something that hits your legs when the 3D images on the screen transform from digital to real time through exciting 4D sensory elements and live narration.

Moody Gardens Fun
