Can you believe it is almost summer? I am so happy about the warmer weather, but it has really lit that fire under me to get our summer plans in place. If you are looking for summer camps for your kids and teens and want one that will allow them to discover their passion for STEM (Science, technology, engineering and math) through fun and exciting hands-on courses and collaboration, Digital Media Academy technology camp may be what you are looking for. Now for the bad news, you will need to hurry because their summer camps are filling up fast! I do have some good news, you can save $75 on each summer camp registration when you use the promo code TECHFUN17.

Digital Media’s mission is to foster a learning community of diversity and excellence through memorable and innovative educational experiences led by the highest-quality instructors; building skills and confidence to empower lifelong learners to follow their dreams and make a lasting impact. They understand that, girls may shy away from subjects like science, technology, engineering, and math because they are often seen as male-dominated fields.

To change that, Digital Media Academy is committed to increasing girls’ confidence in coding and STEM subjects through immersive courses taught by role models and mentors dedicated to empowering all learners, creators, and makers. DMA’s Made By Girls initiative aims to build tech confidence in young women, and was created exclusively to support early positive experiences with technology.

Your kids can learn the skills of tomorrow this summer at a location near you! When they attend one of Digital Media Academy’s hands-on summer camps for kids and teens ages 6-17, there is no limit to what they can create this summer!

Amazon Original Series, Tumble Leaf-All New Episodes Available May 6th!

Many shows made for kids are downright annoying for parents to watch with them. Most of you can probably list at least a handful of shows that are almost as bad as listening to fingernails scraping across a chalkboard. It is refreshing when a children’s series actually fosters lifelong creative learning for kids. It is doubly impressive when it is also enjoyable for parents to view alongside their child. Unfortunately, there are not too many preschool children series that can achieve one of those things let alone both. However, the Amazon Original Series, Tumble Leaf  is one that rises to and meets that challenge. This series is back for Season 2 and available for Prime members. All new episodes of this multi-Emmy award-winning series premiers on Amazon Prime Video on Friday, May 6th.

tumble leaf

This preschool series features Fig, a curious and endearing blue fox and his best friend Stick, a friendly caterpillar who is always on the move. Together Fig and Stick set out on  exciting adventures  filled with nature and science. The episodes start with a colorful crab who pulls in a fish trap that is filled with “treasure” from the sea. In one of the episodes I recently previewed he pulls in a camera and after snapping a quick photo of himself he tosses it into the magical Finding Place.  A curious Fig hurries off to the Finding Place to discover what new treasure has been added. The new discovery is utilized to bring about science through play lessons that are filled with a healthy dose of imagination.

The delightful characters created by Drew Hodges features voices from  Christopher Downs as Fig, Brooke Wolloff as Maple, Zac McDowell as Hedge, Addie Zintel as Pine, and Alex Trugman as Ginkgo.

Tumble Leaf 2

The episodes are packed with fun and learning and my sons loved watching along with me. The characters and voices are not annoying as can be the case with some other kid’s series that will remain nameless. It is a series that gets kids all excited to see what new discovery will end up in The Finding Place at the beginning of each episode. As the episode unwinds that discovery will be weaved into the story line seamlessly and when it ends Fig will tell the kids to get out and play! That is such a great message and one that is necessary for all kids today.

This series won 5 Daytime Emmys including the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Preschool Children’s Animated Program along with being the winner of the 2016 Parents Choice Award! Check out the Season 2 Trailer below!

 

Prime members can soon stream the second season of Tumble Leaf at no additional cost to their Prime membership with the Amazon Video app for TVs, connected devices and mobile devices, or online HERE . Prime members can also download the series for offline viewing on iOS, Android and Fire devices at no additional cost. In addition to SD and HD, the series is also available in 4K Ultra HD on compatible smart TVs from Samsung, LG and Sony. Customers who are not already Prime members can sign up for a free 30-day trial HERE! There are also brand new clips you can download or view HERE!

I hope you will check it out and let me know what you think in the comments. If you watched the 1st Season, let me know that too along with how you liked it.

This is a sponsored post, I was compensated by the company I am working with on this but as always my views and words are 100% my own.

Are You Looking For Outdoor Fun Ideas For Your Family?

We are moving into spring, the weather is warming up and soon the kids will be out of school for summer. Are you looking for fun outdoor things to do? How about camping? Even if it is in your own backyard, a family camping trip can be fun. You can start the night off with a fire in the fire pit, make s’mores, catch fireflies, have a sing a long and just talk and reconnect under the stars.tent pic 1

Kids have a blast camping out and you will make memories to last a lifetime. If you are looking for a nice 3 season tent for 2-3 people, you might want to take a look at the Semoo lightweight, waterproof, 3 Season Tent. This tent has a fun, vibrant orange color scheme. It is easy to set up. We put a tarp under ours. It comes packed in a duffel bag so that it is easy to transport.

The tent has a large front door with a screen window and the back of the tent features a screen window too! There are interior pockets on the left and right side of the interior of the tent. These pockets are great to hold your wallet, smartphone or smaller items.

Check out our video below to see all the great details. If you want to take a closer look there is a link at the end of the post to the Amazon listing.

I hope you and your family have some great adventures this summer.
