Because Make-Believe is So Much More Than Just a Costume

 

Great Pretenders

Great Pretenders believe that “dress-up” is so much more than just putting on a costume, as Oppenheim Toy Portfolio says:

“Pretend play is not just great fun. It’s the way kids develop imagination and creative thinking skills and try out being big and powerful. Pretending also brings the world down to the child’s size and understanding. It’s a way to develop communication skills and an outlet for expressing feelings and fears.”

Fun In The Sun Giveaway – Celebrating Spring!

After a long (long, long) winter that saw all of Canada with several snow storms and all sorts of whacky weather, its a relief that SPRING is officially here!

Go Frost Yourself Edible Images

Helping You to Create the Right Cake Every Time

Happy Birthday Hayden

My “baby” tends to have odd requests when it comes to his birthday cake. When he was turning 3, he wanted a cake that was “black and blue with cats all over.” I am not a baker, and I am definitely NOT a cake decorator so I was left scrambling trying to figure out HOW the heck I was going to be able to pull that off.  I’m very thankful that I discovered a Canadian business called Go Frost Yourself Edible Images.
