I have a serious backlog of finds, so get ready:
— Virtual Polaroid: Turn your digital photos into classic-looking vintage Polaroids with Rollip.com. This free online software makes it easy to customize and share your creations. Cool!
— Win a Disney Vacation: In honor of National Family History Month, enter your favorite family recipe (that contains a Smucker’s product) for a chance to win a fabulous trip to Disney for you and 7 members of your fam. Hurry — contest ends Monday, Oct. 12!
— Free Child Care for a Year: Today is the last day to enter Care.com’s Year of Care Giveaway. The grand prize is $12,445, which is the cost of a year of child care for the average American family (OUCH!)
— Help Your Kid Rock the Schoolhouse: Mom’s Homeroom is an MSN site sponsored by one of my favorite cereals, Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats (mmmmm, I think I’ll get a bowl right now). It’s full of quick-reads, articles and online tools for moms on-the-go to easily help their children perform their best in school.
— Kids Eat Free: Got an iPhone? I wish I did. Anywho … there’s a cool app called Kids Eat For that lets you search by zip code for restaurants in your area with free or discounted meals for kids.
— Fix Dinner and Fight Breast Cancer: Local foodie, working mom and author Amy Tobin is donating 100% of the royalties for Amy’s Table: Food for Family and Friends to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. She wants to sell 1,000 copies this month (’tis the season for breast cancer awareness). So if you’ve been looking for a new cookbook (or know someone who is), pick up a copy of Amy’s Table and help fight breast cancer. Good cause, all around.
— Attention, Local Bean Lovers: If you’re in Cincinnati and looking for something fun to do with the fam, get out the Beano and head to the annual Bean Bash at Turfway Park, this Saturday starting at noon. The event benefits some great local charities and kids 12 and under are free! Get all the details at Family Friendly Cincinnati.
