My 6 year old had a blast coloring in all the stickers for the recordable art gift book. She had a lot of fun deciding where to put them and recording a message on the book. The recordable art is such a wonderful idea and a ton of fun for the kids to do. They make a great gift

My 4 year old daughter has a new best friend & his name is Nugget the Dog!

Everyday since we received Nugget the dog we have read the book and cant wait to get the other 2 books in the series. It so cute so see my daughter get excited every time we read the book and Nugget talks. I personally love it says 3 different sayings for each of the lines so its not the same thing over and over again. (Well it was until she figured it out and now I have to read the line 3 times lol). Not only did my 4yr old daughter love the dog but even my 8yr old son & 13 yr old daughter! A cute thing happen when my daughter told Nugget the dog she loved him, he replied with I love you too! It was not something in the book! We have been trying to come up with other saying to see what we can trigger the dog to say. This is a very cute product and I have already started recommending it to friends and family! Thank you Cafemom & Hallmark!!

These are cute ideas!

So far I've only made dramatic voices and had the children take parts of the story.

We got the Cinderalla book. My Brianna loves it. When its storytime she goes straight to that book. She loves being a princess.



My DD really wants the Cinderella book! She picks it up every time we go to the Hallmark store.

great pics

I just have to say thank you to Cafemom and Hallmark for letting us participate in this influence program.

My kids are ages 6 & 8 years old...both had a fun time creating these two projects for their grandmas.

The projects were very easy and not a lot of mess involved with the paint that they sent us.

Here are a few pictures I took of the kids doing their projects.... I let both kids take turns coloring in the book and painting on the canvas.
