Spot It! A Giveaway

We are always up for trying new games here in the Trenches, so when PR at blueorange games contacted me about their game called Spot it!, I said sure, BRING IT ON.

Let me just tell you, this game was a HIT.  For all the boyz...and me!

Composed of 55 circular cards, there is always one, and only one, matching symbol between any 2 cards in this game.

So all you need is a sharp eye and a little bit of speed!  Speed that uh, my 7 year old has more of than me...

Try it for yourself! (online demo)

We played this game as soon as we got it for an hour last night.  An hour straight!  Dishes went unwashed, showers went untaken, but man, we had a blast.

It's even small enough to fit in my purse for those long restaurant waits.  And is also a great birthday gift idea!

Hey, wanna win it?

I have a Spot it! game to give away!

Simply leave a comment below with your favorite family game and you are entered.  Winner will be chosen Friday, March 16th.  (Make sure I have a valid e-mail address to contact you if you win.)

I was sent 2 copies of Spot it! to facilitate this review.  As always, any opinions expressed herein are mine, all mine.

GUM Star Wars Toothbrushes


Want to get your children to brush their teeth without a fuss?

It's all in the toothbrush, Moms!

My 6 and 7 year olds are huDge Star Wars fans.  So we were psyched to receive a package in the Trenches containing some GUMbrand goodies.

We have a strict brushing routine in our Trenches.  Toothbrushing is done immediately after breakfast (but before putting on school clothes lest they get spittle on them) and immediately before bedtime.  In both instances, a 2-minute timer is set.  Flossing and mouthwashing is also done.  My boyz don't even think about it anymore because it has become a routine.

Every once in a while though, I do a random breath check.  I like to keep them on their toes and not allow them to slack with their toothbrushing!

Because, you know, even bad guys brush their teeth:
