How to exercise your child’s creativity and imagination

October 27, 2011

In order for children to be happy and healthy, they also need to regularly exercise their creativity and imagination. They must be given the opportunity to use their imagination — be it through simple means or things.

The key, though, is to keep things fun and enjoyable not only for your child but for you as a parent as well.

We recently heard about a game called “the long way home.” In this game you challenge your child to come up with different ways to get home. You can do this exercise when you’re fetching your child from school or if you’re about to go home from a familiar place like the park or neighborhood grocery store. Ask your child for various routes to take or means of transport to get home.

Not only will this be a fun thing to do for you both, it can also really help your child think.

We also love our Makedo Cup Critters Critters. They are small and complete with parts to help your child make two animals per kit. There are three options available – chimp / rooster, cow / rabbit and penguin / hippo. Each kit comes with very easy to follow instructions. Your child will really have a great time “creating” different animals from these Makedo Cup Critters. When they are done with the animals, they can reuse the parts to make anything their imagination so desires.

Fun and cute BPA-free products for your kids

September 30, 2011
Planning to go on a shopping trip for your kids and for the home? We here at Hocusadabra have new and exciting BPA-free products that you might want to purchase for your kids. But first, let’s track back a little bit and emphasize exactly why it’s important that we buy BPA-free products.

Bisphenol A or BPA is an organic compound with two phenol functional groups. It is used to make polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins. In 2010, the United States Food and Drug Administration or FDA released reports about how dangerous products with BPA were. If you guys remember, there were a lot of products that were taken off the market because of that report. In September 2010, Canada declared BPA as a toxic substance. These days, Canada as well as the European Union ban the use of BPA in baby bottles.

And because we here at Hocusadabra do not just take things like that lightly, we passionately advocate the purchase and use of BPA-free products. After all, we’re talking about the health and safety of our children and the protection of our homes as a whole, right?

This is the very reason why we currently have fun and really cute BPA-free products in our online store now. Our new arrivals include:

1. The Yoga Dog BPA-free plate – designed in California and made out of 100 percent recycled food grade plastic. You and your kids will love the original design and quirky message made by Freddy Deane!

2. Elephant BPA-free plate and bowl set – available in turquoise and fuschia, this pretty eye candy of a plate and bowl set even has a little extra space for a message which means it can also be a great gift idea!
