How does Santa do it? Not only is he running the show at the North Pole, he’s busily preparing for for the holidays locally at Flatiron Crossing mall’s Santa HQ. This innovative holiday wonderland combines Santa’s special magic with fun, eye-popping technology.
Santa HQ is an engaging way to experience the classic mall visit with Santa. Of course, he’s the star attraction. As you make your way to the big guy, you might wonder how you stack up. Did you take Halloween candy from your kids? Do you let people merge in front of you? There’s no hiding it any more. Find out who is naughty or nice as the Naughty-or-Nice O’Meter scans and your name pops up under a NICE or NAUGHTY list for all to see. After, spy on the hijinks of elves using super-cool handheld Elf-Ray vision screens. Take over Santa’s control panel, too. There are plenty of buttons to push and discoveries to make.
Finally, it’s picture time! Every kid should have yearly proof they had a face-to-face with Mr. Claus. Santa HQ has two photo areas. One is a wintery backdrop and the other is with Santa himself. There is plenty of room for the whole family. Even parents want to be seen with Santa, right?
From now until December 24, 2015, families can visit Santa HQ at Flatiron Crossing Mall. For more information or to book a reservation, visit Santa HQ’s page.
‘Tis the season of tootsies. What is it about candlelight and twinkly trees? People love to step out in our very dressed-up best. But we also like to hunker down for cozy times with our favorite people and a vat of hot cocoa. Luckily, you don’t have to choose one or the other when it comes to your daughter’s feet. Famous Footwear is featuring a deep selection of the most stylish AND most comfy scoots of the holiday season without breaking the budget. Here are two of my favorites.
First, let’s shine:
I adore this spunky design that transcends traditional Mary Janes. Buster Brown’s Layla in Black/Silver is a sweet twist on a classic. Silver hearts adorn the tippy-toes and encase dancing, jumping feet.
There are so many places your girl can look her best, including holiday dinners, concerts, religious services, family photo sessions, parties, and even school! These could be worn a lot. I paired them with traditional holiday tartan, red satin, green velvet, and a deep blue. Amazingly, they work with everything.
Thoughtful touches include a stretch elastic strap. You can avoid awkward buckling battles when little fingers can’t manage. Also, and this is a biggie for me: The tread! A lot of dressy girls’ shoes have no tread, which makes walking in icy and snowy conditions dangerous. The textured rubber soles will provide more grip than many shoes out there.
Buster Brown’s Layla shoes are currently on sale at Famous Footwear for $24.99. Normal retail is $34.99!
Now, let’s snooze (or, at least, hunker down):
One of the hottest shoe trends this fall and winter has been moccasins. Minnetonka is one of the best-known makers of these cozy classics for nearly 70 years and Famous Footwear has a wide selection.
Dream about sinking into Minnetonka’s Britta Trappers in a glorious, winter-blues-busting pink.
The quality is stellar. I think they would make a fabulous gift for girls of all ages. After the holidays, a long winter lurks. Imagine how much nicer winter could be with her feet (and yours!) snuggled deep in cloud-like cushion like this.
These Minnetonka Britta Trappers also come in Tan and are on sale for $24.99 right now—save $5. Don’t forget the teens, men, boys, and yourself! Minnetonka makes cozy shoes for everyone.
Looking to host the coolest Halloween Party on the block? Are your kids science nuts?
Steve Spangler Science has fabulous products to alter your Halloween ideas to include some gooey, bubbling, belching science ideas to add into your Halloween activities!
The most reasonable (only $4.99!!) and fun quick purchase is the ultimate guide to Halloween, the Halloween Science Experiment Guide!
With this awesome guide you can explore the ghastly science behind Boo Bubbles and Vanishing Ghost Eggs.

And that’s just some of the activities you’ll participate in while browsing the 22 full-color, photo rich pages of the Halloween Science Experiment Guide. It’s the perfect, scary way to engage the minds of learners (really… all ages will love it) and students while having a ton of Halloween-themed fun!
