Endless Game Holiday Gift Guide 2018


We were excited that we were able to add a few more games to our family game night collection. Endless Games offers a variety of different games like party games, family games, card games, dice games, and kids games. All games are made in the USA. We were able to receive three games for review and they where Everybody Knows, Floor is Lava and Sleepover Party Game. 

Floor is Lava is a very fun game that I found very creative. I know as a child we played similar games to this one. I remember playing on the playground at elementary school where we could not set off on the wood chips. If you did you were out of the game and you lost. In this game you have to use your imagination and pretend that the floor is lava and you can not set foot on it. The object of the game is the floor is lava and while spinning for their color and jumping along foam game pieces in order to reach to safety. What I also like about this game while play it is incorporating physical activity.  What the game contains is 25 colored foam safety stones, 27 challenge cards,  and 1 game spinner card with arrow and base. This game is recommend for 2-6 players  and recommend for ages for 5 and up. As a mom I like this game for my children it brings laughs, giggles and lots of fun. It creates physical activity and a lot of creativity while playing. This game will bring the family together through play. 

The next game we received for review was Everybody Knows. This is a newer game from Endless game. This one my kids weren't able to play due to them be a little to young for this game. This is a trivia game which would be great for holiday parties. Example of questions that are asked in this game are what is the capital of California?  Who played Forrest Gump? What is 5x 16? This game is about answering questions everybody knowns the answers to. Here is the kicker is that you have to answer these question in 60 seconds or less. Yes the answer seem to be easy, but what happens when you are under pressure and trying to go for 10 for 10 in 60 seconds. What comes in this game is 500 playing cards, 1 sand timer, 1 dry erase maker and 1 scorecard. This game is for 2 or more players and recommended for ages 12 and up. 

The last game that we received in our box was Sleepover Party Game. This is the perfect game if your playing a sleepover party over the holidays. This would be the perfect game to bring out during sleepovers. This game has challenges for you to partake in. There are over 200 challenges that you have to act t, work it or party. All you have to do is spin the spinner and attempt to complete the challenges. This game will have you having fun and being silly. Prepare to laugh, sing and perform. This game will come with 85 act it cards, 75 work it cards and 40 party cards and one spinner. This game is ideal for 3 or more players and ages 8 and up. This game will have your kids having so much fun during their sleep over parties. It is a must have!

Overall these game are so much fun for the family and for party games. I really liked the game where you have to watch out for lava. During holiday parties break out the trivia and have some fun. I would highly recommend these fun games for the holidays. The best part is that Endless Game have many more games that you can play at home. Find these game and other game with the link below.

Kiss Naturals Holiday Gift Guide 2018


Recently my daughter has been really into makeup recently and recently been introduced to bath bombs. She always asking me how to make them and has taken an interest on how they are made. I found a company called Kiss Naturals that offer DIY own kits which would make amazing holiday gifts for this upcoming Christmas. 

They have four kits available on their website. They offer Bath Fizzie, Lip Balm, Glycerin Soap and Lava Lip Balm. What I like about the kits on the box they show you all the materials that you will get in the kit and the box will also list each material that is included. To me that is a plus because my children can see what they are getting and they where also excited to know what they are getting. 

The first kit that they have available is the Bath Fizzie. My daughter was very excited when we took this kit out of the box. This kits ingredients is all natural. My daughter was very excited when she learned that this was a bath bomb kit and she could make her own bath fizzies that she could use herself. What I also like over the holidays is that these kits will teach her a little bit of science. Here is what is included in your Bath Fizzie kit: 1 packet of secret formula powder (pink or aqua), 1 bottle of witch hazel, 1 red silicone mold, tropical sunset natural fragrance, 1 measuring cup, and 1 mini spatula. This kit was easy for my daughter to do and she absolutely loved it. She had fun making her own fizzie bombs and had a lot of fun using them. 

The second kit that we received was their DIY Lip Balm kit. This next one was a lot of fun she loved bring her own lip balm to school and showing her friends and teacher what she made. This kit will teach you how to make your own lip balm from scratch and it fun and easy for your kiddos. The kit provides everything that you will need to make your own lip balm. The kit provides shea butter, beeswax and safflower oil for the lip balm. The fragrances that are included boysenberry and bubblegum. They supplies that they provide are  measuring cup, spatula, 3 empty lip balm tubes, 3 lip balm jars and 6 lips balm labels. This kit was one of her favorites that she was able to make her own lip balm and she uses it a lot. She also shows everyone her lip balms and brags that she made them herself. 

The next kit that we tried was their Glycerin Soap kit. This kit was a lot of fun and we were able to make up to 16 hand soaps for our house. We were able to create vegetable based hand and body soaps for our home. My daughter did have the idea of giving them gifts to family and friends for the holiday season. This kit is very simple all you have to do is melt a square of the clear glycerin soap based in the clear pot included in the kit. Then you add the color and fragrance. Then you pour the mixture in the soap molds and let them cool. Then bam you have your soaps. What is included in this kit are: 2 blocks of glycerin soap base, 2 bottle of scented oils (jasmine and tropical sunset, two colored micas, soap mold, clear mixing/melting pot, stirring spoons, and 1 dropper. This was also a very fun kit to do. 

The last kit that we received was their Lava Lip Gloss craft kits. They compare this kit to lava lamps. If you like lava lamps them you will love this kit. This kit is award winning, groovy 60's inspired lip gloss. The reason why they compare this to lava lips gloss is that you mix together naturals oils, flavors and colors in a tube and you will be mesmerized as the oil mixture and colored glycerin move freely around each other just like a lava lamp. In this kit it includes castor oil, safflower oil, 2 bottle of natural flavors, 3 bottles of natural colors (purple, pink and yellow) 1 measuring cup, 6 empty roll-on lip gloss tubes, and 6 lips gloss labels. This was a fun one to watch and my daughter thought it was pretty cool to was the ingredients turn into lip gloss. 

Overall these kits where very simple to make. The instructions were to the point and easy to follow. The kids had a lot of fun making lip glosses, soaps and fizz bombs. I would highly recommend ordering these kits for you kiddos for Christmas time. They will have a lot of fun making their own soaps and lip balms. You can find their products at the link below.

Tatic Game Night Holiday Gift Guide Review

Around the holidays I always love having family game nights. When I recently learned about the company Tatic I learned a lot of interesting facts. I did not realize that they have been around over 50 years. They were also the first Finnish game company which I also thought that was pretty interesting. 

We were very excited when we were able to choose a couple games for our family game nights for the holidays that are coming up. Our family voted on two games and they where Alias and We Detectives.

When we were looking at the Alias game which is a favorite and highly recommended. They have nine different Alias games. We decided on the original Alias game to try. Although the other Alias game look just as much fun. 

Alias is a very popular game worldwide and they have sold over 5 million games. What I like about Alias that it is a word association game and the goal is to explain as many words as possible to your teammates without saying the actual word that is on the cards. Which is a lot of fun. When you are guessing what is on the game card and you get it correct you can move forward on the game board. The more words that you guess right the further you get to move on the board game. What also I like about this game there are words that are easy to very difficult. There are 3200 word options for this game and are on 400 cards. This was a fun and challenging game with the kiddos and they liked trying to guess the words. Some words were easier than other words. I would definitely recommend this game for family game night. 

The second game that we got to try was We Detectives which is another amazing game that we got to play with the kids. My kids always love playing games that make them think. This game brings the kids together and let them use their critical thinking skills. During this game we worked together to solve crimes. During this game you move around the city, collect evidence and solve the cases. Sounds easy right? Well the part that I didn't tell you is that you will be also racing against time. If your fun out of time the bad guy will walk away scotch free. Working together to solve the crimes make the game experience fun for the whole family. 

Overall the games that we received from Tatic were very family friendly and brought the family together. They offer a lot of family friendly games on their website and their is something for everyone on their site. They have games for all age ranges which is also nice. What I really like about this company is their games bring families together. You can find more of their games at their website below.
