Winnie the Pooh Printable Mother's Day Card

Here's something fun! It's a printable Mother's Day card from Disney, in celebration of the new Winnie the Pooh movie set to be released July 15!

Walt Disney Animation Studios returns to the Hundred Acre Wood with “Winnie the Pooh.” Featuring the timeless charm, wit and whimsy of the original featurettes, this all-new movie reunites audiences with the philosophical “bear of very little brain” and friends Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Owl, Kanga, Roo—and last, but certainly not least, Eeyore, who has lost his tail. “Ever have one of those days where you just can’t win, Eeyore?” asks Pooh. Owl sends the whole gang on a wild quest to save Christopher Robin from an imaginary culprit. It turns out to be a very busy day for a bear who simply set out to find some honey. Inspired by three stories from A.A. Milne’s books in Disney’s classic, hand-drawn art style, “Winnie the Pooh” hits theatres on July 15th!

My Shopping Trip: 94% Savings on Kid's Clothing at JC Penney


I'm a firm believer in buying kid's clothes secondhand.  I mean, they only wear them for a short amount of time - who wants to pay $30 for an outfit that's only going to fit for a few months?  But sometimes, with the right sales and coupons, you can save even MORE than you would buying things secondhand.  Here's an example from a trip I made to JC Penney this week.  I had two mailer coupons for $10 off a $10 purchase - love those!  Since it was limited to one per transaction, I had to split my purchase into two transactions.  Here are the details:

Transaction 1
Items Purchased:
4T Carter's 3-piece PJ's (pants, long sleeve shirt, short sleeve shirt) - $26.00 clearance price $10.40
Coupons Used:
$10 off $10 Purchase Mailer

Total with tax: $.43

Transaction 2
Items Purchased:
6-9 Month Okie Dokie PJ's - set of 2 - $21.99 sale price $12.996-9 Month Carter's PJ's - $14.00 sale price $7.99Coupons Used:
$10 off $10 Purchase Mailer

Total with tax: $11.88


Total - both transactions - $12.31


Pretty good savings, right?  But that's not all!  I actually used the remainder of a gift card that was a baby shower gift for most of the purchase ($8.65), bringing my actual out-of-pocket cost down to $3.66!

That comes out to $.92 per item, a savings of 94%!  Even without the gift card, it's still an 80% savings - can't beat that.

What great deals did you find this week?

Giveaway: Josh Groban Straight to You Concert Tickets - Kansas City, May 25, 2011



Oh.  My.  Josh!

What?  You don't understand that statement?  Clearly you've never proclaimed yourself to be a "Grobanite."  Or at least, you've never attended a Josh Groban concert.  In just a few weeks, Josh is returning to Kansas City for the first time since 2004!  I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!  The Straight to You Tour will be here on May 25 for one night only.

This concert will feature songs from Josh's new album Illuminations.  I have attended three of Josh's concerts and he is an excellent performer.  There are not many vocalists in this world that actually sound better live and in person than they do on their recordings, but hearing Josh Groban sing in "real life" is definitely something you don't want to miss.  I have also seen Josh play both drums and piano at past concerts, so I can't wait to see what surprises he has in store for us this time!
You can get a sneak peek of the tour here.  And now for something really exciting...

You Can Count on Monsters Book Review + Giveaway



You Can Count on Monsters, a new book by Richard Evan Schwartz, is a fun new way to for kids to learn about prime numbers!  I will admit - I was expecting a short picture book when I first heard about this title, but I was surprised to find that it is a longer, information-filled volume! 

When you pick up this book, you are presented with the definition of prime numbers and a collection of "prime monsters."  Once you have become aquainted with these colorful creatures, head on a journey with them as you learn about how prime numbers work together.  There is a monster for every number, one through one hundred, and each one has its own page in the book.  It's a brand new way to learn about prime numbers!  I feel like I learned a lot myself!  Prime numbers can be hard for kids to remember, but when they're learning with the monsters, it will seem like a treasure hunt to find out how every number is created. 


If you're looking for a fun and interactive way to help kids learn about math - especially prime numbers and multiplication, you defnitely want to check out You Can Count on Monsters!  You'll never look at math the same way again!
Giveaway

Two My Kansas City Mommy readers will receive a copy of You Can Count on Monsters for their personal libraries!  This giveaway will end on Friday, May 13 at 11:59 PM Central time. To enter this giveaway, just fill out the ENTRY FORM. You can also receive additional entries for the following (you will check these off on the entry form - please do not leave extra comments relating to these):
