Disney store_s Sleep Shop Hotline

Bedtime just got so much better!
Families and fans can add a little Disney magic into bedtime with a new Sleep Shop Hotline from the Disney store. The toll-free number, 1-877-7-MICKEY, has five special messages from Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck and Goofy to give kids something to look forward to at bedtime.

Can You Help A School Out?

Normally I would only include a contest such as this, if Bay area schools were involved, but if you could help a school out.  And maybe get more books for other schools, it would be appreciated.

I Just Scored a Kindle E Reader for $90 Here’s How!

I just scored a new Kindle PaperWhite for $90 (list $119) plus tax.  Bargains like this usually fly under the radar, but Amazon has a promotion for a free Amazon Gift card PLUS 25% off a new Kindle E-reader.  Why is this a really good deal?  A re-certified Kindle PaperWhite is $99 with a 30 day return warranty.  Mine is new, less expensive and has a 1 year warranty!

This is how it worked for me.

  • Click on the link and answer two questions about my current Kindle.
  • Next fill out the info to ship your current device to Amazon.
  • Amazon then gave me a 25% off discount to apply to another Kindle.  I chose another PaperWhite, but you can choose any E Reader.  I selected Free Two Day Shipping so that my new Kindle would be delivered before I had to ship my old one to Amazon.
  • Today my new Kindle was delivered and I will ship the old one back on Monday.  As the kids would say, Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy.

Once Amazon looks at my old Kindle I will get a gift card for between $5-$25 which is icing on the cake.  The promotion is scheduled to last until September 29, 2018.  Click here to go to Amazon.  

  Jr. Ranger Program Open for Registration!

Srce: Jr. Ranger
The Junior Ranger Program is a great way to get your kids (both boys and girls) outdoors and into a free, safe, and fun program! Programs take place in several Santa Clara County Parks each spring and fall for kids ages 9-11 (usually 4th-5th grade). Junior rangers explore park history and nature through outdoor adventures with park staff. Students who successfully complete the program earn a badge and certificate!   
Fall dates begin Sept 4, 2018. Apply now. 
 Also, I could not find a requirement that you be a resident of Santa Clara County to apply.

Did you know that most advertising for an event happens about 30 days before the show, but tickets go on sale as early as 6 months before the date? That’s why CelebrateFamily.us has created this “Now on Sale’ page. Find family friendly special events by date. Don’t know the date, but want to see which events are coming to town?
