I keep this book in the car for the girls any time we have a long commute - it keeps them quiet and occupied, which preserves my sanity!

Brain Bend by Mister Mourao

Brain Bend is a unique book featuring 25 wild, vibrant, architecturally themed mazes, along with black-and-white versions of the same artwork for coloring in. The stunning, mind-bending designs, range in style from joyfully freeform to impressively structured, offer a stimulating visual challenge to maze and coloring enthusiasts. It also includes maze solutions at the back of the book. And the perforated pages make it easy to remove the designs, and high-quality, heavy, uncoated paper make them a pleasure to solve and color.

Peyton and I take turns with this book. The mazes are perfectly complex and a great way to unwind and decompress.

BUSY FAMILY CALENDAR 2018 will organize and track up to five family members while enjoying charming season artwork by Alison Cole.

I can't even explain how perfect this calendar is! It's basically replaced my planner - and I was ALL ABOUT planners last year! It's a great way to keep everyone informed and abreast of the day to day activities of our busy family. 

COLOR FOR CALM ALL YEAR LONG 2018 By Carrie Stephens

ISBN: 9781631063510

Rock Point Publishers | August 1, 2017

$14.99 US · $18.99 CAN · 316 pages · Calendar

COLOR FOR CALM ALL YEAR LONG 2018 offers 314 coloring templates for grown-ups looking to calm down and relax in a demanding digital age. Our lives become busier with each passing day, and as technology escalates, so does our access to work, obligations, and stress. Constant stimulation and expectation have left us burnt out and distanced from the present moment. This boxed calendar has a unique feature of five double sided colored pencils attached to the back stand. This will make it easy to color yourself calm all year long!

I'm quickly discovering that Quarto Group provides not only out of the box entertainment for the entire family, but also very useful surprises as well! 

Until next time...
