Namits Travel Game

The Namits Travel Game was invented by a mother of seven children who wanted to find a way to entertain and teach her kids while they were waiting. Her game has now won several parenting awards and is a great game for kids to play everywhere. It’s especially perfect for the car.

Namits is a set of 20 double-sided laminated cards (on a ring) that presents 165 word games. For ages 4 and up.

For older children (6 and up), try the Namits Challenge.

I think I was the last person in town to buy a pair of Crocs, and now I can’t believe I waited so long. In the mountain town where I live, lots of people practically live in these in the spring and summer. Now all five of us in the family have them. The kids can splash through puddles and streams and keep on walking. They are easy to clean and easy to slip on and off. Crocs are made of a croslite PCCR material. They are slip-resistant with non-marking soles, and they are anti-microbial and odor resistant.

Crocs respond to your body heat by molding to fit your feet. My six year old says walking in her Crocs is like “walking barefoot on squishy carpet all day long.” See if these aren’t the most comfortable $30 shoes you’ve ever owned. has an enormous selection of these, plus free shipping, free return shipping, and no sales tax, and they are running some great coupon codes, too: Coupons
