FREE PRINTABLE SUMMER ELECTRONICS RULES

Thank you for visiting Cori's Cozy Corner! Please make sure to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our E-mails!

FREE PRINTABLE SUMMER ELECTRONICS RULESThe first week of summer vacation started just as I thought it would with my kids being lumps playing on their phones, watching tv, and playing on the computer. I let them have some down time for the first week without pestering them about chores, early bedtimes, or anything else they have to deal with during the school year. THAT was week one. They had their break from all responsibilities. I figure everyone deserves a break from responsibilities, right?
summer rules sheetI don’t want them to get out of the habit of doing chores and using their brains so enter my SUMMER ELECTRONICS RULES. There are a variety of tasks/chores my girls can do to earn electronics time. Each chore is worth 15 minutes of electronics time and they can save up and carry over electronics time if they want. Once they earn electronics time there are several things they need to do before they can cash in electronics time such as reading for 30 minutes, doing a physical activity for at least 15 minutes, etc.

I purposely included educational websites as one of the tasks my girls have to do before they can cash in electronics time because playing on the computer doing educational games helps take away their urges for playing on electronics so much but they are still learning. So far both my girls have responded well to my “RULES”. The each did a few chores already and are working towards being able to cash in their electronics time. My older daughter has been drawing in her sketchbook for over an hour, hasn’t bothered her sister, and is entertaining herself without electronics. WIN! My younger daughter read for 30 minutes, played on the computer on a math website for well over 30 minutes, vacuumed the floor, brushed the dog, and is about to go outside for some exercise and fresh air. Once they get their tasks done they will be able to cash in their electronics time or they can save it up for another day.

They must do the tasks (reading, physical activity, etc.) BEFORE they can cash in electronics time. TASKS cannot be carried over to other days and must be done on the day they want to cash in the electronics time. I’m keeping track of their electronics time on a Google Spreadsheet because I can access it from my computer or my phone. I was going to give them popsicle sticks for every 15 minutes of electronics time but my girls are older, didn’t really need the tangible stick as a reminder, and they both told me not to waste the sticks.

SUMMER ELECTRONICS RULES!

Print them as is or since they are a Google Document you can copy and paste it into Word and edit it to meet your needs. 🙂

image004In Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” an all-new spectacular adventure featuring the unforgettable characters from Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories, Alice returns to the whimsical world of Underland to save her friend the Mad Hatter. Directed by James Bobin, who brings a unique vision to the spectacular world Tim Burton created on screen in “Alice in Wonderland,” the film is written by Linda Woolverton based on characters created by Lewis Carroll and produced by Joe Roth, Suzanne Todd and Jennifer Todd and Tim Burton with John G. Scotti serving as executive producer. “Alice Through the Looking Glass” reunites the all-star cast from the worldwide blockbuster phenomenon, including: Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska, Matt Lucas and Helena Bonham Carter along with the voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen and Timothy Spall. We are also introduced to several new characters: Zanik Hightopp (Rhys Ifans), the Mad Hatter’s father and Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen), a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.

Alice Kingsleigh (Wasikowska) has spent the past three years sailing the high seas. Upon her return to London, she comes across a magical looking glass and returns to the fantastical realm of Underland. Reuniting with her friends the White Rabbit, Absolem, the White Queen and the Cheshire Cat, Alice must save the Hatter and Underland itself, before time runs out. Presented in Digital 3D™, Real D 3D and IMAX® 3D, Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass” opens in U.S. theaters on May 27, 2016.

movies-5When my girls were babies one of the local theaters had a special program for moms with babies so they could see new movies while being able to bring their babies with them. The program was cancelled but I am so excited to share with you that there is a new similar program at Silverspot Cinema in Coconut Creek at 4441 Lyons Road. They launched “Mommy’s Morning Movies,” a special program geared to moms with babies and tots, with meet ups for the first show of the day each Thursday starting Thursday, May 26.

Movie tickets are $7 per person.  Children ages one and under are free.

Moms will be able to select a film for the group the Monday prior to that week’s meet-up.

“This fun program will provide moms with the opportunity to watch a film amongst other moms and young children,” said Randi Emerman, vice president of marketing for Silverspot.  “Moms can enjoy a first run film they’ve been wanting to see or a fun film for the little ones.”

Summer Is Coming! Here’s How To Have The Perfect Family BBQ

This post may contain affiliate links.
Thank you for visiting Cori's Cozy Corner! Please make sure to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our E-mails!

You’ve probably had dozens of barbecues before, and they’re usually great, or average. The warm weather can quickly drain your energy, the food gets hard to cook and relaxing inside becomes more and more appealing.

That being said, barbecues are a great way for you and your family to get some outdoor time, while enjoying a delicious meal. Summer is the best time of the year for them, and it’s important to make the most of the warm weather. You know it’ll be gone as quick as it arrives!

So, with the warmer weather just around the corner, here’s your checklist to throwing the perfect family barbecue. Have a read down this post when you’re planning things, to make sure you don’t miss a trick!

The cooking

5535263327_e9c6e3cd7e_zFlickr

Sure, you could run down to the store and pick up one of those cheap disposable barbecues, or you could do things right. Think about the cost of buying multiple disposable ones each year; it can add up! Plus, they’re just annoying to light and setup. They have no protection against the breeze, and that can put your fire out as quickly as it got started.

Think about what you need to do to enjoy a barbecue. You need to cook quickly, before the warm weather disappears. You and your family also don’t want to be sat out in the sun too long, for obvious reasons. Cooking and eating fast is key here.

You also need to cook lots of food at once, so everyone gets fed. Don’t let one of your family members go hungry while everyone else munches down! That would be extremely unfair.

So, how do you combine both these issues into one solution? The answer is a full, proper barbecue – as big as you can get. That being said, you don’t want something too confusing. Ease of use is key when it comes to your enjoyment of the occasion.

You should be looking at full sized outdoor grills, that can cook a lot of food and are quick to get going. Most modern grills possess these traits in spades – you could read this review of the Kamado Joe Classic Grill to see what I mean.

You want to start with a clean, well-oiled grill, so the food does not stick. Scrub it with a grill brush then with some vegetable or olive oil. Don’t flip the meat constantly, either. Once will do. You risk not letting it cook thoroughly if you’re constantly moving it.

The food

When you’re planning the food, think variety. You have to have a bit of everything so you can appeal to everyone’s tastes. Start with the meat. Burgers and sausages are good staples, and think kebabs, steaks and drumsticks too. Make sure you buy a good mix of spicy, and non-spicy. Not everyone is partial to that taste!

You should also keep an eye on those side dishes. A burger in a bun is fine, but it’s the sides that make it special. Think couscous, garlic bread or potato salad. Don’t overdo the sides, though. Keep them minimal and put focus on the meats.

Next, you need to factor in some desserts. This is a perfect time to bake together as a family to produce some buns or cakes. Again, like the sides, you don’t want to overdo it. Meat is expensive, and desserts and sides will fill people up before they can finish it! Keep it simple. Fairy cakes, ice cream and fruit would be good choices for you.

Don’t forget your vegetarian family members, either! Be careful if you’re cooking meat and Quorn on the same barbecue. You could possibly buy a small disposable, just to cook the vegetarian food separately.

Lastly, there are your drinks! You’ll want to buy in some cheap water, cola and lemonade; they’re staples of any gathering, especially a summer one. The adults will perhaps want some beer in a cooler, or maybe an alcoholic punch would be a good idea? Sangria is rather easy for you to make, and is a tasty treat that will go down well.

The entertainment

water-fight-442257_640Pixabay

Your perfect family barbecue won’t be complete without some form of entertainment! Obviously, you don’t want to be spending a lot, but it’s quite easy to keep people occupied while the food cooks.

Perhaps you could choose a party theme. This will extend to your food, and to your decor. It must be a theme that goes perfectly with an outdoor setting. Hawaiian, surf or sports would be good choices in this situation. Consider playing dress-up, or wearing masks.

Then, you should build a basic music playlist. This should be all-inclusive, and not too distracting. Think relaxing dance songs, and maybe some acoustic tunes. You shouldn’t just factor yourself in; think of your family’s tastes!

Next, because your barbecue will be based outdoors (hopefully!), cook up some outdoor games and activities. The kids will be occupied with some sports equipment, like a football, tennis ball or badminton rackets. As for the adults, card and trivia games would be good for you to include, which can be played once the food is over.

You should also consider putting on a water fight, weather permitting. Be sure to store plenty of spare towels for guests, and ask people before you drop water on their head! You could build a slip n’ slide, buy in hundreds of water bombs, or get some cheap plastic toy guns. This will make the day more memorable and fun for the kids, and give the adults something to laugh at!

The result

If you followed this post, then congratulations! You’ve created an awesome family barbecue, and a lot of family memories. And that’s the most important thing you can do this summer. Your family is the most precious part of your life, and enjoying your time with them is one of the most rewarding things you can do.

So make the most of that warm sun, and enjoy a wonderful meal to boot! Leave a comment down below with your own barbecue tips, tricks and memories.
