Family Movie Night - 'Field of Vision' Premiers Saturday, June 11th

How often does your family get together for a family movie night?

For us, the summertime is the best time to schedule a weekly family movie night. The fact that girls are allowed to stay up later, and I don't have to rush them off to school in the morning means we can work around swim team, and camp to find at least one night where we can all sit down for a family movie.

This Saturday will be this summer's first Family Movie Night!

I was able to see a preview of the movie, Field of Vision, starring Faith Ford and you can see the trailer here:

This movie tackles tough subjects like bullying and peer pressure but also has a little bit of magic to draw in kids a little younger. I know the girls will enjoy it and we'll have something to talk about afteward. The star quarterback and team leader has to face up to his friends and teammates when he finds out they have been bullying another kid that he has come to like. Kids will think about a time they have had to make a tough decision, but be happy knowing they stuck with the RIGHT decision, even if it's not the easiest.

Who is the MasterMind in your Family?

Photobucket

MasterMind is one of those games that kept my brother and I entertained as we were visiting my grandparents in Vermont. If we weren't skiing, or hiking, we were playing MasterMind.

MasterMind Requires Problem Solving Skills

If you have never played before, the object of the game is to break the color code.The Codebreaker has about 20 chances to figure it out using clues given by the Codemaker. What I realize, having young kids, is that problem solving skills take some time to develop. How cool that Pressman Toys realized this too and developed a new, verticle version of MasterMind for younger kids that use pictures instead of just colors.

Vertical MasterMind for Kids

What better way to learn about codes and using clues to problem solve than with a game! Animal MasterMind Towers challenges kids to guess the order in which their opponent has place animal tiles. The Twofer have really enjoyed playing this together and it's so cute to hear them saying, "Is your elephant above your sheep?". Just a fun twist on a classic game.

MasterMind Towers also come in SpongeBob SquarePants, Disney Fairies, and Looney Toons characters as well!.  For more information check out the MasterMind website and the MasterMind Facebook page.
