Following the format of our last guide, this one will not only have sections for the dad in your life, but it will also have some sections for the family. In this guide, we will share some fun games that we play as a family along with fun activities that the entire family can take part in. Ready? Let’s begin!

For the Children


While the weather might be getting colder outside we can start thinking about enjoying the warm weather with these scooters from Huffy. The pre-school scooters (on the left) has a durable steel frame, a wide, non-slip deck displays graphics featuring favorite characters and is a simple, one-piece design with rear a fender. 
The scooter (on the right) has an aluminum frame and a non-slip deck and the handlebar height can be easily adjusted for the right fit. This scooter can be easily folder to carry around. 
Both of these are available from Amazon for $39.99. You can purchase here: Pre-school & Regular Scooter.
Descendants Signature Doll 

We are fans of the Descendants series in our household. For the hundreds of times that we seen these movies, they all teach great lessons about being yourself, being true to your friends and the importance of family and friends. While we do admit watching part 3 was bittersweet, it is great to know that the legacy of Cameron Boyce will live on with this series. These dolls are available at local retailers or thought Amazon.

Minnie Mouse

These Minnie Mouse Fashion Dolls come in various styles and outfits. She is fully possible and comes with multiple accessories. These dolls can be purchased at Wal-Mart.

Mickey and Minnie Popsockets

If you have a child with a phone that loves Disney, you will want to decorate their phone with these Minnie and Mickey Mouse Popsockets. Popsockets come in multiple designs and can be swapped out depending on the mood for the day. These are $7.99 and available at multiple retailers nationwide.

For the Family that Games together

PlayStation 4

Experience three of the most highly celebrated PS4 games with an all-new bundle which includes a 1TB PS4, DUALSHOCK4 wireless controller and God of War, The Last of Us Remastered, and Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition games. This bundle is available for a limited time at $249.99.

Concrete Genie

Concrete Genie is an upcoming action-adventure game from one of Sony Interactive Entertainment’s smallest development studios, Pixelopus. Concrete Genie follows the heartwarming journey of a bullied teenager named Ash, who escapes his troubles by painting spectacular living landscapes and mischievous Genies throughout his abandoned hometown of Denska–a once bustling seaside town now consumed by Darkness.

I was lucky to play this last year and it was an amazing experience. This will make a great addition to your game library.

Death Stranding

After the collapse of civilization, Sam Bridges must journey across a ravaged landscape crawling with otherworldly threats to save mankind from the brink of extinction. From legendary game creator Hideo Kojima comes an all-new, genre-defying experience for the PlayStation®4 system. 
I’ve been hearing amazing things about this game and hopefully, I’ll find this under my tree this year. 
Giving Back

The holiday season is a great time to give back. Below are a few ideas for gifts that will help different charities.

Flex Watches 

Daring in rich tones, some of your favorite Star Wars symbols adorn this pattern to sleek, stylish effect. FLEX Watches believes it’s time to make a difference, one galaxy at a time. Each FLEX watch color represents a different cause that they have partnered with to give back 10% of gross profit! We all make choices every day. And even though the problems in this world are really big, the small choices we make can add up to a big difference. FLEX is all about those choices. Buy your watch here.
We have written about our son’s bout with epilepsy and this past November I created a fundraiser on my personal page where we raised over $700 for CURE to raise awareness for Epilepsy. Helping others is always a great way to show your children that while it’s great to receive gifts, it is also great to give to others.  If you would like to help to find a cure you can help by donating anything you can by clicking here.
St. Jude 
Every year we donate to St. Jude Children Hospital and we will continue to support them for as long as we can. While I have not run recently to raise money for them you never know what can happen next year. The great thing about donating to St. Jude is that while there parents do not have to worry about any bills. St. Jude covers everything for the families. From housing, groceries and medical bills, St. Jude lets the parents just focus on their children. You can help out by donating here.
