Yoobi’s Cool-for-School Supplies Give Back to Students in Need

06/16/2014 at 02:00 PM ET

Bang for your buck is one thing, but brilliance for your buck is even better.

A new company called Yoobi, which debuts its products at Target this month, has created a line of perfect-for-kids school supplies that give back to schools in need.

Every time you purchase one of their marker sets, notebooks or other fantastically florescent products, they’ll donate a Yoobi item to a school via classroom packs which are sent across the U.S. (To learn more about how schools are selected, click here).

The company’s co-founder and CEO, Ido Leffler, who is also a father of two girls, dreamed up the idea when he discovered just how drab the school supply aisle can be.

With three kids of her own, Sarah Jessica Parker definitely knows why it’s important to celebrate motherhood.

So the actress and shoe designer teamed up with Hallmark Cards to create a line of greeting cards, stationery and gift wrap, exclusively sold in stores. And just like her style, it’s amazing.

Launching just in time for Mother’s Day, the collection ($4 – $7) will also include seasonal options for birthday, friendship, love, thank you, congratulations, wedding and baby.

“I’m excited to be involved in a project that will give people something tangible and fun, warm and sincere, to hold onto and remember the people and relationships that really matter,” she said.

Soleil Moon Frye: How to Make a Holiday Snow Globe

12/17/2013 at 02:00 PM ET

To get an idea of how many arts and crafts projects Soleil Moon Frye works on with her two daughters, Poet, 8, and Jagger, 5, just take a look around their L.A. home.

“Our tiles are covered in paint. If you look under our couch pillows, there is paint. Our table is covered in paint,” says the expectant mom-of-two. “It’s very, very messy, but that’s the fun of it.”

That fun reaches North Pole-like levels on Christmas Eve, when the former child star, 37, and her husband, producer Jason Goldberg, 43, host a holiday blowout — complete with a crafting area for the littlest guests.

We Tried It: Evenflo Deluxe Advanced Double Electric Breast Pump

12/08/2013 at 11:00 AM ET

Let’s face it: If you’re a working mother, you will develop a highly intimate relationship with your breast pump.

And depending on how many hours you work and how often your baby eats, you could be sitting down with your pump three, four, even five times a day — even more for stay-at-home moms who pump exclusively. So finding the right piece of equipment is of the utmost importance.

We recently had the opportunity to try out the Evenflo Deluxe Advanced Double Electric ($130). Here’s a breakdown of what works well (and what doesn’t):

Great Ideas: How to Throw a Ghoulishy-Good Halloween Kids Party

10/10/2013 at 02:00 PM ET

Halloween is one of my family’s favorite holidays. Not only is it frightfully-fun, but it’s the one time of the year where we can let it all hang out … literally. But as a full-time event marketing executive and busy mom of three kids aged 10, 6 and almost 4, I’m always on the lookout for cool, easy-to-create holiday ideas.

In the weeks leading up to the spooky day, the kids and I like to decorate the house with pumpkins, cobwebs, tombstones and skeletons, buy tons of candy to give away and scour sites for the perfect costume (we typically get ours from buycostumes.com). But this year, I’ve decided to throw a boo-tastic bash that my children and their friends can enjoy. Below are my fave kid-friendly ideas. Check them out.
