Family game night is back in a big way with this new Switch game. I feel like this is the perfect middle ground between my tween always wanting to be on a device and me always trying to get her off of them and spend time with people. She can really interact with people and play games.
Clubhouse Games gives you all sorts of new ways to connect with friends and family. I love that we can all play as a family together in our living room or my kids can play with their cousins that live three states away. Quarantine has been hard on us all and what better way to help than to play a game of Chess with your cousin. 44 of the included games support online play so you have lots of options.

One of the really fun things about this game is that you can play it in a lot of modes. You can play in touch screen mode or use the joy -con controllers. You can play on one system, play using multiple systems or play with others around the world.
This game was made for the Switch! Some games work better with the touch screen and some work better with the controllers and the Switch lets you do both. It also is perfect for families! Four people can play at once on some games so less whining about whose turn it is!
This game runs around $40 for the download code and $50 for the actual game. That is less than $1 a game. One of the best values on the video game market right now. We received a copy of New Super Lucky’s Tale! in exchange for an honest review. I have been on the hunt for great games for younger kids to play on the Nintendo Switch. My older daughter loves playing Breath of the Wild and Diablo III with my husband, but those games are too difficult and violent for my 5-year-old. When Nintendo sent us New Super Lucky’s Tale, my younger daughter was thrilled. Finally a game for her! What I didn’t expect was Lucky to be such a fun game my older daughter would want to play it too.
New Super Lucky’s Tale! for Nintendo SwitchAbout the Product: Join Lucky on his thrilling journey through the Book of Ages, a magical artifact that opens doors to amazing worlds. Meet new friends, explore exciting lands, and recover the missing pages from the evil sorcerer Jinx and his villainous family, the dreaded Kitty Litter. New Super Lucky’s Tale features all-new levels, story, cinematics, and character dialogue, tighter movement and player controls, a fully rotatable 3D camera, and sweet upgrades to nearly every other aspect of the game, including art and lighting, UI, sound, music, and more New Super Lucky’s Tale is a reimagining of an older game. This 3D Platform version has been expanded and the art of the game is bright and fun. The story and the characters are adorable and fun. It is charming and fun for children but also has enough of a challenge and story that adults like playing it as well. It is perfect for people who are used to older Nintendo Platforms to become more familiar with the Switch. I love all of the attention to detail in this game. You can jump around, burrow underground, solve puzzles and complete different stages. There is a variety of different gameplay including a 3D open world, story-based levels, 2D side-scrolling challenges, puzzles, and mini-games. It really does have a little bit of everything. This game is a great value for a Switch game at $39.99, it is significantly cheaper than most Switch Games making me label it a must-buy. My only two criticisms? I wish that the game would read some of the dialogue out loud, instead of needing the child to be able to read to understand it. While this isn’t a problem for older kids, it makes the game a bit harder for my 5-year-old. My only other criticism is the load time between levels seems pretty long, but my daughter enjoys it enough that it is worth the wait. If you are looking for a great game for your younger kids. Grab New Super Lucky’s Tale!

CharminisWe have been so thrilled with these Charminis. They are easy to make and don’t require any chemicals to get them to stick, which this mama loves. My daughter has had so much fun creating these charms!
Through the magic of water-activated fusing materials, CharMinis Deluxe Jewelry Studio lets girls create their own adorable mini charms to wear and share with friends. With themes like “sweet treats” (cakes, pies and ice cream cones) and “fashion icons” (hearts, stars and bows), each kit comes with hundreds of options to make colorful, sparkly tiny charms. Kids select the charm pieces they want to combine, fuse them together with water, then stack and watch as they magically stick together. A fun Glitterizer globe allows girls to add sparkle and gloss.This set was one of the things my daughter got for Christmas last year and it was a complete hit. She made every single charm into bracelets, earrings and necklaces. She loved them so much that I have bought her 4-5 expansion sets for this Christmas. I can’t wait for her to get them. If you have a crafty kid, you need this kit!
