Last week we were invited to the grand reopening of Chuck E. Cheese in San Bruno, CA. They had remodeled the interior and exterior of their restaurant and it’s amazing!

The new design introduces more of a restaurant atmosphere for adults, featuring a nice ambiance with neutral tones and sleek graphics that create a more inviting, and friendly environment, while not taking away from the fun and games that kids enjoy so much.

One of my favorite things about the remodel was the self-service kiosks that are now available near the entrance. They definitely make ordering off the menu simple and convenient for parents! We got a Chuck E. Cheese All You Can Play bracelet, which meant that my son was free to play all games as many times as he wanted.

After playing for a while we were so hungry. We ordered one of their large delicious pizzas made from scratch, half cheese for my son, and half veggies for myself. 

While we were there having dinner, there was a birthday party going on. I personally enjoyed seeing how the new party sections were more private and spacious for the guests. 

I asked my son which was his favorite thing about the remodel, and he said that he loved the new light up dance floor, and well, if you could see it and dance on it you would totally agree with him! 

After finishing dinner we counted our tickets and went to pick a few fun prizes to take home. It was such a fun summer afternoon at chuck e cheese with my favorite person in the whole world. If you live in the area you have to visit this location!

The Best Counting Math Kits for Bilingual Preschoolers

Posted by

HITN Learning sent me one of CLEO & cuquin Family Fun! Counting Math Kit a few days ago and we couldn’t be more excited about trying all the activities in the kit.

The Best Counting Math Kit for Bilingual Preschoolers

My son’s favorite part about the kit is the story book included. The book is about a disappearing picnic, and the whole story was printed in English and Spanish, which is fantastic! I think that we already read it in both languages like 10 times. He was also really interested in the game board. I think he will actually learn a lot about math with that board game while having fun.

One of the great things about Cleo & Cuquin math concepts is that they include a coupon to download and enjoy their app, making the whole learning process really interactive.

There are three amazing Cleo & Cuquin math kits, the one we have is a counting Math Kit, and you can also find a sorting math kit and 3D shapes math kit.

Some of the key benefits for schools and families from their kits are:

  • Each kit focus on important kindergarten math skills, like counting, sorting and 3D shapes.
  • They include an easy to use parent guide that supports you and help you improve and navigate the activities included in the box.
  • All the activities, printed and digital, are bilingual. They are perfect for all English language learners.
  • The kit included engaging physical play activities that help get everyone in the family involved in the learning process.

We hang up the activity poster in my son’s bedroom yesteday and it looks great. It will help us practice the things we are learning everyday when we see it.

I really recommend checking out all their kits and other bilingual resources here. They are creative and engaging and I believe they will help my bilingual preschooler get ready for kindergarten next year.

Our Easiest and Most Special Birthday Party Ever | Live Colorful

A week ago my mom came to visit from Mexico. Having her here has been a super special way to celebrate Jaxon’s birthday!

Last time she was here was when Jaxon was born, four years ago. Can you imagine how special it was for us to have her with us on his birthday?

We celebrated Jaxon’s birthday in one of his favorite spots, our local Chuck E. Cheese’s. The best part was probably being able to make a reservation like a month or two before, and forget about it until two days before the party.

My mom really appreciated that chuck e. cheese let us add a touch of personalization to our party with our own DIY goodie bags, themed balloons, party hats, themed cake and other decorations that Jaxon asked her to bring from Mexico and that featured his favorite book characters.

We got a boxes of chalk as party favors for each of our guests and Jaxon really wanted to have an ice cream cake, but we easily could have ordered everything straight from Chuck E. Cheese’s, from goody bags and balloons to cakes since they have all of that in store too. Anyway, it was nice to know that we could easily decide from all the options or packages that they offered that fit our budget.

The day of the party we got to Chuck E. Cheese’s twenty minutes before our event. We played some games with Jaxon and then got our special tables ten minutes before the event started. Our dedicated host handled everything from ordering the food for us, added extra kids to our event, bringing our food, encouraging everyone to sing the happy birthday, lighting the birthday cake candles, slicing the cake for each guest, to clean-up and even storing our leftover cake in the freezer until we left.
