With Earth Day around the corner, I have been looking for some inspiration to help teach the kids about caring for the earth. An easy place to start is by re-using and re-purposing items we already have at home. There were lots of great posts shared last week at The Kids Weekly Co-Op that focused on Earth Day or activities using recycled objects. These 12 Activities for Earth Day will not only engage your kids, but will help them learn about ways they can care for the planet.

Roll a Pizza Game - Free printables to make your own pizza game while you wait to enjoy a Tony's Pizza. #tonyspizzeria #PMedia #ad

Every Friday is Pizza Friday in our household. This fun tradition is one that the kids and I look forward to all week. I love the fact that I don't have to think about what to make for dinner and the kids love pizza so it's a win all the way around. How do you make pizza night even better? By turning pizza night into a pizza party! You don't need an elaborate menu or guest list to have a pizza party. All you need is Tony's Pizza, a fun party game and lots of laughs.

Every family has traditions and life lessons that get passed on from one generation to the next. If you've already watched the above video, My Uncle’s Gift, then you know that New York Life values these lessons. If you haven't watched the video, take a minute (it is just about a minute) to watch and think about who in your life shaped it positively and encouraged you to Keep Good Going.

In the video My Uncle's Gift, a man recalls how his desire to be a film maker was inspired by a gift from his uncle. Watching this helped me think about how I should never underestimate what I have to give. I am a mom to young kids and in the busyness of survival, I often forget what I am giving to my children. But the truth is I am giving them something in the many small moments in our day.

I am from Italian descent, and as you might imagine many of the lessons and traditions that I remember are somehow associated with food. Recipes and the stories surrounding them have been passed down and I have actually been passing them down to my children without being aware of it. One of my favorite treats as a kid were the zeppoles that my grandpa and uncle would make. Zeppoles are essentially puffs of fried dough served warm and topped with powdered sugar. Just the smell of them cooking up bring back memories of family gatherings.
