The Heroes in Our Lives and Our Country

19 Days of Suffrage Day 8.1

Today is one of the most important days of the year, Veteran’s Day. It is that time of year where we honor our Veterans and thank them for all they have done. Really, there is nothing we could do to ever repay them for their service and sacrifice, but a ‘thank you’ can go a long way. The men and women who fought, died, and are fighting for this country are some of the biggest heroes this nation could ever have. I think, in honor of these heroes and in honor of Veteran’s Day, we continue the #19DaysofSuffrage campaign by reflecting on those who have sacrificed to provide our freedoms. Take a moment and thank a Veteran, have your kids sit down and talk with a Veteran, get them to think about how everything this one person did ensured our freedoms we have today.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After the quality time with a Veteran, get the whole family together and think about these questions.

  1. Do you have heroes in your family?
  2. Who is your hero?
  3. Are they Military or Non-Military?

Share your thoughts in the comments below and give a shout out to your heroes.

While reflecting on your heroes, take a moment to think about all the women fighters in the military. Did you know it wasn’t until 1948 when congress passed the Women’s Armed Services Integration Act? This granted women permanent status in the military subject to military authority and regulations and entitled to veterans benefits. Women served in the military long before that Act was signed. In fact, in WWI, 400,000 women served at home and abroad as mechanics, ambulance drives, pilots, administrators, nurses, and in other non-combat roles. However, it wasn’t until 1948 when they were granted benefits and permanent status. That was only 67 years ago. Think about how far we have come and how far we still have to go.

Take this moment and also share your thoughts on what it means to be a woman in our Suffragette: The 19 Days of Suffrage Giveaway. You could win a beautiful Suffragette Promotional Pack featuring a tote bag, bracelet, journal and mini poster.

Suffragette: Hope For Our Daughters

19 Days of Suffragette 6

The #19daysofsuffrage campaign continues with a message of Hope. This week marks an important day for US citizens, Veteran’s Day. It is a day where we honor those who have fought, died and are fighting in the military for the freedoms that we have and to ensure our freedoms remain. Veteran’s Day reminds every US citizen that we would not be where we are today without our Military Heroes. We thank them and their service, their sacrifices, and their strength.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It is important to also note that our freedoms were also fought within our country; women throughout the years have fought for equal rights. Women have fought and suffered to show that they (we) are equal to men. We have come a long way, but we still have so far to go.

Read the following statements and decide whether you think these facts were true in 1915 or in 2015. Then watch the video, #HopeForOurDaughters Special Video, to find out if you were correct.

75 million girls are Child Laborers

1915
2015
|
Women make up 70% of the population living on less than a dollar a day
|

2015
|
62 million girls don’t get to go to school
|

2015
|

Free Fun Party Popples Printables and Activities

Popples printables and Activities

Join Bubbles, Sunny, Lulu, Izzy, and Yikes in all new adventures that are always a pop, skip and a jump away now on Netflix! These Best Popple Pals (BPP) are always wanting to help their friends, neighbors, and each other. Their efforts, however, oftentimes backfire in hilarious ways. For example, Lulu makes an invention that is supposed to turn the treepod into a smart house, but once it is hooked up, it turns the treepod into a category 5 death trap. The Popples then spend the rest of episode trying to unwind the mayhem the invention has caused. Luckily, for Bubbles, Sunny, Lulu, Izzy, and Yikes, they always manage to save the day, from whatever disaster they have created, in their own POP-tastic way!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

At this moment there are five two-part episodes featuring the BPP’s and their adventures. The episodes are as follows:

  • Smart House Arrest/Sunny Loses Her Pop
    • Oops! Lulu’s science fair invention locks the pals inside the Treepod; Friends try everything to cure Sunny’s cold so she can play in the big game
  • It Doesn’t Take a Genius/Palentine’s Day
    • The whole town thinks Yikes is a genius after Lulu switches tests with him; Yikes and Mike Mine Face a big challenge on Palentine’s Day
  • Help-R Hinder/The Legend of Popfoot
    • Lulu’s robot goes haywire and tries to “help” everyone in town; Sunny tricks her friends into thinking a scary beast is headed for popplopolis
  • Win a Free Treehouse/Bubble’s Doubles
    • With their clubhouse at stake, the pals hunt for a lost treasure; Bubbles finds a way to be in two places at once, but her double makes trouble
  • Student Buddy President/The BFF App
    • Mike Mine tried to turn two pals against each other in the race for class president; Bubbles realizes a “Bff” app can’t replace friends

Whisker Haven Free Printable Activities

Whisker Haven Tales header

Where do Princess Palace Pets go to relax and recuperate after a hard day of work and play? Take a peek into the world of Whisker Have for a few minutes and catch the palace pets in their new adventures. Whisker Haven is a safe place for the palace pets to relax and meet other palace pets. Here they are able to talk to each other, celebrate big events and make new friends!

Ms. Featherbon is the magical gatekeeper of Whisker Haven and guide to all the Palace Pets. Treasure, Petite, Sultan, Pumpkin, Dreamy, Berry, Lily, Bibbidy, and Sweetie are just a few that appear in the new animated series produced by Disney Junior. I hope the show will start to include some of the more unique palace pet characters such as Blossom, Gleam, or Taj.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Each episode is around three minutes long, making them just long enough for the little ones (or adults) who may have short attention spans. There are 10 episodes as I write this. There could be more episodes later depending on the popularity of these shorts.

Episodes:

    1. Welcome to Whisker Haven: When Pumpkin floods the ballroom, it’s up to Treasure and her friends to save her.
    2. The Whisker Haven Night Knight Guard: Sultan and Treasure try to prove who is the bravest knight in Whisker Haven. After a series of tests, the Palace Pets ask Pumpkin to judge who should be named to the Whisker Haven Knight Night Guard.
    3. Throwing a Ball: Pumpkin is throwing the most grand ball that Whisker Haven has ever seen, and the Palace Pets are here to help! But can she get the palace ready in time for the celebration?
    4. Cake-tillion: The annual Cake-tillion celebration is about to begin in Whisker Haven! But where is Lily with all of the whisker cakes? The Palace Pets must find her in the woods before the sweetest day of the year!
    5. Hat’s a Wrap!: It’s the Whisker Haven Derby, and one of the Palace Pets is chosen as the Royal Derby Starter. Pumpkin creates a hat perfect for the occasion which she gives Treasure, but Treasure is not so sure about Pumpkin’s derby day gift.
    6. A Dreamy Birthday: Berry, Pumpkin and Treasure are preparing a birthday party surprise for Dreamy! Can they successfully plan the perfect birthday party without Dreamy finding out?
    7. The Cookie Boogie!: When Ms. Featherbon’s magic dust turns Berry’s cat-shaped cookies into real cats, it’s up to Treasure and Berry to stop the cookies from ruining Pumpkin’s Dance Recital.
    8. TuTu Terrific: The Pets visit the Tutu Flower Fields to make their own tutus for the Tutu Terrific Parade. Petite may not know what makes her terrific, but her best friends sure do!
    9. Harvest Haven: It’s time for the Annual Harvest in Whisker Haven. As the pets try to find enough biscuits for the Critterzens, Treasure and Sultan compete to find the most biscuits while Petite searches with a plan of her own…
    10. Flying High Tea: Sultan’s eager to try Berry’s biscuits, but her prizes treats are only available for the Pets’ tea party. The rambunctious tiger joins the event, but unfortunately, the tea party attendance comes with strict rules.

With such wonderful episodes, I thought it would be fun to include some printable activities featuring the characters of Whisker Haven Tales. The kids will love searching for Berry, matching the shadows, coloring their favorite Palace Pet, playing the Whisker Haven Memory Game or printing the stickers for art projects, books or crafts. Let’s be honest, we adults even get a kick out of these fun printables. The Word Search may be to advanced for some kids but I know some adults who may just spend five minutes to complete the puzzle to help clear the head after a long day.

All the printables below are free to download, simply click the images and save the PDF to your computer. If you download any of the printables, I do request you donate to SKGaleana. The printables do take time and effort to complete and any amount you can give will help support this blog and keep the printables coming. Thank you in advance!

Suffragette: The 19 Days of Suffrage Giveaway

When you take the time to vote this year, remember to take a moment and thank all the women who fought to give you the right to vote. It was not an easy battle. Those who fought for our right to vote lost so much. Equality was an alien term for the leaders during that time and sparked fear in those who could not handle change. As such, these Suffragettes were made to look crazy, never allowed to see their kids, had to hide from the law, lost their jobs and some even lost their lives. Yet, the women continued to fight, never giving into the popular archaic thoughts that infected the lives of society. The women looked to the future, to hope of equality.

Suffragette Poster

In recognition of their fight, Focus Features took this momentous event in history and created a film, inspired by true events, called Suffragette. This heart-breaking and inspirational drama focuses on the real foot soldiers of the Suffragette movement and how they turned to violence as the only route to change. They were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This month, Focus Features wants to honor the 19th Amendment, which granted women in the United States the right to vote in 1919. with the campaign, “19 Days of Suffrage” (#19daysofsuffrage). Today is Day 2 of the “19 Days of Suffrage.”

19 Days of Suffragette 2

I invite you to share posts on twitter, facebook, Instagram or whatever social media platform you prefer, regarding the theme featured each week for the “19 Days of Suffrage.” This is a great opportunity to remember the heroines in your life, the people who inspired you and what you are most thankful for.

Each Week’s theme:

  • Week of 11/2: Post about the first time you voted
  • Week of 11/9: Talk about the heroines in your family that serve or have served in the Military.
  • Week of 11/16: Who in your life inspired you?
  • Week of 11/23: What are you most Thankful For and what still needs to be fought for? #fightsnotover

Suffragette

In honor of the movie Suffragette and the “19 Days of Suffrage,” I have a very special promotional pack to giveaway to one lucky winner.
