Neighborhood Basketball Tournament

If you’re family is like mine, you’ve got some real basketball fans in the house.  Instead of just watching games on TV during basketball season, I try to get my kids and neighbors in on the action with neighborhood basketball tournaments. Whether you’re playing “H-O-R-S-E” or a simple game of one-on-one, there’s just something about a basketball goal that demands for friends to get together and have some fun.

You could play family vs family, girls vs boys, or even adults vs kids (just be careful—if the kids win, they will never let you live it down!). Get your game started on an adjustable-height basketball system from Lifetime Products—that way, you can lower the hoop, so even younger kids can be all-stars.

To celebrate the championship game, you could even give away hot chocolate and snacks to everyone who turned out to watch the event. Or maybe you could turn the entire tournament into an official neighborhood event and hold a potluck dinner after the final game. This is an awesome way to bring people together and get to know your neighbors better. So, get out there, give that basketball a workout and get the whole neighborhood in on the fun!

Santa's Secret Shed
Shhhhhh. Don't tell my kids. The other day I talked with Santa at the mall and he informed me he is bringing my little girl a play kitchen. I'm so excited, she's going to love it! However, Santa was a bit concerned because the box is so big. He was worried that with such a big box he may not be able to fit everything in his sleigh on Christmas Eve. So, he asked if there was any possible way he could deliver the present early and hide it at our house until Christmas Eve when he'll put it under the tree. Yikes! At first I thought there was no possible way I'd be able to hide a present that large at our house. WAIT! Ding, ding! I just remembered the new Lifetime shed that we built in our backyard. It'san8'x5' shedso it has plenty of room to hide a play kitchen box. However, my son does likes to play in there sometimes and pret...
How Much Weight Can My Folding Table Hold?
One of the most frequently asked questions I hear at Lifetime as a member of the Tables Chairs team is: "How much weight will this folding table hold?" That's a pretty loaded question, no pun intended. You would think the answer would be pretty cut-and-dry. Truth is, it's actually quite complicated. But, as part of my continuing series on what features to look for when picking the perfect folding table, today I'm going to help answer that question while helping you understand why durability is so important to consider when buying a folding table. So, as a shopper, where should you start to try and figure out which table is strong enough for your needs? First, before you purchase a folding table, think about what you primarily want to use the table for. Paper crafts may not require as much durability as a table at a construc...
What to Get a Tween for Christmas? A Lifetime Youth Kayak!
Are you still trying to figure what to get a Tween or a "kid who has everything" on your Christmas list?Trust me, I know how you feel. As a mom of an 8-year-old, I completely understand how tough it is to come up with gift ideas for those ages when they aren't really into characters or toys anymore. But, if you have a child who loves being active in the water, I have a perfect idea for you - a Lifetime Youth Kayak! My family tested the pink Lifetime Wave Kayak this summer and we absolutely loved it! Between my kids and my nieces, we had ages 4, 8, 9, and 11 using it. And, I even tried it, too! I must say, we were amazed at how quickly all of the kids got the hang of paddling and maneuvering when they had a kayak and paddle their own size. We have sit-inside adult kayaks that they have tried in the past, but sitting down in t...
