Welcome to South Shore Mamas!

We've got the scoop on what's going on around the South Shore to help keep your family entertained. Take a look around to find info on events, activities, discounts, crafts, recipes, and more!

Dunkin Donuts has gone over to the Dark Side, in a good way.  Let me introduce you to Rainforest Alliance Certified Dark Roast Coffee!  While I am mostly a tea drinker, with the occasional coffee thrown in, my husband needs at least two cups to start his day.  We were both excited to try Dunkin Dark Roast, and were not disappointed!  It’s a bold coffee, darker than Dunkin’s traditional brew, but not too strong.  It’ll kick start your day and get you going, even if you’re facing a trip to the mall, three days before Christmas, with a dozen names left to check off.  Wait, is that just me?

If you’re looking for a simple holiday project that you don’t need to run to the store and get a bagful of materials for, this is it.  Salt Dough Ornaments.  You will just need three simple ingredients – salt, flour and water.  Dig out your festive cookie cutters and some paint, and you’re ready to go!

I made these ornaments with my 10, 8 and 6 year old kids this week.  They had a blast, and did almost all of the work themselves!  {keep reading…}

Christmas is all about traditions for our family, and one of my very favorites is getting dressed up and heading into Boston to see The Nutcracker!  This weekend my daughter and I attended a performance courtesy of the Boston Ballet, and we’re giving one lucky reader a four pack of tickets to see it as well!

My kids have been working furiously for the past week on their letters to Santa.  They’ve made and remade them.  Stars were used to point out their top choices.  They added stickers and drawings.  They even made sure to include a few pleasantries along with their wish lists (How are you Santa?  I hope you have a great Christmas Santa!  Don’t forget to rest!), to really cement their position on the nice list.   Now they’re ready for his response.   There are a few ways to make this happen that are easy, cheap (all are free unless you opt for upgrades), and full of Christmas spirit.  {keep reading…}
