Have you finished your back to school shopping yet?   Besides a shiny new pair of sneakers and a nice shirt for the first day, my kiddos didn’t get much in the way of new clothes yet.  They’ll be sporting this summer’s shorts and t-shirts for quite a while, so I haven’t put too much effort into stocking their drawers with pants and sweatshirts, but I know that day is coming soon.

If you’ve still got a shopping list to tackle for your kids, we’ve got great news!  The Westgate Mall is giving away a $250 shopping spree to one lucky South Shore Mamas reader!   Enter using the form below, gain more entries by following South Shore Mamas and the Westgate Mall, and by leaving a comment here on this post!

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the media preview day at Legoland Discovery Center Boston.  The official open date is Friday, May 23rd, but we’re giving you a sneak peek here on South Shore Mamas.  There is SO much to see, but we won’t show you too much and spoil the surprise of finding out all the fun little details yourself.

Legoland Discover Center is a 44,000 square foot indoor attraction geared towards kids ages 3 to 10.  The center features two Lego rides, a 4D cinema, Miniland, multiple building areas, a play zone, a model builder academy, party rooms, and more.

The center is part of the new construction happening at Assembly Row in Somerville.   32 outlet stores, restaurants and attractions will begin opening in May, including J.Crew, LOFT Outlet, Converse, Brooks Brothers and Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5th, with more stores to follow this summer and in the fall.

Spring may be slow in coming, but the spring consignment event season is definitely here!  If you are new to consignment sales/events, they are worth checking out, and are a great opportunity to save big on new-to-you clothing and gear.  These sales happen each spring and fall, and offer a huge selection of gently used items, all in one place, organized for optimal shopping.  Shop early for the best selection, and snag a presale pass if you can to beat the crowds.  (These are usually offered to consignors or volunteers at the sale, or you can win a pair from your favorite local blog, wink wink).
