Check Out How @Nickelodeon DVDs is Helping Me Avoid Cries of "I'm Bored" During our Winter Break

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post written on behalf of Nickelodeon DVDs. I received the DVDs highlighted above in exchange for this post. No monetary compensation was received. The views expressed below are mine. Many thanks to Nickelodeon DVD and the PR firm for this opportunity.

The kids will be out of school for Winter break soon and I am already trying to find ways to ward off the inevitable cries of "I'm bored". I know it's coming.  I can't avoid it. 

It may Day 2, it may be Day 8, it could even be the day before they return to school but  sometime within the next two weeks one of my kids is going to utter those dreaded words.

I'm prepared though. The pantry is stocked with hot chocolate and plenty of snacks.  Pencils are sharpened.  Crayon box is filled with crayons and markers.  Printer is full of paper.  Weekly trips to library planned.  I'm ready!  I'm ready!  *in my SpongeBob voice*  Plus, the latest Nickelodeon's Winter DVD releases will keep the kids entertained and give me a much needed Winter break.

Nickelodeon DVD has something for everyone from the preschooler to the teens and tweens. 

For the little ones, we have Nickelodeon Favorites: A Very Nick Jr. Christmas and PAW Patrol: Pups Save Christmas.

6 episodes featuring •Blaze and the Monster Machines •Shimmer and Shine •Dora and Friends •Bubble Guppies and •Wallykazam!

6 fun episodes crammed into an hour of fun for the little ones with Ryder, Chase and Everest.

The older kids will enjoy a little action courtesy of TMNT - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in Mutant Ninja Turtles: Earth's Last Stand.  7 episodes of non-stop turtle power PLUS a free Raphael zipper pull AKA stocking stuffer for one of the kids.

I can't wait to surprise the kids with The Legend of Korra: The Complete Series.  ALL 52 episodes.  Woohoo!!! That's over 20 hours of air, earth, water and firebending fun!

No bored kids here.  We are ready.  Sled, board games, books and our favorite Nickelodeon DVDs.  Winter break boredom SOLVED!

What are some ways you keep the kids busy during Winter vacation?

I'm impressed with how prepared you are for winter break! I love that you have a variety of fun activities planned for your little ones. I don't think your kids will be bored at all.
Sounds like you have your winter break all planned and covered. I was never that organized with the kids. Have fun and sure everyone will enjoy.

These look like some fun DVDs for kids! I should probably prepare more for the winter break, but my kids are older, so if they say they're bored I remind them that they're old enough to entertain themselves.
Liz Mays said…
Oh these are such great choices for the indoor downtime. It's nice to have a few movies and series ready for the kids.

I'm a 90s kid so I grew up on Nickelodeon! They really did have some of the best cartoons around. These look like awesome DVDs for kids to watch during winter break.

I have so many Nickelodeon DVD's from my review days with them. The kids have a huge stock that I refuse to get rid of because they are cool to pull out and watch with them on a boring day!
We're pretty informal over the Christmas break. My nephew would enjoy watching Paw Patrol, he loves that show.
Sue Reddel said…
That's quite an interesting mix of movies. Movies are a great and easy way of keeping everyone entertained.
Great mix of DVDs to watch to keep them from being bored. Being inside and feeling bored can be hard to avoid sometimes, this seems like a great way to keep busy.

Legend of Korra is such a great show for older kids. And little kids always love Paw Patrol.
Ricci Ellis said…
Now this is my kind of winter break, all snuggled up under a blanket watching my favorite shows and movies! I love it!
Heather Jones said…
It's so funny that kids can be bored right after getting all those presents, but its true! Its happened to my family too and I'm sure I'll hear those words as well and I'll want to give them a good reality check!
We are day two into our break and I’ve already heard I’m bored 150 times. I can’t wait for Christmas for my kids to open gifts and have new things to occupy them for a bit. Including some Nickelodeon dvds! - jeanine

I will have to pic k up a few of these DVDs for the holidays. We are having a lot of company with kids and these will help keep them entertained.

Lucky me I have Home Alone volumes 1-3 and we will be watching these over winter break.
You amiga, are one ready lady!! Those are great selections and fit The Grands perfectly- all 6 of them! Thanks for the recommendation, will most definitely be looking them up. BB2U

We lucky my nephew rarely utters those words but we have some of these DVDs already but mostly we have an hour slot for him to watch whatever he wants
This is an awesome DVD collection! It does offer quality entertainment for every age group. Now I won't have any problems keeping my nephews and nieces entertained when they come over for a visit!

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
