Web Coolness: Holiday Gift Guide, swim-noodle menorah, and a Museum of Math

Here are some of our favorite links from around the web this week. We hope you like them too.


Pool Noodle Menorah

Have you seen the Cool Mom Picks Holiday Gift Guide yet? It’s jam-packed with greatness for everyone on your list. And we’re especially excited that you could win two amazing giveaways: one to keep and one to share!

The super-clever swim-noodle menorah from Bible Belt Balabusta is a clever way to teach kids about the symbolism and ritual of the menorah, without setting anything on fire. (via Apartment Therapy)

Join CMP favorite Dan Zanes and Friends at 11am on December 8th for the Second Annual Holiday Sing-A-Long at City Winery in NYC. Ticket info here.


Do gender-neutral gifts still elude parents? is provoking interesting discussion as we get ready to shop this holiday season. 

Always wanted to be in pictures? Support this Kickstarter campaign for a new superhero comic series, and you could find yourself in the comic itself! Fun!


We can’t wait to take a field trip to the Museum of Math in Manhattan…open on December 15! 

Yikes! You won’t believe what this mama fantasizes about when she has some spare time. 

Awwww, we are so happy to hear that one of our readers was able to get help for Dolly from the wonderful duo at NYC Lovey Repair


Pinterest board of the week: Seeing all the gorgeous and festive decorated gingerbread–or “piparkakut” in Finnish–really gets us into the holiday spirit.
