Not So Wordless Wednesday: Move over Dancing With the Stars, it's time for your child to shine in the Curious George Dance Contest!

If like me, you enjoyed the first episode of this season's Dancing With The Stars this week, and have been running around the house dancing since, I'm sure your child has been watching and imitating you!

As many of you remember last year I became a 'Curious George Moms' Brand Ambassador and helped host a twitter party for the Curious George Mother's Day/Dia de Las Madres episode (you can read about that HERE if you missed it the first time) and as Curious George was so special to me as a child, and I enjoyed sharing his antics with my niece and my nephews I jumped at the chance to share his latest adventure with you all.

First of all my apologies, my goal was to get this post up yesterday for you guys so I could let you know about a twitter party that happened earlier today, but I didn't come out the hospital feeling well enough so yesterday was a completely internet free day for me as per doctors orders. (I probably shouldn't be on today either, but I won't tell if you won't!)

Our friends at Curious George are back to share a new fun campaign they are working on where your child has the chance to be the star! Curious George is hosting his first ever 'Curious George Dance Contest'. Send in a video of your child doing their best monkey moves along to the Curious George theme song for a chance to win!

CONTEST DATES: Video Submissions are due by April 2nd.

PUBLIC VOTING PERIOD: April 16th to April 30th.

WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT: For the name of winner, available after May 8 2012, visit

Four Great Reasons You and Your Child Should Spend Some Time Dancing Together:

1. Dancing Promotes Creativity - It encourages Self-Expression, done in early childhood it helps to develop creativity and creative problem solving will serve your child for life.

2. Dancing Strengthens Social and Emotional Development -  It helps a child express themselves and communicate with the world around them.

3. Active Learning - Children glean a greater understanding of spatial development via dance.

4. Dancing Promotes Fitness - The same Cardiovascular Endurance, Muscular Strength, and flexibility you gain from dance your child does too!

Does your child love Curious George? Does your child love to dance? Then grab your video camera and film your child dancing to the Curious George theme song for a chance to win. And if your child is already expressing hollywood aspirations, having their dance video featured on a Curious George DVD will help put them on their way that's for sure!

My nieces and nephews are too old to participate in the contest, but I just might get them to dance to it anyway and film them! (Hey our parents have dance videos of us, we should have some of the next generation too, to blackmail them with, ahem I mean reminisce with them about when they get older!)
