This post is brought to you by The New Santa Fe from Hyundai.
Our sponsor Hyundai asked my family and me to take a new 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe on an "Epic Fun Day." What that meant was entirely up to us. The first step was coming up with where we wanted to drive! We chose a beautiful beach near our home in Los Angeles where I knew we could pack lots of fun activities into a short time. Then we invited our pal and video maker Eric Mittleman along to document our day. Watch the video above for a glimpse of the fun! Here's what we did:
• Used our homemade kite aerial video rig to shoot some bird's-eye-view video.
• Hunted for sea glass, which we brought home and used to decorate polymer clay creations.
• Made a bubble wand out of sticks and strands of seaweed.
• Explored the cool caves and tidepool lifeforms on the beach.
Keep your eyes out for future posts where I'll share the details of our kite aerial video rig and our polymer clay creations, and tell you how to make them yourself!

You may not love Microsoft Word, but you’ve definitely used it. Other than being one of the most ubiquitous programs on the planet, it’s been the go-to word processing system for more than a quarter-century because it’s as basic as it gets. But occasionally, you’ve got assignments that beg for a lot more options than simple […]
Almost everyone has their smartphone in a case of one kind or another. Beyond simple protection, finding a case that can charge your phone on its own, but doesn’t feel like it’s also adding a couple pounds to the phone’s weight is the tricky part. Billed as the world’s thinnest battery case, the ThinCharge iPhone […]
