This will definitely be a keepsake for years to come!

A collection of six stories, featuring stories of fake Santas, stolen diamonds and a best-dressed Snowman competition.

100 full-color, tear-out sheets featuring stylish bird artwork – simply tear a page out and follow the simple folding instructions (featured on gatefolds at the front and back of the book) to create one of four different decorative origami birds that fly.

We also have 100 Paper Planes, 100 More Paper Planes, 200 Paper Planes (those 2 combined), 100 Dragons, and 100 Spaceships.

My husband couldn’t resist getting his hands on these paper birds! Check out the video and how simple and easy and fun they are! Which type (planes, dragons, spaceships, or birds) would your household enjoy?

Coding for Beginners Using Scratch (Video and Links)

My nephew will be 10 in August and absolutely LOVES these books! My brother (his dad) is a computer programmer so they have a lot of fun together. 🙂

An introduction to coding for complete beginners, this friendly and accessible book will teach children the basics of Scratch (a free, online program developed by MIT which is widely used in elementary schools), allowing them to get inside the code of their computer and create simple games and animations on screen.

We have another book like this using Python. Both are $14.99 each! Do you know someone that would have a blast with these?

Friends From Childhood

Growing up, I was really shy. And I loved reading. So books took the place of friends for awhile. And the girls in these 6 books were some of the best people to “hang out with”! I’ve read these books over and over through the years and each time I do, there’s a little something new I find out. Have you read any of these? What are you opinions on these books and the main characters?

Continue Learning in the Summer


Some of these statistics are surprising! Do you agree? How do you keep your kids minds busy during the summer months with no school? If you go adrift in the summer, sometimes it takes a while to get back in the swing of things once school starts back up!
