Welcome to another back-to-homeschool giveaway–sponsored by Pin It! Maps.

From Sara of Pin It! Maps:


“Excite your children with hands-on geography fun!

Pin It! Maps are large Montessori pin maps on foam board with colorful name and national flags. The complete student set includes 8 pin maps, 30 control maps, and 1,147 flags.

Each continent has four control maps that are labeled with one topic: country names, cities, national flags and land & water forms.

In the past they have been limited to Montessori schools because of their high cost, but this is an affordable set for homeschoolers! Children will have fun pinning 196 National flags – every country in the world.


But they won’t stop there!  They will pin the names of countries, cities, oceans, rivers, and mountains.


These maps can be used for all ages. Children can start with the seven continent flags and work their way towards pinning 331 cities around the world. This set even includes name flags for four waterfalls and 23 volcanoes!”

Giveaway: Kindle Fire HD7
Written by Jamie Martin of Simple Homeschool and Steady Mom

This giveaway has ended; thanks for your interest!

I have a love-love relationship with my Kindle. I wasn’t sure about non-paper reading a couple of years ago when I ordered it initially, but since then I’ve become a total convert.

Not that I’ve turned my back on paper books altogether, mind you. But I love that I can take my Kindle when I go work at the library or a coffee shop and have more than 100 books right in my bag, all as light as a single paperback!

Kindles have become one of my favorite gifts as well–I gave one to my daughter Trishna for Christmas a while ago and I recently gave one to Steve just because.
