I hope you’ve enjoyed Home for the Holidays as much as I have. It’s been fun introducing you to some amazing companies and products and choosing the winners (at random, of course) feels a bit like playing Santa!
If you see your name on the winner list below, look for an email from me later today. Reply quickly and our vendors will get your prize to you before the holidays!
So without further adieu, I present the five Simple Homeschool giveaway winners:
Winner: Glennen, who said, “I think the plates would be a favorite around here. My three year old is obsessed with anything that has his name or initials on it!”
Winner: Danielle, who said, “I’ve got 3 year old twin budding artists. They love to finger paint, draw with markers, and play with stickers. What a fabulous giveaway!”
Winner: Leah, who said, “I definitely have to work to bring creativity into our homeschooling. I love coming up with ideas (either my own or someone else’s that help make our days more fun/interesting/challenging. This is our first year homeschooling. I have a 9 ,7, and 4 year old. This curriculum would be awesome for my 4 year old!”
Winner: Jennifer Jo, who said, “My favorite artwork is a picture I did in high school..”
Winner: DeAnn O., who said, “My dad made my kids some wooden blocks from some wood he had on hand, stained them with green and dk. burgundy stain he had in his leather shop and a few were left natural color, and even branded a couple of them with his cattle brand (they are big, chunky blocks)! My kids have liked stacking them and knocking them down, of course, but these blocks have also inspired some great conversations about Grandpa “Pal” and his life. I love them because my big, kinda rough, cowboy daddy took the time to make something so special and so not his usual kind of thing for my little ones. They are a treasure.”
Congratulations, winners! I hope this surprise puts a lovely smile on your face this holiday season.
