My recommendations this week:
I first stumbled upon these Bruder trucks in my quest to find NON-battery powered vehicles for our boys to play with. You know, ones that wouldn’t drive the mama crazy and that would be powered by imagination instead?! We’ve added several to our collection and they are made to last – still played with daily around here!
Sometimes I think I get even more excited about my kids’ upcoming gifts than they do! I can’t wait to give this to one of our little people on Christmas morning. If you have a science/nature lover or budding meteorologist in your neck of the woods this weather chart would be a fun choice.
Featured sponsor this week:
Still need a creative gift idea for one of the kids? How about The World’s Most Fascinating Rock Collection? I loved collecting rocks as a kid, and this is a beautiful way to discover & display them. One delivered to your home each month with plenty of info and activities included to learn more.
Katie’s homemade journals from Gadanke would make an inspirational addition under your tree this year. Her prompts help children (& adults!) avoid the fear of the blank page. Why not order a “mom & me journal” to complete together? Order by the end of Thursday for holiday shipping.
“I don’t believe in colleges and universities. I believe in libraries because most students don’t have any money. When I graduated from high school, it was during the Depression and we had no money. I couldn’t go to college, so I went to the library three days a week for 10 years.” ~ Ray Bradbury
