We like to start our homeschool day off by using a little bit more energy, stretching and relaxing with some yoga. My girls started trying yoga when they saw me doing it one day and really enjoyed it. Bonus for them that they see some of the stretches from gymnastics in the yoga. But the KidsYoga Child Starter Bundle is the perfect gift to get them their ow gear.
Stocking stuffers can be the easiest things for me to buy. I slip a little something into each shopping trip, keeping track of what I buy of course. This year, Crayola has provided some great stuffers, keeping our kids creative minds going.
This Christmas, let’s give our kids some new twist on old classics, as well as a way to get more creative with their tablets, with Crayola. I’ve been a fan of Crayola products since I was a child. It’s the only brand I remember my mom buying me, and it’s the only brand that I buy for my children. I trust them wholeheartedly, and love the new products they have out as well as their classic crayons and markers, as well as their paints.
The first thing we ripped into was the Crayon Carver:
Can you believe that there is just over a month left until Christmas? I can honestly say, I am done shopping. Hubby still has two things to pick up this week when he goes into the city for a meeting and then I have to start wrapping. Though I tend to put that off until the last week that I possibly can. I love the shopping and buying for people, hate the wrapping.
How do I get so much shopping done so early? I do my Christmas shopping all year long! It adds a couple extra bucks to my grocery bill to throw in an extra bottle of bubble bath for one of my girls, or a pack of *crayons. It doesn’t add much, but come December, you have a lot, if not all, of your stocking stuffers.
*If you are going to do that… the above… keep track or you’ll end up with doubles or triples!*

After packing up our house to move (again) I got to see just how many toys my kids have. And how many of those toys don’t get played with anymore. Wow, there were a lot of toys. Now I have just learned a few new things, like:
Did you know that on average families spend $1000 a year, per child, on toys?
