Last Minute Stocking Stuffer

Looking for a last minute stocking stuffer?  Here is a great idea, extended bedtime passes!  In my house Princess A is always asking to stay up past her bedtime, especially since her older siblings have a later bedtime than she does.  These passes allow her a few minutes extra, and are a quick and easy gift to add to her stocking.  


Feel free to use mine and print your own as well.   You can download the free PDF here.  Merry Christmas!

50 States and Charlotte Mason


The "Build Your Bundle" - Homeschool Edition sale is going on for one week only (July 21-28)! There are so many wonderful products and amazing deals!

Today I want to share with you one of the awesome resources included in the Charlotte Mason Bundle that we will be using this year, 50 States and Where to Find Them from Barefoot Meandering.

I wanted to include a states study in Princess's education and we even began a few states last year, beginning with our own and moving out to a few neighboring states.  I don't know if you have ever attempted to gather age appropriate resources on your own before, but let me tell you it can be a headache!  I could picture what I wanted but had to spend forever to find it and then I had to compile and organize it all.  Imagine all of that multiplied by 50!!!

Then I came across this, the 50 States and Where to Find Them.  It is perfect!  States are divided by region, which allows you to pick the region you live in and focus there first.  Each state includes not only a map of the state, but a map of where it is in the region AND a map of where it is in the US allowing your child to get the complete view.  


The teaching edition includes geography terms, suggesting reading books, interesting facts and various activites for each state.  And then you get the student book, which contains maps for your child to color, outline, and label.  Also included are state flags, birds, and plants making this a complete overview for each state and a great way to gently introduce your child to them.  I especially like that a large portion of the information is connected to living books.

And this is just ONE of the awesome items included in the Charlotte Mason Bundle.  Check out the rest:
