The new All About Me Family Counters from Learning Resources are adorable!

Learning Resources Family Counters

I was so excited to get these to review, and my excitement spread to my kids too, especially Ladybug and PacMan!

Learning Resources Family Counters

This set of 72 colorful counters features a variety of family members, including a kitty!  My kids wished there was a dog to complete our family too, but pretended one of the cats was a dog when they made us!

The bigger counters will hold the babies, look how cute…Learning Resources Family Counters

We have played with these numerous times, both to practice skills {patterning below-Pac was teaching Ladybug} and just for fun.  Ladybug played for about an hour straight with the counters one day, she loves them!

Learning Resources Family Counters

These are a perfect companion to reinforce and expose early math skills like colors, counting, patterning, and sorting.  I love that they are different colors and sizes, as the counting bears we have always used are all the same size.  Being able to add the size attribute is awesome!  If you are an early childhood teacher or have little ones at home, this would be a wonderful educational toy to add to your collection!

You can purchase these on Amazon here, and also directly on the Learning Resources website.

Learning Resources has a fun contest going on, read more here: http://www.learningresources.com/familycounters!

Learning Resources Handy Scoopers

Learning Resources

We have a fun review and giveaway for you today, for the awesome Handy Scoopers from Learning Resources!prod4963_4_lg

I was really excited to receive these new Handy Scoopers, honestly wondering if they would be sturdy enough to survive Ladybug and Krash!  Thankfully they are and my kids LOVE them! We have played games with them, used them in sensory bins, and even as instruments!

Here we used our Froggy Feeding Fun game pieces to scoop and play a game. You can see the game we played here!

Using the scoops in the rice bin was a BIG favorite! This is Krash burying the toy cow!Home Preschool Letter C -8688

The Handy Scoopers are an excellent fine motor tool and wonderful for sensory bins. I wish I would have had these a year ago, when we did even more fine motor work!  I highly recommend these!  You can purchase Handy Scoopers on Amazon here, and also directly on the Learning Resources website.

We will be reviewing the Family Counters next month and Learning Resources has a fun contest going on, read more here: http://www.learningresources.com/familycounters!

Modesty is Beautiful!

Mothering-ad-square

In my personal ministry life outside of my homeschooling blog, one of my passions is discipling preteen girls. One of the areas I focus on is modesty and what the Bible has to say about this topic. When Caroline from The Modest Mom signed on to be a blog supporter, I was thrilled!  Not only did I get to receive a few products for review from both Deborah & Co. and Lilla Rose, I get to share a giveaway with you all!

Deborah & Co. sells a wide variety of items and many of their skirts are custom sewn, the customer gets to pick the fabric and length. They also offer women’s, maternity and girl skirts, along with modest cami’s and nursing tanks.

Ruched_Women__15747.1351008843.1280.1280  maternity_ruffle__78030.1351009700.1280.1280

The halftees and cropped layering shells are excellent for pregnant and maternity seasons, and for any women just not wanting the extra bulk while needing a higher cut cami for a lower cut shirt.

We were blessed to be able to review 2 items from Deborah & Co. First, I was gifted with a pair of fleece lined brown leggings and I am in LOVE!  Seriously they feel like pajamas, I highly recommend them.  They come in brown and black, I just might order myself the black pair too.

We also got a custom made skirt for Ladybug, look how cute…

Deborah & Co.-8565  Deborah & Co.-8571

We chose the Girl’s Ruffle Skirt {below knee length} It has an elastic waist band which is a must for my girl’s belly, and also makes it little kid friendly, to aid in self dressing. I can’t wait until it is warm enough for her to wear it outside!

Caroline also sells Lilla Rose and I was sent a flexi clip, which works on both my hair and Ladybug’s!

Deborah & Co.-8602

The flexi clips come in seven different sizes, and that they work in baby fine hair to super thick long hair. Straight or curly hair types. A sizing and styling video can be found here: http://www.lillarose.biz/simplybeautiful/flexi-sizing-and-styling.html

I love my clip and got mine sized to wear in a half-up style.  I struggled at first getting it in, but after a few days it was easy,  I love it! Ladybug also loves it, of course!  Here it is in her hair…Deborah & Co.-8616

One blessed winner will receive ~

$25 gift certificate to Deborah & Co.

$16 gift certificate to Lilla Rose
