    10+ of the Best Educational Gift Ideas for Toddlers

    This year is the first year in awhile where we’ve had a toddler to shop for. Because we had no idea we would be doing this toddler thing over again we had to pretty much start from scratch and I have to admit, it was fun looking through that section of toys again. Plus I feel like I have more knowledge on what toys kids actually play with and are also not annoying to adults. This is the last installment in my educational gift guide series, here’s the full series: + The Best Educational Gift Ideas for Toddlers (this list!) + The Best Educational Gift Ideas for Preschoolers + The Best Educational…

    10+ of the Best Educational Gifts for Middle School

    In case you noticed, I didn’t post a homeschool week in review for last week.

Today I am continuing on with the educational gift guide series, here’s the list of the posts in the series: + The Best Educational Gift Ideas for Toddlers + The Best Educational Gift Ideas for Preschoolers + The Best Educational Gift Ideas for Elementary + The Best Educational Gift Ideas for Middle School (this list!)…

    Welcome back to the second installment of my educational gift guide series! Today I wanted to share some of my favorite gift ideas for kids in elementary.

    10+ of the Best Educational Gift Ideas for Preschoolers

    With Christmas around the corner I’ve obviously been thinking a lot about gift ideas for the kids and one of my favorite kinds of gifts to give kids are ones that are fun but also educational.

The things on this list are things we either own and love or are really high on my to-buy-very-soon list.

    The Ultimate Educational Gift Guide for Kids

I had a lot of fun writing this list, I have a feeling there will be some more non-toy gift lists coming up in the near…
