Things I have Found

So, I know I have not posted anything in a while. I am working on getting some units together, but I wanted to share some contests I have found that have prizes I think would be great for homeschoolers.

Frugal Mommy of 2 Girls has 2 giveaways I thought you would like. The first is a set of silicone letter trays from the Spoon Sisters. These trays allow you to freeze, cook, or refrigerate in them, creating letters out of ice, Jell-O or cookies. The other giveaway at Frugal Mommy of 2 Girls is for 1 3-month subscription to Little Passports. This is a program where each month your child receives a package in the mail from "Sam" and "Sofia". Sam and Sofia travel around the world and each month they include a letter telling about where they are, some "souvenirs" from that country and a password to get online and play some games and activities. You can see some sample packages on their website.

Over at The Giveaway blog, they have a 69-piece Crazy Fort from Crazy Forts. This is like a giant Tinkertoy set of 25 solid, plastic balls and 44 sticks that the kids put together and then put blankets/sheets over to create a custom fort.

Centsable Momma has the 4th of 4 Crayola Creativity Packs that she is giving away. The pack includes markers, colored pencils, crayons and all sorts of Crayola goodies that homeschoolers love.

Bellaziza's favorite things is giving away a Springfree Trampoline. I am not a trampoline person as I feel they are so dangerous, but this one has eliminated many of the dangers of traditional trampolines. Watch the video on the company's website and you can see for yourself.

There are so many more giveaways out there in Blogland and because this is "Back to school" season, many have school-related prizes. Entering blog giveaways are great because you have much greater chances of winning. I have been blessed to win several blog giveaways in the past year and every time a prize arrives, it is exhilarating for me and the kids. I hope you will enter these ones and if you win, please leave a comment.
