Gibbon Funline Slackline

Gibbon Funline Slackline

Ok, we bought this for Dad, for Father’s Day. Dad cannot balance on it yet, but the kids can. Everyone at the park thought the slackline was so cool. The local college students are all over it. My high schoolers feel like they have the latest, coolest gadget. And my little ones are learning to keep trying and not give up. The Gibbon Slackline has given us one more reason to be outside and physically active.

Little Annie’s Art Book of Etiquette & Good Manners

Little Annie's Art Book of Etiquette & Good Manners

Perfect for Young Children

I purchased Little Annie’s Art Book of Etiquette and Good Manners for our two little girls’ homeschooling curriculum this year… they absolutely fell in love with it from the very first day! “Little Annie” is so sweet and whimsical as she demonstrates manners, kindness, and proper etiquette, all while presenting Bible truths and teaching fun art lessons. The book seems mostly geared for girls, but our preschool age son enjoys the art projects as well. I love how these fun art lessons are laced with Scripture! This little lesson book covers everything from how to set a proper table to how to be a gracious friend. Highly recommended.

Thinking Putty: A GREAT Find!

Heat Sensitive Thinking Putty

I discovered Thinking Putty just a few weeks ago & ALL three of my kids (ages 10-18) LOVE it. My oldest son is 18 & uses it to keep his hands busy as he studies for College CLEP exams! My youngest son, 10, loves to play with it while I’m reading allowed. Who am I , kidding he JUST loves to play with it anytime! I just bought one to check it out, but he wants to spend his OWN money & buy his own! He has renamed it his “Study Putty.” :) I’m also planning to order a few more to use in our church Children’s Ministry. I think it will be great for those kids who just can’t sit still through a lesson! I’m SO glad I stumbled on Thinking Putty while browsing the Timberdoodle site & would definitely recommend purchasing it!

Manners Made Easy for the Family

Manners Made Easy for the Family

Impacting my 4 year old

Manners Made Easy for the Family has been just that for us.  We began when my youngest was only 4 years old and he has remembered amazingly well.  He is often the first to answer questions about previous lessons.  The fun roll playing exercises after some of the lessons may be a bit silly and giggly at first, but it gives the children the practice to solidify the manner in their memories.  The short lessons as well as the small 6 3/4″ x 4 1/2″ size make it ideal for the living room end table.  It is a fast pick up when you have a few minutes.  The topics cover a wide range of manners including church manners.  I highly recommend this book as a painless way to teach manners to the whole family.
