Thank Yous and a Giveaway


The Harris Family is the lucky winner of this giveaway!

As many of you know, my passion is writing curriculum and creating fun printables for preschoolers. Therefore, I consider it a true blessing to have gotten to know so many creative, inspiring women who share this passion. I would like to acknowledge a few of the MANY women who have inspired me to continue pursuing my passion. Thank you, ladies! It is a pleasure to know you.

Amy from Teach Mama
Jolanthe from Homeschool Creations
Carissa from 1+1+1=1 and Totally Tots
Jodi from This Handmade Life
Susana from My Family, My Forever
Shannon from Mommies Wise Little Bookworms
Felicia from My Family Life
Karen from Prekinders

I recently met another inspiring woman. Her name is Ashley and she owns an Etsy shop named Me and Marie ~ Learning Aids for Little Ones. Ashley is a former early childhood teacher who, after having her own child, has decided to work from home creating early childhood learning packs, pretend play packs, file folder games, and more. Ashley sent me her latest learning pack, 12 Days of Christmas, to review. I have to say that I am completely impressed. Her ideas are new and creative. The graphics are clear and crisp and completely adorable. Perfect for little ones!


The 12 Days of Christmas is the perfect way to get your kiddos in the holiday spirit. Each of the twelve days includes a lesson plan (short and simple), a song, a hands-on activity or craft, and a clue hunt. The clue hunt has your little detective on the look out for clues that Santa and his helpers have already visited your house (to see if your little ones have been naughty or nice). I love this idea and can't wait to try it out with Wes. This is the first year that he has been interested in Santa, so I know he will love it!

For this giveaway, Ashley is offering one lucky winner the 12 Days of Christmas learning pack. It will be sent to you as a download link in an email, so be sure to include a working email in your entries.
