Making Math Fun with Logic Roots Children's Games

Pin It

I have a confession to make, growing up I never really liked math. While I enjoyed geometry, I just wasn't a fan of the rest of it. Oddly enough, I loved science, which does actually incorporate math from time to time. Forget algebra and the more advanced stuff...eek! Luckily, I developed more of a liking to it back in my college years or at least I got better at. These days, math and I now have a more amicable relationship. My son is still young, so its difficult to say if he's inherited the same gene that made me detest math during my childhood years. Perhaps he'll be the opposite and become a total wiz at it!

Let's be honest, most of us can't do without math in our daily lives, so it's my goal to prepare him as much as possible. Flash cards and other fun, hands-on activities are always helpful. Since board games are a personal favorite here, I also thought it'd be beneficial to find some that could offer a little educational experience at the same time. Thanks to the folks at Logic Roots, we can now make that happen. Their entire line of math games add a new twist to the average family game night!

MunchPak: Fun Snacks from Around the World {Delivered Right to your Door}

Pin It

We are a bunch of foodies here in the Our Everyday Harvest household. My family and I especially enjoy a salty or sweet treat from time to time. What's even better is when we can try something new and also have it delivered right to our door. In the past, we've been blessed to try subscription boxes that highlight different states in the US, and others that deliver fabulous artisan treats. Recently, we've had a chance to give a new subscription box a try that is definitely worth talking about! 

It's called MunchPak, and what's really neat about this one is that each box contains an assortment of snacks from all around the world! So not only have we been enjoying goodies from the US, but from places like Japan, Mexico, Serbia, and even Romania! Plus, we didn't even have to leave our home to do so!

Pin It
There's always an uptick in travel throughout this time of year, especially with holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner. If you have children then you know all too well how important it is to be prepared, especially for long road trips. My son loves being in the car and gets a kick out of watching all of the other cars on the road. Of course, I always make sure to take along a few reinforcements to keep him occupied just in case he does get bored. Having a children's travel activity center, like this one from My Specialty Kids Shop, is a really great way to keep the kiddos entertained while on the go!

Express Yourself While Studying God's Word with the NIV Holy Bible for Girls, Journal Edition

Pin It

Lately, I've been getting the urge to get back into Bible journaling. It's actually been quite a while since I've done this. I used to keep a notebook with me when I read the Bible. Whenever a scripture grabbed my attention or I had a personal thought in reference to something I just read, I would jot it down in my notebook. I found that it also helped me with scripture memorization.

I was recently flipping through the notebook, and realized how long it had been since I added anything new to it. I finally decided that it's time to start back up. There's really no set of special guidelines when it comes to Bible journaling. As you can see, I used a simple notebook for my previous entries. Of course nowadays, there are many Bibles on the market that also include special sections for note-taking. I thought it would be nice to give one a try, so this new NIV Holy Bible for Girls, Journal Edition couldn't have come at a better time!

Keep Little Ones Cozy and Warm with a Mini Mumu Wearable Blanket + GIVEAWAY

Pin It

When it comes to relaxing or "sleepy time", my son is crazy about his blankets! While tucking him in, he always gets so excited as we go through the ol' snuggle up routine, which involves me bundling him up like a little burrito. Of course as the night goes on, those covers slowly drift down to the bottom of the bed. I'm always worried about him getting cold in the middle of the night, so I constantly check in on him, covering him back up. I really like sleep sacks, they're a great alternative to traditional blankets. We've been using them since my son was an infant, and I've even reviewed some of them right here on my blog.
