The school year has begun, and if you are anything like me you might feel like life is utter chaos.  Thankfully a perfect review  product arrived in the mail…the Busy Family Planning Calendar. It’s a great calendar to keep family planning organized and easy to utilize for all ages.  And I am thinking that along with being a super helpful tool at my house, the Busy  Family Planning Calendar could also be utilized in my preschool classroom!  I love the fact that this calendar helps the kids know what’s going on so I do not have to hear the constant questions about “how many more days until…..” OR “what are we doing tomorrow?”.  Now they can check for themselves!

Along with the Busy Family Planning Calendar we received two books, the Draw, Color & Sticker Creative Lettering Stickerbook and Brain Bend.  Both books are perfect for anyone…even people like me who are not very good at drawing.  I feel like they would provide children (or adults) with a creative outlet or way to “fidget” in between studies.  I plan to use both books with my kids when they are feeling stressed or fidgety during homework time.

These products can be found on Amazon!

The stunning, mind-bending designs, range in style from joyfully freeform to impressively structured, offer a stimulating visual challenge to maze and coloring enthusiasts. It also includes maze solutions at the back of the book. And the perforated pages make it easy to remove the designs, and high-quality, heavy, uncoated paper make them a pleasure to solve and color.
