Amy Grant Tennessee Christmas CD Review and Giveaway #TennesseeChristmas #FlyBy


Amy Grant is one of the most well known and cherished songwriters in Christian music. Tennessee Christmas is her first all new Christmas album in nearly 20 years. This album features an updated recording of the Amy Grant Christmas standard, Tennessee Christmas, 6 new songs and the traditional Christmas favorites: Baby, It's Cold Outside, O Come All Ye Faithful, & Joy To The World. This album wasn't recorded in a big music studio. Instead it was recorded in Amy's Nashville Tennessee home. Her husband and country singer, Vince Gill, sings with her in Baby, It’s Cold Outside. This brand new album shares Amy's classic vocals with a more intimate, mellow feel. Some of the songs are also mixed with personal stories and Amy's memories from the holidays. The liner notes inside the CD case have some fun family photos and each songs lyrics as well.

I have been to Tennessee, but only briefly. I know they have some gorgeous scenery and beautiful Smoky Mountains. It is also the birthplace of country music and where Elvis grew up. I pray now for the people in Gatlinburg, Tennessee where wildfires are burning homes, businesses and parts of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I hope that those affected can stay positive through this trial. I also hope these people stay safe and even in the midst of heartache and loss can rebuild when the fires are finally put out. Let's all pray for them.

This album is a lovely medley of Christmas music. Amy has personalized the music with her thoughts, and to some, like me, it sounds like a cheesy Christmas card. It feels a little too sentimental and a bit sappy for my taste, but that is just me. I know she meant well, but these thoughts would have been better in the liner notes. I do love the songs and the feel to this new CD of Amy Grant's, however; I also wish there were more songs about the Savior's birth. My favorite songs on this Album are To Be Together, Tennessee Christmas, and Joy To The World.

Track Listing:
  1. Tennessee Christmas (4:27)
  2. To Be Together (4:10)
  3. Christmas For You And Me (3:03)
  4. Melancholy Christmas (3:02)
  5. December (3:29)
  6. White Christmas (2:23)
  7. Joy To The World (3:08)
  8. I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm (3:24)
  9. Baby, It’s Cold Outside [feat. Vince Gill] (3:14)
  10. Christmas Don’t Be Late (3:16)
  11. Still Can’t Sleep (3:11)
  12. Another Merry Christmas (2:22)
  13. O Come, All Ye Faithful (3:07)
Album length: 13 tracks: 42 minutes, 16 seconds

    #LIGHTtheWORLD In 25 Ways Over 25 Days Advent Calendar



    “During Christmas, we are reminded that Jesus Christ is the light of the world. This year, we have an amazing opportunity to share that light by resolving to do the things Jesus Christ did. Every day leading up to Christmas, we will focus on a different Christ-like behavior and provide suggestions for ways we can emulate His example....” mormon.org




    The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter Day Saints has provided each of us a way to #LIGHTtheWORLD from December 1st through Christmas Day. The Worldwide Day of Service is on December 1st and kicks off this Advent Calendar. For the Worldwide Day of Service people were given the opportunity to "serve anyone you want, any way you want" and "find a way to serve others as Jesus did". Just like this Christ-like day, each day following in the advent calendar has a theme and follows with suggestions of different ways you can get involved with small, but meaningful acts of service.

    “When people think of Christmas, they often think of lights,” said Bruce Muir, director of emergency response for the Church. “Christmas lights, lighted store windows, tree lights. Christ taught ‘Ye are the light of the world,” and we hope that through small and simple acts of service, we can spread the light of Christ—helping others to feel the love of the Savior through genuine kindness.”

    This Advent Calendar helps us get into the Christmas spirit and follow Christ's example this holiday season as we go about our busy daily lives. Just one act of kindness each day can make someones day or brighten their future. You can also see each video that goes with the theme as it posts each day. Videos and printables, including the advent calendar, are available in multiple languages so people from all over the globe can participate. Go download the advent calendar today!

    Learning Resources STEM Code & Go Robot Mouse Activity Set Review #learningresources



    Learning Resources STEM Code & Go Robot Mouse Activity Set is a fun toy that teaches sequencing, coding, and programming. This toy challenges players to sharpen their analytical thinking, critical thinking, logical thinking, and problem solving skills. For ages 5 and up and grades Kindergarten and up.

    STEM
    • Science: exploring the science of coding and programming with hands-on activities!
    • Technology: building and using tools for amazing discoveries!
    • Engineering: designing solutions for real-world problems!
    • Math: measuring, recording, and comparing data to draw conclusions!

    83 Piece Set Includes:
    • 1 Robot mouse named Colby: has a switch on the bottom with 3 positions (off and two speeds: normal to use on plastic maze base grid pieces and hyper for use on carpet and other more uneven surfaces). Colorful buttons on top make him do things in the order they are pressed and are: forward (blue arrow that points towards his nose, makes him move forward 5"), rotate right (purple arrow that points right when he is facing away from you, makes Colby rotate right 90 degrees), reverse (yellow arrow that points towards his tail end, makes him move backward 5"), rotate left (orange arrow that points left when he is facing away from you, makes Colby rotate left 90 degrees), action (red circle that makes him either: move forward and back, squeak loudly, or chirp 3 times with lit up eyes), clear (yellow circle clears all coding if you make a mistake or want to do another sequence, has confirmation tone), go (green circle that is the last command to be pressed when the sequence (up to 40 steps) is completed and Colby is set down on the maze). Takes 3 AAA batteries, not included.
    • 16 Plastic maze base grid pieces: connect together to form a larger board or any configuration that goes together.
    • 22 Plastic maze walls: to be placed around the grids in the crevices so that the mouse can go through the maze to get to the cheese.
    • 3 Plastic tunnels: can be placed on the grid or surface for the mouse to go under and through.
    • 1 Plastic cheese wedge: to be placed at the end of the maze for the mouse to find. This is magnetic and sticks to the mouses nose when touched by it.
    • 30 Double-sided coding cards: have one side with just the arrow and the other side with the mouse and the arrow. These help you plot and track the mouse's path and order in which the code needs to be pressed on Colby for him to get to the cheese in the maze.
    • 10 Double-sided activity cards: help you build the mazes from pictures on the cards. These are made in order of difficulty, 1 being the easiest and 20 being the hardest.
    • 1 Multilingual activity guide: is instructions and directions for how to play.

    How To Play:
    1. Pick an activity card with one of the challenge mazes.
    2. Build your maze from the picture on the card or just build your own: by connecting the maze grid pieces together and adding the walls, tunnels, and cheese.
    3. Use either side of the coding cards to create a step-by-step path for Colby to find the cheese.
    4. Program the sequence of steps with the buttons on the mouse.
    5. Set Colby down where he is suppose to start in the maze, press go, and watch Colby race to find the cheese.

    Teela and Zari playing with the Code & Go Robot Mouse Activity Set.

    What We Thought:
    My daughters who are 6 and 8 tried out the Code & Go Robot Mouse Activity Set. This is a neat toy. It teaches some very important skills and I love that it is educational and that my girls enjoyed it so much. We love bringing this toy out for when we need a break from book work during homeschooling. The girls liked making their own mazes and figuring out what code to program into Colby, the mouse. They also thought that it was funny that the mouse made little sounds occasionally and loved that you could program an action into it to make the mouse do random things. Someday we'd love to get the purple mouse, Jack, that is sold separately, so we can have even more fun with this set and race the two!

    The Code & Go Robot Mouse Activity Set is fun and educational! I recommend it to people that love games, puzzles, and educational toys! This is also a great addition to any homeschool environment. It is a great family centered toy and wonderful to teach and improve STEM and mental skills.

    Bible Journaling Kit Review and Giveaway #BibleJournalingKit #FlyBy



    This Bible Journaling Kit from Ellie Claire, a division of Worthy Publishing Group is a great way to personalize the pages of your Bible or Book of Mormon. You can mark your favorite passages, doodle pictures to help you remember scriptures in the margins, or jot your thoughts down as they come to you in fun scrolling fonts as you study the Word of God. Be an artist and draw, color, or journal feelings and special moments with the colored pencils and pen that comes in this kit. Highlight your favorite verses with the stickers and colored pencils. Make your favorite Bible or Book of Mormon all your own and a treasure for generations to read and ponder its pages.

    Kit includes:
    • 4 sheets of inspirational word stickers
    • 4 sheets of alphabet stickers
    • 24 tab stickers to mark special passages: some say things like pray, faith, wow!, grace, promise, fear not, beautiful, love is, favorite, blessing, believe and others are blank so you can write your own.
    • 8 colored pencil twists to advance and never need sharpening
    • 1 archival quality journaling pen
    • 1 NIV Philippians 4:8 "Whatever Is Lovely" inspired pouch with adjustable strap to fit Bibles of all sizes
    • 1 ruled page protector mat with die cut edge for tracing lines

    How We Used This and Our Thoughts:

    This Bible Journaling Kit has been fun to experiment with. I love how it comes with colored pencils instead of markers or colored pens that might bleed through the delicate pages. This kit is a great way to start journaling. I love the verse on the pouch that comes with it as well which reads, "Whatever is lovely...think about such things.". This is not the whole verse, but is a shortened version. The stickers are a very nice addition too and make the verses stand out more. This pouch has an adjustable strap that can go around a Bible or Book of Mormon. The pouch can hold all of the journaling supplies except the page protector mat. I love that those supplies fit neatly inside my scripture case inside the pouch so that I have everything I need at my fingertips. This kit would be a great gift for someone!

    The Radical Book for Kids: Exploring the Roots and Shoots of Faith Book Review


    I received The Radical Book for Kids free to facilitate this review. Affiliate links may be in this posting. Thanks for supporting my blog.

    The Radical Book for Kids: Exploring the Roots and Shoots of Faith is an invaluable guide to the Bible, history of the Christian church, and life for boys and girls age 8 and up. It is illustrated throughout its pages and filled with interesting facts and ideas. It unfolds deep truths and answers questions that elementary and middle-school aged kids need to know and understand. It will help edify the young readers' faith in Christianity and stimulate their natural curiosity for the truth within a gospel-centered foundation.

    The Radical Book for Kids will take children on a fascinating journey to learn about: the ancient roots of the Christian faith, people who had faith in Jesus and how/why they stood for Him even in turbulent times, ancient weapons (and how to make one), jewels, pottery (and  how to create your own), secret codes, stars, telling time using the sun, tying knots, ancient recipes (and how to make them), a board game that's 3,000 years old (and how to play it), and so much more! So many great things to learn, read about, do and explore! With a wide spectrum of important topics, this book is sure to engage the child.

    The author, Champ Thornton is an associate pastor at Ogletown Baptist Church in Delaware. Champ is also the author of "God's Love: A Bible Storybook," and of Bible curriculum for early and upper elementary-aged children. He has been happily married since 1996 to his wife, Robben, and they have three children.

    I love that you can skip around or read straight through and the table of contents and index help you find things. This book has 67 chapters, but each chapter is only 2-5 pages so they don't take too long to read. We love exploring the pages of this book and can't wait to do some of the hand-on projects too! We love to get this out for Bible study during our homeschooling. Such a great resource for kids....and adults alike!

    Thanksgiving: The Holiday At The Heart Of The American Experience Book Review


    Thanksgiving: The Holiday At The Heart Of The American Experience by Melanie Kirkpatrick is a wonderful book to read and cherish for Thanksgiving. Simple, yet elegant, illustrations grace the pages of this informative book. It is a compilation of religion, history, hospitality, economics, philanthropy, culture, food, traditions, and politics that surround this beloved holiday. Within its passages it holds timeless tales of how Thanksgiving came to be: from the Puritans and Wampanoag Indians and their feast together to how Thanksgiving became the holiday as it is today. It delves into four centuries of history to paint a more complete picture of our nation's celebration of family, friends, food, fellowship, gratitude, and faith than that you may have learned from school. Besides the history, it also includes Readings For Thanksgiving Day, which are excerpts from famous people like: Mark Twain, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Ben Franklin, William Bradford, Edward Winslow, Abigail Adams, Louisa May Alcott, Laura Ingalls Wilder, etc. and yummy Thanksgiving Recipes and Bills of Fare from households, cookbooks, and media passed down through the ages.

    The Thanksgiving holiday has always been a time of joy, celebration, and gratitude in my home. We thank God for the blessings and bounty He has bestowed on our family and friends. The greatness of the delicious food and drink on the table and multitude of family and friends that will surround us on this Thanksgiving Day are only a few things that I am thankful for. I am also so very grateful to live in a country where religious freedom is practiced and allowed and am glad that I am alive on this gorgeous planet.

    Thanksgiving: The Holiday At The Heart Of The American Experience is a comprehensive resource for understanding and coming to know the Thanksgiving holiday better. I highly recommend it for gift giving around the holiday. It would also be wonderful to share with your host or hostess this Thanksgiving or next. It is a great companion for a homeschool study on the holiday too.

    Where Jesus Slept Book Review and Giveaway #WhereJesusSlept #FlyBy


    I received Where Jesus Slept free to facilitate this review. Affiliate links may be in this posting. Thanks for supporting my blog.

    Where Jesus Slept is written by Norma Lewis and illustrated by Katy Hudson. This jacketed hardcover book is filled with delightful watercolor pictures to accompany a story that starts with one line of words and builds from there. It starts out with the manger bed that Jesus slept in, then straw, a cow, and so on until the end where the Wise Men give their gifts to Jesus. Each spread adds a new element to the story. On the last page is a picture of swaddled baby Jesus sleeping peacefully and the scripture John 3:16 (NIV): "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.". The book is geared towards ages 3-7.

    My daughter Zari enjoying the Where Jesus Slept book.

    This sweet book of the Savior's birth reminded me of the song, 'The Green Grass Grows All Around' and the story, 'There Was An Old Lady That Swallowed A Fly' because of how the story builds upon itself. The repetition of the rhyme is great for young children. The gorgeous watercolor art shows the nativity in a lovely light. My daughter Teela loves reading this to Zari and Zari loves looking at the childlike illustrations. We love this Christmas treasure.

    The 101 Series Biology 101 Review



    My family had the privilege of trying Biology 101 of The 101 Series from Westfield Studios for this review to use in conjunction with our own homeschool curriculum. This is a Homeschool Review Crew Review. All opinions expressed are my own or those of my family.

    Westfield Studios was founded in 2004 by Wes and Tammy Olson for their two oldest boys. In 2003 Tammy was looking for a Biology curriculum for her homeschool that fit her needs and could not find it. Wes decided that since he had 15 years of corporate film production experience and a natural love of science he would produce it for his wife. Thus Westfield Studios was born and now it has three science productions: Biology 101, Physics 101, and Chemistry 101, with a forth, General Science, possibly coming in 2017. Before production these films were also reviewed by experts in the fields of biology, physics, and chemistry so they are scientifically accurate.



    Biology 101 is a full Christian biology high school course designed specifically for ages 15 and up for homeschoolers. It comes as a set of 4 DVDs and Biblically teaches biology following the book of Genesis and the creation days. There are nine individual segments and a guidebook that you can print out to accompany the film. The combined running time is 4 hours and 37 minutes.

     

    Contents:

    Disc 1
    • Introduction: Defining Life and Life Classification (15 min.): Classification and Taxonomy.
    • 3rd Day - Plants (37 min.): Vascular Plants - Plant Parts (flowers with fruit and seeds, leaves, stems, roots), Grasses, Annuals & Perennials, Trees. Nonvascular Plants - Moss & Liverworts, Algae, Fungi, and Lichen.
    Disc 2
    • 5th Day - Aquatic Creatures (40 min.): Vertebrates - Osteichthyes (bony fish), Chondrichthyes cartilage fish), Agnatha (jawless fish), Aquatic Mammals (nursing), Aquatic Reptiles (creeping). Invertebrates - Mollusk (soft body), Arthropod (joint foot), Protozoa, Worms, Cnidarian (stinging), Porifera (with pores), Echinoderm (prickly skin), Extinct Aquatics.
    • 5th Day - Avian Creatures (44 min.): Flying Vertebrates - Birds. Flying Invertebrates - Insects.
     Disc 3
    • 6th Day - Land Animals Part 1 (22 min.): Vertebrates - Warmblooded (Cattle & Beasts), Coldblooded (Creeping Things) - Reptiles & Amphibians.
    • 6th Day - Land Animals Part 2 (28 min.): Invertebrates - Land Arthropods, Land Mollusks, Land Worms, Bacteria & Viruses.
    • 6th Day - Mankind Part 1 (27 min.): Anatomy & Physiology - The Brain, The Five Senses, Skeletal System, Muscular System.
    • 6th Day - Mankind Part 2 (24 min.): Anatomy & Physiology Continuation - Circulatory System, Digestive System, Lymphatic System, Endocrine System, Human Development.
    Disc 4
    • Genetics: A Brief History of Biology, Cells and Genetics (40 min.)
    • Guidebook and Accreditation Booklet (PDF): accompanied by a printable 114 page fact-filled guidebook that also includes multiple choice quizzes and discussion questions to review all the information covered in the film. This also has labs/activities and field trip recommendations. A 12-page “Course Accreditation Program” booklet is included for those families who want a year-long biology course.

    SOME OF THE THINGS WE LEARNED SO FAR...
    • Vascular plants have tubes that are a lot like trachea (windpipe) that take in nutrients and water.
    • An easy way to remember the male and female part of a flower is to look at the ending: stamen is male and stigma is female.
    • Algae played a roll in the making of dynamite.
    • Grasses are essential for our survival.
    • Trees are the oldest living things on the planet. The oldest living one is 4500 years old.
    • The scales of fish have ring segments providing a record of their age similar to tree rings.
    • Seahorses are classified as bony fish even though they do not look anything like a fish.
    • California flying fish can glide up to 500 feet!
    • Sharks use and loose as many as 2000 teeth every year!
    • The word walrus means horse whale.

    How We Used This and Our Thoughts:
    Since The 101 Series is appropriate for the entire family we had everyone in the family watch the Biology 101 course. We had not had a taste of this series before, so this was new to us. My 16 year old did the questions in the guidebook, which goes along with the DVDs seamlessly.

    I love that it teaches biology along with the Bible. The way the curriculum went along with creation was genius! I love that we could also reference back to the scriptures while we learned.

    We completed aquatic creatures for this review. The Biology 101 course so far has been tremendously interesting and engaging. The videos are visually rich with pictures and illustrations. Wes is a great narrator and host for this program and he is both interesting and entertaining. He captivates his audience well. My children, even my younger ones, were fascinated with this course so far and are excited to learn and watch more. I was even learning things that I did not know!

    We cannot wait to continue this course! It is fantastic and not just for homeschoolers!! You can use this as a supplement if your kids are in the public/private school system, especially if you want to have Christian education in your home. This is a great homeschool science, middle school science, and high school science course. We highly recommend this to anyone that wants to teach their children a biblical worldview of science.

    Chara Games Commissioned Review


    My family had the privilege of trying Commissioned from Chara Games for this review to use in conjunction with our own homeschool curriculum and Bible study. This is a Homeschool Review Crew Review. All opinions expressed are my own or those of my family.

    Patrick and Katherine Lysaght founded Chara Games in 2014 in hopes to bring Christian based tabletop games to the home that are fun for the family to play together. They named their company Chara which means unshakable joy in Biblical Greek. They created their first game, Commissioned, which was funded through a KickStarter campaign and a second game called 3 Seeds was also funded through KickStarter later on.

    Commissioned is a board game that is for 2-6 players and is for ages 14 and up. This historically-based cooperative, strategic deck-building style game takes about an hour to play and is built upon how the Early Christian Church was spread. The game covers the first 150 years of church history. There is no need to know the history of Christianity to play.

    To play you get to be one of the six Apostles: Paul, Peter, Barnabas, Andrew, Thomas or John. Each Apostle has specific characteristics, abilities, and ways they can help the game. Players in the game work together as a team with the other chosen Apostles to strengthen their individual decks of faith cards, grow the church, collect the books of the New Testament, all while overcoming trials, obstacles, and persecution. The game is played in three rounds: Arm (drawing faith cards), Live (taking action: trials, pray, share, move, and grow), and Mature (expanding faith decks). Commissioned has five separate scenarios you can choose to follow: Acts of the Apostles, Peter's Gentile Outreach, The First Missionary Journeys, Appeal to Caesar,  and To the Ends of the Earth. These scenarios make the game interesting every time it is played. The first scenario is the easiest and suggested for the first play of the game. Commissioned has two different difficulty levels of play and one adversary variant as well. Game ends when scenario victory conditions are met, 5 churches are extinguished, or the last Trial Card is drawn.

    Chara Games Commissioned Contents

    What Is Included In The Box:
    • 1 Double-Sided Game Board: the board map you play on, has two sides for the two difficulty levels.
    • 5 Double-Sided Scenario Cards: the first thing you choose in play to start the game. These tell important information, game board set up, victory conditions, and what failure means for each scenario.
    • 6 Unique Player Boards: go with each Apostle player.
    • 96 Faith Cards: six are drawn at first for each player, use these to acquire more faith cards after accomplishing 5 actions in the Live round the required amount of times. These have up to 5 components: Title, Faith, Point Value, Board Effect, New Testament Books (only on 2-Faith Cards), and Historical Reference.
    • 27 Trial Cards: number of turns is limited by the number of these and when you run out it is the end of the game.
    • 4 Wooden "Missionary Meeples": help populate the cities on the map with churches when there is less than 6 players.
    • 75 Wooden Church Member Cubes: represent church members on the map.
    • 1 Wooden Elder's Staff: is passed left along to each player on turn, Elder makes important decisions and rolls die.
    • 6 Wooden Apostle Player Pawns: color coded to match the player boards.
    • 30 Double-Sided "Stop" Tokens: stop things from happening, these are played during the Live round when indicated. One side is growth stop and other side is mission stop.
    • 5 Double-Sided "Extinguished" Tokens: match the art of the board, these are placed when a city location containing a church becomes empty either by trial or choice. If 5 churches are extinguished, the game is lost.
    • 1 "Converted City" Leader's Token: is played in the location with the Elder's Apostle pawn when this faith card is selected in the Share action. No trials except for Worldly Priorities and Mount Vesuvius Erupts can affect this area. If card is selected again, move token to specified city. Previous city looses protection. If played on a ship, move to city when the church leaves the ship.
    • 1 Roman Legion Token: is played with the Adversary Variant.
    • 1 8-Sided Die: rolled to know what to do next.
    • 1 12-Page Full Color Rule Book: for teaching the set up, instructions, and rules of the game.
    • 1 Theme Appendix: helps you learn about historical concepts encountered throughout the game.


    How We Used This and Our Thoughts:

    My family loves all types of games; whether it be board games, card games, video games, relay races, competitions, etc. We love testing our skill, wit, speed, and strategy. Games are great opportunities to get together with family and friends and have a great time. They help us learn how to: take turns, think ahead, make choices, have consequences for our actions, cooperate, work as a team, and be a good sport. We love family game night because it strengthens family ties & bonds, and builds memories. We also love educational and historical games for homeschool and we always like getting new games to add to our collection because it means a chance to try something different.

    The artwork of the Commissioned box, game boards, cards, and tokens are superb and vibrantly colored. The game is beautifully made and constructed well. It is made of high quality materials and I could see this lasting a long time if properly cared for.

    We found Commissioned to be a great board game of strategy and cooperation. Since it is a game for ages 14 plus I had my son Delbin who is 16 play the game with me. I would not recommend this game for really young children as it does go long and I would expect my 6 and 8 year old would get too fidgety and loose patience. This game is intense and I am so glad we watched the helpful "How-to-Play" video that is on the website because we would have been totally lost without it! I am so thankful that Chara Games made this, as it clarifies everything! We set up the game and played along using the demonstration video as our guide. The 12-page rule book is nice, but still a bit confusing and definitely made the game sound very complicated at first. I have never played a game this involved before although apparently it is similar to other strategy games of this type. It is definitely a game for the serious gamer.

    We actually took longer to play and achieve the winning requirements than just the hour it says it should take, but we were also just learning how to play...so maybe this is why. Once we got the game down it flowed seamlessly. It has so many different ways of play with tons of neat pieces that I do not think we will ever get bored playing. We also loved how much we came to understand better what the Apostles actually went through to while growing the Christian church. What an eye opener.

    Look for my upcoming review of 3 Seeds from Chara Games shortly after I receive it.

    The Pencil Grip, Inc. Kwik Stix Neons & Metalix Review and Giveaway #KwikStix


    Kwik Stix are from The Pencil Grip, Inc. They are solid tempera paint sticks that can be used without paint smocks, water, brushes, and drop cloths. These are simple to use, are mess free, and have no smell. You use them how you would a glue stick and they are about the same size too. Just uncap, twist up, and paint with it. Once you are done using that particular color twist down and recap. The paint dries in 90 seconds and the colors are bright, bold, and vivid. The paint's texture and consistency is a cross between lipstick, oil pastels, and crayons. These work great on paper, poster board, cardboard, wood, canvas, and more! These are non-toxic and safe for little artists.

    Kwik Stix Color Chart

    Kwik Stix Neons and Metalix are two sets of colors of Kwik Stix from The Pencil Grip, Inc. The Kwik Stix Neons 6 pk comes with a rainbow of neon colors including: pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. The Kwik Stix Metalix 6 pk comes with a rainbow of jewel tone colors including: magenta, emerald green, sapphire blue, royal purple, silver and gold. Besides 6 packs of Neons and Metalix these also come in Classic colors and larger packs.

    My daughters making pictures with Kwik Stix solid tempera paint sticks.

    We received our first box of Kwik Stix 12pk in Classic colors not too long ago. Now we have the Neons and Metalix colors too. The neons are bright and luminous. The metalix colors are bold and rich. We love having so many colors to choose from! My daughters, Teela (8 years old) and Zari (6 years old), love them! I do too! The best part of Kwik Stix for this mama is the no mess factor! I also love that I didn't have to get out any extra equipment for coverage and no water is needed. This means no drips or spills. I also noticed that since the paint dried quickly there was also very little color bleeding into the next. You can not get very detailed with these because of the blunt end, but the paint makes great layers. The sticks are very easy for little hands to operate and are a wonderful addition to our kids art supplies!

    Top and Right: Metalix, Bottom: Neons. Notice how the Metalix shimmer in sunlight.

    Homeschool Legacy Christmas Comes to America Once-a-Week Unit Study Review



    My family had the privilege of trying the Christmas Comes to America Once-a-Week Unit Study from Homeschool Legacy for this review to use in conjunction with our own homeschool curriculum. This is a Homeschool Review Crew Review. All opinions expressed are my own or those of my family.

    Christmas Comes to America is a Once-a-Week Unit Study by Homeschool Legacy. This is a 4 week study that is geared towards second through twelfth graders. It has an option to use this to help your child earn a Music Badge in Boy Scouts or Music Appreciation Badge in American Heritage Girls or a project record in 4H, if your child is involved with any of those. I was given this in digital format.

    Layout of weeks for the 45-page pdf:
    • Week One: Dutch - Dutch traditions, Legend of Santa Claus, history of the real St. Nicholas, how to make Dutch Hot Cocoa, how to make homemade marshmallows, etc.
    • Week Two: English - Reading A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, History of caroling, how to make wassail, history of Christmas cards, etc.
    • Week Three: Germans - History behind the Gingerbread House, Holiday concert etiquette, Johann Sebastian Bach and his Christmas Cantatas, George Frederic Handel and his MESSIAH, Hansel and Gretel, history of Christmas trees, tinsel, glass ornaments, Christmas tree lights, cookie ornaments, advent wreaths, and Christmas stockings, Legend of lights on a Christmas Tree, etc.
    • Week Four: An American Christmas - Reading The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, ‘Twas the Night before Christmas, Gift of the Magi & Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Irving Berlin and his song White Christmas, how to make popcorn and cranberry garlands, decorate an After Christmas tree for the birds, etc.

    Unit studies provide us with an in depth view of a certain focused theme and has us do many different subjects surrounding it. For example; with this Christmas Comes to America history unit study we were doing Bible lessons, history, geography, culture, reading, language, life skills, arts & crafts, music, science, etc. We also partook in field trips, watched movies, read devotionals and books on the reading list provided, listened to Christmas music, and made some yummy recipes that were included. As a homeschooling family we love unit studies! It gets us away from some of the more mundane work we sometimes have to do in our schooling at home and gives us a chance to dive into some hands on studies. A lot of the time unit studies also let us get out in the field to learn.

    If you choose to use Homeschool Legacy Once-a-Week Unit Studies as your main source of history or science you can combine any four to five Once-a-Week Unit Studies to easily satisfy a full course study of those subjects. All Once-a-Week Unit Studies are appropriate for Grades 2-12, though upper levels will still need their lab sciences. These are comprehensive and wonderful for credits.

    Homeschool Legacy Christmas Comes to America unit study is interactive and hands-on. Each study starts off with library reading and video choices. Then goes with a supply list, daily activities, and once-a-week activities. Within its pages you learn the history of all sorts of Christmas traditions.




    How We Used This and Our Thoughts:
    Christmas is one of my favorite holidays. It celebrates the birth of our Savior and I absolutely love giving gifts! I love going to look at neighborhood/city Christmas light displays with my family. I love decorating and going to local nativities. Every year I can count on the Monticello Hotel in Longview Washington to have a wonderful Christmas light display to see. We also have gone to the Portland Zoo and seen their neat lights. Our church puts on a Festival of Nativities at the Longview Stake building across the river from us. There is also a Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Kelso Washington that puts on a live Journey to Bethlehem which is spectacular!

    We had a lot of fun so far with the Homeschool Legacy Christmas Comes to America unit study. We have done three out of the four weeks, but plan on also expanding upon what we did to include even more during the holiday season. So far we have followed the suggested schedule in the study. I love that there is a reading list of books and other media resources to pull from. We watched It's a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street as a family and listened to different Christmas music that was suggested as well. I also really like that with the digital version of the study we can access links within the unit directly from it. We are going to enjoy making garlands and the Christmas tree for the birds when it gets closer to Christmas. I love that these are Biblically centered and very flexible to incorporate in one's own busy schedule. We have learned a lot about Christmas that I didn't know and I am glad to have Homeschool Legacy as a unit study choice for my homeschool. I recommend this holiday unit study very highly. Homeschool Legacy also has a Thanksgiving with the Pilgrims Once-a-Week Micro-Study for the upcoming holidays.

    BUY IT
    Homeschool Legacy Christmas Comes to America Once-a-Week Unit Study in Paperback format is $18.95 and Downloadable Grab-N-Go format is $14.

    Never Buy Bread Again – 20+ Homemade Bread Recipes Cookbook Kickstarter and Review


    My mother used to bake bread all the time. Her Honey Whole Wheat Bread and sweet roles were my favorite growing up. I loved to watch the dough rise. That heavenly smell and taste of fresh baked homemade bread from the oven always made me happy.

    Fast forward to now and I confess that the only bread I have made is sweet quick breads like banana or zucchini and Amish Friendship Bread. Making more breads has been something that I would like to do, but I have made excuse after excuse in doing...my kitchen is super small, it will take to much time, what if the yeast doesn't work, what if the dough doesn't rise, what if I don't knead it enough, etc. These doubts have stopped me from making more breads at home.

    Enter the Never Buy Bread Again – 20+ Homemade Bread Recipes Cookbook by Laurie Neverman of Common Sense Homesteading. This cookbook is on Kickstarter right now and needs your support to be funded! I received it free in digital format to review.

    This bread cookbook is far more than just a cookbook with recipes. In the beginning it has helpful Troubleshooting Tips for Bread Baking. These tips help the hesitation, reluctance, and uncertainty to become confidence and clarity. These tips include the: list of tools/equipment needed to bake bread, flour that should be used and why, water and ingredient temperature for bread making, yeast to use, amount of yeast per package, proper way and order to add ingredients, temperature needed for bread to rise, reasons for bread not rising, reasons for dough being too sticky, position in the oven to place the bread for cooking, amount of loaves that can bake at a time, reasons for overly dense bread, amount you should knead your dough, reasons why your dough smells sour like alcohol, reasons why bread didn't brown, and reasons why your bread collapsed. There are also storage tips, recipes for some of the author's favorite things to eat with bread and recipes that will help you repurpose leftover bread in new ways.

    I love that these recipes are all simple, straightforward healthy breads that I can make myself. These recipes don't have additives, preservatives, or ingredients that I cannot pronounce in them. They do have whole ingredients that are both healthy and delicious. I also discovered that my sister that has a gluten intolerance can eat many of these too.
