Ticket to Ride
There are several versions of this game. We like to pair the game with our history or geography lessons.
This one has been on our list for a long time! Perfect for those who love to travel or participate in the Junior Park Ranger program.
Easy to learn strategy game that will have the whole family hooked!
Think Scrabble meets your math facts…..There’s a few versions of this, depending what level you are buying for.
A favorite logic game in our house. It’s disguised as a regular game but it definitely keeps the brain working and helps build logic and reasoning skills.
This one is always a hit at our family game nights!
There are a ton of games you can play with just a set of dice. We even created some game sheets for our favorite dice games!
Both of our girls have Kindles (I have one also) and they are one of the best gifts they’ve received. The ability to add library books means we can simply download any books needed almost instantly. They love this feature when they are reading a series and want to start the next book right away. It’s increased their desire to read also! The kids edition is the same as the regular edition but comes with a case and a fantastic warranty.
This kit contains everything need to write a story -story and illustration template pages, a guide book and instructions, a set of color markers and a postage-paid envelope and order form to order a hard copy of their own book!
Nothing is better than receiving your very own mail as a kid 🙂 Magazine subscriptions are great gifts that extend well beyond the holiday!
We have several favorites, but this How to Draw Cute Stuff is the most used in our house!
This one comes with a phone adapter so you can photograph your findings.
Build your own video game
Perfect for the kiddo who likes to tinker and make things “work”. There are lots of sets to choose from and all work together so you can continue to build.
Exploration & Outdoors
We have subscribed to several different KiwiCo boxes and loved every single one! They include detailed instructions and the projects are always fun and age appropriate.
We’ve subscribed to both the World Edition and the USA edition for the girls. The amount of information, activities and hands-on trinkets that you receive is well worth the subscription cost!
A treat box from a different country each month. Perfect to pair with your geography lessons!
A book subscription box that extends beyond the book!
We love a good escape room. A fun family night out for us is the local escape room so we were thrilled to find an escape room subscription box from Crate Joy!
Science projects delivered right to your door with your choice of kids science, chemistry or physics.
Our absolute most favorite online subscription is our Night Zookeeper subscription! We struggled with writing but this platform has created a love for writing with our girls! Plus, they receive feedback and suggestions on their writing from a team of tutors! Use my link and get 50% off an annual subscription!
Curiosity Stream is a streaming channel that is home to thousands of documentaries. And no, these are not your boring, snore worthy documentaries! We have been extremely pleased with the content and interesting shows available for less than $20/year!
This game has taken our math lessons to a whole new level. The girls actually to be limited on math time when playing this game. Crazy, right?!
Step by step chalk pastel lessons that you can pair with pretty much any homeschool lesson!
Trampoline or Adventure Park
Historical or Natural Museum
Kiln or Art Studio
