Finding Educational Activitites in Most Unexpected Places Review and Discount Code

As we are planning on homeschooling. I contacted the Homeschooling mother and creator of this E-Book and she was very grateful to send me the download link. I have since looked at it and am so happy to use some of these activities with Avery. They are some of the most simple things you can find and use. 

At Avery's age learning is through play so this is perfect for her. 
Here is a screenshot of a segment in the e-book. This section is on bubbles.
I think these are great ideas and I know I would've never thought of them on my own. She has so many ideas in there. Some of the subjects she uses are balls, blocks, Cotton Balls, Laundry, Plastic bottles, Plastic Easter Eggs, etc! So many things! There's over 200 activities and I know these will keep children busy. 

We are starting school here on September 13th. We will do 4 days a week about 2-3 hours a day. I think this is more than enough. I think that I can do one of these activities a day and get through most of the school year. Especially at 4 days a week. Or 2 activities a week and get through them all in one year. 

You can make these really educational or just do them for fun. But in this age, like I said, learning through play. They learn through these activities so much more than you think they could. 

What's also really awesome about this e-book? You don't have to search your bookshelves and under your couch trying to find it. It's always right there on your desktop, so there's no excuse to not get creative with your kiddos!

Angie has very generously offered a 20% code 1andcounting to BUY this e-book for just $6!!!

Price: The E-Book is $7.50 and this is an awesome price!! 

Overall: ***** although we haven't done any of these activities yet I know they will be a hit. 
*Disclaimer* I received these products directly from the Company for Review. I was not paid to try out these products!*

Heather - I'm glad that you enjoyed the book.

In case anyone is interested in the book, the link to purchase it is: (I didn't see that in your post, unless I skipped over it. This is also a great place for people to read excerpts of other reviews, as well as more information about the eBook.)

I would most definitely just do all of these activities as fun activities, and not worry about trying to take an educational approach. These are things that children will just naturally learn from, since this is the age when children seem to learn so much more just by exploring and playing.
