Ways to Save Money This Holiday Season!

2018_12_14 - Ways to Save This Holiday Season_Stacey Wolking

Just like you, as a homeschooling parent, I am always on the lookout for high quality educational and FUN resources for my children. Now that my kids are all grown, graduated, and married, as a grandma to six grandchildren, I am even more on the hunt for fun and engaging toys and games to buy!

There are so many high-quality options for kids of all ages and abilities. Here are just a few of my favorite educational subscription boxes and toy websites. Some are even offering discounts EXCLUSIVLY to our readers!

Monthly subscriptions are the new rage. What’s not to love about getting a box in the mail with everything you need to make a great experience happen?!

Craftsmancrate.com offers a monthly subscription that includes a complete kit for the 12-and-up-crowd.
This kit allows you to learn a real skill and produce real projects with real tools. Use the coupon code “HSLDATEN” to get $10 off of your first month’s subscription!*

Kiwico.com includes hands-on science and art projects for all ages in a monthly subscription. They are offering a free trial. Click this link and pay just $4.95 shipping to get your first crate free!*

If you’d like a fun, simple way to teach cooking skills, Raddishkids.com provides a “cooking class in a box.” Each month, you’ll receive a kit full of items such as recipe guides, culinary skill lessons, and kitchen tools. This monthly cooking club subscription for all ages is designed to inspire a lifelong love of good food.

STEM is our future! The STEMtoystore.com has everything that “cool” parents and grandparents need – Building, Coding, and Robotic kits; 3D puzzles, and much more! They are even in the process of creating a homeschool resource section of their website, so be sure to check back. Get 10% off with this link.  (Min $99 order/Exp 12/31/18)*

I have been buying Fat Brain Toys for years. It is so easy to find just the right gift in their “shop by age section”.  I also love that they offer recommendations for children with a variety of special needs in their Special Needs Resource Center.

Home Science Tools has all kinds of science kits and gifts for all ages. They offer a year-round 10% discount to HSLDA members through our PERX program.

And as you are doing your shopping, please don’t forget our Clicks for Homeschooling program. When you click thru to our participating retailers, you are supporting homeschoolers in need.

It’s a beautiful thing to give while you shop!

Happy shopping and giving! And have a blessed Christmas!
