Our Review Of Magic Stix Washable Markers

      We were so excited to be offered the chance to do a review for The Pencil Grip, Inc. company again! We have used a few of their products in the past so having another one to try was right up our alley. This company has such cool little gadgets for the artsy child and Skyler has enjoyed them all. We were offered to use the Magic Stix 12 pk. Washable Markers this time around. What had caught my interest to be truthful right off were the fact that they were odorless as well as guaranteed not to dry out. 

      We received these markers on the 11th of December. I was very impressed with the plastic casing they come in as well. 

      No cheap cardboard box that is going to rip or fall apart! I appreciate knowing that a company cares about the fact that people want to take care of their products and not have to replace over and over again. They make things that last!

Junior Market Day!

      So another homeschool mom got the idea of a kids farmers market I would call it. The kids who make stuff had a chance to set up booths and sell the handmade things they make. I truly had zero idea of how many little makers we had in the area! It seemed a perfect time for Fox to show off his baking skills.... We had NOOOOO idea what making 100 cupcakes meant! 

      I mean I knew it would be messy but.... the kitchen looked like a war zone when we finished! We sadly had to throw out the first 3 dozen because we used the wrong cocoa! I don't even know how that happened. Needless to say finding some in our small town was an issue at Christmas time. Three stores later and we barely had enough and of course only the most expensive was left LOL! 

      Fox has to have music and it blared all night long!

Peek At Our Week 14 And Christmas School!

      It was Christmas fun week around here this time! We had some themes for the week, a math project, Christmas science fun and learning about Christmas in other states! The kiddos had fun and learned along the way so wonderful week! Fox just did his regular school since he said he was too old for Christmas school. He regretted this choice! I had tried to get a book for each theme but sometimes that didn't work out. The theme activities were some language arts type things and a few math activities. 

      I purchased The Twelve Days Of Christmas Activities on Teachers Pay Teachers.
