Robinson Curriculum and Tablets- The Struggle is REAL!

The Robinson Curriculum has a few rules, one of them being NO SCREEN TIME.

In this video I share my thoughts on it and how some Christmas gifts are making me consider bending that rule. Affiliate link below the video. Let me know in the comments below, what you do you think about kid tablets?

ADVENTure #2 Gnome on the Roam Activities

I really appreciate how the makers of Gnome on the Roam not only put an Adventure group together on FB, developed a super cool app designed to get parents OFF their phones, but also sending out emails every day with Advent activities..Yes please! I need everything planned out for me already 🙂

Today’s task was to put a box today of crafting items for them to have fun with. I already has a few things and just added a couple of things from the Dollar Tree of course.

It kept them busy from the time we came back home from Ikea until dinner time whew! That was nice.

How is your December going?

Gnome on the Roam- Unboxing, Day 1 Advent and DIY Countdown Plate.

One of the only Cyber Monday deals I purchased was this fun family adventure kit, called Gnome on the Roam. The premise is a little Gnome you name and bring it with you on adventures and document in your family journal. It comes with a storybook and a really cool wood looking pen. The journal is very nice and sturdy too, which is important with 6 kids. We are excited to document our family adventures in this new way. I plan on making a video of our Gnome around our town to promote too, that will be a fun family project.

Click here to see a video of us unboxing it, if you are interested what comes in the kit.

The creators of this award winning new toy, have created an advent group for us where they give us a task every day before the big day.

Today’s task was to create some sort of a timeline before Christmas with activities you want to do. I took advantage to film a tutorial for you with items that I purchased from the dollar tree. The only other thing you would need is some black paint.

I hope you enjoy these videos!

Top 6 Christmas Picks- Coding, Educational, Local Fun 2017

It’s that time of year! I wanted to make a video on the items we have on our list to buy the kids this year. We had a very specific set of criteria.

-Educational Toys (Homeschool sneak in!)

-Durable (Let’s not repeat the fiasco of the stuffed puppy where the only thing was to see how many baby puppies were in the tummy..then tossed to the side in a couple of days).

-Can be used by all the children

-Can be passed down to younger kids

So there you have it, I hope you enjoy this list. I REALLY like these following items and also I talk about the POGO passes for the experience gift…and give you a tip of when they will be the cheapest! Link below the Video-
