Printable: Free Christmas List Printable for Kids!

Jingle Bells, jingle bells, jingle alllll the way!!!
Too Soon?

As much as I LOVE Christmas, I was NOT planning on diving into any holiday printables/activities just yet. No, really....I wasn't. BUT...I have family members that shop early and need the boys' Christmas lists now (more like two weeks ago). So, I figured I would create a printable and share it with you guys (since I was already making one to send out to family). I promise I won't unleash the "Fa La La La La" on ya'll until mid November....lol!

Printable: Finish The Story "The Secret Apple Orchard" Activity

Snippet: The sign on the gate said “Welcome To Harrison Orchard.” I looked at Jason and I can tell he was thinking the same thing I was thinking. “We HAVE to check it out!” I grabbed the handle and gave the door a long tug. It sloooowly creaked open and you won’t believe what we saw!


Let your kid's imagination run wild! 
Read the first part of this story, together, and allow your child to create their own ending....anything goes! Then, have them draw a picture of their "Secret Apple Orchard."

*Would LOVE for you guys to post your endings on my facebook page Creative Education at Home or tag me in your post on ig @creativehomeschool 😊

Pull up a chair, the download is on me!

My Top 5 Places To Score STE(A)M Kits/Items!

Two boys....nonstop playing! I guess that's the main reason why the majority of our school work includes games, activities and/or building something....ALWAYS! One of our favorite things to do is build cars and robots...any kind, any size. And they don't have to be elaborate or expensive....just fun! Here's a list of my "go to" places for cool building kits/items:

Number one (and definitely my favorite) Five Below! Not sure of how many stores they have in the US but I know they have them in NJ (where we used to live) and FL (we have to travel a bit further to get there but definitely worth it.) They have TONS of kits, crafts and supplies! I've scored solor bots, spider bots, race cars and alot of other cool supplies.
"Spider bot" (kinda creeped me out...but cool)

"Solarbot"




Amazon
I mean....what list DOESN'T include Amazon? Pretty sure everyone knows all of the great items you can score on Amazon. I purchase LOADS of STEAM supplies and kits from them. We tried our hand at a battery operated car (very simple model) a few months ago and it was a SUCCESS! Amazon now has a monthly STEAM subscription where you can get one cool project per month. If your kids are into building, it may be worth a try!

I'm still not a fan of B&N having toys in their stores  (too much of a distraction for the boys) BUT I do love the cool kits they have. They can cost a pretty penny so be sure to check out the clearance section. That's my first stop when I go! I usually score some cool "build a car" kits, legos, blocks and drawing supplies.

"Build a car" Kit



Ok...I'll confess....I am GUILTY of buying ALL of the boys' Christmas gifts from this store! (Thankfully, their aunty and grandmothers came through with the "cool" toys....lol). I just couldn't help myself! They have SO many learning toys! I've purchased fidget tools, puzzles, building kits, educational books, legos and then some. Not sure if they have many locations but if you do happen to have one close by GO....NOW! (Well, not right now...but soon 😉). They even have FREE gift wrapping!!! I know!!!! Amazing, right?!

Zoobs car with eyes that light up!


So, this is technically a store BUT YouTube is filled with videos that can give you great ideas/projects to do! Just type in "Simple STEM projects" or something similar, and I'm pretty sure you'll have enough to do for weeks! We like the cool Science experiments for kids, art tutorial videos (Art for Kids Hub is our fave) and simple household supply projects. Check out this cool rubberband powered car we made!

Rubberband Powered Car: built using everything we already had on hand!

*Honorable mentions (more on the art side of things): Michael's, Joann's and A.C. Moore. I'm a crafter so we are literally in one of these stores at LEAST once a week! Tons of arts and craft kits/ideas and classes!


What's your favorite spots to score great STEAM items? Feel free to share! We love adding great places to our list!

Happy Fall, ya'll!!! Even though we ALL know they were beating us in the head with pumpkin spice toothpaste since the end of August (don't judge me if I actually bought it....lol). Anyway....Fall is my absolute FAVORITE season....used to be because of the beautiful crisp weather in NJ  BUT Florida acts like they don't know how important it is for a sista to rock sweaters, leggings and ridiculously high boots...smh! But, the activities MUST go on! So, I made this cute printable for you guys to make a "Fall Fun!" list with your kids/students! Yup....it's FREE! Pull up a chair.....the download is on me 😉
