Groovy Lab in a Box: A Science Kit That Includes EVERYTHING!

My kids absolutely love doing science experiments – and so do I! What we don’t love is having to find all the needed supplies, and forgetting something, and then not actually doing the experiment because we didn’t pick up the last supply at the store.

That’s why I was SO excited to find out about Groovy Lab in a Box! They have everything – and I mean everything – you need to complete a science experiment, all in one convenient package!

From the website…

“Groovy Lab in a Box includes everything you need to complete all activities, inquiry experiments, tests, and engineering design challenges. Including the basics. You never have to go looking for popsicle sticks or straws or pipe cleaners ever again. If the activity, experiment, test, challenge, or inquiry requires a specific tool or supply, it’s in the box!”

I love that! No more hunting the house trying to find something that will work – because it all magically arrives on your doorstep! Go here to read more about what’s inside each box.

Not only that, but you can choose to have one groovy lab box mailed to you (hurry, they’re going fast!) or you can sign up for a subscription plan!

Sponsor Thank You: Davonne Parks, Organizer

The Homeschool Blog Awards wouldn’t be possible without our great sponsors, so we want to take some time to thank them!  Please remember to visit their website and social media links to show your appreciation.

Davonne Parks, Organizer

Every homeschool parent needs to learn how to manage their time wisely if they want to make the most of their homeschool days. As a fellow homeschool mom, Davonne Parks really gets that.

And, in order to become more efficient in her own life, Davonne learned how to manage her time so she could start being on time. She also spent months learning how to make her home go from chaos to clutter-free, and she’s spent years refining those techniques.

Then she took the tools and lessons she learned and she turned them into incredibly helpful, well written, and easy-to-read eBooks.

Davonne’s books include hilarious embarrassing stories, practical tips, inspirational quotes, gentle encouragement, and fabulous suggestions that any mom who’d like to be a little more organized or timely can benefit from.

For the Blog Awards, Davonne is generously giving away 20 copies of Chaos to Clutter-Free and 20 copies of 28 Days to Timeliness: Tips and Confessions from a Semi-Reformed Late Person!

Plus, anyone who subscribes to Davonne’s blog will receive a complimentary copy of her eBook 101 Time-Saving Tips for Busy Moms!

You can connect with Davonne Parks and get helpful encouragement and tips about organization, simplicity, and heart-filled motherhood on her blog, Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.

Free Planning Resources for Homeschool Bloggers

I am a homeschooler. And a blogger. I actually started my blog because we homeschool. October, however, was the last month we had internet at home. Since then I’ve been a little scattered at how to get to my blogging on a schedule {homeschooling just keeps on no matter what!}.
 Homeschool Blogging Resources @ hsbapost.com
When looking for blogging schedules to help me organize and maximize my time while online, I went to the Facebook group Blogging Homeschoolers, of which I was a member, where I was directed to some great templates for just this purpose. Here are my favorites*:
 
A beautiful but simple planner from Oh the Lovely Things
“My Blog Topics” by Bridgett Edwards
Blog planner {60+ pages!} from Jolanthe
Planner with Review/Sponsors/Ideas pages by Just Another Static Heart

This is the one I used a couple years ago {but the link is for last year}:
Confessions of a Homeschooler, free 2013 blog planner or check out 2014’s freebie here. 

Here are a couple more that I am bookmarking but I don’t like quite as much, but are still worthy of mentions:
Blog Organizer Templates by My Girl Thursday
Weekly Blog Planner by Indie Fixx

I really want ones with minimum amount of color since I have to print them. At our libraries we are allowed to print, for free, 10 pages a day. I could conceivably print them off at the library and save some ink.

I am sure that a Google search will bring up many different templates to use. Some free, some for a fee. Of course, a spiral notebook and pencil works well, too!
 

Are you a homeschool blogger?  How do you plan your blogging time while homeschooling?

 

*Note: the ones I’ve linked are older and the links were working when I tried but they aren’t mine so may not work at a later time.
