Friday Favorites: July

It’s been awhile since we’ve done a Friday Favorites around here, but I have a few things I’m excited about and want to share with you! (Affiliate links used throughout the post.)

Friday Favorites from Lone Star Signers: July Edition!

1. We are LOVING the Sparkbox Toys rental service {referral link}. My girls have been playing with this Plan Toys Gear Puzzle a lot this week–definitely a favorite for all of us! (View this toy on Amazon.)

2. I mentioned how much we love the Stack the States app {affiliate link} in my Cultivating a Love for Geography post. Addie earns between 20-30 minutes of iPad time each day as a motivator for memory work–yesterday, she successfully labeled ALL FIFTY states with limited help from me or the map on the wall. (Not bad for a six-year-old!)

3. Somewhere along the way, I heard about GoNoodle, a free website that features brain break videos for children. We are spending a lot of time indoors this summer, so anything to help us MOVE (especially right before rest time) is welcome!

4. Earlier this week, we first saw The Okee Dokee Brothers music video “Jamboree” on GoNoodle. This led to us borrowing one of their CD/DVDs from the library and discussing a random trip to Longview, Texas to see them perform next month.

5. Finally: Surprised by Motherhood. Read it!

Have a wonderful weekend, y’all!
