Oh I am having so much fun seeing all of the people that are already enjoying the giveaways from this Month of Magic here at Your Natural Learner! <3 If you haven’t grabbed the other freebies yet, make sure you head back to the blog to grab days 1 and 2. They’re definitely must-haves!
Today, I’m highlighting the importance of having an art studio in your home for your children to create anytime they desire by giving away a free Art Supply List!
This list should help you bring some new materials to your art shelves and art exploration with your kids, even if you already have an awesome art studio setup! So grab your download and then share with a friend!
If you’re feeling like you need some support in setting up your art space at home or in a classroom setting, check out this three-part series I wrote about how to make this happen and why, or enroll in my Art Workshop to get all the nitty gritty details!
Make sure to come back tomorrow to see what’s next in this month’s magical giveaways!
One of the things that I see most often in my work is an abundance of “beliefs.” Everyone wants to tell everyone else about the philosophy they should follow, how what they’re doing with their kids is right or wrong, and that if you don’t adhere to this one particular philosophy TO A T then you’re going to fail everything with your kids. I’m sure you can relate to feeling this way. Here you are – just trying to do what you know is best for your unique kids, and after just a few hours of reading on the internet you’re left feeling like you’re trapped in some scary version of Learning Russian Roulette.
Well, in case you can’t tell, this drives me crazy! Sure, all of the beliefs and philosophies out there are well-intended and I believe they all have something to offer. But here’s what really matters – YOUR CHILD. What works best for my kid might not work best for yours. What works for one family might not be best for another family. I firmly believe in Natural Learning for all children, but even how that is implemented is going to look different for every family.
And so, today, I’m gifting you a Learning Beliefs Workbook for you to print out, grab a mug of tea, and work through on your own. Figure out what YOU believe and what works best for YOUR child. It’s sort of a way for you to synthesize all of the stuff that’s been thrown at you from all angles and give you a place to put it down into one big idea for your child and your family. <3
This is a portion of a much larger project that my students in Grow Your Natural Learner work through as we work to develop their own individual learning philosophy statements. I’m so excited to share this with you and to hear back from you about how it helps you shape your confidence and personal belief system.
And don’t forget to come back tomorrow for another awesome, magical natural learning giveaway! If you’re afraid that you’ll forget – make sure you follow on Facebook and Instagram so you will get reminders!
It’s FINALLY October…. which is pretty much the best time because it officially ushers in the holiday season – my absolute favorite time of the year. When thinking about how to celebrate this glorious month, I was inspired by a lovely lady, Leonie Dawson, and a similar “Month of Magic” that she did last month – giving away something to her audience every day to help them on their journey. I knew as soon as I saw this that I was something I wanted to do for you!
And so here we are… Day One… and I’ll be starting this giveaway train off with a free Autumn Activity Guide.
This guide has five super fun, and easy to set up activities to do with your child to celebrate the start of Autumn! There’s also a little bonus section to help you prep for the coming chillier days.
The activities from this guide come from my super popular Autumn Theme from A Child’s World Pre-K/Kindergarten Curriculum, so if you want even MORE Autumn awesomeness, make sure you check that out!
I can’t wait to share something new and exciting (and FREE) with you tomorrow! Make sure to come back and see what that freebie will be. If you need a reminder, make sure to follow along on Facebook or join our awesome Your Natural Learner Facebook Group! Finally, if you have a friend that would love this activity guide too – make sure to share this link with them!
Here’s to a Month of MAGIC! 💫 (Oh… and yeah…. expect plenty of Harry Potter references)
