For those who prefer shopping from home or for those who are looking for educational products to use as gifts…
…I wanted to share a few Black Friday and Cyber Week Deals and/or freebies from companies whose products we use and recommend. If I come across additional deals this week that meet our highly sought-after qualification of nerdy-gifts-for-moms-to-give-or-receive, I’ll add them to this page. Your purchases through the following affiliate links will support some needed changes in our website design here at Half-a-Hundred Acre Wood. Thank you for your support!
Get 60% Off Your First Month’s Subscription through November 27th!
Two years ago as a Christmas gift to our boys, we bought subscriptions to Tinker Crate, Doodle Crate, and Kiwi Crate. It was such a great way to guide them through science projects, engineering concepts, and handicrafts. (They went on to use some of their projects in their weekly presentations at our Classical Conversations homeschool community.) It has been one of the best gifts we have ever given them!
From now through December 15, everything on the Educents website is on sale. Everybody can save an extra 10% by using the code HOLIDAY.
Educents offers holiday gift inspiration and educational tools at great discounts. It’s where we’ve found the best prices for Life of Fred Math, the math my children choose to do in their spare time. We own the entire set of math books: from Apples to Calculus. But Life of Fred is just one of a bazillion things you can find on Educents. Another of our favorites is The Maestro Classics. The Maestro Classics are a fun way to learn classical music! This 12-CD set includes The Nutcracker, My Name is Handel, and Peter and the Wolf, to name a few (and each cd includes an activity book). During Cyberweek, Educents is offering the Maestro Classics set for cheaper than Amazon (less $7 per cd). Check out audio samples at this link!

Not only are we mapping the states & capitals and physical features, but we’re also pinpointing historical battles, state flags, national parks, historical trails, and more!

30% off all Bible Studies.
Over a three-year period, our family embarked on a study of the entire Bible through stick-figure drawing. The simplicity of Grapevine Studies helped me (a mom with distractible tendencies) to focus on studying the Bible with our children. After we were finished with all of the studies, I bound their drawings and copywork as keepsakes. So precious! You can read more about our experience with Grapevine Studies here, and you can download a free lesson here! Receive 30% off all Bible Studies, no code needed, starting Friday, November 24, 2017.
