Holiday cheer and gift ideas

From our blog, 10 Ways to Keep the Holidays Simple: “#5. Value simple gifts. If your children are old enough to participate in gift-giving, encourage them to make gifts with their hands and from their hearts. Don’t worry about setting them up with complicated crafts, and don’t distract them from the process of creation by focusing on the finished product. Simple is fine.” We love handcrafted gifts, too. Recently, through our partnership with Gogi Abroad, we discovered these adorable math gnomes that are handmade from natural materials at a women’s collective in Peru. A perfect gift idea for grandparents with homeschooled littles? The set of four comes nestled in a sweet gift bag and includes a small story book. Find them in our Bookstore. For high school students, Gogi Abroad offers an exciting service-based learning opportunity in Peru next March, 2016. There are a only a couple of spots left. Click here for more information.
