Do you want an easy way to fall into the cooler seasons of fall
and winter? This e-book by The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine will
put you in the mood to celebrate. It is a colorful e-book that
you can download from their store. There are more than 80 pages
of fall and winter favorites.
The e-book is broken down by season. In each season there are
traditions, crafts, home decorating ideas, tips for entertaining,
games, book reviews, poetry, and gift ideas. The clip art is beautiful.
There was an article on window painting for the fall with a real
picture of the painting that helped me visualize the project. The
recipes did not have pictures of the prepared food, but the recipes
looked yummy. The crafts had pictures of each of the steps for
the difficult tasks. The 3-D Snowflake looks like a great craft,
but without the pictures my kids and I would have been stuck. Now
our house is decorated for the winter.
I loved seeing the traditions and recipes from other homeschooling
moms. I liked how some of the very creative ideas seemed easy to
accomplish. As a homeschooling mom who wears many hats sometimes,
I might see a great idea but lack the time and resources to accomplish
it. One of the ideas for Thanksgiving was to write things that
we are thankful for on paper and put them on a bulletin board.
I can do that!
This e-book helped put me in the mood for the holidays. It reminded
me of the simple things that I can do to enjoy the season. The
section that had gifts that the children could make for friends
and family had beautiful pictures and good instructions. There
were things to make that didn't cost a lot of money. The e-book
gave us inspiration. My fourth-grade daughter loved looking at
the projects. When we are in a slump at school, she will look over
a holiday food or craft and spice up our day with one of them.
We have thoroughly enjoyed the e-book Homespun Holidays Fall
and Winter. We look forward to reading more seasonal books
from The Old Schoolhouse.
