Great Freebie

Hey y'all.  If you're like me - then you like FREE!  And, have I got a great one to share with you today!  If you go to this website you can sign up for the homeschool freebie of the day.  I venture to say that it's not just for homeschooler's, though.  For instance, yesterday's and today's freebies are two parts of an awesome book if you have boys; "The American Boy's Handy Book".  It is over a 400 page book download total (between the 2 days) full of activities and skills to keep your little man/men occupied.

The book is broken down into each of the four seasons, with activities to coincide with each one.  A very small sampling of what your son (or husband) can learn would be how to make their own kites, fishing poles, bobbers, nets, minnow bucket, different kinds of boats, water telescopes, soap bubble pipes, how to camp without a tent and the information that goes with that.  It also has chapters on wild birds; how to recognize, raising them, and preserving nests and eggs; how to make a boomerang, and information all about dogs.  In the winter section it has parts on building snow forts, shields and ammunition, and sleds, chair-sleighs and snow shoes.  And that is just barely scratching the surface.

Later this week there will be a similar book offered that may appeal more to girls.  Of course, I know lots of girls that would have a hey day with the book I just mentioned, too. :0)

So, if you're looking for some good, free entertainment for your kids this summer - and any time they start in with, "I'm bored!" - go to the Homeschool Freebie website and download yourself a copy of "The American Boy's Handy Book".  They offer great freebies Monday through Friday every week.

Have a great Tuesday!
