WE had some crazy stuff happen at the beginning of this year. My husband was not feeling well. He told me he felt like he had a heart attack. I did not take that lightly. We called 911 and he ended up staying in the hospital for almost two weeks! I've decided that my #NEWYEARRESOLUTION this year would be to get my husband healthy and to make no more resolutions. So far I'm keeping the second half! Seriously, though, one thing I did want to do this year was to incorporate more science, physical activity, and play into our homeschooling curriculum. I love that Educents has made it easy for me to do so!
Wouldn’t it be great for your kids to learn to play a musical instrument, speak a new language, or pick up some computer skills? Educents has the tools to help your kiddos achieve GREATNESS in 2016!

The lessons will guide you and your family through a 20-40 minute physical education session. You can do as much or little as you like depending on how much time you have.
Resolution #3: Keep the house cleanEnough said.
"I cannot imagine a more well spent $20! I am not even kidding--my house looks stellar and my kids have that feeling of accomplishment, knowing they've worked hard and done an amazing job. I've tried chore charts and reward systems but this is by far the easiest and the most all-encompassing." - Celena, The Traveling Sisterhood
Resolution #4: Be more creative
Kids gotta have time to be creative. With all the social stresses and studying, leave room for FUN. Whether it be learn a new skill, journaling, or start playing an instrument - encourage creativity!

This has probably been included in ONE of your New Year's Resolution lists: Learn to play piano. Well, time to live vicariously through your children! Maybe your child will learn, and then turn around and teach you piano! This kit has everything you need to get started tickling those ivories.
Does your little one want to learn how to play a musical instrument this year?
Playing the violin is not only a way for children to be creative, but it also develops motor skills, sharpens memory, teaches perseverance and increases focus.
Resolution #5: Get hands-on
Lessons are more fun when you get your hands a little dirty. Take reading lessons outside, do a weekly science experiment, or try these STEM kits that arrive to you once a month (totally ready to go!!).
Take lessons outside with science experiments!
Resolution #6: Learn new tech skills
Your kids might already spend a lot of time in front of a screen, but is that screen time educational? Use those hours to learn new tech skills! If your kiddo is already a Minecrafter, consider using this program to build skills and add layers to the game!
