Is there anything more relaxing for kids than coloring?

Actually, is there anything more relaxing for people of ALL ages than coloring?

Relaxation is just one of the many benefits of coloring. Some others include improved focus, better hand-eye coordination, and a boost to creativity. No matter how you look at it, coloring is a valuable activity for any home, school, or homeschool.

Now if you’re looking for some materials for

How to (Try to) Print PDFs at Actual Size

How to Print PDFs at Actual Size

Sometimes it’s necessary, or at least valuable, to be able to print PDFs at their actual size.

This can be true for some homeschool or educational products. There may be flashcards, calendar pieces, or cards for hanging charts that would be more usable if they printed at an exact size. Flashcards, for example, that are 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches in size can fit inside of deck protector sleeves which make them last longer. However, if your printer doesn’t print the PDFs at the right size, they may not fit as well.

Fortunately, there are some settings you can tweak that can help

Streamline Your Homeschool Writing Assignments with Google Drive

Streamline Homeschool Writing Assignments with Google Drive

If you’re like most homeschoolers, you have LOTS of paper around.

That includes paper for crafts, handwriting paper, math worksheets, and notebook paper among others.

You probably have enough paper around to make several squadrons of paper airplanes, or maybe even several HUNDRED squadrons.

You could probably have a HUGE paper airplane fest at the end of every year with all of that paper. (That sounds like a fun end-of-year celebration. )

Anyway, if you’d like to REDUCE the amount of paper

Sites with Printable Incentive Charts

Incentive charts are one tool that you can use to motivate children to develop good habits or achieve goals. They can be used for a variety of things including behavior, music practice, chores, math facts practice, reading goals, and exercise.

(They can even be used for blogging with adults like me who need a little incentive to get blog posts written, a cup of cappuccino being the reward. Right?)

Below you’ll find a list of some sites that have

Character Building Resources

Character Building Resources

Good character.

Don’t you wish your kids were born with it?

You know, fresh out of the bag they come out singing and dancing the virtue song.

As soon as they are able to crawl they scrub the floors without being asked to.

When they learn to walk and talk, they start asking how they can help around the house.

They never fight with their siblings.

The Quickest Way to Open a Set of Bookmarks in Chrome

Quickest Way to Open Bookmarks in Chrome

If you’re like me, you bookmark a lot of websites.

By “a lot” I mean I have hundreds…easily.

I’ll probably never get a chance to open and read them all before I die so I hope I can take them with me to Heaven. Then I’ll have all of eternity to get caught up on reading blog posts.

But in the meantime, while I’m still here on Earth, I do have some favorite bookmarks in Chrome that I like to open up on a regular basis. Fortunately, there’s a way for me to

Fortunately, there are websites out there that offer resources such as videos, online activities, and printables that can help you out with teaching chemistry to your little

Common Tech Abbreviations to Teach Your Kids

Green Window Technology Concept Background

Does your PC have an HDD or SSD?

Do you prefer to watch videos in HD or SD?

How many CDs and DVDs do you have in your home?

Whether we like it or not, we live in a world of abbreviations, many of which are tied to our technology. Knowing what those tech abbreviations mean not only makes you look more intelligent to the Geek Squad, but also helps you to make better consumer choices. It’s like knowing about the parts of a car. Would you go shopping for a vehicle if you didn’t understand the difference between
