Wanna know how crazy I am? I’m doing home-school preschool with my two-and-a-half year old just after having a newborn. I’ll tell you more about that in another post.
The cool thing is, at the preschool age, kids learn from pretty much anything… all you have to do is make it authentic! Since we just had a new baby, there were lots of gifts arriving at the house. Even some for big brother!
Ding-ding-ding! Teachable moment! Time to get out the craft supplies and create thank-you cards!
Think about all he learned from that simple activity:
- Social skills / Communication
- Art / Drawing
- Motor Skills (applying stickers)
Our son had a blast creating thank-you cards (which included space ships, hand tracings, “smoke” (from the spaceships) and trucks!) using art supplies from Green Apple Supply!
I especially love the Stick Crayons, because they have a point at both ends! And the Neopolitan paper is scrumptious with its marbled ice-cream tones! The Jungle Vine Colored Pencils are a bit gnarly – made with real wood/vine – kids will think they are awesome!
Green Apple Supply was founded to make eco-friendly products available at mass market prices. It’s a non-profict company with deep discounts on a range of school supplies, home products and gifts. Their prices are so low I was shocked – those cool Jungle Vine Colored Pencils? Just $2.00! Now isn’t that a great gift for a kid to get back to school with (or… stocking stuffer!).
Stephanie Tobor created Green Apple Supply from a personal belief that safe household products should not be a luxury. She began a search for alternatives to harsh chemical products on the market to improve her family’s health. Discovering how expensive and misleading many products are, she created Green Apple Supply as a non-profit source for economical “green” home, office, and school supplies.
Now Green Apple Supply sells home essentials and gift items often 50 to 60% less than traditional retail products. Find BPA-free and PVC-free sandwich bags, plant-based paints, biodegradable calculators, banana paper journals and more for just slightly over cost!
