Educational Deals for Spring Break – Part I

Happy Spring (sorry to those of you on the east coast dealing with snow)! Although it doesn’t look or feel like spring here (yet!) the signs are definitely here – including my kids’ favorite robin returning to rebuild her nest (we got to see the babies last year)! If you are a teacher I am sure you are relishing the fact that Spring Break is almost here, but if you are a parent your anxiety over dealing with “I’m bored” thousands of times a day has probably already begun. Here are some great deals for items you can stash away and pull out as needed during Spring Break. Be sure to check the rest of our site for great resources including printables and ideas for activities to do with your kids – they are all FREE!

Little Laureate

Heather Maclean, the founder and president of Little Laureate, was excited by the idea of educational media for kids, but not thrilled with what she found available.

She says, “Our mission at Little Laureate is to create small, magical moments for kids and their caregivers.” Zulily is now featuring 3 sets for up to 65% off! Check them out here!
