Each month there are some wonderful companies working behind the scenes with us and each offers a variety of products you will love! Below you’ll find some special coupon codes from these companies along information about upcoming reviews and giveaways that you don’t want to miss!



Our family has used various products from Apologia over the years, and this year we are using a range from elementary writing through high school science. Over the course of the year we will be sharing our thoughts on some of their newer curriculum. It is so exciting to see their company expanding into writing and literature curriculum along with complete science and worldview curriculum.

Heirloom Audio Productions

Heirloom Audio dramas

Heirloom Audio has fast become one of our favorite audio adventures to pop in at home or in the car. Combining historical learning with fast-paced adventure makes for an amazingly wonderful learning tool for the entire family. We have listened (and relistened) to all five of their dramas and highly recommend them. Their NEWEST adventure, The Cat of Bubastes, has been released and it is equally as good as the first five! 

Recently I shared about the 5 Reasons We Recommend Heirloom Audio, but wanted to remind you all of a special they have for my readers. Each audio drama is usually $29.97, but you can order a four audio adventure set (two of each drama) – one set for your family and one set to give away at a HUGE savings. In the past we’ve ordered together with a friend, making the deal only $10 for each CD set. You will also receive several bonus items, including teaching guides and soundtracks for each adventure. 

Kwik Stix


If messy painting drives you nuts, Kwik Stix Solid Tempera Paint sticks will take the mess out of painting while keeping all the fun! Simply uncap, twist, and paint! Kwik Stix have a fast drying formula that allow them to dry in 90 seconds while still leaving a paint-like finish! No cups, smocks, water or brushes required. Kwik Stix come in assorted vibrant colors with coverage that won’t crack. Great on poster paper, cardboard, wood and canvas.
