To My Readers...Mahalo!


Happy day before Thanksgiving! 
I have been busy cleaning my house and shopping for tomorrow but had enough time to check my email this morning.  I received a message from a reader who won the Sight Words DVD a few weeks ago.  It was so sweet that I thought I would share:

"Mom's Best Bets, the brilliant news is that the amazing Sight Words DVD from Rock N Learn just arrived this morning to Dylan's wondrous surprise! : ) He is so enjoying this fabulous DVD in the most magical of ways, and I wish you could see his eyes light up for the love of learning. It is truly wonderful!  : )

Thanks so very much for all the true to heart magic you create with 
Moms Best Bets, Patrice : )

Wishing you a truly dazzling weekend...creative adventures and all!

With lots of love,
Leah and D.
 "

Creating a Thankful Tree Calendar with your Family

Looking for a the Pottery Barn Kids Thanksgiving Tree Countdown Calendar?
Well, it's sold out but we made our own!

This is our Thanksgiving tree. We made it to include 14 thankful thoughts before Thanksgiving.  
It was pretty easy to cut the tree out of construction paper.  Then I drew some leaves out of recycled old paper and helped my daughter cut them out.  She added the numbers 1-14 and we pasted them on to make pockets.  Finally, we cut up a white sheet of paper and put a slip in each leaf pocket that we could write out thoughts on each day.  
It was a fun project that helped to get everyone thinking about how blessed they are.  God is good!

Making Autumn Leaves with Kids

Living in Hawaii means no beautiful falling colorful leaves to look at but I'm not complaining because we made our own!


Here's how:
*Cut out leaves (you can use a template) on different fall colored construction paper
*Paint them with acrylic washable paint (until they are wet) and lay them to dry on a flat surface
*Add some glitter paint or vein detail with a small brush 
*Find a branch with some character for you to stick the leaves on

Best Holiday Photo Cards at Minted.com

Striped Joy Holiday Photo Cards

Minted is a global community of independent graphic designers and an online store that prints and sells the best of their designs in the form of paper goods.

I have been having so much fun picking out our Holiday Card using Minted.com.
There are so many to choose from that I have literally tried our photos ion each unique design.  
If you're like me, then choosing only one photo can be a difficult task.  Never fear, Minted.com offers cards that not only have the collage feature but also have an added option on the inside of the folded cards where you can add a personal message and more pictures.




I love their year line option and their storyboard ideas.  It really allows you to make up for all of the pictures and events throughout the year that you haven't shared with your family and friends.  Now, it's a whole lot easier and beautiful!



One of my friends who is a fabulous photographer is featured with her family all over the site. I knew instantly that this was the right place to order my Christmas cards since she has great taste and her card last year was my favorite. The paper is thick and lovely and the picture quality was bright and perfect. I am so excited to get my cards. As soon as I do I will be gushing...oh, I mean blogging about it!
In the meantime, start early and check out holiday cards at Minted.com.

Want to be impressed or to impress a love one with an amazing and touching gift?  Novica is the place to shop.  
I have always had a passion for travelling and studying different cultures. I also love to buy gifts from different places that you cannot just buy at your local mall. A vase from India or a handmade bracelet from Sri Lanka is much more than a thing of beauty. It means more because there is a culture and a story behind the piece. It's not just a mass produced item that we are used to buying. This is why I am head over heels for shopping at Novica. They give artists and artisans around the world a global platform to express their true artistic talents and to spur their creativity.
Once you visit this website, I'm sure you too will fall in love with the merchandise, artist's stories, and unique gifts available. You will have access to unique, hard-to-find items at great values.
Here are 2 items from their vast jewelry department that I found to make perfect gifts.
Black Onyx Necklace

Kai Kittima showcases the black luxurious luster of onyx in the design of this necklace. She crafts it by hand with onyx square and round beads, as well as a sterling silver clasp with a hammered finish. 

.925 Sterling silver

An artisan story card will be included with your purchase. 
Buy it here for 52.00

Carnelian beaded necklace, 'Tribal Paths'



Click to view a larger picture
Chuleekorn designs a beautiful necklace that glistens with tribal chic. The necklace is crocheted by hand with brown, orange and gray threads hosting dyed orange quartz. These are followed by dyed blue resin beads and carnelians. The necklace's length can be adjusted.
An artisan story card will be included with your purchase. Buy Here for 54.95



My sister will just be love the handmade box the necklace comes in and the handwritten note attached. The necklace is well made and for 52.00, it's a deal!  The second carnelian necklace I might keep because it's just so different with many contrasting beautiful colors.   I have worn it once and got a lot of compliments.

National Geographic Rocks & Minerals Science Kit Review

Crystals, Rocks & Minerals


Geology, Mineralogy, and Crystal Growing will make a fabulous Holiday gift for your budding scientist. It is recommended for ages 8 and up, but I tried it out with my 6 year old. It definitely is for an older child due to the safety precautions working with chemicals. But, it's really cool! 



Because my daughter was young we had top take our time and I had to do a lot of it, but she loved every minute. There is something about science kits that fascinate kids and they really are more engaging than a lot of toys out there. Perfect for boys and girls around age 8 and up!  National Geographic, thames and kosmos, has many kits for various interests and ages! Check them out here.


More about the kit:
Learn about rocks and the minerals that form them. Dig deeper, and discover the fascinating crystal structures of these minerals. Much more than just a crystal growing kit, this experiment kit teaches you the chemistry of crystals and the geological science behind rock formation with more than 18 hands-on projects and investigations.

Grow three chemically different types of crystals that exhibit not only different colors, but also different crystal shapes. Build three-dimensional geometric models of common crystals shapes including octahedrons, tetrahedrons, and rhomboids. Mold your own crystal geode — a hollow rock with crystals growing inside!

Learn how to test and identify minerals with your very own collection of real specimen included in the kit. Conduct tests to determine a mineral’s chemical and physical properties such as color, luster, streak color, hardness, density, magnetic properties, and carbon, sulfur, or iron content.

Full-color, 32-page experiment manual. Ages 8 and up.

 


I also love their Environmental Science Kit
 This science kit gives you the tools and information to learn firsthand about the environmental problems burdening our planet and how we as a civilization can overcome these problems through sustainable practices and the sensible use of technology.

Learning Addition & Subtraction Facts to Music




Learning math facts doesn't have to be dull! Now students can "rock out" while they learn addition and subtraction. Upbeat rock music, energetic performers, and colorful action make these super-cool songs favorites with kids of all ages. As they sing along to these "add and subtract tunes," kids quickly learn sums up to 18 and differences from 18.
Ages 6 & up. Approx. 40 minutes.


Rock N Learn makes learning easy and fun now for parents and their children. My daughter sometimes watches shows on the go, especially when we are in the car for a long commute.  It's such a relief that she has the opportunity to learn math facts in the car in a fun way.  After a few weeks she has memorized most of her double addition facts and is pretty fast at calculating her subtraction facts thanks to Addition & Subtraction Rock.  


Addition & Subtraction Rock is ideal for developing speed and accuracy for beginning learners as well as older kids.  The delayed answers also gives her a chance to mentally figure out the problem.


Rock N Learn has also given Mom's Best Bets a coupon code when you make your purchase:
COUPON CODE: Use JQ7711 for 25% off your entire purchase!!!
