Simple Kids Giveaway

We’re celebrating the big changes going on at Simple Living Media this week with a Giveaway! Each blog in the SLM family has a fabulous prize package with ONE lucky winner per blog.  Each of you will have up to two chances to win per blog.  Updated: make that THREE chances to win!

This Giveaway is now closed.  Thank you for entering!
Check back for a winner soon.

I’m so excited that a Simple Kids reader is going to win prizes from:

1. Blue Yonder Ranch

Stefani of Blue Yonder Ranch is also a contributor to Simple Homeschool.  She has written a fun and engaging series of ebooks based on the seasons“Food For Families: Food For Thought” is the motto of the Book of Days.

Readers are treated to inspiration for creating together, seasonal experiments, recipes, and encouragement to reach out and make a difference.  Each issue is chock full of ideas for families who are interested in slowing down and spending time together learning, playing, and enjoying nature.

As the video on the Blue Yonder website says, these days do not last forever … but the memories will. I am confident that the winner of these ebooks will be so pleased with the ideas and possibilities they hold.

The winner will receive a Subscription to the Book Of Days.



2. Hearth Song

Hearth Song‘s motto is “toys you’ll feel good about giving” but I think you’ll agree with me that their Multi-Play Soccer Station would be pretty nice to receive!  More than just a soccer goal, this station includes a target net so your little super stars can practice their aiming and trapping skills.

This versatile set could be used for football practice, too.  The Hearth Song website suggests it would be great for baseball pitching practice and also for bean bag toss games.  Kids will love playing with the Soccer Station:  parents will love that it is a product that can store away simply in its own carrying bag. For ages three and up, it  comes with the carrying bag, soccer ball, stakes, and pump (adult assembly required).

The winner will receive a Multi-Play Soccer Station.

3. SouleMama

Amanda Blake Soule is one of my favorite authors and is probably one of yours, too.  Her blog is inspiring and her writing has influenced my family in many ways, including handwork ideas, family art time, and practical tips on creating magical moments in childhood.

Her books are so beloved in my house that I’m not sure they have ever actually been on the bookshelf – they are always in use! Amanda has generously offered to give copies of both of her books to a Simple Kids reader so that they can become well-loved and used often in your home, too.

The winner will receive a copy of The Creative Family and Handmade Home.
