Resources

If you've ever wondered where to find a great prism, letter blocks, gear set, or model animals, you're in the right place! Here you will find my favorite resources and materials for each of the courses I've written.

Each of my courses feature oh-so fun activities, experiments, and crafts that are designed to be easy on mom. You'll find a handy materials list at the front of each course.

Most activities utilize things you likely already have on hand -- but there are a few exceptions. I've included my recommendations for these items in each course below.
