Did you know that this coming Saturday (11/30) is “Small Business Saturday?” We are so thankful for small businesses – some of the best products I have found with which to shepherd my child have come from small businesses! I wanted to highlight some of the small businesses that have created exceptional products for your little ones – consider supporting them this week as we head into a big shopping season for the holidays! Some of them even have coupon codes/discounts running through this Saturday that I will highlight below:
If you’ve been visiting this blog for a while, you know how much I love Monkisee! The very first “product” I used with my son (when he was 10 months old) came from Monkisee. The creator, Krista Guerrero, has developed a whole line of educational products for your little ones and she just recently launched a Storytime series that focuses on Bible stories! The first video, “How God Made Everything” is great! We have loved learning about the story of creation through this video. Monkisee is currently running a promotion through 11/30/13 – use code MS25%OFF at checkout to create your own sale and save 25% off your entire purchase of regularly priced items. Find your Monkisee items at www.monkisee.com.
We love Grapevine Studies at our house – we’ve already been through several of the Bible Study lessons and I recently ordered “The Birth of Jesus” traceable to use with my 4 year old son this Advent season. In fact, “The Birth of Jesus” studies are on sale this month (November). Here is the link to order “The Birth of Jesus” products which are discounted through 11/30/13: Grapevine Studies Monthly Special. Also, here is their website: www.grapevinestudies.com.
The Christmas Angel
This is a great product to help teach your little ones about the true meaning of Christmas. The product helps you focus on “giving” to others each day of the holiday season. They have a new “angel” this 2013 holiday season – a boy angel (so excited about this since we don’t have any little girls in our family!) Find out more at The Christmas Angel website: www.yourchristmasangel.com.
Shepherd My Child
We’re running our own promotion through 11/30/13 on our Scripture and Prayer cards. Use code THANKSGIVING2013 to receive 10% off your order at our Etsy store. These Scripture and Prayer cards make great stocking stuffers and purposeful Christmas gifts for your little ones, so stock up now while we are offering a discount!
Seeds Family Worship
The CD’s created by Seeds Family Worship puts Scripture to music in a lively, fun way that kids enjoy. We have two of the CD’s (Seeds of Courage and Seeds of Faith) and my son loves them. I also love that with every order you receive two CD’s, so that you can share one with a friend! Find out more on their website: www.seedsfamilyworship.com.
Songs for Saplings
These CD’s are great – they basically put the catechisms to music! The music is adapted from Scripture and from classic works meant to teach children the deep and wonderful things taught in the Bible. We have the first “Question and Answers” CD (about God and creation) and have really loved it. There are 6 Q&A CD’s as well as an A,B,C and 1,2,3 CD. Check them out at their website: http://songsforsaplings.com/
