Bored Kiddos?

Balloon BundleWe’re all struggling to keep the kids entertained while juggling this new normal. Between working the frontlines, working from home, the stress of not working at all, going about our regular day-to-day lives as best we can AND adjusting to distance learning or no school at all, most of us are just trying to stay afloat.  And of course this can lead to boredom and a little craziness for you and the kids. So, while supplies last, I’m introducing the NEW Write Your Balloon companion writing journal to the award winning, Eli’s Balloon storybook.

Available while supplies last and ONLY with the Balloon Activity Bundle the companion journal offers writing activities to go along with the storybook and stretch your child’s imagination. But writing’s not all they can do. This companion journal offers drawing opportunities as well as independent creative activities. Yes–INDEPENDENT! Use it as a learning tool or just for fun. The possibilities are endless.

Included in the bundle is the paperback edition of the storybook along with the coloring book, which offers a chance for kids to color images straight from the story! Who wouldn’t love putting their own twist on a favorite character from a story?

This offer is only available while supplies last for a flat rate of $22.00, which includes taxes and shipping. That’s a savings of over 20%!
