    If you're looking for a gift for an artsy little one – boom! - here it is. Packaged in a space-saving tube, you'll find a good-quality, plain canvas smock, 8 chubby short-handled brushes in a variety of sizes, and three nesting paint or water cups with lids. I love the thickness of the natural canvas smock, and it includes stitched pockets to hold all of the brushes in the front as well. Young artists can use it as-is, or paint their own custom design on the smock. Just add some tempera paints and paper and they'll be all set. – Jess

    So, you're writing stories in English class, and your reluctant writer is whiny and reticent. "Why do we have to write stories? I can't think of anything!" If you can't get them out of their writing slump by suggesting "Well, let's brainstorm," or "Look around you for ideas," just say (with a twinkle in your eye) - "Forget it, let's just play a game instead." Of course, five or ten minutes later they'll realize they're not getting off the story-writing hook, but they'll probably be enjoying themselves so much they'll forget to pout. The game format is similar to most board games your family plays, with a large board featuring a wandering path from beginning to end. Besides a die, scoring pad and markers, the game features eight decks of story element cards and a story outline pad. Basically, as players move along the board, they will collect specific story element cards, and weave them into a story. Card decks are clearly labeled and include topic sentence, plot, character, setting, description, dialogue, lesson, and resolution cards. At the beginning of the game, each player receives a topic sentence. This is the only topic sentence card they will receive, and should be used towards the beginning of the story. As they roll the die, they will land on spaces labeled with the names of corresponding story element cards, and will draw the top card from the stack. By the end of the game, they should have at least one of each element card, and at least five description cards. Then, the writing begins! Choosing from their collected cards, the writer decides which cards he wants to incorporate into his or her story, and writes them onto the outline sheet. The outline begins with the topic sentence, and features blanks to fill in for each part of the story. Under "Setting", they must determine the "where", "when" and descriptors. Under character, they must identify the good guys and the bad guys, and describe both. For the plot, they must identify the problem, and decide on the order of events. Under "Resolution" and "Lesson", they will decide how the "Resolution" and "Lesson" cards they chose relate to their story, and how it all wraps up. Now, players each have a good framework for a story; the trick is now fleshing it out into an actual short story, which may be easier at this point, since a lot of the "unknowns" have been identified. A scoring sheet will help Mom decide if the story included all the necessary components, and will inspire kids not to skimp on the "less exciting" stuff. Since inventing characters, conflicts and settings sometimes takes a lot of steam out of even the more enthused young writers, I would imagine that taking that pressure off of them in this way would free up their imaginations to write a much more well-rounded, exciting story. I'll bet that even Mom and Dad will want to play this one! - Jess

    If you can train yourself in the habit, keeping a nature journal offers not only the opportunity to continually hone artistic skills, but also provides ample opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, develop a deeper appreciation for nature, enhance penmanship and writing abilities and become a precious keepsake for years to come. This guide takes students lesson-by-lesson through developing their own nature journal and building the skills they'll need to capture examples of nature's beauty. Created by Barry Stebbing, author of the How Great Thou Art courses, these lessons are formatted similarly with short, easy-to-read lessons and a related assignment. There are 47 lessons total, the first segment focusing on assignments that can be done in the classroom, and later assignments which students will get to head outdoors to do. Lessons include designing the journal cover; learning how to appropriately frame the page; creating various tones in green and brown, and drawing specific objects or scenes such as onions, vines or tree trunks, landscapes, night scenes, farm animals, feathers, insects and much more. The lessons are illustrated with a variety of related drawings (both color and black-and-white) by Barry, some of which serve as examples to copy, and others to provide inspiration or examples for students' own drawing. The last piece of the book provides several blank journal pages with lines, a space for an inspiring quote and blank areas for drawing. You'll need a few specific supplies to complete the lessons, including a hardbound journal, a legal pad, a rubber band, colored pencils, a drawing pen, a writing pen, glue stick, tape, washable markers, a #6 watercolor brush (to use with the markers) and semi-gloss paper. Especially if you're not already emphasizing art in your curriculum, a course in nature journaling can provide your students a rewarding, creative tie-in to your science, English or even handwriting program – and get them outdoors to enjoy that sunshine! – Jess

    We're tired of drawing those x,y axis lines on graph paper! Now, it'll be easy with our newfound rubber stamp. Children can stamp right on their work paper - no need for a separate sheet of graph paper. Stamp features a 144-block grid with central x/y axis, has a large, easy-grip handle and measures 3" x 3". The size makes it a bit large for a traditionally-sized stamp pad. It will work well with a jumbo stamp pad, such as the large black ink pad below.

    Although I tested this pad with juicy markers and watercolor paints and didn't see any bleed-through, the real test was when I pulled this out for my two-year-old to paint on! Although there was plenty of water involved, the paper stood up to it! A perfect, inexpensive pad for "little guys" just learning how to paint. The paper is a nice bright white, and is 9" x 12."

    Harness the amazing wall-climbing power of the Gecko! This kit can create a wide variety of robots, all centering around suction cups. The primary build, the Geckobot, can easily walk straight up any smooth, vertical surface (such as glass windows, plastic, whiteboards, or smooth drywall using the four included suction cups. Such movement is made possible with a combination of motors and air pumps, built into the Geckobot during construction. The 24-page, fully-illustrated manual teaches kids all about suction power and includes instructions for the Geckobot and 6 other experiment builds: an industrial robotic suction arm, suction tow truck, suction gun for picking up light objects, crawling inchworm, smartphone holder, and an ellipsograph that draws near-perfect circles. Other materials needed are AAA batteries for the motor and air pump, scissors, and other routine household materials. The Geckobot kit includes 176 pieces, with four suction cup pads, and is compatible with other Thames and Kosmos kits.
