Educational Insights $50 Gift Card Giveaway!

Hi everyone! Well, I’m sure a lot of you are gearing up for next year already, and I have a great giveaway today to help get your homeschool stocked and ready for next year! It’s been a little while since I’ve done a giveaway for Educational insights, so I’m hosting a $50 gift card giveaway for one of you!

Need some ideas on what to grab if you win? Here are some of my favorites!

The GeoSafari Dino Dig kits come with everything you need to perform a “life like” excavation of dinosaur fossils. Each kit includes fossils encased in a clay block, an excavation tool, a brush, and a wax block (used to hold the fossil pieces together once completed), and a detailed instruction booklet with more ideas and information. (Just as a side note, these books are written with a secular world view)




Grammar 500 Game. Grammar 500 is a fun, educational game that covers 100 grammar, punctuation, and capitalization questions.



Phonics Bean Bags:  These are really fun double sided bean bags. One side has short vowels and the other has long, the set also includes c and g to show hard and soft sounds. There are 26 bean bags total and the feature cute embroidered images on each bag. They come with a draw-string storage bag and the best part in my opinion…they’re washable! Hooray!



GeoSafari® Tuff Cam! I was pleasantly surprised by the quality from the GeoSafari® Tuff Cam. It is a 12 Megapixel camera with both photo and video capabilities. It has a 2” viewing screen, and frankly whoever came up with the design is a genius! It looks like a store scanner, and for kids its PERFECT!


Need some more ideas?
Here are just a few of my favorite things from Educational Insights! The best part is you can get whatever you want, and lots of it with a $50 Gift Card!
