Kid goodies giveaway: Win a $100 shopping spree at Educational Warehouse



There are a handful of sites that I think have a good variety of stuff for kids; Educational Warehouse is one of them. It has arts and crafts kits and supplies, software, books, puzzles, stickers, kids' gear and more. Plus you can search for stuff by grade, age, price, brand—pretty much every category except "Stuff that won't bore my kid after five minutes."

They also sell those great watch-an-insect grow kits. We successfully tried the butterfly one last year, but I just got the kids Ladybug Land and noticed tonight that the last ladybug had kicked the bucket. Which means that I am now a ladybug killer, besides already being a goldfish killer, and critter sites around the web are going to start featuring "Wanted" posters of me. Above, the kit I have my eye on because it looks like fun to paint and we're all fascinated by birds in this family and I don't think I will harm any birds with it.

Educational Warehouse is offering up a $100 shopping spree to one of you, plus free shipping. To enter, just leave a comment below about the kind of stuff your kid most loves playing with lately. Max is obsessed with toy trucks, Sabrina with Barbies. They are such cliches, my kids.

Note, you must leave your e-mail if yours isn't on your blog, or you will not be able to win. Not even some not-alive ladybugs.

BONUS entries: After you leave your main comment, you can leave a separate one for each of the following that you have done:

Update: The winner is Kim! Enjoy.

  1. I do love a giveaway! My daughter loves anything textured or that vibrates. She also loves beads and music. My older boy is very active right now and sadly not as into toys as he once was, but he does like science and craft kits. My eight year old still loves his action figures, soldiers and such, and he loves to draw comics.

  3. Gabriella LOVES worms right now? We're in the middle of doing a huge landscape project in our backyard and there are many of them around and apparently they're the next best thing to bunnies (her other favorite as of now). Yuk- I know, but hey, it's surprising what you can teach a three year old about just from worms. Life cycles, sustainability, empathy... :) Thanks for the giveaway opportunity Ellen.
