Show & Tell: The Book of Days

Showandtell_updated

Some days, it is the community of mothers in the blogging neighborhood that keep me going–that inspire me, that encourage me, that remind me about things that truly matter matter in life. They remind me to slow down, take note, to enjoy each moment of the day for what it may or may not be. And Stefani, of Blue Yonder is one of those people. Her blog is full of inspiration, honesty and some downright funny tales from her life raising three young men in Texas.

The Book of Days

This year Stefani launched a new project called the Book of Days. It is a monthly journal that she keeps with her children and now shares with all of us. Stefani describes the Book of Days:

The Book of Days is a monthly journal of mindful experiences,
natural pursuits, yummy recipes, and science experiments. It is meant
to be a simple way to make family time fun.

Each edition comes with illustrated pages to download, print and put
in your own binder. You can make one for each child, or just make one
big family book. The Book of Days is geared toward families with
children ranging in age from 3 to 12, but could be adapted to suit
older or younger kids.

The book also comes with a detailed Parent Field Guide that provides
seasonal reading lists, ways to expand each month’s activities, and
ideas for slowing down and holding onto the magic of each day of the
year. The activities are simple and only require easy-to-find supplies
that you may already have at home. However, with the added suggestions
in the Parent Field Guide, each section can be expanded to provide
several days of fun and learning. 

I can speak from experience that the book of days is a great way to mark time with your children. It is brimming with simple, fun ideas and is a wonderful way to capture your days.

And Stefani is offering one of you the chance to win a year's subscription to the Book of Days. Each month you'll be sent a link and code to download your free copy to print and use! Thank you, Stefani.

You can read more about the book of days, here at the Blue Yonder Ranch online shop . You can also see the book of days in action in the flickr group.

You know the drill….leave a comment for your chance to win. All winners from this week's giveaways will be announced on Saturday, February 14th.

  1. I have not tried her Book of Days yet. Although, I;ve been thinking about it. I think I need to learn to slow down and cherish these childhood moments. For some of my kids they are almost gone.

  2. I love things that help us remember to take time and enjoy our kids. This would be great to win. Thanks for the chance.

  12. wait, did I already comment just now? I think there was user error – I was just saying that I so love this and would love to add my name to the list.

  13. I found my way to you from Stefani. I’m so glad I did. Of course, I would love to win, but I already count myself a winner in “discovering” you. I’ll be around. Thanks again, for the chance to win.
