The Week Ahead: My Summer Picks

My Summer Picks:

Library Programs for Broward and Palm Beach Counties

Library Balloon Show at Boca Raton LibraryYour local library is the best place to get out of the summer heat for an special activity.  We are so blessed here in South Florida with some really amazing libraries that offer kids shows, demonstrations, play areas, and incredible learning opportunities! Click Here for links to many of my favorite libraries from Broward and Palm Beach!

If you are trying to keep your kid reading this summer, then this is the one book for you.  You can borrow books from the library for free without ever leaving your house and the kids can simply touch a word they don’t understand and get the definition without disrupting their story time! Click Here to learn why you should get a Kindle (the black and white one like the PaperWhite, not the Kindle Fire)

Kids Bowl Free

Learn something new, like piano.

There is an App for that!
pianomarvelI am a geek, I know! I have been obsessed with all things educational & technological! So what about Piano Lessons? Yup, There’s an app for that too! Piano Marvel is a completely online piano course that uses a midi interface with your piano to give you instant feedback on what you know! I have been using it to brush up on my extremely old skills and to supplement my child’s lessons! I am LOVING IT! I also negotiated a Coupon Code for you try it for free! If you buy a subscription you will get a discount too! You won’t believe what you get for about a quarter of the price of piano lessons!

Be a Circus Star!

Circus of the kids will be here in South Florida to help inspire kids.  Campers will spend the week learning circus skills and learning to trust their own ability to succeed.  Sign your kids up for this life changing program or just bring the family to the shows.
