New DK Canada Books For Spring
If I had to list a specific fail I have in the parenting department it’d definitely be my crafting skills. It’s just never been something that I’m great at!
I can carry a tune decently, play a few songs on a few instruments, act on a stage or dance, but don’t ask me to make a paper airplane. It probably won’t fly. I’m serious, it’s embarrassing.
This is my biggest struggle as a homeschooling Mom. In fact, I wondered if I could even be a homeschool Mom due to my lack of craftiness! Thankfully, DK Canada has my back. DK Canada allows me to pretend to be crafty. Parenting win!
March is all about hands-on fun at DK Canada! Whether your child is interested in science experiments or knitting, new skills can be taught thanks to their many educational books! Here’s just a taste of what’s available!
