Product Review – Melissa & Doug Magnetic Calendar & *$50 GIVEAWAY*

CSN Stores has over 200 online stores where you can find everything from dinnerware to camera accessories to educational resources and toys!
I have had the opportunity to review several products for them, so this is the first of the items that I received.
They have also graciously offered to host a giveaway for a $50 gift certificate to ANYTHING they carry! It seems like there’s a little bit of everything there, so I’m sure you can find something you would love.
I got this Melissa & Doug Magnetic Calendar to use with Kahlen, she loves it! It’s been really helpful to give her a basic understanding of calendars, such as what day is today, what month is it, how long it is until something happens, and so much more! I like all the tiles that came with it and I think that if I really wanted to change some of them it would be easy with a bit of Mod Podge and clip art.
Here’s Kahlen setting it up right after we got it:
2010-05-07 Melissa & Doug Calendar (1)
I hung it on the wall near our new school area, so we look at it and talk about it when we do school. Unfortunately, it’s in the basement, so July we didn’t do much with it.
2010-06-04 Zoo Animals Week 1 Day 1 (3)Our favorite part is the weather tiles. There’s sunny, cloudy, rainy, windy, and snowy. We both enjoy this part because then there’s something to do everyday.
I think when we start school again in September, this will be extremely useful and I’m very grateful to CSN for providing the opportunity to review such a great product
Products reviewed were provided to me free of charge. No compensation was given in exchange for this review. My opinion is my own and is an honest view of my experience with the product.

I have my heart set on the yellow sunshine deluxe party kit for my daughter's birthday party next month! We just moved away from our family and friends so as a consolation, I promised her a big birthday bash!

I did not see country rules on this, so I will try my luck, if Canadians are out, please leave me out :( I would get school supplies even though we homeschool we use masses of markers, scissors, notebooks ect. My kids love the ritual of getting the stuff in September and I would love to get it from CNS this year :)
