2014 Holiday Gift Guide Desert Dwellers Flash Cards (Stocking Stuffers) Plus Giveaway #HGG

I was provided the below mentioned product in exchange for this post. 

     I am always looking for good stocking stuffers that are more than just trinket toys that break or never get played with past Christmas morning.  I was recently sent the Julie Originals Desert Dwellers Flash Card set for the Holiday Gift Guide.

     The Desert Dwellers Flash Card set are a great way to learn about desert animals while learning the ABC's.  Each card has colorful paintings of the Southwest's amazing animals by artist Julie Rustad.  Each card contains interesting facts and stories about the desert dwellers.  Each card has information about the animals habitat, food, predators, size, weight, life span, and active times. These cards are great for toddlers to school age and beyond.  Flash cards are fun and can be used in many different ways to help with learning.


     The cards are large and made from thick card stock and laminate.  They are durable and will last a long time.  The set comes with a learning activities card that gives 5 activities that the cards can be used for as a start.  There are so many ways to use these cards.  I love that my boys will be able to learn about the environment we live in and what is around us.  These cards are great for those living in the Southwest, but also anyone not living here to learn what is not in their environment.  I look forward to my boys opening their stockings and finding these cards.  I know we will have fun while learning with these.

     On the website there is even a teacher's guide to Desert Dwellers.  It gives teachers suggestions for using the cards in the classroom.  Their website also has calendars, prints, note cards, posters, and more.

  1. Helps businesses and startups with their branding and business .

  2. I learned that Julie is a mom that like to paint and I love the these products are so colorful.

  3. That they help businesses and startups with their branding and business .

  4. Love the coloring pages they have!

  5. That Julie loves for her family to just get back to basics – creating art, playing Legos and making music with our band The Nap Skippers. I hope my flash cards fit right in with that mindset: a slower pace, quality time, and definitely no batteries!

  6. I learned that they are sold at Barnes & noble.
