Back to School with Hearth & Hand With Magnolia at Target

I admit, even a month out, I’m pretty excited for back to school. I was able to go online at Target, enter in my children’s schools and have the contents of their school supply lists delivered right to the house without having to search the store for each item in all the required colors and quantities… game changer!

But even if you’re not ready to get back to school just yet or if your kids aren’t old enough yet, the Hearth & Hand with Magnolia collection at Target has plenty of lovely “old school” items to help get you in the mood. I’ve included my affiliate links to find the products.

For the wall, consider the hanging Periodic Table, Constellations, or Earth Map. $15 each
The Pivot World Globe is also super cute and a great modern decor piece for a nursery. $35

These beautiful wooden puzzles are must-haves at $28.

The Chalk Board Ruler Growth Chart is really something to consider, and the Line Chalk Board is going to be a favorite addition to your home school, pretend play area or just homework zone.

I can smell those autumn leaves and chalkboard dust already, can’t you?

Interactive Playsets from Corby Tindersticks

I take pride in being familiar with the products in most nurseries and being able to find them quickly online, but I admit that I had trouble finding the items on Gabriel’s rug

Gabriel's Rug

I recognized the doll as being from Corby Tindersticks and assumed the orange pieces were as well, but couldn’t find them anywhere… until today! I happened to be browsing Milk Moostache, of one of our lovely advertisers, and BAM! There it was!

It’s the Interactive Road Atlas from Corby Tindersticks! $60

And if this cute little set isn’t enough, how about the Interactive World Weather Map?

And the Interactive Clock too! It’s not too soon to start shopping for the holidays- hint, hint.

Fun, right?

Marvelous Maps: USA

For some reason we usually feature world maps here on the blog, but a beautiful map of the United States can be treasured in the American home.  Local geography is just as important as the global version.  In preparation for the 4th of July this week, here are a few of my favorite educational versions for your child’s walls.

From Urban Tickle, this patriotic red, white and blue version comes as a 24″ x 36″ poster, canvas or jumbo canvas.

The Pixel Prince has a few different US map designs but my favorite is the cute art print with illustrated details throughout.

The USA Children Map from Vassi Slavova is perfectly simple and straightforward with easy to use colors.

Children Inspire Design is famous for their map prints and my favorite US map from them is this labeled My Travels Personalized Wall Map Print.

Petit Collage recently released this new fabric wall decal of the U.S.A.  I suspect (hope) this might show up in one of my nephew’s rooms soon.

Finally, by Jon Cannell, this Grand Canvas Map Banner is a unique print on a natural canvas banner.

For more tangram fun, I highly recommend Tangoes Jr. for your toddlers and preschoolers.  It’s excellent because the shapes are magnetic and everything fits into the hard plastic case.  We’ve had this for years and it’s still fun!
