Though there are only a few days left before Christmas, it's never too late to do Christmas crafting and creating memories with your little ones.

Hang those little stockings and let you and your kids play your imaginations on creating the most wonderful Christmas stockings you can with Creativebug's class. 

In this class, you will learn on how to create large scale felt projects using the Cricut Maker, personalize text in the Cricut Design Space, protect your cutting mat when using felt fabrics, and assemble stocking with sewing machine.


"One of my most cherished Christmas memories is making stockings with my mother and siblings. I remember my mother helping me hold the glue gun, while I applied felt details and indulged in my love of glitter (much to her dismay). Creativebug's latest class with Amber of Damask Love reminds me of these memories and is the perfect class for families and friends looking to create Christmas memories with crafting." - Allison, Creativebug

Fast Answers With Homework Helper App

Everywhere I go, everywhere I look I see electronic devices being used. There are electronic advertisements, electronic gadgets taking down your orders and electronic payment registers at cafes and restaurants, and of course, smartphones, iPhones, etc. Small businesses and big businesses are all using high-tech devices. Young and old are also using smartphones, iPads or tablets. Young toddlers are also on iPads or tablets to keep them occupied while their parents do their own thing. Everyone is caught up with these high-tech devices that makes everything fast and instant. 

Education is also affected by high-techs. Even schools and parents are taking advantage of these high-tech apps to help in educating their children. I know of a family with a 2 year old toddler. The parents are too busy working and left the toddler in the care of a live-in foreign maid. Most of the child’s waking time were spent with the iPad in front of him. The child learned words picked up from the children’s programs or educational programs that he watches with the iPad.


New education apps are being designed and introduced to the world and parents are looking to these apps to help with their children’s education. Top iTunes learning app is available to be downloaded to the electronic device to help their children with their homework and is claimed to help them better their grades. Education apps developers are competing with one another to come up with better apps to attract and persuade parents to subscribe to these apps as an online tutor or stand in as parents. 

As words get around, more and more busy parents are turning to the Google Play homework helper add to help connect their children with their homework. These apps are convenient because most parents do not have all the answers to help their children, whereas with the homework helper app, their kids can easily access the knowledge they need at their fingertips. Younger kids are attracted to these fun and educational apps and they can easily learn and practice words and vowels. 

Science can be a challenging subject when taught in school but the educational apps are designed to draw student to learn science online that is both fun and enjoyable. With the many videos, pictures and visual aids, students are looking forward to the lessons taught by the experts. When the lessons are enjoyed, there is no need to nag and remind the children to study. All these work well with busy parents and their children.
