In The Hands of a Child's 400th Project Pack Celebration

Several years ago, I was introduced to a great homeschool resource, In the Hands of a Child. At the time, I didn't know very much about them. But the more I looked at their web site and saw the unit studies that they offered, I was certain that this was something I wanted to make use of! And since we homeschool using unit studies, this was a perfect fit for us.

Since that time, I have used several of their project packs to teach my children, including Chocolate, Mary Cassatt (a famous artist), Amelia Earhart, Ecosystems, and Galaxies. These packs include all the information you need to teach the subject, and all the templates needed to finish out your unit with a great lapbook. We have really enjoyed using HOAC project packs!

I am so excited to tell you about Hands of a Child's exciting news! They are getting ready to release their 400th project pack!! WOW! That is quite an accomplishment! This certainly calls for a celebration! And Hands of a Child is certainly celebrating! They are offering YOU a chance to win a FREE 400th project pack bundle!

I am so excited, because this will be the first time I have ever had the chance to give away something on my blog!! And believe me, you are really going to want this! Here's what you need to do. Check out their web site to see what they offer. Make out your "wish list" of five of your favorite project pack titles that you just can't live without! Post a comment on my blog telling me your "wish list". On Tuesday, December 28th, after the holidays and after you have some time to post your "wish list", I will draw a name at random to win the project pack give-away! Hands of a Child will mail the winner a free bundle pack, with everything being covered by them - including shipping! You just can't lose with a deal like that, now can you?!

**Free bundle packs include a printed Project Pack, Kit Pack, and Answer Key (when available) which will be mailed to the winner once the drawing is completed. This is a $40 value with EVERYTHING needed being covered by Hands of a Child, including shipping!
Their 400th Project Pack sale will be early next year and will included great discounts as well as 3 completely free 1 year super memberships ($225value), a FREE custom ordered project pack (you tell them the topic and grade level and they do all the work, a $75 value), as well as a FREE Lifetime Super Membership ($275 value)! Be sure to read up on the features of all these giveaways here. 

Every six months, Hands of a Child offers a FREE project pack that you can download! It is a complete unit to use with your children, so be sure to check it out and take advantage of it!

So head on over to the Hands of a Child web site to see what project packs they offer, and start making that wish list. If you'd like, you can download their free 2010 catalog for an easy look at all they offer. Don't forget to check back on their site over the next few weeks to see more information from them about the 400th project pack CELEBRATION!!

After I draw a winning name (at random, of course!) on the 28th, I'll announce the winner on my blog! Be looking for it!!
