Last week I had the pleasure of hosting a Phoenix party. What is Phoenix? They sell greetings cards, stationary, giftwrap, games and more. It’s also a great excuse to get a few friends round for a natter.
I was really impressed with their products especially the range of educational resources on offer. I’d previously purchased a shopping game at a friends party, to play with kiddies. This time I have ordered a large map of the British Isles that the children can colour in and learn about where we live; a King and Queens poster to learn about the monarchy, as R is quite interested in history I thought this would be great for her. I also ordered the Cook’s Notes poster, this helps with converting weights, measurements and temperatures, and has instructions on how to boil an egg. This will be a great help in our cooking lessons as well as helping in maths when we learn about volume, length and weight.
I really like the cards too, especially as most of them are blank inside to add your own message. They all have great designs and I definitely have a few favorites. There are some great cards for men, I always find buying cards for men difficult. They are all made to a really high spec. and if you buy 10 or more you get a discount. There are so many great products if I talked about them all, we’d be here for weeks!
Jess, who is my local representative for Phoenix, is really lovely and looking for special people to join her team this autumn. If you’re interested pop along to her website, it could be a really great job for a fellow home educator or parent as you could fit it in around the children.
