My 8 year old Julia and I tried out their Beginner Lessons and we absolutely love them. Theresa, the art instructor and founder of Thrive, clearly explains step by step how to draw a specific picture in each lesson.

Through the video art classes, kids learn the basics of how to draw and they have the opportunity to come up with their own ideas. These fun lessons teach kids to innovate and create.

As parents, we all know to read to our kids at night – but what about math? Just as reading at home teaches kids to love books, math at home can help kids learn to love numbers.

Bedtime Math has a fun book you can read to your children and they also have a website where you can sign up for a free playful new math problem daily. It begins with a brief set-up – electric eels, chocolate chips, zip lines into the neighbor’s pool – then asks three levels of math questions.

Tackle them at breakfast or dinner, bathtime or bedtime… wherever it fits in your
family routine. Find out how it works here.
