What’s better than a walk on a crisp fall day, photography, and getting moving? Maybe some Pumpkin Spice coffee but that’s about it.

Best of all, the book includes a list of yoga poses for kids and a parent-teacher guide, so you can get your stretches in while encouraging health and learning.

A Fix for Fidgeters

I wish they had these when I was in school with fidgeters, and I’m so grateful they have them now that I’m a parent. This clever tool provides fidgeters with a quiet, non-disruptive way to keep their feet moving while their eyes, ears, and hands stay focused. And it’s not just for learning time – if you have a family occasion or a dinner out, this tool can be your saving grace.
