As part of this hop, you’ll find dozens of blogs with eco-friendly prizes packages worth $25 or more – all made in the USA!

Good luck!

There’s nothing more “Made in the USA” than handmade by work at home mom’s/dad’s and small family businesses!

I enjoyed sharing my handmade busy bag creations with you last month in the Summer Celebration giveaway (check out that prize pack!), so I thought I’d give you another opportunity to win some more of my great creations, as well as that of a friend of mine who has started her own little business!

Handmade by USA Moms Package!

Important info:

**This Package is aimed toward Preschool and Kindergarten level children, though can be adapted for younger children (who would love creating pretty cupcakes and picnic meals for mommy/daddy!) to older children (who would love following the phases of the moon throughout the month!)  I am willing to substitute most items with something else I can create for  you within reason if you feel something in the package will not suite your child well, just ask!  Any product from another creator is their decision, and not SAPsMaMa’s**

1 Phases of the Moon Felt Puzzle Activity made by SAPsMaMa

In 1969 the US went to the moon!  Now your little one can go to the moon in their dreams with this Phases of the Moon felt puzzle activity!

For younger children use the cheat sheet and have them make each moon phase.  With older children cover up the label at the bottom and have them tell you what phase you have made!  Many more versions can be done, this is great for many ages and levels of learning!  Made out of recycled felt by SAPsMaMa!  (ARV $10)

1 Picnic Place Setting Activity made by SAPsMaMa

There is nothing more American in July than a good old fashioned picnic!  Your little one  can have a blast putting together a place setting of everyone’s favorite picnic foods, from hotdogs to watermelon and good old chocolate chip cookies!

Can be personalized with your child’s name on the placemat and anyone’s  names of their choice on each menu card. Includes a “Create Your Own” menu card to teach your child how to create a “square meal” at a picnic!  Younger children learn sequencing as you read them the card and create their meal in order, older children can learn how to create meals and place setting.  Made by SAPsMaMa (ARV $7)

Great for ages 3-5 to build counting skills, fine motor skills, and shape/color recognition.  Great for ages 6-8 for addition and subtractions kills!  Made by eLeMeNO-P (ARV $8)

ARV estimated at $25

My little one is a little young still, but we could do something with the Picnic Place Setting Activity and get a lot of use out of them all when she’s a litle older. My daughter loves learning, and I think that she would love all of these. I like that you can do different things with different age levels with each of these.
