Which Should I Choose?: Printed Paper Posters vs. Digital Files

Skip Counting Art Print Poster | Pretty Nerdy Press
Read More
In our shop, we offer both printed paper posters and digital files that you can send to the print shop yourself. Digital files are less expensive up front, so you may find that option more appealing. But don't let the initial price be your deciding factor! In many cases, getting the digital files printed costs you more time and money than buying the ready-made prints. So before you settle for the cheapest option, let me...

Homeschool Day in the Life with Kids Ages 13, 11, 9, 7, 6, 5, and 5 months | Pretty Nerdy Press
Read More
I've always loved reading the homeschool "day in the life" posts at Simple Homeschool. There's something comforting about getting a peek into another mom's everyday life. Today I thought it would be fun to share a little slice of our life with 7 kids under 13. We've been homeschooling our children since the beginning, but our schedule has grown and changed as the children have gotten older. When everyone was little, we did a lot...

Paper Periodic Table Poster | Pretty Nerdy Press
Read More
Good news! We've been researching and ordering samples and we finally have printed paper posters available for purchase! Almost every design is available in both 18" x 24" or 12" x 16" options. If the poster is not available in the smaller size, it's because the print becomes too small at that size (the numbers on the periodic table, for example). All posters are printed on sturdy, archival quality paper with a matte finish. We think...

Do you make a plan for your reading each year? I always read more books when I make a plan and track my reading goals. I've been using Evernote to keep my reading lists organized, but I wanted the kids to get in the habit of tracking their books as well. I always love looking back to see what I've read throughout the year and I think they will be encouraged when they look back at...

Read More
2017 felt like a year off from life for me, and not in a good way. My seventh pregnancy took a toll on my body with all-day sickness until 22 weeks and hip ligament weakness that kept me from almost all physical activity during the second half. Creating the Pretty Nerdy posters, along with a couple of other design projects that I was able to complete while sitting at the computer, were the highlights of...

Do you have a budding young scientist in your home? I have a couple of curious kiddos with endlessly inquisitive minds. Maybe it's the homeschool mom in me, but I prefer to give our children gifts that encourage them to develop their skills and interests. Not every great gift for children has to be a toy either. I've gathered a short list of my favorite science-related toys, games, books, art, and school supplies to share...

8 Ways My Parents Encouraged Me to See Beauty in the Everyday

8 Ways My Parent Encourage Me to See Beauty in the Everyday | Pretty Nerdy Press
Read More
Parents have the unique opportunity to shape their children's view of the world through everyday interactions and conversations. My parents instilled in me the invaluable ability to see beauty in small things. Finding beauty in the everyday and mundane doesn't come naturally to us. It is a learned behavior. As parents, we can help our children to see the world, looking for beauty in the small things; things that serve to remind us that...
