Website Wednesdays #4
People often wonder how I know about so much cool stuff on the internet. My mom-in-law thinks I am somehow web-gifted. My secret however are blog and bunny trails. In fact, today while reading some other blogs I happened upon a few super awesome sites. Everyone should know about these and if you are in my email address book, you will probably get a little note from me about them.
Without any further ado, today's offerings are...
How to Draw with Jan Brett
Here you will find videos of the author of such beloved children's classics as The Mitten and Comet's Nine Lives teaching you step by step how to draw and paint her wonderful characters and more and it's free!!!
This is such a wonderful idea! Well known Screen Actors Guild Members such as Elijah Wood and Lou Diamond Phillips read classic children's stories out loud. There are close ups of the pictures and there are captions under the screen so that kids can read along. There are even extension activities available. Again this is free!!
I had heard of this site a while back from a friend but I hadn't really checked it out. It is pretty cool. Kids teach your kids how to cook via different recipe videos. The site boasts over 200 recipe videos. The videos are free to watch online but you can purchase their cookbooks and cooking accessories through the site
That is all for today, but rest assured, my bookmarks are many and I will share them all with you a little at a time!
If you know of a site you think I should know about, please let me know in the comments.
