As we all know learning is an ongoing process. Whether one is in nursery school, college, or well into their golden years…. the brain never stops learning. My kids have only been out of school a couple of weeks, but I can already see we may need some educational activities to keep things fresh. Im so happy to have partnered with Lands’ End and can’t wait to share some of the fun activities that are all part of a special love learning campaign.
National Summer Learning Day is July 13th and Lands’ End together with Steve Spangler Science and Brightly, a website from Penguin Random House, is kicking off the #LoveLearning campaign – making sure education doesn’t take a vacation this summer. Parents and kids can log on to Landsend.com/LoveLearning weekly from now through August 31, 2017, to discover do-it-yourself science experiments, book recommendations, an art contest and an exclusive, limited edition science tee.
Graphic tee’s are always a favorite for boys and girls. My son especially loves to pick out his own when we are shopping and they are also a great way to express young personalities! This back to school season kids can wear a love of learning back to class. Lands’ End offers everything from space tees to a love of animals. In celebration of National Summer Learning Day, regular-price Lands’ End Kids graphic tees will be 50 percent off for one day only today, July 13th 2017. in additional, each week a limited edition graphic tee will be introduced to coordinate with that week’s science experiment. Visit Landsend.com/LoveLeaning each week to collect all eight tees.
