When I first hosted the ABCs of Raising Well-Rounded Geeklings in March of 2014, I felt saddened at the end of the series. I had written about 26 different topics of geeky interest but that was barely even the tip of the iceburg! I knew I wanted to continue to talk about geeky parenting and so I created the On Beyond Zombie series, a weekly linky party dedicated to all things geek-parenting related.

LittleMan and I were reading one of his many dinosaur books when he noticed a map at the top corner of the page, a map of Pangaea.
Intrigued by the idea that the seven continents of the world all used to be one large super continent, LittleMan began to describe a story. He told of how he used the Wild Kratts’ time travel trampoline to jump back in time and see Pangaea for himself. I suggested that a lot of people might want to travel Pangaea as well, and that we could make travel brochures to advertise a tourist trip.
Have you heard the news? LEGO has announced a Doctor Who set. Pretty fantastic, huh?
And that fully awesome (more…)
At a recent trip to Dollar Tree, we spied a set of Spiderman stampers in their seasonal Valentines aisle. I wasn’t quite sure what we’d use them for but I knew they’d come in useful and be fun to play with so I picked up a set for LittleMan.
That evening, there was a Odd Squad episode on TV about patterns. Viola! I knew what to do with the Spiderman stampers: a simple and fun patterning exercise.
If you didn’t know already, I *LOVE* LEGO. I think LEGO products are a fantastic and fun way to learn through play.
So, because I already love LEGO, it isn’t that hard for my children to convince me to buy them a new LEGO set.
Which has obviously resulted in a massive LEGO bricks collection.
Pictured above is about 1/6 of LittleMan’s LEGO bricks. So maybe his collection is getting just a tiny bit out of hand. (more…)
Like many geek homes with small children, we have a few old, tattered graphic novels and comic books and such laying about.
LittleMan can manage a level 1 or level 2 early reader on his own, sometimes even level 3 depending on the publisher’s standards of easy readers (every publisher is different), however he can’t quite manage these graphic novels on his own. Really, he just enjoys the art work and having us read it aloud to him.
Welcome back to the On Beyond Zombie Linky Party and also, Happy New Year!
We all know the typical New Year’s resolutions: Eat healthier. Exercise more. Organize your house. Kick a bad habit. Save some money.
Things that are all well and good but we all know very few people will still be working those resolutions on February 1st. Still it is human nature to want to improve one’s self and the new year seems like as good an excuse as any to give it a go.
As geeks raising the next generation of geeklings, our goals might vary a bit from the average person. (more…)
All this month I’m going to be sharing with you crafts and activities that I’ve made with some custom Gallifreyan writing which I got from Applique Geek. Applique Geek has something for every fandom so be sure to check them out and let them know Suzy Homeschooler sent you.
Last week we shared an idea to create Gallifreyan writing ornaments for your tree, the week before that we shared some free printable Gallifreyan Writing Activity Mats, this week we’ll be sharing another free printable of Gallifreyan writing which promotes fine motor skills and can also be used to decorate your home and tree for Christmas.
