Super exciting news for anyone who loves online classes, family-friendly crafts, DIY, fitness and any other sort of hobby or self-improvement. The people from Craftsy have expanded their already amazing selection of online classes to include even MORE categories and interests. They’ve changed the name to Blueprint.

They’ve got every kind of class and project you can imaging. Check out a couple of their pet photography classes and learn to take better pics of your fur kids and human kiddos!

I’m especially looking forward to trying their yoga classes since I LOVE doing yoga but don’t like the schedule at our local places that offer it. That’s one of the great things about online classes…they work on your schedule, not the other way around.

Right now you can watch ALL their classes for FREE with a 7 Day Free Trial at BluePrint. 24/7 on any device.

Binge-Watch Craft Tutorials and Videos with Craftsy Unlimited FREE 7-Day Trial

Winter is a great time to learn a new hobby, start a new DIY project or learn a new skill. Unleash your creativity, perfect your technique and make something meaningful with all sorts of online classes and craft projects from Craftsy.

I took the Craftsy Knitting for Beginners Class a while back and found it helpful and really easy to follow. Love being able to watch the instructional videos as many times as I want and at my own pace and schedule. Much less intimidating than an in-person class, too. I think I’m going to do a couple of their pet photography classes next!

Online classes are accessible from just about any internet-connected device including PC, Smartphones and iPad. In addition to working in all the major browsers, Craftsy apps are also available for both iOS and Android.

Until now, Craftsy has only offered classes for purchase on an individual basis, but we got some exciting news about a new membership that lets you watch all the classes you want! It’s like Netflix, but with unlimited interactive online classes in Photography, Cooking, Knitting, Cake Decorating, Weaving…even a whole course in Cinnamon Rolls from Classic to Contemporary. Pretty much anything you’d like to learn to do, Craftsy offers classes.

While you can still purchase individual a la carte classes if you prefer, the advantage of the unlimited subscription is that you can binge-watch hours of instructional video before deciding which supplies to buy to start a new project, craft or hobby. Is binge-crafting a thing? I think it should be. Anyway, a month of Unlimited costs about the same as buying one class a la carte.

With Valentine’s Day coming up, it’s the perfect time to create some handmade gifts for those close to your heart. Learn to make Cake Pops or create some Handmade Greeting Cards. A Craftsy subscription also makes a GREAT Valentine’s Day gift idea if your special someone is the creative type or wants to be.

Right now you can try a FREE 7-Day Trial of Craftsy Unlimited. If you can imagine it, you can create it with the help of Craftsy’s online instruction.

You’ll get access to thousands of classes and expert video tutorials in more than 16 different crafts, plus 600+ of the world’s leading creative experts, exclusive new videos released weekly, and unlimited access to all of the classes on Craftsy Unlimited. Once you’re an active member, you’ll even receive special member offers on supplies, recipes, patterns, and more!

Sea Turtles for kids

You can expect the same kind of subjects to be included in National Geographic Kids magazine that you get in the adult version: animals, science, archaeology, and geography, but with technology and pop culture added to the mix too. As you might expect, there is also a strong emphasis on magnificent wildlife photography. Frequent appearances of animal posters can be found within the pages, as well as high-quality photographs sprinkled throughout the magazine. The addition of games and jokes, alongside other activities such as puzzles and competitions, keeps the subjects light, while still getting across the important facts.

Dog laughing mag cover

Summer break will be here before you know it, and this magazine would be great at helping to prevent the ‘summer slide’ or learning loss that occurs over the summer if kids aren’t encouraged and motivated to keep reading and learning during their vacation. It looks like a super deal and a real treat for animal-loving young readers! Go HERE to check it out.
