Colin is the one at our house who discovered Kickstarter and has become fascinated with the prospect of getting one of his many ideas off the ground. I hadn't looked around much at the different projects, but I funded my first project a few days ago after I found out about it on How we Montessori. I wasn't sure it was going to get funded by the deadline (which is tomorrow!), but it has gained traction partly because it was also posted on Pioneer Woman's homeschool blog. I don't have many followers here, but I wanted to get the word out the best I can!
I love the idea of Kickstarter and I love that this is a project from a mom who has taken a passion of her kids and is getting her kids involved in making the project happen. The cards will have beautiful illustrations and be coated with non-toxic plastic. You can fund at many different levels. I got the full deck at $20. Check out the project through the video below and find out more on the project page.
