About School Time Snippets

Founded in 2011 and based in the United States of America, School Time Snippets is an independently operated blog run by Kristina C. School Time Snippets is a personal blog to share various learning and play activities that you may replicate in your home.

Through-out our regular learning and play-inspired activities, you will find posts that have been sponsored by a company and/or a review of a product where I have been compensated to provide my opinion.  Such posts will specifically state  in the beginning or at the end of the post that I was provided a product for free in exchange for the honest and fair review.  The views expressed in all content are my own.  Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

I am also an affiliate to a few products you find in our Shop and for a few companies that we have purchased from to fulfill our curriculum needs in our homeschool.
