I was invited to attend the  Social Media on the Sand Conference at Beaches Resort in Turks and Caicos at a substantial discount.  HP was a sponsor of the event, and I am an #HPSmartMom. Occasionally I receive information, products, and discounts from HP.

On my trip to visit Beaches Resort in Turks and Caicos, I went to check out the Rock Iguanas of Little Water Cay! See if your little one can find the rock iguana in this coloring sheet.  Then go online with your kids and research the rock iguana to answer the questions included on the coloring sheet.

(Did you know that you can print this coloring sheet right from your phone? Check out mobile printing solutions here.)

Top 20 Educational Caribbean Downloads for Kids

(There's some eye candy for you statistics nerds out there. Don't say I never gave you anything.)

My husband is an amazing IT project manager, and his mantra is that anything that can be measured can be improved. So, every now and then I run a report on the downloads section on SocaMom.com.  That is one of my favorite features on the site because I use it for my own children.  As I get ready to close out 2013, I am pleased to report that we are nearing 60,000 downloads of about 200 coloring sheets and activity sheets since October of last year!

What are the most popular downloads? Well, I’m no mathematician, but this is how I decided to figure that out.

I took the number of downloads of a particular activity page, and divided it by the number of days that it has been on the site.  The larger the number, the greater the popularity. Not sure if it is right, but is sounds good to me!  Here’s what came out as the top 20… click on the links to download instantly.
