Scrap Orchard Product Review

Scrap Orchard Home

I was excited about this product review as I would be able to include it in our school days.



As I have said before I homeschool my two oldest children.



I am always on the lookout for new and creative ideas for learning in our classroom.





I was introduced to Scrap Orchard and all I can say is "Oh My!"



Scrap Orchard is a Wonderful Site that is all about Digital Scrapbooking.



I was able to pick something from their site.





I choose the following:

My kids love to do matching games and they are also fun for the whole family. I thought these would be great to incorporate into our science lessons to learn about ocean and jungle animals.



I first started by printing all the materials for each on white cardstock paper. This way they were be stronger and be sure to last for some time to come.



After everything was printed we went into the schoolroom and I let the kids help me cut everything out. I am all about getting them involved in every aspect. After we completed cutting everything out then it was time to assemble the box and a few of the cards. I assembled the box and let the kids assemble the few cards that needed to be.



In total from start to finish it took us approx. 20min





Super quick and easy!!! Right up our alley :)



I love that they each come with a cute little box (that you have to assemble of course) to store the cards for each in. Great way for us to store it on our games shelf in our classroom.



It also comes with an instruction sheet for each telling you how to play the game.



It suggests that you can also laminate the cards if you would like too. We have not done this yet but I just may do so.



I highly recommend you stop by and visit Scrap Orchard. We absolutely love our Matching games and the graphics are just too cute!!!
