I know I am not alone with this one. As a mommy of 3 little ones I am always on the lookout for fun and creative things for my kids to use/play with.
I have found a wonderful site that offers just this. They have a ton of engaging items to keep your kids entertained for hours upon hours. They are great to use at home, take on a trip etc.
We had the pleasure of reviewing 3 items.
The first thing we reviewed was GoodWood Deconstruction Blocks, Mulch Heap.
This set comes with a total of 24 pieces. Each color/set consists of 3 pieces. I absolutely love this set as do my 2 older kids. They really help you to use your imagination and thinking skills. These blocks help you to build in all different directions and shapes. I have enjoyed using them with them as well. Sure beats the ones I had when I was little.
The set comes with a box that you can neatly store them in. They do have to be placed in a certain way. Not to hard to figure out though but a fun way to teach the kid a school lesson is thinking things out :)
I have also let me 9 month old baby girl play with them. She just loves to look at them. I am assuming because of the bright colors.
They are made of harvested rubberwood with acrylic based water paint and appropriate for children age 3+.
These sets are designed entirely of paper that you cut out and paste together to create the animals. It reminds me of when I was a little girl playing with paper dolls. I love both of these sets though, because they are great for boys and girls. I incorporated them into our lesson plans and let both of my older children help with each set.
We started with the Tropic Animals. I let me son cut out a few animals and helped my daughter. She hasn't quite master the cutting of small areas yet. They both had a blast with it. We did 1 to 2 animals each day during our school day.
After we had them all cut out we then began to put them all together. It comes with a scoring tool that you use to trace down the lines of each animal. Everything is very easy to following and walks you through it step by step. After scoring each area that needs to be then you begin to fold the pieces. Once the pieces are folded you glue and stick. We had to old them for a few seconds just to ensure the glue held properly.
Once each one was complete we sat them on a table to fully dry.
The next day we took 5 animals from each set and assembled them into a mobile The set comes with the pieces/arms of the mobile for you to assemble. Once the arms are assembled you attach string to each animals and place them in their designated area of the mobile. Then just hang it up and ta-dah!!!
We have them hanging in our school room and my kids love them. We placed the additional animals on the top of 2 of our shelves in our science area of our homeschool classroom. I will be incorporating them in to future lesson plans throughout the year.
I invite you to stop by for a visit and view all of their wonderful items.
