Make Your Own Snowman World Kit

June 28th, 2011 (No Comments)

Unintentionally Hysterical I was a bit surprised that our kids liked this (Make Your Own Snowman World Kit) as much as they did. Watching snowballs & ice cubes expand in water isn’t much fun, though, so let ‘em soak the night before. (3- hours and they’re marble-sized.) Follow the snow-making directions exactly and your kids [...]

Squishy Human Body

June 24th, 2011 (No Comments)

Fun and Educational I don’t exactly know if this is a puzzle, a book, an educational tool…because it functions as all of the above. It is a puzzle in the sense that you take the body parts out and then you have to replace them in the correct order. It is a book because the [...]

Kid-O A to Z Magnatab Magnetic Writing Tablet

June 23rd, 2011 (No Comments)

I was really excited when I saw this product, as  I knew it would be great for my 5 year old son who is struggling with his handwriting. I like a gentle approach to handwriting, but who has time to make pudding all day long and let them trace in it?! This solves my desire [...]

Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology

June 17th, 2011 (No Comments)

Wow!  I was so impressed with this book.  Anatomy and Physiology can be so complicated, yet this book broke it down perfectly for my 5th grader and I was floored at how easily he retained the knowledge presented.  This was the first time I bought the notebooking journal because I knew I wouldn’t be able [...]

Titanic – Game

June 16th, 2011 (No Comments)

Challenging and fun I bought this logic game (Titanic) with my 13 year-old in mind, but sadly, it never made it that far … my 9 year-old snagged it, and hasn’t let his sister get hold of it yet! This is a challenging, thought-provoking game that uses a neat historical tie-in to spur interest even [...]

Everyday Battles – Wonderful Family Book!

June 14th, 2011 (No Comments)

This book reminds you to keep your focus on God and your relationship with Him in the midst of the Everyday Battles we all encounter. I have just finished reading through this book myself, and I am looking forward to reading it aloud to my family as we have all (girls included) enjoyed Bob Schultz’s [...]

Faber-Castell Fish Sharpener

June 13th, 2011 (No Comments)

Actually Works! I have bought so many pencil sharpeners and been disappointed by them all. But this one honestly is completely different. It actually sharpens the pencils. Previously I was having issues with the pencil lead breaking off completely, or the pencil sharpening but then breaking once the children started writing. I’ve been using this [...]

Crocodile Creek Back Sack

June 10th, 2011 (No Comments)

Unbeatable Bargain of Usefulness! I can’t imagine anyone regretting buying the Crocodile Creek Back Sack, especially at this price.  I got one for each of my kids (ages 6, 4.5, 2.5) and am so impressed with the quality–I expect them to last for years.  Yes, when cinched closed, the straps are long for kids my [...]

Biology 101 DVD

June 9th, 2011 (No Comments)

Fantastic DVD Course! We love Biology 101!  Although our children are younger than the targeted age (4, 6, 9, 10, and 13), it works wonderfully as a supplement to the Apologia Young Explorer Series because it also approaches biology from the Creation order.  Each lesson is clear, interesting, and God-glorifying.  It is packed with information [...]

Gibbon Funline Slackline

June 7th, 2011 (No Comments)

I have 2 boys 13 and 8 who were VERY excited to get this gift! They thought they would just jump on and be experts (they both have great balance), but this is a whole different realm. They spent quite a bit of time practicing yesterday after getting it set up and they are still [...]
