Morphology Junior Game

Great family game! This is a great game for families--it's fun and challenging for all ages. The rule adaptations from the "original" Morphology are well-designed to make play easier for the younger kids, but it keeps the quirky/crazy feel.

Body of Evidence Curriculum

Body of Evidence Curriculum - Set of 8 DVDS

Learning so much!

I bought this series (Body of Evidence Curriculum – Set of 8 DVDS) for my 13 year old son but I’ve learned a great deal myself.  I’m an EMT and I wish I had access to these DVDs when I was taking my EMT classes. The good doc has a real gift for explaining things simply and clearly. I love his use of “props”. It’s especially good for the visual learner. Excellent series indeed!

Biology 101 DVD

Biology 101 DVD

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 in a very enjoyable way.  The product of each Day of Creation is discussed in detail.  I have found it very beneficial to watch the section (i.e. Botany, Avian Creatures, etc) many times throughout our study and also use the short lesson on a specific topic to introduce the specific chapter we are studying in Apologia.  The 114 page guidebook (included as a pdf on dsic 4) is a huge asset to the course and is filled with all kinds of information and also quizzes.  I am thrilled at how much my children are learning (and retaining) about biology in such a fun and biblically accurate way.  I feel it is a huge value for the price and I highly recommend it!

Mashoonga Sabers

Mashoonga Warrior Sabers Set

Birthday Hit!

I bought this set for my nephews 15th birthday. They battled “Mashoonga” with their dad until midnight and loved it. It even won out over the other “toy” they received, which was a playstation game!

Parma, ID

We requested Mashoonga sets for Christmas, after being disappointed with Nerf swords.  We have had many hours of fun with Mashoonga.  They are soft enough that all the family can “fight” each other, but firm in the center to give good support.  Injuries are few and minor.   Our boys are 8, 11, and 13 years old.

Pocket Disc Sports Edition

Pocket Disc Sports Edition

Safe and Fun for ALL ages!

This super soft pocket disc is amazing!  Not only is it soft and easy to catch, it has amazing distance and great ease in throwing.  My 10 year old loves to keep it in his back pack for fun on the go, and my 2 year old niece loved being able to play catch without getting hurt!  The colors and craftsmanship are superb!  Great gift for anyone!!

Manners Made Easy for Teens

Manners Made Easy for Teens

Helpful for teens

Manners Made Easy for Teens is a great tool for helping young people be comfortable in various situations and for helping to teach them to be a blessing to others.  There are a wide variety of etiquette topics and they are thoroughly covered.  I appreciate the role-playing projects and plan to have my 16 yo son and 17 yo daughter do these together…it may get a bit silly, but I’m confident it will stick in their minds!  Really, their manners are quite good, but I feel that this book will provide a “fine tuning”.  One thing you might want to note…there is a chapter entitled “The Dating Game”, but you can easily omit it, if your family chooses not to date.
