Review: Plus-Plus Mini 1200pc

 As a stay-at-home-mom I’m always looking for things that our daughter can do on her own for when I need to do housework, care for baby sister or work on my commissions . Plus-Plus is so great for kids. We got this with our Timberdoodle Curriculum  this year. Works motor skills, creativity and is just fun all around. It comes with a booklet to show how to make certain things or you can build whatever you want.  As cool as this is I did find some downsides. The pieces are sometimes hard to put together and take apart. Besides that I’d definitely recommend these. Our daughter probably spent about 2 hours building to her heart’s content before she was ready to move on to something else. After she builds things she plays with what she’s made. We are able to come up with interesting stories for our creations and add on by just building another item. Certainly, a win for creativity, motor skills and story telling.

Review: Cosmos Foil

 Need an easy, mess free activity for the kids? Then  Cosmos Foil  is perfect for you. With 12 cards and plenty of stickers you can even do this with multiple kiddos. First you start off with your card then peel the sticker off and push it on the board. Then take your glittery foil and place it over the sticker and push. When you peel the foil off the sticker has pretty sparkly foil on it.  Our daughter loves to do art so this kit was right up her alley. This is something that she can do on her own if I need to get some chores done or when I’m feeding little sister. Our daughter is 4 so even young kids can make these art projects own their own which will definitely help with confidence and pride.  Since there is no wrong or right place to put the stickers your little ones are able to really make each piece their own style. I plan to display all 12 throughout our 1st grade year. I highly recommend this art kit which I got with our Timberdoodle curriculum .

Review: This is How We Do It

If you need a way to show your kiddos how different families do things this is the book for you!  This is How We Do It  takes your through the lives of 7 kids from around the world. Each family is unique and they all have different lifestyles. Our daughter loved seeing what each kid did throughout their day After reading each section I like to stop and talk about what we do. If it’s different or the same as the other kids. This book came with our  Timberdoodle  kindergarten kit. Our daughter has really loved going through this book. One downside I did find is there isn’t a family that homeschools but it did give us a chance to talk about how they went to school vs how we do school. I’d recommend this if your looking for a way to show your kids the differences in their lives compared to other kids or how diverse our world really is. 

Review: Thinkplay Gears

Thinkplay Gears  is such a fun and engaging toy for kids. It comes with so many projects to make. They start off easy and get progressively harder. My daughter loves to play with these and build different things beside what’s in the books. It’s definitely great to keep littles ones of screens and having fun building and being creative.  We got this in our kindergarten curriculum kit from  Timberdoodle . Since she loved the PreK ThinkPlay I knew she’d enjoy this one, too. The difference between the two is that this one has gears. So you can actually make things that move when you turn the crank. Our daughter loves that the wheel really move when you build a automotive and that the gears really turn. You get to see all the gears working together. I’d definitely recommend this as a wind STEM project that kids could do anytime either with the project books or by using their own imagination.
