Review: Skwids

We had a foreign exchange college student come to our house one day and he was selling these books from Skwids. I do like these books. They have Ask Me About books, two books that are like dictionaries for kids, shapes, colors, letter and number books. We got 2 sticker books and posters. I did laminate the posters first, they are about 16x24 inch.


Pros: the books are big, sturdy, have bright colors and fun pictures. They also have words in both English and Spanish.


Cons: price; we went with the least expensive package and they were still extremely expensive. We did get like 18 books, 2 sticker books and posters for the price but it was the most expensive thing we’ve bought for preschool. They are in no way a curriculum but more of a supplemental tool.

Review: Djeco So Pop

Our daughter loves arts and crafts. Djeco So Pop is another amazing art project that she had a blast doing. I got it through Timberdoodle and it also comes with their PreK Curriculum Kit. The kit comes with 4 different projects and all the pieces you need to put them together. This particular kit came with little envelopes for each project that had sequence in them so I popped out each item for the projects and put them in the envelopes so everything would be ready go when do each one. Djeco also give you a glue stick so you can glue the pieces on the boards but I have found the glue they provide isn’t that great so instead we use hot glue.


What I really like about Djeco art kits is that they give you a little booklet that shows where to put each piece on the boards. It shows you through pictures so if your child doesn’t read yet it’s not a problem. Easy for a young kid to follow and great for the parent because you don’t have to read a lengthy instruction book. 

I’d definitely recomm…
