Review: Peek-a-Boo-Bunny by Smart Games

My sister was nice enough to get my daughter the Peek-a-Boo-Bunny by Smart Games. She bought it off of my Timberdoodle wishlist. The reason I wanted it for her was because she has never had a game where she has to make something based off a picture. Since she’ll be starting on Timberdoodle pre-K kit it was something that she wouldn’t get.


I really like this game. The pieces are big and sturdy for a toddler to easily handle. The cards are sturdy but I still wouldn’t trust my daughter to use them without tearing or bending them. They have 4 levels of difficulty. And they include a booklet of the cards in the event you lose a card. I did have trouble opening the box, and the box is huge, so I am storing the pieces in a ziplock bag which works out better for travel purposes. I plan on using this for both preschool and prek.


My daughter really enjoyed these. She didn’t want to stop playing with them. She used her creative skills and built things of her own with them. The best part is she gets critical thinking skills, creativity skills and listening skills just by playing with something that she enjoys and thinks is a game.

Getting Started & Preschool Schedule

I noticed a lot of people on Facebook where asking about how to get started with homeschooling and what people do for their toddlers. In Texas, it’s very simple. You just send a letter or email to your child’s school letting them know you are withdrawing your child with the intent of homeschooling. Then begin homeschooling. Every state has different laws of what needs to be taught and what you need to do as far as testing. This website is very helpful for information by state. You’ll need to get a curriculum that you feel well be a good fit for your family. There are religious and secular (non-religious) curriculums. I have chosen Timberdoodle. They are a hands-on curriculum, offer both religious and non, you can customize your kits and they even have a scheduler to help you know what needs to get done each week.


Here is what we do for preschool. I did these myself; it’s not Timberdoodle.

Monday: books (she picks one and 1 about letters), game based on letters, 2 workbook pages (lette…

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…
