Review: Small Pegs Activity Set

Small Pegs Activity Set is great for fine motor skills. The pegs snap into the board so you know they are in properly. My daughter gets bored about halfway through doing one challenge so I have her just do a little section or take turns putting in pegs with her. I do wish it came with a blanket challenge board so she could make her own design. I plan on making one for her.


These have been really great to teach her patterns; ab, aba, abc, etc. She was having trouble with what comes next in a pattern until I noticed that Small Pegs had cards that were just about patterns. After doing them a few times she’s a pro. Since there are a lot of pegs and they are very small I put them all in a ziplock baggy to help them from going missing.

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: Hey Clay Bugs

We got an opportunity to check out Hey Clay Bugs from Timberdoodle’s 4th grade kit. This is an air clay so when left out it will harden allowing for some imaginative play after building. It comes with 16 containers of clay. All the colors you’ll need to make the bugs. With the bugs we’ve made so far you will need a pencil to make the mouths and eye holes. If you want step-by-step instructions for each bug you’ll need to download their app and then add the code they give you in the box to unlock the bugs.


What I like is the clay is soft and easy to use. Since my daughter is only 3 it was a learning curve to forming the shapes but she started to get a better handle of it and really enjoyed playing with it. The app is wonderful and with it she knew what needed to be done and did great job at making the little bugs. 

I did find some downsides. The clay sticks very well so if you want to take a piece off and reform it, it’s a bit difficult to do so best to not push pieces together to much …
