Review: Three Little Pigs

Three Little Pigs is another great game by Smart Games. It came in our Timberdoodle PreK Elite kit. This game comes with 3 pigs and a wolf, a book of challenges and a little picture boo of the story of the Three Little Pigs. My daughter absolutely loves this game! She thinks it’s funny to pretend the wolf eats the piggies. As she goes to place the houses on the pigs she turns the wolf toward the pig she’s about to save. My favorite thing is when she finds a solution that isn’t the one suggested in the challenge book. It shows me that she is really gaining the critical thinking skill.


My favorite things is when she finds a solution that isn’t the one suggested in the challenge book. It shows me she is really gaining the critical thinking skill. Another cool thing is the challenge book has 2 sets of challenges. One with day so the wolf isn’t there and the houses get placed around the pigs so they can play during the day. Then 2nd set is night so the wolf in incorporated and the houses cover the piggies so they don’t get eaten.

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 …
