I always like to include thinking items into our homeschool. I want our kids to be able to critically think about a problem and find a solution on their own or with some help if they need any. If you are regular to my blog then you know we love our games from Timberdoodle so when I saw this book on their website I had to get it. Mind Benders is a great little workbook to add in during the week as an extra fun activity.
The whole workbook is deciding which one goes with the other. Example: does dad/son/daughter have a cat, dog or shark as a pet based on the clues given. Since our daughter is 4 I do read the clues to her. All the rest is on her but I will answer any questions she has along the way.
What I love to do is just sit back and see her come up with the solution on her own. Doing her own thought process building her critical thinking skills and she gains a ton of confidence and pride knowing she was able to get the answers on her own.
