Review: Pixel Baby

Pixel Baby reminds me of another game that we had got from Timberdoodle called Small Pegs. This comes with many different cards that children can complete by putting the 3 shape pixels in the correct spot. I like that our youngest could play with this while our oldest works on the activity with pieces that are small and work that is more advanced.


First, they can just practice putting the pixels on the board for some good old fine motor skills. Then the littles can start to match up there colors to the correct spots and finally they can learn some basic shapes while completing the different cards. Starting at the right step for your child is important because you don't want them to get discouraged if what you are asking for is too hard for them.


Our oldest wanted to help little sis with this game. She showed her how to place the pieces and explained colors and shapes to her. This is another game that can grow with the kiddos as they learn the basics. And by having them play it together it helps them gain those sharing and taking turns skills. Much needed at a young age.


I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who has a child that is ready to learn the basics and keep them occupied for quite some time. The pieces are nice and big and very well made. So I do not have to worry about our youngest choking on them. I love when we have items like this that can be used over and over as well as be passed down to use again with siblings. Do you have any great items that you can pass down that are educational? Let us know in the comment section below.

Review: Sensory Tissue Box

We have been trying out a lot of new baby items this year and here is another one we did not have for our first daughter. It is called  Sensory Tissue Box . What makes this toy so much fun? Let's be honest babies love to get into things. We have tried before to let her play with a regular box of tissues. Big mess. The tissues were everywhere and they have like 250 tissues in a box, she torn them up to so an even bigger mess. Our daughter even went as far as to rip the box itself up. This sensory tissue box though is made of very soft fabric so she can not tear it up, it has 15 tissues so less to keep track of and the tissue can not be easily torn up either. This is the biggest positive of this sensory box in my opinion. Another positive to having this sensory tissue box instead of a regular one is that the tissues are different colors and sizes as well as having different textures to them. There are 6 see-through ones, 6 see-through ones that have dots on them and 3 crinkly ones. T

Review: 180 Days of Social Studies 1st

When I noticed that our history class did not have a lot for social studies I decided to look for something to add into our homeschool. I came across 180 Days of Social Studies  and decided to try it. So, we started with the kindergarten version and I thought it was quite well done so we have kept it for 1st grade as well. Just like with the kinder one the booklet is done in black and white and I wish it was done in color. It goes over so much but in an easy to understand way for the age group that would be using it. 180 Days goes over American things so if you are homeschooling in another country and not learning about American history then I would look for another curriculum to use. The 1st grade version goes over the systems of government, civics, economics, geography and history. The thing I like best about 180 Days is that you only do a page a day. If your school year is a 36 weeks then you are perfectly set up to do 1 page a day. Since we do a 47 week school year we only do a few

Review: Pat-a-Cat First Nursery Rhymes

I like to read a lot of books to the girls. Especially, when kids are young I think it is important to have them listen to lots and lots books. Even if your kids are playing you can read aloud to then. That way they get to hear a ton of different stories and it is good for bonding with them. When our oldest was young I would read my books aloud because she would not understand what was going on anyway. We recently got this new book for our youngest daughter. It is called  Pat-a-Cat First Nursery Rhymes  and it has a whole bunch of rhymes. 24 to be exact. What is so cool about this book of nursery rhymes is that each rhyme has instructions on actions you can do while you read them. So, your baby can get active while you sing/read since they will probably want to copy you if they are old enough to do so. Our daughter is very into songs. Her favorite is Row, Row, Row Your Boat which is not in this book but she will sing it on her own. I am sure if we sing these enough she will start singi
