Review: Natural World Workshop

 A lot of people say that you can never have to many books. This is true but it is also true for art supplies and kits! Our daughters favorite subject in homeschool is art. This time we got the Natural World Workshop kit. It is another art kit made by Djeco. It is a water color painting arts and crafts. What I love about Djeco kits is that the manuals are super easy to follow. Everything is shown step by step on how you are supposed to do the art kit. It is perfect for kids as they can just look at the pictures in the manual and complete the craft on their own. They do not need to read anything so it is no problem to do even if your child does not know how to read yet. I love that I can get out daughter set up with a Djeco kit and get some work done while she is having fun and being productive.


Natural World Workshop has 4 projects to do and as always I do wish to at it had more. The 4 boards are absolutely adorable! There is an under the sea, a desert oasis, a rainforest and a snow covered forest. Each project in this art kit is so wonderfully draw and beautiful. The water colors go on nicely to the board and dry quickly. Out of all the Djeco art kits we have gotten this one is our favorite. In our art class I let our daughter be as creative as she likes. So, with this Djeco kit as well as the other arts and crafts we do I let our daughter paint however she likes. She can choose to do it like the manual suggest or make a super unique work of art. The painting boards are nice and sturdy so I never have to worry about them getting bent or messed up. I really like this because I like to display our daughter’s art around the house. 



There are 8 different colors to choose from and the kit also comes with a paintbrush. The one negative thing that I do not like about this kit is that it only has one paintbrush. It is a bit big for the smaller details. Luckily, we have plenty of brushes in all sizes to choose from. Since it is a water color and not regular paint our daughter is not able to mid colors as she would like but I do not find this to be a negative since when she mixes paint they all turn out grey eventually. If you are in need of some art kits I would definitely suggest Natural World Workshop. 

Can you guess what we will review next? Here are your clues:
  1. Stickers
  2. Fun for kids
  3. Beautiful

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
