My kids love treasure hunting, scavenger hunts, geocaching, and the list goes on. I don’t know what kid doesn’t love a good treasure hunt. When the review for Clued In Kids came up I was really excited. I thought it would add some fun and enjoyment into our day. I had no idea that it would inspire my kids to want to create their own scavenger hunts. I also didn’t expect them to ask if we can incorporate them into some of our subjects as well.
Warriors of Honor is about the faith and legacies of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. This actually inspired me as you don’t really hear to much about the Christian side of things in a normal history book. Well at least I hadn’t when I was in school. Both Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson were both Southern Leaders that fought in a war that forever changed our country.
I was really excited when I was contacted by Creator Box. I was told that I would have a box sent to me for my review. Once we received the box and opened it up to see what our project was my son became really excited. We discovered we were building a catapult.
Let me tell you about Creator Box. Once a month your child will receive a build-your-own kit. These are educational toys for kids ages 6 – 12 that inspire young builders. You sign up for a subscription and you will have your box delivered every month.
Geoboards are a mathematical manipulatives used to explore the basic concepts in plane geometry. You can use them for many things. A few examples would be for shapes, art, letters, numbers, even constellations for stars, to name just a few. The boards normally are a physical board with nails in them, in which rubber bands can be wrapped around. I have seen many different geoboard designs. I also have seen geoboards made out of many different things.
