MindWare- Educational Toys- Review and Giveaway




Time to get your marbles on the track and have a ball!  
Thanks MindWare Toys for sending me the marble run to review.  All opinions expressed are 100% mine and I was not paid for this review. 
As soon as the box arrived my kids were thrilled.  The agony my kids endured when I said we could not set it up until we got back from our weekend get away.
  

My husband is a good dad and spent an hour setting up the marble run.  The kids faces were filled will awe as they watched intently as the marbles went on the course. 

The suggested age for this educational toy is 4+ but I still allowed my 2 year old to play with his sister with constant supervision, but in typical 2 year old fashion the marble run took a small beating from my son and I found myself trying to re-hook the pieces back together.  The next time we set it up will be when my son is napping so my daughter can have more time of exploring and learning as the marble goes through the different runs.  



Time to enter the giveaway and surprise your little one with hours of fun and exploration.  Use the rafflecopter form below to get your entries in!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
