Praises of a Wife and Mommy was created for mom's like me. I like to share secrets, parenting advice, deals, the many arts and crafts that we do at our at home preschool, and most importantly share my faith. My many roles go beyond mom they also include, preschool teacher, Children's church teacher, youth pastor, wife, and one role I love Christ follower. Praises of a Wife and Mommy started small but is cotinuing to grow. I love to review products and hold giveaways.
Learning Resources- "Riddle Moo This" Game Review and Giveaway
Praises from a Wife and Mommy!
Let the barn animals free! WARNING- playing Riddle Moo This will cause others to think live farm animals have invaded. :)
Thank you Learning Resources for sending me this game to conduct a review and one game to the winner of the giveaway. I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.
About the game:
Cock-a-doodle do you know the answer?! Giggle, learn and grow vocabulary with this exciting riddle game! "It's a fruit, it can be red, and it crunches when you take a bite." Buzz if you know the answer!
Features 2 levels of game play (age-appropriate common nouns) and Barnteaser cards for an extra challenge!
Includes 4 animal-sound buzzers and 150 double-sided cards
My daughter was the first to play this game and she was slow at first to understand how riddles work. Once the connections were made she enjoyed the questions. My 2.5 year old son might not be at an appropriate age to play the game the animal noises were too much fun not to allow him to join in on the action.
I also took this game to my classroom. I love the thinking process for some of my students. I have a few students that are very bright so answers would immediately come to them while a couple students would need more time to make the connections.
There are so many cards that this game will be able to be played for several hours. I have had to bring it to and from school because I have requests coming from home and school of kids wanting to play with it.
The only suggestion I would give to the company is to have a volume control on the animal sounds. I would prefer them to be turned down just a little bit. Overall if you are trying to teach some kids new words and make some connections this is a great game. Check out Learning Resources today!
Suggested age: 5-8

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
