Add it Up Archery Game Review- from Lakeshore

 A new way to do math!!  

Product Description: 

Add-It-Up! Archery Set
  • Value: $59.99
Take aim at addition! Sized just right for children, our super-safe archery set lets kids shoot for a bull’s-eye…as they practice math! Children just use a flexible plastic bow to shoot safe, suction-cup arrows at the target—adding up the numbers as they play! Includes 4 arrows, plus a bow, quiver, target and stand. Measures 19 3/4" x 38 1/2" tall.

My Review:
Math has hit a new level of fun!   This new suction cup archery set will encourage addition or any other math number work is going to make math fun!  My kids were eager when I opened up the shipping box and they saw the archery set.   They were ready to get started but first some rules and teaching them how to use it had to be done.   We set the archery up right in the living room.   We made sure that every one had to be behind the person shooting the arrow.   We discussed safety  a lot even though the suction cup arrow is not going to really hurt.  

The archery set is fun and the board is very strong.  We did bend an arrow because we set the number board up against a wall so when we missed the bard it hit the wall and it did start to bend a little.  I would recommend putting the target out where nothing is behind it and it can just fly till it stops rather then hitting a wall. 

My kids aged 4 and 8 did take several turns to learn how to shoot the arrow the appropriate way.   They even showed some frustrations and wanted to give up but with some encouragement they were able to learn how to do it and now do it independently.  I am enjoying all the adding that can occur with this game.   The practice is always needed but some new creative games can occur such as greater then and less then, odd and even aiming, team adding and so many others.  We love our new archery set and you will too!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
