UGEARS Mechanical Models Review

Thanks UGEARS or sending me this free tractor model in exchange for an honest review.  

I really had no idea what I was about to do and boy did I need the youtube videos to help me.  I will admit that I am only part of the way done as I realized this is not one of my strengths, looking at diagrams to put something together.  I however, want to get the review up since I have had the product for several weeks.  

UGEARS offers many different projects to put together.   I chose the tractor one because I live in Iowa and I think it is going to look great in my living room or my son's room once I complete it. 

It was easy to push the pieces out and I did use a toothpick on a couple small ones to loosen them and get them to come out.  I think the reason I struggled is mainly looking at the diagram.   I don't want to call myself stupid because I know I'm not but it took much more concentration and focus and I have been using all that brain power on my masters class right now.... seems like a good excuse right?! 

I do think older teens and adults who make the time to focus and do this will enjoy their creation.  

Thanks again to UGEARS for sending me this product and I do apologize for my delay.   I still highly recommend this product and once I get my husband motivated to help me finish I will update this post with finished pictures!   WOOT

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
