Review on Magformers (cool toy for kids)

So for awhile I have debating on buying these for my kids. They are kind of expensive 
14pcs for $25
30pcs for $50
62pcs for $100
(toysrus prices)
Finally I gave in and got the cheapest one. After all who really would spend much more on a toy your kid/kids may not even like?

Anyway we brought it home and the next morning my kids were begging me to open these. 
Inside it came with a booklet, in the booklet is many different ideas for  building with them. For some ideas though you would need more Magformers. 

Guess that is were they get you. You'r kid sees these amazing ideas but you need way more then 14 to make them and they beg you for more lol


Anyway look how colorful they are! You could also get them in different colors. (pink and purple was another option) 

So after playing with them in our living room we headed to the bathroom(only room we can make dark) with our black light.
They looked amazing!  Most but the blue glowed bright.
They also look cool on top of a light box.

The age on the box says 6 and up but my 5 year old had no issues playing with these. (watched the whole time anyway)

They stick together with magnets and are not to strong or to weak for little hands to build with.
I highly recommend these for any kid! Very cool toy, just can be expensive~
Last note~ they do not come with a bag or storage to put them back in, so have a container ready. You don't want to loose them!

One way I keep my kids learning over the summer break!

We all know that summer can be one time our kids can lose what they learn during the school year. We get told this over and over every year and it is very true. So every summer we try to fit in as much learning as we can(while still having fun). This year we are trying spring/summer journals. As much as possible we  take walks and every time the kids see something they find interesting they either write about it and/or draw a picture to go with it. This way we are keeping up with new vocabulary and learning about many different things.
So yeah, this is the new thing we are adding this summer to help keep my kids learning! So far it has been a big hit, lets hope it stays that way. :)



Have a good rest of your morning, evening, or night! Bye guys!~

Spring dollar sensory bin/easy cheap sensory play

Spring is here finally! We are so ready for the warmer weather! To celebrate the start of spring I decided a nice sensory bin was a good idea. So off to the local dollar store I went to see what they would have. Dollar stores are a great place to find cheap ideas for play. 
They had a whole selection of fairies and gnomes and many accessories. This was the tray I put together for my kids but my kids are older and I know they wont eat any of this. If you have younger kids or toddlers  I suggest looking around to find more age appropriate items. I also look for items that will not just sit around or go to waste. These little figures will go in a play bin for not only my kids to enjoy threw the spring/summer but for my neighborhood kids to enjoy also. The only thing I wish I would have added to this tray was water. We covered the sense of touch here in many ways and water would have been a great add on. Anyway this was my kids bin but you can make many different bins from dollar stores …
