Travel Blurt and Educational Insights!

Hey neighbors!

Do you remember quite awhile back I did a review with Blurt?  Well, now Educational Insights has been kind enough to send me Travel Blurt.  This is a seriously fun game!  It does get loud though, so don't play if you have a headache.  We had a great time playing, and we will definitely be taking this game on trips with us.  It is the perfect size and fits all inside a small tin.  Not only is it compact, but the scoring is done on the tins lid with magnetic pieces.

Travel Blurt really is fun.  With the travel game you can have 4 players, we actually divided up into teams.  You could also do it individually with more people, you would just have to use paper and pen to keep score.  The cards for Travel Blurt have an easy side and a harder side.  You earn points by being the first player to guess the word correctly.  Each player/team will get a turn to read a clue/definition.  Pick a team to begin reading the first clue.  Everyone else must guess the correct word for the clue/definition.  The player/team reading the clue will decide who answered correctly first.  As the clue is being read the other players can begin to guess out loud and keep guessing until someone answers correctly.  A sample definition is: To keep moving because you are restless, bored, or nervous.  Want to take a guess?  The answer is: Fidget.  One more example: To climb up something, such as a ladder or a mountain.  The answer: Scale.  I am sure you can imagine how loud it can get with everyone shouting out ideas.  This game is definitely one to take with you for the hotel, beach, park, or wherever you might be going. You can purchase Travel Blurt on the Educational Insights website for $12.99. 

Now a little bit about Educational Insights:

Based in Southern California, Educational Insights, is the manufacturer of playful products with serious educational value, including subject-specific classroom products, teacher resources, educational toys, and games. Our products are designed by seasoned educators and parents who know that, first and foremost, learning must be fun.

Educational Insights is a favorite site of mine to find educational games and supplies.  While homeschooling 6 children, I am always looking for extra activities and games to add to our curriculum.  Teachers and parents alike will enjoy shopping on the Educational Insights website.  I would encourage my neighbors to stop by and check out what they have available.

One neighbor will win a Travel Blurt. 

Disclosure: I received no monetary compensation for this post. I did receive Travel Blurt for review purposes.  All thoughts and opinions are mine.
