Activity Bags


Hey neighbors!

Activity Bags is our newest homeschool curriculum for review.We received the Travel Activities in a Binder, which I thought would be perfect for our trip.  Now, here is the bad news, I downloaded the PDF file to my iPad and planned on printing it off when we reached our friends.  Well, my iPad was stolen as many of you know who follow At the Fence regularly.  Good thing we managed to get home in time to actually do something.

For $15 you will receive the Travel Activities, which in actuality is designed to be a binder.  With the other Activity Bags, you actually place everything in a bag, but for this one you use a binder.  First of all you need to print off all the pages.  You may want to pick and choose as you print, because since these are designed for swapping with friends and other homeschoolers they print the directions more than once.  And if you are like me, you hate to waste ink!

After you print the pages you place them in page protectors.  You will need to purchase:
Page Protectors
A Three Ring Notebook
Dry Erase Markers
A Soft Cloth or Paper Towel
A Zippered Pencil Case to carry supplies
Dice
Blindfold
Place your pages, in there protectors into your notebook.  You are now ready to travel.  Your children will be entertained playing games as you travel.  You can also use this for visits to the doctor or dentist, as quiet time while other children are homeschooling, when you are on the phone, and any other time you need to keep your child quietly occupied.  Personally I think it is a good idea to keep these for special times, that way your child will not become easily bored.

You will find games like:
Dot to Dot
Mazes
Songs to Sing
And one of my children's favorites, Hangman

The other Activity Bags are designed to be put together and placed in a zip lock bag, so your child has an activity on a bag.  You can also have swaps with these bags, where several of you get together and swap out activities.  I didn't review any of these, but other Crew Members did, so be sure to click on the banner at the bottom of the post to learn more.




I really believe there are quite a few moms out there, homeschooling and otherwise, who would enjoy the Activities in a Bag.  Click the banner below to read more reviews from other Crew Members.

Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes).
