Smart Games For Christmas Gifts!! #HGG2015

Games are a favorite with our entire family, but I especially love games that educate or work your brain while you're playing. I just discovered an entire website devoted to this type of toys and games, and we were actually able to review one of them, the IQ Twist.


IQ Twist is a logic game for one person that really does make you think. Definitely not a mindless game you can play on your phone without engaging the brain! I enjoy games we can play with the family, but this is handy for road trips, sitting at the dentist's office, or just for some quiet time alone. It's very easy to get the hang of, and has levels for beginners up to super-smart people! It comes in a handy case that makes it easy to toss in your purse or luggage, without fear of losing any pieces. 



To play, remove the twisted playing pieces, and set up the "board" by placing pegs in according to a challenge shown in the book. Then put all the twisted pieces back on the board, until you have all the pieces on. Sounds easy, but there's only one possible solution, so it's not as easy as you think. This is going to be so much fun to use on our upcoming road trips, and I know all the kids are going to want to take a turn at it. 



Check out Smart Games for even more fun games to challenge your brain! You can shop by age or type, and these would make great Christmas gifts for children and adults alike!

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).
