Story Time Chess for the Holidays!

Hi Neighbors!!

Story Time Chess is a really neat gift idea for your children this year.  It is designed to teach young children how to play chess and it is recommended for ages 3 and up.  I really love the concept of this game.  We have 6 children, all grown now, but my husband taught each of them to play chess.  We ended up with two who love to play and beat their dad.  The others still play, they just are not quite as competitive at it.

Teaching Story Book

This set of Story Time Chess comes with an instruction book for parents, a storybook to read to the children, standard chess instructions, a double sided chessboard (standard chess side and story side), a set of custom chess pieces, 32 Character Cutouts, 30 Crown Tokens, a Crown Card game mat and 30 Crown Cards.

Chess pieces and Card Game

Story Time Chess teaches chess one piece at a time.  There is a story about each King and how he can move with a cute lesson to help your child remember.  Each piece has a story, so there are 8 chapters in all.  Work at your child's pace.  Some may catch on faster, while other may need more time.  You work on one piece at a time until your child understands how that piece can move.  Keep practicing with that piece, and add a new piece.  The Character Cutouts are to place on the pines to help your child recognize each piece.  They can be removed once your child understands the game and pieces.  The Crown Card Game is to play after your child has learned all of the pieces and how they move.  I can see how this method would really help a child learn to play chess.

Character Cutouts

A funny story here.  When one of my daughters was 5, she was visiting a friend who asked if she wanted to play checkers.  She quickly explained that she did not know how, but would love to play chess!!

Extra Game

So consider a Story Time Chess set ($49.99) for your child or grandchild.  Visit the Story Time Chess website and then follow them on their social media.

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). You can also record your training sessions to learn more about how your body respon
