So I am a HUGE Geek/Gamer at heart. I read comic books – even have a tattoo of my favorite comic book couple, Rogue & Gambit. My favorite movies are Marvel movies – Guardians, Spiderman, X-Men, etc… – and come on, my twitter handle is MarvelGoddess24! I love video games – Skyrim, Fallout, Lego games, Final Fantasy (of course), Arkham series, the list goes on. I seriously could spend hours listing my favorite video games. The Walking Dead is one of my favorite TV shows along with Game of Thrones. I read TWD comics and have read all the GoT books (twice). The last two movies I went to see in the theater were TMNT & Guardians of the Galaxy. I feel pretty strongly that Loot Crate was created just for me – ha! And when I opened up my first ever one this week, I about cried at all the awesomeness. I think they were inside my head and knew exactly what I wanted!
As most of you should know by now, my family and I love ThinkFun games! They are, honestly, pretty much the only games we play. And we play games a lot. At least one or two a day, if not more. These games are always a blast to play – and my kiddos learn and have no idea they are doing so! ThinkFun hit the ball out of the park again with Zingo: Word Builder!
Here in upstate New York one of the biggest attractions of the summer is Harborfest in Oswego. This is only about a 15 minute drive for us and we went last year. We were very excited to go again this year because our youngest is at the age where she will be able to play. We opted just to go to the children’s section. The first thing we did when we got there was let the girls rides horses. They were $5.00 each and they got to ride a “sparkly” horse around for 3 laps in a tiny fenced off area. I suppose it was worth it though because they loved it!
Since I stay home with my girls, I try to do fun things that also help them learn every day. We have workbooks, which are great for letters and numbers, but when I discovered the Animal Trackers Club, I thought it would be the perfect addition to our “lessons”. #AnimalTrackersClub is a monthly subscription box for your little pre-reader (ages 3+). Each month will be centered around a different animal and you will receive a fact sheet, magnet, toy, project, mask, tracks card, and worksheets!
