Let’s Go Activities – Learning In A Box #Giveaway

If there’s one thing I’m not, it’s a natural born (effective and compassionate) teacher. Oh, sure, I can “teach” things to people, but if you don’t get it the first 3 times or you start messing with the order of things? My head explodes.

Honestly, that’s a huge reason why I pay to send my kid to preschool, and why the thought of homeschooling sounds about as appealing to me as shoveling horse shit. (Believe me, I’m sure it would be worse for the kids than having them shovel horse shit.)

I hate filling down time here with lots of TV shows, though, and Kendall has such a thirst for learning right now. I’ve tried to find cutesy crafts and lessons on Pinterest and at the nearest educational store, but it’s all so… hard for me to coordinate.

I was THRILLED when a local company reached out to me a few months ago to review their activity packs because I really needed something to do with Kendall on the days he’s not in preschool, and I wanted someone else to tell me exactly what to do and how to do it.

Let’s Go ActivitiesΒ makesΒ activity kits, which are boxes built around a central theme, and they include nearly everything (with the exception of some items you probably already have and anything you have to buy fresh from the grocery store), to pull off crafts, lessons, even kid-friendly recipes!

We chose the farm one, and it was immediately tons of fun for Kendall. He colored and made a farm scene from stickers while Leyna napped and I worked.

What? Pinterest is “work” for me sometimes. I swear!

I made sure to stop and guide him along the activities he was working on, but I was also able to let him work independently while we both quietly shared a bag of popcorn.

Since then, we’ve done just about every activity included, and we’re getting ready for another kit. I can’t wait to sit down with him and let him pick out the next one. For us, I would guess the box lasted about 6 weeks. That was just doing a little something 1-2 times a week. It will really depend on how much you want to get done in a day with it as to how long the kit will last you.

Each kit sells for about $23, and you can purchase a booster kit for $7 if you’d like to stretch the supplies to accommodate an extra child.

Let’s Go Activities wants to send a kit of your choice to one of you, so check out the box below to see how you can win!

  • Jennifer - We would definitely enjoy the farm pack in this house. Every book we read is centered on farms or farm animals. Plus I am amazing at imitating their little noises so it automatically drags everything out a little longer and becomes a “learning experience”. πŸ˜‰ReplyCancel

  • Jill - this is so awesome! I think we’d end up with the bugs or all aboard box. this is exactly what I would love to put together on my own for my kid, but like you, I’m kind of …. not good at that. mostly figuring out what to DO.

    I posted about this on my blog page and was told I was ‘cramming’ worksheets down my kid’s throat… that kids learn best by play.. who says a worksheet with stickers CAN’T be play, along with the 5 million other things kids play with?

    so glad you found this, and I would LOVE to win!ReplyCancel

  • Jackie @ MomJovi - Oh, this is awesome! I feel the same same way. My daughter is in preschool four days a week while I’m at work and we’re both home on Fridays. I have a bad tendency to let her watch too much tv because it’s my one day to catch up on laundry, house projects and blogging. She LOVES coloring right now and any sort of project but I’m definitely missing the craft gene. I subscribe to all these magazines but then every craft seems too hard to pull together without my constant supervision. I would choose either the Ocean kit or the Bugs and Butterflies one. I wish there was a space one because that’s her current obsession. These are great!ReplyCancel
