Simply Fun-Sponsor Spotlight #ABE2

The next A Blogtastic Extravaganza sponsor I want to brag about it Simply Fun.

They were kind enough to send me these three games:

Bank It!

BANKIT

Telling Time with Tibbar

tellingtime

Our World Puzzle Set

Out of the 3, Bank It! is by far, the most popular game in our family.  That’s not to say they don’t enjoy the other 2, it’s just that they LOOOOOOOOVE Bank It! Smile

Here they are playing the game.  Basically, you have to go to stores and buy something, but you also have to make sure to save enough money to buy a bicycle at the end of the game.  It is a great game to teach about how much to spend and has already helped my kids with their money counting skills.

The Telling Time with Tibbar game is memory game that teaches you how to tell time by traditional clock, digitally and military time (24 hour).  I like that, because even my 9 year old can learn something from it.  I haven’t taught her military time, but she will learn it now!

The Our World Puzzle Set is the perfect addition to any child’s puzzle set!  It will be especially beneficial if you are teaching the solar system or doing a study on geography.

I love all these games because the kids are learning while playing a game.  There really is no better way to learn, in my opinion.

Wanna hear the good news??

Simply Fun is providing these same games to the winner of my A Blogtastic Extravaganza Back to ‘Home’ School Package!!

Come back right before the event so you can score some extra entries into the giveaway.  Then, of course, come by Aug. 17-21 for the actual event and enter on my blog and then on everyone else’s too!

I love games that not only teach but also provide hours of entertainment for the kids. More time for mommy to sneak some ice cream when they arent looking.

Hmmm I'm wondering if I can learn anything from Bank It! I think the games you listed above are perfect even for non-home schoolers. What a great way to teach a lesson.

I always learned better in school when games were played instead of just listening to lectures!

Emily @ Baby Dickey said...

These look fun, I think I'd like the telling time one! I mean, my son would like that one--you know what I mean ;)

I'll be entering! I love that telling time game! Games that are fun and educational are the best!

Summer @ Banana Hammocks & Tutus said...

I need games that Styles can play with his friends without me where they're actually learning something.

Bank It looks like a really fun way to teach kids about managing money. As a new mom, I'm all for things that make teaching life lessons a little easier. Thanks for sharing!
