Myra Makes a Creative Learning Adventure
Besides sports, few activities keep both my youngest children occupied for more than five minutes at a time. Even then, they argue about EVERYTHING…even when they aren’t playing on the same team!
One day I received a message from Myra Makes asking if I would review a creative adventure book for kids 6-years and older. Well, OF COURSE, you’re going to send me a workbook that might possibly teach my children AND that will be fun for all of us? I’m all for that!
Even though Myra Makes approached me to review the workbook, all opinions in this post are my true opinions. I don’t post reviews for items I don’t fully believe in.
I have six kids…the oldest being 20 years old… in 20 years, we have experimented with so many learning workbooks, it’s insane. The problem was… they would get excited about them for about two seconds… and then lose interest.
The first time the boys opened the Myra Makes a Creative Learning Adventure workbook they immediately fell in love.
It’s More Than a Workbook
It’s seriously more than a workbook! I watched them the first time sitting together QUIETLY…I’m being serious…they were QUIET…discussing the pages. The craziest thing was this was Halloween night and they were hopped up on sugar!
Gage (who is ten) patiently read the pages to Michael (who is six), and they would actually have discussions. Gage would ask Michael questions about what he was reading, and Michael would actually answer.
They didn’t fight once, and were totally enthralled! It was amazing! We didn’t have acorns, so we used quarters. Gage and Michael spent hours counting and calculating!
Eventually, the boys fell asleep, so I started to read through the book and at every page, became more and more excited. The workbook was so much fun!
This isn’t just a workbook. It’s an adventure that helps families (yes, families) develop a love for empathy and critical thinking. The pages create an adventure that entice family members of all ages. You never get bored with it.
I asked Gage what he liked most about this book. His answer was that he loved “that you could cut the characters out and that the book had information teaching you about different stuff.” It made my Mama heart so happy that he was so excited to be learning.
I’m a working mom and just got a big promotion. The new position is exciting and challenging, and something I’ve worked REALLY hard to earn. The new position also means I’m on-call. Myra Makes created an activity the boys can do while I’m working and preparing for calls. It truly was a live-saver!!
I couldn’t be more excited!
