Back to school with Osmo! Hot Wheels Mindracers!

I LOVE Osmo.. and I am SUPER excited that we get to review their products.

They have a new set out now that the boys absolutely love! It’s Hot Wheels Mindracers! There is an app that you download on an iPad along with an actual set that you can get hands on with. This set comes with the track, 5 cars, tokens and a storage container for the cars. The track even has a place for the tokens to be stored in!

We had trouble with the game at first. It wouldn’t see that the cars were in place on the track.. so.. we tried again the next day and it worked just fine! We realized the red reflector on the top of the iPad just needed a good cleaning!

The game was super easy to use. For the tokens, you would toss them onto the track. It would then do something to you or your opponents car. Either spin them, or give you a boost, etc.

As you progress through the game you unlock other parts of the game. You can play against someone or use a robot!

BIG thank you to Proloso for sending us these! We received these before our trip to Sweet Suite and just didn’t get to review these before hand.

This is a pretty awesome toy, more like a science learning toy! This would be great for the classroom or Homeschooling. Zieke even mentioned taking this to school.. haha.. (which of course I said no, he would more than likely get in trouble unless this was actually for school, which it should be!)

We talked about magnets and how some ends click together and others don’t. They have fun creating!

This is what the container looks like:

I thought for sure it was going to be silver, but we got the multicolored ones!

I have seen several videos on YouTube for these, so actually getting these was pretty awesome!

See LJ’s little person he created? It’s so cute! lol

They actually all come off separately. They are super small, so I definitely wouldn’t recommend these for small kids. The ages are actually 14+ on the container. I guess some kids might put these up their noses or even in their ears, even though I think even 7 or 8+ would have been more accurate.

Boys have probably played with these at least 5 times since we reviewed them! So, YES, I think the boys would say they liked them lol 😉

Needless to say, if we DO decide to homeschool, we will totally be using these!

Sick day = DIY Play-dough Day! School is starting soon!

I so hate it when my boys get sick. They are ALL THREE recovering from either a cold or really bad allergies. Not only are they miserable, but so is Mommy! They haven’t slept well for 4 nights now, so I feel like a Mombie! ha!

Trying to entertain 3 kids sick, isn’t easy. Especially when all you feel like doing is sleeping! (only if the boys felt that way too Ha) We can’t anywhere either, or out side for that matter, since its been raining her for a few day straight. So I decided to make some play-dough. We used to make this all the time, but haven’t in awhile so this was something fun to do again.

The boys usually help me measure and mix everything, then I cook it over the stove top.

Click HERE for the recipe we used and below is the video we did from our Thomas channel:

 

We love this play-dough, it’s so warm and calming and it smells great too! This is definitely our favorite recipe.

What are your favorite things to do at home when it rains or when the kids are sick? Let me know in the comment section, I need MORE ideas, especially for Baby A for when the older too are back in school.Which brings me to the next subject…

SCHOOL.. more like ….KINDERGARTEN! Eek!

Zieke starts Kindergarten in 3 weeks.. and I am NOT ready for it. He will be gone from 8:30am – 3:30pm. Such a long time. Zieke and LJ started preschool last year but were only gone for 3.5 hours. So by the time I took them, came back, had lunch and Aaron took a nap, it was time to get them.

I have been debating about Homeschooling him, but just don’t know where or when we will be moving. Some of the schools in our area are ok, some.. not so much.

Our school system now a days are so out of wack. Not to mention, school shootings, peer pressure and the list goes on..

I told my Husband we will see how his first few weeks go and then revisit it then.

I mean, can I even do it? I guess for the first few years, but after that.. not so sure. Math was definitely NOT my strongest subject, BUT I feel I have accomplished a lot in life, and I was Homeschooled.

We were part of a Homeschool group were we had music, drama, art & gym. It was great! A lot of people seem to think Homeschoolers are odd, but really we aren’t! We were socialized just as much as any other public school attending kid. Just because we didn’t go somewhere everyday didn’t mean we weren’t social. We went to two groups per week, plus we were active in our church.

So, I dunno. Life is busy too.. I guess I will continue to think and pray, while trying to stay awake.. ha!
