Activity Bags

This article is in collaboration with Activity Bags.

For the past few weeks, the Review Crew has had the pleasure of reviewing many products from Activity Bags.  The products reviewed include the following:

Science Experiments in a Bag E-Book 1: This book provides examples of 25 simple science experiments in Biology, General Science, and Nature that you can do at home.  Science Experiments in a Bag E-Book 2: Like E-Book 1, this book provides examples of 25 more experiments, but this time in Chemistry, Human Body and Science, and General Science.  Science Experiments in a Bag E-Book 3: Focused all on Chemistry this time, there are 25 more great science experiments on-the-go in this collection.  The Science Experiments line is for Grades K-8.

Some Crew members also received Reading Games in a Bag, 20 reading game instructions for new and beginning readers.

Crew members were also treated to Travel Activities in a Binder,  a collection of classic (and some new!) ways to divert kids on car trips.  As a slight departure from the typical “in a bag” format, all you have to is print off the activity pages, put them in plastic page protectors, avail yourself of dry erase markers, and go!

Math Games in a Bag consists of 33 games for teaching Elementary school aged children math concepts.  Most games are designed for 2 or more children.
Crew members also got to try the Bags that started it all: Preschool Activities in a Bag 1 and Preschool Activities in a Bag 2.
All of the Activities in a Bag follow the same format.  By using simple materials found around the house, you can compile bags (literally, plastic zip lock bags) for your children to work on, largely independently.  Since this concept appeals to all homeschool moms, you’ll definitely want to read all of the Crews’ reviews on these innovative products.
