Activity Bags: Science & Preschool bags~ a TOS review

abf1I am privileged to be teaching all five of our girls at home. It is tough work, but I love it and would not trade it for the world! In the last four years I  have found that keeping the little ones engaged and occupied with quality materials makes it easier for me to teach the older girls. When the review opened for Activity Bags I knew I wanted to  try them out.

Activity Bags are the brain-child of two homeschool moms, Sherri MacLean and Paula Reetz, who have 11 children between the two of them. They created these bags as away to keep their preschoolers occupied while teaching their older children. There are currently 8 Activity Bags to choose from and we were given the opportunity to review the Preschool Bundle and the Science Bundle.

The Activity Bags are handy little eBooks that contain all the instructions, supply lists, and printable pages you need to make between 25 – 35 different activities that are easily stored in a gallon sized Ziploc bag. Economically priced at $15.00 each or bundled with two eBooks for $27.00 or three eBooks for $39.00 there is sure to be an Activity Bag in your price range.

Preschool Activities: book 1 & book 2

Science Experiments: book 1, book 2, & book 3

Reading Games: book 1

Travel Activities: book 1

Math Games: book 1

Preschool Activities in a Bag eBooks 1 & 2  help children get ready for Kindergarten by providing activities on ABC’s, 123s, sequencing, colors,  patterning, and motor skills. Each book features 33-34 activities that can be completed independently by preschoolers. The recommended age for these books are from 3-6 years old. I also found these to be a good refresher for my Kindergartener.

Science Activities in a Bag eBooks 1,2, & 3 each provide 25 science activities in which your child can touch, see, and manipulate to figure out what happens in the experiment.  Book 1 focuses its experiments on Biology, General Science, and Nature. Book 2 included experiments with a focus on Chemistry, Human Body, and General Science while Book 3 is all about Chemistry experiments. These eBooks are recommended for kids in K-8th grade.

McKenzie loves to “do school” right along with her sisters so I knew I wanted to try out the Preschool Activity bags and I needed to break from our current science curriculum while I “figured things out” for Mikayla’s science. Activity Bags has been just the thing I needed to fill the void for science and offer McKenzie fun school. We all had such a great time using the the bags and we would definitely recommend any and all of these Activity Bags to any family, homeschoolers or not! We have truly enjoyed using these bags and will continue to use them throughout the year(s).
