Child Up Review and Giveaway



I run a daycare and am always looking for products that I can use for all ages.  Or at least most of the ages.  I review products with the kids to see how they work and what the kids think of them.  Some of  them work out and I post about them, some don't and I don't waste your time.  I was sent some learning cards to test on the kids for ages 1-5.  Here is my Review of Child Up's Learning Card Games on numbers.







I started by getting all the kids together and sat down with them.  We shared the cards each doing a different activity.  The youngest, my 1 year old, and told him what the animals were on his card and the number, we worked on trying to say each vocab.  I think he was happy just to have a card like the big kids.





The next was my 2 year old that didn't want her photo taken today.  We worked on animal identification, and counting, she enjoyed the different animals on each card. And likes to hold them herself when she counts.




The oldest was 3 1/2 and she is starting to work on numbers past ten, having the different animals on the card led to a fun challenge for her as she could count each type of animal and then count them together, an instant start to addition.
Now we could play a game of matching the cards of animals to where they lived, plus identifying the animals in there environment and counting them.






The where do they go game worked great for memory on the blank scenery card.  They could show me where the animals had been in the first scenery card which they loved!






I loved that the numbers went past 25 and the cards could be used for a ton of different games, learning tools, and ages making my job easier.  I give this a full five counting fingers of fun rating!
