Accordion Book Printables

Accordion Book Printables

When my kids were little they loved mini accoridion books.  Something about the design really drew their attention.  My daughter especially loved them, begging me to make them with her.  I never really put all of the accordion books I created all in one place until now!

On the new Accordion Book page you’ll find all of these and I hope to add more in the future!  Alphabet, Shapes & Numbers, Bugs, Farm and Ocean are there now!

Download all of these for free here!

A House for Hermit Crab Unit Study with Ivy Kids Kit Review

A House for Hermit Crab Unit Study with Ivy Kids Kit

{disclaimer ~ Ivy Kids is a blog sponsor and sent us kits for this review}

Oh my word, am I ever in love with Ivy Kids Kits.  I am honestly a bit skeptical of monthly subscription kits so when I say this one blew me away, know that I mean it!  This is by far the best monthly subscription kit I have seen.

Ivy Kits are a monthly educational subscription for children ages 3-8 developed by early childhood teachers with children of their own. You can tell these kits were developed by people who truly know young kids.  The activities are awesome. Not only can you subscribe to a monthly kit, you can also buy past kits.

Each Ivy Kit contains instructions with ways to modify games to best suit each individual child and provide adults with questions to structure a child’s learning. There are enough games and materials in each kit to engage and cognitively stimulate a child throughout the month and can be replayed for years to come.

This is a photo of the top inside of the box, there is a fabulous reference guide on the box to show you all of the items and activities included at-a-glance. We were sent 3 kits for review and my daughter {age 6} chose to dig into “A House for Hermit Crab” first.  I will share a peek of the other kits we got at the end of the post since we haven’t used them yet.

When you subscribe to Ivy Kids, each month you will receive a very well organized kit containing a book and ten or more activities based upon the story. Everything you need to learn and play is included in your kit. I sorted out ALL that was included in our “A House for Hermit Crab” box on our dining room table and it barely fit.  Seriously, so many wonderful activities!

You’ll see that each activity has a very well written instruction and idea sheet.  I organized all of these in sheet protectors in a binder.  They come in these great plastic baggies, but this method worked better for my brain.

I kept all of the bigger items in the box, and when we chose an activity, I go to the box and grab what we need.

Activities From Our Box…

I let her choose what we do mostly, we still haven’t completed the entire kit. she went straight for the “Create a Hermit Crab Habitat” activity.  All of the little animals were included, and the sand!  There was also a growing hermit crab {the kind that grows in water over a few days}.  She put the habitat together all by herself.

She asked to add salt so it would be like an ocean!!  ha ha!

Decorating the hermit crab’s shell was her next choice. The kit came with tons of stickers to choose from, the big hermit crab poster and the paper plate for the shell. She loved this!

We played the hermit crab game together next…

I chose for us to do some work with months of the year, featuring this awesome included chart and the cards.  It was a great story sequencing activity!

Painting the sea creatures was a BIG hit of course!
