One of a Kind Literacy and Activity Bags Review

IMG 0333 300x168 One of a Kind Literacy and Activity Bags ReviewI was pleasantly surprised when I received my One of a Kind Literacy and Activity Bags package. What a cute idea! The bag I received had a snowman theme (There were lots more items than what is pictured here). So many items I received have been assimilated into our household already, but I know there were 10 or more snowman related items including picture books, activity books, note pads, stamps, a stuffed animal, and a drawstring bag. This would have been even more fun to use when my children were little. We used Five in a Row and could have really used some theme bags like this.

These theme bags would be great to use if you were teaching a certain portion of science or history and really wanted to make the theme stick with your children. If you were studying butterflies and your children received a butterfly activity package in the mail, they would be thrilled! There is a whole list of choices for themes for activity bags at http://www.one-of-a-kindliteracyandactivitybags.com/litbagsthemes.htm. You will find all aspects of learning represented here from holidays, favorite characters, music, history, science,toys, sports, and more. I’m a firm believer in the fact that the more senses children use, the more they learn and retain the material being studied.

If someone ran a preschool, these would be great for activity centers. Homeschool parents can also use these activity bags for centers or even workbox fillers. Parents who use the workbox method of homeschooling like to have hands on resources they can use to reinforce the units that their students are studying.

I can see so many possibilities of ways to use these bags. Parents who use unit studies would also enjoy these as a way to bring even more learning into the unit. Sometimes when there is a new baby in the family, a week of sickness for several family members, a big holiday coming up where mom is very preoccupied, or just any time there needs to be a break from workbook learning, literacy and activity bags can come to the rescue! Activity bags can be used in the car when traveling or just for a fun summer learning activity, but you don’t have to tell the kids that they are learning.

I can’t imagine the amount of work or inventory you would need to run a service like this, but it’s awfully nice to know that this service exists. You can even get custom made bags for you as long as you check the website and ask. One of a Kind Literacy and Activity bags are just $15.00 plus shipping which is a great price in my book. Check out their website and see what they have to offer.
