Working Klutz Books into our Educational Curriculum #KlutzBooks

We’ve just recently decided to take Miles out of preschool and keep him home for this year which means, I’m teaching him at home. He’s already learned his ABC’s colors, numbers and shapes and it’s my job to makes sure he remembers all those things he learned and try to take him a step further. Plus I want to give him a lot of enriching experiences at home and Klutz books help me do just that. IMG_5936

As you may know, I recently became a Klutz Books Brand ambassador and they sent me six different books that I can use with both of my children and we already have two other boos in our Klutz library. I have a feeling we have another one somewhere but I couldn’t find it in the mess known as my son’s closet. I can over a wide assortment of subjects.

Marvelous Book of Magical Horses
Kids Cooking  – We have been cooking out of the Kids Cooking cookbook for years now and it’s so much fun. Both of my children have such a love for helping in the kitchen and it includes clean up and I couldn’t be happier.

A Parent’s Perspective:

The thing I’ve noticed most about the kids’ experiences using the Klutz books is that they don’t realize they are learning anything. They are creating, using their imaginations, and retaining information through experience and fun. Plus each book or single activity in the book keeps them busy for about an hour, for Zoe, I think she could spend all day playing with the Magical Horses. I’ve always wanted to get her a set of paper dolls and now she has paper dolls and paper horses. Miles keeps asking a lot of question, and his dexterity has improved a great deal. I can tell because he can actually make really great cuts in the paper used to create the Star Wars Folded Flyers!
