Each year we travel south so the big kids can see their dad. This time we went to Panama City Beach, Florida and stayed for awhile.
We found tons of sea cucumbers. Theb one full dead star fish, that we get to bring home to preserve. We also found a neat looking fish, still trying to figure out what kind. Then we found some washed up coral that had lots of tiny star fish crawling all over it. There was also a man of war jellyfish.
Product: Climbing Knights
Age: 8 and up
SimplyFun provided me with the super fun game called Climbing Knights. This game is intended for 8 years old and up, however my 7 year old was able to catch on too and play. It is also for use with 2 to 4 players. The object of the game is to get your night to climb the top of your tower first. However, you have to miss the guards that are lurking around you. There is some thinking involved in this to get your strategy to pass them by. This is where it was a bit more tricky for my 7 year old vs my 9 and 11 year old that were playing. It took him a bit to catch onto the skill of knowing what was going to happen and that he needed to have a plan of action. Once he played several times during the first day it finally clicked with him on what to do. My older girls really loved it. They begged daily to play and I could hear them cheering along when one would pass a guard. It seemed more fun to do that than actually "win" the game in the end.
Here is a couple added review quotes from my kids.
"I liked the game because it was really fun to put it up with the players. I liked that it was an actual 3D castle instead of like some games being just a flat board. I also liked the guards going to sleep because it gave more choices to move." Kailea (who is 11 years old.)
"I liked it because it is something to do when you get board. It is very fun." Kiya (who is 9 years old)
"I liked the game because you can stick the people on other metal because they are magnets. (Insert laughing.) Also I like it because it is big." Micah (who is 7)

These eco friendly pads are a great addition to a cloth family. They absorb well as well as wash well. Having a black center also means no visible staining. They wash well, I just throw them in with my other cloth from my home. The little bag rhey come with is great for when you are out and fits nicely in your purse. The snaps work well and keep the pad in place. The stitching was all great and no irregular marks. The pattern was pretty as well. I recieved mine at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
