Monday Math + GIVEAWAY!!

Growing up, the focal point of our Thanksgiving decorations was mom's cornucopia. I was fascinated by all the different fabric foods and how they were arranged--especially the mushrooms. I hate mushrooms now, so I'm not sure about the attraction, but I loved to sneak and play with them. :)

Those fabulous 70's prints are as much a part of my Thanksgiving memories as turkey and pumpkin pie!

When I was trying to come up with a design for a Thanksgiving card game, the brightly patterned mushrooms and all their stuffed friends kept coming back to me. Which is how I ended up with this:
It's part of an addition came called Harvest Bounty. Players practice adding numbers--with a Thanksgiving twist!


This game is geared toward 6 to 9-year-olds, but by using fewer cards, younger learners could easily play.

Now onto the good stuff...

  1. Cute games! I think I would pick Banana split or Falling Leaves (for some math review with my 2nd grader - he's working on mastering some of those addition facts). And Welcome to the neighborhood looks cute -- I've been looking for something like this for my 5 year old preschooler (missed the kinder cut-off) who already knows all her letters and sounds.

  2. I really can't pick -- you've done a great job incorporating creativity and learning. That cornucopia is darling! My grandma had a large display with beaded always fascinated me.

  3. I so remember that 70's fabric. My sister made a quilt out of this exact fabric. It was used as her bedspread for part of the 70's and most of the 80's. Fun memories! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. :)

  4. My boy is only 1, so definitely one of the alphabet games (love the soaring through space one), and I also love the falling leaves one.
