Whenever we have storytime my 4 year old sits so nicely and listens. My two year old sits for about two minutes and then starts doing summersaults and bounces around the room. So it is hard to work with both of them at the same time. When I found Story Time Felts I was excited because it is a felt board with pieces so you can visually create the story right in front of you while you are reading, or even independently from reading. Which means no more just sitting through the stories. The kids now become an active part of the story.
I received "The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly" to review. We had such a fun time with this. Each kid got to choose a few felt animals and then we would sing the song. When we would get to the animal, whoever was holding the animal got to (literally) stick the animal in the lady's mouth. I was amazed at how much fun they had with something so simple. And I have to admit there are a few days where I have actually hidden the felts so they wouldn't find it and ask for it. You can only sing that song so many times a day before you go crazy!!
But I really love the concept behind Story Time Felts. There are no batteries. It makes no noise. It gives your children freedom to use their imagination freely and create their own stories. There is a wide variety of different products available including board stories and dress-ups.
My favorite product, as a homeschool mom, is the educational toggles. All toggles include a Toggle Book Bag, book, figures, lessons, worksheets and activities. They help with basic reading concepts, color matching, elementary math skills & shape recognition. It is such a great way to make learning fun.
One lucky winner will win "The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly"
