School is in Session

I am pleased to report that the FringeFamily has survived two days of school without incident.  We even managed to have some fun!

If the next 178 days go as smoothly, I’ll have nothing to write about.

Does anyone have this game?  I recently found it at Barnes and Noble and I absolutely love it.  It’s creativity packed in a little box for $7.95 plus tax.

Each little cube is clad with a picture.  When rolled, combinations of pictures spark your imagination resulting in stories that will make you laugh, cry, or scratch your head in wonder.  Unless your children are full of bologna like mine, expect their first few stories to be short and sweet; however, after a few rolls their little minds will conjure up tales tall enough to reach the heavens.

As your children play, they explore the depths of their imaginations while building thinking, listening, and writing skills.  Remember, before your child can write creatively, he must think imaginatively.

No, I am not being paid for this plug.  I just think this game is worth sharing.  Go have fun with your kids!  They won’t even realize they are learning.

    I’ve been thinking that something like this might come in handy. I’m going to squirrel it away in the back of my mind—perhaps I’ll order it on Amazon some rainy-blah-winter day.

    That game looks like fun! My kids are 2 and 1- not quite to school age- but I work with my 2 year old a lot, and I think that even he could get something out of those cubes. What a great way to stimulate imagination! I am so excited to read your posts this year.

    PS your kids are so cute!

    They look so happy and you sound so happy! I think we have a winner Bob!
    I wanted to let you know I loved your post from yesterday. In a world full of cynics, how refreshing to hear some good news for a change. What wonderful friends you have! Doesn’t surprise me thought…birds of a feather and all!
