The boys love playing on the iPad, but we don't want them to have too much screen time so we limit their iPad access to a couple of times a week. They have to take turns and I usually tell them that they have to play educational games first. I noticed that when my five year old was playing the Kangaroo Island games, he kept playing them. He didn't switch to the less educational games after the allotted time. He was having fun and learning at the same time.
There are six games in the Kangaroo Island Photo Classifying App, giving children options when playing. My boys love being able to make choices and switch to different games. My three and five year olds both said their favorite game is the painting game otherwise known as Koala Canvas. In the game they help Cole the Koala identify the correct items in a category while painting a picture.
In the Kangaroo Island Photo Classifying App, children learn to name and classify 336 items in 15 different categories:
- Lowercase Letters
- Uppercase Letters
- Numbers 1-20
The boys are learning so much while playing these games. They asked me questions about lowercase and uppercase letters while playing and started to recognize the differences on their own. You can see my five year old playing one of the classifying games in the video below. Notice how the game corrects him by making him try again when he puts something in the wrong category.
The boys have really enjoyed playing these games and will for a long time. This app is designed for Pre-K and up and is for Apple iPad only. You can learn more about the Kangaroo Island Photo Classifying App at Super Duper Publications.Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post, however, I did receive this product for review.

My son's preschool class had been learning about silkworms this Spring and he was allowed to take some home on the last day of school. He was so excited.
He has spent a lot of time observing his silkworms and predicting what will happen next. He checks on them several times a day and reports any new developments. It has been a neat experience for all of us to watch the silkworms change into moths and to learn about the life cycle of these unique creatures.
My 5 year old has been very responsible in taking care of his "pets". Twice a day he feeds his silkworms Mulberry leaves that he picks from a tree in our yard, and then after checking on them makes sure his silk worms are in a secure location. They have to be kept out of reach of our two year old and 3 year old. If you have a toddler you know why… they really do get into everything.
Two of our silk worms already transformed into moths and fell in love. The next thing you know we have over 100 silk worm eggs. They haven't hatched yet, but we are waiting to see if they do. I'll let you know if our silk worm adventure continues into another generation.

You can be gorgeous at thirty, charming at forty and irresistible for the rest of your life – Coco Chanel
Today I turned 37 and I like what Coco Chanel has to say about age. I'll go with gorgeous and charming and maybe a little forgetful. I forgot to buy candles so we improvised with a candle my son made in preschool. He didn't understand why I helped him blow out the candle. He wanted to do it all by himself.
I love simple, pretty things like these pop bottle vases with fresh cut flowers. We gave a pop bottle vase with fresh flowers to each of my older sons' preschool teachers this Spring. Frugal and Repurposed gifts from the home are the best and you can never go wrong with fresh flowers.
Pretty enough for a wedding too. My parents 1974 wedding featured daisies in coke bottles.
My husband's grandmother planted these bulbs years ago and they still come up year after year. I wish they lasted longer. They are always so beautiful.
