As a homeschooling mom I absolutely love discovering fun products that are educational and fun. I think any parent can appreciate that! I am particularly drawn to that not only offer an educational opportunity but really help draw out our kids’ creativity as well!
Disclosure: I received a two month subscription to facilitate my review. Regardless, all opinions are my own and those of my family.
Animal Trackers Club offers an educational monthly subscription box for children ages 3+. Kids get to go on a Safari adventure with Bode Bear. Each adventure starts with the Introduction to Animal Trackers Club, which includes a Safari Lunch Box, an African Safari Information Card, Cover and Ring for the Safari Animal Photo Collection, Savanna Art Project, and Savanna Animal Cards Activity. Each additional month, your child(ren) will receive information and activities based on a specific animal.
For our review we received the introductory Animal Trackers Club pack and the Zebra pack.
Introduction to Animal Trackers Club
The introduction to Animal Trackers Club is really a great kit. Our kids love the lunch box, and I love how it opens the door for future animal packs. For example, the I particularly love the cover and ring for the Safari Animal Photo Collection. Each month when you receive a new animal pack you get a picture to add to the ring!
Plus, you get introductory activities right off the bat! It has great educational information, which I always love. In fact, we have used activities from our Animal Trackers Club during our homeschooling day a few times already! The Savanna Animal Cards can be used for a variety of activities, and they offer plenty of ideas!
I think what I love most, though, is that it is ideal for a such a wide age range. All three of our children (ages 4, 6, and 8) have benefit from and enjoyed various activities! Our preschooler may have gone a little overboard with the Savanna Art Project, but he surely had fun doing it!
The Zebra Pack includes a couple of activities, an information card, a zebra play figure, mask, magnet, and photo card. Our kids were so excited! Not only did we learn more about the zebra, but they got to have a lot of fun, too! They all have been having a blast with their play figure and mask!
I love that the activities included in the Zebra Pack are varied. Not only did we learn about zebras, but the kids got to practice their Math as well. Although this little Math activity is better suited for younger children, I still has our older children do it as well because I’m always a fan of reinforcing Math skills – even basics!
Plus, they got to do a fun Art activity as well! I can’t believe we’ve never used Magic Nuudles, but they are sooo fun! You simply get them a little wet, stick them on the paper, and voila! This was such a fun activity, and the kids got to practice their fine motor skills!
Overall, we’re definitely happy with the Animal Trackers Club! We enjoyed both kits, and I think it’s great for homeschooling parents and any parents with young children ages 3 and up! I love that they offer the opportunity to receive these great educational kits each month for just $11.95 plus $3 shipping!
