Ivy Kids September Kit Review
If you are not familiar with Ivy Kids you will find them to be a great educational tool for you to help your kids at home. You can read my introductory post of Ivy Kids and the July & August Kit Reviews HERE.
My Mr Z loves Ivy Kids Kits! This summer we reviewed the July & August Kits so when our September Kit arrived I did not even have to say what it was. He jumped up and down and asked it that was his fun kit!
I LOVE how everything arrives organized and ready to go! We open the box to find all the materials we need including detailed instructions packaged in labeled zip lock bags. Your instructions along with everything you will need are all grouped together. No digging through a box trying to find the materials you will need.
Each activity sheet explains to you the materials provided, how to play, age related tips, the goals you are trying to develop, the skills you are teaching, and suggested questions for you to ask to enhance the educational growth of your child.
