Minecraft Math Cubes

This is another set similar to the Minecraft Story Cubes I posted a couple of weeks ago. Again, I honestly wish I would have thought of this idea when my son was younger and needed help practicing math facts. There are 3 cubes and the goal is to use them to practice addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Throw the cubes into the air, see whatever topic appears, and then let your imagination take over. Example from the cubes above: 10 divided by 2 = Here is another example: 12 + 4 =   *Disclosure: this post may contain affiliate links.

3D Drawing Pen

Disclosure: I received a free Atmosflare 3D Drawing Pen and was compensated for my time in reviewing the product, sharing the product’s features and my honest opinion with my readers. Be sure to enter giveaway for a chance to win one of thirty 3D pens for yourself. Left Brain, Right Brain Encouraging art in an extreme left-brained child can be very challenging. My son is not artistic.

Word of the Day Mug

I love mugs. My 2 favorite mugs are an oversized Winnie the Pooh mug and a Star Trek transporter mug that “magically” transports the crew members when you pour in a hot liquid. When I bought my Silhouette CAMEO, one of the first things I did was run out to Old Time Pottery and stock up on mugs and glassware. This mug belongs to my son. It is his word-of-the-day mug. It is a delicious way to introduce new vocabulary words!  The little book is cut from black vinyl. Did you know that vinyl is very similar to a chalkboard.…
