LEGO® Creation Product Review 31019


LEGO Creator 31019 Product Review, LEGO Creator Monkey
LEGO® Creator 31019

I received this set for Christmas as a gift from my family.  It was super fun to build.

I love how the monkey has parts that can move.  His mouth can be opened, his eyebrows raised, his ears adjusted, tail curls, and his legs, arms, and hands move.  It also comes with a toucan that has wings and tail that move and a banana to feed your monkey.  I think LEGO® did an awesome job with this creation.  I would really like to see more sets like this one.  How can you go wrong building things from God's wonderful creation.   I would also like to add that this set comes with some fun pieces that can be so useful in building creations of your own.  I love the new eyeball pieces and I can't wait to use them on some of my own creations.  This set is a three in one and can be broken down and rebuilt as either a bear or squirrel.  You will not be disappointed with this one!

As I mentioned, this set was a gift but, I think that it is reasonably priced for the pieces you receive. The next set on my list is LEGO® Creator 31021 Furry Creatures. I love these new sets from LEGO® Creator.

Hope you enjoy this creation.

God Bless,
CJ

K5 Learning Product Review

http://www.k5learning.com/?k5ref=www.buildinglegoswithchrist.blogspot.com

I recently blogged about the opportunity to review the K5 Online Learning Program in exchange for my honest review.

K5 is an online reading and math program for kids grade kindergarten to 5th grade.  It can be used for homeschoolers or kids attending school.   When you start the program they provide you with an online assessment of your reading and math skills.  I liked being able to see that I was on track with my learning and areas of strength and weaknesses.  The program is customized to your learning assessment so, you are not bored with learning things you already know. 

K5 Reading is used to helps kids develop a love of reading. The program covers phonemic awareness, phonics, sight words, vocabulary, and reading comprehension.

K5 Math program helps kids have a better understanding of math concepts that helps build self confidence.  The Math program covers numbers and operations, geometry, measurement (including time and money), algebraic thinking and data analysis.

K5 Spelling helps improves language skills with advanced vocabulary.  They feature adaptive instruction, automatic word generation, an optimized visual interface, and a 150,000+ word database.  One of my spelling words was cigarette which I did find a little unusual.

 K5 Math Facts helps kids develop instant recall of basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts. I loved working with my multiplication facts and the 5 minute time reward of game play was really awesome! 

Some of the benefits for kids using K5 is that you can work independently, progress at your own pace, and do not feel pressured.

 Benefits for parents include a program that organizes, instructs, and quizzes your child and provides reports to you.  It teaches your child to work independently.  The program provides safety with no ads, no chat, & no external links. It is convenient and can be used 24/7 with a computer and internet connection with nothing to download or install.  The content is award-winning and aligned with national standards. The program is personalize to your child’s skills, not their age or grade level. The lessons are interactive.

How much does it cost?

Get unlimited use of 4 programs for $25.00 a month for one child and $15.00 for additional children.  They also offer an annual subscription for $199.00 for one child and $129.00 for additional children.


Overall, I would definitely use K5 Learning again!  I found the lessons to be fun and was not bored with the program.  I did not find any offensive material.  It was a very enjoyable experience that I was able to work on at my own pace.  The reward game time for working on my multiplication tables made it a fun.  I continued to return to this section because it was so fun.  I hope you will give K5 Learning a try if you are looking for a supplement to your current educational needs.

I have tried several programs out there and by far this one has been the best that I have found!

Thank you K5 Learning for offering this free program trial for my honest review!

God Bless,
CJ

Time 4 Learning Product Review

Time For Learning Review, Building Legos with Christ, Homeschool Education


Time 4 Learning is a online education program for Pre-K through twelfth grade.  It can be used as a homeschool curriculum, afterschool tutorial, or for use over the summer to keep you refreshed.  The program is web based and is accessible 24/7 from any computer that has an internet connection.

At the preschool and kindergarten level they offer Math, Language, Reading, and Phonics.  Grades first through eighth grade are offer Math, Language, Science, and Social Studies.  At the high school level they offer English, Math (including Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus), Science (including Biology, Chemistry, Physics and more), and Social Studies.

Time 4 Learning is organized by chapters.  When you log in you choose your subject, chapter, and lesson.  The program keeps track of where you left off and what you have completed.  You are guided through each lesson with both visual and auditory prompts. 

The program offers tools and support for parents such as a parent forum, activity finder, lesson plans, parent reviews and more.

We would not continue our subscription to Time 4 Learning as their Science curriculum contains evolution and does not represent our beliefs of a young earth.  I contacted Time 4 Learning with my concerns.  This was Time 4 Learning's response and recommendation. 

Our curriculum is more secular in nature, as it correlates to state standards and, in most cases, the exercises are aligned with what students in public schools are learning. We apologize if any part of our program offended you.

We would recommend visiting our
Parents Forum to see how other families are using the program as part of a religious approach. You may want to post your concern since other parents may find your information helpful when deciding how to address the lessons in their own homes.

We appreciate honest reviews and do not expect members to have always believe the program is a good fit for their family, as every family is unique. However, we have many Christian families and support groups that use the program. They actually created discussions such as the "Christian Perspective" and the "Christian Discussion" on our parent forum so that members can share concerns. Time4Learning allows members to skip over lessons and pick and choose what they want from the program. Members on these forums have included activity names or activity numbers as a suggestion to skip over, due to beliefs or conflicts of interest. The program only grades the students on what they complete, it does not mark against them for skipping over material.

It appears that other families have had concerns with the program from a Christian perspective.  I did appreciate Time 4 Learning response and recommendations but, I choose to support programs with Christian values.  A special thank you to Time 4 Learning for extending this product to me for a free trial in exchange for my honest opinion.

God Bless,

Udderly Smooth Product Review

Udderly Smooth Product Review, Mosaic Reviews,


Today I would like to tell you about a lotion called Udderly Smooth.  Since my blog is for LEGO® fans like myself, I just couldn't resist adding a LEGO® creation to go along with my review.

Udderly Smooth lotion is manufactured by Redex Industries.  Redex Industries is family owned and operated and has been manufacturing the Udderly Smooth products for over 30 years.  The cute thing is their product was originally created for use on dairy cows.  Now it is used by people worldwide to treat dry and chapped skin.

Udderly Smooth Product Review, Mosaic Reviews,
  

In exchange for my honest review Redex sent me the hand lotion, foot lotion, and body cream.  I have very sensitive skin and a history of eczema.  I found these products to be very moisturizing without being greasy.   The hand lotion is awesome.  Even after you wash your hands you can still feel your lotion working.  My favorite was the foot cream it has shea butter added to it and kept my feet nice and soft.  My little brother also has eczema sometimes.  He had a outbreak due to a new vitamin.  My mom used a little of the body cream on the area and he immediately felt better and the eczema was completely gone in two days.  I like that the lotion is not heavy or greasy and provides just the perfect amount of moisturizer.  Sometimes playing and building LEGO® creations with your hands can dry out your hands.  I found the hand lotion to be a perfect balance for treating my dry skin and it has a light clean smell which I like.

The jars are really fun too with black and white cow spots. 

Here are a list of the products they manufacture.

 Udderly Smooth products can be found at these locations

You can find them here.

You can order these products by phone, fax, or postal mail, using their order form.  Products are available in Canada.
To place your order simply print the order form, fill it out and place your order as desired.

Hello Fresh Product Review

Help you child love veggies, Hello Fresh Product Review,

I have a wonderful company to tell you about today, Hello Fresh!  I was provided an opportunity to review this product through Mosaic Reviews in exchange for my honest opinion. 

Hello Fresh is a company that provides a free delivery service of delicious recipes and the ingredients needed to make these recipes directly to your door each week. 

Here is how it works:      
  • Hello Fresh's chefs create delicious recipes that are easy to prepare. They ensure a balanced and varied diet.  We found that the recipes were all very unique and easy to make.  We loved the beautiful recipe cards that are professionally printed.

HelloFresh creates the recipes

  • The next part is awesome.  Hello Fresh does the shopping for you.  I do dislike the weekly trips to the grocery store with my mom so, this is a awesome in my book.  Hello Fresh sources only the highest-quality and freshest produce.  We found beautiful fresh produce, meat, and some organic items in our box. 
We feature recipes for you to choose from
  • Hello Fresh then delivers this to you free of charge on Wednesday every week.  Our box actually arrived on Thursday morning, but with the Christmas holiday a delay in shipping sometimes cannot be avoided.  The box was well insulated and the ice packs still frozen and everything was fresh and cold.
We go shopping for you in the exact quantities
  • The next part is where the fun starts.  You unpack the ingredients and plan out when you will cook.  Recipes typically take only 30 minutes or less and don't require fancy equipment. Anyone can cook with Hello Fresh.   Hello Fresh's mission is to get more people to cook by using their beautiful step-by-step photo instructions.  We did not need any fancy equipment to create our meals.  The instructions were easy to follow.  Prep time took about 30 minutes or less and cooking time was around 30 minutes or less. 
Here is what we made:
Help you child love veggies, Hello Fresh Product Review,

This Sautéed Chicken with Ginger Parsnips and Carrots was delicious.  I had never had parsnips before and I usually do not care for cooked carrots.  My mom was very happy to hear that I loved it and was surprised when I asked for seconds.  I have to admit, I am not a big vegetable fan but, this was delicious.

Help you child love veggies, Hello Fresh Product Review,

This Hearty Beef Stew with Chickpeas and Green Beans was so good.  I don't think I want to ever go back to canned soup again.  Did you know green beans and chickpeas taste good?  I didn't until I tried this recipe from Hello Fresh.  I was so surprised that my green beans tasted good!  I didn't even know that I liked chickpeas.  I am pleading with my mom to make some more of this one.

Help you child love veggies, Hello Fresh Product Review,

In my book you can never go wrong with pasta.  This Penne all' Arrabbiata was delicious.  We omitted the pancetta, because we do not eat pork.  Even without it, it was delicious.  The pasta was whole grain pasta and the tomatoes were organic.  Another winner from Hello Fresh!

I also would like to add that Hello Fresh's website is very user friendly and we had no problem placing our order.  We received email confirmation after our order was placed and was provided with tracking information for our package.  We also received a friendly call welcoming us to Hello Fresh and providing us with a 800 number should we have any questions.

You might be wondering why would I need this service?  I know first hand that my mom spends time each week planning recipes to make, creating a grocery list, and grocery shopping.  Hello fresh does this all for you and then you have more time to focus on other things. 

Now, your probably wondering if it is affordable?  The cost at the time of this post for the classic box is $69.00 for three meals for two people or $129.00 for three meals to feed four people.  I feel like that is a reasonable cost for what is provided to you.  We found that having to buy the items at the grocery store cost more money because, instead of buying a carrot for example we had to buy a whole bag.    Hello Fresh provides you with just what you need and you don't have to pay for excess that you do not need.  We received the box that feeds two and we had more than enough food to feed the four of us. 

Another great thing about Hello Fresh is that they provide substitutes.  If you do not care for fish, chicken, or the meat offered you have options.

Are you a vegetarian?  No problem!  Hello Fresh provides vegetarian boxes at the time of this posting for $59.00 to feed two and $109.00 to feed four.

Interested in giving Hello Fresh a try?  Use coupon code XWANUG to get $20.00 off your first order.  I am sure you will be pleased and maybe you will discover something new to love.  You can log on online or call 1-203-315-8637.

See The Light Product Review

REPEATED SWEETS IN THE STYLE OF WAYNE THIEBAUD
I am happy to share with you a wonderful art program by See The Light
See the Light is a awesome art program that you can do at home.  I was given the opportunity to try Repeated Sweets in the Art Projects line.  Not only did I learn a lot about Wayne Thiebaud, I have a great time learning about drawing and painting with watercolors.  I have always enjoyed painting with watercolors.  Thanks to Pat Knepley, the Master Artist in See the Light, I learned how to effectively paint with watercolor paint.  Previously, the paint in my watercolor paintings would always bleed together and I really didn't achieve my desired result. 
After watching the Repeated Sweets DVD just once and following along, I learned several new techniques. 
Step one was to choose the sweets I wanted to draw and cut them out.  The DVD provided great instructions and tips to help me with this.  
See The Light Product Review

In Step two, I decided on the sweet I would like to use, my layout, and learned about flat washing with watercolor. 

See The Light Product Review


Next, I learned how to make my watercolor start out darker and lighten it little by little and how to add details to my painting.

See The Light Product Review

Lastly, I learned how to add final details with shading and shadowing.

See The Light Product Review

 I loved learning all these new techniques and about Wayne Thiebaud.   My favorite part about the whole program was that Pat Knepley, the master artist, shared God's word during quiet times throughout the lessons.  I love finding Christian authors in my homeschool journeys.  What a blessing See The Light is!

See The Light offers a variety of different art lessons.  We did not have to purchase any expensive art supplies to complete this program.   We used supplies we already had on hand.  The Repeated Sweets DVD art program is just $14.99 and is available for purchase on the See The Light Webpage.  The age range starts at 10 and up.  However, my little four year old brother followed along right with me and did a wonderful job.  They also offer some free lessons on their website if you would like to try it out for yourself.  I am sure you will not be disappointed. 

Interested?  Here is where you can find See The Light.

A Light for My Path Product Review

A Light for My Path, Apologia, Product Review

I was recently given the opportunity to review, A Light for My Path by Davis Carman.  This is an ABC book based on Psalm 119.  When given the opportunity, I thought that this would be a nice book for my little brother.  Upon receiving it, I found that I really enjoyed it myself. 

A Light for My Path, Apologia, Product Review


A Light for My Path is published by Apologia.  Apologia is a widely respected name in the Christian home school community.  I currently use their science home school curriculum.   I love being able to trust that I will not find evolution lurking around the corner.  Apologia is a Christian family-owned business with a mission to help families learn, live, and defend the historic Christian faith.   That's important to me!

Apologia has some wonderful books, A Light for My Path is no exception.  The pages are illustrated beautifully by Alice Ratterree, with a animal or plant for each letter of the alphabet.  The otter is my favorite illustration.  The book is based on Psalms 119, an acrostic poem.  Did you know that Psalm 119 is noted for being the longest chapter in the Bible?  Each page shows a capital and lowercase letter along with the plant or animal for that letter.  I liked how the previous animal or plant is displayed on the next page that follows each letter.  In the back of the book the full Psalm 119 is printed, along with the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet.  I found that totally cool.

A Light for My Path, Apologia, Product Review

A Light for My Path describes God's Word, laws, statutes, decrees, commands, and precepts on each page with repetition that helps enforce the subject.  This book has four main purposes.  First, it is a great book for a parent to read to a child during quiet time.   Secondly, it reinforces the alphabet for little guys, like by brother, by showing the capital and lowercase letter on each page.  Most importantly, it plants a seed of  love for God's word.  Lastly, it can be used to teach the Hebrew alphabet.

A Light for My Path is available for $14.00 on Apologia's website.  I am sure your going to love it!

Apologia offers a .pdf sampler of this book if you would like to check it out.

EEME Product Review

educational, electronics, kids, kits, learn, make, projects, robotics, STEM, teach,


I recently had the opportunity to review and build the Genius Light an EEME Product.  I can sum up my review in one little word FUN!

I loved EEME's logo it looked like LEGO® bricks to me. Guess what?  I built it out of LEGO® bricks.


EEME Product Review, Electronic Kits for Kids, 1st Month Free Offer end 9/16
My EEME LEGO Creation
What is EEME?   EEME offers monthly subscriptions for hands-on project kits that teach kids like you and me about electronics. The kits are geared towards kids 7- 12 years old.   Each project kit provides online instructions that guide you through assembling the project and teach you the concepts applied.

EEME Product Review, Electronic Kits for Kids, 1st Month Free Offer end 9/16
EEME Product Review
The kit I reviewed is the Genius Light kit.   With the Genius Light project, I assembled a simple LED circuit system that does something awesome - lights up when it is dark and dims when it is light!  The project kit was shipped with all the materials needed to build the Genius Light (a breadboard, resistors, circuits, LEDs, battery).  Once I received my kit, I went to eeme.co to access an online video that taught me how to build the Genius Light, and explained the electrical engineering concepts behind it.  The video is awesome.  I really like videos that take you step by step in how to build things.   Something really cool about EEME is that all videos are free on the site.  I did have a question about the LED light when I was assembling my kit.  I emailed Jack and received a quick response that answered all my questions and kept me on track with my kit.  He welcomes your questions so feel free to contact him at jack.pien@eeme.co.  I love when a company has awesome customer service. That's a plus in my book!

So, what happens after you complete your first kit?  Well, first you show it off to your friends.  Then you can purchase a monthly subscription to EMEE's other electronic project kits.  With your subscription, you will receive a new kit each month with all the electronic components you need to build a new project.  The future projects will build on the previous month's knowledge.  They have some fun interactive quizzes in the video that help you remember what you just learned.  I love the challenge of seeing if I can answer them right.  EEME has a goal to provide a curricula that will teach kids like you and me the fundamentals of electronics, while fostering our curiosity and critical thinking skills. 

Okay, so how much will this learning fun cost Mom and Dad?  EEME offers plans starting around $18.95 per month.  I think it is a fair price for the kit and the knowledge that you receive from it.   However, EEME has graciously extended an awesome offer.  For a limited time you will receive the exact same kit I received free.  To access your offer click here.   This offer expires on 9/16/2013.

You can find EEME on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Pinterest.

I love being able to offer you insight to products that spark the desire to build.  I love LEGO bricks, however I also enjoy learning about technology beyond the bricks.  I look forward to learning more about electronics through EEME.

God Bless,
CJ

Learn the Books of the Bible - Old & New Testament 

Well, today's post is not LEGO related at all. However, I have been trying to learn all the books of the Bible.  After two weeks of listening to this video on You Tube, I am happy to say that I know all 39 books of the Old Testament.  I wanted to share this video with you because, I think it is awesome!

I started today on the New Testament version.  I hope you will join me on my journey of learning all the books of the Bible.  I would love to hear how you liked the video and if it worked for you.  I am a auditory learner so, anything put to music is an awesome way for me to learn and it's fun!

Special thanks to my homeschool evaluator Crystal for sharing this awesome learning tool.

Enjoy and God Bless,
CJ

Homeschool Programming Review:  KidCoder Windows Programming and Gaming 


Homeschool Programing, KidCoder Windows and Gaming Programing Review,Mosaic Reviews


Are you always looking for ways to build things?   I am, and computer programming is no exception.
Today, I would like to tell you about two courses that I reviewed from Homeschool Programming, Inc.  I received an electronic version of the KidCoder Windows Programming and the KidCoder Gaming Programming in exchange for my honest opinion of their product.  



Homeschool Programing, KidCoder Windows and Gaming Programing Review,Mosaic Reviews
Student Textbook for KidCoder Gaming Programming
Homeschool Programing, KidCoder Windows and Gaming Programing Review,Mosaic Reviews
Student Textbook for KidCoder Windows Programming

Here are some facts and my thoughts:
Homeschool Programming was developed by two homeschool parents that hold a B.S. and a M.S. degree in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering.  I think that is really cool. 

The KidCoder courses are designed to teach kids how to program in Microsoft Visual Basic 2010 Express.  This is a free download so, no worries about buying additional software. 

I have been interested in learning computer programming and developing my own video games for some time.  My mom was looking for a way to help me learn computer programming.  We checked out numerous books from the library.  I will admit that looking through those books was a little intimidating.  So, when I received the opportunity to review these courses I was really excited. 

These two programs provided me with detailed information and a history of computer programming broken down in easy manageable lessons.  Each lesson includes a reading section and then a chance to put into action what you have learned.  It walks you through completing it once.  Then it gives you the challenge of modifying or changing it to further practice what you have learned.  I enjoyed this opportunity to learn about computer programming and can say that the course helped me understand and complete some programming projects.

I would recommend this to kids 4th grade and above that have an interest in computer programming.  Your parents do not have to have knowledge of computer programming and can learn right along with you.   My mom walked through each lesson with me.  That was helpful, however is not required.  Our electronic version was more challenging that having an actual printed textbook.  When you purchase the courses a printed textbook comes with your course so, this will not be an issue for you.    Basic computer skills are a must to complete this course.  I will say that computer programming can be difficult to grasp and you need a desire to want to learn it.  I do feel that Homeschool Programming did a nice job in making this easy for a beginner like me. 

Homeschool Programming offers additional courses too.  Here is an overview of the courses they offer.

Homeschool Programing, KidCoder Windows and Gaming Programing Review,Mosaic Reviews

Although courses are designed with homeschoolers in mind, these courses can be used for anyone desiring to learn more about computer programming.  The cost for Kid Coder Windows Programing and KidCoder Gaming starts around $120+ for the two semesters.   

I hope this has been helpful to you.  If you are looking for Computer Programming courses give Homeschool Programming a try.

Iris Lego Project Case Chest Product Review


LEGO Organization
Today, I would like to share a product that I use to organize my LEGO® bricks.

The Iris LEGO Project Case Chest. 


LEGO Organization
Iris LEGO Project Case Chest

Plastic Project Case

The organizer comes with plastic project cases with these cool LEGO® minifigure heads on them.  You can stack these organizers on top of each other.  I have two different types of this organizer and they stack neatly on top of each other.

The things I like most about the organizer is that it can be expanded.  I love the minifigure faces on the plastic storage cases.  The cases are sturdy and great for transporting your LEGO® bricks.  One of the organizers I have, has a double tray which is awesome to separate little pieces.  I also like that it includes a plate at the top of the organizer for displaying a creation.

The things I like least about the organizer is that you have to remove the case from the organizer and open the lid to get your pieces out.  I would prefer being able to reach in versus having to remove the storage case.  I also wish the organizer provided various size cases.  I could use a couple larger cases for those bricks that I have a lot of.

Overall, I think that it is an awesome product.  It is very well made, compact, and looks great in my room.  I would recommend this product.  This is my honest opinion I have not been compensated in anyway for my opinion.

Be sure to check back tomorrow as I share how I organize my LEGO® bricks.

Happy Organizing!

God Bless,
CJ











LEGO® Brick Separator

LEGO Brick Separator a wonderful tool for removing bricks
LEGO Brick Separator




This weeks LEGO product of the week is the LEGO Brick Separator.

This is not a new product, but I was surprised to find that some are still unaware that this product exists.  Some of the larger sets include this tool. They can also be purchased separately from Amazon.com, any LEGO store, or online at LEGO's website.

This is a awesome tool for any LEGO builder. It saves your finger nails and teeth from damage that could be caused by trying to take apart your LEGOS. LEGO has done such a wonderful job designing these bricks to stay together in order to create wonderful, moveable creations. Taking them apart to build something else can be a bit of a challenge. This is where the brick separator comes in. The newer ones have a spot to remove pegs and axle pieces as well.

I recommend that you have a minimum of two of these separators. They are reasonably priced and well worth the money.

Just a note that this opinion is strictly my own honest opinion. I have not been compensated in any way for this review. I offer these reviews for my readers as a way of introducing products to them that I think may be of interest. If you should decide to purchase through my Amazon link, I will be compensated in a small way for referring you.

Happy Building and God Bless!

LEGO® Ice Brick Tray Product Review

The Ultimate LEGO party favor, LEGO Chocolate treats, LEGO Product Review
LEGO Ice Brick Tray
This weeks "LEGO Product of the Week" is the LEGO Ice Cube Brick and Minifigure tray.

We own both of these ice trays.  We have made ice cubes using the minifigure tray.  They are really cute, however they are a little small.  I think if you want ice cubes, your best bet is the brick tray.

Our trays get lots of use, and it usually is not for ice.  I love chocolate, these make wonderful LEGO chocolate pieces.  My mom buys candy melts and then we melt them in the microwave.  After they have melted, we pour them into the minifigure and brick trays.  Then we pop them into the freezer to harden for a few minutes.  The end result is wonderful chocolate LEGO pieces. 

These were a big hit at my LEGO birthday party a few years ago.  We also make them for Valentine's Day to share with friends.  Last week we made them for my geography fair.  All the kids really love LEGO chocolate, including me. 

These mold are useful for creating other party favors too.  They can be used for LEGO crayons, soap, or gummy candy.

I hope you enjoy these as must as I do!  I have received no compensation for my review of this product.  This is just a honest review from a kid crazy about LEGOS.

God Bless,
CJ
