I received Growing in Grace Sing and Play Activity Kit for review purposes as a Family Christian Blogger. No other compensation was received. Affiliate links are included in this post.
I’ve been on the look out for things that my children can do whether at home or on the go that can nurture and grow their Faith in God. Specifically, around this time I start collection a little of this and that to bring along during our family vacation for the year. Things I tend to gather include coloring books, card games, stickers, a minimal number of art supplies, and a few music albums I believe they’ll enjoy listening to when riding in the car for several hours.
Thanks to Family Christian, I discovered the Growing in Grace Sing and Play Activity Kit. This kit features a music CD, an activity book, 2 crayons (these are double ended featuring different color on each end) , and two sheets of stickers. The contents are all contained in a case that is roughly the size of your average DVD case. What’s really neat is that it features a handle that allows children to easily carry it along with them wherever they go. The case is fairly easy to open and the inner contents all stay put in each set location without shifting about.
Activities found within the book all correspond with a select song on the music CD. There are dot to dots, mazes, pictures to color, sticker placing tasks, tracing, and matching activities. The two sheets of stickers are to be used within the activity books. I found that the stickers peel rather easily so there’s no issues with ripping or tearing before being placed.
My four year old son Owen is a huge fan of this activity kit. I presented him with the kit at home and he right away wanted me to play the music cd. He loved the songs and caught onto the lyrics right away. Even when the music isn’t playing, I’ve caught him humming and even singing words to many of the songs. The music paired with the activity book has real sticking power. I’m thrilled that with this kit my son is learning so many wonderful truths.
The music cd runtime is 26 minutes long. There are 18 songs total. Songs include:
- Everybody’s Welcome
- God Said It Was Good
- I Thank You, God
- The Old Gray Cat
- Apples, Apples
- Ziggy Polka
- No More Pie
- God Made My Feet
- Oats and Wheat and Barley
- Doodley Doo
- Hallelujah, Sing Hosanna
- William Tell Overture
- It’s Springtime
- Wiggle and Hop
- Sing Together
- The Hokey Pokey
- God’s Sun and Moon
- Our Father in Heaven
I did find a single con with this kit. One activity page instructs children to use the colors yellow, orange, green, and brown to color a picture. But, the only colors included in the kit are red, blue, green, and yellow. There are no orange or brown colored crayons. My son didn’t want to substitute with the colors included but instead color the picture as instructed and intended by using his own crayons. This minor mistake can easily be overlooked but I felt that it was important to point out.
We’ve had such a positive experience with this kit that I’m aiming to get the other put out by Growing with Grace that features hymns! I think this kit is a good choice to bring along when traveling on the road, to give to your child to use when at a sitters, or to just enjoy using at home. It’s a winner for both boys and girls and with Easter around the corner, this would be welcome received addition to any child’s basket!
