Number Games With Tenzi

Earlier in the year I started collaborating with Timberdoodle. Timberdoodle offers everything from books & home school curriculum to toys & games that are fun to play with and educational too. AKA this home school mom’s dream. We want to say a huge thanks to Timberdoodle for sponsoring today’s post and as always, all opinions are my own.

Learning fun with Tenzi a number / strategy game for kids... and adults.
Recently we were given the chance to try out Tenzi. Tenzi is a unique and fun number / strategy game that quickly became a family favorite. This fast paced game is the perfect way to work on learning numbers with the littlest learners or start drilling quick addition math skills with older learners.

We also received the 77 Ways To Play TENZI a card deck that takes this game to the next hilarious level, offering even more variety with your TENZI dice. I love that there is so much variety with this game from the way we play to the way we score. Every time we play it it’s like a whole new game. That makes Tenzi exciting for everyone.

Marissa becomes so intently focused while playing this game.
I love how it is challenging her to make quick, logical decisions.

Emily has a whole new laid back approach. She loves rolling the dice and trying to get all the dice, yes ALL 40, on the same number. This always keeps her occupied for a while so I call it a win.

With 77 Ways To Play TENZI you can learn games like PYRAMIDZI, FARMZI, PAIRSZI and GUESSZI. Because who doesn’t want to play a fast paced dice game while making farm animal noises? Moo’ing makes everything more funny. I am pretty sure that might be a fact.

And what might possible be my favorite part about this game is that the whole family loves it. FINALLY a game that Russ and I don’t internally grumble when the girls ask to play. In fact we may or may not be guilty of playing it without the kids. You know you have found a winner when that happens friends. 

But don’t just take my word for it, pick up TENZI and find out for yourself.

Just Dance The Winter Blues Away!

If there is one thing that I have noticed around here it is how quickly we develop a case of the winter blues. Winter arrives quickly and without much notice in Missouri. Before we know it, we go from hours of play outside each day to being cooped up for days on end.
So like most moms, I usually spend the winter searching and brainstorming ideas to keep the kids busy. Games, TV, books and puzzles are all options that we frequent but they don’t offer a solution to one major problem... 
Those girls have A LOT of energy to burn.
Stuck inside, full of energy, feeling blue, There has to be a solution, right?!
What if you could Just Dance those winter blues away?
Recently we were invited to try out Just Dance: Disney Party 2, Just Dance is bringing fun to every Disney Channel fan and their family this holiday season with their second title in the best-selling music video game franchise of all time. With the cold weather coming I knew it was going to be the perfect solution to our boring winter days. Dancing is the best medicine after all! I might add that if you watch me dance you are bound to laugh, it all works hand in hand perfectly. 

The day I gave the game to Marissa she couldn’t have possibly been more thrilled. 

The moment we turned on the game I saw her get a bit nervous, little Miss can be pretty shy, but after her first dance she was hooked and dancing like no one was watching. 
I love that about kids, no holding back. 
Just Dance: Disney Party 2 features more than 20 tracks from the hottest Disney Channel hits.
It didn’t take long and she had already made her own list of favorites:

Descendants, Be Our Guest
Liv And Maddie,What A Girl Is
And 
Teen Beach 2 Right Where I Wanna Be
She will dance, dance, dance as long as I let her or until she wears herself out.
Both are just fine with me.
We can’t wait to try out the game the next time we have friends over to play.
I know we have hours of dancing and playing with this game ahead.

Just Dance: Disney Party 2 is now available on Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Nintendo’s Wii and Wii U systems. It is the perfect addition to any kids Christmas wish list and a great way to keep moving through the new year.
