Teach Your Kids Coding with Ozobot Evo

For those that may not know, I have a 13 yr old daughter that absolutely loves STEM and everything to do with Coding. In fact, when her school announces the Fall camps for it she gets excited and is one of the first ones to sign up.  So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that when I was asked if I’d like to test out the STEM Learning & Educational Toy Product called Ozobot Evo carried by Best Buy  I said yes.

Ozobot STEM Learning & Educational Toys Product Seeding

STEM for those that may not realize stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math and STEM products encourage kids to develop core skills in these areas. Best Buy carries products from basic learning games to advanced toys designed to stimulate a child’s mind in the STEM areas, helping to develop logic and problem-solving skills.

Before we get into what’s in the Ozobot Bit Starter Pack box let me just tell you as soon as it came Bella couldn’t wait to try it out. Yes, it says 6+ but it just means + ha ha. Once you get the box open (I struggled a bit) inside looks like a little locker. Your manuals and board are in the door that drops down.  Your markers, Evo (evo skin), and the usb cord are all in the doors that look like a locker. This is so cute, maybe I’m just missing school.

 

 It doesn’t take long to set up, you do have to go to your app store to download the Ozobot Evo app and once you do that you can start playing. Immediately Bella wanted to go to the website to see what she could code. When your phone is logged into the game it’ll even let you know when Evo (Eva for us) is done recharging.

Have the kids draw their colored circles and colored lines with the markers on paper so Evo can explore. Each color will make him do something different. Make sure they read to find out what he will do. Evo has optical sensors at the bottom of him which helps him know what to do. The neat thing is watching him scan the area to find the next color before they slingshot him.  There are actually 20 activities are included with this Ozobot 2.0 Bit starter pack, more are downloadable from the Ozobot app for even more fun.

There are actually 20 activities are included with this Ozobot 2.0 Bit starter pack, more are downloadable from the Ozobot app for even more fun. We hope you enjoy the video and have a ton of fun coding with your little Evo.  The Starter pack is $59.99 and for ages 6+. Oh, one more favorite part of mine is that they can play against others if they meet other kids with them.

Garden Lites Muffins: Delicious Muffins without Mom Guilt

February 10, 2017 By · No Comments

Garden Lites Muffins Freezer

I’ve been leaning towards eating healthier for a while now, not everyone is completely on board and when that happens you know how hard that can be. It doesn’t matter if it is spouse, friends/co-workers or your kids. When there is resistance it is hard to fight and stay on track. My goal right now is to start with the young ones. Why? My girls already love to eat healthy, they just tend to eat sweets when allowed. I found a new snack idea that the kids love and I feel great about. Rich in veggies too……They are….. Garden Lites Muffins!

Garden Lites Packaging

I end up snacking during the day and so does Nicoli.  Instead of giving him some junk I can now give him a chocolate muffin without guilt. Why? Simply because Garden Lites have mixed up veggies into their muffins. We got two different ones to try out: Chocolate Muffins (made with fresh zucchimi & carrots) and Banana Chocolate Chip muffins (made with fresh zucchini and bananas). Nicoli will never know the difference. Truth is as long as I start him early he will always love zucchini muffins/cupcakes. Isabella once tried them at a Farmer’s Market and has loved them since.

Kari Jobe’s Newest CD “The Garden” Will Speak To You

February 8, 2017 By · 12 Comments

Disclosure: I was sent this wonderful CD for review purposes and one is being provided for one lucky reader. 

“The Garden” CD

I couldn’t wait to hear Kari Jobe’s Newest CD “The Garden” I had previously heard some of her songs (I am Not Alone) and loved them so I knew this wouldn’t be any different. Her voice is soft but it reaches into your soul and speaks to you on so many different levels. I’ve been a bit lost lately so having this on while reading the bible has really seemed to put my spirit at ease. Don’t ask me what it is but it just helps me clear my mind.

About Kari Jobe:

“Grammy nominated Kari Jobe is the premiere female worship leader in Christian music. Coming off her last live album, Majestic, which featured the worship anthem “Forever” and radio hit “I Am Not Alone,” Kari Jobe has returned to the studio to record her new album, The Garden, full of brand new worship anthems for the church and for personal reflection. Finding inspiration from life’s joys and hardships, Kari leans into the firm foundation of Christ through it all.”
