Olivia is over the moon recently when we were asked to review something that is right up her street. She is that kind of a child that could sit for hours drawing pictures. Trust me, we go through some serious usage of papers.
This time, we were sent a Glow Art Board from CDK to try. It’s a light (see through) drawing board with multi-coloured LED’s and fluorescent markers to bring your drawings to life. You only need 3XAA batteries to make this magic happen. What more could you ask?
There’s fun in Maths too
It’s been two weeks now that we have been using our Glow Art board for our home lessons. I have been using it for Maths activities for Olivia. I don’t know about you, but for me, Maths is boring. Maths and I don’t get on very well and I don’t want that for Olivia as we all know how important Maths is. I want to show her that it is fun and exciting to learn. Glow Art has been a good way to learn and it has helped putting excitement and magic to our learning. We normally do some Maths and before going to bed, we switch off the lights for amazing effects and see our numbers glow and animate.
Reading in the dark
I do this by writing the tricky words from the books we read each day. Olivia find it exciting and she sees it like a game that she needs to read what I am writing. There 36 selectable modes for the board, but for reading we always put it on a steady mode (not flashing). It works for both of us. I tend to spend more time teaching her even in the dark as I love writing with glowing effects and Olivia is fascinated by it too.
How about drawing pictures then switch of the lights and see your pictures animate? That’s one super cool feature of Glow Arts board. Don’t tell Olivia, I have been using her board while she is at school.
I like leaving some nice messages for Olivia to read when she comes home. Soon as she switch on her glow board, it will reveal my message to her.
I am more than happy to recommend this product especially for special occasions. Remember Christmas is on its way. All this educational, fun and magic will cost you £24.95 which doesn’t hurt your pocket that much knowing of what a child could benefit from it. You can get your Glow Arts board –>HERE<–.
Check out what Olivia has to say. 🙂
