We’ve been buying a lot of educational toys from the www.etsy.com Website. We love toys produced by mamaroots and mamakopp. However, we’ve also discovered the joy of creating our own toys. This is beneficial because it let’s us tailor our toys in such a way to reinforce very specific lessons that we want to persist from our Focus Month, once that month is over.

Mushroom Month will be long gone in a few, short days, and we want all the hard work that we put into teaching facts about mushrooms to last for a long time. To that end, we designed a board game around Elizabeth Cameron’s Wonderful Flight to the Mushroom Planet book to provide a fun framework around which to build an educational game to preserve our scientific facts about mushrooms. My son looks forward to playing the game everyday, and it’s working wonderfully.
