I am a reuser. I reuse everything I can and for the things I can’t, I recycle whenever possible. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been concerned with our environment and trying to save it for future generations. If I see litter, get out of my way because I have to pick it up. I will run someone over trying to get to it because it concerns me that much. Okay, not really run over them. But you get the gist of how important the environment means to me. Now, I can’t speak for everywhere, but here in the U.S.A. we are running out of landfill space at an alarming rate. Even as I’m typing, our landfills are filling up with many products that could be recycled but aren’t. Because of my crazy obsession with reusing stuff, when I buy products, I try to find products that can be reused or recycled. Which is why I’m so obsessed with my new Buddha Board. It’s a drawing board that I can use over and over.
There is something ZENtastic about zoning everything out around me and drawing. It’s calming and it reduces stress. The kids also love to draw and they haven’t stopped using our Buddha Board from the time it arrived. I’m pretty sure I’m going to have to buy a second one for when they are out of school and here. Of course, I don’t mind anything that will encourage them to be creative and it’s worth the money to me. I’ve been watching how the Buddha Board is helping them to use their imagination and I think their skills are improving. Lil Abby even drew an Easter egg the other day which I thought was really cute. I’ve never seen her try to draw anything like that before. As soon as the water dries, the board is all clear and ready to be drawn on again.
Earth Day is coming up and I’ve been trying to come up with ideas to help teach the kids the importance of Earth Day with products like the Buddha Board. If you’d like to educate your kids as well, check out the Buddha Board. It’s easy to use, all you need is a little water to dip the included brush in to draw. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
Games to play with the Buddha Board that we love are:
- Guess the animal
- Guess the object
- Guess who
- Tic Tac Toe
- Math Problems
- Guess the missing letter
What are some games you’d play with your Buddha Board?
