The Know Yourself Journey: Learning From The Inside Out
A special thanks to Know Yourself for providing the Miss Frugal Mommy blog with their products for free in exchange for an honest review!
Know Yourself is dedicated to making self literacy an important part of early education and the 12-part adventure series is aimed at helping children discover how their minds and bodies work. This intriguing series was created to help eliminate the mystery children face when it comes to their bodies. The Know Yourself Adventure Series provides entertaining and educational tools that will help your children become masters of how their minds and bodies work. The body can be a confusing subject to discuss with kids, especially when they get sick, tired, itchy, or exhausted and want to know what is going on. My five year old son is exactly that, a child that absolutely has to know why he has a cold, why does he feel sick, why does his body do these things? Educating your children at a young age about their body will help them to make good decisions as an adult when it comes to their healthy.
So how does a parent go about teaching their children about their body and not completely boring them? You sign up for a program such as Know Yourself, where children can get excited and anxious for their learning materials to arrive in the mail. The Know Yourself Adventure Series brings to life a fun educational experience that helps children learn about their body from the inside out. These boxes are delivered monthly and each adventure in the series includes an original comic book, science experiments, historical lessons and healthy recipes. Each box is geared towards bringing hours of fun and productive entertainment to families.
The 12-month adventure series uses compelling visuals and engaging stories and introduces a different system of the human body each month. The first box your child receives will introduce them to the five sense. Other boxes will teach children about the skeletal, muscular, nervous, respiratory, digestive and immune systems, and more.
Each box in the series takes your children on a time-traveling journey that teaches important lessons about how the body works. Powerful storytelling provides an educational experience and is guaranteed to have your children fully engaged! The main character in the story is a young protagonist named Pinky. Her science-loving skeletal mentor Dr. Bonyfide and the Loops Crew (an eclectic group of skateboarding friends) must overcome challenges and develop social-emotional literacy along the way.
The kids could not contain themselves when the box arrived, they were anxious to get there hands on everything, which is totally acceptable for this box! Along with supplies we needed to learn about the five senses were many extra fun reading materials. My son was really excited about the comic book and my oldest daughter found herself thrilled about the secret notepad and special pen. The pen contains a flashlight on the tip that reveal all of the secret messages she would write inside.
Everything you need to get started and fully engage in all of the activities is provided for you. The only additional supplies we needed were items to place in the containers in order to learn about smell. This was a simple task and the kids made an adventure just out of finding items around the house that had strong smells.
There is also a really great map included that will help your children to pinpoint on the map where each adventure will take place in the world.
I am especially fond of hands on learning and as you can see from the pictures, my children are equally pleased with this style of learning. Even my one year old was able to join in when it came to learning about touch, each child had fun molding their own creation.
The Know Yourself series meets a need for an in-home way for your children to start becoming experts of their own bodies and begin a lifelong journey of health and well being. The Know Yourself materials are exciting, engaging and from observing my photos… clearly there is wide age range that this series is appropriate for.
Know Yourself also has a full line of clothing, books and comics that feature compelling characters, all three of the kids are actually sporting their amazing apparel. Such great quality and unique products that encourage children to learn! Overall we are very pleased with the first box in this series ! I am personally happy with how engaged my children were and the amount of knowledge they gained from just one chapter of the series!
