Things to Do - ThinkFun's Compose Yourself GIVEAWAY!! (NOW CLOSED)
As frequent blog readers probably already know, we're big fans of ThinkFun's educational games and activities. But lately we're especially big fans of their new Compose Yourself music cards. The thick plastic transparent cards each have a set of musical notes on them. You then go online and enter a series of cards to make a song or melody. Flip them. Reverse them. Repeat them. It's shockingly fun.
And this has become our go-to downtime activity this summer. Whenever the kids say, "I'm bored." I reply, "then go make a song." And they do. Over and over again. Even I can't stop fiddling with them. If you listen carefully you start to understand how music and notes work (I never learned to read music, so I'm a somewhat fascinated by this).
The super easy computer interface makes parental involvement optional, so this is the perfect summer activity for children when you need some time by yourself (perhaps a nap?). I can't say enough good things.
Think Fun has offered to giveaway one set of Compose Yourself cards to a No Monsters reader (US addresses only). To enter, just comment on this post. Please include your email address in the body of the message (so I can find you). This giveaway will close in one week at 10 pm on August 10th.
THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED, A RANDOM WINNER HAS BEEN PICKED AND NOTIFIED. THANK YOU!
