Adventure Sketchers brings art to life

Trying to find interactive games that are educational and fun is often a hard task to accomplish; add in the fact that you want it for a 5 year old and you want them to love it adds another dimension of difficulty. I’m pretty impressed with myself because I have done it! I found a LeapFrog game called Adventure Sketchers for my sons LeapPad, it is innovative and brings their art to life. The kids love that it is interactive and they can record phrases that play in the game and then there is the pictures they create that appear while they are playing.

This is great for on-the-go or if you need 5 minutes quiet and the kids won’t even realise you are benefiting from it (they’ll think you are great for letting them play).  If you are looking for a game that entertains, encourages imagination, story telling and promotes learning then I recommend the LeapFrog Adventure Sketchers!

    He played a real life game of Mario with his imagination. Jumping every few steps as high as he can to hit blocks to get coins, jumping on and off furniture trying not to touch the lava floor. He played liked that for months lol It was very interesting!

    my daughter used to get up early, turn the portable heater on and the TV, then knock the heater over as she knew it would turn off automatically but she could sit on it while it was still nice and warm!

    My daughter loves to make things and creates many interesting animals out of paper and other craft items. She recently had a rubber chicken and turned it into a beautiful peacock using coloured feathers and googly eyes!

    Our two girls have a ‘Frozen’ frenzy – yippee, and decided to put on a surprise concert for us on the weekend. Emptying all the linen out of the kitchen drawers, they sticky taped all the tea towels together to use as hair. They dressed up in layer after layer of dress up clothes until they looked like Michelin men, used two old toilet rolls and began to sing. They’d asked their big brother to find the song and words on the computer, he turned the volume up full ball – much to his delight – and they progressed to serenade us with the songs. What words they didn’t know – and let’s face it, it was most of them – they made up. They had us in stitches. The only problem since – I can’t get that blasted song out of my mind now ‘Let It Go’ is about to kick the kerb.

    While cleaning one day, Miss almost 3 came to me asking for a sheet which I gave. She proceeded to open and drape it from the highest things in her room to make a cubby, which I helped her with. Some time later when I checked in, I could hear her muttering from below and on pulling it open found a fully furnished house (using dolls furniture), but decorated correctly. Combined lounge and dining room (where she was feeding the mum and dad dolls), the hallway dresser and coat stand in the entrance, and complete with ensuite bathroom. Our house is small and nothing like this. New house rules contestant maybe? Lol.

    My comment isn’t about my child but myself simple because it’s much funnier!

    When I was about 3 years old someone gave me a child’s tea set, it was plastic with pretty bunnies and flowers painted on it and I loved it!

    Dad was in the living room relaxing and watching the 6 o’clock news. I brought Dad a little cup of ‘tea’, (but it was really only water!) and after several cups of tea and lots of praise and thanks for the yummy tea, Dad called mum to come and see.

    Dad made her wait in the living room so she would be surprised as she witnessed the super cute and clever tea waitress! Mum waited, and sure enough, I came down the hall with a cup of tea for Dad; and she watched him drink it up.

    Then she said, in quite a smug voice, “‘Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach to get water is the toilet!”

    My little Miss loves to make her own meals using her little kitchen and play food. The creations and dishes she comes up with is fantastic. She then sets the table for her little brother and they ‘pretend’ eat together 🙂

    Miss Just Turned 3:
    While laying in bed, she uses her imagination to make the street lights turn into the sun being awake so she can get out of bed.
    Boy am I hoping she grows out of this one!

    My nearly 2 year old son, had Been at an ultrasound appointment with me just the other day. Not long after we had got home, I found him with the Wii nunchuk controller ‘scanning’ his belly, and then mine. It does look similar I guess.

    At playgroup the teacher was reading a book about fish, the teacher asked what do fish eat? and her answer was fish fingers. We all nearly fell over like they do on Peppa Pig laughing.

    Being impatient with her busy mum and dad, my five year old daughter has recently taken to opening her book on craft and using just paper and scissors where originally the craft might have used fabric, she’s being making her own crafts from paper. She’s made a beautiful wreath and a delicate paper basket with handle and decorated them with her drawing and stickers!

    Gave me a blank piece of paper and told me to guess what she had drawn. Only problem she didn’t draw anything – she said she imagined it in her head. Go figure.

    My son loves Star Wars and he imagined he had “Luke” his special friend with him and I had to give him a lolly if I was to give my son one too, which was a very clever way to get 2 lollies much to my younger sons annoyance.

    When my now 6 yo was 3 we took him to QLD, when we got back he told this detailed story to my Aunt of how I had kicked him on the plane and the police came and put me in jail! I was horrified at his imagination to say the least, most stories have been fairly tame since thank goodness!
