Jeremy Plays Guitar

Posted by Valerie's Reviews at 12:58 AM 0 comments



*There were 106 entries. The winner is Shannon.
Thank you for entering*  

I was sent the Jeremy Plays Guitar "Use Your Words" CD to listen to and write a review. I think the music is very upbeat and catchy. You can't help but to sing along. I love that the music sends a message to the children listening. My favorite song is "House Rules", it reinforces the rules that I have been teaching my girls. My second favorite as a parent and as a teacher is "Use Your Words".

When I received this in the mail I was working in a kindergarten classroom at my work. I put this in the CD player for them and at first the kids kind of ignored it. But as the music was going I started to notice them singing along. They were also talking about the messages that they were hearing. What an entertaining teaching tool! My girls also love the music and ask to listen to it.

There are 14 songs in all and below is a preview of each song.






I highly recommend this CD and you can purchase the products on their website, http://jeremyplaysguitar.com.

Natural Family Supplies

I was so excited to learn about Natural Family Supplies. They have a wide variety of items from cloth diapers to dryer balls to art supplies to toys and more. The prices are very reasonable and the service is awesome!

I was sent able to choose what I wanted to review and I chose the natural art supplies. As a preschool teacher I love art and have passed that love down to my children. I received the Clementine natural paint and the Clementine natural modeling dough. I was so excited to try these products with my girls.


The Clementine natural paint came with 6, 1.7oz paints. These are good size paints and a little goes a long way. These paints are colored with Mayan mineral earth pigments, our paints are free from chemical dyes and petrochemicals. The colors are vibrant and are actually better than other brands of paints we have used, in my opinion.


The Clementine natural modeling dough come in containers with a cap that screws on, this has helped the dough to stay fresh and easy to use. They are a soft, crumble-free, all natural doughs colored with tumeric, carmine and spinach. The containers are even recyclable. When I first opened the doughs they had a strong scent to them but that has become not so strong over time and actually smells better than other doughs. I actually have been taking this to work for the kindergarten class I have been working in. The kids love the dough and absolutely love the smells. They smell like strawberry, lemon and lime and each parent that walked through the door to pick up their child was told to smell the playdough because it smells so good. The dough has been used over 50 times by different children and is still in the same condition it arrived in.

Some other art supplies that I would like to try are the natural crayons, markers and glue. 


Giveaway (CLOSED)
One of my readers will win the natural paint and modeling dough set that I received or a $20 gift certificate to purchase whatever they would like from Natural Family Supplies.
