What do you get when you combine literacy + crafts and it’s all set up for you? You get the Peekapak! I’m excited to share with you our experience with a Peekapak today. If you’ve been reading my blog for some time, you’ll know that I love hands-on learning activities. I believe kids learn best when activities are hands-on and engaging. Well, that’s what you get with the Peekapak. This box includes a creative story and crafts to go along with the book. And the wonderful part is that it’s all ready to go! There’s no prep (hooray!) and the crafts are cute! Here’s what our Peekapak looked like when we opened it.
Our Peekapak had a book called The Hero of Color City. My 4-year-old loved reading the story. It had a few challenging words for him to understand, but it was good for building his vocabulary. In the story, there are two parts where you stop and complete a craft. The first craft we made were the blue and yellow crayon characters from the story. This was so easy to complete because it tells you exactly where to cut and where to put glue dots on. Love the simplicity!
The next craft we made was a lighthouse from the story. That was both of my sons’ favorite craft!
Here is the final product. (And you can see the crayon characters in the background!)
The crafts were fun and I enjoyed watching my children use imaginary play with the crafts.
Also included in the box is a chart to show how you can differentiate the Peekapak according to your child’s age.
Overall, I think this is a great product. Everything is all set up for you, which makes it a great product for busy parents. I love that it’s literacy focused and has unique crafts that use fine motor skills. There is lots of learning going on in the Peekapak!
