A few months back we went out shopping, the whole gang kids and all. This can be somewhat of a task in itself. The kids end up everywhere and anyways you get the picture. So, we were out shopping like I said - actually about to head off to the cash when it happened. The kids eyes bulged out of their heads and they yelled in delight while running toward a very large display in the electronics section.

"SKYLANDERS GIANTS!" my son yelled in delight, half the department turning to look. What in the world are Skylanders? I had to find out so over to the display we followed to see what the kids were so excited about. My daughter rambled on about how Skylanders are so awesome, my hubby is a huge gamer and was intrigued himself. Something he could maybe play with the kids, something they are both interested in - gaming! 

Skylanders & Skylanders Giants are interactive games by Activision like no other. Available on all major gaming consoles, Skylanders brings virtual and real world together in game. Starting off with a starter kit which include the game base, three characters and the game, your kid can bring their favourite Skylanders characters to life in your living room by placing the characters on the base during game play! Pretty neat! 

My kids were there rhyming off names and facts about the game I had no idea about until doing a little reading of my own with the Skylanders Giants Homework Pack! 

Mom and Dad, learn all you need to know about Skylanders Giants with the Skylanders Giants Homework pack! A fun and interactive way kids can teach us a thing or two about Skylanders Giants and their favourite characters!




The Skylanders Giants Homework pack features five fun and interactive chapters (one for each week day!)
  • Monday: History (Skylanders story SSA and Giants)
  • Tuesday: Science (elemental sources)
  • Wednesday: Characters (abilities, strengths and weaknesses)
  • Thursday: Technology (practicalities of what and how to buy and play)
  • Friday: Art (to include dot-to-dot and drawing of key characters)
- Quiz sheets at the end of each chapter test parents on what they've learned that day.

- Rewards chart to stick on the fridge and Skylanders sticker for kids to award parents when they complete the chapters successfully.

What a great way to get parents involved in something their kids enjoy and also learn a thing or two. I definitely could benefit from this special Skylanders Giants Homework Pack!
