Teachers appreciation door decoration

I just had to share with you my door decoration for Teachers Appreciation Week.  I'm the room parent so this is what I came up with.

I think it came out pretty good.  I had so much fun with this but it was a lot of hard work.  We didn't have a theme and I knew she liked gardening.  Let me know what you think.

Perplexus ball review and giveaway

I got a chance to review the Perplexus ball (The Original) which everyone was buzzing about.  I have to say I really love this toy it is a ball that is a 3-D puzzle maze and the object of the game is that you roll the ball inside to any of the starting points and then you flip it and twist it and turn it and slowly guide the ball through the maze, but beware there are about 100 different mazes and it is easily to lose the one that you are on...  I have two boys 11 and 8 and they absolutely love this toy..not only is it fun but it's also very challenging. There are obstacles of varying difficulties that you have to go through  to make it to the end.  I have even tried this and I have to say it is very addicting but to be honest I think my boys rock it compared to me.

This toy is very educational also.because it develops motor and dexterity skills.  I would highly recommend this toy.   Plus it would make a great travel toy because it's all one piece.

If you want to buy one for your child or even yourself then go here
You can also check Perplexus out on Face book
Plus if you have boys like I do who are constantly  bickering  then this is also a great distraction and they will actually have fun teaming up together to make it to the end.  This toy provides great fun, many challenges and is educational.  This toy Rocks!

Open to US and Canada excluding Alaska and Hawaii. No P.O boxes -You will have 48 hrs to contact me or I will have to choose another winner.  Bloggers who have reviewed this Perplexus ball is not allowed to enter the contest.  Sorry, but that was what the sponsor said.
