Birdcage Press Art Ditto Game Review

You are in for a treat! Not only are we offering a giveaway but you have nine more chances to win at the sites we are teaming up with…
We are all about adding in the joy of art in our homeschool. And what a fun way to view beautiful pieces of art – holding copies of them right in your hand. Playing a game? Even better! As a parent, I am very impressed with the quality of Art Ditto by Birdcage Press. The children are very impressed with the fun factor.

For ages 4 and up (all my children enjoyed it – from age 4 up to 14):

  • Brilliantly-colored cards. Glossy and thick – will stand the test of my rough and tumble household.
  • Simple memory game with benefit of learning famous pieces of art.
  • Includes 48 tiles – so younger ones can play with just a few and older children can be challenged by using the whole set.
  • Easy enough for children to play independently.

For a more advanced way of playing – pretend your are an art collector:

  • Eight (8) art collecting cards that show details on one side and full paintings on the other.
  • Cards include names of famous artists (hooray! A supplement to our homeschool studies).
  • Find the matching tiles and collect them on the cards.
  • The cards give a visual of how different artists depict birds, boats, cats, flowers, horses and more.

Need even more of a challenge? Learn words in 4 languages.

    I love using games as a way of getting the older children to teach the younger ones. Plus they have a lot of fun playing them.

    I frequently use math games for incorporating math concepts into my homeschool in a fun way, and am always on the look out for other new math games. I also use the pictures from an art game called “Masterpiece” (a very old game that is currently out of print, but you can find it at yard sales and on ebay.)

    I love games, so we incorporate them wherever we can.

    We use games as a supplement and try to do a couple each week {at the very least}. I think the kids really retain information this way.

    My kids play some educational games on the computer and ipod. We have kids who work at WAY DIFFERENT paces, so playing games together has been a challenge. Now that they are bigger, it will probably work better.

    Honestly? Some days the games are school. Other days they occupy siblings while someone else is getting some extended one-on-one time with mama.
