If you have been considering using TinkerActive workbooks and would like a moms view of their books, look no further. I was approached to review their workbooks and was very interested to see how their workbooks captivated my little ones. Finding workbooks that are engaging enough to keep my little ones attention is a somewhat difficult task at times.
If you find that your little learner has trouble keeping still while learning, it may because of the amount of time spent in a workbook and not enough play. Sometimes book work is not the best way for everyone to learn. My little guy is proof of that, he loves to be active and learn while he is playing. I want to always encourage him and show him that learning is fun. Learning doesn’t always have to come from a book. Workbooks have their place and I love using workbooks and hands-on learning together, but everyone is different.

Interactive Learning With TinkerActive Workbooks
I found that the TinkerActive books were very colorful and the content very engaging with hands-on activities that required everyday household items. My preschool and kindergartener were so excited when they looked in the box to find the books waiting for them to explore. They liked the fact that it had badges to earn along the way of them learning through their workbook. Having a reward system is very encouraging for my little people, so they are always excited to reach the next badge and achievement sticker.
How it is set up.
They have the books broken down into a total of 45 projects or lessons. So if you decided to do about 3 lessons/projects a week then you could use your book for about 3 months. The book has easy to tear pages for setting out your pages for your child to use out of the book. I believe that the age ranges for each workbook is accurate. They start from the ground up and progressively add onto each lesson.
What Are The Subjects That TinkerActive Workbooks Provide?
They are all separate subject workbooks. They have Math, Science, and English workbooks.
Are the projects hard, use a lot of materials, or time-consuming?
At first, I thought,” Oh no, it looks like I’ll need a lot to prepare and buy things for the projects” After a second glance though, I realized that they were simple home items that were around the house. Think macaroni noodles, paper, string, scissors, paper plates, etc… The projects aren’t time-consuming were my children got bored or lost interest. They found them fun engaging and helped build upon the skills they learned in the workbook’s exercises.
Did my kids like learning from these workbooks?
Yes! They loved to do the worksheets along with each project. They wanted to do more! My kids enjoyed learning through play and I believe that they caught on and remembered what they learned a lot faster than only doing worksheets.
Are these workbooks a full curriculum or are they to be used on the side?
Each workbook covers the basic concepts in each subject. I would not personally use this as a full curriculum because of the number of lessons in the book. I will be using it as a fun interactive learning activity at the end of the day to do with my kids or if I see my child needing a little extra help in a specific subject area. I also believe that it would be a great summer break workbook to keep your children learning during their break. Especially with doing three lessons a week, it would be the perfect amount of time to finish their books over the summer. Overall, they are great supplemental learning workbooks.
Where I can I buy it?
I have seen TinkerActive workbooks in Walmart and on Amazon. You can purchases them about anywhere that books are sold. If you buy it through Amazon, don’t forget to review it through their website.
Hopefully, this review was helpful in your decision on whether you would like to use this book for your little learner. Let me know if you have any other questions and I will try and get back with you soon as I can.
