Product Review: Beyond Potential – The Goofy Gosling Pack

Beyond Potential

I purchased the “Goofy Gosling Pack” pack from Beyond Potential in December last year to use with Koko and Fifi’s, and eventually Pixie’s, lessons. This is a great pack to use for their “group” work.

The kidlets LOVE the story book, I’ve read it over and over to them and still they ask for it every morning when I pull out the activity book. This particular set is for ages 2 – 5 years.

This is what’s included in this set:
Story Book: The Goofy Gosling
Animals’ Activity Book: The Goofy Gosling
Little Book of Inspiration: The Goofy Gosling
Animal Snap Playing Cards (with ideas on how to use them)

There are a total of 22 activities in this book, enough to keep you and your child occupied for an entire month! Here are two of the activities that are in the book.

Clay Animals

We spent an entire afternoon outside making the animals. The kidlets loved it 🙂 They asked me to make them each an elephant. Momma made some examples for them to try and copy.

Koko’s creations:

Elephants (made by me, she made the face) and a cat

Finger Puppets

The kidlets loved this activity. Fifi was sick this day, but insisted that she also wanted to make her own puppets. Koko made his all by himself (I cut out the animals for him) and I did all the cutting and stapling for Fifi. She decided that her animals had to be stuck (stapled) onto recycled toilet paper rolls.

Koko with his finger puppets. He was struggling to hold them all, hence his silly face.

Fifi and her puppets. Poor little girl was so sick and still managed to smile for the camera.

Animal snap cards
Koko and Fifi loves the Animal Snap Cards. They have matched them in our
pocket chart numerous times throughout the last few weeks.
