When my boys and I started using Know Yourself Adventure Series 1: The 5 Senses, I can honestly answer yes, yes, and yes! There is nothing like seeing your kids' faces light up as they explore and learn new concepts. For me, the joy was multiplied because all the prep work was done! This busy momma loves to save time!
Join me as I share our learning journey with Know Yourself Adventure Series, a fabulous monthly subscription kit that addresses a variety of educational concepts in a fun way.

What Makes Know Yourself Adventures Series 1 Unique?
What kid wouldn't love exploring history, science, and psychology via a cool, hands-on learning kit? Oh, and have it all tie together in an educational comic book?
In our modern age of technology, it is becoming harder and harder to capture the attention of many kids. Concerned parents, however, do not have to give up the fight for books over screens. Comic books and graphic novels can be fabulous ways to help kids put down the video game controllers and start reading again.

The illustrations in the Know Yourself Adventure Series 1 entice readers to find out more. Also, early or struggling readers can benefit from the visual components that compliment the storyline.
The suggest age range for Know Yourself Adventure Series 1 is 7-12. My four older boys (ages 5, 7, 11, 13) all enjoyed the comic and activities. Older brothers helped younger brother, making for a wonderful multi-age, collaborative activity.
The activities to explore the 5 Senses are unique and thought-provoking. The boys and I would read the material and make predictions on how our experiments would turn out. We would perform the steps and discuss our results. Often, one of the boys would scamper off in search of a related book in our homeschool library to further explore the concept.
Check Out All That Know Yourself Adventures Series 1 Includes!
The amount of materials in our first kit astounded us! We had everything we needed to complete all experiments (except ingredients for the 2 Greek food recipes). I love subscription kits and homeschool resources that save me prep time!
All the Know Your Self Adventure 1 activities and components come inside the Historator, a uniquely designed time traveling machine (such a great way to get kids imaginations going!). Included in the box are the following:
1. Time Skaters Comic, Issue 1: “Fangs of Philosophy” (40 pages)
2. Adventure Guide Booklet (28 pages)
3. Sticker Sheet
4. World Map Poster
6. Egg Shaker
7. Secret Ultra-Violet Writing Pens
10. Magnifying Glass
All of these awesome learning fun goodies for only $29.99! I think that is an incredible price considering the fact that your kids are learning about history, science, psychology, art, geography, and cooking!
Here is what the creators of Know Yourself Adventure Series have to say:
Know Yourself is addressing one of the top challenges facing parents today: teaching their children how to be human in the face of addictive technology and overly stimulating diversions. Know Yourself has created an educational pathway to understanding human anatomy, physiology, psychology, and most importantly how they work together to move any person toward their full potential.
The boys have been revisiting their experiments and excitedly demonstrating their knowledge (Coach gets quite a show every night!). The most frequently used items from the Historator have been the UV Light Pens and mini-notebooks. Smiley and Bear have been leaving secret "messages" for each other, kind of like a treasure hunt. Great for practicing writing and art skills!
I can't wait to share about how the boys and I will be using Know Yourself Adventure Series 2: The Skeletal System (it's set in Russia!).
What part of this monthly subscription kit to you know would rock your homeschool?
