Many mats are made of harmful chemicals – NO THANKS, but thinksport’s yoga mats are not – YES PLEASE! I personally don’t like to think of myself rubbing, laying, or sweating against a mat that is seeping chemicals into my skin. Now, I don’t have to worry about unnecessary chemicals while I am trying to relax and make my body healthier while doing yoga or pilates. This mat is thicker than any of my previous yoga mats, and I won’t be going back to those flimsy, chemical smelling mats. The mats are even biodegradable WOW. Thinksport really went above and beyond in designing this mat for yoga and Pilate enthusiasts.
Guess My Picture is part puzzle, part art project and part guessing game. It promotes spatial thinking and fine motor skills and allows artists of all levels to excel at creating recognizable pictures. Players take turns being the artist and the guesser. The artist combines pre-cut circles, squares, squiggles and other two-dimensional pieces to make replicas of images printed on game cards. If the artist turns over a card with a house on it, she may lay a large square on the game board, then place a triangle above it to make a basic house shape. A more advanced player might add a rectangle for a chimney and some curves for smoke, and maybe even layer on some squares for windows or a garage. Guessers try to match the artist’s creations with the corresponding cards. Stars are awarded for making and identifying pictures correctly; the player with the most stars at the end of the game wins. The game ends after each player has a turn being the artist.
