I finished making four new pencil adventures, and my son was eager to try them out. While he was doing them, he commented that it was hard to stay on the path, and that his hand was getting tired from working at being so careful.
In the dragon adventure, you have to avoid the dragon’s fire and draw circles to capture the dragon and her gold.
The Egyptian Adventures are a three part series. In the first one you go down into the pyramid and meet up with a mummy and snakes. You then have to choose between two doors which lead to the next two pages. The second page takes you to more mummies and a crocodile before you find the Pharoah’s gold. On the third page, you have to write the answer to a riddle to pass the sphinx, swing over quick sand, and avoid a crocodile to get to the Pharoah’s gold.
Kids enjoy practicing their pencil skills while doing these adventures. A therapist that I work with tapes the laminated adventures on the wall or white board, and has her group of kids go from adventure to adventure. I am sure that they will be thrilled to have four more to work their way through. Here is a link if you would like to purchase the pencil adventures. I like to laminate them so that I can use them over and over again. I purchased a personal laminator this summer for a different project, and I have used it a lot this year. It cuts down on making copies. I bought a Purple Cows Hot and Cold Laminator from Costco, but there is a laminator from scotch brand that is cheap too, and it looks really good.
