About the Super Saints Craft Kit

The Super Saints Craft kit is a set of 54 saint cards that gives families a fun way to learn about the lives of the saints. It also comes with rules for two games, Super Saints Stats and Super Saints Showdown.

My Comments

In the past, I have reviewed two products from Equipping Catholic families, Lingo Bingo and Journey with Jesus: Sacraments. Therefore, when I had the opportunity to review the Super Saints Craft kit, I was happy to do so. In addition, because I enjoyed Lingo Bingo and journey with Jesus, I had high standards for the kit. I am happy to report that the Super Saints Craft kit not only met my expectations, but exceeded them.

Now, I didn’tย  have the time or have the chance to professionally print the cards at Staples or Office max, so I printed them out myself. I pretty much used up all my ink, but I wanted to try out the cards and get the review up in time for you to participate in the giveaway. It was worth it, and I’m glad I printed them out; however, I highly recommend you get them professionally printed and laminated so that they are sturdier and easier to play with.

And play we did! It was a lot of fun to play the games and I learned just as much as Andrew did about the saints. The craft gift is a game that we will play over and over again. The cards are adorable and contain simple and interesting facts that are easy to memorize.

Also, I can see the cards as being very versatile. For example, I am thinking that I may print out two copies of the cards and using them as Catholic version of “go fish.” They can also just be used as simple flash cards. I am pretty sure that those who are more creative than I will come up with better ideas of their own.

So, as you may have guessed, I definitely recommend the craft kit and give it four (4) stars.

My First Giveaway!

I’m very excited! I just finished my first eBook: “Simply Scrumptious Slow-Cooker Recipes.”ย  It is a project that I’ve been wanting to tackle awhile now.

I use my slow-cooker regularly – about once a week. I know there are a lot of people who have a slow-cooker tucked in the back of their closet or cabinet somewhere waiting to be used. With this eBook, I hope to inspire you to dust off that slow-cooker and start using it!

In this 22 page eBook you’ll find:

  • Tasty, easy to put together recipes
  • Benefits of using a slow-cooker
  • Advice on how to choose a slow-cooker
  • Two pages of time-saving and other tips

The eBook will be regularly priced at $9.95, but in celebration of the ebook’s launch, I am giving away FIVE (5) copies of the eBook FR*EE! To participate, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post with your name and email address. I’ll pick a winner Thursday around 2pm and then post the winners soon after. (You will NOT be signed up for giving your email address. I just need it so that I can let you know that you’ve won!)

Since there can only be 5 winners, everyone else will get a 20% discount on the regular price for a limited time. The code for the discount will be given out when I announce the winners.

( To get an idea of what kind of recipes you’ll find, take a peek at my Slow-Cooker Chili Recipe, which is one of the recipes included in the eBook. You can learn more and read a snippet of the introduction by going here.)
