I’ve had a hard time in the past getting my oldest daughter to be motivated enough to stick with things when they get difficult /challenging. I came across Blimey Box and knew I had to try it. And it truly was all I thought it would be and more... I literally watched my daughter struggling with a Blimey Box task yesterday and i just knew she was going to blow up and quit (judging from past experience with her) so I suggested she take a break. But, to my shock, she refused to stop- and the PROBLEM SOLVING and THINKING continued!! She stuck with the task...and she finished!!! And the struggling made the triumph even sweeter. I was so glad she was able to feel the rush of achievement- that feeling of working hard and reaching a goal. I was also so encouraged by watching her complete something hard—she just needed the right motivation!
Blimey Box is fun for the kids, and me...I really think it’s the greatest thing ever! We are using it daily in our homeschool now and it is the most exciting part of the day!
