TOS Review: Vintage Remedies for Kids

Vintage Remedies was established in the summer of 2005 to be part hobby/job of founder and homeschooling mom Jessie Hawkins who was eager to share her knowledge that she had collected through the years.  From the website,  "Vintage Remedies was established primarily to fill the gap in natural wellness options. We stand squarely in the middle of the medicine wars, believing that prevention is the key to health and that natural options are usually the best first steps to regain wellness. However, we also appreciate the advancements of modern medicine and the life saving techniques that are available for extreme situations. We seek to empower mothers, wives and parents across the globe that strive for excellence in their calling. Our basic programs are designed to enable individuals everywhere to relearn the basic techniques and skills that were so commonplace decades ago. Our advanced programs are suitable for current or aspiring professionals that seek to include wellness initiatives and natural options in their services."  We have had the opportunity to use and review Vintage Remedies For Kids over the last several weeks.

Vintage Remedies for Kids was written to help parents teach boys and girls ages 2-6 healthy and natural living.  The book is spiral bound and contains 202 black and white pages.  There are three sections: Food and Drink, Health and Wellness, and Healthy Lifestyles covering a total of 18 different topics.  Each topic has a section for the parent to read, a section for the parent to read to the child, additional comments, discussion questions, a lead by example section, a featured project, and additional projects.  There are free coloring sheets available to go along with the book  on the website for your children to color while you are reading to them or setting up the project.

You can purchase Vintage Remedies For Kids for $25.00 by clicking here.

From the moment I received the package I was very impressed with this product.  The cover of the book is adorable.  The spiral binding makes frees mom's hands from holding the book open which is a big blessing when you are juggling a wiggly baby while reading and also when you are working in the kitchen on the projects.  The layout of the book is fantastic.  The separate readings for parents to read themselves and to read to the children make it so easy for the parents to learn along with the child (and I am learning a lot!)  Each section has a featured project, but there are also additional projects listed if you are not interested in making the main project or just want to do more.  Necessary supplies to complete the project are listed clearly listed so you can look in advance and see what you need to purchase. 

Vintage Remedies for Kids is both educational and fun without being overwhelming for mom to implement.  Although it is geared for ages 2-6 I used it with my 2,4,6,8,and 10 year olds (I just didn't tell the older two boys it was for ages 2-6 ;)  I did change the wording a bit when I read from the Read to Me section.  They would have frowned a bit hearing the term "owie." Children learn best by doing, and we have had a lot of fun doing the hands on projects.

You do need to make sure that you plan ahead so you can purchase what you will need for the projects.  We have been doing one topic and project a week and I have been adding the supplies we don't already have to my grocery list on Friday to use on Monday.

I am very impressed with Vintage Remedies For Kids and look forward to all of the fun and educational projects we will have coming up.  As a thank you for reviewing their product, they also sent me The Kitchen Herbel  which is full of wonderful information and delicious recipes!

I received a complimentary copy of Vintage Remedies For Kids for the purpose of writing a fair and honest review.  I received no other compensation.
