NEW: Sing Spanish Songs in “Libro de Canciones Infantiles”
We’re thrilled to announce a BRAND NEW songbook from Prodigies, Mi Primer Libro de Canciones.
Folks have been requesting a Spanish language songbook for years, and with the help of Prodigies own Ms. Andrea, our team is thrilled to share this long awaited collection.
NEW: Play some family friendly card games with our NEW Bell Playing Cards
We played a lot of cards in my family growing up and we’re excited to share a colorful and musical take on some classic family friendly card games.
Inside the PDF, you’ll find instructions for half a dozen classic card games for kids (as well as some ideas for making them a bit more musical).
You can purchase the PDF in our shop or download it inside the Resources area of Prodigies!
Currently, these cards are just available as a printable PDF, but we’re looking into getting them properly printed and available in the shop.
NEW: Have a fun household Scavenger Hunt using colorful cards and a handy graphic organizer
Growing up, I used to LOVE having Scavenger Hunts. Sometime my cousin would make them for me, or I would make them for my brothers, but it was a screen free and fun way to kill a couple hours.
I’ve definitely been keeping that tradition alive with our daughter Lil, but setting up the hunt can be a little overwhelming at times.
So to make the scavenger hunt setup a bit less brain-busting for moms and dads everywhere, I put together a simple graphic organizer as well as a handful of colorful cards that you can use to make your next household scavenger hunt fun and easy.
NEW: Demo Some of the New Games We’re Building
We’ve been working on dozens of mini-games, as well as some bigger quiz type games, to make Prodigies more interactive than ever in 2023.
We’re still in beta mode and trying to find the best platforms and tech to make it all happen, but we’re excited to share some of the demos we’ve been working on below!
