Homeschool Tools: TheO SmartBall #giveaway

Disclaimer: I received a product to review. All opinions are my own.

As we continue on our homeschool journey, I have been looking for things we can use now and for years to come, especially with Kodabug in the mix now. One of the biggest things I've learned so far is to have educational activities that can change up the process. I like to be able to have Tbomb still learn, but do something different when he is getting antsy, instead of punishing him. Enter: TheO SmartBall.

This ball is awesome. Although I could use my phone with it, I choose not to (I have to be able to take photos). I use a small 4.7 inch tablet we have that isn't being used much. (In fact, its mostly used in the car.) I've downloaded TheO apps to it and we dove in. Some of it is a little advanced for Tbomb, but that just shows me that it will be relevant to us for years to come.  The version we have fits up to a 4.7 screen, while the new XL version will fit a Galaxy S5 or the new iPhone 6.

TheO apps include Math Flash, Active 123 and Hot Potato. These apps use the different features of smart phones, like motion detection, to add to the experience.
TheO™ SmartBall’s revolutionary technology has combined physical activity, learning and fun into one dynamic experience. Kids love all the incredible Apps! Simply, download one of our fun-filled apps from the iTunes App Store or Google Play. Insert your Apple or Android device into the TheO™ SmartBall, and let the fun begin. You will be amazed at how much fun your kids will have interacting with TheO™ SmartBall.

In addition to TheO apps, I have found an amazing use for this ball. I have installed several "rattle" apps for Kodabug. She likes these while we do school and on the rare occasion she is fussy. I used to worry about her throwing the tablet, but not anymore. Now, I just  pop it in TheO SmartBall and let her have fun. Even outside, I don't have to worry about it landing on the gravel because the device sits so far inside the foam that there is no way it is going to touch a surface.

We are still finding new ways to use TheO SmartBall in our home and school. I'm thinking about having a family game night with it and using the big screen options shown on the website.
