Alright, I admit it. I am hopelessly addicted to Skylanders! From the moment I found out what it was all about, I was itching for my son to get involved with it. Much to my delight, he brought it up first and in my most Dadly voice I told him I would think about it. Secretly I was jumping for joy on the inside! You see, I have a a very addictive collector side to me that I haven’t been able to use since I was a young hockey card collector and I can’t wait to dig into this thing.
I’m incredibly happy to have teamed up with Activision to be able to share a new downloadable Skylanders Giants Homework Pack, that aims to help your child educate YOU on their favourite characters and introduce you to the wonderful world of Skylanders! You can download a digital copy of the Homework Pack by CLICKING HERE.
The Homework pack features five chapters of fun – one for every week day:
– Monday: History (Skylanders story – SSA and Giants)
– Tuesday: Science (elemental sources)
– Wednesday: Characters (character’s abilities, strengths and weaknesses)
– Thursday: Technology (practicalities of what and how to buy and play)
– Friday: Art (to include dot-to-dot and drawing of key characters)
– Quiz sheets at the end of each chapter testing parents on what they’ve learned that day
– Reward charts to stick on the fridge door with a Skylanders sticker that children award parents once a chapter is complete successfully.
But that’s not all I have for you! I am also giving away a Hard Copy of the Homework Pack that will be accompanied by one of the popular Skylanders characters! I don’t know which character but it doesn’t really matter, does it?!
All you have to do to enter is leave a comment and tell me who your child’s favourite Skylander is. It’s as easy as that! Does your child have 5 favourites like I do? That’s okay, list them all! Giveaway is open to residents of Canada, excluding Quebec, and will close at noon on Sunday, May 19th. Good Luck!
Also, you can follow the Skylanders on Facebook and Twitter to make sure you don’t miss any of the news and action from inside the game!
Congrats to the winner, Alanna Smith!

I sit in meetings all day long with teachers and parents who struggle to get children to initiate and enjoy writing activities. As we often attempt to focus them back on the “academics” of what’s going on in the classroom, they continue to let us know that their interests aren’t always in alignment with those dreaded common core standards.
These days superheroes and games like Skylanders are a huge motivational source for children. So let’s face it, sometimes in order to get children to feel passionate and enthusiastic about activities that are hard for them, disguising it in the form of their favorite characters is a win-win for everyone. So though I’m not sure entire classes will be utilizing these fun new Skylanders materials at the same time as an added feature to the curriculum, parents and tutors who will be looking for some fun summer activities that keep kids reading and answering comprehension questions will be sure to find some value in the form of this free downloadable Skylanders printable homework packet.
Activision, has developed an entire downloadable series of Skylanders Giants Homework Pack materials that include questions about history, science, the toys, and art (coloring pages, dot to dots), which you can download here for your children here: Skylanders Giants Activity Kit.
In addition, one lucky reader will have a chance to win a Skylanders Giants character figure for their favorite player and a hard copy of the booklet. Enter the Rafflecopter giveaway here.
