White Tailed Deer 300 Piece Puzzle And Camper Damper Game Review by Teri Lucas

Outset Media Corporation
#106-4226 Commerce Circle
Victoria, BC, Canada V8Z 6N6

If you are looking for something fun to do with your children over the summer, during the school breaks, or in the evenings instead of watching a video, Outset Media has a wonderful selection of games and puzzles for families. Designed to enhance thinking skills and stimulate the mind, their inventory includes educational word, math and social studies games, as well as, Professor Noggin's card games, trivia games, and extremely nice puzzles suitable for framing.

The White Tailed Deer Puzzle is a high definition 300 piece puzzle. The box gives a small piece of information about the deer. This is one of Outset Media's Canadian Geographic Series.

Camper Damper Card Game is for ages six and up, and is for 2-5 players. Each player tries to be the first to complete his or her camping trip while the other campers are trying to sabotage you. To win the game a player must be the first to collect 1 shelter, 2 food and 3 fun cards.

Again, these games and puzzles are securely packaged, nicely done and loads of fun. Who doesn't want to have a little fun with their kids after the long school year? Some of the games and puzzles would nicely enhance a nature, geographic, or social studies/history study. I am always on the lookout for special projects to make learning fun, so I would definitely recommend taking a look at the Outset Media website.
