Are you interested in learning about the meaning of a family member or friend’s name and giving it to them as a gift? CrossTimber has an 8×10 Plaque print where you can choose up to 3 names to learn their meaning. One option comes with a beautiful blue butterfly on a blue background. The name or names are at the top with the origin and meaning underneath. Placed at the bottom of the print are relevant Bible verses.
The AmazingName Print Activity Sheets contains 28 pages with different word searches, crossword puzzles, mazes, tracing and copying, handwritten verses, coloring pages and easy math games with one chosen name. These pages are geared towards those between the ages of 3 and 12, but older children and adults will enjoy the adult coloring pages and word searches.
When we were offered the chance to review CrossTimber, Christie was interested, because she wanted to learn more about her name. She had the choice to pick either the Name Cards, Bookmarks, or 8×10 Plaque prints. She decided to pick the print, because she could frame it and put it on her wall. When we were picked for the review, we sat down together to order it. The ordering was easy. We went to CrossTimber and followed the instructions and links to pick the 8×10 Plaque print (blue with a blue butterfly). We had the choice of adding 1, 2, or 3 names. She chose to do all three. Then we submitted the order and went through the simple ordering process for the physical copies of the AmazingName Print Activity Sheets. It too was an easy process. Then we waited for them to arrive in the mail. When they arrived in the mail, Christie was excited. She opened everything and decided that we had a brown frame that would help the blue standout, so she could easily display it in her room. She was learned what each part of her name means and Bible verses that she can focus on. She also looked through the activity sheets to see what she would start on first. She has worked on word searches and coloring pages.
I thought the 28 pages of activity sheets were great, because of the wide variety. Christie had the opportunity to do word searches and crossword puzzles, mazes, tracing and copying her name and handwritten verses. There were also coloring pages and easy math games. Most of these activities were too easy for Christie, but she enjoyed the harder word searches and coloring pages. It was neat how many times I saw her name on the different pages. The coloring sheets were my favorite, because the names were cleverly hidden and were complex enough to really occupy one’s time.
I liked the quality of the print. The blue background and butterfly with Christie’s name, the meanings, and the Bible verses was both pretty and moving. I had no idea that her middle name meant warrior or her last name meant revealer of the light. It will be interesting to pass on this information to family members with the same name. The Bible verses were appropriate, because they focused on the meanings of the names used. It should be mailed with some stiff cardboard instead of stiff card stock, because the mailman had to stuff it in our mailbox. Fortunately, only the packaging ripped.
Christie’s Thoughts (9th Grade):
I chose the blue butterfly name plaque, and I put it in a wooden picture frame. It now sits on a shelf in my room. I thought it was interesting that the Bible verses were relevant to the meaning of my name.
I enjoyed the coloring sheets, because they are more suitable for my age compared to the other activities. I think the more complicated coloring sheets are nice for people who want something a little harder. I think the simple mazes and letter tracing would be great for younger children. I think that the CrossTimber products would be good for people of all ages.
