CowBell for cheering at sporting Events Review

"More Cowbell!" is just fun to say. I got a chance to review a Cowbell from CowBells4u.com. You can purchase their Cowbells on Amazon for $19.99. They do come in a variety of colors. I was sent white.


You may be wondering why in the heck I'd want to review a Cowbell?

I play games with my students in the classroom. 

Three students at a time sit up front with 3 types of buzzers, or bells. I keep rotating the students, so everyone gets a chance to play. I ask them review questions. They can use their notes for the game. Whomever beeps, buzzes, or rings in first gets to answer the question. If they get the question wrong, or no one beeps, buzzes, or rings anyone gets a chance to steel. 

With each question a students gets right, they get 2 extra credit points in my class. That may not seem like a lot of points, but one student could get 10 questions right = 20 extra credit points. 

Whoever wins the most points in the room gets a Snickers Bar. Sometimes we have ties, so a few Snickers Bars get handed out. 

I use a megaphone that has button noises on it, a beeper from a game, and now I have a Cowbell they can use. I already have a lot of fun with the megaphone. Now I get to have fun with the Cowbell! I get to say, "More Cowbell!"


It's Fun to Make Some Noise at Times!

Other things you can use a Cowbell for:
  • Cheer on your favorite team 
  • Instead of tapping wine glasses at a wedding reception, you can use a Cowbell
  • Getting kid's attention in a fun way
The Bell's Smooth Finish Makes the Surface Easy to Decorate and Customize:
  • Stickers
  • Decals
  • Paint 
  • Permanent Markers
  • Round Bumper Stickers
You can show off your team or school spirit! I put the school's bumper sticker on mine. It has to wrap around a little, but it's still fun!


Ring for a KISS! 
Ring for the New Year!
Decorate with Bride & Groom's Name and Date.

The only downside is that the paint started coming off on the inside. No one looks at the inside very much. It makes me wonder how long the paint will last. That was just after a few rings. I almost think the company should just leave the inside unpainted.

This made me laugh. For some ODD reason, the sound of cowbells annoys my father unbelievably.

I could use that cowbell when my husband's in the basement and I'm trying to get him to come upstairs to eat.

Jason is always saying "More Cowbell" so this is something he'd get a kick out of having. I should get one for Allison's track meets. She'd be so embarrassed, but it would be so fun to clang around to root her on!

Too funny. I agree, the world can always use more cowbell.

When my mom was very sick, she used one to get my Dad's attention so he'd come back in the bedroom where she was.
