Put a twist on learning with Learning Resources + {Giveaway}

[…]Animal Counters from them and couldn’t wait for the opportunity to check out some more toys!  Learning Resources offers so many fun, learning toys for kids {or students}.    Maggie is quite the little 2 year old these days.  She wants hands on learning all day long….and most of it needs to involve water.  She loves to scoop water from one container into another, and prefers to take it from the dog dish.  When I saw these Twisty Droppers, I knew without a doubt that I had to have them!  How perfect, they have a big enough bulb on the end to fit in those tiny little hands.  I knew Maggie would love these, after all, they are made for the water!   I will admit, when they arrived and I opened them, I wasn’t so sure they would stand up to a 2 year old, but we put them to the test.  I was sure she would break them in half in no time at all. Well, she didn’t break them, they are very durable.  We did however break one of them, but only because it got left on the floor and daddy stepped on it and broke it.  The twisty design of these is so much fun.  I’m serious here, I was being a little kid with these too and was mesmerized watching the water go up…..and then down.  We even added food coloring to one bowl of water, and none to the other and she had fun making the other water turn red using these droppers.  I love that using the twisty droppers and squeezing the bulb teaches fine motor skills and cause and effect.  The bulbs are the perfect size for kids to use, and not just young toddlers, school age kids can enjoy these too.  {Recommended for ages 2-8} The twisty droppers come in a set of 4 with different colored bulbs and stems on each one.  The colors are bright and fun for kids.  I think our next play date with these will be with yellow food coloring in one bowl and blue in the other.  Can you guess what will happen?   Want to get some of your own…I mean, for your kiddos?  Hehe.   You can purchase some Twisty Droppers from Learning Resources for $12.99.

Counting on the farm makes learning fun

[…]much as I do?  I love that their products have multiple uses.  Every single thing we have from Learning Resources is still being used on a regular basis at our house.  I really love that they are great tools to add to any homeschooling program. It is that time of year again where farm animals are a big hit.  Living out in the country, we see lots of farm animals AND their babies.  Our favorites are the cows and their babies.  We like to pull over and count the animals and talk about their colors, but some days, that doesn’t fit into our plans.  That is where things like the In the Barn Farm Counters are fantastic to have. The In the Barn Farm Counters come in a set of 72 counters.  There are 6 different animals, cow, duck, pig, sheep, goat, rooster/hen, and horse in 6 different colors, red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple.  There are 2 of each animal in each color.  And, like all of their counters, they include a storage bucket and activity guide.  These counters are smaller than the jumbo animal counters, and are up to 1.25″ tall, and up to 2″ long. There are so many things my almost 2 year old and my 3 year old can learn with the In the Barn Farm Counters.  With Charlie, we can working on identifying animals and the sounds they make, as well as naming colors and separating by color or animal.  We also practice counting them, but his favorite is just lining them up.  With Maggie, we can take it up a notch, and do more than just counting and sorting.   We can talk about how if there are 3 cows and we add one more, how many cows are there now?  We can also practice simple and complex patterns.  She also likes to talk about what the animals like to do on the farm.  The pigs like the mud, the ducks like to go in the pond, etc.   She loves to group together as many animals as she can, before Charlie breaks in, and just play with them. There are a lot of pieces, but sometimes, we like to take these to a restaurant with us because there are so many different ways to play with them. Buy it:  You can pick up a set of 72 In the Barn Farm Counters for $22.99 Win it:  Win a set now!  Giveaway open to US.  Ends at 11: 59 pm EST May 31, 2014.  Good luck!

Holiday Gift Guide: The Best Education Toys for Christmas

[…]bins and trays with.  One of my favorite places to find the different education toys we love is Learning Resources.  We recently found a few more items to add to our learning stash, as well as a little something that Henry seems to really love.   The first item we received for review is the High Seas ADDventure addition game.  One thing that Maggie and I have done a lot of is play games together.  When she napped at a later time than Charlie, we would play games after he went to sleep until it was time for her to nap.  Now they nap together so we don’t have as much time to play alone, but we still sneak in some games together {and naps are starting to phase out, so we will have lots more time}.  The High Seas ADDventure addition game was a lot of fun to play.  We had so much fun playing one on one, but she was also learning a lot.  The game centers around counting to 10.  For the younger crowd, there are help sheets with arrows between the different numbers needed to get to 10.  I love that Maggie is a good sport whether she wins or loses and we can always celebrate anybody winning.  It’s also a great addition to our homeschool math tools. The second item we received is the Tumble Trax Magnetic Marble Run.  This ranks up there pretty high on my favorite things list.  With 10 activity cards, 4 marbles and 14 pieces, this is never ending fun.  While it does say agent 5+, this is my 3 year olds favorite thing to play with.  There is a basket type square piece that goes at the bottom to catch the marbles.  I had bought a large magnetic white board to use for our homeschool activities that works perfect for the Tumble Trax Magnetic Marble Run.  I set up the marble trax the first time by following one of the activity cards and then dropping the marbles.  We all had fun watching the marbles work their way down {seriously, who wouldn’t love this}.  Charlie wanted to play by himself so I let him have at it.  Either he is too young to follow the activity cards or he just didn’t want to, I don’t know, but I could actually SEE him learning as he moved the track pieces around.  Time after time he would set it up and the marble would either stop or fall off the board.  I could see his mind working to figure out what to do to make it follow the path to the bottom.  He would play with this all day, every day if I let him.  Maggie loves it to, and is able to follow the cards a little better.  She doesn’t get to play much though, Charlie pretty much hogs it {and hates that I “disappeared” it until Christmas}.  Seriously, this is sure to be a hit with any little learner…..or adult. The third item we received is the New Sprouts Stir Fry Set.  We love play food around here, whether it is desserts, dishes, or veggies.  If you are thinking that all play food is created equal, you are wrong.  We have quite a bit of food in our play kitchen, but I’ve gotten rid of a lot of it.  Over the last 4 years, some of it has gotten holes in it or fallen apart.  With the New Sprouts line of food and dishes, they are durable, colorful and perfect for those little hands.  I really love all of the healthy food lines that encourage good food choices for children.  As it turns out, Henry LOVES the broccoli {but beware with children under 3 because of choking hazards}.  The kids love this set that comes with peppers, peas, onions, carrots, celery pieces, broccoli, a fortune cookie, tongs, spoon for stirring, and the wok to cook it all in.  But, it wouldn’t be complete without the container to put it all in.  All three kids are always in the kitchen cooking it up, and Maggie never complains she doesn’t like something when it comes from their kitchen! While I think these 3 things are awesome gift ideas, there are a few other things from Learning Resources that I’m adding to the kids’ wish list for this year.  The Mental Blox and the Create-a-Maze.  What is on your kids’ wish lists from Learning […]
