The holidays are quickly approaching and a fantastic place to pick up some educational toys for your child(ren) is Lakeshore Learning. Lakeshore is dedicated to creating innovative educational materials that spark young imaginations, instill a sense of wonder and foster a lifelong love of learning. With materials for infants & toddlers through the 6th grade, they help children reach developmental milestones and achieve educational goals—while still having fun!
My pick for Kenzie this year is the Crafts Supply Center ($49.99). Since she loves to craft and "do art", this is the ultimate gift for budding artists. 20 clear-view drawers are overflowing with fuzzy pom-poms, colored wiggly eyes, sparkly pipe stems & much more! Includes activity book with 14 memorable projects. I love that this case keeps all the supplies organized because in a sea of toys, some sort of organization is a must to keep sane. When Kenzie's friends come over, this will be great to keep them occupied while having loads of fun using their creativity and imagination.
Mason's pick this year is he Sort A Shape Activity Board ($19.99). Since he has been interested in placing the caps on water bottles and pouches, I thought this would be perfect for him to work on his eye/hand coordination as well as putting some thought into finding the corresponding shape. Little ones fit 16 jumbo, easy-grip pieces into place…and explore colors, shapes and early sorting skills—all at once! The big wooden pieces come in 4 shapes and 4 bright colors…kids just slide them onto the matching pegs.
A wonderful holiday pick for siblings to play together is the Stick All Around Geo Builders ($29.99). Although these are recommended for preschool children, I think both Mason and Kenzie will have hours of fun sticking and building. Kids can create incredible 3-D designs that are as wild as their imaginations! Each rugged plastic builder features a permanently attached suction cup that sticks to any other builder…children simply press them together to build in any direction! Best of all, kids can just pull them apart when they’re ready to build again!
