TOPICS | Parenting | Education Posted Monday, July 28, 2014 (443 views)

We know how hard it can be to get your child prepared to begin preschool. We have provided a few educational items to help you enhance your child’s preparedness. Don’t stress, these three fantastic products will make learning fun for any child.

Smarty Blocks is one of the best choices to get (and keep) your child’s minds active. This game will be a great tool now and down the road when they start reading. The lower-level challenge cards present a picture that your child must try and copy in less than one minute. When your child is a little older and has started reading, have them try the higher-level challenge cards, which requires some reading. Smarty Blocks was designed by educators and targets the interests of young children. Kids are happy to get playing with the blocks that have animal graphics, alphabet letters, numbers, and colors! This game is for speedy little skill builders for growing minds!

Looking to give your preschool age children a jump-start on measurement and basic math? Take them on a mathematical safari adventure with Inchimals!
