It’s that time of year again. Summer is winding down and the kids will be in school full time before we know it. It’s been a great summer but now it’s time to start thinking about buckling down a little bit and getting the kids in learning mode.
To do this, I like to ease into learning with a few fool proof activities that will prove to be great refresher courses in last year’s lessons. For example, I love the Play Money Coins and Bills by Educational Insights available at Kazoo Toys. My rising second grader will definitely need to do a little brushing up on his money knowledge because we just didn’t get to review it over the summer. This great little set features play money in a really realistic format to make learning values and using math skills easy and fun.
Another great item at Kazoo Toys is the Little Red School House by Pacific Play Tents. This schoolhouse has two windows with curtains and a front door to enter the school room. It is the perfect hands on toy to get my four year old excited to go back to school and to continue to encourage him to play cooperatively with others.
Last but not least, both my boys need new backpacks for school and finding a good one in a cute, not too old but not too young theme is somewhat challenging. At Kazootoys.com they have a great selection by Wildkin including the Astronaut, the Camouflage and the Soccer, among others. I’m excited for the boys to pick the ones they love!
So say goodbye to summer and get ready for the new school year by visiting Kazoo Toys. If you hurry you’ll be able to take advantage of their Back to School sale featuring 20% off certain items now through September 1, 2011.
