This holiday when your children are surrounded by mounds of action figures, dolls and video games, don’t miss out on the opportunity to give them something educational and fun to enhance the holiday season. “Educational and Fun” you say “How can that be”? My answer is simple..School Zone.
It’s no secret that School Zone is one of my all time favorite companies, their products are high quality with reasonable pricing. They feature great graphics, engaging activity, and my children love doing them with me. A big factor with educational products is that you enhance learning by playing “with” your children. They love it and pick up things so much faster when you take a little time to play along and guide them.
I was sent some fun new School Zone activities to test with my kids. When I saw the 3D Think & Blink Alphabet Flash Cards I knew that Noah and Brigs would be hooked. These aren’t your Grandma’s flash cards, they are 3D lenticular cards so that when you tilt the card at an angle you can see not only the letter but a corresponding picture of an object. They come packaged in a sturdy tote box and have been a hit with my two youngest children ages 3 and 5. For $7.99 these are a winner and would make a great stocking stuffer.
Next came the Little Hand Helper Work book, and the Wonder Words Combo book with Software. School Zone has such a wide range of activity books and they are so well designed. My son Joshua loved the Little Hand Helper Work Book so much that once he tried it, that he took it and hid it in our house so the other kids couldn’t write in it! He takes it out, traces the trails and then puts it back in a secret holding cell where it’s safe.
The Wonder Words Combo
is an activity system with book and software for learning beginning sight words and picture words. It takes you through alphabet order, beginning sounds, reasoning and more. My kids gained alot of confidence in doing this book with me. They loved the included software as well, it was fun and gave good directions. The workbook even gives Mom and answer key in the back just in case it’s been a few years since we were in school.
Check out School Zone’s website for toys, games, activities and more to enhance your child’s development at any age and give you some fun bonding time with them. You’re kids will always make the grade with School Zone! – Daria
