We’ve been a homeschooling family for almost 5 years now. When Logan started Kindergarten, Brooke was old enough and interested enough to do school with him. I didn’t worry about trying to keep her entertained during school because doing school with us was entertainment enough. This wasn’t the case when Erik was little though, and hasn’t been the case with Connor either. How on earth can I get school done with the older kids with little ones running around? Well, it’s not easy, but with companies like Learning Resources it’s gotten a lot easier!
Froggy Feeding Fun is a super neat learning toy from Learning Resources. With a gentle squeeze of the frog (“Tickle his sides”, I tell my 22 month old, Connor) froggy opens his mouth and is ready to eat the flies, helping little ones strengthen fine motor skills. Use the 2 dice (color die and number die) to further learning by developing number sense, counting and color recognition.
This activity set is already a hit with Connor. He loves using the frogs to pick up the flies (though it’s still a learning process for him). I’m excited because I can give it to him to play on his own with, but I can also use it with him for early learning! He has enjoyed counting the flies, and it’s also helping his color recognition as well. While I’m doing school with the other kids, I can give this to him to play with, and in the quiet moments of school I can work with Connor on colors, counting, etc.
It’s also quite entertaining for my older kids too. It’s great for Erik to help encourage math; We roll the color and number dice twice and count how many all together. We start with a number, roll the die and subtract that amount. I make a pattern and he completes it.
We’re having so much fun! I’ve found many ways I can use it for him for school; he’s thrilled to be able to play with it, I’m thrilled to be using it for creative learning!
The flies and dice came in a plastic bag, making clean up and storage easy too!
