Learning Resources Review and Giveaway

Do your kids love learning as much as mine?  Do you have trouble finding toys and games that are educational, yet fun at the same time?   Learning resources "is a leading manufacturer of innovative, hands-on educational materials for classrooms and learning toys for the home. For more than 25 years, the company has been a trusted source for educators and parents for quality, award-winning educational products."  Just visit their easy to navigate website and you will be amazed at how many wonderful products that your child would be interested in and benefit from.
 For 2012, Learning Resources has released a huge variety of new educational toys.  Amongst them is the Primary Science Mix and Measure Set.  This set includes "chunky, colorful tools are contoured for little hands".  Amongst the tools are 3 self-standing spoons, 6 unique cup designs help children visualize quantities, a bowl with lid, and a scale.  While my girls would be just happy as can be measuring and pouring water for hours, I love that the kit comes with Activity Cards to guide children and their parents on various fun "experiments".

My girls, ages 5 and 7, were both instantly engaged with the set.  My five year old loves that she can now make her own bubble solution.  Like most kids, she manages to spill her fair share of store bought bubble solution and she is now excited that she can refill her bottles on her own.  My seven year old loves that she can now create her own slime and clay.  By creating the clay and leaving it white, she also gets the chance to paint her project when it dries.  This is a wonderful set for elementary kids and I would recommend it as a mother and a teacher.  My girls are learning fractions without even knowing it.

Would you like your own Primary Science Mix and Measure Set?  Simply fill out the Rafflecopter form below for a chance to win!

Open to youth aged 7-17 who reside in the U.S., the contest awards kids giving back to their communities through volunteer work. For 2012, Farm Rich will recognize quarterly winners as well as an annual grand-prize winner who will receive $10,000 for the charity of his or her choice.

A first-, second-, and third-place winner will be chosen each quarter to receive donations of $3,500, $1,500 and $1,000, respectively, for their chosen charities. Honorable mentions each quarter get a “Pat on the Back” gift card of $250.

To enter, kids should go to and submit a 250- to 500-word essay explaining their volunteer work and how it has helped others. Entrants are also encouraged to include a creative representation of their story along with their entries. Contest rules, details and deadlines are included on the website.

§  Ricky Springer of McDonough, Ga., who started Racing for a Cause to educate others on the disorder eosinophillic colitis, which he suffers from himself.
