Exploring the World Through Sensory Tube

So what do kids need to do with four clear tubes?? Well there are tons of things to do with them! They come with solid lids that fit on the end so you can actually put liquid in them and they also come with a vented lid to stimulate the nose... possibly with a flower or maybe add in some herbs and spices or some essential oils. Of course you can also put in anything solid and colorful!!! When we first received the tubes we were pretty excited to try them out so off we went on a hunt to find objects to put in the tubes for little Ms. Charlee Ann to try out. She is always fascinated with her sister's ball collection. Her sister collects the tiny bouncy balls and Charlee Ann is never allowed to play with them because they are still a choking hazard for her. So we filled 2 of the tubes up with little bouncy balls and you should have seen her face light up!! She got the biggest grin on her face and looked at her sister in amazement and said really loud .... BALLS!! So then we found some beads and added them to another one and filled the last one full of bells. Every single one of them was a hit. We were able to shake them all and hear different sounds and look through the clear glass and see all the different colors! We had a ball....no pun intended.

Expensive for Quality

The solar system colors and sizes looked great. When we tried to inflate most of the smaller shapes were oval or lopsided. The smaller ones were also really hard to inflate because the nozzle didn't have an air trap so they would start to deflate as soon as you were done inflating. We ended up finding the same thing much cheaper and should have gone with the cheaper version of the same thing.

We love our sensory tubes. I was worried that they would not withstand my two little rugrats, but they have held up through the beating that they take. My little guy thinks they are bats. I love being able to change them out to go with the season or holiday or even whatever lesson we are "teaching". THe end with the holes is a big hit with my kids - they love to smell whatever I put in them. The kids could eventually get the ends off I imagine if they tried, but it would take quite awhile. Nonetheless, I keep any of the tubes with water and food coloring off the carpet just in case.

My kids both love our sensory tubes. Because I can put any old thing into them, I can change them up as often as I want. The kids really love the ability to smell things in them. I can change it up to go along with the seasons, or whatever we are focusing on, like colors, shapes, or letters.

I received these to review and I just LOVE them! They are SO versatile - especially since they include solid and vented caps. We've used them for counting/sorting, separating objects by colors, creating rice "I Spy" tubes, simple density tests, and much more!

Kids First Science Magnet Kit

My boys (4 and 5) are curious about everything. Now that my one is in Kindergarten he is starting to learn more about all sorts of subjects, science especially. Magnets are something that always amazed me so I admit I was just as excited to check out the Primary Science Magnet Set from Learning Resources, as my boys were! This kit includes 14 pieces including 10 double-sided activity cards. The activity cards are both easy and challenging and some require some household objects such as water or paperclips. The set though was fun on its own for us. My boys were amazed at how the magnets would stick together one way and not the other way. I started teaching them about polar opposites, magnetism and science in general. The pieces that this kit comes with are ones that I would have never thought of using together. There is a big horsehoe magnet perfect to work little magnetic ladybugs through a maze. Ring magnets and a magnetic post are fun because you can make the magnetics float on the pole. My sons favorite though is the Snap-on Cars. You can push the cars together and watch them spin away from one another or magnetically snap them together to zoom around. This is a simple kit but fun and perfect for young learners.

Engauging Science Set

I couldn't agree more with my kids that Science is so much fun! Now I will admit that sometimes teaching your kids all about the how's and whys of science can seem like a huge daunting task but it doesn't have to be! Why as of recently, I've been teaching my four year old daughter the wonders and ways of magnetism, thanks to a great new science activity set from Learning Resources! First thing to know is that the Primary Science Magnet Set from Learning Resources is geared toward children ages 4-12 years old. The set comes with 10 double sided activity cards, an extremely helpful guide, and lots of other eye catching items (14 total) that have kept my daughter quite engaged in learning and exploring the many different ways magnets work. A few of the activities we tried out where the Amazing Maze, in which the key concept was that magnets can retain their magnetic force through other objects. My daughter took the large yellow magnet in the set on moved it around underneath the leaf maze to move both of the included ladybugs! She totally was intrigued and having a lot of fun. The next activity we did together was the Floating Magnets, in which we used the four round magnets and the long pole. This activity taught my daughter all about how magnets can attract and repel! She was very fascinated by everything that we did and has learned with the set with me during our schooling time and has enjoyed playing with it many times all on her own. My four year old loves to tinker so this set has been a wonderful educational tool in our home giving her the freedom to explore in learning all about polarity, attraction, and repulsion in fun hands on way! I highly recommend The Primary Science Magnet Set for any home or school classroom. The set is colorful, durable, engaging, and encourages kids to be hands on in learning new things!
