We were recently asked if we would be interested in testing a product that may suit our needs as parents and home educators, in exchange for our honest feedback.
We were happy to film a short video to share a more in-depth review. You can find it here:
What I especially loved about this product were two things it wasn’t even intended for: water and chalk! Though I don’t recommend it for those uses, especially not for long term use (as it isn’t cured for water exposure), we had a blast putting this thing to the test. No pinched fingers, minimal frustration, and a huge amount of knowledge opportunities.
Favorite ways to play:
One simple and inexpensive idea is to use the magnetic/foam letters as templates to trace out a word onto card stock – I use dollar store note cards or flash cards for this purpose. Have your child ‘match’ the outlines. Great for fine motor, pincer grasp, and a host of other skills for developing minds and muscles.
We currently have the lowercase set packed with pre-filled flash cards, in a travel pouch (zipper pencil pouch from the Dollar Tree) along with a small magnetic lid that is just the right size for a flash card. This makes for an excellent and quiet take-along kit!
