Picture this, you are on an extended drive to a relatives wouldn’t you rather be the relaxed parent whose children are heavily engaged in quiet learning than the one constantly reprimanding their kids? We’ve all been there…Johnny keep your hands to yourself, Susie stop kicking the chair, Tommy if I hear you say you are bored or ask if we are there yet one more time… Why even toy with the embarrassment and headache when there is no need?
Eye Spy Bags are jam packed with educational games for kids
Develop patience and bilateral and fine motor skills by manipulating the pallets to move so that objects on the card can be displayed via the window. For extensions try racing a friend to see who can find all of the objects first, find an object that is blue or begins with ‘s’, rhymes with ‘bar’ or would come in the same category as night and moon. The opportunities are endless.
Eye Spy Bags cater for literacy skills for all ages
From the age of 2 parents can use the Eye Spy Bag to develop vocabulary, from 3 and 4 years initial sounds such as ‘f’ for flower and final sounds such as ‘t’ for cat can be explored. As children enter the Primary years Medial sounds, diphthongs and diagraphs can also be learned in a fun way as the child’s ability develops. The Eye Spy Bags instruction tag assists children learning to read. It can be easily removed for an extra challenge. But the joy doesn’t stop there, many of our bags have been purchased and used by our grandparents to keep their fingers and minds active.
