Play and Learn Kits

Looking for a unique way for the early learners in your family to learn the alphabet or about people in their community?  Or perhaps learn about odd and even numbers or ending sounds while having fun?

Research tells us that there are five basic literacy skills that help children learn to read and learn– read, write, sing, talk and play.  The Play and Learn Kits offer young children an avenue to practice their logical thinking, problem-solving and gross and fine motor skills by using one of the five basic literacy skills – play.

Interactive plays makes learning fun.  With the Play & Learn kits for ages 3 and up, early learners can engage with rhymes, colors, numbers and more to stimulate learning!
