Technology detox - refresh and reset

Recently there has been no getting away from the commentary

Vast amounts of articles and literature out there currently commentating on the technology overloaded environment that we’re living in at the moment. While there are very valid arguments on both sides we think that having a balanced life and teaching our children the value of balance early on is invaluable. So for this month we are taking it back to basics with our brand new additions of traditional (some might say ‘old school’ and we love 'old school') tried and tested educational toys. 

Easy as A, B C! P.S. No charging or batteries required! :)

A is for Alphabet Abacus

Abacus Our Alphabet Abacus is a double sided abacus that gives the ABC's a playful twist with letters, numbers, words as well as pictures! This classic attractive toy stimulates learning using every day recognisable objects for easy retention.

B is for Blocks of wisdom

Each block includes a number, letter or picture to help your child learn 

 

C is for Cutting Fruit

This wooden cutting food set helps children develop motor skills and coordination whilst encouraging them to learn about healthy food in a fun role play environment.

You can usually tell which children are the kinaesthetic learners. These are usually those who are fidgeting, tapping their pencils, and having trouble staying on task while doing pencil and paper activities or reading silently.
